| O-T Lounge|| Serious question about insurance and riots - ruzil on 8/12/14 at 8:34 pm|
The insurance I carry on my business office has an exclusion for acts of terrorism. I can understand the reasoning behind this.
What I am curious about is what, exactly, defines terrorism. For instance, is the rioting in St Louis just run of the mill crime or an act of terrorism?
What do the...
| Food and Drink Board|| Went to Whole Foods today and saw some nice looking pasture raised steaks. - ruzil on 8/8/14 at 8:36 pm|
They were nicely marbled and honestly looked good but I did not purchase them. I wanted to run it by the experts here before I spent that kind of money.
Is "pasture raised" a term similar to "gulf fish" that all the cool kids know is used to fool the public so that they buy an inferior product...
| Food and Drink Board|| I finally dusted off that Galatoire's Bistro gift certificate - ruzil on 8/6/14 at 6:59 pm|
and was pleasantly surprised at how good everything was.
I had eaten there a couple of times the first year they were open at the new location and didn't not care for it. It was noisy, had unpolished service and found the food to be very average.
Recently, there has been a bit of discussion a...

A man, crapping his pants or a woman overflowing her tampon. Assume that both accidents seep through their clothing and are visible to the casual observer.

| O-T Lounge|| Serious question about nudists. - ruzil on 7/9/14 at 4:09 pm|
I happened upon a nudist video while getting my nubian princess fights fix on Youtube.
This girl was giving a tour of their planned nudist resort and mentioned that they would have a nice restaurant. This got me thinking about nudist dining etiquette.
Do nudists place napkins on their laps wh...

A few years ago, I had hanger steak at Coquette served with an arugula pesto that was incredible.
I happened upon some hanger steak while in Whole Foods on Sunday and decided to recreate this dish.
After liberally salt and peppering the steak, I vac sealed it and put it in the sous vide at 135...

I noticed this today on the circle part of College Drive.
I have been driving in this area sporadically over the past 20-25 years and have always been amused by the efforts by who ever lives in that grey house to construct a berm, I guess to prevent so...
| O-T Lounge|| Why do so many women mess with their lips? - ruzil on 6/22/14 at 9:06 pm|
I totally understand using botox to soften wrinkles to appear younger, but injecting the lips with dermal fillers rarely make a female look more attractive imho.
Some examples for your perusal:

I am in the process of trying to find a custom homebuilder for a new construction.
Anyone build with them in the last few years?
How are they to work with? Are they easy to contact by phone or email?
Do they stay on schedule?
And if there were any problems, did they stand by their work...

Heard someone I went to high school with singing a song in tribute to a relative that had just died. It was a touching tribute, but let's just say he shouldn't quit his day job.
This got me thinking about musical talent in the days before recorded music. I assume people just amused themselves by...
