| O-T Lounge|| Why is it a faux pas to inquire about cause of death? - PenguinNinja on 4/14/14 at 12:54 pm|
Every time someone dies (especially unexpectedly or young), I know I'm not the only person that wants to ask what happened to them? However, this is socially not proper, so everyone usually asks a trusted friend behind the scenes about the details.
Just wondering why this is a faux pas to ask?...
| Political Talk|| Did anyone REALLY believe the Cold War ended with the USSR? - PenguinNinja on 3/18/14 at 5:18 pm|
Let's face it: We've been in conflict with the Russians since the end of WWII, if not long before that. It's not going to end diplomatically...not unless we find a way to economically top an authoritarian regime with a metric frick ton of oil & gas upon which both Europe & China...

Could hold a referendum with international oversight by area an let each region/county/whatever vote to either go be part of Russia or stay with Ukraine an be part of EU?
Specifically, what's wrong with this scenario as an alternative to armed conflict, from the perspectives of Russia an the West...
| Political Talk|| IYO, what should the US do in response to the Russian actions in the Ukraine? - PenguinNinja on 3/2/14 at 11:22 am|
Forget what you think WILL happen given Obama being Putin's bitch (which I feel safe in saying is the overwhelming opinion on this board). What do you think the US SHOULD do, and why?
Explain why you believe your proposed approach is the best course of action for the US in the long term.
| O-T Lounge|| Houston Traffic advice - PenguinNinja on 2/27/14 at 8:46 pm|
I need to be in downtown Houston by 7:45 tomorrow morning. Given traffic on the Gulf Freeway around that time (not sure when rush hour gets really bad), at what time would I need to leave League City in order to make it on time? 6:30?...
| O-T Lounge|| Any guidance on rental car companies? - PenguinNinja on 2/17/14 at 1:14 pm|
I'm renting a car out of Houston (IAH) for a couple of weeks. Anyone got any recommendations for or against certain rental car companies?
I've rented from IAH several times before with AVIS for work, but I'm not sure if there are cheaper options that are just as good. I'm mainly concerned about...

Heard a ton of great stuff about this movie.
Everything I've heard and who I heard it from makes me think I should love it.
Scarlett Johansenn = fine
Watched it several years ago (4-6 years ago, maybe?) and thought it was boring.
Heard more good stuff. Watched it again tonight, t...

I fricking hate Hillary, FWIW. ...

This will not end well for us if it goes down. We're losing enough top-flight LA recruits to BAMA as it is, and this guy is one of the best recruiters in the nation with deep ties to LA.
And save me the N...
| O-T Lounge|| Pain in my lower abdomen, right side - PenguinNinja on 1/10/14 at 5:14 pm|
Right above my junk, but to the right.
How do I know if it's my appendix or just something muscular. It's only a slight discomfort pain for now, and it bothers me more when I'm lifting at the gym.
| O-T Lounge|| I have the dumbest question IN THE WORLD - PenguinNinja on 1/3/14 at 12:04 pm|
If my wife & I want to watch a movie that isn't on Netflix. We don't want to buy it, so presumably we can pay to stream it online somewhere (just this one individual movie).
Is there a website that does that (i.e. you pay to stream a single movie)?
As an aside, is there a website like Netflix...

I don't have time to dig through all the speculation threads. Why do you folks all of a sudden think that Speedy went from 90% LSU to an A&M lock?
Which "insider" do you guys have that's got you so confident in this prediction?
FTR, all the "insiders" said that Andre Debose was a silent and a...

Unfortunately, Hill gone.
I see no reason after yesterday to be positive about anyone staying that could go (e.g. Hill, Ferguson, A. Johnson, Landry, Beckham, etc.).
When is their last day to declare? Any reason those that know they're going don't say so immediately now that the bowl is over?...

I have a Samsung LCD TV that I bought about 5 years ago. The remote is broken (soaked in beer...don't ask), and I'm trying to find a replacement.
I can't seem to find the exact Samsung remote model anywhere online, but I'm finding a bunch of other models that look very similar.
If I buy one...

Does anyone have any legitimate sources to site that this is based on, or is this all based on the bull shite that is Twitter and some dumb rednecks thinking their drinking buddy is a legitimate source b/c they're obsessed with LA HS football?
Just curious...been out of the loop for a few days. ...

Why is it considered by some to be more evil to missile people without risking an American life than it is to do so with a jet without a pilot's life at risk? Isn't that the only difference?
What am I missing here?...

I just watched the first 2 for shits & giggles, and while I assume most of it is just straight up lies, it's certainly one of the more convincing arguments I've seen made along the lines of conspiracy theories, including:
