Millions of years of evolution… and…

May 26, 2007

Browsing the front page of the SMH this morning, I come across this:

There’s lazy, and then there’s Las Vegas lazy.

In increasing numbers, Las Vegas tourists exhausted by the four miles of gluttony laid out before them are getting around on electric “mobility scooters.”

Don’t think trendy Vespa motorbikes. Think updated wheelchair.

Forking over about $40 a day and their pride, perfectly healthy tourists are cruising around Las Vegas casinos in transportation intended for the infirm.

Now, a year or two ago I would have got really angry in this post and swore and lashed out. I’ll hold back on all the anger… I’ll simply speak the truth and apologise if it sounds like lashing out. Because these fat, insolent, moronic, unthinking, pathetic excuses for human beings should be made to justify their continued existence – just like the shit of a city that they’re in.

Now I know that gambling can sometimes become an addictive sickness in some and I know that governments and companies are just as much to blame for this phenomenon as anyone else. But honestly – these morons travel to Las Vegas to lose their money (do they really think they’re going to win?) and then couldn’t even be bothered walking around these shithole casinos that they grace with their presence to feed their money (or loaned money) into this industry of shit.

Gambling is a scourge on our society. It is a disgustingly filthy concept that constitutes a centerpiece in the evolutionary backwater that is Las Vegas. Just when you think that we’ve hit rock bottom, it seems apt that a further slide away from true potential and glory should arise from this cesspool of gluttony.

  1. Occassionally people need grounds for a legitimate divorce.

    Meant with no sincerity…


  2. Seperating fools from their money and convincing them that they are having a good time has long been part of our culture; the generalisations you cast by throwing a blanket over the entire gambling industry leave no room for understanding or interpreting how it works; Most gamblers know that in most forms of gambling the odds are stacked heavily against them; so is it as morally incomprehensible to provide or indeed profit from this service that probably ruins as many lives as other industries it runs alongside such as Alcohol;drugs etc; It provides a major source of revenue for the government and id be interested to see what kind of percentage bracket it creates in terms of misery and suffering. would it be more than the above forementioned legalised vices??

    Cheers Grinder!
