Anyone train using heart rate zones - KG6
Been using a heart rate monitor for the last month or so and am showing that although I have a pretty decent resting heart rate (~45 BPM), my active rate gets up there even on medium efforts. An easy run/bike ride is going to put me in "Zone 4". A run that I'm actually looking to improve is certai...

Spinoff: Right of way question - KG6
Leaving the office, there is an intersection where a two lane one way road must take a right onto two lanes of another one way road. So both the left and right lane can and must turn right. I get in the left lane since I need to be in the left lane after the turn. Most times, I'll have a car ...

Recommend a decent GPS watch - KG6
Looking to get a watch to better track my running. I almost pulled the trigger on a Garmin Forerunner 15 with heart rate monitor (~$150), but started seeing all the other options and just want to get the best bang for the buck. Don't need a $400 watch. But would like to track hear rate, distance,...

Anyone do triathlons? - KG6
Looking to maybe start to do as a hobby and to stay in shape. How much of your life does it take up (I don't mind working out, but I also like the freedom to skip a day here or there)? I used to run a bit and have been cycling lately. The swim training is going to kill me, but as with anything, I...

Is This Trade "Fair" - KG6
I'm horrible at judging what a fair trade is. And I realize it all depends on what each person has on their respective team, but I need a running back BADLY and I've got to try. Guy has expressed interest in Jimmy Graham. I proposed Andrew Luck, Jimmy Graham, Brandon Marshall For Demarc...

Car insurance claim question - KG6
I was rear ended last week. Other driver was at fault and ticketed by police. I called his insurance the next morning to get the claim started. They stated they would get with me to schedule claim once the insured accepted liability. I understood as police incident report isn't available yet. Ge...

Do these guys realize what they look like? - KG6
So I'm seeing this haircut make the mainstream more. There's a guy in the office that I work in sporting this haircut in a pretty professional environment filled with an older crowd. Not that there's anything wrong with it, it just stood out to me more today. It's apparently fashionable, but do th...

Smoking Spinoff Trifecta - KG6
Do you think smoking would be seen as trashy if people weren't addicted to it. Like in the sense of people who will have a few cigarettes socially when they drink. Or someone who might smoke a handful of cigarettes during a given week, but wasn't addicted to the point that they were defined as a "...

Homemade Smoker - KG6
Anyone ever made their own cheap smoker? I've seen it done on a cooking show using a hot plate, some aluminum foil, a cooling rack, and a cardboard box. I'm saving up for a Kamado grill and don't really want to buy a crappy pit in the mean time. I feel like smoking something over the weekend. Se...

Can you have an early mid life crisis? - KG6
I'm In about to turn 30 and had a few tonight. Thinking about Katrina and how I was a pledge at the time. With LSU football about to start, thinking about college life. I'd kill to go back 10 years. I love my wife and kid, but I never felt like I was "that old" until recently. I hope its not a mid ...

My inbox for work is getting full. I keep all pertinent emails related to projects I've worked on over the last 5 years and it has been a life saver several times.

My Grocery Store "idea" - KG6
I was wondering last night, as I realized we needed groceries, which store we should go to. When I'm in the mood, I'll go to the nicer store even though it's more expensive. I'm not fooling myself into thinking the products are better. Kind of like Whole Foods. I like to shop there every once and ...

The "tell everyone something interesting about yourself" bit - KG6
I'm at a work event (~150 people) and it's the second time I've been here recently. I know they are going to get everyone up to introduce themselves. Last time they requested we all day what we do, year experience, and an "interesting fact" about ourselves. Most people would say, I like to hunt, or...

you can pick two charters in Key West - KG6
What species and where you going? Backcountry? Flats? Open water? Wife's friends mentioned all going on a trip. I had no interest until the Keys were an option. If we do it, it would be next summer. If I'm going, I'm taking at least two days to make a fishing trip. I want to make the most of it....

Spinoff, where to have 1 year old's birthday party - KG6
In a similar boat regarding throwing a birthday party and knowing how much to expect to spend. Didn't want to hijack the other thread. Just moved to Houston 7 months ago, but all family is still in LA. My son's 1st b-day is in 2 months. We are going to have it in Louisiana since everyone is there. ...

Random gym question - KG6
I noticed the other day that several people walk up to the squat rack and remove the "spotter" bars even though they were well below how far down they would ever squat (I could understand if someone had them set way up high). I've also noticed many will do their squats outside of the rack. What's ...

Getting shirts tailored - KG6
Does anyone get their shirts tailored. I get my slacks, suits, etc done, but usually never mess with the shirt. I buy "fitted" or "tailored" dress and sport shirts and don't mind the fit on those. But I've got several other shirts that are nice, but I never wear because they are baggy. How much does...

Power surge damaged appliances - KG6
Anyone have any experience with a power surge or something similar damaging appliances? My gas stove works fine, but it appears the oven doesn't light. Also, the water heater seems like it's extremely hot. I think a surge may have fried the thermostats on both and is causing some issues. I lost ...
