How can the courts not reject this "ruling."

| O-T Lounge|| re: Why is drunk driving such an epidemic in this state? - TejasHorn on 3/12/14 at 10:31 am|
It's worse in Texas. Drunk driving among Hispanic men is beyond epidemic proportions. Couple that with the same issues as LA ("macho" factor).
Driving late night in Dallas or Houston? Better watch which side of the freeway those headlights are coming from. ...

There has to be a disconnect at UNL between the administration and fan expectations. They can win big again with the right coach but don't seem up to the task of hiring one.
That's their only hope... recruiting to Nebraska ain't what it used to be. i.e. special scholarships and southern calif...

Having worked in fast food in my formative years, I can attest that you should avoid drinks where possible. The ice machines, tea urns, etc. are a b*tch to clean so they don't get done enough. Get bottled drinks if possible.
The rest is just a crap shoot. You can tell a lot about a place by th...

We can debate the societal and macro economic effects of too many degreed workers.
But, with very rare exception, employers will pick the degreed candidate (yes, gasp.. even lib arts) over the non degreed one. I would never advise someone not to go to college. lol...

JJ's is o.k. and a decent price. I always get the peppers.
Potbelly's has the world's most awesomest italian sub with hot peppers though... toasted. :drool:

Uptown is most definitely superior to Addison for someone your age. Live there first and get a feel for the rest of the city.
Lakewood-M Streets area is better for a more laid back, less concrete feel, while still close to the nightlife. Commute would be a little longer to Addison though.

field goal holder=least pressure. It's usually a starting or backup QB, though. Holder never gets the blame unless your name is Tony Romo.
I mean, they made a whole movie about it.

To me, slalom skiing is the quintessential winter olympic event. Not judged, done on snow and requires more skill than racing downhill.
Plus we sucked in skiing for a while.
Way to go Mikaela. :USA:

Most definitely not. If I was a surgeon I'd probably do it long enough to retire very early. But that's why I'm not a surgeon!
FYI, it's one of those jobs that always ranks high on the psychopath list (in the clinical sense, not talking criminals). Probably due to the extreme confidence and fo...
