    Re: Tell us about Nevada

    Been to Vegas? Honey, I live in Vegas.

    It's really not that glamorous.

    DMof2- make sure you pack some winter clothes. Contrary to popular belief, it actually does get cold here.

    Fun fact- we're home to the Star Trek Experience.

    Screw eHarmony- I met my soulmate at Star Trek: The Experience.


    Random funny exchange from Star Trek: The Experience:

    BF: "If you take any photos on the attraction, we will shoot you with a phaser."
    Guest: "On stun?"
    BF: "Maybe....."
    Me: "I wouldn't trust him."

    Has some of the fastest growing area in the country (Reno, Vegas suburbs). Reno is about an hour away from Lake Tahoe and has several good antique shops.

    Not exactly.

    Technically, prostitution is not legal anywhere in Nevada--that's not to say it doesn't go on; it's just not legal. In some of the rural counties (many miles away from Reno, Carson City or Las Vegas) you'll find legal brothels that are heavily regulated by the state.

    So, if you want to pay for sex in Nevada and not risk getting busted by cops or picking up a potentially fatal disease, take about an hour drive into the desert.

    Murphy, start saving your money now.

    Re: Tell us about Nevada

    And before you ask . . .

    No, I don't work for a casino.

    No, I don't gamble.

    Well since you saw fit to correct me I feel the need to return the gesture. I live in Reno and the brothels are NOT an hour outside the city but only a few minutes. The same goes for Carson City. AND phrase it how ever you want but it is legalized prostitution. Oh, and my wife works for the biggest resort casino in this area and damn proud of it.

    Oh, you're from that OTHER city in the north.

    No offense intended. And I don't have anything against working in a casino . . . I just get asked that all the time from people who don't live here. They think it's the only business we have.

    Re: Tell us about Nevada

    Woo hoo! I'll be in Vegas this weekend!!!

    Oh, um, Vegas is SO freakin' hot and dry in the summer, it caused my eyes to dry up so badly they hurt to open.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
