// Melbourne, VIC, Australia
John Batman (21 January 1801 – 6 May 1839) was an Australian grazier, entrepreneur and explorer.
He is best known for his role in the founding of the settlement on the Yarra River which became the city of Melbourne.
When he found the current site of central Melbourne, he noted in his diary of 8 June 1835, "This will be the place for a village" and declared the land "Batmania."

The casino in Melbourne contains a ludicrous number of roulette tables.
Meanwhile, across three(!) floors of casino, I found one craps table, inside the "Vegas Room."
It's "Vegas" because it's scented and dealers are dressed in street clothes.
