Its strategy was to legalize all sorts of things that were illegal in California Even prostitution is legal in Nevada, in any county that decides to allow it.
Quite a few of them do. With the advent of air conditioning for summertime use and Southern Nevada's mild winters, the fortunes of the state began to turn around, as it did for Arizona , making these two states the fastest growing in the Union.
Nevada's early reputation as a "divorce haven" arose from the fact that before the no-fault divorce revolution in the s, divorces were difficult to obtain in the United States.
Already having legalized gambling and prostitution, Nevada continued the trend of boosting its profile by adopting one of the most liberal divorce statutes in the nation.
This resulted in Williams v. North Carolina , U. Supreme Court ruled North Carolina had to give " full faith and credit " to a Nevada divorce.

Pat Matcha hält das Nevada-Dreieck für eine Ente, weil in der Gegend nicht besonders viele Maschinen verunglückt seien.
Auf der kalifornischen Seite der Sierra Nevada würden derzeit noch vier Maschinen vermisst, zwei zivile und zwei militärische.
Die Luftströme entlang der Berge seien gefährlich für die Luftfahrt und könnten so zu starken Turbulenzen führen. Das Wetter in Kombination mit den geografischen Gegebenheiten in dem Gebirge sind wohl auch Steve Fossett zum Verhängnis geworden: Experten gehen davon aus, dass starke Turbulenzen und heftiger Gegenwind ihn in Bedrängnis brachten — und letztlich zum Absturz seiner Maschine führten.
