oh how i wish i would of kept a calendar. of wins and losses. So i couldnt lie to myself. I started because i wanted to have fun. And losing aint fun. Got to the point if i broke even, i felt like i won. If i dont go. i am breaking even. so i dont need to go. Cant lie to myself. i played blackcrap in close to 200 casinos, riding in a semi, and having a little fun at end of driving day. Never once did i do it to make money. And if i did win some money, i gave it away as fast as i could. so i didnt think i had the casinos money. It was the only time i was a winner. And made me think, i earned the right to win the next time. It didnt ..like ya guessed already. i learned, you have a very small chance of winning money most of the time. There are no non for profit casinos. And slots are the worst by far. and i used wander around feeling sorry for the suckers putting their good money into those slots. Had a lot of time to try to figure out a system...System players, are what makes the casinos smile. Card counters,,,that is a whole lotta work, and even MIT loset money.......Casinos mostly win. But. once you realize....your paying for fun, at a casino. Thats all your gonna get, and misery is free. I like hearing all the gambling stories. As long as i learn from them, I learned that playing blackcrap is the only place i can go, and be happy and sad so many times in an hour. Was it fun? yeah, was it a lot of fun.....oh, the addreline i was looking for i bought. the endorfines i got, was paid for. Im 71, perhaps wiser. learned alot. played 9 hands for 500 over the last 12 years, 8 of them i won, one was a blackjack. Now if i ever, ever, play that big again. i know i will lose. and i will lose my record. so i wont, and i dont play big ever, and i dont go much, and i just do it to be around people. Thats my way of being a winner. And not going makes ya a winner every time. Perhaps there is a reason, that "Sin" is right in the middle of their name. If they called themselves CA "sucker" o......would ya go? casuckero...i dont think so. I hope ya never bottom out on gambling...ya dont have to. May the Lord be with the suffering souls. They only start owning ya, when ya come in thru the front door. thanks for letting me share, and ramble on so.
Name: Jae-eun Kwon Callsign: Casino Age: 24 Nationality: South Korean Affiliation: MEKA squad pilot (currently), Talon (currently), Formula 1 (formally) Role: Support Health: 300hp total (200 health, 100 armour) Speed: 6 metres per second Lore: Jae-eun Kwon had a long line of South Korean heritage, but his father moved to Monte-Carlo to work in the many casino’s that worked there, when he was young so he grew up heavily inspired with the annual Grand-Prix and decided he was to become a driver in the future. Once he turned the legal age to compete, he went to the try-outs but could not beat his rival’s time so turned to the one person who he knew could help him, Maximilien. Jae-eun Kwon’s father was indebted to the Omnic for helping him with… other matters and worked closely with him in his Casino Monaco. Swearing himself loyal to Maximilien and his association Talon, Jae-eun Kwon entered the Grand-Prix and his rival mysteriously never turned up to compete. After making it into the big leagues for many years, and nearly beating world records multiple times whilst making his way up to the Talon inner council, Jae-eun Kwon was forced to quit the sport after an effective immediate order from the South Korean government to help with the Gwishin Omnic attacks they were experiencing. Other council members were initially against him returning, but Maximilien managed to persuade them as it was another organisation they were infiltrating. Now Jae-eun Kwon defends both his homeland using La Princesse Sereine and a more inconspicuous MEKA when working on missions for Talon. Description: Casino rides a light green hoverbike which has a windscreen going over him and a pair of fins pointing backwards. The MEKA has a gun positioned just underneath the windscreen and a mortar found on top of the MEKA.

Ability 1: Jae-eun Kwon fires anti-healing grenades which when splash on enemies, have a -50% anti-heal whilst dealing damage to the enemies (there is a 1.0 second delay between shooting each grenade, MEKA can store 3 grenades like Junkrat’s mines. Grenades are shot from canon on top of the MEKA. If an enemy gets hit by a second or third grenade the 6 second timer resets). Damage: 70 per grenade Type: Arcing Projectile Speed: 30meters per second AoE: 5m diameter Duration: 6 seconds Cooldown: 1 grenade is generated every 8 seconds Headshot: X Animation: Jae-eun Kwon slides his right hand down to the right indicator and hits it down with the side of his fist, the indicator will return upright after a moment.

Well, after 6900 rides, I kicked out my first passanger. Lady ordered ride for family member, pax #1 and pax #2 get on the way to the casino. Ride started and pax wanted to add a stop, and I told him,"sure, only if doesn't take more than 5min"...... Oh boy that's when it started going downhill. Pax#1: your getting paid motherfucker Pax#2: OMG Me: slams on breaks get out of my car. Pax#2 gets off, but pax #1 doesn't want to get out. So I dialed 911, and as I'm talking to operator, he decides to get out. I drive off, called Lyft and told them story so my ass gets covered. 2nd kick out of the night.... 2am hits, I'm in downtown, get a request. As I arrived, there's a ton of people everywhere. Dude gets in my car and looked at my phone. I asked who's it for, and he replies with correct name, but I'm not sure if it was him or not since he looked at my phone. I then asked what address they were going to since those details are alot smaller than the pax name, just to verify it was the correct pax. Pax gets so impatient, and tells me to"hurry the fuck up". That's when I lost it and cancelled ride, told them to get out. He starts talking so much shit, he slams the door with all his force, I'm surprised window didn't break. After the door slam, he punches the window extremely hard, that I'm 100% sure he broke his hand. Window didn't break. After that shit, I logged off and drove home.... Kinda felt good kicking out passanger for the very first time. But honestly, this ridesharing experience is getting out of hand in every possible way. Hope everyone had a good night.

