Who works at a casino?

In what case does believing in a clairvoyant not cause you to be deserving?

Hell, with my luck last week in Vegas, I could've used said dark arts....

If you don't do anything silly like gambling in the casinos, Las Vegas can actually be fun.  If you can tolerate the obnoxious drunks, the Strip is an awesome place to visit at night.  The Bellagio has tons of cool art galleries worth checking out, and the architecture of the Strip is awesomely over-the-top.  And, of course, I always partake of the many all-you-can-eat buffets in Vegas.  One time, I ate so much at a buffet at the Bellagio that I seriously feared that my stomach was going to burst.  And, of course, it's always great if somebody is paying your way to Vegas, and even better if you're getting paid to be there...

/on my first visit, I remember seeing a poster for the Flaming Lips or some other alt rock band and thinking, "Gee, what a bunch of sell-outs!" before I realized that, hey, I was being a sell-out too...

I've been to casinos in Minnesota, Illinois, Las Vegas, and cruise ships, and I find them pretty boring.  I might piss away $10 if I'm bored, but otherwise I'm just content to watch other people throw away their money.

AFAIC, the whole Las Vegas/Monte Carlo gambling culture seems to embrace all the stupid vices.  I have a mental image of Dean Martin smoking a Lucky Strike while playing baccarat and telling a drunk-driving joke.  Not to mention that Vegas was founded by sociopaths like Bugsy Siegel  Pfoooey.

I hope I get to go to Amsterdam in August on a gig--that's where they have the cool legal vices like prostitution and marijuana.  Too bad Amsterdam isn't famous for its great scuba diving or I'd have to seriously consider moving there.

Wow, clairvoyance, gambling, and living in South Africa.  A perfect trifecta of sorts...
 
2013-05-27 11:55:27 AM
Is Africa just full of ignorant, superstitious rubes?  Or are stories about ignorant, superstitious rubes like stories about prizewinning hogs in some parts of the USA?

Seems like too many stories from that place involve somebody being duped by magical claims.
 
2013-05-27 11:57:54 AM
What a bunch of gullible maroons. Everybody knows that the only way to win at African casinos is to round up all of the albinos, dismember them, and send a bushman to throw their severed genitalia off a cliff at the edge of the world.

My dad likes to play blackjack. When he is in Vegas, he will budget himself blackjack money and treat it like any other entertainment expense. If he breaks even or comes out ahead (and he often does) that's great, but if he doesn't he has the discipline to stop and he still enjoys himself. He doesn't look at it as a loss, he looks at it as money spent to do something he enjoys.

Not everyone has the same discipline to know when to stop but it works for him.

What's really bizarre is that none of her clients asked themselves, "If the charms really work, why doesn't she just clean up at the roulette wheel herself?"

W.C. Fields (or whomever) said that you can't cheat an honest man.  The idiots who buy magic charms or get involved with the Nigerian Minister of Finance do so only because they're trying in their stupid way to dupe the system themselves.

Your dad's very smart that way.  I've thrown away a few bucks in casinos over the years and I'm kinda like him--I'll budget $10 or so and when I throw that away on penny slots, then my visit is over.  The last time I was in Vegas, I spent maybe 10-20 minutes gambling out of a five-day stay.  Actually, I was surprised at how empty the casinos seemed most of the time...

You don't speak Dutch? No kidding. That sentence can be interpreted in at least 5 ways with some creative corrections. Still, good on you for trying.

I have a slight problem with calling it "robbery" if the idiots hand over the goods on their own volition. It isn't really any different than throwing your money away expecting to beat the house.

I put these dupes in the same category as audiences of motivational speakers.

Decriminalized, whatever.

TFA: Many South Africans in both rural and urban areas still cling to beliefs in the dark arts, black magic and voodoo, attributing disease and crimes including rapes, thefts and murders to the vicious "tokoloshe" sprite.

Looks like there really isn't much difference between South Africa and the bible belt.

The backstreets around casinos are lined with pawn shops, liqor stores and "psychics". I guess there must be enough degenerate gamblers and stupid people rolling through the casinos to sustain these businesses.

I consider what this woman did to be equivalent to the churches in America and how they dupe the superstitious into giving them their hard earned money for some pie in the sky false dream.

As for gambling, every single person gambles. Gambling is required to survive as a human. Crossing the street is gambling. Buying a house is gambling. Getting a new job is gambling.

Everything in life is about assessing risk/reward and making a choice based on that ratio.

We would not exist if our ancestors didn't gamble. Gambling is part of human nature and it isn't inherently evil.
