So what do you guys do when you lose your keys?! We have strangers drop them off in mailboxes and dutiful amputees mail them back to us.
You can't mean that everyone keeps their address on their key ring. Even for Canada, that seems awfully trusting.

Thanks for consideration as an alternate.

Should I sneak in, I'd like my charity to be Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies (GRRR).

I'm just glad I don't have to pick a number. Takes some of the pressure off.

Re: Charity rOOTlette 2017: July 10, 7pm Vegas time @ Bellagio

I would like to double the chances for gregorio's selection of the National Education Alliance for BPD but since I can't—I just did a double-check of the rules—let's see if the International Bipolar Foundation can get lucky again:

ninetynine99
#19
International Bipolar Foundation


In addition, I've shipped $50 by paypal to gobbo and asked that he place $10 each for me on 0, 9, 19, 29 and 36—just cause I'm feeling like those are lucky numbers.

It's a pleasure to be playing!

That's some solid spacing between numbers. You should talk him into playing them on a Keno ticket too.

LOL at you noob—those numbers are obviously not random enough for Keno.

Awesome idea, although I have no desire to steal money from the disadvantaged.

Malucci (can't bold on my phone, could be just because I'm dumb, let's not blame the phone) I'll take #26 and go with St. Jude Children's Hospital.

Honored to be nominated gang, and really cool/classy thing to do chopstick. Will float gobbo some cash for my numero.

About 24 hours left for Bigdaddydvo, Larry Legend, Gin 'n Tonic, Alobar, and ChaseNutley26 to select their #s and charities, otherwise the alternates are going to start locking slots up.

The roulette table is in the corner of Bellagio's high limit room, so yes you could totally bring a chair in and have a corner seat.

Okay someone needs to fill me in on the Alobar in jail story and/or joke, I clearly missed something at some point. The first time or two I saw a post referencing it I assumed it was a joke...

I could swear I already wrote up an answer to this... Did it get mod snipped?!

Close! The War Amps mails every noble Canadian a key tag for their address with a serial number on it. The serial number is tied to their mailing database. If you lose your keys, other kind Canooks can return them by dropping them off in any mailbox. The War Amps hires amputees to manufacture and process these lost tags. To date, they've safely returned over a MILLION sets of keys to their rightful owner, at no cost.

This is in addition to the myriad services they provide amputees and their families. They do tremendous work with children. If any of this sounds particularly awesome to you, consider giving to the War Amps. They could really use a hand. Or a leg up.

I have a hard time thinking this sort of program in America wouldn't be an enormous boon to the thriving fields of burglary and fencing.

I think my kid brother did get his license back once after he lost it and someone dropped it in the mailbox. Of course this was weeks later and he'd already gotten a new one. Still, they could have come harvested his kidneys so win win all around.
