I'm kind of embarrassed by how much I mindlessly check this dumb thing. It's almost just a subconscious ritual. I'm partially ready to just bail on it completely, but don't want to be all attention whorish and make some fruity "goodbye" post. So I think I'm gonna delete the mobile app tonight, delet...
| O-T Lounge|| Vacation to Los Angeles. What to do? - Giantkiller on 2/25/14 at 5:41 pm|
Me and the Mrs are heading to LA next week. Looking for some cool stuff to do around the city.
One thing I kinda want to do is go to a Laker game, and since they're kinda shitty, tickets are reasonable.
But other than that, what would the OT do?...

Me and the Mrs ate there last night for V-Day, and I was looking up at it when we walked in. I've been there like a million times, but just realized it's got a pretty big Mexican kinda architecture vibe on the outside.
What did it used to be, if anything else? And when did it change? Anybody kno...

Woke up this morning to no water. Walked around the house to main shutoff and everything looked fine. All our mains are underground (it's a relatively newer house, under 20 years old). I ran a space heater near the main shutoff and eventually it all started running. But it seemed like the issue was ...

Not flaming, but what would the perception be? Just winning an NFC Championship plus the titles at USC - he's already done more than a lot of coaches out there have ever managed to do. If he somehow manages to win a Super Bowl and hoists the Lombardi Trophy, would it cement him as one of the greates...

My wife and I have been kicking the tires on a move. We currently live in Jefferson Terrace, which (to me) has been the most convenient neighborhood I've ever lived in. But we're looking to build. And sadly, there's not a whole lot of options in this neighborhood.
It seems the logical direction B...

Just curious, do you think staying around 500 is enough to keep him around? I'm wondering what Benson's intentions are - how serious he is about "winning now". Does he have any chance staying past the All Star break, still hovering under 50%?
I wasn't expecting a win against Miami, but watching M...

Like on every iPhone she has ever had, she has somehow maxed out the hard drive on her phone. It's a 16, and looking through Windows explorer, she only has 1gb of photos. But right clicking on the phone itself, it is 14gb at capacity. There is no other navigation available except for the DCIM folder...

Obviously it's a little over my head, but can somebody explain to me why the major local networks choose what they choose when picking what to air during football season?
On HD channels, WBRZ has S. Car at UCF, WAFB has an infomercial, and no football on until 2:30. But non-HD channels 16 and 19 ...

Just saw on the Daily Report about how $124K is unaccounted from fare boxes since 2010, so the CFO resigned today. Not to mention CEO Brian Marshall's resigning in April, and last month's resigning of two board members, Montrell McCaleb and Isaiah Marshall.

Just wondering if there is any other service out there, minus frbo or Brett Robinson or whatever. Most of these people rent their stuff out for like $250-350 a night, which is more than fair if it's the beginning of summer.
