You are seeing the serenity of a park-sized fountain on earth in a geographic area that is destitute of water. This fountain is a selling point of Bellagio hotel and casino of Las Vegas. Every 30 minutes or so, water shoot out from reportedly 1200 nozzles, parts of which reach up to supposedly 73 meters high, in a choreographed synchronization with music coming from loud speakers for about 5 to 10 minutes. It's called a fountain-show.
The Bellagio hotel-casino is located right across Paris Las Vegas. The following are a couple official aerial photos for a better glance of Bellagio's artificial lake.
The hotel's name “bellagio” came from the Bellagio resort town of the Lake of Como in Italy.
Like Paris Las Vegas hotel resort, Bellagio is owned by a corporation that operates several casinos. [finance.yahoo.com][ http://finance.yahoo.com/q/pr?s=MGG ] tells us:
MGM MIRAGE owns casino resorts, including Bellagio, a European-style luxury resort located at the center of the Las Vegas Strip; MGM Grand Las Vegas, a multi-themed destination resort that includes Mansion, a collection of 30 suites and a private dining room catering to its premium gaming customers; The Mirage, a luxurious, tropically themed destination resort; the Treasure Island, a Caribbean-themed hotel-casino resort located next to The Mirage, and New York-New York, a themed destination resort on the Las Vegas Strip, with an architecture that replicates many of New York City's landmark buildings and icons, including the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge and a Coney Island-style roller coaster. The Company also offers an online gaming site, called PLAYMGMMIRAGE.com.
Looks like most of the giga shots on The Strip are owned and operated by a few literally heartless and meatless entities that are immune to pain when bloody bankruptcies come when things went south. I find the Corporation idea fascinating. A virtual entity, that can venture forth for entrepreneurship without needing to worry about his physical well-being or loved ones. These virtual corps, can sue each other's ass and compete to the death, all for the good of humanity but without hurting any human animals. It's almost like a system that runs by itself making wealth out of void. Fascinating. MGM Mirage's stock symbol is MGG.
