Wish you were here

I'm still in Las Vegas (I'm staying through tomorrow or possibly Monday) and I have a few questions about the city.

Why do people dress here so provocatively? (Not that there's anything wrong with that, but often I want to stop them and say, "Do you dress that way back home?")

What would people do if there weren't a Las Vegas act up in? Would people more fully integrate wild partying and promiscuity into their daily lives or would they simply not do it?

Will Vegas keep growing and growing forever? When will it slow down?

Does anyone need a hotel room with its own private basketball court? (I kid you not.)

In a city that never sleeps, is 11 a.m. truly a reasonable check-out time?

Why do girls get all dolled up and go out to a club looking fabulous then spend the whole night in packs dancing with each other and looking far too hot and intimidating for a single male to approach? (Okay, that's my own insecurity showing there.)

Thanks, Sweetcat. I've been to Las Vegas so many times since I was eighteen years old that I've literally lost count. I love the fountains, think the Venetian is great, love Cesaer's (one of the older hotels but still extremely classy), and actually stayed in the Stratosphere a few years ago.

Nowadays for me it's not about the sight-seeing anymore or even about the gambling, although I do enjoy that from time to time. It's the mystery about human behavior that is always on display there.

I'm actually in Vegas so often that I'm starting to think of it as a far-flung suburb of Los Angeles. I'm starting to learn my way around by car, choose favorite shops and restaurants, etc.
