As a deprived Californian 19-year old, I've only gambled twice.
Once I went to Cache Creek (indian reservation near Sacramento) for my friend's 18th bday... lost about $40 that I expected to lose there, no big deal. Errr... I should say I won -$40 or ($40) given your question
Last summer I went with some friends to Montreal, a swank town for deprived American youngsters like ourselves. At the city casino, I won $40 Canadienne. Sacrebleu! But I didn't feel like a winner.
I'm moving to Canada (pysch!!)
Gambling sucks, whether you win or lose.
Responding to a gambling post on airliners.net while taking a short break from my DAMN DIRTY term paper really puts things into perspective
A very deprived
Now I remember what the non_av forum was like.
