Cool, take their money and then kill 'em in the streets. Now that's downright American, dammit!

Why is it that the XML feed has been updated, yet the front page hasn't? Has it always been this way?
2001-09-01 12:09:09 AM  
I live in Las Vegas and I take great offense at that headline that suggests we want this ride to kill people.

We prefer to kill our tourists by shooting them (and then taking their money), running them over with a car (and then taking their money), or inducing alcohol poisoning via truckloads of free alcohol beverages (and then... ahh, you know).

Kenh: Whose XML feed?

Also, Big-Shot is an amusement ride? I thought it were a johnny holmes nickname.

The only thing prevalent in Las Vegas...

Thank you

It's gonna be called the 'Money-Shaker-Outer-Of-Their-Pocket-Rocket Sled. They didn't mention the huge collector net underneath the whole thing. Very smart.
2001-09-01 01:10:47 AM  
Actually, I'd think that if anything, this thing would keep your money in your pockets nicely.
2001-09-01 01:13:22 AM  
Yeah I guess your right. Only thing that would come out of their pants would be poo-poo. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee oops.

At least it provides for more padding on the seat...

Hey, Epsilon...don't brag about your dopey Sin City hometown!

I was just there two weeks ago with two of my bros. You clowns have built a ridiculous circus in the middle of Nowhere, USA.

Every bastard in Vegas has his palm extended for a tip that is usually undeserved. Punks handling baggage. Busboys. Doormen. Drink servers. Restroom attendants. Hey, the REAL upper crust! Pat yourself on the back, dude! You live in a city of subservient, uneducated, ignorant bootlickers!

As I understand it, prostituion is legal in Nevada...but not in Las Vegas. Tell that to the bozos you drink with. You all act like greedy whores!

Las Vegas is worse than No Work City. Everybody is pullin' a scam! Shame on ya, dude! Don't defend an intentional hustle!

Some of us has a noodle or two in his noggin. You ain't got Jack crap!

Las Vegas is for losers...and I'm guessing that's why you're living there.

Please don't have children.

Go out and bus tables, doofus!
2001-09-01 01:42:23 AM  
WOW.. you can gamble, get hookers and now a roller coaster... what more could a family want?
2001-09-01 01:42:34 AM  
Just a guess here.... but Im thinking Groucho didnt read the whole post.

And Im also guessing he lost his life savings in Vegas.

I rode the ride called 'Big Shot'.

It was one of the scariest farking things I've ever experienced.

Okay, imagine the space needle. The one in Seattle.

Imagine being strapped on to the OUTSIDE of the antannae on the top of it.

Not only does the ride shoot you to the top of the damn needle at 45 mph, and drop bounces back up again, drops, bounce, drop, etc...

They take a picture of you at the top of the needle, just before you fall back to the top of the building. It's fun to see the car keys and wallets in suspended animation, and I swear I can see little robotic arms poised to catch the booty.

I want my glasses back, dammit.

Sorry, Mrs. Max Load, but I hauled in enough dough in Vegas to bankroll my trip there.

But *your* words "Im" and "didnt" require an apostophe. Enroll in community college, kiddo. Or go get your GED.

You need help, child! I don't want you lookin' like a fool!

Groucho2: I feel like I'm watching the Rahman/Lewis "fight" on ESPN. *gives you Bruce Banner pill*
2001-09-01 02:18:08 AM  
Well, from what I've heard, the Stratosphere is a pretty crappy hotel, by Las Vegas standards, so I guess the rides are all the have going for them.
2001-09-01 02:22:41 AM  
I thought it was "Viva Las Vegas", not "Muere Las Vegas."
2001-09-01 02:24:10 AM  
ah yes, the true sign of intelligence and maturity, pointing out spelling mistakes in someone's post. "Some of us has a noodle or two in his noggin." there, a grammatical error. that means anything and everything you say is BS, because you made a grammatical error.

Quote from Groucho2: "Hey, Epsilon...don't brag about your dopey Sin City hometown!"

Hey, I just live here. I'm not sure how you concluded that I was bragging in my earlier post. Did you read it?

If it makes you feel better, you can badmouth Vegas all you want. I won't get mad. :-)
2001-09-01 02:58:52 AM  
Groucho2, he be under stands all damm it you HOMOFAG0RTS~~!!!!11111 He no da sc0r3!!111

So they say it's going to be the tallest building west of the Mississippi? Even taller than Columbia Seafirst Center??? I really doubt they could build that, I'm sure they have a cap on that.
2001-09-01 05:48:43 AM  
how are they gonna manage to skim off the top here?

good job Skallas, i missed that.

*pats Skallas on back*
2001-09-01 11:28:17 AM  
The only reason to go to the Stratosphere is to try the rides before going Downtown. Old school Vegas, baby, where the real gambling takes place (excecpt for poker..don't even bother.)

I'm David Stanfill and I was lucky enough not to recieve a v-d on my p-p by a Las Vegas escort.
I'm David Stanfill and I'm the GM at Rite Aid on Fairfax and Sunset in Hollywood.
I'm a serious business man!

How many G's do you suppose that thing would pull?
2001-09-01 01:39:57 PM  
can we PLEASE stop with the grading of other's posts? makes you look like 5 years old. who cares if things are spelled right or not..... it is farking "NG"-type post not a damn research paper.

get over yourselves......

(this is not towards anyone in particular, but I'm sure some will take it as such)
2001-09-01 02:39:16 PM  
What Augie said. Most of us are either too wired or too fried to sweat all the pukntooashun and spelling. Give us a break Miss Crabapple. We're not in class. This is a par-tee, nee-gah!!!!!

Kgf likes to lick my nuts.
2001-09-01 03:15:15 PM  
'...across Las Vegas Boulevard at a force of four G's.'

Transactoid: My guess would be about four.

Gasmasher: Refer to Bigpeeler's post :)
2001-09-01 05:08:28 PM  
Maybe Groucho should have taken advantage of the prostitutes while in Vegas. From the anger in those posts it sounds like he needs to get laid.
2001-09-01 05:09:17 PM  
Good nite Mrs. Feffercorn or Fefferbean, whatever your name is..........................

Just To Remind People What a GED is in Groucho2's Post, Think "Good Enough Diploma".
2001-09-01 08:46:43 PM  
I dunno...a ride like that would be just like Superman the Escape at Six Flags; boring, repetitive, monotonous, and short...ya know, despite the height of the attraction.
2001-09-02 06:22:27 PM  
4 g's and strife!!

I dunno It sounds like fun but your right it need to have the wind in your face
