This weekend we went to visit my cousin’s baby girl in Seattle. Other than seeing the baby, we also spent the afternoon in the Seattle Premium Outlets. Tulaip Casino is right next to the outlet mall and it offers a pretty good buffet brunch and the price is very reasonable. It was a fine Sunday afternoon with nice weather and sun shines outside. We have to go through the gambling floor to go to the restaurant. I am surprised by the number of people in the casino. I wonder who would want to waste a fine afternoon inside a casino sitting in front of the slot machines. I always thought gambling in the casino is something to do after dark when everywhere else is closed.
Slot machine is probably the most boring gambling in the casino. It lacks the human interaction at the card or dice table. Slot machine is controlled by computer and it is guarantee the gambler will lose in a long run. In fact many slot machine even have fine prints about its odds written somewhere. Usually it is worse than 0.98, which means on average you will lose your bet after playing 50 times. All the gamblers I saw in the casino are overweight, it is pretty obvious that keep pressing the same button mindlessly and then watching the LCD showing some repetitively graphics won’t burns much calories.. Looking at those oversize gamblers, I can’t help but wondering does intelligence have a negative correlation with obesity. The fatter you are, the dumber you are. I guess I should not criticize but thank them instead, they subsidize my buffer brunch after all.
