Naked Man Steals Bus Near Washington & Lamb

A naked man walked into a 7-Eleven store near Washington and Lamb Tuesday morning around 7:45 AM and stole a beer.

The police were called, and when they arrived, he was walking around in and out of traffic.

The man was seen flexing and hitting objects while walking around.

Eventually, he walked up to a handicapped bus and tried to get inside.

The driver would not let him in and started to drive away.

The man grabbed onto the back of the bus and rode along as it pulled away.

The man eventually broke a window and then beat the driver of the bus, throwing him out of the vehicle.

The naked man then started to drive away in the bus.

He did not get far, when he jumped out of the bus as it continued to roll about 100 yards.

The man was then captured.

An officer jumped onto the bus and stopped it.

The driver has minor injuries, and the naked man has severe lacerations to his hands.

He will be mentally evaluated, and charges are pending.

oldie, but goodie
1. First, it's pronounced LOSS-VAYGUS. It doesn't matter how they
say it in other places.

2. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Las Vegas has its
own set of traffic rules. There's no book about them. All you can do
is get in your car and hope you survive to learn them.

3. All directions start with, "Go down 95...'cause you don't want to
get on 15."

4. Las Vegas Blvd, Charleston Blvd, and Torrey Pines have no
beginning and no end.

5. It's impossible to go around a block and wind up on the same
street that you started on.
The Chamber of Commerce calls this a "scenic drive".

6. The 8:00 am rush hour is from 4:30am to 11:30am. The 5:00pm rush
hour is from 11:30am to 10:15pm. Friday's rush hour starts on Thursday
morning and ends sometime late Sunday night.

7. If you actually stop at a yellow light, then you cannot be from
Las Vegas .
You may only apply your brakes when the end of a yellow light and the
beginning of the
red light create a "pumpkin-orange" hue.

8. For the most part, you can do anything you want, as long as it
isn't in a school zone.

9. Just remember that Camino Al Norte is Martin Luther King Blvd.,
Boulder Highway is Fremont Street, Eastern Ave is 25th Street or Civic
Center Drive, Desert Inn is Lamb Blvd., Spring Mountain/Sands/Twain
are all the same street. And don't forget that Ft. Apache turns into
Rampart and then turns into Durango . Don't try to figure it out. Just
accept it. If you question the intelligence behind this naming
convention, people will simply tilt their heads to the right and
stare at you.

10. Henderson is the only place in the world where THREE "parallel"
streets intersect
at one traffic light. That would be the 4-way of Green Valley
Parkway/Eastern Avenue / Maryland Parkway. For laughs ask your
middle school Geometry teacher to try to explain it.

11. Rainbow Blvd. has THREE exits from the 95, this just makes
giving driving directions to newbies more entertaining. There is also
a Lake Mead "Drive" and a Lake Mead "Boulevard" and both run east/west
but are 30 miles apart. You have to be specific when you say "the
corner of Lake Mead and........" Again this is just another way to
harass the 5000 newcomers every month.

12. Many major roads just end abruptly in somebody's garage, a Home
Depot, a Casino or McCarran International Airport Runways and start
again after the interruption. That was done to encourage you to "see
the sights" and meet new people. For fun, just try to take Harmon
Avenue from Rainbow to Nellis.

13. If moisture at hand is determined to be rain, not sweat, all
traffic must immediately cease. Ditto for daylight savings time, girl
applying eye-shadow across the street, or a flat tire 3 lanes over. Do
not attempt to access any road after an apocalyptic event like snow,
blowing dust, or a 3-day weekend.

14. Once a year, when it rains, the Las Vegas wash and the City of
Las Vegas are one.

15. The wind blows every day, and it is impossible to live in Las
Vegas without some kind of allergy drug.

16. Construction on I-15 and US 95 is a way of life and a permanent
form of entertainment. I-215 will never be completed. Get used to it!

17. Stay away from the corner of Nellis and Las Vegas Blvd. if you
do not like the thought of being in a remake of the movie "Top Gun."

18. And, yes, we all know that man in a teddy and a tiara on Fremont
Street. His name is Leslie and he probably makes more money than you

The Las Vegas Clark County Library District is officially fucking stupid.

They're now doing an annual registration of library cards? You have to come to a local branch once a year with your government issued identification to have your card renewed.

LAME. AND HEY, THANKS FOR THE FUCKING HEADS UP. Ugh. My card has been expired for over a month now.

I'm going to the library. At least they're not demanding you pay money to have the card reinstated otherwise I'd be pissed.

What else should be added to our community interests? (four words or less per interest, please!)

In other news, I had lunch at the Vintner Grill in Summerlin today and I would definitely recommend it to others. Very swank indeed, quite the hopping place for a Saturday afternoon. I suspect it's packed full of hip 20 somethings and young executives during the evenings. One drawback: lots and lots of plastic paraded through the doors while I was there but hey, if Barbie turns you on, no harm done!

It was a bit loud too, which upgraded my migraine from "barely tolerable" to "oh fuck, shoot me now." Other than that, the music they played was varied and excellent, from Sinatra to Phantom of the Opera to some other oldie tunes.

So which is it?

Born in Las Vegas!
Moved here when I was a wee lass.
Moved here six months ago and omg what was I thinking.
Just passing through!
Born in another part of Nevada!
I've never been to Vegas but I can't resist the "join community" button!
I got hitched in Vegas!
Vegas?! I thought this community was for Philly. ):

Do you have desert landscaping?

Drought, schmought.
Yes and my front yard looks AWESOME.
No, I can't bear to tear up my pond and waterfall and fountain and water-guzzling trees and plants and lawn.
Sure in the front, but you'll have to rip off my left arm before I'll consent to turning my tiny backyard into rock heaven. Where will the dog poop?!
Really, it's not PROPER desert landscaping. I mean, where are the tumbleweeds and the cactus and the sun-baked dirt that's packed hard as brick?


har har
I don't "do" giggling.
zomg I'm totally going to tell my friends about this place.

I can't think of any more poll questions right now and I want a cup of coffee.

Coffee > orange juice
Boo, coffee.
More questions, more questions NOW.
Crappiest poll ever.
No, you're crappiest!
Have a nice day!

Greetings one and all!

Whether you live here or plan on visiting, or just want to get up to some generalized tomfoolery, have a ball. lol_vegas has only a few rules like no death and destruction, but otherwise have fun.

Long posts with awesome pornography, snapshots of cool shit happening around town or fliers for events, please put behind a cut.

Current Mood: good
