Need pointers on smoking a duck - Jake88
I've smoked chicken before and it always comes out good. With the extra fat in a store bought duck, should I puncture the skin to allow the rendered fat to drain? If so how many holes and where? When I smoke chicken I usually seperate the skin from the breast leaving it attached along the sternum...

Opinions on A Place To Bury Strangers? - Jake88
I'm in my early forties so, yeah, I'm turning into an insular old guy. I never could understand how classic rock stations could stay afloat playing the same 1970's crap over and over, but I have taken no interest in any band that's formed after about 1998 except APTBS and listen my same ol' repeated...

Fidelity Sel Biotech just declared a dividend, buy more? - Jake88
I already own FBIOX and it's had a really nice run. Fidelity just declared a dividend of about $23/share. I'm automatically reinvesting that in the fund, but was wondering if now is a good time to buy more from cash in my money market in the 401k. The price per share dropped 8.66% because of the pay...

Who should take offense with Gruber's statements? - Jake88
Should it be the left who blindly believed all they were fed by the administration and were too burdened by "stupidity" to understand the shell game, or, the right who for quite some time recognized that whether the fees were labelled a tax and regardless of which end was taxed, it would result in i...

What are the limits on executive orders? - Jake88
Obama threatens and does use these to govern. He just said he will use executive orders to fix the immigration system this year. What are the limits on those orders? Are they time limited? I don't think so. Can Congress usurp them in some manner and slap him down? If an executive can govern like ...

Where to get drinks near the Dome? - Jake88
I usually arrive in my parking spot about a half hour before kickoff so I haven't wandered around the area in a few years. Where's a decent spot to get drinks before the game within a few blocks of the Dome? Thanks....

Best burger in B.R. for lunch on Saturday? - Jake88
I've been to Burgersmith and it was ok, nothing special. Would prefer something grilled over charcoal if possible and cheddar rather than American cheesefood. Will have a 11 year old with me who devours a good burger. I googled it on here and found nothing. Thanks. Eta: I haven't been to the n...

Why no Southampton thread? - Jake88
Are there no Southampton fans on this board? I realize their start might be a function of scheduling, but if they are rebuilding like others have informed me, doesn't that make for a bit of drama and intrigue?...

What did coaches see to make Jennings and Harris 1 and 2? - Jake88
I'll preface this with my not being a negatiger and my unwillingness to take a side if the JJ vs JL type debate pops up again. Jennings is our qb. I also don't listen to coaches' interviews because they say nothing. But, putting the usually valueless coach-speak aside, what did the coaches see in...

Question about soccer in the UK... - Jake88
How is it that a country as small as the UK has about 92 professional soccer teams (EPL and Football League), all of which, in theory, could make it to the EPL? Does almost every moderate sized city have a pro team? How do they afford to pay the bills drawing from such a small area? I looked up some...

Any undervalued sector mutual funds? - Jake88
I have an account with fidelity and have a few sector mutual funds like biotech and multimedia which have done well. With most sector based funds and S&P index funds seeming to be at or near all time highs, are there sectors that have lagged but are poised to make their move soon or are unjustly un...

some LSU fans are enjoying and talking shite about 'Bama's 1st half display? You people act as if sports aren't tailored to enjoy your competitors' lows. Some of you really need to pull the sticks out of your rectums and lighten up. It's fun, it's a game and smack talk is enjoyable whether you're ...

Is there a way to have an "offshore" retirement/investment acct? - Jake88
We hear about people with Cayman Island bank accounts but can you have a Fidelity-like/Vanguard-like offshore investment account that is out of reach of US govt hands? This is prompted by a concern that when I retire in a couple of decades IRAs and 401ks might be subject to raids by the govt to ...

How often do the liberal USSC justices disagree with each other on major issues? - Jake88
It appears to me that on the big, hot button issues, they vote in lock step with each other to satisfy the liberal political agenda. Meanwhile, the question becomes, "Do the conservatives stick together?" Unlike the Left, the conservatives seem to have 2 choices, satisfy the conservative political a...

Why the difference in NOLA's reaction to Hurricanes Andrew vs Georges? - Jake88
Why did so few evacuate NOLA metro for Hurricane Andrew, but six years later tens of thousands tried during the approach of Hurricane Georges? I was in my 20's during those times, living in the city, and evacuated for neither, but I can't recall what the differences were that prompted the different ...
