I got your luckbox right here

by BSN

So, our office did one of those Christmas exchanges where you chose something at random from under the tree, or you could take a present someone already opened. The first present was 10 lottery scratch-offs. I was the second-to-last to choose, and I grabbed it instead of picking the beers-of-the-world left under the tree.

Then, to torture the rest of my work-mates, I scratched them off at the rate of one ticket every 2 hours. After cashing in the free tickets I'd won, I wound up $18 ahead.

How sick is it that I was more excited about that $18 than any other Christmas present?

Friday Funny

by BSN

Stumbling on the web this morning and came across this funny:

(+ware) I rear-ended a car this morning. So there we are alongside the road and
(+ware) slowly the driver gets out of the car . . . and you know how you just get sooo
(+ware) stressed and life seems to get funny?
(+ware) Well, I could NOT believe it . . he was a DWARF! He storms over to my car,
(+ware) looks up at me and says, "I AM NOT HAPPY!"
(+ware) So, I look down at him and say, "Well, which one are you then?"... and
(+ware) THAT'S when the fight started . .

Florida > South Carolina

by BSN

As some of you know, I am addicted to starting niche blogs. I know it's a problem, but I'm not ready to get help just yet.

One of my favorite, and by far the most popular of these blogs is my Florida Sun Dog blog. While the most popular content is trashy stuff about Jessica Sierra, Debra Lafave, and Jaymee Wallace, I have a series of posts that seems to really be catching on where I compare Florida to other states in a "7 Reasons Florida is Better Than..." format.

Today's post is why Florida is better than South Carolina. I figured the G-Vegans might enjoy. ;-)

Poker Secrets: Tim Tebow

by BSN

For poker-playing members of Gator Nation, some Tim Tebow Facts:
  • Tim Tebow's hand is the only hand that beats a Royal Flush.
  • Tim Tebow has the greatest Poker-Face of all time. He won the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite holding only a Joker, a Get out of Jail Free Monopoloy card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game UNO.

Commodore Online Casino

by BSN

Wow, here's a site I haven't seen before: Commodore Online Casino.

There is a range of games here that I haven't seen from other online casinos. They will be releasing poker rooms shortly, but the selection of games is so wide that you'll probably find something to keep you busy. There is the usual games you see online - blackjack, slots, video poker, and that favorite of poker bloggers everywhere, Pai Gow. There are also some lottery games like Keno and Scratch & Win, as well as 3D Horse Racing. I tried Horse Racing with my $2,000 of play money, because US residents can't play for money at Commodore Casinos right now.

Why horse racing? Because I know nothing about the sport. What better way to begin educating myself about the sport of kings than to go through betting simulations in an online game? That's the big draw to these casino sites, for me - I get to learn the games at my own pace before I wager anything.

I also got hooked on my leak, Blackjack. I can't help myself, even though it was a play table, I still enjoyed the action, trying to remember my basic strategy without using a cheat-sheet.

So, check out Commodore Casino, the sponsor of this post, which has the most robust range of Casino Games Online that I've ever seen.

Congress to Outlaw College

by BSN

A couple college kids robbed a bank to pay their tuition. Since Congress set the precedent last year of outlawing the activity driving the crime, I fully expect to see legislation introduced shortly to outlaw college.

From Sen. Kyl's website:
I also sponsored legislation to better enforce laws prohibiting Internet gambling, which fosters problems unlike any other forms of gambling. Online players can gamble 24 hours a day from home; children can play without sufficient age verification; and betting with a credit card can undercut a player’s perception of the value of cash – leading to possible addiction and, in turn, to bankruptcy, crime, and suicide. Professor John Kindt of the University of Illinois put it best when he called Internet gambling the “crack cocaine [of gambling]…There are no needle marks. There’s no alcohol on the breath. You click the mouse and lose your house.” (“Online Wagering Under Attack in Congress,” Associated Press, July 10, 2006.)

The Federal Trade Commission has warned that computer-savvy young people are particularly at risk, and the National Collegiate Athletic Association, concerned about the risk to college students, urged a legislative remedy. The negative impact of Internet gambling addictions among young people is well documented. For example, the one-time president of the sophomore class at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania robbed a bank to pay off his Internet gambling debt...
Time for a new study. I've already written the headline: "Go to class, lose your cash"

Now to just find the statistics to shape to fit the premise of my study...

Anyone else have a better title?
