Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC)surely sees its fair share of undesirables given its 100,000+ attendance, but 2016’s edition will see the presence of a truly despicable organization: The Westboro Baptist Church.

A piece of high-tech gear that is used for scouting combat areas in war zones, has been put to entirely different use in Las Vegas last weekend. At a hotel pool party, people could hire a drone that delivers their bottles of booze to them. Las Vegas is not a city known for its subtlety. It’s one of the wildest and luxurious places to party – if you show the right amount of money, that is.
