I remember (sorta) first time in LV. I was a youngin and we (my family) were driving across the country for some reason and we stayed in Vegas for a few days. I thought it was pretty cool because, well, itís Vegas. But I quickly learned there isnít much to do, other than the arcades - and I wasnít much of an arcade player. Buffets were awesome but thatís only twice a day.

I remember playing fake keno in the hotel/casino lobby one time when my parents were playing craps. I just marked up some tickets and pretended I was playing for real. It was pretty fun, TBH.


Then I was like, why dafaq do people bring their kids to Vegas, this is stupid.

One woman's three year played keno, the little girl circled all 80 numbers on the ticket and gave it to her mother. Now framed as a cherished momento. Though in general there really is not all that much other than movies, arcades, etc. One of the major draws of that casino that welcomed hundreds of RVs was the two dollar movies. At two dollars each you could park the kids there and not have to worry too much. I think this was in Laughlin though, can't really recall it clearly since it was so long ago.

Leaving the kids in the hotel room is probably good entertainment for them since there are often adult cable channels available. Cheapest baby sitter there is.

8617 active members. A few more votes and weíll have 1% of the active member base having voted. Probably need 18-20% in order for the results to be considered statistically significant

I wonder how that works. In consumer polls, results are weighted to correct for age related participation biases. What happens when the polling question is "how old are you?"

I do think it's easier to do the polls here on a computer instead of on a phone. And I think that method of use skews with age. So, to the extent that we already have a self-selection bias, it may be compounded by accessibility and ease of use issues.

Don't know if I buy that number. I guess it depends on how you define active. I suspect this is a lot of non posting lurkers.

Very true. Many first time posts start out with ....ĒIíve been reading this forum for a long time.. ď


Even the lurkers can vote in the age poll without having to say anything. Itís anonymous so I donít see why anyone would consciously choose not to vote. 73 vote turnout is kinda disappointing

There are approximately 120 people logged in to WOV forum at this particular moment. Even if many of them just stay permanently logged in as long as their computer is on, a vote turnout of 73 seems low.
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

I always think it is the same person who does it. Not really any new people.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?
