| O-T Lounge|| Let's talk drinking age - Methuselah on 8/29/14 at 10:29 pm|
It's been awhile now since the drinking age has changed from 18 to 21.
From what ya'll have seen - has it really resulted in a decrease in drinking in college age kids? Has it decreased drinking problems or drunk driving?
For what I can see it doesn't seem to be much different between kids to...
| Tiger Rant|| Hello, my name is Methuselah and I'm an LSU-aholic - Methuselah on 8/29/14 at 1:10 pm|
I haven't watch a live Tiger football game for about 8 months now. But tomorrow I think I'm gonna fall off the wagon big time.
I can't help it. I just love to watch them play....
| SEC Score Board|| Man, what's with the tiny fonts and weak color scheme on this board - Methuselah on 8/28/14 at 10:38 pm|
It's just not designed for us old guys whose eyes are not what they used to be I guess....
| Tiger Rant|| Saturday Down South has LSU going to the "TaxSlayer" Bowl? WTH is that? - Methuselah on 8/27/14 at 8:01 pm|
I'm guessing it is a bowl that picked up a name change. But it just sounds strange.
Then again, they also have "#1 Alabama v. #3 Oregon in one of the semi=finals of the playoffs. I think #1 matches up with #4 so I'm not sure how well researched that article is.
| Movie/TV Board|| The 2011 version of the Three Musketeers - what the hell am I watching? - Methuselah on 8/22/14 at 8:50 pm|
This has to the be the most bizarre version of this tale anyone has thought up.
- A blimp?
- A 17th century femme fatale doing ninja cat burglar shite in golden underwear?
- Modern looking invisible security maze revealed by blowing powder into the air.
- Oh and horrible acting pretty muc...
| Movie/TV Board|| Why didn't Molly Ringwald just say it was her birthday in 16 candles? - Methuselah on 8/21/14 at 9:38 pm|
I can understand at first not wanting to point it out. But after it became clear that no one was going to mention it she could have come up with some way to get the point across....
| Movie/TV Board|| Anybody here ever watched the movie Mickey with Harry Connick, Jr. - Methuselah on 8/19/14 at 7:58 pm|
I guess the Little League World Series being on reminded me of this movie.
It's not the best received movie but I thought it had some high parts. The part about drafting teams really is pretty close to what goes on in youth baseball drafts. And I thought Connick did a decent acting job.
| O-T Lounge|| Words and phrases for the same thing that are different in different places? - Methuselah on 8/16/14 at 7:11 am|
Thought about this when I walked outside this morning and saw a "mosquito hawk" and realized how in many (most?) places it is called a "dragon fly".
And of course the old "soft drink" "cold drink" "pop" thing is pretty well known.
What are some of your favorite phrases or words that are differ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Anybody watch A Night in Old Mexico with Robert Duval? - Methuselah on 8/6/14 at 12:06 pm|
I came across this on the Redbox site. Thinking about watching it. I'm a pretty big Duval fan and I like most of his stuff (I was kind of meh on the two cowboy movie with Costner and the guy from Wings as they seemed to be retreading old ground.
Any views on A Night in Old Mexico? Worth a watc...
| Movie/TV Board|| Marvel fans, help me identify this character - Methuselah on 7/29/14 at 10:32 pm|
The flying flaming character to the right of center towards the top of the poster. I can't figure it out and it's driving me crazy. It's not the torch and its not Firebird because they are shown. I don't think its Firestar because she usually doesn't have that much flame around her. I guess it c...
| Movie/TV Board|| What previous space action/comedy movies or shows have you enjoyed? - Methuselah on 7/29/14 at 12:21 pm|
With GoTG almost here I got to thinking about this fairly are genre. What similar movies or shows have you liked? Here's a couple that I think may or may not fit into this category:
[i]Galaxy Quest[/i] - This one was funny but did have enough space elements and enough action also.
| O-T Lounge|| Q for River Parish historians - the wooden pier like structure off I-10 W/B - Methuselah on 7/28/14 at 6:16 pm|
Does anybody know what the story is behind the decayed wooden pier like structure that is off to the right of I-10 westbound near the St. Charles/St. John line where it skirts the edge of the lake?
When I was younger I heard a vague story that there was a town or settlement in this area that was ...
| Movie/TV Board|| What's your favorite Bogey movie and why? - Methuselah on 7/27/14 at 2:53 pm|
I love to talk about superhero movies. But for a change of pace, what's your favorite Humprey Bogart movie? And why do you like it?
I think mine is The African Queen. It might not be as iconic as some of his other movies like Casablanca or The Maltese Falcon.
But I think I like it for exa...

Would Russia retaliate on behalf of the separatists? In what way? Or would they just voice displeasure?...

(I see OBUDan has also linked this in the Arsenal thread. But I figured it deserved it's own thread - if I'm wrong, please feel free to delte, mods).

There were several I loved but I think I'll have to go with:
| Movie/TV Board|| Is there a dead period between a film's theatrical run and the DVD/On Demand? - Methuselah on 7/18/14 at 3:13 pm|
Ok. Help a brother out here.
I always thought that once a film closed at the box office it kinda went straight to things like DVD and OnDemand.
But I had a hankering to watch Captain America The Winter Soilder this weekend. So I checked the Red Box site for my area - It's not there yet. I ch...

For anyone looking to improve the sport here in America in the long run, I think there are some things that could have an impact).

| Movie/TV Board|| When channel surfing does anybody go to the networks anymore? - Methuselah on 7/14/14 at 8:12 pm|
(I know, I know, channel surfing itself is probably pretty passe - but old habits die hard I guess).
But I realized that I hardly ever go to the networks while surfing. Usually I check out the sports channels, then maybe AMC, TNT, maybe HBO and maybe something like the old Military Channel (can'...
