    Casino design fascinates me. Everything is considered and everything is intentional. Brilliant. Tricky, but brilliant.

    My husband and I joke that revel in Atlantic City failed bc their showers were so amazing people were spending more time in the showers than the casino. That being said, if you want to talk about a failed casino with a terrible design and floor plan, revel is your perfect example. Like you said, casino design is very detailed and intentional.

    Those chairs don't look the least bit comfortable :eek: I like accommodations that make me feel like I'm at home or in someone else's home.

    There were numerous reasons why Revel failed; the least of it was the showers in the room.

    POPSICLE....daaaammm! Excellent question. I am in awe. Now it makes you wonder about the women at the concert who issued warning. (Ps....Lots of early rumors are starting to be confirmed....in the strangest ways.)
    Money transferred to Phillipines (very recently) now confirmed by MLD attorney....

    Right. What is the point of even reporting it when there's no information beyond what the headline says?

    I find it very hard to believe that Danley had no idea what Paddock was up to.

    Too much information is missing.

    On CNN just now (PST)- said documents show he purchased the home in Mesquite in 2014, and chose it within five minutes of looking at it because it was at the end of a culdesac without any houses behind it, up on a hill (so lots of privacy). On the application listed his profession as gambler and said he gambled $1 million per year. He paid $369,000 cash for the house.

    After he moved in to this 55+ community, he put up privacy fencing around the home and 20 people petitioned to get it removed because it was "ugly." A neighbor is quoted as hearing him say "I don't want people looking at me and I don't want to look at other people."

    If he told her about it he risked her telling someone else. I believe he kept it from her. He put a lot of time into this plan and anyone knowing might have interfered with his ability to carry it out.

    I agree. The newer ones are very impressive to see and spend time in. It's not cheesy glitz and glamour and some of the shows are quite good. I've only been to Vegas once and I'd love to go back, and I barely gamble OR party (hard).

    There is a simple solution to that:

    Paddock should have bought a small island and make it a population of 1 - himself.
