re: you get an unexpected package in the mail - pngtiger
Had a couple I knew when I was in residency, one was OB the other family practice. Obviously they weren't home much. One day they get home and there's a box, they bring it in but don't open. Later that night the dogs start going crazy, they look outside and see people creeping on the house, then hea...

re: Raffle House controversy in St. Tammany. - pngtiger
What happened the other years? Agree that the father shouldn't have entered, but the money usually goes to charity. Honestly it's all a giant sham. The guy that built my house does a St Jude home every few years. Just so happens that the year after I move in, it's the one across the street from m...

re: Time killer thread: LSU baseball's best non-confernce rivalries - pngtiger
I was very surprised about Houston and USA too. I remember USA coming to the Box during the old regionals. They were always tough. I also remember Rice, CSF, and USC coming to the Box during those regionals. Those were some good games. I know there was a thread on this earlier this week, but I liked...

re: What are your thoughts on mission trips? - pngtiger
I understand some of the points, especially medical vs non-medical. Yes, some of it is self-serving, but it does give you perspective to how great we have things here. I did a medical mission trip a year ago in South America. Was only a week, but it was a hard week. I learned a lot and definitely...

re: Study - Electric Cars Produce More Pollution Than Fossil Fuel-Burning Cars - pngtiger
Well that makes sense now, LHV. Though still, at 50% efficiency it's still better than a car engine. I thought the loss via transmission would be more. Taking a max of 60% and 8% loss, it'll be knocked down to 55%' which is still great. Nah, like you, I have minimal knowledge of the industry...

re: Study - Electric Cars Produce More Pollution Than Fossil Fuel-Burning Cars - pngtiger
Found this: [link=(https://www.nema.org/Products/Documents/TDEnergyEff.pdf)]LINK[/link] Says 6-8% lost in transmission. Also, it mentions 60% efficiency is combined cycle coal and natural gas, but no facts to back it up. So, maybe there are some with 60%. Wonder how many are out there though. ...

re: Study - Electric Cars Produce More Pollution Than Fossil Fuel-Burning Cars - pngtiger
Still don't see where they got 60%, though I did a rapid read of the paper so may have missed it. It's pointing to ways to improve efficiency to get the output that Japan and Germany has, but even then it's not 60%. Their coal plants are at 38% compared to 31-33% for the US. The best reported curren...

re: Study - Electric Cars Produce More Pollution Than Fossil Fuel-Burning Cars - pngtiger
I don't know where they got that 60% from. They are getting about 60% in combined cycle plants, but that's a relatively new thing. Straight natural gas is around 43% efficiency, not 60% And like I said early, there is still significant loss in the transmission of that power, which that person did...

re: Study - Electric Cars Produce More Pollution Than Fossil Fuel-Burning Cars - pngtiger
Did they factor in the pollution needed to charge the battery? Because it's very inefficient. Considering the efficiency of most power plants is 31-34% (coal, oil, nuclear), with the best fossil fuel (natural gas) at about 43%, then add in the losses in transmission, etc., the efficiency approaches ...

Your great explain, Nick Hanauer, and his talk is great and all, but he doesn't practice what he preaches.

I have a 65" 4K Sony. Love it. SD up scaling looks better on it compared to my 1080 Sony, and 1080 Vizio. HD content is great. Can really tell a difference between it and the 1080s. BTW, don't buy Vizio. Everyone I know that has one has had trouble with them, all within 6 months of purchase. And...

Don't know how we match up, but do not think they're all that great. Their schedule is bsck heavy, and their early lead in the sec was off the bottom feeders. They haven't faired well against the top teams in the sec. I think they're like vandy, decent but not great. Their only really big series...