May we have a moment of silence for a man named Reynaldo, a man with dementia who died last Sunday.
I met him at my grandma’s apartment complex when I was 8. He was a humble old man who always wore a cowboy hat (he’d let me wear it sometimes). He always hung out with my grandma; going to the casino, riding the bus, visiting me and my family. He only spoke Spanish and I only spoke English. The only phrase we would say to each other was: Me: Hola Reynaldo R: Hola mi ____ Me: Como estas Reynaldo? R: Bien Bien Apparently his family said I was the only one he got close to because in his past years, he wasn’t really there for them. I feel sad for his family for a complete stranger like me can get him to be my friend when I shouldn’t have. The last time I saw him was in 2017 at my aunt’s yard sale because he was close to my grandma and aunt who lived in the same city as him. That was the last time he was healthy. His family started talking to my aunt about his health declining for the last 6 months. His hearing was bad, his sight was bad, and he was diagnosed with dementia. He didn’t remember his children, grandchildren, or how to take care of himself. He was admitted to a nursing home and died there on Sunday at 90 years old. In reality, even if I was there, he wouldn’t have remembered me. But now all I have left to remember was the good times with him. May he Rest In Peace.
America's Card Room "Slot Ride Along" Took my money without updating my Casino Balance?
I like to dabble with slots once in a while, so i put $40 onto the "SLOTS RIDE ALONG" on ACR and after i transfered the money I got an error message saying it couldn't transfer, and then i checked my regular balance and i was down $40, and the caisno page won't even load for me. Does anyone have an idea where i can check my casino balance on the poker client too see if it's there or not so i can transfer it back.
Alright, this has been obsessing me all day, like I'm sure it has with you, so I thought I'd finally throw words down to see what we have so far. I think almost all of the footage we got was from the first, like, 15 minutes of the movie. Especially the Resistance story. Here we go:
The Resistance, after Rey leaves to find Luke, loads up the transports to move somewhere else. The First Order knows where they are, so they gotta run. (This will probably be in the crawl)
Finn is in his coma on the main capital ship (I think it's the Home One, it's still with the Resistance in canon. We see Ackbar helming a big ship and the hangar with the X-wings and new A-wings looks like the Home One's hangar from RotJ. It's pretty close, maybe they changed stuff in the 30 years.). Finn wakes up extremely early and is pretty much set to go. He talks with Poe and Leia on the bridge, like we've seen in BTS pictures, and probably gets the mission to find BDT (DJ?).
I assume the First Order attacks them then, before they leave D'Qar space. We can kind of see the ring in the space battle shots and the planet looks green. (TurcoBangalore has good pictures here).
Finn and Rose (we see they're both on the same ship in BTS photos) escape the battle to find BDT on Canto Bight, Poe runs to the hangar, sees his X-wing blown up by a TIE, and then I kind of lose him. Phasma boards the ship in the same hangar.
I'm going to assume the big capital ship, or Home One, is captured or destroyed, with Poe and a bunch of crew, including Leia, presumably, making it to the other smaller vessels we see fighting. This could be where Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern) comes into play, and where Poe's story is spent, with him rallying the rest of the fleet and running from the First Order.
I'm not sure where the Crait sequence falls, but I don't think it'll be a big one. Probably somewhere in Act II and Poe has to marshal defenders against the walker assault? I don't believe even leaks know much about it.
Act II for Finn and Rose is probably the Dubrovnik stuff with them running around the jail and casino, riding space horses and stuff. It's possible that after this sequence is when they infiltrate the First Order, Finn gets his ass slapped by Tom Hardy, and so on.
Total speculation, but I wonder if BDT leads Finn and Rose onto Snoke's command center? And they get something from there? I'm not sure, I lose the thread a bit after those first big scenes.
Meanwhile, on Ahch-To:
Rey trains with Luke for a long time, they talk about being Jedi etc etc. She has the rest of that Kylo Massacre Vision (and snaps out of it panting, like the opening shot), she fights the supposed sea monster or whatever.
I presume Kylo and the Knights do end up finding them there somehow, probably through some Force-y Snoke thing. I bet Chewie flies the Falcon against the TIEs that come with (as seen in the teaser), and Luke and Rey kick butt. Presumably.
That's probably all I can glean right now. Hux and Phasma probably follow Poe and Finn/Rose respectively, but who knows (we see BTS stuff of Phasma and Finn together, he's robed for the camera, but I bet he's wearing his FO officer costume). No idea where Maz is. Edit: My Home One picture was tiny.
Decided we needed a ride. Went and rode the strip. It’s weird seeing casinos and parking structures dead empty. The traffic was much less than normal, but seemed to be a fair number of people just cruising as well.
Riding down the freeway with 2 randoms after robbing the Casino, after one of them keeps turning the radio off I Want It That Way - Backstreet Boys comes on the radio and no one turns it off. Just cruising after a robbery listening to the Backstreet Boys.
