It's amazing how fast Las Vegas is growing. I just keep wondering where the water is going to come from to keep all those new golf courses and lawns nice and green fifty years from now. What a place to build a city like Las Vegas, or any major city for that matter. Too bad there wasn't a team of fluvial/hydro GIS experts fifty years ago advising the mob on the best place to build a city in the west.

On a similar note: I've always wondered how much of that damned water near Vegas (Lake Mead, Lake Foul) is lost to evaporation every year. I have this weird feeling large bathtubs in the desert have a tendency to evaporate rather quickly. Just a guess.
