    Hello everyone! I've just moved to Vegas two days ago. I'm by myself and dont really know anyone out here so I'm looking to make new friends. I'm a 22 year old guy and next month I am taking the Police Exam for the Metropolitan Police Department. If anyone wants to chat sometime and give me the best info or show me around Vegas than just give me a PM!! :)

    Nice to see a new face...you should find out where to avoid first (traffic and things of that nature)

    hope everything goes well for you.

    Yo, welcome to Vegas, your new home, Estranged.

    Good luck on your Metro Entrance Exam, man.

    Starbucks...I just heard about the coffee empire not wanting to support the War so I'm boycotting my Light Frap and my fave, the Java Chip w/o whip and drinking more Milk Tea drinks at Chinatown. Read that some Marines wrote Starbucks to send some coffee grounds/beans to Iraq or Afghanistan but Starbucks politely replied that they do not support the war that (our) troops are fighting in. Boycott!

    So, if I came in with a military uniform, I'd be turned away and be called a baby-killer, right? ;) War for Oil lover?

    I fought a fire once, when I was 16 in my parents backyard; it erupted from a flaming gas can that had spilled in a twelve foot radius on the grass. Which I had NO PART in starting by the way. Well not no part. Well Ok, I started it, but it was an accident. See there was a big anthill in my moms garden so i thought I'd get rid of it by burning them out. I doused the hill with charcoal started, lit it and let it burn a few minutes. When the flames died out though, the ants just started coming right back up out of the hole. So I thought I'd try something stronger, like...gasoline. I started driping it down the hole, but soon found that my previous observation was wrong when flames leapt from the hole, up the stream of gas and into the spout. Thinking that I might be faster than a speeding flame I immediately ripped the spout off the can which then erupted with flames. Worried about a possible explosion, and thinking that I might minimize damage I threw the can as hard as I could toward the unlandscaped side of the backyard where I thoought it could just burn out in the dirt. In my excitement, I ended up throwing it really hard, straight down, and gasoline spilled out onto the lawn creating a twelve foot pond of flaming hell. After about twenty minutes of trying to contain and smother the flames, and really trying to keep them from getting to the house I got the fire out, but not before losing my eyebrows and the whole front potion of my hair. I was only minorly burned on my hands and face though, and ended up shaving my head for the first time as a result of it.

    So Petra, since I am technically a fire fighter, can I get a free drink?
