This is why I think you suck

Gold & Silver Pawn Shop

There are plenty of things about Las Vegas that make me twitch.

Outside of the strip, all the buildings look the same.  It’s like when the Martians recreate a city for you and they only have a few materials to work with – Mars mud, clay tiles, concrete and the stink of desperation.

Mattress delivery is a very tricky thing to make happen.

Nothing actually stays in Vegas.

There is a metric assload of pawn shops.

There was just one pawn shop with a line down the block.

A funny thing happened on the way to the Colosseum (Cashman Field, if you require absolute accuracy).  My compatriots and I drove past the location of the pawn shop from the Pawn Stars TV show.  The commotion was baffling.  These people are waiting in a line to get inside of a pawn shop.  Because it was on TV.

I haven’t seen the show, so maybe I’m missing just how fabulous these people are.  Maybe we should have stopped.  I bet they were giving away free gold.

On the other hand, nobody was at the sign graveyard.  That shit is rusted out magic.

      Oh, you think there was a sale on fans? It does get freaking hot in Vegas. That makes some sort of sense.
