Re: Automaton

Hello Dustin,
I searched the forum so I wouldn't repeat the post.
I saw it and just wanted to share.
It is very remarkable.

I stopped in their shop last year and bought a couple DVDs.

CC theft is very widespread. On Fox News a man advises checking your cards activity daily. I've had to dispute a number of charges that were not mine.

What is this deck for?

I was stacking a deck (Osterlind)I had lying around and found it wasn't quite right. I sorted the cards and it contains black odd, red even in pairs. Two AS, two 3S etc. What is it? Did I buy it or set it up for something?

Re: Carnival scams

The article is as creative as the train on the cover. However he did come close on the "cat rack". There are still "flats" and "alibis" working today, but you don't see them very often. Most games today just "sell" stock.

Re: Is anyone going to Blackpool this year?

The Hilton is sold out Saturday night. Sometimes they save rooms till the last minute for their Honors members. It's a modern business hotel. The Ruskin isn't a dump, although the rooms can be small. The room I had was so small you had to back in 'cause you coudn't turn around.
