If I were living in sin in VA i'd totally feel guilty about breaking the law and my girlfriend and I would go straight to the police office to turn ourselves in. It would be even more fun if I was gay. Be all "My boyfriend and I have been cohabitating. In a romantic way. I'm talking penises in all orifices here, and sleeping in the same bed and mixing our laundry and everything."

All couples who "not married to each other, lewdly and lasciviously associate and cohabit together" in VA should come clean right now, let the law do with them what it will, just to see what happens and have a laugh.

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

There's a new controversy about building a new Toll Road along side 64 in Hampton Roads. Now, I know that area is a disaster when it comes to driving and that 64 is utterly burdened and that they deserve to have more than one point of entry/exit to the shore. However the billions being sunk into that project seems to be pissing everyone north of Fredericksburg off. Don't even get me started on the cluster f*ck that's Tysons Corner now.

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

I went to VCU down in RVA, and that + MCV Medical Campus, William & Mary, VT, and UVA, among others, are all spread out amongst the rest of the state. And besides, never have I seen a greater concentration of liberals and hipsters than my time living in the Fan District down in Richmond. Yes, even greater than the number I'd see on U St in the District.

That being said I sign any and all petitions presented to me that request NoVA seceding and becoming its own state.

ha-ha-guy: I broke the law about this in Michigan for three years solid.

/I told you I was hardcore

Oh and now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure one of my tenants had his girlfriend move in, so I might be breaking the law by renting to such a couple.

/I should remember to mail her the form about emergency contact information in case something happens
//or be an ultra dick and demand an extra 250 a month and a lease update because there are now people living there
/really though as long as the rent check arrives and you aren't trashing the place, look at all the farks I give

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. "

See this is one of the reasons that church and state should be kept seperate.  As soon as any person in the position to make decision on laws uses God as an argument, they should be immediately thrown from office.
This is something that this country has completely lost sight of.

I remember reading about a political race in Australia where the candidate mentioned that God was on his side.  He got laughed out of the room.  That, to me, makes much more sense.

Still a law here in Florida too. Before my wife and I were married, we lived in 2 separate apartment complexes that never even brought up the issue. You know they're not going to turn away business. Seems the only people who would care are people who have noisy neighbors and wish to punish them

Right! So, if she weighs the same as a duck, she'd float in water, and she must be made of wood,
