re: Spinoff thread: What was your first job? - chrome_daddy
Pumping gas, changing tires, cleaning public bathrooms at the local gas station in the mid-70's for $2/hour. I thought I was a king and happy to do it 30 hours a week....

re: If you had to choose: Charlotte vs Birmingham vs Nola - chrome_daddy
Charlotte by a large margin for me. I'm an outdoors guy: Mountains are close World-class facilities for paddling, mountainbiking, climbing, hiking. Several places to go rock crawling in 4x4. Nantahala Outdoor Center is pretty close. Asheville is close and supercool. I'm a car guy...neve...

re: Radio Shack files for Chapter 11. Closing up to 1/4 of Stores - chrome_daddy
I got my start in computers with the Shack. Sold a bunch of them via Tandy Biz Products in the mid-80's on Florida Blvd. Learned how to sell, great commissions! Those were the days. Now computers and electronics are all commodities that everyone knows something about. ...

re: 14 minute video from 60 minutes: The Marijuana Effect - chrome_daddy
Talk about being retarded. Do you keep this chart on your PC for quick reference? IMO, intoxication is easily the highest danger. I could care less if someone else wants to medicate themselves to numbness with some substance, as long as it doesn't bother me. It's when intoxication drifts ove...

re: Eric Cantor loses GOP primary - chrome_daddy
Clearly you are wrong. I live in Hanover County, referenced in UncleFester's WaPost article. Cantor support DROPPED PRECIPITOUSLY from his landslide in 2012. It certainly wasn't Dem support he lost. Yes, my buddies and I met last night and shared a toast to Dave's win. We were all former Can...

re: Virginia Democrat Senator Phillip Puckett resigns - chrome_daddy
Bingo. It's a win for the hapless Virginia Repubs. Virginia was a reliable Red state when I moved here in the 90's, but with the growth of NOVA, the populace has voted for Dems for state office, US Senator, and Pres here in the last 3-4 years. If you love in NOVA, maybe you SHOULD pay att...

re: Anyone Here a Software Developer? - chrome_daddy
I couldn't disagree more. I've been managing developers for 20 years and would LOVE it if I could be like some of my guys: very few meetings, get handed designs, get to do the creative things with a language to solve a problem while rocking out with their headphones on. Of course, they don't make ...

re: The growing DC suburbs leave the GOP up the creek without a paddle - chrome_daddy
It's just like when the brilliant Va GOP'ers picked Olly North to run against a tainted Chuck Robb for Senate a while back...one of the few people in the free world that could actually lose. Cuccinelli always seemed like an unyielding jerk while in office, with his social agenda on his sleeve. ...

re: When and Why did you become an LSU Tiger? - chrome_daddy
I wasn't one of the fortunate ones that had family or friends that were Tiger fans. I grew up primarily in South Carolina in a household totally devoid of any kind of sports fanaticism. My parents both worked alot and we didn't watch much TV when we were home...strictly blue collar. I became a...

[quote] Do you really think LSU didn't want to score more than 9 in the first match up? [/quote] This is what PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND!!! LSU, unlike Bama, did not take any chances in that game. They only took what Bama gave them. That was the gameplan...to play defense and special teams and n...

re: Am I the only adult never to have tried marijuana? - chrome_daddy
Does it say something about whether someone is open-minded or not? Do you think that some of you all lived sheltered lives? Are you all not risk takers? Did you all grow up in country clubs and have never experienced the hard edges of life? I don't smoke and never did much as I didn't like the...

re: Webb (D-Va) won't seek re-election - chrome_daddy
From my view in Virginia, Webb was only elected due to the growing discontent against the Bush administration and all the wars, which he promised to fight to put an end to. The NoVa libs put him in office. Allen was seen as a reliable party-line Bush supporter, which hurt him in the end and probab...

re: I Hate VT option - chrome_daddy
Bingo...and Virginia is the 8th most populous state. VT fans across the state are loyal and rabid (much more so than the ones from Mr. Jefferson's University). This would be a great move by the SEC. Let's just skip over NC....
