My wife and I are going to be in Paris for 4 days around Easter in a couple of weeks. I was hoping to get some ideas or specific recommendations on a restaurant or two. As well as general tips for non-french speaking Americans. We've been to Europe before a few times (Rome, Germany, England) just...

I've noticed that when I drink IPA beer, which I enjoy, that my expelled gas tends to be particularly offensive smelling. This is unfortunate for several reasons. Does anyone else notice this?
Btw...I apologize for the subject and am crying laughing in embarrassment but its a legit question ...

I've got about 3 dozen apples I picked in my yard yesterday. They're red, not green. Was thinking I would try to make an applie pie. I know you're supposed to use granny smith, but I ain't got those.

| Tiger Rant|| True or False: Over the season LSU evolved into a 1-dimensional team - Ye_Olde_Tiger on 1/11/12 at 3:38 pm|
Physically we've been able to beat teams down, scoring through defense and ST and creating turnovers for short yardage situations.
But, IMHO, we lost our creativity and IDENTITY along the way. We had a bad gameplan going in against Bama on 11/5 and we never really changed it up again in later ga...

I tried doing this a few weeks ago and it my dough never rose. I used fleishman's yeast, but something just didn't work right.
Anybody got any foolproof methods for this? Seems like it should be relatively easy.

Where did we leave them all? At that happy little picnic with everything being roses and jolly good times? What happened to 'Zero Cool'? Was he the one that got killed by the girl? And Debra is in bigtime suspecting mode of Dex being a serial killer? Is that about right?
| Tiger Rant|| 0:55 seconds left on the clock..... - Ye_Olde_Tiger on 9/12/11 at 10:41 am|
What would have happened last year? Confusion. Probably a FG attempt on third down because clock was going out and no timeouts left.
This year? 5 plays. 3 consecutive 1st downs and end it on a TD.
Way to go Tigers! Way to turn it around!

A particular subset that drives me bonkers is the Nazi occult, man those guys are everywhere.

They recently changed the interface here and I don't think I like it.

Here's a movie I was thinking about the other day, that I don't think has really been talked about much on here. So, I figured I would make a post about it. It's a dark comedy about Kevin Spacey being a truly awful boss in hollywood, and just humiliates his lackey throughout the movie. Of course,...

Is it the cell? Or are there smaller structures/components of biology that can be considered to be 'alive'? (By 'alive' I simply mean to not be inanimate, not intelligent, but I realize that is subjective also.) I'm assuming that something like a 'virus' is not 'alive' but I'm not quite sure that...

I know that you haven't been guaranteed any playing time in a very long time. I'm sure you must be extremely anxious to get out on the field and make things happen.
