    Living under the Vegas Strip

    Very interesting article about a community that lives underneath the Vegas Strip in flood tunnels. They say as many as 700 live under there.

    That was slightly disturbing. I had no idea that actually existed.

    Re: Living under the Vegas Strip

    I was there back in 99 when they had a huge flood. There was water running into the casinos. It was one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen. A lot of porn mags and beer bottles floating.

    Lets just say it wasn't a good day to rent a mustang cobra convertible :(

    Dateline had a special on this and they said that the cops don't go down there because it's so dangerous.

    Or they'd rather have them live out of sight where natural selection is going to someday wipe them out via a storm.

    Am I the only one who is skeptical on this story? The source is The Sun.

    They only come out at night for the UNLV football games. Locals call them the UNLV Marching Band. I saw them in person last year.

    Re: Living under the Vegas Strip

    There was a story last night on Nightline about this. The video is crazy! There is a couple living down there and their "area" looks just like a room in a house complete with a bed, bookshelves, table, chairs- sans the electricity.
