And in addition to the shopping, there's something about going to Vegas that makes me feel like I should gamble. I mean, people go there just to do that. And if it's a free trip, a little voice in my head goes "why not gamble?". But I like money to be simple--I like to have a certain amount of money pay for a certain amount of things, which have a defined price. But gambling isn't like that. It's chance, mostly. There is some skill involved, but since I totally lack any skill in that area, for me it'd be plain ol' luck. And my luck won't cut it if I don't want to lose all my money!
Gambling is really popular--millions of people go to casinos each year. But it's not just casinos--there's horse racing, bingo, the lottery... And now you can gamble from the comfort of your own home (like http://www.foxybingo.com). I've only ever gambled a few times--bunco a few times, an NCAA basketball bracket, and a few penny slot machines. Mostly it was just because it was a social activity. I know a lot of my coworkers do like to gamble though, so I'd consider doing some cheap slot machines just for kicks. Mostly I think I'll save my money and stuff my face at all of the buffets ;)
Do you gamble? Have you ever been to Vegas?
