Skiing and Gambling and Shooting, in that order

[ #22653 ]

I am taking every Monday off for a few months, to go skiing. Good stuff.

I pulled my hamstring on Dec. 22 in a hockey game. It did OK today on the slopes (I never go down more than intermediate anyway, so not a ton of stress, but a good amount). I have to decide if I think it has healed enough to play this season of hockey, but I am optimistic.

There's a casino less than three miles from my house, that I didn't know about until recently. It's not huge, but a decent size -- 22K sqaure feet, 425 slots, 10 tables -- but it's back in the woods away from any main road, so I'd never seen it. There's also a gun range about seven miles away. On a date, should I go shooting first, gambling second, or vice versa?

  • On a date, should I go shooting first, gambling second, or vice versa?

    Well, you could ask your date for her preference. Then you could check with your wife.

    • Almost perfect answer. Now that it is the 21st century, you should have said "check with your significant other".
      • When I last met Chris (aka pudge), he had a wife with him.  (OSCON in 1999)  Now that it is the 21st century (and a decade later) he might have an SO rather than a wife, but I prefer to assume that people have not changed marital status unless I have information to the contrary (and it was only half a decade later when I wrote the reply).

    If you are gambling a lot of money, and aren't good at handling losses, I'd say shoot first and ask suicidal questions later, after you've run out of bullets. :-)

  • and shooting second.
    As to gambling, why do you want to throw away the money you've worked so hard to acquire?
  • I suppose if you were looking to really mix things up well you could shoot gamblers and then gamble with shooters, but it doesn't sound like a good idea. :)

    You are what you think.
