Some ad with a couple NFL players popped up, not in a new tab or window, just right over top of the Rant a minute ago. Blasting some bad music too. If there is a place to vote against those from happening again count me in....
| SEC Rant|| Was talking with my Auburn buddy today.. - RidiculousHype on 7/20/14 at 11:29 pm|
He said LSU hates Auburn more than Auburn hates LSU. His theory is that lately, Auburn has won close/controversial games over LSU but the opposite hasn't really happened. He mentioned the 2004 & 2006 officiating controversies, as well as Tuberville and the cigars in 1999 (which I think started it ...

How do you do this? Is it even possible in most cases?...
| Movie/TV Board|| Everybody Loves Raymond - RidiculousHype on 7/20/14 at 10:10 pm|
As time goes by I have grown to appreciate this show more and more. It may be because I've gotten older, got married and had kids and can relate better. It seems like every scene is spot on. The actors' deliveries are pitch perfect. The interaction between Ray and his dad when they paint the hou...
| Tiger Rant|| Sell me on our defensive front - RidiculousHype on 7/12/14 at 9:12 pm|
I like that we return Rasco and Hunter at DE. With those guys rushing the passer and our lockdown CB's we should be tough to pass against. My main concern is the run defense. We were softer against the run last year than we had been in the past, and this seems to be our main question mark this year....
| Political Talk|| What happened to Hartford, Connecticut? - RidiculousHype on 7/12/14 at 12:39 am|
After the Civil War, Hartford was the wealthiest city in America. Mark Twain in 1868 wrote of Hartford "Of all the beautiful towns it has been my fortune to see this is the chief."
The Hartford population increased with every census from 1790-1950. Things were going great for Hartford. It wa...
| SEC Rant|| Observations after reading the SEC previews - RidiculousHype on 7/11/14 at 4:49 pm|
Got a chance to finally start looking into what teams have coming back. Here are my thoughts on the SEC.
Arkansas and Tennessee may not show much improvement this year, but they are both recruiting well and should be ready to take big steps forward in 2015.
Ole Miss and Miss. St. are similar ...
| Music Board|| Taking Back Sunday's "Tell All Your Friends" - RidiculousHype on 7/6/14 at 9:34 am|
You know an album is good when you don't particularly care for the genre, but still listen to the album. Emo was never my thing but I still find myself listening to Tell All Your Friends. Ghost Man on Third and Timberwolves at New Jersey are standouts, but the whole album is good....
| Food and Drink Board|| Quiznos in BR - RidiculousHype on 7/2/14 at 2:08 pm|
I'm surprised all but one location in town have closed. I thought they had enough of a quality edge on Subway to justify their slightly higher prices. I though they would be like Target is to Walmart. Are they struggling nationwide or is it just a local fluke?...

This needs to happen. Every thread just spins its wheels because so many posters chime in and distract from the original debate between two posters.
It could be great if done right....

| O-T Lounge|| Do you get more value in Texas than Louisiana (home-buyers)? - RidiculousHype on 3/28/14 at 9:10 am|
Decided to look at some of the real estate listings north of Dallas. $250-300K gets you a 3,000-square foot 10-year-old house with a community swimming pool, fitness center, bike trails, and tennis courts and a golf course within walking distance. In BR what does that price point get you? And why...

| Movie/TV Board|| Did "Artificial Intelligence" stay with you? - RidiculousHype on 2/16/14 at 9:38 pm|
I saw it in the theater 13 years ago and thought it was pretty good at the time. But as I've gotten older the movie has stayed with me. Especially the scene where Haley Joel Osment finally asks the blue fairy where he came from. Such a vivid parallel to the human condition and our search for how ...

What would be my best bet for a small tablet or ipod-like device with a really good rear-facing camera (5 megapixels or better) for something like $200 or less? I would just get a camera but there is some really good video software that I use that is only available for iOS/Android/Windows. I don't m...

This was a couple weeks ago. O'Leary is defending capitalism here but we need someone like Milton Friedman who can articulate the virtues of the free market in a likable way. Personally I don't object to O'Leary's styl...

Why aren't you hearing about it in the media? It's all so predictable. They don't think the masses have the attention span to concentrate on the Super Bowl AND a political controversy simultaneously.
Monday will be a recycling of the SB and "can you believe they did THAT in the Doritos ad?". Tue...

1. Split up the nights with your wife. Go in shifts. Don't put the baby in your room because you will both be up all night. This will depend on how much maternity/paternity leave you get, but if you can arrange it to where one of you is sleeping and the other is taking care of the baby, you will...

Occasionally I'll run across a claim that a stock "bounced" or "found support" off a 10-week moving average or a 30-week moving average, etc. And while some stocks do appear to do that, I have to wonder if it's only a coincidence when it happens. What say the MT stock pros? ...
