I spend a great deal of time reading blogs, forums, and news articles. Sure, I only read the “offbeat” news and the tech news, but thats not the point. The point is, I like to read things on the internet. A little postsecret on mondays; gizmodo, lifehacker, and Yahoo News on and off all week; and now I’m taking a look at forums. I admit, I used to read and troll the World of Warcraft Forums, but since I stopped playing over a year ago I haven’t really found a replacement. Today I came across the Thoughts.com Forums.
I can’t say if this will fill the void that losing the World of Warcraft forums has created, but I have to say, pretty good. Tons of threads to read, pretty active. All types of topics from TV shows to Religion to Humor. Gives me plenty to browse and comment on while I’m waiting for a classmate to finish talking about their attenuated “what if” scenario. Check it out, start contributing so I have more to read ;-). Like I said earlier, there is a large variety of topics so it keeps all of us busy. Not to mention you can flame all the posts you don’t like… Happy Trolling!
Oh, if you like postsecret, you should also take a look at The Experience Project (take a look at their confessions section).
Being in LA I am pretty close to Las Vegas. Unfortunately it is still a drive away and flights haven’t been too cheap lately. I found this service online called Casino R Us which offers gambling tours of Las Vegas! Unfortunately, they only leave from Pittsburgh & Erie, PA and Myrtle Beach, SC. Why don’t we have gambling tours leaving from Los Angeles? To be honest, I don’t really like gambling, but I do like going to Las Vegas, seeing the hotels and the casinos, and I will spend a small amount of time in a casino watching others gamble and maybe spending a little bit of money here and there on myself. Personally, I have a strong preference for the hotels on the strip, like MGM, Venetian, Paris, Mirage, etc.
It would be great though if I could take a big group on a “Las Vegas Tour” leaving from LA taking us to a few of the different hotels. Big group trips have been a challenge to organize since its hard to get everyone to Las Vegas at the same time, but I feel like a set tour would conquer that issue. If you are from PA or SC you should check out Casino R Us and their Las Vegas guide and tours.
