Re: My home casino

I can't believe you even think this is a good idea. Besides the fact that your parents will go to jail even though they're "cool with it", what about when you lose your friends when they lose in your casino? It doesn't matter that a gambler loses his money by his own will, a gambler will always project his losses on someone or something else so that he doesn't have to accept responsibility for the loss. If your friends are losing at your place, they know that you're in charge of it and they will then turn their sour attitude towards you, destroying years and years of friendship...over what? Over losing to someone else? Think about this man, there's so many effects that go unseen, it's really not worth it on so many levels.

I'm sorry you don't have time to forget about old threads. I try to set aside some time every day for forgetin' stuff. Good for the soul.

Prison?

comparing Prison to County Jail is like saying you once banged Jessica Alba when really you banged some random drunk chick with brunette hair at a fraternity party

Not sure what you're trying to do here, but it's one of two things:

1) You're an idiot and you posted in the wrong thread;

or

2) You're just an idiot.

Option #2 imo.

If you're drunk enough, same thing IMO. So just stay wasted in prison/county jail.
