MESSAGE: Have you ever dealt Baccarat while crabs scuttled around the gaming floor? If so I would love to hear from you. Xmas Is - not just a detention center.
E-MAIL: robbercrab@hotmail.com

I asked for a little more info on the above message - Adam replied
"Christmas Island had a junket Baccarat casino. It also had a population of 120 million land crabs. Each year they would migrate to the shore to spawn. Nothing stopped them, they went over, under, in, out or through anything to  get where thay were going. This included the casino, which had been  thoughtfully located in the middle of one of their migration corridors."
Nice one.
