    it's a huge charge. ridiculous, but, i guess people are demanding it that much.

    The monorail is designed specifically to cater to the lazy tourist who is too cheap to get a taxicab. Since it doesn't go anywhere near where I live, I've never paid attention to it. *shrug*

    The last time I checked, they were planning on setting the price at $3 per ride, which seems like a straight up rip off to me.

    the monorail is a rip off. you may as well buy a monthly pass from the vegas transit authority for the same price as a 3 day pass.

    Not talking about anything possible or plausible will just get you branded as a nut case.
    I stand corrected!

    Anyway, anyway, guys guys guys, come on. I'm
    in this computer, right. So I'm looking
    around, looking around, you know, throwing
    commands at it, I don't know where it is or
    what it does or anything. It's like, it's
    like choice, it's just beautiful, okay. Like
    four hours I'm just messing around in there.
    Finally I figure out, that it's a monorail.
    Right, okay wait, okay, so it's a monorail. So, this
    morning, I look in the paper, some monorail in Las
    Vegas, Nevada starts running at speeds of over 90
    MPH for about thirty minutes before it stops.

    That's kinda cool.

    That was me. That was me. I did that.

    You did this from your house.


    PHREAK
    What are you, stoned or stupid? You don't
    hack a monorail across state lines from your
    house, you'll get nailed by the FBI. Where
    are your brains, in your ass? Don't you know
    anything?


    [btw... I hate that bloody movie.]

    Like I always say, you can never have too much money or too many witnesses.

    I do believe so, and if not... there's enough to suggest that it very well may happen due to the previous posts - that's why I'm staying as far away from the damn thing during the con as I can, with plenty of witnesses.

    Just as long as nobody tries to do the stunt portrayed in Highlander II on that longer stretch of track(slamming the train to unrealistic speeds), I dont think things will be much of a problem. It's a monorail, something where real lives are at stake, not some simulation on a computer screen. If you want to be a masochist about it, go ahead since there's a lot of people ready for fresh victims as referred to earlier, and it wont help your case next year when your "fun" causes trouble for the rest of us.

    Sir, even though you are speaking against do this, the fact that you are discussing it leads us to believe you are involved in terrorist activities, please wait by your door; we will be by to pick you up soon.

    This country is becoming so liberal that if you get run over by a monorail residing 30 feet in the air, your family can sue for millions, it is all the monorail's fault, oh and the fault of SUV owners too of course.
