RENO, NV
« on: 29 Jan 2008, 00:50 »

Yup, Reno is fucking awesome.
It's what a casino town would be like if it were established by old ladies.
It has some variation in its weather unlike Vegas
It has snow, right now and it is awesome.
If you're going to Reno via Vegas then you get to stop over in Beatty and by some jerky
It's real close to a lake not made by a big fucking damn.
It looks like it has people living lives that do not revolve around a casino
It has a big Mel's diner
Reno is pretty sweet, unless your a purdyful lady.

Really? I was thinking

Reno Dakota there's not an iota
Of kindness in you
You know you enthrall me
And yet you don't call me
It's making me blue
Pantone 292

I mean, he hasn't posted since the middle of December. Where could he be?
Maybe he got eaten by a polar bear.

Reno Dakota I'm reaching my quota
Of tears for the year
Alas and alack
You just don't call me back
You have just disappeared

Specifically, it appears that Reno is out to lunch beyond Thunderdome. He may be some time.

And then I thought about the forumite. Hopefully he didn't get shot while out to lunch beyond Thunderdome.

Reno is a cool place. There's hookers, casinos, drugs, air races (and thus more gambling), a Guitar Center, some good food if you know where to look (read: South Virginia St.), and AIR RACES HOLY SHIT THEY GO OVER 500MPH

OK, I'll tell the story.  I went to Burning Man this past summer, which meant I had a round-trip flight between Philly and Reno.  On the way back, I realized that I was standing in the security checkpoint line with a bag containing a dose of the most powerful illegal drug in the world (DMT) sitting right in my pocket.  I panicked and hastily shoved it into my backpack, reasoning that it was more likely that they'd make me turn out my pockets than my backpack.

Unfortunately I was without a current state-issued ID (I was holding a college ID and an expired passport), so the man who checked my boarding pass wrote a note on it and I proceeded to be taken aside at the metal detectors.  They asked me which stuff was mine and I told them, and they took my stuff off the conveyer belt and started wiping it with these little wipes that they stuck in a machine, presumably to analyze for traces of explosives or something.  After wiping my shoes they open my backpack and the second thing they take out is the bag containing the DMT, which (to be fair) looks more like a crushed orange Nerd candy in the bottom corner of the bag than anything.  After continuing to pull other stuff out of my bag and treat it all with the wipes, the security guard loads everything back into my bag and hands it back to me.

I just looked up the law ... I think there's a 7-year max sentence for possession of the stuff.  That's not taking into account crossing state lines or anything, either.

Lucky motherfucker, right here.  They had me dead to rights.  If the powder had been white instead of orange, or if there'd been more than ~.03 grams of it, I'd've been proper fucked, most likely.

It's funny how when you said you should be in jail, I had no doubt it related to drugs in some way.

Well, it's not like ANY of the music I talk about was made (or listened to) by sober people, ever.  And I do have a habit of going off on tangents about hallucinogens when I get a chance.

Those guys are either gay or have given up on any chance of ever getting laid.

Pro-Tip - If a cute girl asks you to do anything, your odds of sliding her a length are considerably reduced by a refusal. Some food for thought.

The last (read: only) time I went to Reno it was the last day of a school trip we took out to Mammoth Lakes, CA for my Earth Science class freshman year.

One of the girls with us got hit on by this random dude in the street who claimed to be the Wizard from the World Poker Tour.

Also the drive on US-93 between Vegas and Reno is probably the most desolate stretch of road on the face of the Earth, except maybe the one between Reno and Salt Lake City.
