Hell Week has officially been secured!!!
He would never boast of his achievements (as it should be), but he's in the last hours of Hell Week in BUD/s. Looks like he'll make it through First Phase of becoming a SEAL!!!
Super proud of him for not quitting and making it this far.
| O-T Lounge|| New car question- Diesel versus gas - CMBears1259 on 12/17/14 at 7:43 am|
I have to get a new car by the end of the month for work and have the choices narrowed down to another Honda Accord (ideally a 2014/15 demo) or 2014/15 VW Passat TDI SEL.
I would prefer to get a truck, but I drive a minimum of 1000 miles/month for work. A truck really isn't practical for what I ...

Anybody have experience with it? The Mrs. & I are looking to upgrade the thermostat and she keeps talking about this thing. I did a little (very little so far) research on it and she read some deets off of the website to me, but it almost sounds creepy to me how much shite it can supposedly learn a...

I got a pair of Costas today from Academy and the girl checking me out made sure to tell me that they had a strict return policy on their shades (all stickers must still be in place, return has to be w/in a certain amount of days, no scratches (obvious one there) and one or two other criteria). It'...
| O-T Lounge|| BR inflatable jumper business? - CMBears1259 on 4/20/14 at 9:52 pm|
Does the BR market have room for anymore businesses of this nature? I'm assuming probably not, but any OTer have inside info? Looks like a neighbor of mine may be in that business and it's been crossing my mind as if late. Seems like a low overhead business venture to start, any OTers having usef...
| O-T Lounge|| Home security systems/monitoring? - CMBears1259 on 3/27/14 at 1:26 am|
I know the average OTer has a 24hr private security detail to compliment their gated home that is surrounded by an alligator infested moat.
With that out of the way and for the less than average OTer that has to have a home security system to keep tPOS at bay, what is the best home security compa...

Caveat I- I've been riding in Spanish Town for over a decade and couldn't tell you much about the last time I saw it as a spectator. Hell, I couldn't tell you much about any of the times I've ridden in the damn thing.
Caveat II- I've only been to St. Patty parade a handful of times and never rea...

Need to get an app for the Iphone that will record in MP3 format to upload into work system. The mic on the phone works great and is more reliable than the recording app I have on my Dell tablet, but the pre-installed recorder sucks for interfacing with our Windows based system (yeah, I know...shou...

| O-T Lounge|| OT Car Mechanics: Check Engine Light/Sensors - CMBears1259 on 12/3/13 at 11:36 pm|
Check engine light came on yesterday (2007 Honda Accord V6). Had the code run on it and it looks like the problem is with air fuel ratio (AFR) sensor. My understanding is that there are 2 sensors and that both probably should be changed. Is this something that can be done with relative ease?

At the Marriott in NOLA for family reunion and ran into what appeared to be 3 umpires. Found out the group are retired umps in town for a clinic and one was Froemming (seemed as much of a dick IRL as on the field. He couldn't bring himself to acknowledge my recognition of him or tear himself away f...
