I love going to Vegas... all the different themes and fascades. But I still feel like a fish out of water (At least til I get close to lake mead or the bellagio - for the water that is, but I am off track). What they need is a Mecca for Geekdom.. I know the Hilton has their star-trek thing, but what I am talking about is geek world. Instead of a rodeo drive style shopping arena, you can have a tokyo themed shopping district with all sorts of gadgets and computer devices. maybe a sci-fi cafe. their convention hall could host conventions (sci-fi and anime) and special screenings. Maybe a Cult movie museum. Every room would have computers with network games ready to go (bc as a geek you travel half way across the country to stay in your room and play games). The Casino itself could have huge video displays running simpsons and other movies 24-7... maybe IM features on the video poker machines at the bar... and webcams all over broadcasting to the net...

       Geeks don't go out. They stay home to play video games and watch star trek re-runs. That's why they are geeks.

       //many casinos would ban geeks, especially those who instantly figure the changing odds on their machines/games, and continually beat the house.//

       Well, the geeky music can be techno and emo, the drinks could be non-alcoholic.

       I love emo and techno, but I've always found 80's new wave to be somewhat geeky.

       A geek casino would not have any blackjack, if it wished to survive.
