May be worth contacting the casino and then seeing if the casino has video of your receiving the winnings to verify the serial. If they don't want to help or set things straight, maybe file a police report.

Yep. That’s what I was thinking. 
 

I’ve tried calling the casino 3 times this morning. No answer. For whatever reason Walmart let me keep the bill, so I still have it.

It was a “no go” the casino way. They chose not to do the right thing. 
 

Shreveport, Louisiana. Do not go to Bally’s. They are greedy Pieces of Shit. There are 4 other casinos here you can gamble at. I’ll never go back.

Lame. Definitely contact the police, or perhaps try the US Secret Service office in New Orleans.

Yeah,  that is what you are supposed to do.
 

But I don’t see a situation where I get my hundred dollars. 
 

I’m actually thinking about just framing this bill as a souvenir / conversation piece. 
 

As a fake, it is a damn good one.

Huh?

I could try to insert this bill into a machine, cash it out right away, and get the money.

That would be illegal.

You said you won 500, have you checked the other 100 dollar bills?

Oh.

2 of the hundreds I deposited into the bank on the way home the same day. 

The other 2 came out clean while buying the groceries this morning.

("Groceries" includes cleaning supplies and Easter gifts)

And yes, I had to pay the extra $80 with a card because of the fake bill.

Had the same need recently, but went with a mini-pc instead, using my tablet as a screen and my regular wireless mouse and keyboard. I need a numpad for job purposes, and an above-minimum processor, which doubles the price for laptops compared to what I paid.

The downside is that the tablet makes for a very small screen, and there's no battery, but it works. It's not like I ever actually do any work "on the go" anyway, I need peace and quiet. Those places tend to have a power outlet.

Frankly, I got mine in 2019, but I feel like I should upgrade later this year.

Dunno what's "upcoming" in terms of laptops. Just need a good gaming laptop, something as up-to-date as possible.

Finished out the bowling season with a 207 average!!!  My first time ever finishing over 200 and ended the year with a 730 series (236-239-255), my 2nd best series this season and third best ever.  Had a really good, fun season and it's the first time that after 35 weeks I wish we weren't done.

Rather annoying little episode.

Wanted to pay my weekly visit to my dad. The lady at the reception looked at me wide eyed:

Has nobody called you? 

My initial reaction: Lemme guess, I need to run and get a negative test elsewhere, before I can enter? (their sstuff got hit by a new corona wave, which limited their capabilities to do the tests themselves, so i had to get teested elsewhere last week, no big deal 15 minute walk away is a test center, but of nuisance but no biggy)

Ahum, no. I can't let you in at all. 

No, I obviously hadn't been called. :rolleyes: Lemme guess, facility got hit by a big outbreak.

Yes.

Ok, nevermind. Lemme guess, visit next week is presumably also off. That'd be Easter, if I am not mistaken.

Can't say, yet. You can call us on Thursday, then we might know more.

Ok, that was about an hour on public transport getting there in vain, and another hour getting back. 

Semi-related note. I think Lem is kinda boring and overrated as an author (yes, I am reading the Pirx stories on the bus/train).

Yo mods. Can one of you please give me a pity warning point?

After 7 years it still reads 0. I’m a great believer in rules,  and it is against my nature to break them.

But I do need a prison rep. 

Just tell someone to fuck off. I can suggest someone who regularly posts in the....

Nah, I'll probably get my 4th for suggesting it.

Ha. Great advice. But as I mentioned, I’m a stickler for the rules. 
 

13 years of school and I never once got detention.

Hmmm. I did not know there was a species of chicken penguin. I bet you’d be really tasty, fried up southern style.

I’m sure I would be delicious B).

Not healthy for your heart though. Too much southern fried food.
