Containment and a temp-ban are fully appropriate. What sane person around here can possibly misspell "gobbo"? That's never been done in the history of the internet, for God's sake!

She knew exactly what she was doing. Could have easily posted in containment thread like every other time.

She wanted to take a break anyway but there's no way she can resist posting. Breaking containment got her the break plus she gets to complain about being picked on.

Who accused MLY of being sane? She (likely knowingly) violated containment to make a donation to an OOT sanctioned charity fundraiser and gets temp banned for doing so. It's really ****ed-up and hypocritical to take her money and ban her.

I hope one of her numbers spite-wins this thing.

I do not think MLYLT has this excuse. Along the same lines, there was a chinese reassurance near my old house called "hunan taste." I naturally read it as "human taste."

HT,

Nothing like having a good chinese reassurance nearby, never know when you might need that little pick-me-up.

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

Some people have chosen to make their own donations directly. Some have chosen to ship money to gobbo and have their physical money ride on the wheel at Bellagio. Here's the breakdown that I have as of right now:


Confirmed received by gobbo / physically there:

chopstick ($5/number)
ec_outlaw ($3/number)
goofball ($1/number)
golddog ($1/number)
JL514 ($1/number)
Yakmelk ($3/number, $15 on 15)
amead ($1/number & $100 to winner)
marknfw ($2/odd numbers & $64 to winner)
DoctorZangief ($1/number & $15 on 7)
El Diablo ($20 on 22 & $10 each on 1, 12, 16)
MeLoveYouLongTime ($5 each on 23, 14, 10, 9, 32)
ninetynine99 ($10 each on 0, 9, 19, 29, 36)
Doozie350 ($5 each on 17, 19, 23 & $8 on 12)
GMLAW ($5 on 34)
de captain ($26 on 6, $5 on 17)
Bighurt52235 ($5 on 35)
Howard Treesong ($50 on 17)
offTopic ($20 on 28)
Malucci ($6 on 26)
Very Josie ($10 on 21, $50 direct to NV Partnership for Homeless Youth)
gobbo ($20 on 17)
REDeYeS88 ($20 each on 2, 12, 15, 22, 32)
Didace ($20 on 4)
Steve350 ($25 on 14 & $25 on 18)
pokeraz ($37 to winner)
amoeba ($50 to winner)
SGT RJ ($25 to winner)
daryn ($cheddar on #throwdown)


Donating directly on their own or have not yet sent to gobbo:

jmakin ($20 to winner)
Rexx14 ($20 to winner)
zikzak ($37 to winner)
LFS ($20 to winner)
Doozie350 ($20 to winner)
lapka ($20 to winner)
GusJohnsonGOAT ($10 to each of the numbers on either side of winner)

If you think you sent money to gobbo and your name does not show up in the first block of names, or the amount looks incorrect, please let gobbo & I know ASAP so we can resolve that. So far everything looks pretty good.



Based on the above and absent any subsequent shipping or people showing up in person to splash the pot, this is currently what the table at the Bellagio will look like for tonight's spin:

35Bighurt52235Pitch In For Baseball$23
327offsuitCompassionate Care ALS$18
26MalucciSt. Jude Children's Hospital$22



$1123 total physically in play! We cracked $1000!!


The winner is guaranteed an absolute minimum of $973 at this point! Can we get that one up to $1000 in the next 2.5 hours as well?

Well, we certainly can, given that it would only take all of $4 to make it happen - $1 on each of the four remaining $16 numbers adds $35 min to each if they win. That would bump the min win up to $1008. I'll do it myself if no one else does it before spin time.




gobbo and I will be meeting at Snacks in Bellagio at ~18:30 to handle last minute logistics, then over to the High Limit room around 18:55 for the spin. Anyone is welcome (and encouraged) to join us at any point. I'll also be buying gobbo dinner afterward (probably AYCE sushi) as thanks for handling the Paypal stuff, anyone is welcome to join us for that as well.





less than 3 hours left!


let us go go go!!!!

Shipped a hundo to Gobbo. If its in time, drop $20 on #15, #17, #10, #31, #3

If I've cut it too close, just ship $100 even to the winning number.

I'll also guarentee 1k for the win if I get the $20 on each number. If the winner ends up at $973, I'll ship the $27 or whatever to get it to 1k.

Good job running this ****, Chop.

Heading over to the Bellagio shortly.

Absent any changes between now and spin time, looks like $1123 total in play for the gamboooool (really $1127 min tho)


Minimum win for the winning charity based on:

1. wheel spin ($16 * 35 = $560)
2. donations received ($276)
3. direct pledges ($137)

will be $973 (really $1008 tho)


If gobbo binks his #17, the ACLU will win $3843





let

us
