I didn't want shit in the COVID-19 vaccination thread. Couldn't find a good place so it gets its own thread.

"Victor Ricchezza, a Geology Professor at Georgia State University added: “I haven't smoked in years but was just joking with my wife that I could almost certainly smoke 100 cigarettes by the time we hit North Carolina in the car.”c

I never smoked but my partner did.

I am sure with a bit of coaching I will have done at least a hundred by the time I hit the north carolina border.

You posted two identical threads. I expect more from our overlord.

Damn. I thought something was amiss when I posted the thread from my phone. There was a weird lag plus something is going on with the mobile portion of Anandtech. There's comments in the Forum issue section. I just didn't think to look if it posted two threads. Thanks for the heads up.

You gotta understand the history of NC and tobacco. What city do you suppose Winston and Salem cigarettes are named after. Maybe Winston-Salem, NC? For decades the cheapest cigarettes in the country were in NC, simply because the state would not tax them.

Makes an odd kind of sense I suppose.

Perhaps Wisconsin should prioritize anyone who has downed 100 gallons of milk in their lifetime. Or maybe 100 pounds of cheese? Or 100 six-packs of beer? Vermont could go with 100 pints of maple syrup. Wyoming, 100 pairs of mountain oysters. The possibilities are endless. 😄

Bet cigs are still relatively cheap in that state.

If you go knocking WNC BBQ there sonny, it might rile me up a bit more than you want me riled.
You guys over there just ruining the best BBQ in the nation, trying to give us a bad name in the east by allowing everyone else to confuse us with those sister-fuckers in SC with their repulsive neon yellow mustard sauces.

NC puts cole slaw on pulled pork sandwiches which should be outlawed. If I want a salad, I’ll order a salad.

I've had mix emotions about this. Sometimes it just works AWESOMELY. Other times it's just a hot mess.
