I know everyone tends to complain about the smoke from the casino on the Epic. I have a bit of a different take on this as to what bothered me. I totally expect to smell smoke when I am in a casino, but what caught me off guard and made my stomach turn was the smell of FOOD in the casino from the Taste MDR below. Anybody else experience this?

Yeah and it’s even more stomach churning when you happen to sit next to someone wearing Eau-de-stink perfume.

Maybe it was just impeccable timing on my part to catch the whiff of food, but upon smelling it up there my literal response to my husband was, “Ugh!! I really hate it when the smell of food interferes with the smell of smoke in the casino...” We didn’t stick around to play any machines in that area that day...

It was a new gambit by the casino hosts. Recent science indicates that male risk-taking behavior increases drastically when exposed to the aroma of bacon. Female risk-taking increases exponentially when given access to the smell of dark chocolate. They first experimented with tofu burgers and brussels sprouts and almost went bankrupt.

Just like with cows. Wait till he's asleep on his feet, then run up and give him a quick shove.

not to hijack this thread, but you do know that you cannot tip a cow? urban legend.. Sometimes I have trouble detecting tongue in cheek, but I have had some heated discussions about this topic.
