I knew I wasn't average. Mama always told me I was special!

BTW: Any statistics invoving money from 2007 are totally worthless today. If you don't believe me just ask anyone who owns a home.

I didn't make many "averages" either! But I always knew that anyway!

94% were 'very satisfied' with their trip in 2009- I know most of us usually are, but that seems like a pretty good number to have

"94% were 'very satisfied' with their trip in 2009- I know most of us usually are, but that seems like a pretty good number to have"

That's about right. After all about 4% read the fancy brochures and booked Circus Circus and Stratosphere through Travel Agencies.

Yeah, and 1% measured their bed and found it to be too small and then found bed bugs.
