Glad about the doorknob thing. Had a problem with one a few years ago.

What about the rampant AIDS?

'anti-microbial' is how shysters say brass.

Seriously, brass is super effective at both killing bacteria and making door knobs. Its copper content is enough that you enjoy the germ killing effects of that metal while the alloy nature makes it shine brighter and less malleable than pure copper, which would soon scuff up something fierce and would never really shine.

This is good news to those of us who enjoy humping doorknobs.

Stop being a wanker. I AM MICROBES. My whole body is a mesh of microbes holding hands.

Only, we're very racist and will kill ALL the other microbes that don't follow suit and form together into macroscopic organisms as we are the master race and only inferior scum and dangerous insurgent microbes refuse to join us on as a communal organism. MWA HA HA HA HA HA!

Extra soundproofing isn't going to stop your room from shaking when the tard above you slams his door at farking mach 6.

Farking inconsiderate bastards, didn't your parents tell you not to slam doors? Oh yeah, there aren't parents in farking trash cans.

Okay this would seem like the right thread to ask...

Anyone sever stayed at the Metropolitan hotel in Las Vegas and if so is its big selling point prostitutes?

I ask, because I keep getting ads for the place coming up on Fark and, while the tagline is always "Breakfast on us", the visual content of the ad revolves around approaching a rather androgynous young lady, sat at a bar with a knowing look in her tired come to bed eyes.

They say nothing about the amenities of the hotel itself, just a general tone of "whores, we have whores, the Metropolitan Hotel Las Vegas, for all your whoring needs".

Just wondering really.

Since the body can only use so much vitamin C and any excess is purged thru the urinary tract, I'm assuming they're talking about golden showers. It is Vegas after all.

You must mean the Cosmopolitan. And no, they're new with a "sexy" marketing campaign. Place looked nice, I'd love to be able to afford a stay there for next year's Vegas Fark Schindig.

I was going to say this, but I'm sure the Vegas folks will come up with some kind of antimicrobial coating on imitation brass or something.

Yeah that's it, the Cosmopolitan.

Unless "breakfast" is a euphemism for prostitutes (which does seem to be the implication, but then I can't imagine prostitutes would be complimentary), their advert really tells you nothing useful about the hotel.

Though clearly the advert has resulted in us discussing them, so I suppose it kind of worked.

I doubt they are using brass the way you think. For one brass door hardware would be a big upkeep/maintenance issue for that widespread of a use. Brass hardware would usually by lacquered (fairly heavily) for this reason, and there goes the benefits out the window. There's no way to keep it looking nice otherwise.

Ironically, most commercial door hardware that you see, with the brushed aluminum look, has a base of brass or bronze.

But there is a big push being made by manufacturers with new nano-type applications of antimicrobial additives to lots of finish materials, mostly in the health care industry. Flooring, wall coverings, paints, anything you can touch. It's fairly new but I'm not surprised to see hotels as the next adopters of it.

I've been wondering about that myself. I thought: Is that what they're calling it these days? And do I have to ask for grapefruit if I want the prostitute to have breasts?

Been to there and the Aria (next door). Get a corner suite at the Aria. You wont be disappointed.

Don't do the Sky Suites though...not worth the extra cash. The corner suites seem to have more space.

Some pop artist called Vitamin C.

I suppose this beats the vitamin B showers you get in the R Kelly suite.
 
2012-10-05 09:29:50 AM  
I don't understand the vitamin C shower idea. just makes me think of squeezing limes all day and watching my hands dry out and wish for death.

Fun fact: Many pet shops carry this sort of thing. They market it as a way to test for pet stains, but it'll work for other bodily fluids too. Try it if you dare, but be prepared to re-create that one scene from Monk...
 
2012-10-05 11:40:45 AM  
I expect a certain amount of bodily fluids in a hotel room.

What I want is an "absolutely NO bedbugs!" guarantee.

I stayed in one of these newly renovated rooms at the MGM Grand a few months back. They're big, sure, but the furnishings are boring. Minimalistic.

I was nice not to have any artwork in the room. It's always crap .

*Googles*

Well, would you look at that?
 
2012-10-05 01:31:22 PM  
I've stayed in hotels that already had microbial coatings on the doorknobs.
 
2012-10-05 02:55:13 PM  
Can I smoke in there?

/I'm gonna anyway.

ALL hotels built in recent years need more soundproofing. The hotel industry gets away with murder these days.
