tentaculistic: I don't think NOVAns would at all mind not being saddled with the rest of Virginia... although the mountains ARE pretty. I think the rest of Virginia would miss NOVA though -- without NOVA, who would pay for those beautiful smooth roads that all Virginians get as a god-given right... except those of us paying most of the taxes?/Not that I'm bitter that I literally broke my car on potholes in NOVA//That was 10 years ago - that same stretch of road is still just as bad///I sigh in nostalgia for the gorgeous roads in poor rural Virginia
PrivateCaboose: KatjaMouse: dj1s: So, now can we have a Virginia tag? 'cause this place is Bat shiat Crazy if there ever was such a place. The good news is that we are about to export our BSC governor to the rest of the country...enjoy, and...you're welcome.Virginia isn't really that Bat Guano Crazy or the home of weird news like Florida. We also are afforded the good fortune of having some of the best institutions in the country and one of the most educated cluster of districts in the country to dilute the amount of "Hold my beer and watch this" populations in the state. However, what we do have are crazy conservative politicians who shame us but I don't consider it enough to denote our own tag. Even if we did end up mailing crocheted vaginas to our state legislature. (Might be NSFW if your cube mate has a stick up their tush)NOVA /= Virginia
ha-ha-guy: I broke the law about this in Michigan for three years solid./I told you I was hardcore
Magorn: KatjaMouse: SevenizGud: Maybe subby thinks Virginia is a city in Massachusetts.Seriously. We're the state that forced the Supreme Court once and for all to decide on whether or not mixed race couples could marry and live with one another. Spoiler alert: Virginia lost that decision.and the text of the decision of trial court in that case may be one of the most ignorant and racist things ever committed to paper by a supposedly learned man:"Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix. "
