Ohio is landlocked by other states but it does have access to Lake Erie which connects to the Atlantic Ocean via the St. Lawrence River. However, Ohio was not a major ocean access point for the interior during the colonial era because it was mostly inhabited by Native Americans who resisted European settlement.

There was a war fought over Ohio that indirectly influenced the American Revolution. It was called the French and Indian War (1754-1763) and it involved Britain and France competing for control of North America, including Ohio. The war ended with Britain gaining most of France’s territory east of the Mississippi River but also imposing taxes on its colonies to pay for the war debt. This led to resentment and resistance among colonists who felt they had no representation in Parliament.

The Proclamation of 1763 was one of the acts that angered colonists because it prohibited them from settling west of the Appalachian Mountains, including Ohio. Some colonists defied this order and moved into Ohio anyway, causing conflicts with Native Americans who allied with Britain during the Revolutionary War (1775-1783).

So, Ohio was not a major ocean access point for the interior but it was a contested land between Britain, France and Native Americans that contributed to colonial grievances that sparked the American Revolution.

I’m an SRE making more than I ever could hope. I see others working just as hard, if not harder, making a fraction that I make. You’re a child if you think we pay for labor by it’s intrinsic value.

And no, not everyone can just work fast food. That will crush your fucking soul

Edit: made my comment nicer since I think I misinterpreted it. Core point remains the same

Now that just sounds ridiculous. Usually engineers with experience make around $100-250k. Maybe it's $600k after stock options vest and are sold, but not as a salary (not on the average at least).

What company are you referring to? I assume not Tesla since their average salaries are much lower than that.
