Burge and Blair do Bonneville

Head over to Iowahawk and scroll down for the start of the 5 part Bonneville Diary starring David Burge and Tim Blair. Think of it as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas without the fear or loathing and with nitromethane instead of illicit substances. But there is a casino:
But something still bugs me -- that damned global warming video slot machine down in the Montego Bay lobby. "Stay here," I tell Hawkspawn. "I'll be back in a couple of minutes." I slide a fiver into the machine, feeling strangely lucky. After three or four spins, the thing goes crazy. I line up a staggered row of global warming cubes; a dancing tuxedoed penguin appears, busts through his snow globe and hops into the waiting arms of pink lady walrus with enormous knockers. 52 bucks! I collect the windfall and return to the room. I crank the A/C down to 63 degrees.

Take that, Gaia!
