| Political Talk|| Shreveport Times write up on endorsement of Landrieu is hilarious. - Scoop on 10/28/14 at 7:14 pm|
Among the gems in this imbecilic write up:
[quote]Plus, their (Republicans) motive is not necessarily what's best for our state. Indeed, it positively reeks of being part of the nationwide Republican effort to alter the balance of power in the Senate and continue to build a congressional force t...
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone else have problems when ordering something from Amazon on Thursdays. - Scoop on 10/27/14 at 4:34 pm|
I've had this same problem a few times now and I've decided never to order anything from Amazon on Thursday again.
You get the Prime two day delivery date for Saturday but if UPS ends up being the shipper, they give your damn package to the Postal Service on Friday. After that, it goes down the ...
| More Sports Board|| I've heard this twice today and I never would have imagined it: - Scoop on 10/26/14 at 2:40 pm|
In the last eight years, no Super Bowl winner has won a play-off game the next season.
That's crazy trivia that might win a few beers at the bar. I wouldn't have imagined that was accurate in a million years....
| Tiger Rant|| Truth be told, Ole Miss was lucky to be in this game in the 4th. - Scoop on 10/25/14 at 11:57 pm|
This wasn't a young, identity seeking team that found a way to beat a top ranked team.
All things considered, Ole Miss was the team that was lucky to be in the mix late in the game. They could have easily been down 14-17 points in the 4th. ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Cold In July was a huge let down. - Scoop on 10/25/14 at 10:56 am|
This was on the top of my list since I saw the trailer months ago.
Set in the late 80s in the south with a solid cast and a great concept.
Nope, nope, nope.
First of all the trailer was a huge bait and switch. The trailer is all pulled from the first 40 minutes or so and hides most of the a...
| Movie/TV Board|| Anyone that recommended The Black List can hump a goat. - Scoop on 10/18/14 at 12:53 am|
I'm out of binges and became desperate. This board speaks highly of The Black List and I gave it a try and watched 5 eps waiting on it to not be crappy, formulaic, typical big network garbage.
Spader is awesome.
| Political Talk|| Question regarding the FBI director's threat against iOS and Android. - Scoop on 10/17/14 at 9:56 pm|
The 4th Amendment says:
[quote]The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,[a] against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated[/quote]
Apple and Google are clearly providing a means by which a person may be secure in their personal effec...
| Tech Board|| Does anyone else find YouTube a buffering nightmare these days? - Scoop on 10/12/14 at 10:17 pm|
In recent months, I cringe when I want to use YouTube because regardless of the device or computer I'm using or the speed that device or computer has at it's disposal, it is like going back to 2005.
I can be pulling a 40mb LTE connection on my phone and a YouTube video buffers every 10 seconds i...

| Political Talk|| The Secret Service faux pas is another failed diversity experiment. - Scoop on 9/30/14 at 7:27 pm|
The Secret Service director is a woman that was appointed as a direct result of the Secret Service prostitution scandal. She was given the position in order to "improve the image" of the Secret Service. It wasn't because she was the most competent or the most qualified. It was because Obama wanted t...
| Political Talk|| History buffs: Dan Carlin - Scoop on 9/27/14 at 3:01 pm|
I'm a huge history buff and Dan Carlin kind of blew my mind a little bit this week on Common Sense with a simple comparison with regards to the reliability of our sources for ancient history.
I'm a 19th and 20th century historical buff so not Earth shaking for me but regarding historical knowledg...
| Tech Board|| Opinions on Spotify Vs. Beats Music - Scoop on 9/18/14 at 7:06 pm|
I put this on the Music Board but not sure about their traffic, plus they probably only listen to vinyl. Figured it is OK for the Tech Board.
I've used Spotify since the day it rolled out in the US and I have no complaints at all. Love it.
However, I updated my Apple TV to see that a Beats ap...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Logically, we are screwed. - Scoop on 9/14/14 at 5:50 pm|
Their only job was to make sure Seattle came to the Dome in a play off meeting.
Giving away a road win against a division rival and then losing to a crap team does not get Seattle in the Dome in December.
Seattle would drop 60 on this D anyway....
| Movie/TV Board|| PCU is not available anywhere. - Scoop on 9/13/14 at 12:27 am|
Not on iTunes, Amazon, Youtube, Netflix, etc. Doesn't stream anywhere. Can't even pay for it.
It is a fairly popular movie with the 35-45 crowd.

I've been playing over a year. I'm good. Give me a half hour and I'll do a fresh build and get you anywhere. I've landed on every planet and every moon. I can build a rover and deliver it anywhere. Two rovers? I can do that.
I can't rendezvous. Every time I try I give up. I've watched Scott Manle...
| Movie/TV Board|| A Million Ways To Die in the West - Scoop on 9/5/14 at 9:20 pm|
I'm not sure what is going on. I am pretty picky with movies and generally, I'm pretty in line with critics rather than the audience.
I watched Neighbors last weekend which if I remember correctly, hovered around 90% on RT before settling at 71%. It was fine. A bit of a let down because it was pr...

In my younger days, I was a pretty decent basketball player and I played more than my share of pick up games. I noticed something through the years and I'd venture to guess anyone else that played a lot of pick up basketball knows this guy.
He thinks a lot of his game. He thinks he's pretty damn ...
