Anyone here belong to a Moose Lodge? Are there even any in Louisiana? How would I go about joining if so. Seems pretty kick ass....
| Soccer Board|| Do soccer broadcasts forego a huge amount of ad revenue? - Y.A. Tittle on 7/13/14 at 3:23 pm|
I'm told that American sports (pro and college) HAVE to structure their games that are broadcast on TV such that they can maximize ad revenue through excessively long stoppages, TV timeouts, etc. I notice soccer doesn't do that, but has various banner ads on the field and other ways to work in spon...
| More Sports Board|| Canadian Football League question - Y.A. Tittle on 6/28/14 at 5:03 pm|
Flipping channels and see Montreal is about to lose a game against Calgary and they have ONE point.
How the hell did they do that? :confused:...
| O-T Lounge|| Is it wrong to un-friend a dead facebook friend? - Y.A. Tittle on 6/24/14 at 8:53 am|
I have a deceased facebook friend, rest his soul, whose account was apparently on some odd automatic birthday card notification deal when he passed, so that everyday I get several 'Send so-and-so birthday greetings' from his account. Yeah, csb.
Would someone look unkindly on me, if I went and de...

If so, how much more do you need to make before it is and how were you able to determine the appropriate value of what you deem "fair"?...

If not, will any candidate even be asked about it?
Why is this not a big issue for candidates? Seems like a no-brainer. Is the corn lobby that all-powerful?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Review Websites - Over-vigilant owner/manager responses - Y.A. Tittle on 5/12/14 at 2:44 pm|
Anyone else find this at least slightly offputting.
Seems to apply mostly on hotel review sites but I see it on restaurant sites as well, if not quite as often, which is why I figure this is probably the best place to ask.
While I suppose I understand the notion of wanting to address negative ...
| O-T Lounge|| Buying a house? diedinhouse.com - Y.A. Tittle on 5/6/14 at 8:13 am|
Heard an ad for this website this morning. Apparently, for a fee, they will research a prospective property you might want to purchase and alert you if someone died there because, as it claims, it could "dramatically affect the value" of the place.
Is this something a lot of people are really wo...
| O-T Lounge|| Why is Entergy's bill pay site so terrible? - Y.A. Tittle on 5/5/14 at 10:14 am|
I feel like I've been trying to pay a bill on there for a week now. Is it really so hard to create a site that is operable most of the time? :banghead:...

And, if Obama just keeps enacting them, it will solve everything.[quote]That’s why, in my State of the Union Address, I said that in this Year of Action, whenever I can act on my own to create jobs and expand opportunity for more Americans, I will. And since January, I’ve taken more than 20 executi...

Rather pleasantly surprised all in all. Had the pecan crusted catfish wife had the drum with crabmeat. Nice kids plates. No, they aren't breaking culinary ground, but everything was fresh and well executed.
My only question is, they have these big garage door things to make the whole place open...

Is that apparently the two most blatant and egregious examples of racism in the US today are a crazy incoherently rambling old Mormon cowboy from Nevada, who appears to have pretty much no contact or association with any African Americans and a crazy incoherently rambling 80 year old Jewish guy fro...
| Money Talk|| Do you fear the potential future implications of saving a sizable nest egg? - Y.A. Tittle on 4/25/14 at 10:17 am|
When you see the general statistics of how little the "average" person has saved for retirement and hear ever increasing rhetoric about wealth/income "inequality" and what we can "do about it"?
I guess this is more of a political point, but I wanted this board's perspective and ideas about how to...

Anyone tried this beer from Italy?
Wife went to Eataly in NYC and brought this back for me in a 50ml bottle.
Intrigued by what I've read about it (a barely carbonated high alcohol sort of wild yeast brew). I'm not even quite sure how to serve it (temp, glass, etc.), and was wondering if anyon...
