Is This The War Of The Worlds? Or How To Get Burnt In Lost Wages, Nevada. - Poem by Joe Rosochacki
No it isn't Darth Vader, it's the Vdara,
It is the terrestrial parabolic shape that houses lost souls or I say souls that lost,
Whether it be craps, slots, blackjack, baccarat on Canasta.
It seems as though the one of grand poopahs on the strip, MGM,
Had mis-designed the architecture of this enormous hotel,
The design flaws made it a death ray,
-and it burnt the guests by the pool side, practically everyone and caused plastic melting.
Guests at a new hotel in Las Vegas have complained of receiving severe burns from a 'death ray' of sunlight caused by the unique design of the building.
Who'd ever thought, who'd ever know,
That the rays from the desert sun would rain down upon them in concentrated form.
Due to the concave shape of the Vdara hotel, the strong Nevada sun reflects off its all-glass front and directly onto sections of the swimming pool area below.
Chicago attorney Bill Pintas felt the power of the dangerous ray first hand last week.
Bill is not a tree hugger nor a sooth-sayer
'It felt like I had a chemical burn. I couldn't imagine why my head was burning, ' he said.
'Within 30 seconds, the back of my legs were burning. My first though was, 'Jesus, they destroyed the ozone layer! '
He was lucky he had gone through spontaneous combustion.
Gordon Absher, a spokesman for MGM Resorts, which owns the Vdara hotel, said they was aware of the issue and designers were working with resort staff to come up with a solution.
In fact it is claimed that the designers foresaw the issue with the reflecting sun but thought they had solved it by installing a high-tech film on the south-facing panes of glass.
Not only do they take your money, they will burn your ass.
