    In this week's news from South Florida, large brawl unfolds at the children's restaurant and arcade. Stunning to think that these people are free to reproduce.

    Casinos generate less police reports than Chuck E. Cheese.

    Which is surprising because Chuck E Cheese has turned into gambling indoctrination centers. I'd say 80 percent or better of the machines are devoted to games of chance or nominal skill to win tickets. Pure play for the fun of it arcade games are going the way of the dodo.

    They need those good ol' Whack-a-Mole games to let people get out their aggression:

    I reported one of those Xscape Entertainment places to our provincial liquor and gaming authority.

    Almost every game was some form of game of chance aimed at kids. I am far from prudish but this struck me as completely wrong. They send they would send an inspector but never heard back and the place is still open.

    I think the way they get away with it here is by paying out one or two tickets regardless of how shitty you play. Of course when it takes 25 tickets to win even the crappiest prize imaginable ...

    To think that pinball was considered the gateway to juvenile delinquency when I was a kid...

    Elder DaughterQuant (EDQ) worked at CEC for a couple of years. Lots of ... sad ... stories. Lots of young, split-up parents, battling during the child's birthday. Lots of single moms, scrounging out enough to pay for the party, or being surprised by some fine-print (or not-too-fine-print) fees or charges. Depressing stuff.
