Bring us all back a huge win from the slot machines LOL

I remember walking through and seeing Harleys and Cars as top prize jackpots for one arm bandits! It is that crazy!

Maybe one day we can have a TIG outing to Vegas haha

Have a good time Shawn.

I've only ever been to Vegas with the missus.

If I went with the lads I'd end up killing myself.

I Love Vegas soooooo much. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil tongue

Have a great time Shawn

I finally got back from the trip today. The main purpose of the trip was to go to the Consumer Electronics Show and of course to have some fun on the side. There were a lot of really cool things to see, with the big push being 3D HDTVs. I really think these will come to market when Avatar gets a home video release. I uploaded a bunch of pictures from the show if anyone is interested in seeing them. http://s934.photobucket.com/albums/ad189/shawn_k_tig/ces2010/

There actually was something Star Wars related at the show. This guy had these RC X-Wings for sale and demoing that he called RCX4 Star Stryker. They looked like a lot of fun, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was hit with a lawsuit by using the x-wing likeness and colors. Here is his website and a few of the pictures I took.









I did not fare so well at the Casinos. I at most won $15. My nephew though did win $200 on the last day. Here are the Star Wars games. Smile

LOL yes it is Lady Gaga. My wife really wanted to see her, so we had to stand there for almost 3 hours. It was pretty ridiculous. She has some kind of a deal with Polaroid, so she was at their booth first and then after that she went over to the Monster Booth where they talked about her line of ear buds. I was surprised when Dr. Dre was there too. I didn't get close enough to check out her crotch, so it is still up in the air. lol!

Do you wear glasses Chaz? (reading/pc ones I mean)

If so it might be that without your prescription lenses your eyes are working overtime with the 3D visuals.

I used to run an optical laboratory in England and most types of glasses can be made to incorporate your own prescription in the lenses (Shooting glasses/safety glasses etc)

If you don't wear glasses perhaps get your eyes tested to see if you do have a prescription?

Thats not a bad idea mate, I think I am due a trip to the opticians. I think I am the only person in my family that don't wear 'em. Makes sense :I am stupid:

LOL - Now I want to see you wearing these when you get them haha

Let me know how you get on at the opticians though mate, I would bet on you needing glasses, even a small prescription can give you problems, my wife only has -0.50 - 0.25 and 0.00 -0.25 and if she isn't wearing her glasses she can get headaches.

I remember once someone coming in for their first ever eye test in 30 years or so and they needed -6.00 lenses, the optician at the time couldn't work out how the hell they had even got to the shop without falling in front of a car Shocked

That is pretty interesting about the headaches. I was just talking to a coworker who said that he got headaches with the 3D glasses and have heard that complaint before. Maybe they should put some kind of label that states "If headaches occur get your eyes checked" LOL

lol!

It is stupid of me not to get them checked, to be honest I gave up goin' to the opticians because everytime I went they told me everything was top notch and fully functional! .....it has been a while though thinking

I should take a bit more care of my eyes, I even cut one of them when I was a kid and everyone was astonished at the condition of my vision when it healed. I think I got a little too complacent Laughing

My eyes start to water and I have to strain to get the '3D' image, I thought it was just me as everyone else seems fine when i go to watch it with other people

Just think, if everyone on ebay got their eyes tested a C9 might really be a C9 LOL

Seriously, any headaches, eye strain, problems with vision is best to get checked, it might seem like fuss over nothing but once you get those glasses on your face and the problems go away you suddenly realise you should have gone sooner! Very Happy

(I swear I am not on commission for this ) Laughing
