The Reel Life: Paper route edition

7 August 2014

There's still at least one town in the U.S. that has not transformed into the 21st century yet. And it's kind of cool.

Print newspapers are on the verge of extinction, and the old-fashioned paper route died long before it. For the ancient, still-breathing mummies who continue to subscribe to a newspaper, they often receive their daily news by some guy driving around in a car throwing the papers on the front lawn. There are no more kids riding their bikes delivering papers, because in most places in America, you'll rarely find two newspaper subscribers who live near each other.

But not in Carroll, Iowa, where there are still plenty of subscribers to The Daily Times Herald. And if you're a kid living in Carroll, you can still get a part-time gig delivering the paper on y our bicycle, just like the old days.

"Some people want it in their door, some people want it in their mailbox," said 11-year-old Jaxson Kuhlmann, who delivers 36 to 38 papers daily on his route. "There are some certain houses that you're like, 'People still live here?' You don't see them come out at all."

Eighty percent of The Daily Times Herald's papers are delivered by kids, according to NPR. They're paid 10 to 12 cents a copy.

This almost brings a tear to The Reel Life's eye. It reminds us of simpler times, when news wasn't always BREAKING and we could live without smart phones. The kids working their paper routes were our smart phones. The town hall was our Twitter. And instead of taking photographs of our food and putting them on Instagram, we just ate our food. And didn't tell anyone about it.

Get in the fast lane, Grandma, this bingo game is ready to roll!

7Reels Casino represents a trustworthy casino site that never ceases to amaze players with fresh and rewarding monthly casino promotions and the ultimate gameplay bonuses.
To keep their players on a constant thrill, 7 Reels Casino has recently released a new exciting video slots game – Tales of Egypt!

Tales of Egypt is a 20 lines and 5 reels top video slots game that welcomes players in the fascinating world of pyramids and mighty pharaohs, set in the ancient Egyptian age. Once you embark in this adventure, you will meet the 11 Egyptian themed symbols available during the game. Before the game round begins, the system randomly selects one of the four highest character symbols; the selected symbol will act as scatter during the next free spins round.

The most important symbols are the Archeologist that acts as a wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols - except for the scatter symbol - and the Great Pyramid acting as scatter as well as wild. The Great Pyramid substitutes for all other existing symbols.

Once the player hits three or more Great Pyramid symbols anywhere on the reels, the Raiding the Pyramid free spins round is launched. During this special round, players get up to 10 free spins to try their luck at increasing winnings.

If you are looking for extra thrills, take a lucky chance and play in Gamble mode. Place your bet, make the right guess and you could easily double your current payouts.
