Is his name Tom Cullen? Laws yes! M-O-O-N spells casino...

Playing roulette on the moon could get interesting, or craps for that matter. Anything involving gravity would be interesting.
2002-11-25 09:44:01 AM  
And then again, I read the headline backwards, so never mind.

Additional features: Zero gravity casino to help money fall out of your pockets more quickly.

(M-O-O-N spells The Stand)

Obscure? Not even close.

Gotcher moon right here...
2002-11-25 01:40:47 PM  
They'll call it "Capricorn One" I'd imagine.

:::ducks before government MIBs take notice!:::
2002-11-25 01:41:02 PM  
I thought it said giant "poon" casino
2002-11-25 01:41:48 PM  
Not obscure. Only book of his I enjoyed. (only gave a couple others a chance though)
2002-11-25 01:42:29 PM  
heck, they told bob stupak that he'd never get the stratosphere built either. it's too bad that steve wynn destroyed vegas by turning it into just another tourist trap. vegas used to be fun when it had some personality, now it's just one mega resort after another. ugh.
2002-11-25 01:42:53 PM  
Mmmmmmm! Moon Maidens...
2002-11-25 01:44:56 PM  
Damn, throwing craps would be a b*tch. It'd take forever for the dice to stop bouncing. And got forbid you missed the back wall....
2002-11-25 01:45:57 PM  
Not on my 20 dollar plot of moon-land they won't!
2002-11-25 01:46:24 PM  
I hope he builds it. Hopefully it would be the straw that breaks the boring-building-camel's back and lets us purchase the new we're-in-the-2000's-dumbasses,-so-lets-act-like-it-and-rebuild-everything-so-i t-looks-like-we-live-in-a-good-sci-fi-movie-camel.
2002-11-25 01:47:08 PM  
Oh we're the whalers of the moon...
2002-11-25 01:51:03 PM  
Did ANYONE read the article? Seems 50% of you think they're actually building it ON the moon. Which as we all know would quickly be over-run by rats trying to eat it's cheesy goodness.
2002-11-25 01:52:03 PM  
Because we all know, there's good skiing on the moon.
2002-11-25 01:56:52 PM  
That is so..... cool. And it'd fit in so well next to the Luxor. Moon towering over the pyramid :)
2002-11-25 01:58:30 PM  
this will not happen. At least not under Michael Henderson's guidance. he is a loser and a crook.

look into his lasik-vision dealings...
2002-11-25 01:58:35 PM  
Fine, just don't do something stupid like build a fishing lake inside the moon.

The 2K2 release of H.G. Wells TIME MACHINE: Moon chucks colide with earth. Moon has less mass because some jerk felt like making a fishing lake inside the moon's core. (If Ted Dance saw this movie, he would probably beat the crap out of Well's great-grandson who made the moive. Never the less, it's still a keeper.) Less moon=Less control on the tides and faultlines. Therefore, causing DOOM!
2002-11-25 02:00:23 PM  
I'd rather build a Vegas-styled casino on the moon.
2002-11-25 02:00:46 PM  
Cirque DE LA Lune, and not Cirque DU Lune

If you are going to spend 5 Billions .... at least spend a few bucks on a French-English dictionary.

2002-11-25 02:03:07 PM  
Farkers should unite and make a boobie casino. Two domes with a revolving restaraunt on top of each one.
2002-11-25 02:03:34 PM  
As long as he includes 5 dollar moon blackjack tables, I'm there.
2002-11-25 02:05:33 PM  
With Blackjack...and prostitutues?

2002-11-25 02:05:55 PM  
Looks like it would be a cool place to visit.
2002-11-25 02:16:39 PM  
Yeah, I think thats actually the only Steven King reference I would ever get, my favorite book of his, and yes basically the only one i enjoyed also. I don't read many novels though, they usually take too much time away from computer games and masturbation. M-O-O-N that spells masturbation! I thought of it myself!

Why is the thought of almost everyone being dead of plague and a huge empty world left over so appealing to me?
2002-11-25 02:19:24 PM  
Already done once....

2002-11-25 02:19:39 PM  
Actually it is "Cirque du Lune"
2002-11-25 02:19:44 PM  
In the moon casino, my craps losses would be 1/6 what they are here on earth.
2002-11-25 02:25:56 PM  
good for him. it's important to have dreams. and what the heck, it keeps him off the streets.
2002-11-25 02:34:39 PM  
2002-11-25 02:36:25 PM  
PS: it said Circus of the moon=Cirque de la lune. Because we all know babelfish is such a great farking translator.
2002-11-25 02:42:53 PM  
cirque du moron
2002-11-25 02:47:24 PM  
Free Dr. Pepper t-shirt to the first 1,000 moon gamblers!

Now there's a sentence I could not have predicted I would write today.
2002-11-25 02:49:35 PM  
I ate at a moon-themed restaurant once. The food was great, but the place had no atmosphere.
2002-11-25 02:56:54 PM  
BillDarryl Are you, by any chance, the Unknown Comic?
2002-11-25 02:59:18 PM  
I'd go for it. Looks cool.

ChrisPC I have no idea who you are...that that was brilliant!. I didn't see your post until after I posted mine.
2002-11-25 03:12:57 PM  
Ah, I love casinos. People treat you great, the rooms are really nice, and it's the best food in the world.

With the glaring exception of the Cherokee Nation casino nearby in Western North Carolina.

Worst. Casino. Ever.
2002-11-25 03:13:20 PM  
nother fine Harriman Enterprises venture.

Or, he could build a giant Vegas casino on the moon! Buy an acre, send up some slot machines, there you go. Plus, all the gullible people who buy a piece of the moon will be dumb enough to go to your casino and waste their money!

They can build it if they like, and maybe I'll get a room there, but I'm not going to gamble there. Like every other place on the damn strip, no $5 tables on weekends and hardly any during the week either. Slots that steal everything fed into them. Sure they have professional dealers but I will take my gambling dough to the Casino Royale and other such low-rent places. $1 craps and 100x odds.
