    Also, when I try to gamble I can lose 100 dollars in 20 minutes, which takes the fun out of it quickly.

    Also nothing gets my allergic rhinitis going like cigarette smoke.

    I get the idea there is some secret to A) winning money gambling and B) enjoying the lifestyle.

    My ex-roommate retired from medicine a few years ago and divides his time between Scottsdale and Vegas. He is what you might call a semi-pro gambler. We went out to eat at the Bellagio—?Spago, not sure if that’s right—and the bill was rather hefty. When the check came, he wanted to pick it up, but I foolishly insisted we split it. After we left he said, “Well, I won $20K yesterday at poker, and I would have been glad to pick up the tab.”
    Doc, we're here because we can't afford California. I have to remind myself that's all it is. If you got priced out leave it at that and get on with your life.
    Not everyone got priced out but a lot of people did.
    I'm still getting used to this place.

    It's not about gambling anymore. New Vegas is a party place for young people that like shitty music.
    There's a lot of them.

    I hate to keep harping on this;



    I just signed a year lease but I'll eat a chunk of it if I have to. The southwest is in trouble. It's drying up.
