WannaBe: Don't like moves on the bottom and I have to look/search for specific move number. =) With CVD II, it is on the right, and forty moves on first page, evenly divided. Very easy to find a specific move and also move variations, too.

  WannaBe: Today's "Magic Number": 23,955

If Dow closes below that number (currently at 23,706.70) it will be a "Correction". (10% off high)

  WannaBe: My Lakers under bet is all but done, 2 more wins and I'm finished.

Lookin' at the remaining games, I can see Lakers winning 2 more games.

March 28th home game vs Dallas, April 1st at Sacramento; and then the final 2 games vs Houston and/or Clippers. (Will be meaningless game for Houston, resting starters and possibly for Clippers)

Number 27?!?! What the??

That number is for losers! You should go with 28!

<28, greatest number in the world All other numbers are liked by little girls
28, number one number in the world
All other numbers are inferior to 28>

21 is the only "real" number in the twenties.

Fibonacci baby!

<technical draw:

I really, really, wanted to help the poor.
So I bet $500 dollars. You lost!

(The first wheel I saw was on a billboard, so your bet had no chance. You really need to rethink your wheel selection method)

You can send me a check for the $490
you owe me.

Haha! You fell for the dumbest tourist trap in Vegas. The old billboard roulette. The dumb tourist sees that the ball is painted on number 3 and still they bet on other numbers. By the way if you're ever in Brooklyn let me know. I have a hot real estate deal for you.

No, that was your bet.

I had already lost my money at the
Craps Table billboard.

Being an experienced gambler, I like to
play the billboards with lower house
edges.
