i have a question for las vegas people: when all the old casinos are destroyed, are the signs kept in operation? for instance, the glitzy stardust sign, is it going to be trashed or maintained? i really hope they keep all those cool old signs and take care of them.

All the old signs are carefully dismantled and moved to the Neon Graveyard. Several of the old signs have been fully restored, then moved to the Neon Museum downtown.

Is the Neon graveyard the place that was featured in the movie "Vegas Vacation"? Or was that the Neon museum?

Desalinization! Dubai at least has a lot of water Nearby it's just saltwater. Las Vegas on the other hand does not have a lot of water nearby. Kind of what happens when you build a city in the middle of a desert.

I heard a proposal of creating like either a Los Angeles Resivor esq canal system or something like a pipeline leading from the Pacific it would sevrve all the southwest but mainly areas of arizona and southern nevada but that was from some cab driver in LA who told me that

las vegas circled in black and water sources circled in white, lake mead less than 30 miles from the las vegas strip covers an area greater than 1.5 million acres, holds 28.5 million acre feet (35 km³) of water, is 110 miles long and just so happens to be the largest reservoir in the United States, if the Imperial valley stopped sucking it dry it may sustain the southwest well into the next century

Well you know, with the way Global Warming is going, Las Vegas in the Dessert could be Ocean front property while Ocean Front Dubai is the Lost City of Dubai that we take mini sub tours of.

"If you look to your right, you will see the Skyline of Dubai, submerged underwater, it has become a natural reef. These tower were paid for by the money raked in by the greedy oil hog Arabs of the middle east who over charged the European nations and North America, until America discovered they had the largest deposit of oil in the word off the coast of Alaska and started drilling it, making them the Worlds Oil Supplier. Now lets go to the George Bush gift Shop."
