re: Do Russian history students learn about WWII the other way around? - pelicanpride
[quote]Getting back to the original question, I've heard Russians talk of "Americans sending Spam while Russians sent their sons". I've also heard them say that we fought Italians in Africa and Italy, then Vichy France and some Germans while most of Nazi Germany's forces were in the East. Basically ...

re: Do Russian history students learn about WWII the other way around? - pelicanpride
I've spoken to a Russian about this. They do give credit to the US but more for our contributions in the form of supplies than what we gave in the lives of men. We were contributing heavily to their cause long before d-day. They half-jokingly referred to Spam as the second front....

re: Question for Grad School Students and Graduates - pelicanpride
I left for one grad degree but returned for a second. It is useful to leave and broaden your horizons, but honestly, it is a financial decision first and foremost. Think about where you want to work after. LSU doesn't have great reach outside the Southeast, but if you want to stay in the area, leavi...

re: Georgia dad gets life in prison without parole for leaving son in hot car to die - pelicanpride
I would have had a hard time convicting, especially with his ex-wife testifying in his defense. I've texted my husband before to tell him that I was about to "go Andrea Yates" on our children. It was a joke obviously, but it would look bad in court. I've also Googled how long it takes for a child to...

re: My son wants to be a professional dancer - pelicanpride
The odds of making it as a professional dancer are not very good. I'm not saying it isn't possible, but he needs either college (getting a degree that he can use) or vocational school. He needs a real fall back plan....

re: My son wants to be a professional dancer - pelicanpride
You need to support your kid. It's great to have a passion, and unlike football, dancing is something that he can take with him past high school. I wouldn't budge on the college thing, though. Dancing is a hobby, not a career path....

re: For the fire Miles crowd last year and beginning of this year - pelicanpride
I think we have less than 50% chance of getting a coach as good as Miles. With that said, I thought that our chances of winning another title under him were basically 0. Because I want to compete for titles, I was wiling to accept the risk of replacing him. That isn't an irrational thing to do....

re: Alleva Needs to Call a Press Conference - pelicanpride
[quote]Since he wasn't proactive, that is now his only role in this situation.[/quote] Bull shite. This is his moment to shine. Even if they won't play the game, we take the high ground. I saw an article on ESPN saying that they want to play us in Nov, but we refused. Let's get our own narrative ou...

Alleva Needs to Call a Press Conference - pelicanpride
Here are his points. 1. The storm isn't as bad as anticipated. 2. No other game in Florida or nationally has been cancelled. 3. We will play Monday in an empty stadium if necessary. 4. LSU will not cancel a home game, especially because of the impact on local businesses, which are still strugg...

re: LSU and Aleva need to make strong offer for this MONDAY night - pelicanpride
[quote] Again, this was all said publicly. Saying it again won't change anything, the media won't all of a sudden jump on the bandwagon the 2nd time around.[/quote] It is a bigger story now. Put it out there. If we offered to play on Monday in an empty stadium if necessary, that should get picked...
