Two Ferris wheel projects in motion for Las Vegas strip

..and the numbers on them, odd/even? Oh wait..numbers usually alternate odd/even. To borrow a phrase from the great Emily Litella.."Never mind."

This gets a giant "meh" from me. Apparently these giant ferris wheels (London Eye) are that popular to justify the ones proposed here and in Orlando. I am ferriphobic anyhow (numerous dreams of me in a ferris wheel, it jumping off it's support and rolling down a hill) so take my "meh" with salt.

You must have seen one of my favorite overlooked movies...Spielberg's 1941..one time too many.

Looks like the FAA just approved the 500ft height restriction.
