re: Edgar Wright's new movie Baby Driver has a trailer, the cast is absurd - SpqrTiger
I don't get it. What's bad about the trailer? Interesting character, interesting background. All characters established easily. Chase ensues. See the movie to see the rest. I'll watch it. ...

re: Breaking: 'Gravy' Gary Chambers doesn't like being called 'Gravy' - SpqrTiger

re: How were old world armies so easily out smarted? - SpqrTiger
Armies in the ancient world were actually more proficient at communication than some in this thread have suggested. Read Caesar's Commentaries for evidence. You will see that Caesar was in constant communication with his troops, his allies, and the government in Rome. This is, of course, not evidenc...

re: Mayor Broome, LSU President Alexander agree to work together to prevent second St. George - SpqrTiger
I don't see where stopping St. George is anywhere near the President of the LSU System's priorities or responsibilities. If F. King Alexander wants to get involved in politics, he should be spending his time and energy at the Capitol, where LSU routinely gets its arse kicked at the Legislature. ...

re: Why do school teachers complain so much about being a school teacher?? - SpqrTiger
I give them a pass. Everyone complains about their job to some extent. I would think teachers have a pretty good reason to complain, with all the children they have to deal with - either in their classroom, or in the admin's office. They have lots of time off, that's true - but that doesn't negat...

re: Potential career change - SpqrTiger
If it were me, and I was young and had IT skills, I would be looking into network security. Every corporation and organization in America should be going bonkers over security, after this past year. And it's always going to be a need going forward. It's never too early to get an education and get...

re: Butler: Mixed signals on this board- good or bad for #32? - SpqrTiger
I see Butler as a known commodity who can help us. Honestly, I just don't trust the Saints front office to draft a front-line cornerback. When was the last time that they drafted a guy who came in and performed at Butler's level? Or even just below him? It's been a long time. I think if we get...

re: A thread where you brag about the coolest thing you own - SpqrTiger
I have a football signed by LSU's 2003 national championship team, and a football signed by the 2007 national championship team. I also have infield dirt from the old Alex Box Stadium, and a chunk of marble from Pompeii, stained by volcanic ash. ...

re: Will Louisiana ever get its act together? - SpqrTiger
I don't think it will ever happen. Louisiana will always struggle. We are built on a shaky foundation. Literally and figuratively. We have problems with crime, poverty, drug and alcohol abuse, mental health, the environment (coastal land loss), education, economic diversification, frequent nat...

I'm not sure what's worst: 1. That you counted. 2. That I counted. 3. That we both counted differently. 4. That we are both judging the hitability of our ancestors. Still, I regret nothing....

re: Clemson University Requires All Freshman to Take New Social Justice Course - SpqrTiger
The thing that sucks about this is that you will have kids who have never done a bad thing to anyone else sit and endure the same lecture you would have to give to morons. The assumption is that all entering students are unsophisticated regarding race, gender, and disabilities... and how to behav...

[quote]You're kidding right? Cartman and his Christian rock group, Faith + 1 say hello.[/quote] Faith +1 may have gone myrrh, but back in 2004, the Passion was one of Hollywood's first big tests of the modern Christian market as far as film is concerned. If you remember... there were a lot...

re: What is this board's opinion on The Passion of the Christ? - SpqrTiger
If a Roman flagrum was used on Jesus, the result would have been similar to what was in the film. That device was not sensationalized. It actually existed/exists. Three to nine leather strands with lead weights and nails built into it to tear flesh. If you gave a piece of plywood 40 lashes with t...

re: What is this board's opinion on The Passion of the Christ? - SpqrTiger
My take: I think the Passion of the Christ is a very well-made and moving film. It really is one that you can't watch often, but it is one that you should return to every once in a while, when you feel a need to re-connect. I have a ton of respect for what Mel Gibson accomplished with this mo...

[quote]i have noticed this a lot more the last few years, especially with cashiers. [/quote] A cashier's job is pretty boring, really. I did it in college. I know. Most of the time when a cashier strikes a short conversation with you, it's to break the monotony. They're just trying to get thro...

re: [UPDATE] F'ing Nerd State Rep. Wants to Ban Alcohol Licensing by State Universities - SpqrTiger
Ridiculous. I don't drink, and dislike alcohol. But it's a legal product that carries with it no intrinsic immorality. If it was so immoral, it would be banned outright. But it isn't, because Glover and pals don't have the political balls to do it. Instead, we get little potshots taken at it that...
