| O-T Lounge|| What setting do you keep your Sonicare toothbrush on? - Hammertime on 7/29/14 at 12:16 pm|
I've had the thing for 2 or 3 years, and the clean setting just feels like it takes way too long. Been on refresh since the first month. I had two wisdom teeth taken out and don't need all of that brushing now
I haven't ever used any of the other settings because they just seem useless. It is a ...
| Outdoor Board|| Do you have to practice pulling back your bow? - Hammertime on 7/28/14 at 2:46 pm|
I've always been amazed at how many guys just can't draw a bow back. I was doing it at 15 while my dad's buddies couldn't do it at 45. I still have friends that work out all of the time who can't pull a bow back.
Do you guys need to practice, or is it just a natural motion? ...
| O-T Lounge|| How stupid are the owners/managers at car dealerships? - Hammertime on 7/26/14 at 2:28 pm|
Twice this week I went to go look at different trucks only to find out that the owner of the dealership took them to a meeting or out of town on vacation. Come to find out, they used them as everyday vehicles. I mean, if you're gonna have a dealership and cars for sale, at least have the damn things...
| O-T Lounge|| I have officially lost all interest in Dynamics - Hammertime on 7/24/14 at 10:10 am|
I liked it for the first half of the semester, but the teacher just makes it boring as hell and teaches directly from the book. Probably doesn't help that the class is 3 hours long either. Made a B on the first test and a D on the second, both un-curved. Doesn't look like this one will go so well.
| O-T Lounge|| Good jewelry shop in New Orleans/Metairie to bring Rolex - Hammertime on 7/23/14 at 4:23 pm|
My clasp needs to be tightened, face polished, and I need a tune-up on my Datejust. Are there any places that'll do good work and not rob me blind around Metairie or New Orleans? I know they have to be certified, but don't know how to find out who is without calling every jewelry shop.
I am expe...

And where would you live if you had to move to one single place out of state for the next 10 years?
And now Metairie
Only other place I'd consider living would ...
| O-T Lounge|| Do you ever find yourself amazed with today's technology? - Hammertime on 7/21/14 at 12:19 pm|
I turned 30 a month ago, so I grew up during the developmental stages of everything, but as I was driving yesterday, wifi tethering my phone to a touch-screen laptop, looking at traffic in another city, and I was thinking,"Damn, this is crazy where we are now"...
| Outdoor Board|| Do you enjoy watching hunting shows? - Hammertime on 7/15/14 at 8:20 am|
Fishing shows are cool because they do the same exact things that I could. I woke up this morning to a dude deer hunting on a pristine farm with a guide right next to him. After that, a guy was in Africa hunting antelopes, and now they are hunting a cape buffalo.
I just think this shite is ridicu...
| Outdoor Board|| Anyone replaced all steering/suspension joints on a GM truck? - Hammertime on 7/14/14 at 10:29 pm|
Test drove a 04 2500 4wd with a 6.0/4L80E in it today. Motor and tranny were absolutely flawless. Ran just as good as a brand new truck and pulled hard. Truck was straight as a carbon arrow. All panels aligned perfectly, etc. Only had one problem though(well I guess a bunch).
All of the joints w...
| Outdoor Board|| Don't leave your GD blower out in the rain - Hammertime on 6/30/14 at 5:13 pm|
My Stihl blower is from 2000, and hasn't given me a lick of trouble. Wasn't completely under the carport this weekend and it rained. Well, I get done cutting a yard today and the bastard wouldn't even come close to starting.
So I go back to the house, and spend a damn hour troubleshooting it. Wa...
| O-T Lounge|| Why do hipsters want to act poor? - Hammertime on 6/22/14 at 6:14 pm|
I saw some the other day walking through a shitty neighborhood looking at a map like they were actually reading it, but they both had their iPhones in their hands. Is it northern white guilt? Is it cool to be poor now? Is it cool to act/look trashy?
I understand that they wanna act poor, but it i...
| O-T Lounge|| Is the guy at the 4-way by Seigen Lowe's actually working for Wounded Warriors? - Hammertime on 6/21/14 at 11:43 am|
Just drove by and had to stop at the 4-way in the middle of the shopping center. There is an older guy out there saluting every car and handing out those little plastic American flags. He has two small Wounded Warrior signs, but his uniform looks like he got it at the Army Surplus.
I don't mind ...
| O-T Lounge|| How do poor people afford solar power? - Hammertime on 6/20/14 at 5:41 pm|
I work in some pretty poor neighborhoods around the New Orleans metro area, and probably 20% of the houses have solar panels on the roof. It's weird as frick and I can't figure it out
My parents got and estimate for solar panels on their house for $40k. I know people in the shitty hoods don't hav...
| O-T Lounge|| Famous Shoe Repair Metairie Rd - Hammertime on 6/19/14 at 7:09 pm|
Any of you beasts ever had shoe work done here? I have some work boots that need a new leather mid-sole and I wanna put a new Vibram 100 on the bottom.
Looking online, it seems like they only do fancy shoes. And no, I'm not buying new ones. These have a thousand plus miles on them and are still ...
| O-T Lounge|| Do you think many Americans understand how bad the rest of the world actually is - Hammertime on 6/15/14 at 9:21 pm|
Just talking to my woman about it because she saw a couple of seconds of that ISIS video. She thought it was crazy that some people can do those things, and I said it was normal protocol for a good chunk of the world. I think that we are a unique society compared to how the rest of the world(except ...
| Outdoor Board|| New boots for me - Hammertime on 6/14/14 at 6:14 pm|
Well, I ruined two pairs of Red Wings within a month a year ago, and now the Justins that I bought right after that just had the leather separate from the sole on both boots. The Justin's I had were comfortable as all hell, but I cannot stand having the boot rip apart before the sole wears down. It ...

