| Political Talk|| Is legislation via the 'wink and nod' finally jumping the shark? - Y.A. Tittle on 11/13/14 at 12:11 pm|
I look at the hilarity of this Gruber stuff and see basically the only defenses to it being either, 'well, everyone knew what we were [i]really[/i] doing' or 'we couldn't do what we really wanted, but this was just a means to get there.'
Now we have the utter farce that is Mary Landrieu trying to...
| Political Talk|| Biden and family vacation at lodge in Grand Tetons - Y.A. Tittle on 10/29/14 at 9:38 am|
I don't get why this is trying to be a hit piece. Apparently Biden and his family stayed at some lodge in Grand Teton NP that is supposed to be off limits except for "official purposes" and Time seems to be taking a shot a Biden for this.
Frankly, this seems like the type of place to me we [i]sh...
| Tiger Rant|| "Rushing the field" after Ole Miss = best troll of Bama ever - Y.A. Tittle on 10/26/14 at 1:08 pm|
Just think how pissed those fans are going to be after we beat them, and everyone, including the students, just orderly files out of the stadium....
| Tech Board|| Does it really take 6 hours to download the recent iPhone update? - Y.A. Tittle on 10/15/14 at 10:31 am|
Been putting off doing this and just plugged my phone into my computer for the first time in a while and got it going.
Is this normal that it says it's going to take this long? Or have I done something horribly wrong? :confused:...
| Tiger Rant|| Are we too beholden to "Recruiting Services"? - Y.A. Tittle on 10/6/14 at 12:39 pm|
I admit, I don't follow recruiting a ton. All I know is, every year after it's over, we are gloating about the x number of 4 or 5 stars we got.
Is part of our problem that our staff is overly-reliant on this rating system, and not really doing their own homework and/or not really recruiting to o...
| O-T Lounge|| There's a Moose Lodge Convention in town - Y.A. Tittle on 7/16/14 at 1:21 pm|
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...

Go, if so. Stu, Stu....

Have to go around noon today.
Am I going to die?...
| Political Talk|| Who here considers their pay to be less than "fair"? - Y.A. Tittle on 5/22/14 at 10:39 am|
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"?...
| Political Talk|| We have more laws than ever to keep people safe - Y.A. Tittle on 5/20/14 at 1:26 pm|
Yet, we have more people disabled than ever.
| Political Talk|| Will anyone in 2016 have repealing the ethanol mandate as part of the platform? - Y.A. Tittle on 5/18/14 at 5:12 pm|
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:...
| Political Talk|| So, the only thing holding the economy back is insufficient executive edicts? - Y.A. Tittle on 5/5/14 at 10:01 am|
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...
| Food and Drink Board|| Had Brisbi's today for the first time - Y.A. Tittle on 5/4/14 at 8:14 pm|
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...
| Political Talk|| What I've learned about race in America over the past week - Y.A. Tittle on 4/28/14 at 9:36 am|
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...
