Finally made the near two hour drive up to Ft. Collins last weekend to enjoy come Raising Cane's and New Belgium beer.
God, did I ever have the biggest hard-on walking into this place after not having Cane's for nearly a year. I've heard and seen the shrinkage of their chicken fingers down South....
| O-T Lounge|| Notable Incidents During the Pilgrimage to Mecca - 1MileTiger on 7/1/14 at 12:19 pm|
Sometimes the surging crowds, trekking from one station of the pilgrimage to the next, cause a stampede. Panic spreads, pilgrims jostle to avoid being trampled, and hundreds of deaths can occur as a result. The stoning of the devil ceremony is particularly crowded and dangerous. Some notable inciden...

It was a treat to get to see him. How often do you think these celebrity owners eat at their own establishments.
Fantastic steak BTW for anyone visiting Chicago soon....
| O-T Lounge|| Gas Appliances in the South? - 1MileTiger on 6/3/14 at 3:27 pm|
I feel like gas appliances (ovens/dryers/etc.) aren't very common in the South. Is there a reason most homes don't have gas lines, or is this a changing statistic?...
| O-T Lounge|| UH-60 Blackhawk Landed at ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in S. Denver - 1MileTiger on 5/21/14 at 4:25 pm|
I was watching a Blackhawk come in from the mountains this morning and as he got closer to my office, he banked hard and did a 270 degree turn and briskly landed. It looked like he went down on the interstate in a large cloud of dust, so I hopped in the car and drove over to see what the ordeal was,...
| O-T Lounge|| Water Wheel - Removes litter from river using currents - 1MileTiger on 5/19/14 at 9:36 pm|
This is a much smaller waterway than the Mississippi River, but could something similar be implemented somewhere along the river mouth?
You obviously can't block the river due to freighter traffic, but can you divert the current slowly to one point while allowing boats to pass?
| O-T Lounge|| Tipping During Travel - 1MileTiger on 5/15/14 at 4:23 pm|
Just got back from a business trip, and I was really curious how people handle tipping the bellmen/cabs/etc.
Day starts with taking a parking shuttle to the airport. Tip the gent $1 per bag.
Some people do curb-side check-in, tip the gent $1 per bag.
Get to your destination and tip the ta...
| Tiger Rant|| Chances of going to Omaha? - 1MileTiger on 5/2/14 at 2:24 pm|
I purchased non-refundable hotel for Council Bluffs for a rock festival, but couldn't get tickets to the show.
I can change the dates of my stay, so I figured I'd go watch the Tigers if they make it to the tournament. At this point, are we pretty much guaranteed a trip, or should I just lose the ...
| O-T Lounge|| Buying tickets from Craigslist - 1MileTiger on 4/30/14 at 1:04 pm|
There's a big metal festival in Ohama next month that sold out, and there are some tickets available on Craigslist.
Living in Denver, I can't do an in person exchange, so what would be the best way to handle this? I am skeptical of the print at home tickets, but it seems like 80-90% of people hav...

Living outside of the conference region, I was looking for reliable ways to follow LSU this upcoming season without forking over the money for cable packages. I currently have access to ESPN3, but what else is recommended to catch most of the games?...

| O-T Lounge|| Omaha Hotels - Other Things To Do? - 1MileTiger on 3/27/14 at 3:27 pm|
We are traveling to Council Bluffs for a rock festival in a couple of months. The show is in Council Bluffs, so I was looking for hotels and decided on the Country Inn & Suites. It's the closest to the venue without being run-down.
The show and hotel is Friday night, is there anything worth check...

We are heading to the Riviera Maya in October, and wanted to do an excursion this time around.
We were looking at Xel-ha and XCaret which are owned by the same company. Does anyone have any experiences with these places? We were looking to do a full day at either, as we don't much care about Maya...

We sub-leased an office from DMX, and they left behind a huge stack of their DMX ProFusion X media players. I believe these are used in businesses that play music.
I was going to trash them, but saw several of them listed on eBay ranging from $20-100. I have well over 20, and didn't know if these...

So I am still playing my 360, but I visited my brother for the weekend who got an Xbone. He has COD:Ghosts, but I convinced him to go to the store and get Forza 5.
When looking at the selection of Xbone games, I was appalled to see that the only games that were worth a damn were COD:Ghosts, BF4,...

Just a heads up that there is a United flight between Denver and Houston daily that flies on the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
Didn't realize this until after booking my flight...so I'm making sure you don't make the same mistake by not getting the chance to fly on it!...
| SEC Rant|| Why are ranters surprised at LSU fans being here in droves? - 1MileTiger on 1/2/14 at 11:33 pm|
I never understood why it is so shocking that the SECRant is always full of LSU fans.
It is based off of an LSU message board and all.
That being said, are we really happy that Bama lost to Stoops, the SEC bashing frontrunner?...

I've had some sudden issues with my laptop's touchpad today. The movement starts off choppy, then becomes pretty unresponsive as the minutes pass after turning the laptop on. A USB mouse works just fine, so I've narrowed down the issue to the touchpad itself.
Do these typically go bad after sever...

Amazon is the giant of the internet. We all love them. So, why aren't they receiving the same backlash that Wal-Mart did?
I work in the eCommerce space, and it's frustrating to compete with Amazon, just as it was frustrating for the smaller guys to compete with Wal-Mart. I understand Amazon has g...

I made a post a few days ago about how buggy and unplayable BF4 was. I uninstalled the updates per recommendation from EA, and re-installed them.
This didn't do much to quell the issues, however, I did find out that through the Marketplace, there is a Multiplayer Update 4 that is not a required ...
