Even if he did, what are the people expecting when they show up at his door? "Uhhhh, ya sorry, you got me. I have your phone".

If it's anything like Key West, bring it on. I wonder if there will be a Drag Queen Drop on New Year's Eve?

How Do You Detect Cheating In Chess? Watch the Computer

JimsonJ How to do it in real time? (328 comments)

How about when they are granted super-user access and can see everyone's hole cards? Can't help but remember the Absolute Poker and Full Tilt cheating scandals. Correlating moves was eventually how the culprits were caught. But only well after the fact.

Online Gambling Site Bets On Bitcoin To Avoid U.S. Laws

JimsonJ Not for me, but can see the value... (347 comments)

This is just a temporary solution that will end up buying his site time if the US DOJ decides to shut it down. While I personally think the security risks of Bitcoin outweigh the conveniences, considering that online poker probably isn't going to be regulated anytime soon in the States - I can't blame him for trying. As long as his poker site doesn't get as big as Poker Stars, it probably won't become a target for the U.S. government. Bovada will be the first if the DOJ decides to still go after operators....although I think they are finished following the DOJ's new stance on the Wire Act.

JimsonJ Re:Another idiot (347 comments)

If the US DOJ wants to shut down an online gambling site, they will. Agreed, there is far more recourse they can take beyond the Bitcoin "loophole".

...But not for the stock market. The only way anyone is going to crack the market is by pulling a Bradley Cooper in Limitless. Last call for super drugs.

Missouri Republican Wants Violent Video Game Tax

JimsonJ Why are taxes always the proposed fix (506 comments)

I love how politicians think the solution to mitigating activity is to tax it. I appreciate the sentiment, but can't see how this is going to do anything to help curb violence.

"Superomniphobic" Nanoscale Coating Repels Almost Any Liquid

JimsonJ Athletic Clothing? (104 comments)

I hope this can be used to improve athletic clothing that's supposed to whisk away sweat. Nothing I work out in seems to "work".
