| O-T Lounge|| re: What are your personal Rules on Loaning People Money? - Big_Al_316 on 1/30/14 at 5:13 pm|
If I wanted to loan people my money, I would have opened a bank. Too often friends/family don't see any urgency to repay loans because you don't call and remind/pester them like a bank/credit company.

I try to go to the games at my kids' school just to yell at the refs. The level of competence in high school officiating is so bad, you just have to do it. At a game right before Christmas, I yelled at a ref who missed a call right in front of me, and he stopped, turned to me and started explainin...

[quote]yeah, they are very inefficient. Most heats goes up, a bit radiates down to the meat. Basically a conversation piece, that cooks very slowly. Nice on a cold day when you can cook, warm up by the fire, and get shitfaced. Kinda sucks in September when it is 100 degrees outside though.
