It met its designed end Nov 26 last year, 2:06 am.
That page says "1996".
Where do you get your time-warps from?
I did too much LDS in the 60's . . . since I live basically down the street from the Sands I should have really remembered it couldn't have been last year, but I still live in the 90's anyway.
You live in Vegas?
I hope you aren't drinking the tap water, 'cause that would explain it, if you were.
We have tap water? That thing we use for model rocket fuel is water? Sheesh. I think the time warp is just cause by breathing too much dust from the implosions, and I live two miles from the Strip . . . first we got to glow in the dark from the atmospheric nukes (used to watch them from the church roof) and then we had to drink industrially processed water, and then came the implosions. I don't drink water. I drin Bishop's finger ale and Aguardiente.
Everyone I've ever met who actually came from Las Vegas has been a complete loon. Is this accurate, or just a horribly unfair sweeping generalization based on far too small a sampling?
Yes, this place is full of loonies. As the old ad for a stand-up comedy lounge used to say : 'cause in a town full of nude ice skaters needs a few laughs.' Aside from the tourist aspect we are in a way a part of the social sewer system of the republic, where every one used to come to hide out, change identity, disappear from the charted part of civilizatio, a distan serai in the desert. We have, sadly, lost part of that aspect, but kept the nude ice skaters. In exchange we get good cheap liquor store open 24/7. And nude ice skaters have their own allure.
