Scattered thoughts from Vegas:

  1. Crowds of people unaware they are in a crowd of people. Hundreds walking in each direction, but yet people will stop on a dime as if they are the only one walking the boulevard - causing a people-jam behind. This is owed to Vegas' ability to make each person feel as if they are in their own world, by catering to each inidividual's vice (gambling, food, shows, clubs, shopping, etc...) The result is a populace of complete introverts, blissfully unaware of the fact they are one in a mass of millions. Also - Casinos have mastered the art of making each patron feel as if they are a high-roller. Not that there is anything wrong with any of this.
  2. The $300 default ATM withdrawal limit was created by God at the beginning of time.
  3. For the first time in five years there are lots of empty tables. Are they over-building? Or are people less interested in gambling as Indian casinos sprawl?
  4. Breakfast no longer served all day.
  5. The "cash advance from credit card without PIN" created by Devil recently.
  6. The Deuce rocks.
  7. Business idea - create casino around gaming. Think XBOX Live for real money and comps, with the atmosphere of Jillians or Dave & Busters.

i believe the $300 limit to safeguard the account holder. if the card is stolen, you won't be out more than $300. :) see i learned something in my industry.
