| O-T Lounge|| Who here has asthma and what helps? - Tom288 on 5/21/13 at 4:08 pm|
I was diagnosed with exercise-induced asthma which was a bitch in high school but as I've gotten older the symptoms have expanded. Tightness of chest, shallow breathing, that constant urge to "catch" a full breath. Albuterol has never helped, the only thing that does is something like Bronkaid and P...

I keep my newer stuff in the safe, along with the older stuff so far, but I'd like to start displaying some of the historical pieces I've picked up over the years. Most are rifles from the Second World War. Anyone have any experience with a solid display piece for rifles (ideally a mount for 2 rif...

| O-T Lounge|| # of times you've been flashed while driving? - Tom288 on 4/17/13 at 10:46 am|
I've been flashed 4 times while driving and have always thought that has to be an unusually high amount of times for an individual, and these all occurred between 16 and 20-21. But who knows, maybe 4 times is low on the scale?
Oh, and that's 4 times by women, just to be clear. So if you have ex...

I recently installed an app for Chrome that monitors the lowest and highest prices of a product and I've been using it on wish list stuff on Amazon. Anyway, I've picked up quite a few things lately. For instance, I grabbed Band of Brothers in Blu-ray (I"m finally starting to really transition my c...

I need a clone just to catch up on the games I own and need to play. It's gotten to the point where it feels like a damn to-do list because I have so many games that I haven't played or beaten yet. Bioshock Infinite? Installed, but shite...I still have Hitman, AC:III, Crysis 3, and Tomb Raider ins...

Have your dog shite in your kitchen overnight. I guarantee the aroma will kill any appetite you wake up with. For those who really need to lose weight, and I haven't tried this but I'm sure it will work, just let the shite sit there. Let it linger. I'm sure you'll find that your cravings suddenly ...

I've been on an MAOI for close to 3 weeks now and hypotension is a very common side effect which often leads to lethargy and sleepiness. And for the past few weeks I've felt like someone's been slipping me roofies every day because I'm just exhausted. I've been going to bed around 7 or 8 pm and wa...

I'll start off by saying that I'm completely ignorant on the subject as I have pretty much no experience with them. But I've always wondered why anyone would carry one over a semi.

Just wondering if any of you, or how many, ever go through Gunbroker, or maybe a local store, just to see if there are any deals where you could buy the gun and then sell it for a profit? I was wondering if this is at all common or even feasible.
