I Am The Night

I can't recall if it's canon or not but I'm pretty sure counting cards is one of the zillion things Batman can do. So of course that's what immediately came to mind when I heard our next Bruce Wayne, Ben Affleck had been caught counting cards in Las Vegas last week. Why, Ben? Why?

Las Vegas Has Its Own Sex Plane Service, and You Can Get Married on It, Because Vegas

All told, I'd be more surprised if this didn't exist.

You know, the modern world can be really distracting, and it's tough to get away and have some peace and quiet. Now, you and your partner/significant other/lover (no judgment) can get away from it all by joining the mile high club all alone in your own sex plane... aside from that guy who's piloting your flying sex box.

Online Casinos Are Morally Wrong, Says Guy Who Owns Actual Casino

Far be it for us to accuse, but is there just a chance that Mr. Adelson is laboring under a bias of some sort here?

As online gambling with real money continues to make small but real inroads across the United States, people are starting to look more closely at the implications of playing online poker with real life cash. Yesterday afternoon, Bloomberg Television interviewed something of an expert in the field in business magnate Sheldon Adelson, who had a lot to say about the rise of online gambling -- specifically, that he was morally opposed to its existence. What's so interesting about that, you ask? Nothing really, except that Adelson made most of his considerable fortune from -- you guessed it -- owning a bunch of brick-and-mortar casinos around the world.

The Fix is in: Bookies Bet Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Will Be The Holiday Season’s Best-Selling Game

Holiday shopping has become a bit of spectacle, hasn't it? Between the rise of Black Friday sales and the mass hysteria that can ensue over "it-gifts", it's not hard to see how you could get a sort of disturbing, secret enjoyment about watching the world's mad dash to buy the right presents. For some of us, though, watching simply won't be enough... Which is why a couple of UK-based online bookies are setting odds for what video game will sell the most copies this holiday season. Of course, the odds heavily favor Call of Duty: Black Ops II. With Call of Duty games winning the holiday race for the last three years, how could they not?

Finally: You Can Play Desert Bus on Your Phone

The saga of Desert Bus is as long and storied as the game itself. Originally created in 1995 by magicians Penn and Teller for the short-lived SegaCD, Desert Bus was merely a piece of a much larger suite of games called Smoke and Mirrors. Though never released, Desert Bus gained much notoriety as it involved driving from Tucson from Las Vegas at 45 mph in real time.
