So, just marking the spot, a day later.

62 replies

9 35 and under
28 36-50
25 over 50.

Skewing a bit older than I expected, but a nice range nonetheless. Really appreciate the info.

Hope not TOO much of it is sock-puppet dupes. Lol...

I gave the most accurate answer that I could. Your poll needs to have at least one more line (maybe three or four more?) in order for me to be specific!



Lol...I'm limited to 10, unfortunately. Perhaps I should have made the intervals by 7s.

"Thing" was slang for penis.

Just about everything was slang for something sexual in those days. After all, public masturbation was not illegal and plays were produced in a theater which was an anteroom to a brothel.

What did I say, 80% over 50. It was probably true, but they all died in the meantime.

Lol. You don't exaggerate. Never. Couldn't happen.

29 of 64 = 80% to me, too.

At the very least, I'm old enough to remember when Vegas was about the big three-

Gambling

Hookers

Booze.

Nobody in their right mind brought their kids and Vegas didn't cater itself as a family freildy destination. Pick a hotel at random and look it up on Traveloity. I bet you can't get more than a page and a half of reviews before you see a comment about how something offended their children or that there was nothing for them to do.

I'm old enough to remember that.

Not so LOL at times. I remember one incident that took place when UCLA's basketball team was some sort of finalist or something and half the UCLA frat rat community was in town. One guy who looked like his sport was more likely to be football walked up to the craps table and presented his birth certificate proving he had recently passed 21. He also presented a Players Club card that was of a style that was at least three years old and received a congratulatory message from the Floor.

And at the NYC race track's two dollar window it was almost impossible for the underaged to make a bet but with a wad of hundreds in your hand it was easy at the higher windows.

Even San Francisco had the slogan 'screwed, blewed and tatooed'

Vegas used to be peanut shells on the floor. It was Benny Binion who picked up the shells and laid down some carpeting, hired female dealers, etc.

Circus Circus, Mirage, Treasure Island were pioneers in the family entertainment days.
