re: Buying a new boat... - TheLSUriot
Your friends underwater on that boat. You would be doing him a huge favor. Last year I bought a decked out 2013 H22 for ~23k. Came with JP, 8' Talon, 3 Humminbird units, 70 lbs TM, etc... My FIL has a 1810 and I can’t stand fishing out of that thing now. Going from 18’ to 22’ will be a noticeable d...

re: Twin study finds space flight causes changes at the genetic level - TheLSUriot
I have soooo much to say about this but so little time since I actually work. First, let me clarify, 'NASA scientist' do need grants. They are commonly funded through a Headquarters program, the Human Research Program, or the National Space Biomedical Research Institute. Genetic testing has be...

re: Suggest me a Battery for Trolling Motor - TheLSUriot
I have 2 group 27 Exide batteries (Academy brand) running my trolling motor. The boat is a 2013 that I bought last year from a fella that had started traveling a lot for work and wasn't able to keep up on maintenance of the summer. Both batteries were completely drained and badly needed fluid when I...

re: Marvel Agents of Shield new season thread - TheLSUriot
Mockingbird and Hunter. Hopefully they come back. Also, one of the cable channels is airing reruns on Wednesday nights. Caught the episode when Skye shoots Ward, they find the hidden city, and Quake gets her powers from the diviner. Reminded me how much I miss Trip and the old school gadgets....

I asked for a ken onion edition last Christmas and highly recommen...

re: Space Shuttle was a colossal waste of money - TheLSUriot
Ace, You are absolutely correct, Enterprise (OV-101) was nothing more that a test vehicle that ended up at the Smithsonian in '85. Was having lunch at my desk as I typed that and didn't mean to imply anything contrary. Columbia was the first flight worthy shuttle and Discovery was to be the first s...

re: Space Shuttle was a colossal waste of money - TheLSUriot
I almost wasted part of my lunch break to explain things to a gnome. Rather, I will simply state that for anyone who actually feels the shuttle program was a waste or somehow a mistake should take the time to educate themselves on the history, particularly early history, and changes in government/mi...

re: If Trump wins will you take the plunge and start your own business? - TheLSUriot
Have been seriously considering but extremely hesitant due to a drastic increase in government intervention into that marketplace immediately following Obama’s reelection. It has been insane to observe what has happened to small businesses. So many have simply closed or sold out to larger entities. ...

re: Congressional black caucus upset with Loretta lynch and DOJ - TheLSUriot
I listened to Hannity last night for a while. He is absolutely correct in this analysis. While Geraldo sounded like an blubber idiot at times trying to make his counterpoint. The biggest take away for me was how truly moved I was by Mayor Giuliani's passion for doing the right thing to save lives an...
