    About 6 years ago while down town, my wife and I were playing BJ in Binions. We were at a table down the right side. We weren't having luck and about to get up when we hear a loud commotion and men running behind us towards the front. We saw they were security types carrying first aid equipment. After cashing out we headed up front to leave and there was the commotion. The security were performing CPR and about to shock a man who appeared to have a heart attack while playing craps.

    This is the crazy part. He collapsed so close to the table he was almost half under it. They were about to shock him with the paddles and would you believe the craps game didn't even pause a few minutes. The dice were still flying and the crowd was still cheering. Only in Vegas!

    BTW...didn't wait around to see if he made it.

    While in Reno playing craps a table got so hot that a guy missed last call for the bus back to San Francisco. He won enough to book a plane home though.

    At a Circus Circus crap table in Vegas I saw a guy who would not leave the hot table actually shit his pants. Crap jokes for everyone!

    I was at a sportsbook watching the Sunday night NFL game one night. Some guy parlayed 10 games including the game that was on. He was 9 of 9 so far and the current game was in the bag, all he needed was a couple more points to hit the over. It was halftime and he left feeling pretty good about himself, only needing a FG from either team to make him (I think $11,000) richer. No one scored the rest of the game.

    There was a thread similar to this several months back... I'll post what I did then...

    Elevator opened in the HRH Tower on like the 10th floor or so on a mid-summers day and in the back right corner, there was a pretty 20 something girl on her knees giving head to an obviously happy 20 something guy. In the near left corner was another girl filming it on her phone. All were in swimsuits. They looked at me, kinda giggled and got off (the elevator that is) and went down the hall... I'm assuming to finish what they started. I, sadly... got on the elevator and went to a meeting!

    I was 16, there with my mom and her friend in 1994. We were watching the pirate show in front of TI and there was a little man wearing a Leprechaun outfit in the crowd. We still laugh about it till this day.

    I can't believe I haven't seen crazier - or maybe I just don't remember!

    On my first trip to Vegas, we were playing $1 blackjack at the Sahara. After we moved to the craps table, we saw an over weight, excessive body hair, shorter guy (not quite what I'd call a midget) with full mustache and a 5 O'Clock shadow walking towards the elevator in a full pink ballerina tu-tu. Complete with pink stockings and all. We couldn't even begin to formulate guesses that made any sense.

    Saw a dude betting four piles of $10k each in white chips at Bellagio on the main floor in the blackjack pit. He was probably in his mid 20's, and had two security guards standing near by. I didn't want to sit down with my single $25 chip anyway.

    Been offered various drugs on various over passes multiple times.

    Saw the conclusion of a fight at Golden Gate downtown. Patron A was chasing Patron B throughout the casino with security bringing up the tail end. After a short stint, both were in handcuffs bleeding all over the casino floor.

    Saw a guy walking out of an elevator at Cosmo with a small chimpanzee on his shoulders heading to the floor. The guy literally had a monkey on his back....

    Same night saw a full fledged mariachi band playing music and escorting some guests through the casino floor at Cosmo.

    Run into Flavor-Flav 3 times, on 3 separate trips...

    Maybe not crazy but definitely stupid, some drunk taking money out of the fountain at Caesar's a few years ago. It didn't take long for security to grab him and haul him off though.

    Playing craps a guy comes up and places 1000 in hundred dollar bill$ on the field....money plays....loses. Walks off. I am shaking my head and the stick-man says he does it all the time. Sure enough he is back in about an hour and does it again. My friend is throwing and says Oh no, I don't want to lose my pass line bet with a 12 or 2 but would like to throw one of those! The guy throws him a red chip and my friend throws a 12. Bam! 3,000 $. Throws my friend a black and leaves without comment or any facial expression to reflect a win or loss.

    I guess he does do it all the time but we never saw him again. Just a normal looking young guy with crisp 100 $ bills.....

    saw a near riot downtown on st paddys day 2012, a fight started and next thing you knew, there were people fighting all around me and my wife.

    also, at frontier I was sitting with a friend at a machine near a ladies restroom around 3 or 4 am, and all of the sudden a bunch of paramedics appear with a stretcher. they hauled a young woman out of the bathroom who had overdosed, soaked in vomit and water.

    on a funnier note, my buddy dared a bum to pee on a limo once for like 5 bucks, down by freemont. so the bum did...and didnt realize there were people in it. so the passenger in the limo rolls down the window as this bum is peeing on the side of the limo and gets out, threatning to kick his ass. Bum runs off down the street, still peeing.

    Also me and the buddy mentioned above once took EVERYTHING out of a cab (headrests, visors, everything in the glovebox, the promo pamphlets and caddy that hung from the seat backs, the drivers coffee mug) because the driver claimed he couldnt make change for a $20 on a $9 cab ride. It was mean, but he didnt say anything as we did it, which made it funnier. you should have seen the looks we got as we exited the cab in front of the strat with half of this dudes stuff!

    I don't think I understand. You're bragging about committing theft because a driver didn't have $11 in change? (IE robbing the driver)

    My last trip, I was on the Deuce with my wife heading downtown. We had just passed the construction area of SLS and the bus pulls over for no apparent reason. We wait there for a bit with no explanation, then see some transit authority SUV pull up directly in front of the bus. I'm sitting on the lower level near the exit and a guy comes down from the upper level somewhat smiling as the transit authority guy comes onto the bus.

    He's smirking and he tells my wife and I, "you know whats going on right? some woman is up in the front row of the bus taking all her clothes off"

    We heard some screaming while the bus was going, sounded like a party. So the transit guy goes up and we know this girl is about to be brought down. In my head i'm thinking, this could be pretty awesome or it could be pretty disturbing. So i see the guy come down the steps first... everybody is anxiously looking up the steps and this massive leg takes a step down... she then proceeds to walk down with her underwear on and a shirt if i remember correctly.

    Word was she was getting completely naked in the front row where the large upper deck window is. She could barely walk out, and once she did, she had to put the rest of her clothes on, which was a challenge. My wife took a pic as she walked down the bus, it was pretty disturbing

    nope. you misuderstood....

    The driver claimed he didn't have change, and we took his stuff. But when I tried to sell it, I couldn't even get $5 for any of it. He still got over on me!
