On Jones Creek Rd., right outside Shenandoah you can find Tony's barber shop. It's in one of the little strip malls on the road and it's just labeled "Barber Shop" on the door. Easy to miss.
He does a good job and only charges $12 per cut. I tip him $3 for a total of $15.
Now here's what re...

I love telling this story.
The first movie I saw with a date was Platoon, when I was 16.
We made out the entire time. There's people getting ambushed and shot up, legs getting blown off by mines... and we just don't even look.
It reminds me of the episode of Seinfeld where Jerry makes out ...

Why does LSU get labeled as the whiners in this scenario?
LSU wants to play everyone, more often.
Alabama is the one that is resisting change. They want to play their special friend every year.
Why is one considered the whiner while the other is not? Say what you want... the whining is ex...

This is a great idea in concept. Would need refinement.
EMP may not be your best method to employ, but something that could scramble a drone's sensors would be an interesting product.

I think Dr. Strange might make a good one, too.

LSU was protesting budget cuts at the time, so they literally got the Baptist preacher from down the road to be our speaker.
His first words were, "None of you will even remember who I am..."
And he was right.
We all felt cheated at our graduation. Totally sucked.

A place should be found to bury the body. If a governmental authority has to step in and do it, so be it. It is juvenile to think a person cannot be buried here or there, regardless of who the body once belonged to. Don't play games with the dead. It demeans us all.
