We all have to start somewhere.

I'll never forget what the BJ dealer said to me back in the late 60's...it was at the Thunderbird, I believe...or maybe the Sahara.

I was a senior in college...had recently turned 21.

I said, "Go easy on me, I'm a struggling student".

He said, "Then you shouldn't be here".

I still think he was wrong.

OBlonde,

Gosh, isn't this just the way of TA forum posts? You get involved in people's "stories." And you try to help (or just read empathetically if you have nothing to offer).

And then the OPs you've come to care about -- anonymously as it is -- well, they suddenly disappear and you never know The Rest of The Story.

I don't remember "Broke College Student," but I bet I could find you innumerable similar posts on a variety of TA forums.

Some of us really buy into the community aspect of the TA forums; we keep coming back with questions and reports and reviews. Some are "Quick Hitters" (pun on popular slots intended) who take but never give. And since I *don't* know anything about BCS, maybe it's unfair to label him as such.

But (any TA Gods reading this?) sometimes I wonder why so many of you are SO generous with your time & experience and so willing to keep answering the same questions over and over!

For me, TA forums (and reviews) have made SO many of our trips SO much better than if this resource weren't here! So thanks to all of you who post so unselfishly (and sometimes snarkily, I esp. love those!).

Ahh, geez, really nothing to do with Broke College Student, but I guess it's been on my mind for a while and this topic just seemed to bring it all out.

On topic: going to Las Vegas end of September, second trip for me, first for my sister. We are SO excited and I have a 25-page document of "cut and paste" advice from this forum. Can NOT thank you all enough!!
