    i am leery of lid's facetiousness but in case not my question would be: not even 1 dollar?

    i was in a couple of tv commercials for my company and was paid one dollar each & had to sign a paper that basically said i would not come after them for any more money...my old man too, rest his soul, was in a 1978 movie (Ice Castles) in which he appeared as an extra in a crowd...he too was paid $1 and presumably had to sign off on it also...

    as far as "credits" are concerned these are generally not given unless you have a speaking part and even then, if it is small, mostly in the "small print" where no one will notice unless the party has advised his friends to look for his name...lol

    just curious.

    Completely true story. More context... I was in AC to meet the Captain and teach him some of my tosses. I think it was in the Spring and Barney and I just arrived on a bus from Long Island and for some reason it was unexpectedly cold and windy. We froze our asses off on the boardwalk and as we passed the front of a casino (I think it was the Resorts) I see a giant camera at a lower boardwalk window level. As we pass by the camera I stick up my customary finger and head down the boardwalk to meet the captain.

    A couple of years later Barney sees the video on MTV and we both remember the incident so it wasn't a drug induced flashback and Barney has been after me ever since to get some residuals since he sees himself as a music video star. I told him I think people filmed in a public place without their consent probably have no standing.

    Was the dumb ass able to learn anything LID?

    If Scoblete is right about him being the father of DI, and if his skills were learned from another, I would think that some royalties are in order.

    Where does the Arm fit into the picture? (please no more pics of her).

    Yes I taught the Captain my off-axis toss...

    I never thought about royalties, will have to check with my lawyer...

    The Arm has retired from DI and is currently in Washington making a fool of herself...

    The only way I have ever bet craps is in the field. Even won a couple of these bets, but alas, fewer than 16/36 of them.

    I am sorry Koko but after further reflection, I am going to show probably the only picture of the great Arm in existence today. This is a repeat photo that probably a lot of the new forum members have not seen. For the faint of heart please do not look at the picture. I hope Jacob does not give me the boot so I will add a warning:

    Only true craps cognoscenti know the story behind that photo. Rumor has it The Arm got ahold of the original notes The Captain's teacher gave to him. Those notes included a recommended diet that was not to The Captain's liking -- he was already taking vast quantities of supplements -- so he skipped that part. The Arm's tastes in matters of nutrition was not as refined, however, and she eventually achieved the physique captured by the camera above. Unfortunately this had a negative influence on her dice influencing, so she took up tossing craps tables instead.
