I've written before about Ohio being a den of the politely uncivilized living in a bubbling shitpit. Maybe they are butthurt over their precious "THE Ohio State University" getting knocked out in the first round of the NCAA tournament, but now that failed state is lashing out at two of my favorite things: Booze and Bitcoin.
Sure Ohio has produced more Astronauts than any other state, but what does it really mean other than Ohio has scarred so many people to the point where they strive to remove themselves from Ohio to the greatest distances possible given the technology of the time. The land is so forsaken early inhabitants created a giant snake effigy in the earth that could only seem to be there because the wanted to warn future people that Ohio is not fit life. More optimistic theories offered by "scholars on the subject" must be missing out on the present debate where some future people might interpret the nuclear symbol as an Angel or some other good omen. Look at Ohio and the look at the snake. Suppose why they didn't make a giant Mound shaped like a bunny, tits, or any number of thing that may generally be interpreted as favorable.1
Lots of places in the United States have dumb liquor laws. Much of the South and West of the United States still is covered by blue laws that do things like forbid alcohol sales on certain days. Some especially unfortunate laws lead to the creation of the abomination known as 3.2 beer. In especially unfortunate states in the Union going to the wrong kind of store can make the difference between getting the product you intended and a thinner, watered down approximation.
The thing about Ohio is, that the United States isn't in prohibition anymore though it seems some including MADD and Podunk Fairfax, Virginia Police might like it to be. Ohio just up and made or assumed a rule prevents Bitcoin from buying booze. Will this madness end in 2014?2
- I've been confronted on all of the Ohio hate before. This isn't a condemnation of all of the people in or from Ohio. Just a good portion of them and the place in general. [↩]
