Anyone ever lived in Hawaii? - Tigerfan56
I'm planning a vacation there this winter. I keep kind of wondering what it would be like to just stay there and make a living? I'm young, debt free, single. I have my college degree. A part of me thinks this is the kind of decision that would be very difficult to make, but I'd thank myself 20 y...

re: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: The NCAA (HBO) - Tigerfan56
[quote]Is it funny to anyone else that all the posters on this board will harp on the Jon Taylor incident ad nauseam. And then turn right around and accuse Bama fans of hubris in thinking that the Jon Taylor incident is national news. [/quote] Probably because this is the SEC Rant. Most of us ...

re: How many of you put your religion before everything else in life? - Tigerfan56
[quote]If following one's religion makes one a better, caring, kind, and thoughtful person - by all means, I don't care. Look at Mormons. Bat shite crazy theology, but some of the most genuine and good people I've ever met.[/quote] I agree. That's one of the best aspects of religion. I'm more curi...

How many of you put your religion before everything else in life? - Tigerfan56
It seems to me that you see a lot of people who "put God first" or "live their life for God". If you are one of these people, have you explored any other religions? I would imagine that 95% of people have not extensively researched or explored any other religion outside of the one they follow....

Sweet brag thread? [quote]Along with a tax credit for putting my daughter through college, I ended up getting $1000 from the government for money I didn't even pay in taxes. No wonder the government runs a deficit. I'm pretty well off and can afford to pay taxes. [/quote] Actually, if you wer...

[quote]So you agree that all those grades you got-way before high school-meant something important. So important that you could do things like fail or pass grades, etc.? [/quote] Classic straw-man.
