    I gamble on cutting edge computer hardware. I gambled on my Catleap 2B very early on and I hit the jackpot. It's a gamble every time I get behind the wheel because most of those id10ts on the road are too busy talking or texting on their phones to pay attention. I do enough gambling with just those things so I don't bet money on other things.

    I don't gamble at all. I'll bet you $100 that folks will lose more money than win.

    You must be physically in Nevada to play. Why would I want to play online if I was in Nevada?? Sit in a hotel room on my computer playing?? This is utterly rediculous if I can't play online outside Nevada however, after reading this I think I'm ready for a two week vacation in Las Vegas and I'll be playing while physically in the casinos. Maybe I'll bring my tablet PC and pull slot machine arms while playing blackjack online.
