By the time they are built, people will recognize gambling for the nasty addiction it really is and it will be banned in all states except Nevada.

Not a bad bet, eh....Just a guess of course..but ya'll are the ones who started all these insane bans.....I can't wait to say I told ya so.

<quoted text>If they are banned the way cigarette smoking will be totally banned all over the USA that would be fine. But somehow I doubt casinos will ever be banned. Cigarettes yes but casinos no. You will never say I told you so. You see people can stop gambling but smokers are horribly addicted to nicotine and cant stop lol
Casinos are a source of entertainment. Smoking is just an addiction.
You have never heard of gamblers annon? Gambling is also an addiction. One that has caused the loss of jobs and homes. Broken marriages have been a result as well, because of the financial difficulties. Cigarettes cost about 5 dollars a pack, but a night of gambling can go into the 100's.

Not all smokers do what you say. Some just enjoy one or two a day. That is not an addiction. Tell me, do you win more than you lose every time you go? If you don't then you are considered an addict also.

<quoted text>No dummy, whether I lose or win dosent matter to me its the shows the meals the friends that I go with.. Just like you hanging out in a neighborhood bar just a little classier. An addict is not someone who loses or someone who wins you dumb lieing jerk. An addict is a smoker who cant stop even if they want to. If i have something else to do on a weekend I do it. If you have something else to do you still smoke thats an addict.
Wow, you have upgraded your name calling from idiot, to dummy and jerk..Thats very good...
You are worth another copy and paste.... Just keep following me and this is what you will find.

Now go be a goot little german and go play in the street.

Of course I would not say that to a non-smoker,,they are not crazy....It's you and other Anti-American folks I have a problem with..

guess what,,you responded again......so copy and paste for you........LOL

Ok so we went away from the Sands implosion to a smoking fight.
If we want to see whats what we should have a smoking casino and a non smoking casino and see which one does better.
My guess THE SMOKING ONE. Just because you smoke doesnt mean you drink and vise versa. Pea brains think that we are all in the bars every night smoking and drinking. GET A CLUE!
Pea Brains In New Jersey you can't smoke in bars.

WHAT??? Tell me where did you get your 80% 20% idea I would like to read it.
I dont tell the 90% of people not to put on the nasty smelling perfume that chokes me every time I smell it so I don't know non smokers or even ex smokers tell ME not to smoke

I'm not going to go back and fourth with you about smoking. You are a non-smoker and I'm a smoker. Maybe one day I will quit who knows.(I do know one thing I will not tell a smoker to quit just because I quit) We will just have to agree to dissagree but this area is all about the Sands Casino Hotel implosion
That will be on Thursday October 18th at 9:30 pm
And I did read somewhere that this will be the first implosion on the east coast
Are you going to be there?

Here is one chart (from CDC data) showing the smoking rates over the past 50 years. As you can see, the current rate (2004) was 20.9%.

I believe it is the first casino hotel implosion in the east. It certainly isn't the first building implosion. Those happen fairly often.

Hey Aunt Bee,
Nobody is telling you to quit smoking. Smoke all you want. Smoking Restrictions is what we want. Until smoking is proven healthy it shouldn't be allowed in any public or private business. Any business that has employees should be smoke free. All employees deserve to be covered under the "Workplace Smoking Ban" passed many years ago.

As for implosions, Washington D.C. and Baltimore, MD had huge high rise housing complexes blown up a few years ago. 5 or 6 units at one time, saw it on CNN. Boston a few years before that.
Not sure where you are getting first on east coast?

Again Ant Bee smoke all you want just not near me or my family!!!

I heard on the news this morning that the implosion might not happen. The owner of a building next to Sands is challenging it in court. He is afraid it could damage his building. There is a hearing today at 11:00 and the judge will decide if the implosion can proceed.

I just got a call that a building owner near the sands has filed an injunction to delay the implosion. Anyone else heard that?
