| O-T Lounge|| Why Don't We See More Females with "Jr." or "Sr." suffixes These Days - SUB on 1/14/15 at 2:48 pm|
You'd think that after all the feminist movements and more and more women not taking their husbands names, that this would also follow suit? Do women just hate the idea of living with another woman with the same name? What gives?...

This could be a game changer if they do it right. The great part is that you can get access with Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and a few other devices. You won't need any dish.

I'm trying to figure out the best plan to save and invest $ for my kids college tuition. I live in Texas, and they have a few different savings plans that basically lock in the price of tuition today for any public college in the state. I can do monthly installments for this, however there's a 8% a...

Has anyone seen this? Pretty disturbing / hilarious. The cat moves around and in an annoying voice says "Chase me. Rape me. You'll have fun!"
The company says that it is supposed to say "Race me."

I'm taking a trip abroad with the wife (no pics) next year. We have a young child and will have our parents watching her while we are gone.

I remember seeing this a year or two ago, but I can't find it. Basically, the concept is that you want to take a picture with 2 people in it, but 1 person has to hold the camera. So person 1 takes a picture of person 2 on the left side of a park bench. Then person 2 takes a picture of person 1 on...

Watching the PAC 12 championship, and it's just cringing to watch and listen to the announcers. They just seem so damn fake and forced. Also they just love to throw in all these flashy graphics that just don't fit in college football. I just hate watching CFB games on Fox because of this. ...
