Place Vomit Here

Drinking and gambling sure do mix, but, well, sometimes, you lose more than lady luck -- you lose your cookies. And so the fine hotels and casinos have plush carpeting to absorb it. Most of this carpeting is also quite loud, so if you think carpeting is used to absorb sound rather than bile and vomit I guess that's a matter of fighting fire with fire.

Above is the carpet from the Gold Coast. I'm partial to a bold floral pattern, but imagining acres of this is a bit deafening.

That there's the carpet from the Mirage, or it was the carpet when I was there. I guess because what happens in Vegas stays in the fibers, the carpeting was replaced in 2006.

Buckets, err, lots more to see at the Casino Carpet Gallery.
