| Tiger Rant|| 17 true freshman? Is there a list? - Powerman on 9/21/14 at 1:43 pm|
I can think of 5 on offense right away
Were a lot of the players special teams players? I'm not as familiar with the young guys on defense.
| Tiger Rant|| Typical rant overreaction - Powerman on 9/21/14 at 8:31 am|
Was that a crushing loss? Yes
But let's not get ridiculous. We're not going to be a 500 team. I would say that worst case scenario we are looking at an 8-4 type year. Given all of the departing skill players on offense this year I'd say that's not bad if you chalk this up as a rebuilding year...
| Tiger Rant|| ULM Highlights? - Powerman on 9/16/14 at 5:24 pm|
Searched and don't see them anywhere
Surely there are some highlights from the game on youtube?...
| O-T Lounge|| Is there a decent rule of thumb for lbs vs pants size? - Powerman on 9/13/14 at 5:17 pm|
As in, if I'm wearing X size pants, how many pounds would it take for me to get to one x-2 size roughly?
20-25 sound like a good guess?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Got take out at P.F. Chang's today - pleasantly surprised - Powerman on 9/12/14 at 5:34 pm|
I know chains get a lot of hate on here but I thought my lunch was pretty good. I got the lomein with beef/pork combination and my friend got the pepper steak with steamed rice. Both were pretty solid. My plate was better than some of the local Chinese take out I've had here.
I haven't been th...
| O-T Lounge|| So do skinny guys really suck this bad in bed? - Powerman on 9/12/14 at 3:59 pm|
[quote]The result? Men with a higher BMI and, yes, unsightly guts, lasted an average of 7.3 minutes where the slimmer of the group could barely hold on for 2 minutes. Ouch, right? A five-minute difference is pretty significant. As in three times as long kind of significant. In fact, t...
| O-T Lounge|| Car question - replacing suspension parts - Powerman on 9/11/14 at 5:19 pm|
So I've got a lot of miles on my vehicle and I think it's about time to change out some of the suspension parts. What all should I replace? Shocks, struts, what else?...
| Music Board|| Austin City LImits Weekend 2 - Powerman on 9/8/14 at 3:15 pm|
Anyone else going? I went last year and had a great time. Going the second weekend this year and looking for some recommendations on some bands to check out.
I'm on my days off and relaxing with my new headphones and doing some exploring on google music.
| Food and Drink Board|| Any can't miss items at best stop? - Powerman on 9/1/14 at 10:21 am|
Making a pit stop on my way back home in a week. Have sadly never been there. Was going to get some Andouille, hogs head cheese, boudin, and a loaf of French bread to make some bread pudding.
I've heard there is a lot more to the store than a meat market. Any other can't miss items I should lo...
| Food and Drink Board|| Help with a gas or infrared grill purchase - Powerman on 8/27/14 at 10:15 am|
I prefer charcoal, but this is for a gift
Looking for something in the 200-350 range that's either a gas or infrared grill preferably with a side burner.
Any suggestions? Any comments on infrared vs traditional gas? Can you get a better sear with infrared? That's what this will be primarily...
| O-T Lounge|| Best places in south LA to live? - Powerman on 8/15/14 at 11:34 am|
So I've lived in Houma, BR, Nola before although I didn't have a lot of money on me during those times.
I'm considering moving back to south LA and it doesn't really matter where I live since I'm working offshore now. Any suggestions for some areas to live? I'm considering somewhere in the NOLA...
| Political Talk|| Tax revenues hit all time high for FY 2014 - Powerman on 8/15/14 at 11:28 am|
I thought that when rates go up revenues went down and vice versa? Isn't that the narrative here? Why didn't it happen?
[quote][i]Inflation-adjusted federal tax revenues[/i] ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Anyone here into the bullet proof coffee thing? - Powerman on 8/15/14 at 10:21 am|
I've tried it a handful of times. It's tasty and frothy but I don't know if I'm sold on all of the alleged health benefits and claims of increased mental focus.
For those that are unfamiliar essentially it's just coffee that you throw in a blender with some sort of fat base like unsalted butter,...
| Food and Drink Board|| Going to Luke - San Antonio this weekend - Powerman on 8/13/14 at 10:01 pm|
Any suggestions or can't miss things there?
I figure that's as close as I'll get to NOLA cuisine without actually being there. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Is Smith's Creamery Milk still available anywhere? - Powerman on 5/29/14 at 7:32 pm|
I know about the fire and that they had shut down for a while then I'm reading some articles that Kleinpeter had some sort of partnership to get them back on their feet.
I was thinking of picking some up on the way back to Texas if it's still available? Does anyone know where I can find it if it...
| Food and Drink Board|| Help with Persian food - Powerman on 2/14/14 at 2:58 pm|
So I've tried a few Iranian restaurants and most of it has been the kabob type of food served with basmati rice and vegetables (that's about all they had at the few places I've tried)
Anyway I'm looking for some place to go either tonight or tomorrow while I'm in Houston and I'm trying to hit up ...
| Political Talk|| Litmus tests for political insanity - Powerman on 2/4/14 at 11:19 am|
What are some in your book?
I think any outrage over the new Coke ad needs to be added to the list. It's about as good of a litmus test as there is. If you are offended by this commercial, you are insane and your opinions should be ignored.
What are some other classics from the past that wou...
| Political Talk|| Healthcare costs and tort reform - crushing your myths - Powerman on 2/2/14 at 11:21 am|
So there is an anchored thread which is nothing more than a troll thread where this topic got brought up.
So let's lay out some facts:
1. The U.S. spends more per capita than any other nation on healthcare by a wide margin.
In 2011 OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Developmen...
| Gaming Board|| Best portable gaming system? - Powerman on 2/1/14 at 8:32 pm|
Looks like I'm going to be working offshore in a couple of months. I know most of my time will be spent doing work but I'm sure I'll have some down time at night for reading and entertainment. Was thinking of getting a portable gaming system like a DS or Vita but haven't kept up with the gaming wo...
| Money Talk|| General advice on relocation - Powerman on 2/1/14 at 11:01 am|
So, I've put in for a job transfer within my own company that will allow me some flexibility with moving.
I'm currently in the South Texas area (Corpus Christi metro area) and I don't care for it much here to be honest.
I could have stayed here a long time with the work they had on the books b...
