Default Breif notes on Vegas

The Floor at the Mirage is fined $1 for every minute they spend at the front desk. On the High side, no floor has ever been fined. The fine for a Floor caught in possession of a working microphone is a flat $200. No recorded fines there, either.

After driving and walking past, literally, hundreds of restaurants, I have good news for all Italians currently residing in Vegas: You can learn to spell "restaurant." Hint: "Restaurant" is spelled neither with an i nor an o.

Vegas is overrun by mice. There seem to be several varieties. A larger-sized variety can be seen scampering across roadways in front of oncoming cars, much as house cats and armadillos do in normal parts of the world.

The Strip seems to have its own species, a pigmy variety. When first observed, I thought these mice (smaller than shrews) were juveniles, but after observing their behavior, I think they may be tiny adults. Amazingly able to walk upside down beneath the faux-limestone architectural features of the Bellagio, they make constant raiding forays to the trash receptacles conveniently placed in pedestrian walkways. They seem wary of, but undaunted by, the throngs of pedestrians through which they dart. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who knows more about these little critters.

Some links for your consideration:

Mouse or Mice?

Meadow Mice

Deer Mice

House Mouse

Mouses and Mices Populations in New Zealand's Forests

Something Else to Consider


Do you have enough time to do your own extrapolations from the above information?


Since you are in Las Vegas, I think this last link is appropriate and useful. Enjoy.

We need to meet up in Vegas sometime, Phat. We can invite Andy to join us. I'll bring the dynamite, you bring the guns, and Andy will bring the books.

I will be brief. If you are going to give a spelling lesson, at least spell your title correctly. B-R-I-E-F

I am going with the deer mouse. Had never heard of one, but have probably been around them all my life. 4 3/4" from nose to tail could fit the bill. This was the upper limit of the creatures I was sweating. It seemed that the observed specimens had bigger ears, but I'm not sure.

Hantavirus--I've been washing my hands every 5 minutes since my nature stroll along the Strip.

Here's a post fix:
