I did it for about a month and hated it, but I didn't have a device other than my laptop for streaming shows, no HBO go, and I love sports (especially Collegiate Football and baseball) so it was tough for me to adjust (also, LSU was paying post-season baseball at the time)...

I had been fielding a couple offers for jobs post-graduation and finally decided between them last week. Neither of them were exactly what I was looking for, but were both good opportunities. The one I took had above average pay for the job in that market, but nothing too crazy. I called and acce...

Many libertarians and gun rights supporters defended Bundy. Painting him as a racist allows the media to paint all of his supporters (or even those who just thought the government's response to his delinquency was out of line) with the same brush. Now, anyone who supports guns is automatically rac...

| Off-Topic Board|| re: Why are handguns legal? - brodeo on 4/24/14 at 11:38 am|
because the people you need guns to protect yourself from (i.e. criminals) don't follow gun laws. Laws against owning guns only keep guns out of the hands of those responsible enough to not cause issues with them in the first place. The real reason governments try to push through gun control is no...

[quote]A lot of entry level jobs let employees work overtime. Depending on what the hourly rate is, it could be easy to pull in double what you make. Especially if the turn over rate is high. With this, it's very possible for the youth to pay the overwhleming student debt that is plaguing college le...

The reason people watch Major League Baseball is not from some sense of patriotism, it is because they want to watch the sport of baseball played by the best baseball players in the world. Love of baseball is about love of the game and love of one's team, not love for one's country.
