Season debut is a solid two months away.. Frick waiting for it. Who has the best performance against Indy in our first game of the season?
I think EG will put on a show just to prove his worth. Then he will slowly start being a bitch again until we trade him.
EG goes lights out from the floo...
| O-T Lounge|| Think like an engineer? - Rock of the Lake on 9/2/13 at 8:54 am|
Do you believe that people are born to think like engineers or that thinking like an engineer is a result of taking grueling engineering courses?
Also, what defines 'thinking like an engineer'? Problem solver? Good at math? Detail oriented? Creative? IYO, does it take one, a few, or all of these ...

| O-T Lounge|| Best High Schools in Louisiana? - Rock of the Lake on 7/30/13 at 3:33 pm|
I posted this in a thread earlier, and I wanted to get the OT's opinion on Louisiana high schools. I think the state's rankings are bogus since they only rank schools based on standardized test score improvement, but that may just be me.
I know there are a lot of great high schools across the st...

I got excited hearing about the possibility of trading EG, GV, Lopez and a future first for DeMarcus Cousins and Tyreke Evans. Of all of the possible lineups we could have going into the season, which roster do you think will have the best chance at putting us into the playoffs?

Taking ChE 2171 in the fall along with Physics 2102 and have been wondering what the classes are like. I...

Before this album, I loved O.A.R.'s music. All Sides, in my opinion, sucks.

Found an interesting article on setting a benchmark income to reach at some point in your life. Figured it would start some good debate. Maybe the OT can settle on a benchmark, even though there are some rumors floating around TD lately about self-inflating salaries.
From the thread, "What's the ...
