| SEC Rant|| Why are TAMU Fans so confident about beating LSU in Fooseball? - GFunk on 3/3/15 at 10:17 am|
The fact is that LSU has beaten TAMU 4 straight games, three of which had your rattlesnakeoil Salesman Savior at the helm with one of CFB's greatest individual talents there at the helm for two of them. Three of these victories came away from Tiger Stadium, and two of them came at Kyle Field.

This project is amazing. The only problem is that many countries-places like China, Turkey, and others in the Middle East-will not want unfettered access to the Inernet that Google envisions providing. So what's to stop them from either taking these things out of the sky, jamming, or just preventing...

I've got a wallet and I'm looking to switch things up. I'm a rabid fan of Saddleback Leather and I've heard folks swear by their wallets. But personally, I'd rather lower my profile, so to speak and slim down the size.
I don't have many cards that I have a need to carry other than some health in...

Do most of you have iPhone 4's or greater? Or perhaps an equivalent or greater non-Apple smartphone? If so, do you honestly find the mobile site preferable to the regular one? I have never found a use for using the mobile version, and some info is not available compared to what you see on the full s...

I ran and grabbed some Pepcid Complete and Zantac 1.5 billion or whatever. It won't go away. If I miss a dose of the Pepcid it's in my upper chest with a burning vengeance.

The deficit was $1.2bln to 1.4bln before oil prices impacted it. Now it's at $1.6bln.
Translation: On the high end, it's responsible for 25% of the deficit. On the low end it's responsible for an eighth, or 12.5%.