I want to start carrying my PPQ around erryday while cutting grass, and have no idea where to start. Hook it through my belt or clip on? Materials? I am basically a blank slate
I have a Serpa-esque holster, but for where I go, I feel like it would be antagonizing the indigenous population to wear...

I have a 4x8 trailer that I use to pull my mower and stuff around every day on the wonderfully maintained streets of New Orleans, and it rides wough as hell. I have had 3500lbs in the thing and it still bounced like a wild man. Has even bounced so much that the grab handle to keep my mower running f...
| O-T Lounge|| Do I have athlete's feet? - Hammertime on 6/7/14 at 9:20 am|
I have been having random rashes show up on the tops of both feet lately. They are red, dry, and raised a little bit like an allergic reaction, but don't itch. I thought athlete's foot was something in between your toes, so what gives?
I have walked two entire days in the past month after my boot...
| Tech Board|| Tango vs Skype - Hammertime on 6/3/14 at 11:06 am|
My younger sister is in Europe for a month on her senior trip, and since calling overseas is $1/min, I looked suggested to my parents either Tango or Skype. Tango is pretty damn easy to use, but does get a little choppy when one of the parties moves around a lot. Haven't tried Skype on mobile. My si...

Man, it was pretty intense. I did the intro and tactical level 1 classes. I learned a large amount of info, and now have about 15 different exercises to practice, and am 650 rounds lighter :lol:
The instructors' credentials were impressive to say the least. A few members of SWAT, most who are in...

Going to this training class tomorrow, and they require 3 mags and a mag holder. I have both, but the mag holder is set up for Glock mags, which are more fat and deep, and not PPQ mags. That causes my PPQ mags to flop around a little bit to the point where I can shake them out. We are gonna be runni...

My woman's laptop is basically useless as a laptop now. Battery and charging port are both fricked, and it randomly goes to BSOD when it is taken off of the charger for any amount of time. Pointless for her to bring it to school, but she now has it plugged in to her TV via HDMI, and uses a wireless k...

Basically I've got an idea that would be similar to a product out on the market, but different enough to sell it as something unique. Haven't done much research on this, and still working on finishing it up. It is something that could be sold in one or two units to possibly hundreds of thousands of ...

Seigen to the split going west is bumper to bumper. Not steady rolling, but rolling 50yds and sitting still, rolling 60yds and still. You get the point
Haven't been to BR in 3 weeks, and it still fricking sucks.

Had a sinus infection develop over the weekend, and with exams this week, I wanted to jump on it before it got any worse. Went to the walk-in clinic down the street, and it was 10x better than going to my regular doctor. I won't be seeing him anymore unless I need tests done or have a serious proble...

My dog gets infections in his ears if I don't clean them well at least every two weeks. Working through one right now, and the doc gave me Epi-Otic again. Have to clean once every day, and have been doing it since last Friday. Yeah, they are cleaner, but I...

I have used up 3/5 tries so far, and keep coming up with the same answer, except for one of the times. I tried typing it in differently, and did not come up with another answer. I know 972pi/5 is absurd, but that is what I am getting from the final integral of (4/5pi)(r^5) from 0 to 3

Been waiting for almost 6 months now. Turned it in the middle of November IIRC. I have one DWI actually on my record, but from 2000, and it has been expunged for a while. I called in February, and they said the Sgt was backed up 200 applications. Said the same thing in march when I called, and the e...
