Don't worry Nola residents, NOPD is doing their job - rintintin
GF and I live in the Quarter. As many know, parking is a bitch, and many days we have to go move our cars to legal parking zones in the morning (freight zones and others are open after 6 pm and on Sundays). GF goes out this morning to move her car one block and she gets pulled over by NOPD. Cop a...

Brush your teeth with hot water - rintintin
Why isn't this promoted I wonder? Almost every type of cleaning is done with hot water due to its ability to break down dirt and scum. I would assume the same is true on your teeth no? Does anyone brush their teeth with hot water?...

How sick do you think CSF fans are? - rintintin
We bitch and moan a lot here, but consider what they just went through. Up 3-0 on the best pitcher in the nation, then they get rained out and subsequently lose on a walk off the next day. Next day they go up 3-0 on the best freshman pitcher in the nation in the first inning, then lose 5-3. ...

Things humans do that nature would think is f'ed up - rintintin

My and gf and I went to a movie the other day at Canal Place and one of the previews was for a documentary about Charity Hospital and the politics that kept it shut down after Katrina.

Another Nola smoking ban thread (first night out since) - rintintin
I fully expect this thread to devolve to the usual, but last night I went out to one of my favorite bars (The Chart Room) for the first time since the ban. Boy was it strangely desolate for a Fri night. Anyone who's been to the Chart Room knows it was a notoriously smokey bar. And anybody who kno...

Another issue with Fire TV...or am I an idiot? - rintintin
I've posted previously about my discrepancies with Fire TV, and last night I realized another one. It seems as though the Prime library on the Fire TV is extremely limited compared to Prime videos offered on Amazon.com. Is this correct or am I missing something? I was browsing through documentari...

Not happy with my Fire TV so far - rintintin
I just got it in this week after reading a lot of good reviews here and elsewhere, but I must say I'm not very happy with it at this moment. I'll preface this by saying many of my problems are likely due to bad internet connection, as I get internet from a restaurant downstairs (not stealing, they o...

Grand jury announcement played right into protestors hands - rintintin
And to everyone who said they needed to stop prolonging the announcement and just get it over with, I hope this is what you wanted. This was the worst possible way to make this announcement.
