So I've been reading through this board for the better part of the last week (when time permits) and I've come to the conclusion it's about time I get my first credit card. Besides some cards I got sucked into signing up for years ago (dept stores, though I've never carried a balance on them and hav...
| Political Talk|| Wise words from Tocqueville - BamaMan45 on 11/7/12 at 4:38 pm|
Tocqueville warned that "modern democracy may be adept at inventing new forms of tyranny, because radical equality could lead to the materialism of an expanding bourgeoisie and to the selfishness of individualism. In such conditions "we lose interest in the future of our descendents...and meekly all...
| Tiger Rant|| Tailgating/Parking question - BamaMan45 on 10/31/12 at 10:31 pm|
So I normally don't set up to tailgate at LSU because I never have a parking pass and the game has been early enough that I just accept invites to my friends who are tailgating in the area. However, this year I have a parking pass and figured I'd try to make a decent attempt at this since it's a lat...
| Texas A&M Sports Board|| Making my first gameday visit to CS for the LSU game - BamaMan45 on 10/14/12 at 2:55 pm|
In case anyone missed my post in the introduction thread, I'm a new Aggies fan. Quick rundown of how that came to be:
Born & raised in Baton Rouge. Grandfather was a Bama fan, rest of family liked LSU. I choose wisely, have always despised LSU. Graduated from a school in LA & looking to go back to...
| Gaming Board|| Advice on pricing for bundle of PS2 console, games, controllers, etc - BamaMan45 on 10/10/12 at 9:48 pm|
I ran across my PS2 (original case) as well as a ton of old PS1 games, controllers, memory cards & a Gameboy color that I apparently never got around to trading in. Also found a few PS2 games and was considering throwing 2 PS3 games in the mix. I know I'm not gonna get anything for trading this stuf...
| O-T Lounge|| Workout Crew....online stores for supplements? - BamaMan45 on 10/9/12 at 5:27 pm|
I've been a customer of BB.com for years now. Never had any problems with shipments or incorrect orders, and the prices are usually comparable to other places. I've tried a few other sites (can't remember which at the moment) but generally stick with BB.com or Amazon if they have something I need th...

Sears got about 80 in a few hours ago. My friend at Lowe's just said they got a shipment of 100 in 20 min ago. $800, 5500 gen at Lowe's, not sure on the specs for the ones at Sears.
Just a heads up in case anyone still wants/needs one...
| SEC Rant|| Attn Aggie fans: Any advice for first visit to College Station? - BamaMan45 on 8/27/12 at 9:50 pm|
I'll be going to Dallas for the Bama/Michigan game on Friday, but I figured I'd checkout the campus of our newest division rival while I'm in Texas. I'm actually thinking about going back to school for another degree or a masters, so this was a another reason to go since I want to go out of state th...

Considering gas prices continue to climb, I can only hope non-ethanol prices will hit their peak soon and start to fall below ethanol prices. Of course the ethanol mandate is still in effect, & ...

I'm in Ontario, CA for the national championship and finally got to go to In-N-Out after reading about it many times in articles discussing the best fast food bugers. If someone opened one of these in Baton Rouge, I could see myself eating there every day. This shite is like crack; I ate there 4 hour...

Me and my friend are going to the Bama/Ole Miss game next week. This is my first game in Oxford, so I don't know anything about the area or what I should do while I'm there. We're leaving LA on Friday and have to stay in Batesville since there weren't any rooms in Oxford. Couple of questions:

I've always liked UPS better, but lately they haven't really had their shite together and the shipping has been pretty slow and their tracking updates have been ever slower. I've gotten two packages through FedEx this week and shipped one through them yesterday to Stafford, TX. Of the 2 packages I re...

I've seen one or two people mention it, mainly in the foreign film threads we have on this board sometimes. I haven't seen Quarantine (which is the U.S. remake of REC) but based on what I've read, [REC] is much, much better. Netflix says it'll be here tomorrow, looking forward to watching it. Anyon...

I've always like Favreau as an actor, but for some reason, I did not realize that he is the same Jon Favreau who directed [i]Iron Man[/i]. I researched his career some and Favreau has basically come from nowhere and quietly had one of the more successful Hollywood careers over the last 10-15 years. ...

She's the almost 30 years old moron who went on a "social networking site" and let the world know that she thought the fath...
| Movie/TV Board|| Papillon... - BamaMan45 on 6/11/09 at 6:06 pm|
is an unbelievably good film. McQueen is one of my favorite actors ever and he was amazing. Hoffman was also pretty solid playing the role of Dega. The scenary was gorgeous too for a movie made in 1973. It was based on real events, which makes it even better IMO. It's probably number 2 on my list of...

I'm not a huge fan of the NFL, but the draft is fun to watch and I've always noticed Seattle drafts SEC players. I looked up some of their draft history and found some interesting stats:
Since 1999, Seattle has drafted at least one player from the SEC each year.
22 SEC players have been drafted by...
| Movie/TV Board|| The Unusuals - BamaMan45 on 4/21/09 at 9:14 pm|
I really want to like this show, but damn they're making it hard to enjoy. Harold Perrineau and Adam Goldberg as partners are the only thing that makes the show funny or worth watching. They're hilarious and honestly, it'd probably be much better if the show just followed those 2 the whole time. Oh,...

Anyway, TIA for the help. :cheers:...
