| O-T Lounge|| Offered a job but don't want to burn bridges with current boss - SUB on 8/25/14 at 4:00 pm|
I was offered a good job by another company. I'm currently not super happy with my current job, but wouldn't say I'm unhappy either. This new job seems to be a better fit for me and my family, and has better pay (8%) and better benefits.
My dilemma is that there are 3 people on my team right ...

This is a guide to help you accurately define the extent of trashy an individual is likely to be based on how they choose to accessorize their heads.
Tier 5 (Not Trashy) - No hat or fitted baseball cap that isn't a flat bill.
Tier 8 - Adjustable / one size fits all cap. Come on, you can aff...
| Tech Board|| AT&T Data Usage - How to view usage by app or other details? - SUB on 8/4/14 at 3:33 pm|
Does anyone know how to view details of data usage for AT&T? I was on the unlimited plan for a long time and looked at my historical average data use and it made sense to switch to a 5GB plan, because I rarely went over 4GB. As soon as I switched, my data usage basically doubled. It makes no sens...

My wife went to a bridal shower that one of the friend's brides put on. The friend turned the party into a pitch for her new "business" and asked people to buy stuff off of the registry for her new business and to join her business. This business is clearly a Multi-Level Marketing Scheme like Arbo...

Every Thursday, there's a segment on the local Austin news where people call in and ask a local vet questions. The callers ask some pretty dumb questions sometimes and sometimes the vet just has some strange answers.
Highlights from this video:

| Food and Drink Board|| Authentic Hummus Recipe? Restaurant Quality - SUB on 7/21/14 at 9:40 am|
I'd like to be able to make hummus as good as you can get it at a place like Albasha, Zorba's, Roman's, etc. I've seen some threads on here with recipes. They all seem to be similar: Can of chick peas, olive oil, garlic, salt, tahini...and can mix it up by adding parsley or other items.
So I ma...

I was thinking about just making my own instead of dishing out $50 for some cheap piece of plastic / rubber.
What does the OT think of this?
| Food and Drink Board|| Boiled Crawfish - Vietnamese Style - SUB on 7/16/14 at 10:01 am|
Has anyone ever had this? I have a Vietnamese friend who's filled me in on the traditional Vietnamese way of boiling / seasoning crawfish. Basically, you cook your crawfish with a little bit of crab boil and toss it in a garlic butter sauce (with other spices).
Honestly, it seems pretty stupi...
| Money Talk|| OT Homebuyers - Calculate Mortgage Payment for New House After Sale of Old One? - SUB on 6/20/14 at 2:52 pm|
Let's say I bought a house a few years ago for X amount of dollars. My property value has gone up $100K since then. If I'm interested in moving to a new home, how can I figure out what my mortgage payment would be, assuming that I would sell my old home for $100K more than what we bought it for?
| O-T Lounge|| Joint Bachelor / Bachelorette Party...Does this make the groom a beta? - SUB on 6/18/14 at 12:47 pm|
I'm invited to a joint bachelor / bachelorette party. This sounds incredibly lame. The whole point of these things is to do stuff without the future spouse. It just seems like something a beta would allow his bride to plan.
What says the OT?...

This has got to be the lamest thing I've ever seen. Every game's starting lineup shows a short clip of each player folding their arms.
Sort of like this, but 1 at a time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OD3cuIcAv_0...

This year is our chance to set the record straight for the goal that was stolen from us on a handball. We played an amazing game against one of the best teams in the world and had a chance to not lose. I'm still bitter about the no call on the handball.

I have been doing a two pot system for my crawfish boils to cut down on wait time. I have a jet burner, but nothing special. I'd like to get one of the high performance burners that can get it boiling in minutes (any recommendations?), but that'll be for the next boil. Let's just say it probably ...
