Las Vegas And Isaac Newton

Two rules, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas and an object at rest stays at rest until external force is applied to it, intersect neatly in this news story. It seems during the last six months emergency crews in Las Vegas had to transport 75 people who weighed more than 500 pounds, each. Who knew there were so many people of such gravitas in Vegas? Odd that obese people would choose a hot environment like Nevada. I'm pretty famine resistant too and I can't stand the heat, although Nevada is much less humid that Connecticut. Maybe it's the cheap breakfasts or the sedentary lifestyle of the gaming tables or the proximity of institutions like the Mustang Ranch where anyone with a credit card can get lucky.
