I doubt it. The "Hoax that is the 1.41%" thread is still going strong.



At a half page reply per fact, you'll wind up with about 49 pages. That ought to set the record. Assuming there are that many reply-worthy facts avout Vegas.

If not I'll just post "Hmm. Interesting" or "Who knew?" just to keep it up :P

Don't listen to your buddies, your brother-in-law's cousin, your college frat brothers or anyone else who would like to tell you otherwise. Prostitution is not legal in Vegas (part of Clark County).



You know prostitution is illegal in Tijuana. however, even the former mayor owns a beauty saloon.

Nice.

On to number 96:

Probably on of my favourite myths around Vegas (of which I will be coveriing a few in this thread, is the myth of Hunting For Bambi(NSFW) It basically involved setting up hunting expeditions with a difference. Instead of hunting deer, rich fellas would hunt naked women. With Paintballs.

In 2003, Las Vegas promoter Michael Burdick finally came clean, admitting to city officials that "Hunting for Bambi" was a hoax and that his company never actually conducted "hunting expeditions" in which wealthy male patrons stalked naked women with paintball guns. "It was all staged," Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman told The Associated Press. "The purported 'Hunt for Bambi' was a scam. There were actors and actresses, and there wasn't even the real shooting of paint balls.

Although a former mob lawyer telling you something didnt happen, doesnt mean it didnt happen, so it could still be true.

Is it just me, or does anyone else not have a problem with the Hunting for Bambi idea? It is already legal here to look at naked women, and to have paintball fights, so why not combine the two? If both sides consent, why should Big Brother stand in the way? My only concern would be that it shouldn't be painful to be shot.

WEll take some attractive semi to fully nude ladies, add some frisky testosterone filled fellas with money to burn, throw in some Nerf guns with the foam bullets soaked in paint so you know when you made a hit,or high powered water pistols filled with paint and I think we have a recipe for success.

Anyone want in on the ground floor?

Morally I have no problem with it, for the same reason I have no problem with Strippers or Prostitutes who do their job of their own volition. Its their bodies, let them do what they like.

Count me in. Where do I send the check?

My son has a Nerf gun. The range and accuracy of those things are terrible, and they constantly jam. Bambi would go unscathed unless she was over 80 years old. I'm thinking conventional paintball guns, but that shoot with a small enough force to not hurt.

Wiz -

You are FAR from alone in your thoughts. I'd even bet that you're in the majority.

The fact is, I find it amusing and perplexing that in "Sin City", Hunting for Bambi is where they put their foot down.

On a side note, paint-ball participants are required to wear head gear because of the very real danger of choking if a shot goes in the mouth, or eye injury, etc. So I'd side with whoever says that a safer alternative needs to be found.

But the general concept of hunting naked women? Where do I sign up?
