| O-T Lounge|| Slackline goal...the first step has been taken. - Gaston on 2/19/15 at 8:35 am|
So there's a spot near my house that I think would make a perfect slackline water crossing. I got a slackline last Christmas, but I haven't practiced enough to be competent. It's harder than you'd think. Anyway, yesterday I took the first step, I know, toward making my water crossing goal a reali...

Watch on ebay right now. Manual wind ETA movement, 40mm.
| O-T Lounge|| I need MS Word help...combine 30 reports back to back - Gaston on 2/3/15 at 9:21 am|
I have a report that has two sections of attachments with 25 or so reports in each, their own word files. I'm worried about format and numbering, but I'd like to combine them to create a pdf out of them. Anyone know how? I researched word master docs, but I don't think my version has it....
| O-T Lounge|| Kitchen Backsplash DIY Home "Improvement" - Gaston on 2/2/15 at 10:42 am|
Almost done with a DIY project...pretty wild, but hey it's my damn house.
So, I took some glass shelves I found in the yard and broke them to fit around my concrete countertops. They are 4 inches high and I back painted them. Oh frick it, I'm not explaining all this shite. Made some concrete in...
| O-T Lounge|| Is Florida the trashiest gulf coast state? - Gaston on 1/27/15 at 6:31 pm|
Texas would win hands down, but I think they've successfully convinced themselves they're exclusive enough to be arrogant (in the same way that Ole Miss fans do it...mystery to everyone else, but hey you obviously believe it).
Dude has an Ol' Roy hat on. You get that from proof of purchases from...
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone ever driven a manual Mercedes? - Gaston on 1/15/15 at 7:02 pm|
I watched a Wheeler Dealers with an manual E class, right seat driver, and realized I've never even seen a manual Merc. They made some C class ones recently, maybe up to 2012, and offered it in the SLK around that same timeline.
Anyone ever driven one? Neat rig?...
| O-T Lounge|| Is there a negative with higher speed rated tires? - Gaston on 1/10/15 at 2:38 pm|
Looking at a set of tires, Michelin P/S3, and the local place can only get them in 94W speed rating in the size I want. I know the car I'm putting them on won't go as fast as the tire is rated for (168 mph), but are there downsides to having more speed rating then needed?...

St Paul is his name and he's doing Alabama proud. I think it's retard strength.

T or F?
I heard this on NPR this weekend, but I had just turned the station and didn't get what it's in reference to. My dad and I got s kick out of it. He paid for the grand majority of my 8 years at LSU, so I just basically laughed and left it at that.
As a father of a son I wonder what I ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Who here is a fan of red bean ice cream? - Gaston on 12/20/14 at 4:45 pm|
how about the mochi version? I think the starchiness of it is a great palate cleanser. Not sure what the mochi outside does for it, maybe that's just a texture thing. Straight up is probably better, just seems a bit more natural.
| Outdoor Board|| Need a work jacket and bib - Gaston on 12/8/14 at 4:46 pm|
Are the re any brands I should look at besides whatever they have at Gander, Tractor Supply, or a Carhartt setup?
I need insulated overalls and a hoodless jacket. I'd be up for skimping on the bib a bit since I hope like hell I use it a hand full of times this winter.
Working on the shoreli...
| O-T Lounge|| Are riding boots for chicks with no calves? - Gaston on 12/4/14 at 4:31 pm|
It would be unflattering to those who do. I can't believe so many women wear them, such a moron thing to pose about. Hans Solo style...nice....
| O-T Lounge|| How much preventative maintenance do you have done to your vehicles? - Gaston on 12/4/14 at 11:04 am|
You can't wait until a battery fails, or hoses break or belts snap (or bushings or shocks or whatever goes bad), so do you just start replacing things methodically? Leave it up to the mechanic? I'm hoping that a complete inspection will turn up issues (not really) or parts showing wear so I can be...
| O-T Lounge|| Wife wants some nice jeans, Jean Therapy? - Gaston on 12/1/14 at 9:38 am|
i want to get the wife a gift certificate to a jean shop so she can go try them on before buying. Last time it was Jean therapy, is this still the best choice? Thinking $170 covers a pair of jeans and tax?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Cote Sud or La Petite Grocery for Saturday night date with the wife? - Gaston on 11/20/14 at 6:17 pm|
I mentioned Cote Sud to her and she seemed happy, thinking maybe LPG now though. Any other French joints that I should consider? Choice between the two?...
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone drive their vehicle in 'manual' mode? - Gaston on 11/4/14 at 1:50 pm|
I have a, don't touch my, Dart this week and like all modern automatics it has the manual mode. This time the plus is down and the minus is up. They really should disable this feature in rentals because holy shite it's tough to use. Of course it overrides you when you try to downshift into second ...

Anyone have an opinion on which method or instructor is best. Just Youtube and watch em all, or focus on one specific routine and practice up to that? ...

| Outdoor Board|| Does a trigger job effect the value of a pistol? - Gaston on 10/22/14 at 7:35 am|
Negatively or positively? It would be a lighter pull trigger with a shorter reset, and a much more crisp break. Why wouldn't anyone want that? Do you think with a receipt from a certified armorer you'd ever get that money if you had to sell? Could it increase the value of the gun more than the c...
| O-T Lounge|| Katrina/Rita Exposure Registry - any reason to give them time? - Gaston on 10/15/14 at 8:21 pm|
We lived in a FEMA camper for 8 or so months and for the entire time my wife was pregnant. Seems like a good data point if you were doing a study, but I'm not sure IGAF enough or even want to put blame on something for my situation. I mean, what's it for? Is it to blame some future problem on the...
