I'm not really much of a gambler, so Vegas isn't my 1st destination of choice. Still, there's some interesting history in it that's hard to deny. Sort of a funhouse mirror reflection of our culture over the decades.
In a recent visit, I made sport of asking oddball questions of Cab drivers. The more I could tell they were shafting me on the faire (by starting at the wrong base faire or taking the wrong roads), the more oddball my questions.
Some of those questions I asked...
"From here, where can I find myself in an alley or corridor where someone has been beaten and discarded for being overly fortunate at the tables?"
and of course,
"How many people have had sex in the back of your car?"
Which had the best answer, his answer was:
"Today or this week?"
