Cripes, go a single day and you miss 200+ posts. I wanted to comment on so many; left thumbs instead.
Only comment I'll leave is on Wes' story about the guy getting into his car: last time I had a rental car in Las Vegas, I filled up the gas tank after hitting some thrifts, went inside to buy a Coke or something, then came back out and was getting into the car when a lady in the passenger seat started yelling "What do you think you're doing?! HALP police! Car-jacking!!" Turned out my white nondescript Oldsmobuick whatever it was rental was the same as her car and I was getting into the wrong car. Scared the shit out of her, and she me.
Ever since then, I put a giant dildo on the dashboard of a rental car - that way I know it's mine.
Also - thrifting in Vegas sucks. Don't waste your time or money - you're better off making wagers on Fremont and seeing some sights instead.
^^^ I have thrifted only once in Vegas and thought the exact same thing. I feel like someone out there must have it on lock down. I always thought it was parisvegas.
