[quote]ETA: Why would the Dutch give privileges or are you joking?[/quote]
The Dutch had a system in which the more white you were, the more privileges you had. Blacks were treated like shite (property). Mulattos were slightly higher. Quadroons (a quarter black) had even more rights. Octoroons (on...

For a while it was going for $23.99/handlebar here in Fort Worth as opposed to $22.99/handlebar for regular 80-proof Captain. I think that the liquor store owner caught on and jacked it to $26.99. It's still good stu...

Fortunately, the few female officers that we have are fairly "manly" in their interactions with co-workers. They're not lesbians or anything, but their personality types are such that they'd just rather be around men. One even told me "I couldn't do what your wife does. I couldn't stand to work with...

I don't need to work with females. My mom once told me that she HATED working with women. She said that every time she had a male manager, things just flowed smoothly and there were no problems. Any time the male manager was promoted and was succeeded by a female, the place went to shite within month...

I'm not sold on the fact that our defensive failures are Snyder's fault. He did "reasonably" well in 2012, but that was with Nealy, Porter, and Moore. If a few guys (Claiborne/Garrett) step up, then we could be better than expected. We won't lead the SEC in defense, but if our QB is even halfway com...
