American excess at its most excessive.

Everything that's bad about the United States all rolled into one location.

A colossal waste of energy, in the middle of nowhere.
Las Vegas should be seen at least once, if only to prove that it really does exist, and isn't the demented fantasy of a Hollywood set designer.

I have lived in Las Vegas all my life, so get ready:
There is a big difference between the strip and the rest of Las Vegas (or at least the Eastern Side) The strip is beautiful, but most of the residents here don't go down there very often. We used to have field trips and go down to some of the casinos, but thanks to the economic crisis, the government has cut out ALL field trips for public schools. Our teachers are underpaid, our schools waste our money when we should be spending it on education, and most of our schools are people who are illegal from Mexico.

However, we do have great magnet schools here in Vegas. If you are into perfoming arts, LVA is for you! Our magnet schools are excellent programs.

Almost everything is open 24/7 or open till like midnight. However, almost all of our movie theaters are in casinos (which i sometimes a problem for younger kids) and we only have 1 miniature golf course in the Adventuredome at Circus Circus Casino.

It's very hot here during summer, so bring lots of water. If you are going to the strip, bring extra cash. Things can get pricey up here. Just remeber there is more to Vegas than Strippers and gambling.
Tourist: Your city is amazing!
Resident: Hahaha well than obviously you haven't seen Las Vegas' education!

A once beautiful town that is fast becoming an overpopulated crime riddled shithole like Los Angeles.
Las Vegas will never be the beautiful town it once was.

The Largest city in the state of Nevada. Commonly known as Sin City, due to the popularity of legalized gambling, availability of alcoholic beverages at any time (as is true throughout Nevada), and various forms and degrees of adult entertainment.
Shit dude, I went to Las Vegas and blew five thousand dollars, my wife's gonna be fuckin pissed.

A supermassive black hole that was moved from the center of the galaxy to right smack dab in the middle of the desert in nevada. It's gravitational force is so strong that nothng, not even your paycheck can escape its pull. As more of your money falls into the event horizon, vegas's mass grows ever larger.
Money caught, withen the gravitional pull of las vegas, gives off x-rays, detectable as debt here on earth, as it spirals down to oblivion.

the best city in the world. if u live here and complain about how there's nothing to do then ur a loser with no life. u probably wouldn't be happy anywhere else because you suck at life

the entertainment capital of the world. we make money off all the tourists and they get mad cuz we are taking their money.
Tourist: I loved vegas until I lost all my money, now I hate it.

Local:Yeah Las Vegas is awesome I love living here, it's so fun.

Loser:I hate living here cuz im under 21 and I have no friends to party with so I'm a sad and depressed loser. I bet Cali is better.
