On the other hand, the minister of defence of Russia is very hard-working and doesn't shun any responsibility. Just now he officialy announced propaganda brigades in the army. Busy man.

He did not give a congratulatory speech on the day of the Soviet Army
Putin refused the post of chief of the Soviet Army

True. Not a lot though, just a few.

You are going to buy the Nintendo Switch on release day.

I don't think I've ever been in a casino. Was going to go in one when I was on holiday once, but was turned away at the door for not being dressed appropriately. A pair of jeans and a t-shirt was obviously below their required standards.   :whistle:

When I was 18 (or possibly 19?) I went to a casino with my friends, 'cause, well, you know -- you have to try it out and it's finally legal. I won some €40-ish, but my all of my friends' losses more than made up for that.

Anyway, I see no problem with it in principle. If you say you've got X amount of money that you'll spend on a night out then it's no different than renting a pool table or going swimming or whatever. I consider it overly expensive in fun vs money spent and I haven't gone since.

The stringently regulated (to prevent addiction and whitewashing) Holland Casino nevertheless makes a profit so I don't think we have to worry about the poor casinos. :P
