| O-T Lounge|| Why does Comus still not parade? - boxcarbarney on 2/5/15 at 2:03 pm|
I know they stopped parading in 1991, after Dorothy Mae Taylor tried to singlehandedly ruin Mardi Gras. But her anti-discrimination ordinance was thrown out by federal court. This should allow Comus to parade again. Any idea why they still don't?...

Tomorrow is the day this game is available for download on the Wii U. I did not play the trilogy on the original Wii, so I'm not sure of the set up. Will I need to get the Pro Controller to play this game, or does it use the nun-chuck? ...

| Tiger Rant|| So why was the band mic'ed up? - boxcarbarney on 9/7/14 at 8:26 am|
Anyone else notice that they were trying to play the Tiger Band through the P.A. system? I guess they were concerned that the new addition would either make the stadium so loud that the band would get lost in the noise, or they were trying to make sure the band could be heard in the new addition.

| Food and Drink Board|| Two questions on cooking ribs - boxcarbarney on 7/3/14 at 10:37 am|
I normally make my ribs on the grill, but due to circumstances beyond my control I'm gonna oven cook them. I'm using baby backs this year.
First question: Oven cooking the ribs, I was thinking about cooking them at 250 degrees for around 3 hours, or when done. Good plan, bad plan?
| Political Talk|| So the SCOTUS decision is now a war on the poor? - boxcarbarney on 6/30/14 at 8:58 pm|
I'm seeing this meme pop up. When someone says that people are free to purchase their own insurance if their employer provided insurance doesn't suit their needs, the response is now "poor people can't afford to purchase their own plans."
Wasn't the Affordable Care Act supposed to fix this? Were...

I've been out of pocket for a while. I know he was released from Taliban captivity due to a prisoner trade. But whats all this about him being a desserter? His dad's tweets? Bergdahl's anti-American manifesto?

I need something I can chug in the morning before work. Not looking for the post-workout calorie bomb type shake. Just looking for something healthy. I've heard of people putting spinach and strawberries in their shakes, but I'm not sure how that would taste. So, this is what I was thinking of:

I was in high school when all of this went down.

I found this article interesting from a point of view that has not been touched on much ...
