| O-T Lounge|| EMTs and Ebola - JawjaTigah on 10/15/14 at 7:49 pm|
Seriously. When people are very sick and unable to get themselves to the ER, they often call EMTs. For the sake of our brave first medical responders, what happens if they get a call from a symptomatic Ebola victim? Do they have protocols? How will they even know ebola is a possibility until it is t...

Saying they don't like ISIS/L Egypt, Saudis, Turkey, Iran are gradually inching away from meaningful opposition to the barbarians at the gate. Which is to say they are subtly inviting more US boots on the ground in Iraq by their lukewarm "support" for our new-found determination to defeat ISIS/L.

Not the movie, but the 10 episode series. Just binged my way through it. Dark, intense, scary, funny, tragic - whole range of emotions. Decent acting, maybe better than decent. Some surprises in the plot. The Gecko Brothers! I liked it. Maybe that says I've got no filters, but it was pretty good. Am...

Chick-fil-A Bowl tops my list.
Memo to Atlanta and Truett Cathy: We like the food product, but the name Chick-fil-A Bowl is so uninspiring and boring (as all corporate bowl names are).
In the CFP world, the other bowl biggies are known as Sugar, Cotton, Rose, Orange, Fiesta. Good names and re...
