| SEC Rant|| What Does Tennessee Need to Return to Glory? - Pettifogger on 8/5/14 at 8:46 am|
Other than a time machine.
Personally, I think Butch has the program headed slowly but surely in the right direction. But being competitive and being old school Tennessee are different.
The one thing I notice in being in Tennessee and at games is an apparent drop off in youth being excited ab...

Worst election fight ever?
| O-T Lounge|| Southern Marsh - Quality question - Pettifogger on 6/23/14 at 9:43 am|
I'm not usually one for Southern __________ stuff, but I have a good opportunity to pick up several things from Southern Marsh but don't know anything about the quality.
Mainly interested in the synthetic fishing pocket t's and the synthetic polos. Can anyone comment on that stuff or just the qu...
| O-T Lounge|| Plausible Bin Laden or 9/11 Conspiracies or Secrets - Pettifogger on 5/20/14 at 9:13 am|
Does anyone have less-crazy secrets/conspiracies they buy into?
I read a novel a few years ago, it may have been by former spook Robert Baer, where the secret involved a photo of CIA officials with Bin Laden (obviously implicating they worked together directly). That is the type of thing I can ...
| O-T Lounge|| Krav Maga - Your Experiences - Pettifogger on 5/9/14 at 8:36 am|
I don't take Krav classes, but I'm slightly interested in hearing about it.
It strikes me as a good combo of fitness and practical skills, but the folks I've seen who are in the programs aren't cult-like and don't appear to wear dragon t-shirts, which surprised me.
Anyone have any recreational...
| Political Talk|| Anyone else interested in this Gerry Adams (Sinn Fein/IRA) story? - Pettifogger on 5/1/14 at 8:12 am|
For those who don't know, long time Sinn Fein leader and politician Gerry Adams was arrested for a 1972 IRA-connected kidnapping and murder.
Although my family is ulster, I'm still fascinated with the republican movement and the troubles. Followed it pretty heavily since I was a kid, but not muc...
| O-T Lounge|| What to do - Weekend in San Francisco - Pettifogger on 3/29/14 at 4:11 pm|
"Dudes." - Everyone on the OT
That aside, going for a few days in late may, GF has never been. Already doing some touristy stuff and going to catch a game at AT&T. Not tons of time, but anything to consider would be appreciated.
| SEC Rant|| Least Objective SEC Fanbase - Pettifogger on 3/3/14 at 12:39 pm|
Which fan base, as represented here, exhibits the least ability to objectively discuss CFB?
My nomination: UGA. While SCAR is good at coming up with creative ways to show relevance (usually through creative statistical measures, and Alabama thinks they reign above all, I don't know that shows a...
| More Sports Board|| Anyone play Ping G25s-JPX EZ -JPX EZ Forged? - Pettifogger on 2/20/14 at 10:13 am|
Would appreciate input on these irons.
I'm still bagging Titleist 755s, and I could obviously use an update and I think any of these sets would add forgiveness. With my game I don't think the JPX EZ is beneath me, but I am used to playing a forged GI/players hybrid so I figured I'd include those...
| Music Board|| Water Liars - Any fans? - Pettifogger on 2/13/14 at 11:05 am|
Interesting band/duo. Usually I pretty categorically like/dislike something, but I'm really mixed on them. Love some, find some of it totally uninteresting. ...
| O-T Lounge|| Mountain Biking Beginner Question - Pettifogger on 1/31/14 at 1:37 pm|
I like to hike and fish, but I need a hobby with a little more to it. Could also use some extra exercise.
Any suggestions for getting started? Mostly interested in local trail riding and exercise, probably not for a commute or anything too aggressive (at least in near term). Any suggestions fo...
| Music Board|| Goodnight Texas and/or Tyler Lyle - Pettifogger on 12/12/13 at 12:06 pm|
Any fans of either?
Just found this Goodnight Texas band, good stuff for those who like acoustic/folk type stuff.
Tyler Lyle just released about 5 new tracks, I like almost everything he does....
| O-T Lounge|| Grill Question - Pettifogger on 8/4/13 at 11:02 am|
Would love to get a BGE, but just not sensible right now (renting small house and condo in major city).
What is my best all around option? Standard Weber?
I like the utility of gas, but I don't want to spend money on a cheap one we'll junk up and not want to keep (and don't want to throw do...
| Music Board|| The Oh Hellos - Pettifogger on 6/27/13 at 8:55 pm|
Anyone else listening to this duo? New album out, and it is in my genre (indie/folk/americana). Probably a blend of Mumford, Of Monsters and Men and Civil Wars. Getting good press.
Be warned though, some Christian undertones, so if that'll annoy you I'd avoid them. ...
| Music Board|| Typhoon - Pettifogger on 5/15/13 at 7:37 pm|
Anyone a fan? New album in August.
New single "Dreams of Cannibalism" is good stuff. Started slow, but the last 2 minutes are classic Typhoon....
| Music Board|| New Dawes - Pettifogger on 4/9/13 at 8:47 pm|
Was on Spotify today. Tried it, not a fan on first listen. Sounds like they set out to be a really bland Warren Zevon (or just a blander Dawes). I will listen again and see if it gets better.
| Music Board|| Music Suggestions Request - Pettifogger on 2/14/13 at 6:40 pm|
I'm looking for stuff to sit around and drink to. Basically, they type of music that would sound great on vinyl or through a tube amplified set of speakers.
Points of reference: Dylan, Van Morrison, some Miles Davis, some Otis Redding. Nothing too jangly or upbeat, looking for mellow (but not dep...
| Music Board|| New Ryan Bingham - Pettifogger on 9/12/12 at 8:56 pm|
Was up on Spotify last I checked. Not scheduled for release until next week.
I'm a huge Bingham fan, but I'm not really impressed. He's been getting more and more political, and this one just seems like cliche protest music. Almost cheesy.

If you had three (3) three (3) month blocks to go do anything, where and what would you do?
Assume you have skill set necessary for whatever it is (expert fly fisherman, experienced sailor, wealth, ability to pull tail, etc.). Also assume you wouldn't die or otherwise put your family in a bind.
