The casino is full of desperation and addiction.......so have people killed themselves there? absolutely! Almost daily? I don't think so - but i don't know what the stats are.
    DH said there were maybe 6 deaths in the 2 years he worked there, all of them elderly and natural causes.
    He never heard of a suicide, (and they DO talk about these things at the debriefing between shifts, so he would have heard if there had been any)

Pretty groovy I reckon!
    Yep, staff resturant and gym. you get meal passes depending on the shift length, so DH would arrive and grab a sandwich, then save his meal pass for knock off and not have dinner at home. saved loads of money! And your uniform is laundered (usually haha, DH had to borrow one a few times when he only had 8 hours between shifts)

    Yep crown was awesome to work at, I used to love swiping my card and the big conveyer belt behind the wall would spin around then the little door would open and a suit bag would pop out with you freshly laundered customed fitted uniform. End of shift dump it in a big basket.

    My big brother killed himself by jumping in front of a train off an overpass, My parents kept it all silent, wasnt reported anywhere they got the choice.
    Its also why train drivers have curtains they can pull down quickly.

Loved to know where those two guys are now. Probably working for the government.

    HA! or dead.


    My bestie is right into the conspiricy theories and while im not a sheep and listen to EVERYTHING the media has to offer, i refuse to go through life believing that the world is out to get me, i think its definatly possible that 9/11 was planned, and the theories seem plausible, but i couldnt ever fight to uncover it, i just dont want to know.
    The Denver airport is a good one to read, all about NWO and stuff i think i seen it from soemone on here and it was soooooo interesting. Not sure if i beleive it though because they'res always explanations

    I personally dont know many theories. Except that when someone tells u that their hair extensions are Indian/Rusiian etc that its BS, it all get treated and come out of the factory the same. Never pay more for different hair nationalities lol

    My big brother killed himself by train too. In fact I have been close to three people who have suicided by train. None were reported in media.

    I'm loving this convo, and trying to think of something fascinating to add but I can't.

    Hugs to you both.
    When I was younger (15) I was there when a man layed down in front of a train. wouldnt wish it upon anyone to see what I saw.
    It also wasnt in the media.

    This morning I heard an interesting 'story' about how often 'people' break out of goal and how many of them are actually caught.

    I tried to google statistics but every site that came up was a .gov or American.

    Got me thinking about that serial killer who killed all those backpackers (I can't remember his name and can't google because I'm on my phone) and last I heard he was being kept in maximum security prison in golburn. I'm wondering if he's still Alive.

    On the train subject I saw a guy 'touch' a freight train flying past the train station a few years ago.

    ***TMI WARNING***

    It literally ripped his hand off (it was partially still hanging on) He was high on drugs and refused ambulance assistance & ran off. I can't see how he could have survived the night even if he had had medical treatment. Again, it was never reported on the media,

    Sorry I don't understand what you mean. Are you referring to Ivan Milat? What 'story'?
