Correct! Via recent tests it was determined I have a gluten intolerance, had no idea. Went off gluten cold-turkey for 3 weeks and don't feel bloated and have more energy - don't have Celiac but the gluten thing blew my mind. Same test determined dairy doesn't agree with me and that part really sucks because I love my lattes and ice cream and the substitutes are no bueno and I don't care what testimonial laden miracle product they push.

Personally I consider Northern VA a big circle from Manassas on in. Seeing bottlenecks from Leesburg, Manassas, Woodbridge and all the way into DC I don't see where more people/cars/houses/water/roads/resources is supposed to come from unless we just give up and become LA.

Short answer NO! I really wish businesses like Apple, Amazon, etc would see the bigger picture and maybe put these new offices in West Virginia, or Mississippi - places that could use the jobs and don't already have the traffic nightmares and existing resource strains. Folks on the other side say "WV and MS don't have the educated workforce" and I say "well, it'll stay that way until corps start stepping up and folks do have cars - I know folks who live in WV and drive to DC for work."

Pot is a drug and therefore alters the way people perceive things and think while they are under the influence. It only takes a low-to-moderate dose to trigger car accidents.

Most people get their first job doing something that requires little to no experience. If wages are raised, chances are that employers won’t be willing to take chances with low experienced people because it will be a much larger investment. It will be much harder than it already is for people to get their first job and prove themselves.
