| O-T Lounge|| Is the "upper class" in America getting soft? - Methuselah on 9/30/14 at 12:59 pm|
All the talk of the soft "corporate fans" in Tiger Stadium got me thinking of this concept in a more general way.
(For purposes of this discussion, let's define upper class as the top 5%, with income somewhere north of $150,000.00).
Seems like throughout a lot of history, the upper class (or t...
| Movie/TV Board|| Name some of your favorite old school (maybe even Sat. morning old) cartoons. - Methuselah on 9/29/14 at 8:09 pm|
And what made them great in your eyes.
Some that I can remember:
- The old Star Trek cartoons with the weird guy with the red head instead of one of the regular characters (Sulu or Checkov I think).
- The original Johnny Quest. That was some good stuff for back then.
- Dungeons and D...

You could see from before the first kickoff the guy was really into in and fired up. Looks like a leader in the making....
| Tiger Rant|| I wuz there when Fornette & Harris really got their careers as Tigers started! - Methuselah on 9/27/14 at 11:32 pm|
Don't make a whole lot of games every season and this one was obviously not a marquee match-up. But I'm thinking I'll be able to look back on this one in the future and say I was in Tiger Stadium when Mr. Fornette and Mr. Harris turned on the switch. :bow: :geauxtigers: :bow:...
| Tiger Rant|| Anybody else really enjoying The Rant this week? - Methuselah on 9/23/14 at 4:58 pm|
Hate to see my Tigers take in on the chin but it's at least a small solace following the lunacy on The Rant....

Watched part of it yesterday and watching it again this morning.
Very well made movie....
| SEC Rant|| So, is Dan Mullen now a hot commodity in coaching searches? - Methuselah on 9/21/14 at 8:48 am|
Is he the real deal or more like the Auburn coach who rode Cam Newton?
M. State is a respectable program so there are not an unlimited number of opportunities for an upward move. But history tells us they have not been a consistent top tier team. So there are so opportunities for him to upgrade...
| O-T Lounge|| Relate your experience in your last ever high school game in any sport - Methuselah on 9/19/14 at 4:32 pm|
What was it like for you when that final whistle sounded on the last game? Did you linger on the field? Cry a bit with teammates? Take pictures with family? Take a memento - a blade of grass from the field or a plastic field turf pellets or a name tag from the locker room?
- Subject says high...
| Tiger Rant|| Last offensive play prediction - Methuselah on 9/19/14 at 10:18 am|
Since we always see first play prediction threads, let's do a last play thread. Here's mine:
Harris takes a knee with the Tigers up by 12. Clock runs out. The two yard loss on the play does bring the Tiger QB running yards total for the game down to 99 though....
| Tiger Rant|| Does Saturday Down South hate LSU? :) - Methuselah on 9/17/14 at 3:52 pm|
I'm not one that usually buys into all the "oh, poor LSU, such and such never gives them a fair shake"
But somehow I started getting the Saturday Down South Facebook posts (I must've "liked" them once upon a time).
But now it's getting kind of aggravating. Mostly because they dump way to much...
| O-T Lounge|| OT nostalgia thread - what do you remember growing up that's not common anymore? - Methuselah on 9/16/14 at 9:21 pm|
Some I can think of:
- Sets of Encyclopedia Britanica or World Book in peoples houses.
- Banana seats on bicycles.
- Playing tackle games like British Bulldog and tackle football at recess at school.
- Getting tests and assignments at at school with purple ink from a mimeograph machin...
| Tiger Rant|| Rant nostalgia thread - what do you remember from your early days as a Tiger fan - Methuselah on 9/16/14 at 9:07 pm|
I remember before the days of widespread t.v. coverage, listening on the radio on Saturday nights. Wherever we were, the radio was on - riding in the old station wagon with my parents on the way back from a Saturday afternoon/evening weddings,or visiting friends, on camping trips, at home. And the...

SIAP. Didn't see any threads on it.

One or two in there that might rival the famous Lootie pic that spawned a thousand memes. (#27 is one I think)....
| O-T Lounge|| Why do entities that have well designed web sites feel the need to change? - Methuselah on 9/10/14 at 5:04 pm|
Talking specifically WWLTV here. They had a well designed, easy to navigate site. In particular their I always found that their weather radar section was excellent and it was my go to place to check for rain anywhere in the state and nearby states.
Now the overall site just seems to be a hot me...

Walked into the kitchen for lunch and turned on the kitchen counter tv. It was on a talk show of Queen Latifah and she is interviewing MM.
I thought it was interesting when she asked him about changing the types of roles he took. He said he wanted to do different roles and talked to his wife an...
| O-T Lounge|| What's your favorite board (or similar) game you've ever played? - Methuselah on 9/8/14 at 8:58 pm|
Board games are kinda becoming a thing of the past with all the electronic stuff.
But the other night my kids each had some friends over and decided to break out the old Taboo game. That was actually a fun evening. So I guess that would be mine among the somewhat more recent games.
For an o...

Admittedly it's mostly the tunes that I like. But I've found the story itself is a nice tight little plot and the acting good (though not exceptional of course). ...

I've never been huge reader of King's stuff but I loved [i]The Stand[/i] (both the book and the mini series).
My questions are - what exactly is the character? In [i]The Stand[/i] he appears to be some type of lower or mid level demon. But Wikipedia says he's a sorcerer.
So, what is the dude...
| Movie/TV Board|| Did "The Matrix" franchise really start going down at the end of the first movie - Methuselah on 9/4/14 at 10:02 pm|
Just watched the first one again. And I think they kind of started sliding at the very end of #1. I mean, revived with a kiss is pretty cliche'. And Neo diving into Agent Smith really didn't seem to make much sense or be a significant development.
Now, the Superman type flight at the very end ...
