If you google 'toke board', Vegas Aces is what comes up first. You can pay to get that kind of thing. Does she?

"pair of pants" is apparently a holdover when pants came in two pieces. One for each leg, then tie together.

I had seen a Prius commercial many times* with the sound off, which is how I get through commercial segments of programs that I haven't recorded. In this one a family loads up a girl's big bass drum in the car and heads to where she plays it in a concert. On the way, a dangerously gigantic doughnut rolls across the road. When the girl's big moment comes in the concert, striking the drum knocks a big hole in it. This is mysterious to watch with the sound off, so I had to see it with the sound on to try and find out 'what the heck' .  Alas, still mysterious. 


If I was paying for this commercial, I'd hate it 


*the doughnut would be funny/exciting/amazing or whatever if it had really happened somewhere. As far as I can tell, something like this is not in the recent news. 


*OK, so it gets your attention. I'd be unimpressed. 


*There is no feature that the car displays that made it safer than any other car when it comes to rolling objects. 


*Who ever heard of a bass drum rupturing from a teenage girl using it? It's reasonable to think that it got damaged by not fitting in the car right! which detracts from:


*I really think one message they wanted to get across was that storage space is good on the Prius, or not as bad as you might think, by showing a bass drum can fit. But they screw this up with the above. 


*You are losing it, OG. Quit taking ads seriously. 


*Good chance you haven't seen it, I realize. In this day and age we don't see the same commercials, they are so targeted for different audiences. This usually keeps me from talking about ads.

I'm kinda of surprised casinos have never embedded player photos in the player cards. They could even scan one from your drivers license and embed it. Or take the usual cheap photo if you don't have one.

the Seminoles did that long ago. They issue cards with the same simple form as always, but you have to validate the card at a special machine that links a license or passport photo. Thereafter, you use the card as you wish, but they can look up that linked photo anytime they want to.

No dental floss in prison

Quote:
The danger of dental floss, according to jail officials such as Bradshaw, is that it can be used to strangle another inmate or a guard, braid a rope for escaping, or even cut through prison bars.
