Q, I am posting this especially for you. You don't seem to understand the deep and sophisticated principles we cherish and hold so dearly here in America. I ran across this link and it illustrates them far better than I could opine. I know you will think this is a sinister plot, that GW and DR have contrived. Maybe, maybe not! But, if you will try these principles for one week, you just may come over to our side. /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Thanks , Candyman . Great pictures.
If only it were so .
We live in two different worlds I'm afraid .

Later , when I have got time , I will tell you a few story's about when I worked in an illegal Casino in the Red Light area in Amsterdam , which was placed between a brothel and a Strip club.

My life was threatened on a daily basis . /ccboard/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

The Chinese sailor.

I used to work in the Playboy club Casino on Park Lane in London. Situated between the Hilton hotel and the Dorchester , it was one of the best jobs I ever had ,although I never knew it ar the time.

The pay was good , the people I worked with were great and on the gaming floor there was never a problem . Although gambling can bring out the worst in people, especially when alchohol enters the equation, the atmosphere was mostly pleasant and civilised.

The first illegal casino/gambling den that I worked in in Amsterdam was an experience i will never forget. It said 'bingo hall'on the sign outside and there was bingo . It was only the other 18 hours that BlackJack, American Roulette , some weird Chinese game and poker were played.
Actually , sometimes poker games would run two days solid.

Our clients were mostly subhuman. Intimidation was the sport and we , the dealers were the prey. They could smell if you were an old hand or a newbie.

There was very little support from the pit boss[ who was totally off his head on cocaine every day ], so you had to stand your ground and handle things the best you could.

Many dealers didnt come back after the first shift.

Most of the sex clubs , hookers and gambling is confined to an area called De Wallen, commonly known as 'the Red Light district.

Its a major attraction for tourists and in the summer there are hoards of them .

Now and again an innocent tourist would wander in off the street. Can you imagine, 20 Chinese, 10 turks, 20 Surinamers and Mr and Mrs Normal in their Bermudas. HaHaHa
My first words wre usually , "hang on to your bag dear" or "call these people a Taxi". Strange thing is , they all made it out alive.

There was a Turkish man , big guy , real nasty . He would shout ,threaten and he always lost [ which didnt cheer him up at all /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif] His favourite sport was telling everybody what they done wrong and why he lost because THEY were too stupid. This man was hated by one and all.

One day he is giving this little Chinese guy a hard time to the point that the Chinese guy has had enough. He stands up and pushes the Turk and he falls backwords off his stool. The guy hit the floor, there was a pause of maybe 2 seconds , then the Chinese guy and a couple of friends laid into him.
Nobody in the room was going to miss this opportunity and to a man, the whole room jumped in to give him a kick. Never saw him again .

A week later another casino on the next block got closed down by the police and we got a lot of their customers.

This was bound to lead to a little friction because we only had 6 tables and our regulars couldnt get a seat or a box. It was madness.


Sometimes I thought I was in the Wild West. Anyway , a fight breaks out and its every man for himself. You know in the old Westerns when the wagon train is attacked by the Indians and they make a circle. That was us.

There we are, standing in the middle of 6 tables with our floats while this bar room brawl goes on around us . The two bouncers come running up the stairs with their baseball bats , take one look and head off back down the stairs again. And this was on the dayshift!

Which brings me back to the Chinese sailor. This guy was from somewhere in China so remote the other Chinese could hardly understand him . He had jumped ship and was into a poker game that had been going all night.

The pot was piling up when he leans over and picks up a plastic bag which is in the bin next to him . He then proceeds to have a piss in the bag under the table . He must have been desperate because he was at it for a while. He produces this bag of piss , stands up and throws it out the window!

I have no idea if it hit any passer by , nobody dared stick their head out the window.

What cracked me up was that he didnt think there was anything wrong with this. When the manager spoke to him he was like "whats the problem ".

The good old days in the Twilight Zone. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

HaHaHaHa!!!! That's a good one. I can imagine that bag heading for a crowded sidewalk.

Here's one from my past .... I had just gotten my private pilot's license and was looking for a good cross-country adventure trip when my company decided to send me to Phoenix to recruit at Arizona State University. Well, it's about a thousand miles from Dallas to Phoenix, so I decided I'd just fly myself out there and back. My employer (Texas Instruments at the time) agreed to reimburse me the cost of commercial airfare, so it would be fun and not too expensive.

Anyway, I planned this trip to include several stops out west plus a side trip into Mexico. My last stop before the continental divide was in Deming. I tanked up on a large soft drink and was approaching the mountains when I realized that I needed to take a leak. There was nothing, I mean nothing, on the ground but rocks and tumbleweeds. No place to even think about landing. After about another hour my back teeth were floating and my eyeballs were misting over with a yellow haze.

Finally I decided I was going to piss in my pants if I didn't do something, so I slowed the plane down as much as I dared and trimmed the elevator to keep it holding altitude in a near-stall. When I had everything stable I let go of the controls, popped the top off the 44-ounce plastic cup I had been drinking from, and proceeded to "fill it back up". Then I pushed the window open and dumped the cup outside.

What I somehow miscalculated was the strength of the wind even at that slow speed. The toss didn't even make it out the window. Suddenly there was a mini-hurricane inside the plane, with 44 ounces of piss flying circles around the cabin. I think every drop remained airborne until it found the windshield, the control panel, or me.

Lucky the humidity is really low in that part of the country. By the time I landed at the Mesa airport I was dry, but crusty. And probably smelled like a fire plug.

ROTFL, that is one of the funniest stories I have heard. I like the mini-hurricane description. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Given the story of your past, I now understand your disdain for an active judicial system. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Always keep a funnel and plastic tubing handy in the cockpit. I use to have a Luscombe with that set-up. Me and a buddy use to take a cooler of beer and go flying. We passed the funnel back and forth many times. /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Dont tell me YOU were a dealer !! If you were you had to be a blackjack dealer cause all they ever do is whine all the time and beef about everything. So you fit the criteria quite nicely.
Btw- i know a few guys that worked over there and they did say it was a blast. Non stop drugs and broads, what more could you want ?
