| O-T Lounge|| Spin off toilet numb legs thread...... - ruzil on 4/29/13 at 2:10 pm|
This thread got my creative juices flowing. Those first few steps after a long number two session have me looking like Lebron being helped off the court with his epic cramps.
How about a toilet/recliner combo. The leg rests and angle of the chair will take the pressure off the legs and [b]elimina...

Just purchased a house in the Goodwood neighborhood. Apparently, the former owner was a serious tree hugger and let the yard get pretty overgrown over the years.
I plan on leasing out the propery, for 6 months to a year while I sell my current house and design the new house. In the mean time I ...

So I totally understand building a curb divider to prevent east bound traffic on Perkins from turning left into the Exxon station at the Highland intersection. Good idea and it keeps traffic moving.
The curb divider in front of the new Alexander's Market is going to get someone killed. They re...

Went to the HiNeighbor on Drusilla today and was transported back to the 1960's. Go there and you will instantly understand.
And, oh, should I worry about the expiration date on the chicken wings I bought. If they smell okay, the date shouldn't matter right Darla?
| O-T Lounge|| Thinking about building a lighted bocce ball court in my backyard - ruzil on 1/31/13 at 7:55 am|
Do I have to pull any permits to do this? Since there is only vacant land next to my property, if I build it without the hassle and expense of the permits, could there be any problems in the future?
My family really enjoys playing bocce ball, and with the mild BR weather, I could see us playing ...

In the late '80s when I used to be a drug rep I had the teaching centers in Jackson MS as part of my territory. I used to bring lunches frequently to the residents and would have it catered.
Frequently, the residents would request a specific caterer called My Favorite Speghetti. They had this ch...

This one street development off Stanford has been cut in since IICR mid 2010. Looks nice but in almost 3 years only one lot has started construction and that is the developers spec home.

First stab at it was chuck roast with carrots and potatoes. Came out really good but the recipe I used has a lot of tomato paste which I though was too much. I was right but ...

Looking to make an offer on a lot with an older small (880 sq ft) house on it. It is on pillars so I don't believe it will be a difficult move. I am looking to move it to MS on some vacant land to use as a shelter of last resort.
Anyone here ever had a house moved and knows of any local compani...

What if all of this extreme buying of ammo by the gov is just a way to track them to the end user.
They buy ammo, affix RFD's on the packages, get them back into the market, and then they can locate the purchasers ammo chache.
Sounds familiar, doesn't it. Hmmmmmmm.......... :blackheli: ...

Was going to go the the Red Lobster with the wife tonight but I fortuitously checked the OT Before leaving home to hear about the ruckuss going on at the mall. :bow:
Instead we detoured to the Sonic on highland and had a nice grilled cheese that looked surprizingly like the advertisements. :nana:...

can't be pushed open from the inside? I frickin' hate when I have to grab a handle to leave the bathroom when I know good and well that most of you friggers don't wash their hands after using the facilities!
And if you have to put a handle on the door, put a trash can near by so I don't have to t...

Just got a call from my CC company to alert me that there has been some unauthorized charges on my card and that they have cancelled cards and will reissue them.
First charge was for a charity in china for $10.23 today presumably to nail down the exp date on the card.
Then, a $280 charge at D...

I really don't care for this stuff. I can generally tell if I eat something that contains it. It just makes me feel weird and gives me a headache.
What do you think of this flavor enhancer?...
| O-T Lounge|| Are there different sizes of tampons? - ruzil on 1/1/13 at 10:43 am|
I ask this because I once had an employee that separated from the company. She was quite wild and was very fond of men of color. Another employee was cleaning out her station and found a tampon that was at least 3 times the diameter of any tampon I had ever seen. :cool:
So, are they not one si...

| O-T Lounge|| Is there anything that you wish were uninvented? - ruzil on 12/30/12 at 8:53 pm|
For me it would be the DVR (or VCR). Specials on television used to be, well ....special.
The Wizard of Oz at Thanksgiving or the Charlie Brown specials would have families gathering around the television to watch it the only time it was on. If you missed it....well.....you missed it.

should local police forces also be required to do the same? If I recall correctly, they only got them to combat the increased fire power of the baddies.
They should not need them since banning all semi-assault weapons will solve all gun violence, right?!...
