Engineers are also state licenced with no reciprocity. I have to fill out the paper work and pay for licenses in each state. And I have to continue to pay for renewal unless I want to go through the whole ordeal of the paperwork should I need to work in that state again.

Little things that annoy me: When you put the bundle of noodles into the pan of boiling water, and realise that the little black dots around the band holding them together that you'd been vaguely wondering about are in fact mouse droppings.

Most states require K12 teachers be licensed and don't have interstate reciprocity. If you move you have to reapply.

And yet if I move to Montana, a landlocked state with few lakes, I'll still be a commissioned naval officer. What world we live in, amiright?

And the largest US Naval base is in a landlocked state. (5 pts for naming the state.)

I guess it would depend on what you mean by "largest." Assuming you're going by area alone, I'd have to look it up. I know the Navy has a forest in Indiana, for instance, and I guess Great Lakes in Illinois may be landlocked, depending on your definition. IMS Tim Taylor's "Tool Time" show-within-a-show sidekick on "Home Improvement," Al, made frequent references to his naval service in Utah... Am I warm or am I cold?

Is home to the largest Naval base, but most definitely not landlocked.

I am aware of that, thus my confusion as to why Jimmy said that the largest naval base is also landlocked.

Heh, that's how I interpreted your post. I was confused too.

My bad, I should have used three ?s instead of 2 to signify confusion.

I'm pretty sure he's referring to Crane, Indiana and going off acreage rather than number of ships, aircraft, or personnel.

Indiana isn't landlocked though.

I would say that Indiana was landlocked by most definitions. A small border on a lake (not even a salt lake) doesn't stop it from being landlocked just because there are canals and rivers linking the lake to the sea. How many ocean-going ships stop in Indiana?

(eta) OK, having done the minimal amount of research I can get away with, the Welland Canal apparently lets cargo from as far afield as Chicago, a good two lakes away from Indiana, get out towards somewhere that it can be reloaded onto actual ocean-going ships. But this is still stretching the definition of "not landlocked"...

IDK. I do know from living at various spots along the Great Lakes, one doesn't feel landlocked, or at least I didn't. I do in Columbus. I did in Appalachian Ohio. But not along Lake Erie, or Lake Ontario, or even the St. Lawrence River.

I entirely disagree, Richard W.

Indiana has a deep water port on Lake Michigan which connects to the open ocean. Ships sailing internationally stop at Indiana ports. The number of ocean going ships which stop in Indiana is irrelevant so long as one can. Landlocked as nothing to do with volume of shipping.

I should also note that there are ports on the Ohio river too, though I don't know that river ports 'count'.

Regardless, Crane Naval Station is a good 200+ miles from Lake Michigan. AFAIK it has the largest land area of any US Navy base but it isn't a "Naval" base since it only has access to a fairly small lake.

You are right, of course - a lot of things are being regulated on the state level in Germany. I was trying to channel an anti-Washington US right-wing person.

That's what the fish was for.
