I lived in that little corner of Indiana by Chicago riiiight by the county line. The whole state started observing DST early on in my time there but even before that our little part of the state was just "whatever time it is in chicago" including DST

the airport was from that era when people thought turning airports into high-end shopping malls was a surefire money maker, so the airport has dozens of not-so-high-end stores like swarovski and spanx

the main terminal is a single linear corridor running from gate 1 to gate 80. there is actually an elevated indoor monorail that runs from one end of the airport to the other (three stops total)

the mcdonalds had both pepsi and coke on tap

one of the restaurants was a sushi joint. mmm, detroit airport sushi!

the other terminal (that you had take a shuttle to get to) had a tim hortons in it (a novelty for this california-dweller)

fresh, cool air helps keep fatigue at bay so you gamble longer and lose more money since the probabilities guarantee that, over a long enough period, they house will always win

one of my bass guitars has been modified with pull pots for phase/series/parallel switching and I have a custom six way tone selector switch. this is on a $259 instrument

the long story short is that if you give me the opportunity to mod or hack something, i'm going to go down a rabbit hole, so i specifically picked something super commercial and black box off the shelf so that i don't get wrapped up in box mod garbage.

pittsburgh is appalachian, and since it's the only appalachian city that qualifies as "major" and it's weird for us to have a region east of the mississippi with only one we try to shoehorn it into others

this is also true. WV is really the only state that i'd count as being appalachian though, the rest would just be chunks of the state so it gets kind of weird

lol after writing that post i went outside to shovel and i thought to myself, 'it's almost definitely because he knows he'll get sucked into it'

makes sense though. it sucks that they banned all the flavors for pods but not for refillable pods

I was hooked on the mango Juul flavor for almost a year when they discontinued and I bought up all the boxes of carts I could find but it lasted me maybe two weeks. I had to track something down close to that taste or I was going to drive myself insane. I settled on something close enough but it's nicotine salts and that poo poo is headache-inducing if I get the higher mg bottle because it's all the shop has at the moment.

Absolutely. The reverse is also true (leaving Vegas even or with winnings and losing all while waiting for departing flight on airport slots)

A friend of mine that works in a casino worked straight through the previous two waves (minus a month where they shut down to put up barriers and retool the air handling) and never caught it. They had some guests catch it, and some of the staff- but funny enough it was none of the floor staff.

e: this is a native-owned casino that isn't in Vegas/Reno though- they were pretty good about masking rules and strictly enforced them, even tossing out long-time players who refused to wear them. Also the workers at the casino get pretty good gov't paid healthcare.

when I went to vegas for work the smoker in the group I was flying with was extremely jonesing for a cig after two flights with barely 20 minutes of turnaround at seatac but straight up said "I'm not going into one of those disgusting loving things, I can wait until we get outside"

little timmy's political donating helicopter mom hearing about the bad kids blowing juuls through their shirts in class and the teacher doing nothing about it and pitching a poo poo about it at her representatives is why BC has an extra 20% sin tax on vape products, including weed vapes. this is on top of the existing sales tax and tobacco tax in the case of nicotine
