Heading to Leeville Fri-Sun, anyone fished there recently? - slackster
A group of buddies and I are heading out there this weekend. I haven't fished there since October, and any we absolutely slaughtered reds - my significant other and I caught 40 over three days! It has been quite a while since I've fished there in the spring, so I'm looking for any tips. The weat...

3 perfect brackets left in the Billion Dollar Challenge - Now none - slackster
From what I can tell on the unofficial standings, there are 3 perfect brackets left. There were 6 before Oklahoma State lost. Interestingly enough, two of the three remaining have NC Central over Iowa State, and one has NC Central, SFA, and Providence advancing. Also, two of them have Mercer in ...

To hell with the Billion Dollar Challenge - just hit on a 32-team parlay instead - slackster
I was bored this evening so I used an exponential regression on the true odds for parlay payouts to determine how many you would have to hit on a $1 bet to win at least a billion dollars. Using standard -110 odds, you would need to hit a 32-team parlay to win $1,640,768,042. A 31-team bet would [i]o...

Why are people excited about a tax refund? - slackster
I'm not sure where the MT stands on tax refunds, but I hate them. In fact, I get somewhat sick if I see that I am getting a refund, because that means my money spent a year or more with the IRS earning exactly NO money for me. Barring any drastic year-end changes, I believe you can accurately ju...

"Every business is a Ponzi/pyramid scheme" - Bitcoin/MLM spinoff - slackster
There are many definitions of a Ponzi or pyramid scheme, but there is a very simple solution to discover if someone is involved in a Ponzi scheme or a pyramid scheme - accuse them. If their argument centers on the idea that "every business is a pyramid scheme, you're boss makes money off of you and ...

Should the NFL adopt Bird rights instead of the Franchise tag? - slackster

Spinoff: if Bonds doesn't get busted, is he unanimously into the HOF? - slackster

Florida bringing in a very impressive class - slackster

Should you get 1.5 or 2 goals for making a long range soccer kick? - slackster
This is a spinoff from the "eliminate the 3 point line" thread. Hardly anyone agreed with the OP, so I was wondering if the same sentiments would hold true for soccer. Should a team get 1.5 goals or more for making a shot from beyond 25 yards? 25 yards would be an arc from the center of the goal lin...

MyGM on NBA 2K14 - loophole in contract negotiation problems (Xbox One and PS4) - slackster
SIAP, but I found a way to change the contract information when negotiating with players. If all you want to do is change the salary amount, you hold down the left or right directional pad while you're in the negotiation and it is your turn to either "offer the contract" or "walk away". Holding down...

If anything, yesterday should prove that LSU does not "recruit itself" - slackster
This board and the Rant have this preconceived notion that LSU can simply show up and pull in Top 10 recruiting classes because of the talent in LA. Of the top 15 committed prospects in LA, according to 247sports, 7 are going OOS. Those 7 are going to 5 different schools – Alabama, Texas A&M, Flori...

We signed a few studs last year at WR, and assuming we get Chi, Quinn, Upchurch, and Chark, I believe we will be just fine at that position. Again, I...

Cousins or Fitzpatrick - I've got Delanie Walker and I'm facing Garcon - slackster
Standard scoring, 6 points per passing TD. Fitzpatrick had a nice outing last time he played Jacksonville (31.5 points) and Walker had a TD (12.2 points). Cousins faces the Cowboys D which is atrocious, and I can effectively negate any points he gets for Garcon. I could really use some f...
