1). It isn't a cool city. 

2). It is an objective fact.

3). Those are both beside the point anyway because that's not even the issue. The SF Bay Area is just objectively a better area for, well, just about everything. 

4). Vegas is running out of natural resources, such as clean drinking water, and growing at alarmingly unsustainable levels. Within 50 years, Vegas will basically be the setting for Mad Max: Fury Road. Raiders will still probably be there, though. 

The sad thing is the poorer people who can't afford to move if the fit hits the shan in Vegas like you predict.. The well off people of course move to another area.

Just because you personally believe it’s not a cool city doesn’t make it objective fact.

 

We've actually run experiments and found that Las Vegas is the second worst city in America.

Your life seems like a dark void where fun goes to die.  Sorry you lost a bunch of money your first time in Vegas playing blackjack like a tourist and have decided to use that as an excuse to harbor grudges against not only an entire city, but people who enjoy said city.  Maybe stick to Settlers of Catan.

1). Only when dealing with you, my friend 😘

2). I'm, literally, from Nevada. I say this from a lifetime of dealing with the fallout that city has created 😂

3). I'm more of a Dominion guy, myself. 

 

 

4). You do realize this is, like, 75% in jest, right?

You spit this propaganda every time Vegas gets mentioned.  I think you like to think you’re joking so as to rationalize the behavior.

You say that like the gambling industry isn’t the main focus of LV and all other entertainment is just there to filter people to the casinos.

Just out of curiosity, what city in your experiments comes in ahead (or behind?) it? Asking for a friend........

So Las Vegas will go from 0 major league teams in 2015 to potential 4 (NHL, NFL, MLS and MLB) ten years later.......ridiculous.

 

Nah. MLS isn’t looking too seriously at Vegas. And I’ll believe MLB when I see it. Vegas was only mentioned to light a fire under Oakland given how raw they are about the Raiders... and it worked as Oakland is considering dropping the suit. We should actually hear more today.

St. Louis isn’t that awful! There’s one place that’s far creepier:

The science is a bit flawed in that it's exclusively based on places I've been. Don't tell the other scientists though.

Huh. My calculations are just a tad off somewhere, then. I had Branson, Missouri as my worst city. 

 

Its Vegas without gambling and even more washed-up hasbeens. Yakov Smirnov has made a king's fortune there. Nuff said.

 

Hell, my Dad got stiffed on installing awnings at Silver Dollar City back in the 90s. To this day he still calls it "Steal Your Dollar City"

My numbers capped the population too high for Hillbilly Vegas to be considered. There's just too much data to sift through if you drop below a certain population. I'm actually training an AI to eventually evaluate smaller cities and make decisions on what to do with them and how best to deal with humanity in general. We're currently calling it Skynet, but that's just a working name.
