You’re probably thinking of The Strip, which is a very decorated road off of Las Vegas Boulevard. Some people live around there. The rest of us live on every other street that makes up the city, and its suburbs.

OK, look, fine — most of us have our graduation ceremonies at one of the big casino-hotels. BUT WE DID NOT RECEIVE OUR EDUCATION THERE.

Er…yes. But also universities and community colleges.

Oh…avoid The Strip and play video games.
