Brett Robertson - All Star Kia - Joshjrn
I know it's a frequent thread on this board asking some of the salesmen who post here questions about the car buying process. I emailed Brett after he posted on one of those threads to see if he could help me in my next car search. Considering all the help they give us on this board, I just wante...

Saint Arnold Divine No. 13 (bottle aging beers) - Joshjrn
I bought a six pack when it was released and found it somewhat underwhelming. So, I decided to let a few age, and just opened my first aged bottle after a year and a half or so, and I have to say, it's significantly better now than it was then. My first impression of the beer was mediocre at best, b...

The Murray Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect - Joshjrn
We spend quite a bit of time on this board discussing media bias. While every journalist and media organization is undoubtedly influenced by their own personal biases, I sometimes wonder if we are too quick to discount Hanlon's razor: never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by s...

The Oyez Project - Joshjrn
Cases currently before the Supreme Court of the United States are a frequently and vociferously discussed topic on these boards. Yet, for the most part, the bulk of the discussion revolves around little snippets of quotations gleaned from secondary sources. While I completely understand that the ave...

[quote]Fox Sports 910's Mike Jurecki hears the Cardinals are considering shutting down Andre Ellington (hip). The hip pointer Ellington suffered while picking up a blitz last week is apparently far more severe than originally thought. The undersized feature back will likely see a specialist soon to...

Conquistador - Joshjrn
I brought up the Conquistador in another thread and Tigertown in ATL inquired, but by time I noticed, the thread was 16 pages deep. I figured that replying there would be less than helpful, so: The Conquistador is the sandwich god would make, if god made sandwiches. It is served by a kindly South...

Best Vietnamese in Baton Rouge - Joshjrn
I ran a search and the most recent threads on the subject were from early 2013. Considering how hit or miss Vietnamese tends to be, I figured I'd ask for a refresh. If you want to delineate between favorite pho and favorite other than pho, feel free. ...

They are offering 110% of NADA book value on my car, .9% APR, etc....
