    Nope, I don't gamble, never have, never will.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Do you like Casinos?

    Years will pass between my visits to a casino, but when I do go I enjoy it. Roulette's my game.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Well, I am still in my twenties, for the next few months. That said, I still keep the music I enjoyed in my teens on my playlists because well, Tupac Shakur is no less good a rapper, in fact most of hip-hop now is trash to me.

    My taste in cars hasn't changed much either, I will likely always favor mid-engined lightweight agile vehicles for sport. The reason being, these were not conclusions or tastes I arrived at simply because of the inexperience of youth; I arrived at my positions by reason.

    Much like my political views, which many older adults insisted would change as I aged, but did not. Why do you ask? How is denying what you already know is good an evolution?

    A comedian said that we listen to the music we listen to and yearn for the cars we do because that was the music and car we experienced when we were getting laid for the first time. Yes, a gross simplification, but not far from the truth in principle, which is that we like those things because they remind us of ourselves at our freshest and most free, and extraordinarily little is due to reason.

    People are highly irrational beings, but funny enough we tend to consistently think of ourselves as rational.

    By the way, the best lobster I ever had was during the first date with the woman who is now my wife.

    What comedian was it? Was it Adam Carolla? Because while I consider myself rational, I am guilty of his "When were you 14?" rule (which was when I became sexually active, a bit early I know.)

    There are bad films for example that I saw before age 15 that I still love and hold a nostalgic view of, despite the fact they are objectively bad. Where as most people 15+ rightly regarded such films as stupid.

    As I said, I have no argument against the effect company has on the subjectivity of taste. I learned that from Penn and Teller's Bull****, where Penn had what he knew was a cheap canned meal but when with the people he loved said, "tastes pretty good."

    Also, congratulations on finding someone to love.

    Re: Do you like Casinos?

    I have worked far too hard for my money in my lifetime and do not throw it away in any casino. Having said that I do love Las Vegas for the architecture, the kitsch, and most of all the food. Its a great place to spend three days and not one minute more. The Red Rocks are also a great place to visit when there. The few times I have been in local casinos I find them to be really sad and ugly places reeking of stale cigarette smoke, sad and desperate people, and just a general feeling of depression.

    As I've said elsewhere, the teens and twenties are the time for being stupid, so long as you can survive that period more or less unscathed, of course. Unfortunately, I can't remember the comedian, but it probably wasn't Adam Corolla as he isn't one of my favorite comedians.

    Yup, that's all I'm saying: sensory input is largely emotional.

    Also, congratulations on finding someone to love.d
    Thanks, man. I'm probably not an easy person to love, so I'm thankful every day.
