| O-T Lounge|| Guy attacked for filming the police. Cop stomps on camera phone. Video survives. - Asgard Device on 2/26/15 at 11:45 pm|
It's a given that they charged that guy with all kinds of shite and threw him in a cage, too. Dumbass cop thought stomping the phone would erase the video?
| O-T Lounge|| No charges filed against guys who shot holes in neighbor's home during target practice - Asgard Device on 2/24/15 at 7:59 pm|
This happened in a residential area and includes shooting out the window in a child's bedroom. :wha: Investigators said that since there were multiple people shooting guns that they couldn't tell who's bullets did what and thus they can't press charges. I wonder if others will use that defense in th...
| O-T Lounge|| another cop thread: What's the OT's opinion of this pimp slap? - Asgard Device on 2/23/15 at 8:57 pm|
I give it a 9/10.
Necessary function of government, or just somebody who gets a power trip out of slapping old homeless dudes?
I already know what the 25% of you who are cops think.. ...
| O-T Lounge|| Can somebody explain Texas liquor laws to me? - Asgard Device on 2/18/15 at 7:47 pm|
They are confusing. Liquor store was closed once by 9pm and they said it was because of state law. In some spots the bars had to close at midnight (again, state law was cited) but I recall a bar being open until 2am in Austin. So, do state laws not apply to certain municipalities?
Is it restrict...

Let's say you're a 41 y/o manager at a company and the higher ups tell you that you're getting a new employee. Sounds great but its a little suspicious because you aren't in need of help.
Interviews start last Tuesday. First guy in is a great candidate. He is a high performer for a competitor. I...
| O-T Lounge|| What's the deal with Austin? expensive, traffic, and yard chickens? - Asgard Device on 2/15/15 at 5:24 pm|
Went last month and the traffic made Baton Rouge's seem tame. People told me that it is common for their neighbors to have roosters. Wages seem kinda low compared to Houston and Chicago.
Worst part is that the home prices have reached California level prices unless you go way out in the burbs. T...

| Political Talk|| Would you support the state privatizing LSU football to the highest bidder? - Asgard Device on 2/14/15 at 5:44 pm|
There seems to be at least the perception of a huge disconnect between how much money gets pumped into football vs. how much is funneled back to the university which is what makes the football program possible.
Some argue that TAF is private and thus it doesn't matter. Others stipulate that TAF ...
| O-T Lounge|| Why are Facebook commenters so terribly stupid? - Asgard Device on 2/12/15 at 10:35 pm|
I can't help but LOL at some of these comments. The lack of shame is troublesome.
You'd think TD.com would be worse due to the anonymous nature of the posts, but it's actually quite a bit better by comparison. ...

Is something a right when government can't take it away? If government can take it away because you broke a law or because you didn't pay certain fees, then is it really a right? ...

| O-T Lounge|| If somebody gets hurt or dies while trying to avoid your speeding car - Asgard Device on 2/7/15 at 11:13 pm|
but you never actually hit them. What if the person who was almost struck was riding a bicycle and crossing the street at night without a light or helmet? They simply reacted to your car coming down the street and took a spill. Are you at all liable? Does it matter if you are going 10 mph over, 20 m...

The last two water parks I visited seemingly catered to people of the low socio-economic variety.
Is Schlitterbahn like that?

I noticed there's a few of you LSU alumni/Louisiana natives that are now living in the Phoenix or Tucson metros. I've heard that allergies can be a problem over there, particularly with the diversity of pollen (olive trees?) and the dust. I'm not sure about air quality.
Can you tell me if you no...

I ripped on people before for seemingly killing their crepe myrtles by chopping the top half off every year, but my crepe myrtles have gotten outta control.
I trimmed back the branches that were touching my house but it still doesn't look right.
If I really cut it back to the main branches, ...
