re: Crawfish Water Hose Question - pelicanpride
[quote]No man in their right mind would stand idly by and allow a woman to tote 10+ pots of water out on their head to fill up a pot. If they did, then they all deserve to be ridiculed as much as they have been in this thread.[/quote] Why the hell would he carry it? He thinks I'm being crazy. If ...

re: Crawfish Water Hose Question - pelicanpride
[quote]I hope you're hot.[/quote] Why don't I post a picture, and y'all tell me. J/k...I might be dumb enough to ask a question on here, but I ain't that dumb. Seriously though, if the extent of your wife's craziness is that she loves your children and wants them to be healthy, you could do a...

re: Crawfish Water Hose Question - pelicanpride
[quote]If you made a cup out of lead and then painted it with leaded paint, you could drink out of it two or three times a year and be fine.[/quote] I have no idea if that is true, but we've boiled crawfish 5 times over the last three months. Thanks to my kitchen water (and now my lead-free hose)...

re: Crawfish Water Hose Question - pelicanpride
[quote]So just to clarify...you go to a buddy's crawfish boil, and you see him prepping the pot. You walk up and go excuse me is your garden hose lead free? If he says no clue you roll out?[/quote] No, I don't do that. I also think GMOs are fine, and I vaccinate my freaking kids. It says it right...

re: Crawfish Water Hose Question - pelicanpride
[quote]You carry 50qts of water from the kitchen to boil crawfish? Holy shite.[/quote] I'll admit it's pretty comical. It's really not that many trips when I'm just cooking for my family. Anyway, I found a drinking water safe hose without the help of you clowns. Enjoy your lead soaked crawfish suc...

re: Crawfish Water Hose Question - pelicanpride
[quote]Supplier of water to your house have standards that have to be met. Many test are done to assure this. Unless you have a well or house plumbing is substandard all is ok.[/quote] The water to the house is fine. The water hoses are not regulated by drinking water standards. About 30% of wate...

Crawfish Water Hose Question - pelicanpride
Do any of y'all use special (drinking water safe) water hoses when cooking crawfish? If so, what kind? I usually just carry water out from my kitchen sink, but we will be boiling a lot for a boil next weekend, so that isn't an option. My husband thinks I'm crazy, but water hoses are not regulated f...

re: Married guys making $$$/ year - pelicanpride
There are excellent day care/preschools out there. I know because my kids go to one. It costs a freaking fortune, but we would still take a pretty big financial hit if I quit working to stay at home full time. If you think all day care is bad, it's because you aren't sending your kids to a place th...

re: Single guys making $150-200k a year - pelicanpride
I know tons of people who make that kind of money, basically everyone my manager's level and above. Typically, if a company pays that much (at least down South where the cost of living is lower), they think they own you, and you end up working insane hours and have to deal with constant stress. That...

re: My daughter wanted to play basketball this past season, but I wasn't a fan of it - pelicanpride
[quote]Your daughter would get no playing with boys and and even if she did she would get humiliated[/quote] Maybe. It depends on the girl. I could absolutely hang with the boys at age 9. In fact, I won a dribble, pass, and shoot competition at that age that was boys and girls mixed together. My ...

re: Does anyone still listen to oakenfold? - pelicanpride
Saw him at my first party. He was playing upstairs in the State Palace in 99 (yes, I'm old). I saw him several times back in my raving days, and he was a big deal back then. Is Tiesto still popular? I still actually listen to his stuff from time to time....

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....
