01:17 rjbs Sorry, did someone mention Pennsylvania liquor laws?
01:17 timotimo totally
01:18 timotimo sounds like it's your time to shine with some insider information?
01:18 timotimo expert testimonials, perhaps?
01:18 rjbs TimToady: So, PA (via PLCB) has monopoly on sales of wine and spirits.  You can only buy what they sell.
01:18 rjbs It is illegal to drive to NJ, buy wine, and come home.  There are troopers who park at the bridges and wait to catch people doing this.
01:19 rjbs https://rjbs.manxome.org/rubric/entry/1500
01:31 TimToady same in Washington state, but they aren't mean at the border :)
01:32 rjbs You can import from other countries, but not other states.  It's all crazy.
01:32 TimToady given how PA works, I'm surprised that each county doesn't enforce it's own laws at the county borders...
01:32 rjbs Every governor promises to dissolve the PLCB out of one side of his mouth, and to uphold the union out of the other.
01:32 TimToady you wanna ride a bus, you get off at the county border and get on another bus, I hear
01:33 rjbs Man wasn't meant to range so far, ayuh.
01:33 TimToady maybe that's why people drive up to the end of the onramp and stop, cause they think it's a county boundary :)
01:33 TimToady and don't you dare go to a community college in someone else's county...
01:34 rjbs << Upon its creation, Governor Gifford Pinchot stated that the purpose of the Board was to "discourage the purchase of alcoholic beverages by making it as inconvenient and expensive as possible>>
01:34 TimToady the spirit of prohibition lives on...
01:35 rjbs now they say that it's to use its buying power to give us a good deal
01:35 rjbs but it mostly taxes it back up to market price
01:35 rjbs most
01:35 TimToady ss/inconvenient and expensive/graft-ridden/
01:35 rjbs much of the taxing is the Johnstown Flood Tax
01:35 rjbs for relief for the victims of flooding in Johnston in 1889
01:36 TimToady well, if they'd just quit flooding Johnstown, they wouldn't need the tax anymore
01:36 rjbs Actually, it may be for the later 1924 flood, but either way, it was to keep the steel industry there.
01:36 rjbs http://www.johnstownfloodtax.com/
01:36 rjbs Anyway, I love the Commonwealth, but this issue is cuh-ray-zee.
01:37 TimToady 1936, 1977 too
01:37 timotimo .tell stmuk since you're the genius behind VimColour, could you perhaps figure out why the project euler code file makes vim so upset when trying to highlight the source? i think it might be prob008-duff2.pl
01:37 TimToady yeah, I got friends in Pennsylvania, who tell me all about :)
01:37 timotimo er
01:37 timotimo ww
01:38 rjbs On the up side, we have some fantastic breweries.
01:38 TimToady yeah, well, like the Johnstown is only marginally related to the idea of a "release" :)
01:38 TimToady yeah, well, I bet it's still trade secret whether they use wheat
01:39 rjbs I think most of the ones I like will gladly tell you that ... they do. :(
01:39 TimToady (bavarian purity laws)++
01:40 * TimToady has to just try things by guess and by gosh (well, unless it says "wheat beer" as you point out :)
01:40 * TimToady recently discovered he's okay with Black Butte Porter
01:40 rjbs "If he lives, there's no wheat."
01:41 TimToady in fact, I'm living right now :)
