Nevada would be the most boring state in America if you didn't have Vegas, Reno, and mountains sticking out of the desert from nowhere.

It's an amazing place, in the middle of nothing these world destinations pop up like they were lifted from somewhere else into the desert.

That's true..if you didn't have the casino's, which is the main attraction for living out here, then you wouldn't have all the people that came later.

But on the other hand, some people just like dry dusty area's of the desert and live there no matter what in small towns here and there, where they have to drive for miles for supplies.

I don't understand why people need constant stimulation not to be "bored".
All the noise and constant activity of cities give me a headache.

Ditto that. I prefer natural stimulation to the synthetic crap that passes for entertainment these days. Seems almost everyone in this hyper, artificial, over caffeinated culture has ADHD. I found the Grand Canyon awe inspiring; my hyper friend called it a big hole in the ground.

i dig living in las vegas because i can have both....but to each their own; not everyone appreciates both sides of the NV spectrum (gaudy nonsense and natural splendor). but there is something for almost everyone....

Yes..... you're right, Pink.
I'm a trees and rain kinda gal -- they make me little heart sing. But whenever I'm in a desert area, I feel the pull, the draw of the open space, the far vista, the quiet sand. I'm quickly speechless, spellbound by the calmness of its high frequencies, and by how expanded my reach and vision suddenly feel.

A huge number of American states are boring by definition: Oklahoma, Iowa, Idaho, New Mexico, Nebraska, Vermont, and a few others. You could also say New York would be boring w/o NYC or say Illinois would be boring w/o Chicago.
