Can we get these printed in purple and gold? - Gaston
This was at Square Books in Oxford this weekend. I assume it was just up for the weekend series, but they may keep it up all year around. I almost bought it anyway, but I'd rather it in other colors. [img]http://www.pbase.com/bslnoel/image/163131908/large.jpg[/img] ...

Are there any negatives to Z rated tires, for a sports sedan. - Gaston
They're basically the same price as the original equipment tires, but they are rated about 10,000 miles less. 55k vs 45k miles. Is that the only negative? ...

Is playing the same sport all year around too much for a child? - Gaston
Age 9, been at it since this time last year...just wondering if a summer off is better for him or not. It's soccer. Academy>Rec>Select...I'm damn ready for a break, I just feel guilty making the decision based on my level of GAF. Literally every single weekend we're out of town for a tournament, and...

Wage inequality for the fairer sex. - Gaston
Big topic recently, and obviously one that isn't easily solved or explained away. I listened to parts of the president's speech on it and he painted a picture that it was a MUCH larger issue for minorities. Not really sure how it's relevant to the topic, or even true relatively...so: [img]https:/...

Little Tokyo in Mandeville is solid sushi joint - Gaston
Stopped there for lunch and was pleasantly surprised with the quality, I say that since the building is small and unassuming. The best part was a fresh wasabi they served with the sushi. I'd never had it like that before...looked like this. [img]http://nomnomcat.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/img_8512...

What's the point of putting a bottle tree in your yard? - Gaston
Besides being trashy? [img]http://cdn.kinsmangarden.com/images/uploads/2578_2251_large.jpg[/img] Seriously, art? Looks like a bag of dicks. I don't get how anyone thinks that's a legitimate use for empty bottles of wine. ...

How would you go about blacking out rear sights on a pistol? - Gaston
I think these rear sights are too distracting. [img]http://www.pbase.com/bslnoel/image/149610773/large.jpg[/img] If I just fill them in black and go to a one dot setup I think it would be better. Any idea on something to do this with? I tried a sharpie and a lead pencil...no dice. Thinking of some...

My son's rec league team doing a 'can shake' for district funds - Gaston
Can shake at Rouse's from 10-2... What in the holy crap? How goddamn white trash is that? Luckily we'll be at a select tournament in NOLA, so I don't have to deal with it...but damn, is a 'can shake' considered fund raising these days? Wash some fricking cars or sell some damn chocolate bars. IDK,...

Sucks to not be able to figure out a work assignment. - Gaston
But it's nice to have a reason to drink. I guess I'll find out tomorrow if I have more time. I feel like I answered the 'is it safe' question, I just couldn't quantify the condition. shite man, shite. I really don't think the boss expected it, but it know he hoped I'd figure it out....

Tennis racket question, got any good players here? - Gaston
So I've picked up tennis again. I played competitively as a kid, quit when I was 16 or 17, but I never really got back into it outside of the random work leagues here and there as an adult. I have racket that I love to play with, it's a 4 stripe (Taiwanese) POG 90 that I string with fairly tight pol...

Self defense round, which do you choose? - Gaston
This is meant to be a choice between a heavy, slower round or a faster lighter round...and the introduction to different ballistic options inside one of those data points. I've included specific example for my pistol as points of reference. These are numbers off of Underwood's site. [link=(https://w...

Do you watch your kids sports practices? - Gaston
Think I'm getting jaded, it's just too damn much. At a sushi bar, so there's my answer. My son, 9, has 6.5 hours of soccer practice during the week (no Friday practice) and that doesn't include the 20 minutes we show up early or the grabass after. I just work myself up if I watch anyway. So it's...

Remove wheel locks off of older car? - Gaston
Thinking of getting my wheel locks removed on my next tire rotation. They're stock wheels on a ~2010 sedan. Who the frick is going to steal a wheel off of a 6 yr old car? Just seems like a cluster if a shop doesn't put the key back in and you have a flat. Remove or don't remove? This is what I'...

Breaking down and getting a phone case, any unique recommendations? - Gaston
Sourcing screens for these new iPhones is way more difficult than it was for earlier version, and so I must get a case. I like really odd shite though, and I can't have one that looks like I got it from a mall kiosk. Anyone have a strange case they'd recommend? Looking at this one. Made from mapl...

Kids soccer, winning or coaching more important? - Gaston
Have to make a decision soon...should I switch my son from academy soccer to select? The academy pays their coaches well and don't turn down kids, so the teams are less competitive in the state (instead if having an A, better kids, and B team they construct two equal teams). The select team, dif...
