| Food and Drink Board|| FBD - Fat Heads comes to Portland - Jax-Tiger on 12/18/14 at 3:07 pm|
I somehow missed the fact that Fat Heads opened up a brewery here in Portland. Will have to check it out, soon. I'm excited.
FBD - Fat Head's Trail Head pale ale at The Beermongers.
| Political Talk|| Gas prices in Oregon - Jax-Tiger on 12/12/14 at 1:10 pm|
We Oregonians are too stupid to pump our own gas. We pay for it at the pump. This is how we "create jobs".
Prices in Oregon flucuate wildly - even from station to station. If you're visiting, you'd best pay attention to where the best prices are, or you could end up paying way to much at the ...
| Political Talk|| Political Correctness Run Amok - I can't use the word "bomb" - Jax-Tiger on 12/4/14 at 1:23 pm|
I was in a meeting today between me (IT) and some folks that we support on the business side and Imentioned that one of our Payroll interfaces had "bombed". One of the managers on the business team told me that I should use the word "failed", instead of "bombed".
No big deal, but really? Where ...

| Political Talk|| Was officer Wilson not indicted - Jax-Tiger on 11/25/14 at 4:44 pm|
because he is white? Or was he not indicted because the lack of evidence was so obvious that it overrode the intense pressure to indict him for something?
If I was on that GJ, it would have had to have been glaringly obvious that Officer Wilson did [b]NOTHING[/b] wrong for me to vote not to indi...
| Political Talk|| Immigration Questions - Jax-Tiger on 11/21/14 at 11:45 pm|
1.) Do you believe that we should seal our borders to stem the tide of immigrants coming up through Mexico? Why or why not?
2.) What should we do with the imigrants that are already here illegally (and those that are still coming across the border)?
I'm trying to figure out why this issue is ...

| O-T Lounge|| Should I dump Cable for Sattelite? - Jax-Tiger on 11/13/14 at 12:22 pm|
I'm paying nearly $200/month for Comcast cable. I get internet and Basic cable with HD package and two HD boxes. No premium entertainment packages. I've been a Comcast customer for many years. It seems like us long-time customers subsidize the new customers.
Any suggestions for getting this bi...
| Political Talk|| Giving the illegals green cards - Jax-Tiger on 11/7/14 at 9:31 pm|
If President Obama uses his executive authority to give millions of illegal aliens green cards, what will that happen to the job market in America? Currently, these people are picking apples and washing dishes - doing the low-paying, under-the-radar jobs that many Americans won't do. They were nev...

| O-T Lounge|| Experian - beware... - Jax-Tiger on 10/17/14 at 12:50 pm|
My son is in college, and he was about to buy a car. He decided to check his credit score, and thought it would be free. He went to Experian for a supposedly "free" credit check.
They mislead him by telling him that the credit check would be free, and then got him to put "just a dollar" on his...
| Food and Drink Board|| FBD - from ABV - Jax-Tiger on 10/16/14 at 2:20 pm|
Hey, I'm a poet,
And didn't think so...
FBDs are Notorious and Double Jack.
Notorious easily the better of the two for me. The flavor is off the charts. You catch a little alcohol burn, but at 12% ABV, its hardly noticeable.
| Food and Drink Board|| FBD - Notorious Edition - Jax-Tiger on 10/15/14 at 2:06 pm|
Will Cover. If you go to Pok Pok, stop by Apex Bar and try Notorious. May be Oregon's best IPA.

I know, I know, this not really asking for legal advice on the OT lounge. I am looking at attorneys right now, but I thought it would be an interesting topic of conversation.
Background: My mother-in-law went to the hospital two years ago for some routine testing for a medical problem she was h...
| Food and Drink Board|| Interesting Brewing method using Liquid Nitrogen - Jax-Tiger on 9/17/14 at 11:03 am|
I had a fresh hopped IPA from Breakside that used Simco Hops. I loved the beer. More research required, right?
I looked the beer up, and apparently, they are using some ground-breaking techniques to extract more flavor from the hops. Apparently, they freeze the fresh hops in liquid nitrogen an...
| Food and Drink Board|| Ghost in the Machine - Jax-Tiger on 9/16/14 at 12:27 pm|
I did a taste test with GitM, Pliny the Elder, and Boneyard's Hop Venom, yesterday at Belmont Station (a local taproom/bottleshop here in Portland). The participants were random bar customers that claimed to be hop heads, and I'm certain that at least two of them had some experience brewing IPAs. ...
