That's what she told me MacGuffin, she has passed away now, but at the time she said she was a serious gambler and easily distracted.

It brings back memories.  

I do have to give my father credit for teaching me how to count cards at a young age, and also showing me how to stack the deck, deal from the bottom and all that.

One time when I was about 14 he took me to Las Vegas and just left me some money after we checked into the hotel and said go have fun.  He had five or six decks of cards shuffled together and practiced counting with me again.

Then he disappeared for a week or two, but that wasn't unusual for him.  So I was there alone in Sin City, and since I looked older no one stopped me from playing in the casino and doing other things.  

Here again, I just thought this was basically a "normal" childhood, at least for me.

Lunch is over, time to get back to work now.

Cheers.

For the moment, I am relieved.
For the past couple of hours the posting in this thread has been so frequent that every time I went to write a post, someone had said it already, or my content had become dated!
Phew!

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.
This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan

Sorry to hear about your dad's poor judgement in parenting skills MacGuffin. :(  Sometimes though, these lessons are the best ones and if the child is capable of dealing with them.

Regarding my gambling friend in Phoenix, she was a 'believer' actually, very interested and curious about the unknown.  She was quite upset she missed the events that were unfolding outside the casino's walls.

I think it was all just another test and part of his "education program", which I have mentioned on here before.  It was basically like he thought that "it's time to make a man out of you", at least according to his notions of these things, but he always had a plan or a strategy for everything he did.

By the way, did anyone or has anyone watched the video I posted at the very start of this thread?  Is there anymore witnesses from the Phoenix 1997 sighting who are willing to share the details of what they saw?

I'm also still waiting and looking forward to hearing back from AZDude1973.  I am eager to hear more specifics about his personal eye-witness account from that night.

I'm not recollecting this event, can you provide a link to the video you've mentioned and so I can see if I have or not?

Ok, yes, I do believe I've seen that footage before, I just didn't know it by its event name.  Very compelling for sure and it seems as though the object is either rotating and the sun is reflecting off different angles of its metallic frame, or it's got a light on it that is blinking back and forth horizontally.

Yes they let themselves down terribly.  Totally ignoring the clip and what the guy actually said.  he has the footage to prove it.  What more is needed?

I always find it funny when people take your tongue in cheek comments seriously.  I sometimes wonder if I've taken some of your comments too seriously as well actually.  Not these ones of course, but maybe some of your others?  Hard to say.  Very hard to tell sometimes when you're joking and when you aren't.

Experimental holograms will always be one of my favorite responses. I think bee said it when she came to that conclusion after seeing a 30 second clip of lights off of YouTube. You can't beat that.

If he is deliberately trying to wind people up he only has himself to blame if people misunderstand him.  Simple really.  best to be sincere on a forum IMHO.
