    I've never seen so many in one place as here. Apparently Australia has a bigger gambling problem than any other place in the world.

    Every bar has a big gambling area with a bunch of guys sitting there like zombies.

    They call the slot machines "pokies" here for some reason. And it's not just slot machines either. They bet on fucking everything. Horses, horses with carriages, dogs, football, rugby... There's even an annual SNAIL race that's a big deal and people bet tons of money on.

    It's things like these that just confuse me about this country. What causes people here to get so into it? I wonder...

    I don't get it, either. That kind of stuff is popping up all over around here. There is "video gaming" everywhere now. :rolleye:

    I work WAY too hard for my money to just flush it down the toilet. :fil:

    Oh yeah. Had no idea how crazy it was down there. Got to stay at the Crown Towers in Melbourne. Fucking plush over there. Lots of Chinese coming down to gamble.

    I don't really gamble but I've been to Las Vegas a few times. A casino is a fun place to people watch. It's fun to watch people playing black jack at 100 dollars a hand. Better them than me.

    What gets me is trying to pay for a case of beer in the liquor store and the asshole in front of me wants to pick $50 worth of lottery numbers.

    The big cities are overrun by chinks. I've heard more than one Aussie refer to them as "cockroaches".

    Yep. They love the Chinese for the money they bring... But hate them because they are, well, Chinese.

    Most of them are super rude fucking assholes. It's like they don't know how to act like normal human beings.
