1,000 Las Vegas Tunnel People Live Better Than We Do

There are certain degrading things that you have to deal with when you live in New York. Like the time I took the tour at Alcatraz only to realized that their inmates had more space than I did in Manhattan at the time. Meanwhile, I had committed no crimes and paid $400 for the privilege to live on 105th Street. Plus, they had sinks in their rooms! And now, The Daily Mail has made us feel the same way once again, with a story about 1,000 people who live in makeshift homes in Las Vegas, carved out of a labyrinth of tunnels underneath the Las Vegas strip.

The article is pretty fascinating, but the first thing that came to mind when we saw the pics? Ooh… Spacious!

    Can not find a job due to free trade jobs going to China slave labor and high taxes to give away in foreign aid. Time to stop all foreign aid and give to U.S. in the USA.

      How sad that anyone could twist this sad state of affairs in to a story about how good these poor folk have it. Shame on you.

    They don’t “live better than we do.” That’s preposterous. If you think you live so badly in Manhattan, consider that you’re living in Manhattan, and that you could easily pay less to “live better” in another location.

    I live in a 5BR 2.5BA 2900sqft. house in the DC suburbs. Do I live better than someone with a 1000sqft. condo on the UWS in NYC, or Foggy Bottom in DC, or the Castro in SF? I certainly don’t think most people would believe so, which is why such a condo could cost a couple million, and my house costs well under half that.

    Sorry Veronica – that statement was meant for the author of the story – not you.

    Aparently Meghan ( the author) got a cockroach inside her brain while living in NYC. It was not funny and you are an idiot.
