"Banish the tax! Romanian witches 'frighten' lawmakers into voting against levy

" .....Lawmakers Alin Popoviciu and Cristi Dugulescu of the ruling Democratic Liberal Party drafted a law where witches and fortune tellers would have to produce receipts, and would also be held liable for wrong predictions, a measure which was part of the government's drive to increase revenue.

Romania's Senate voted down the proposal Tuesday. Popoviciu claimed lawmakers were frightened of being cursed. ......"

OK Konane, this is what I have

This was a realtime confirmed Keno happening @ Boulder Station Casino in Vegas. An old timer & regular casino parlor player actually won $30,000.00 by unorthodoxily wagering on one number #12; the suits had accpted the bet, customer was paif off - seemingly end of story. Just a flucke or lucky ???

Segrams Chairman Brofman once said:
"To make $110 form a $100 is hard work however to make $110 Million dollars from $$100 Million is inevitable..."

Who, in the their right mind, would make such a bet unless they had a pre-tested winning game plan with an edge ???

I am not invested with the casino or Vegas, but if some one should like to verify the story ( I did in person) call the Boulder casino and speak to the keno parlor supervisor or senior writer in charge & check for yourself.


Anything is possible with an edge....

Thanks Eddessaknight! I'm thinking the edge you're talking about is belief they can do it, and in the case of the witches vs. lawmakers a belief that it can be done to them.

Thanks Maddog! Like Samantha did. How she'd handle the current bunch on the hill would make an entertaining tv series.
