| O-T Lounge|| Texas as seen through the eyes of Houston - NameWithheld on 2/18/15 at 12:53 pm|
Credit to thrillist.com for this... I'd say this is about right except that the Gumbo reference needs to be a little further south, but that would interfere with the slam on Beaumont!
This map also perfectly identifies the "Houston-centric" mindset (culture???) that is pretty easy to spot... esp...

I really thought I had heard of everything Star Wars related that was "official" and that the Christmas Special (unfortunately) was about it. Supposedly this was a companion piece that never really reached audiences as intended.

| Food and Drink Board|| Attn: North Houston/Woodlands area people... AWESOME food truck find! - NameWithheld on 3/1/14 at 3:31 pm|
I have visited this area a couple times now, so I wanted to share now that I know it wasn't a one-hit wonder. On Rayford Rd. just past the railroad tracks heading east, there is a cluster of food trucks on a vacant lot. There is a cupcake truck, a Cajun food truck, snocone stand, etc.
| Fark Board|| Topical request... Need Obama and Putin farked over Newman and Kramer - NameWithheld on 3/1/14 at 2:11 pm|
There are animated gifs out there of this, but I think that would be a whole lot of work. Can anyone fark Obama and Putin's head over Newman and Kramer?
| O-T Lounge|| Aggies find hidden structure under Alcatraz (Wha???) - NameWithheld on 2/27/14 at 1:16 pm|
So evidently every university between College Station and San Francisco missed this, so Texas A&M is being credited with the find.
A team from Texas A&M University has gathered in the prison's recreation yard, where inmates would have spent as little as an hour a week away from the conf...

I think we all have had crappy roommates while younger and/or in college. However, this guy has us all beat:

Yup... another reality show. This show focuses on competitive arm wrestling and has a group from Louisiana/Baton Rouge called the Roughnecks. One of them is my cousin. Since I haven't watched the show or know any of the details, I'll pass on saying which one! :lol:
| O-T Lounge|| Broken English can be an art form... Best Skype interview ever! - NameWithheld on 2/6/14 at 6:00 pm|
I have to imagine this guy is legit. Even if this is staged, his enthusiasm is AWESOME! HR should definitely hire this guy... Even if only to do training videos.
Looks to have been posted to YouTube recently, so I am hoping that this isn't Germanic broken English.
| Music Board|| Anyone remember the band named Baton Rouge? - NameWithheld on 1/22/14 at 10:30 pm|
On the way home from work today I was flipping through XM and landed in the song "Walks Like A Woman" by the late 80's/early 90's band Baton Rouge. That got me to wondering if anyone on here had any personal knowledge/recollections of that band?
I did a little looking and found the video to that...

So you just enjoyed a nice meal, but the thought of adding 20% to your bill is out of the question? Be creative! What do you have in your pocket? Some candy? Spare Change? Meth??? This couple chose the latter...

| O-T Lounge|| New study says Facebook is NOT a good predictor of job performance. - NameWithheld on 1/7/14 at 9:38 am|
I feel like studies like this are inconclusive because they don't look at the details enough. Are we talking about jobs at McDonald's or executive positions? I am fairly certain that if I hire someone to be a manager and their facebook has them with a backwards flat-bill flashing wads of cash, it wo...
| O-T Lounge|| Ohio needs an image boost... Victoria's Secret to the rescue? - NameWithheld on 12/20/13 at 8:48 am|
So evidently Ohio's governor recognizes that Ohio has an image as a crime-ridden rust belt state that presents very little opportunity to offer anyone. He has tapped the head of Victoria's Secret, an Ohio native, to take this reimaging on. I'd say that is a mighty tall task!

For all you H-town fans of Pluckers, the day has finally arrived! Granted it's not like In-N-Out finally came to town or anything :lol: but it is pretty awesome for those of us that have missed having it from Austin or BR!!!!

I was informed that some Houston oil exec is having a party at L'auberge next week. Normally, this is not newsworthy, but in this particular instance, he is supposedly paying $100k for a pep band from the Golden Band from Tigerland to show up and play for 30 minutes.
