Quick hit

This is one for Brad:

Nevada sports books lose record $2.6 million on Super Bowl.

But those greasy bookies are a stereotype or front men these days. I think you'd be more likely to find actuaries setting the odds. I found the story because I've got an active search going for the 49'ers and they had the previous record.

Thanks, Ken. I knew they must've taken a hit somewhere but I'm sure there are plenty of them who made it big, as well.

I'm not a fan of gambling. To be one you have to be okay with losing hard earned money.

I don't have enough to lose!

I used to be willing to gamble my lunch money, well... on a bet.

I couldn't get anybody to bet on the Patriots if they gave me the points. I wouldn't have considered that gambling.

I'm curious, is all of your spam Nigerians, lotteries, p*nis s*ze and pirated software?

No, I get a lot of british lottery sites, plus some micro soft lottery, and the odd; have cancer, hubby died in the house fire. I do recieve a smattering of Nigerian investment opportunities, but my penis seems to be free from spam related afflictions.
