No way. I'm not buying it. Just prior to and just after Natalee's disappearance, Joran spent at least 15-30 hours in casinos in a six day period. That's a lot. And you're not going to convince me that he was winning all the time.

And you can't "easily" double your winnings. You can more easily lose -- A LOT. Casinos are set up for the house to win most of the time. That's what keeps them in business. Oh no. Wait. EXCEPT when it came to Joran. That's right. Then it was set up for HIM to win because he's da man.

Please. Not buying it.


While Joran obviously frequented the casinos regularly, I doubt he was a high roller.

He seems genuinely ecstatic in one picture where he's holding up a mere $70.

Most likely, hanging around in the casino is an easy source of free drinks for these island kids.

I really wanted to take a picture of Holiday Inn pool area, as well as the beach there, but I'm not kidding when there was not one freaking parking spot.

For Red, it's very hard to take pictures of the Cruiship area, as the whole area is fenced

WOW.....thanks for the phots.....I've not been to the island in years....it's really grown.

Quote from: "absolut"
The simple theory revisited. oddly the new releases from custody changes this at all.

Boy meets girl, girl meets boy (not to mince words)
Girl with friends sees boy again, friends leave
Girl leaves with boy and his friends (no assumtions)
Girl and boy get in vechicle with his friends (no idea what she knew)
Vechicle drives off into the night.
Boy alive and well, as well as 2 others in the car (remember no statements are any good.)

Girl is missing and no one can tell us, how, why, when where. You have one thing left guilt.

Without statements for or against where does the guilt logically fall.


IMVHO absolut....with this information we can not say where the "guilt" lies.  Too many possibilities....swimming in ocean - drowned, kidnapped - still alive, kidnapped - murdered, accidental death (boy).....

So I don't think the "guilt logically falls" on anyone given this set of facts.  Evidence is needed.

You know what...I was trying to be respectful of you and put it to you lightly...but I think you just like to argue.  I'm done for the night...I can't deal with people that can't accept other's opinions.  And like I said before...you know nothing about poker.

and I thought Iquitos was just being paranoid! All the student spring break/grad trip travel sites that were very informative about Aruba a week ago, suddenly do not send trips there!

So... from the travel info site of "Aruba Rentals" (Luxury Condo rentals) at http://www.arubarentals.com/vacationtips.htm

on their "Travel Tips for Aruba" info page:

Legal                Drinking/Gambling Age
             
The legal age for both drinking and gambling is 18 years of age, however, this law is not widely enforced.

hmm ...   not widely enforced ...   why judge van der sloot should be ashamed of hisself

Scott - I find your latest comment really offensive.


while I wouldn't have said it the way Scott did, I just asked my 19 yr nephew a couple of minutes ago, if he would have called and or texted someone to say he was walking and he was home. The person who more normally would be calling or texting would be the person already at their home to see if their buddy got home ok. So that is the opinion of a teenage boy, something is wrong with this part of joran's story as usual.


what if deepak said to Joran when dropping him off.."hey bud, text message me when you get home, so I know you made it"


That's my question.  Why would any guy friend have reasonable concern to know that another guy friend made it home safely, in, of all places, Aruba (the nicer section of the island, at that)?

Obviously, there could well be other reasons explaining the intent of a text message or call.  I made the comment I did because it was suggested that Joran was contacting Deepak for the purpose of putting his mind at ease that he got home OK.


I think you are reading into this text message too much. I've got 2 boys. I don't find this alarming in anyway and could I could find my boys following the same sort of thing. NO biggy to me Scott.  Rolling Eyes

Thank you! I actually put the 2 pics of the beach on my slide show screen saver. Those were very insightful. Dash said the Marriott looked close and was the distance was easily walked. I bet if Natalee did ride to the lighthouse on that dark road, she had to be scared to death. Note I said if.

it would have been mentioned by now. We know where Steve Croes works, we know where Deepak works. The press would have discovered where he worked if he had a job.

I am good, but don't play much.

Just at a family game christmas--and we had a five dollar buy in--I had 63 dollars in about 90 minutes.  We were playing Texas Holdem.

Poker is a little different than some of the other games and if you know "when to hold and when to fold" it really is not hard to slowly make money.

I am a poker play, and believe me, you can get a bankroll built up if you are good

As a matter of fact, it does. And that he is upset about the something.

It sounds more like the way one teen would respond to another, as opposed to an older person.

I can't claim to know how Joran normally interacted with adults, maybe that is how he is accustomed to address the parents of his friends and acquaintances, or it could be an indication that emotional stress caused him to forego courtesy.

Didn't go to Noord, there was a political rally, and the traffic was stuck.

For some reasons all political parties decided to have an event today.
