    15 years ago at the tables at the Bellagio... a little over $52K out of pocket. but hey, they comped my room, meals, and flew me back to Houston and offered to fly me back on a private plane any time i like b/c i was the major sucker that weekend. so i guess really just $50K? but that is the most in the shortest increment in time (one weekend vegas trip). if you look in the long run of all of my trips, i'm one of the lucky ones who actually has left Vegas in the plus column, so I don't feel too bad anymore. but that monday when i left, i remember just sitting on the plane straight pissy.

    I was trading options on some chinese gaming companies. Turned $5k into $20k in a couple months, then subsequently lost it all.

    I bought a 2005 nissan altima that I thought was decent from craigslist and then when I got home the engine light turned on. Took it next day to the repair place and they wanted to sit down in a private room to discuss the $3500 worth of repairs it needed. Sold that **** back to craigslist in 2 months "like new".

    The craps table is my kryptonite. I'm really good, and I'm also not really good because I don't have a "stop switch".
