Wanna Go To Vegas

Rock, Paper, Scissors??? Well hell if adult games are illegatl why not?? Walking through the mall, I noticed the petioners are out gathering signitures for future possible laws...I signed all three...the first one was an initiative that will ban all air hunting...this seems fair to me...if the hunted can not fly by its own means then the hunter should not be able to either...fair is fair... if bird hunters want to fly around in their planes and take out their prey...well that seems a little silly but a little more fair then being able to spot your prey form the air, land on top of it and smash it dont you think???
The second one had something to do with monies for schools and such...and the third was a petion to the state for a state lottery or power ball type game...funny how we dont allow "gambling" but we have several of the largest "lotto" style games in our state...The Nenana Ice Classics have been going for years...cant say this is not a gamble...then theres BINGO, texsas Hold'em tournaments, and pull tabs all over town...a "rock paper scissors" tournament, to say nothing of the Fishing Derbys all over the state...So all in all I do not see how a lotto style game will harm our state...nor do I feel casinos that offered slot's would damage us...seems providing something for people to do, that did not charge an exuberant cover charge to listen to a crowd of people attempt to hear an amature band; that may or may not resemble music, would lower our population of people who have nothing to do but cause trouble. After reading todays paper they can no longer use the excuse that "gambling promotes crime and prostitution" seems to me Alaska has had an abundance of both for quite a long time...Maybe gambling would give the "johns" (sorry bro) and "druggies" something else to spend their time and money on..."If you cant beat them Join them." Britts got 659 nickels saved up for me when the time comes I will be first in line for the nickel slots...............................................................my reality

In response to your posting from this morning, just returned from opening the store. Stopped by the inn to have a cup of coffee, two of the regular customers split $10.00 worth of pull tabs, they won $3.00. I never play pull tabs, the odds are really against you, but since they had bought $13.00 worth without winning, I decided to invest $10.00. First pull, I got $1.00, next to the last pull I got $100.00! Bring on the slots to Alaska, I will vore in favor of them!

Slots are better then Bingo....Lets do it.

And your stupid word verification is like 20 letters long...stupid thing.

Heidi, you bring up a good question that I have been wondering about. What is the purpose of the "word verification", I mean like the word is front of you, all you have to do is copy the letters that see, it is not a great security device, unless you cannot read English. If you cannot read English, you wouldn't know how to read the directions nor respond to the post. In my brief time in blogging, I have lost two very good, wordy, but good comments because I thought they were published and I left the comment section. I really do not see any great need for them as they do nothing but make you recite the alphabet, a state trooper will have you do that also if they suspect that you have had a touch of berries prior to driving. Is that the reason for the word verification, the blog site wants to make sure you are sober when posting comments - I resent that, I feel I can drink and blog at the same time! As wew speak, I see that I am going to have to type "mmhxxfax" to publish this comment. Are sure that this not some kind of code that is enbedded and eventaully all these codes go to one central location as instructions for some dastardly deed. A "Thought to Ponder", I have to go now, it will take a few minutes to type inmy access code!

I have been told that it slows the "Spamers" (people who try to advertise on your blog) but I haven't seen a spam in quit a while. I often won't comment if the word verification is to long. I switch letters so often it will often take me ten times to post a comment. Maybe that is because i do have problems drinking and blogging...

You have raise several good points here...am I signing my sole to the devil or aiding some terrorist group by posting this?

I read that word verification keeps computers from responding to your blog. This security device makes sure it is an actual human typing...thus prevents computer generated "spam".
