I just looked it up. Reno to Carson City is 31 miles.

Is there anything between the two besides the geothermal plant?
I mean such that it could be considered an extended metro area as it might be Baltimore to DC?

Or just desert with an occasional cow skull? :BigGrin3:
Actually it’s kind of nice between the two. There is a small lake (Washoe Lake), some farms and a small town (Washoe City). The town is off the main highway though. It has a cool little candy shop. The Geothermal plant is just outside of Reno

I think eventually, as both Reno and Carson grow it might be an extended metro area, but not yet

Yeah, but you can just take up my new hobby. Upvoting EVERYTHING.

Someone says "I just had a baby."...like.

Someone else says "I just got diagnosed with terminal cancer"...also like. It confuses the hell out of people.

Oh hell no. Supporting those people is expensive. There are all the normal expenses + chemo, doctor's visits, etc.

You know those little mini-libraries that have become a thing recently? The ones that are little boxes with some books in them and anyone can take one to read.

Some asshole around here is stocking them with Neo-Nazi leaflets.

This is why we can't have nice things.

This one isn't so much the crime itself, but the mugshot. It isn't everyday you see a burglar with that kind of 'stache. We have only the classiest criminals here in the Silver State.

This is the kind of stoopud I encounter regularly. The state senator who introduced this bill was a Republican, and a fairly (locally) prominent one at that...

according to google
As of December 2018, there are 21 brothels in Nevada.
So it isn't exactly a big deal.

besides, tourists are wasting money in brothels that can be better spent in casinos.

I don’t have any idea what the revenue impact of these places is. I do however think that they should be legal. To me someone deciding to sell sex is no different than any other selling of labor and should be the individual’s choice
