1,000 people live in Las Vegas sewers

About 300 kilometers of complicated sewers lie beneath the glittering lights of Las Vegas. Inhabited by rodents and spiders, the tunnels are also home to 1,000 people, according to news reports.

Could work for the UK, as we are an "overcrowded island?"

Vegas tunnel people a sign of the times?

“These are normal people of all ages who’ve lost their way, generally after a traumatic event.

"Many are war veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress.”

Nobody knows how many children live down there, but O’Brien has said that he has seen toys and teddy bears in the tunnels. He is pretty sure the tunnel dwellers keep the children hidden.

Yeah. Even after spending half my life there the chauvinism of the natives still amazes me. Most of those I know are only a few paychecks from disaster and entering the sewers themselves, but they all believe in the myth of american exceptionalism.

Don't get me wrong though, it is still probably the best place for a potential entrepreneur to be. If you don't mind the 1 in a thousand odds.
