    Admittedly I enjoy Vegas, but that's for the convenience to the SF Bay Area, excellent hotels, excellent selection of golf and dining, and opportunity for gambling (at my very low defined limits.) Saw Van Morrison there earlier this year and the easiest in and out experience ever.

    As for the adult clubs, every time afterwards I've thought "damn, what I could've done with that $$."

    Jimmy Fallon
    smoking pot (It HURTS! I do oral CBD, but smoking...I don't get it. How does this appeal to anyone?)
    And most of the time I enjoy fan responses to things more than the things themselves.

    Casinos. Only been to one on land, and spent time at a mini-one on a cruise ship. Both times, I dropped about $40-$50 in about 20 minutes between slots and table games and wondered what the fuss was about.

    Award shows. I don’t know what the hit songs are for Grammys. I’ve barely seen the films nominated for Oscars. I don’t care about the other awards. And I especially don’t give a fuck what anyone is wearing.

    Ice cream. Mostly because of the texture, and the cold hurts my teeth. I love chocolate milkshakes, and enjoy ice cream sandwiches, but only with the brownie and not a hard cookie.

    Cereal. I like munching on dry Coco-Puffs, Froot Loops And Cheerios, but I get absolutely grossed out if I see any cereal with milk.

    MMA. Yeah, it's what pro wrestling was before the scriptwriters took over, but I don't get the attraction.

    Chocolate cake.

    I like chocolate and I like cake, just not as one

    I'll echo Vegas. It's fake. There's hardly anything classy about it. I don't have wads of cash to throw around to have Vegas people fellate me non-stop nor does that sound appealing. The last time I was there I couldn't get out fast enough.

    And for my really controversial take, I'm with Tool with regard to LA: I wanna see it come down
    Burn it down
    Suck it down
    Flush it down

    I'll swim in Arizona Bay

    I’m not a big gambler, but I think you’d have a different opinion if you had won some money. I was 21 the first time I went to Vegas and won about $125 within my first 15 minutes in a casino. A couple years later, I won like $400 within an hour. It’s an awesome feeling.

    Perhaps. A part of it, for me, was how fast the money went in such a short period of time. If I’d even broken even over a couple of hours instead of coming out ahead, I might have enjoyed it more because I would have been entertained, at least.
