The Aces Casino Blog: Part 5 Of Our Brand New Series -- "Three Things We Found On The Internet Today" (But Were Afraid To Say Anything About it)


Here at Aces Casino Entertainment (Ed. Note: You know -- The top orange county casino night party company on the west coast, bar none), we've always looked at the making of the Aces Casino Blog as a work in perpetual motion -- A place to discuss everything from the latest in orange county casino party games, to dumb YouTube vids, to anything and everything under the sun that we feel needs the Aces Casino "light of day" brightly shined upon it.

In other words, our tendency to lean towards our "professional irreverence" mantra plastered upon us by none other than the O. C. Register, when they lauded us as the best casino party company in our industry.  High praise for 127 crazy staff members that found a job they loved, that isn't work.

But, back to the blog.

The Blog staff is always looking on the internet for things that they can forward to the thousands of loyal Aces Casino Blog subscribers (Ed. Note: Ummm, what?), and would consistently find things that they thought that, although it had nothing to do with our company, were interesting, just the same.

Leave it to the Blog staff to accidentally find yet another theme to discuss (exploit?) here. Here's a look at how they think: A couple of years ago, they wanted to be given the week off after coming up with the theme, "Aces Casino College of Casino Game Knowledge."  (Ed. Note: Yeah, right.  Back to work.)  Finally, this crew of frustrated Shakespeare Wanna-Be's were hit with the bolt of lightning - Let's package all these random internet stories, and write about them!

Brilliant.  Well, maybe not BRILLIANT, but it'll pass.

To that end, we dedicate all of our remaining Aces Casino Blog entries for the month of May to the latest creation submitted by our Aces Casino Blog staff -- Part Five of "Three Things That We Found On The Internet This Week / Month / Year!"  Enjoy....

#1 -- First prototype of the Mickey Mouse ears, circa World War I

"M - I - C...." See you real SOON..." (And HEAR ya, too!)

Actually, this photo shows what was called "Enemy Sound Detectors" from World War I.  We detected this lil' ditty from this link.

#2 -- Have you heard about the guy that bought his own hotel, just for the purpose of spying on all the guests as they did whatever they were doing?

Here's the hotel.  Recognize it?  "You're on Candid Camera."

OK... This one HAS to be in the running for "Aces Casino Blog Story Of The Year."  If you hadn't heard about this yet, well, here's the skinny.  Absolutely true story, from the "truth is stranger than fiction" files....

With the assistance of his wife, he cut rectangular holes measuring six by fourteen inches in the ceilings of more than a dozen rooms. Then he covered the openings with louvred aluminum screens that looked like ventilation grilles but were actually observation vents that allowed him, while he knelt in the attic, to see his guests in the rooms below. He watched them for decades, while keeping an exhaustive written record of what he saw and heard. Never once, during all those years, was he caught. 

The guy's retort to this situation, when this became public?

“I did this purely out of my unlimited curiosity about people and not as just a deranged voyeur.”

Yeah, right.  "Creepy, 101."  Here's the link via The New Yorker.

#3 -- "The Church of the Perpetual Munchies"

All we need is Sean Penn and Mr. Hand, and we've got a bridge game.

OK, a little back-story -- Meet California-based Sister Kate and Sister Darcy, who grow, cultivate and harvest medicinal marijuana. The nuns label their medicinal remedies with their moniker The Sisters of the Valley. (Ed. Note: I like our name for them better, but I know where "In-N-Out" should build their next franchise location.)  The Sisters prepare their remedies observing the cycles of the moon and “in a spiritual environment.” They (Incredibly) have a Facebook page here.

Here's the link, courtesy of photographers Shaughn Crawford and John DuBois.  And, in a related story, the Pizza Hut down the street estimates that their annual revenue hits at around 20 million dollars.  (Ed. Note: OK, well, THAT'S not true... At least we don't THINK so.)     

 That's all for now... See you next time with more "Finds!"
