re: For the first time, I recommended that a friend not come visit NOLA - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]The strange thing about the NOLA loyalists- and the whole state of Louisiana for that matter- is that no matter what the nature of the criticism, they all go into defensive mode. I don't know why, but most people in this state cannot accept criticism of any kind. They immediately attack the...

re: For the first time, I recommended that a friend not come visit NOLA - Cold Cous Cous
[quote]That is pretty incredible. I'm assuming "many many" has got to be 10-15+ years? I mean its a city, crime happens. [/quote] I've lived here my whole life and I'm pretty much the same. My mom's car was stolen (in Metry) 20 or 25 years ago, and I've had two bikes stolen by tpos homeless guys. A...

OT Lawyers - What is the purpose of the Louisiana Record? - Cold Cous Cous
I don't understand why this website exists - it seems to just be a regurgitation of every new lawsuit filed in the EDLA. It is run by "U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform," which I assume is a tort reform group, but they don't have any editorializing. It's just article after article of "X sued...

The hardware only costs ~$100. This seems like a great solution for someone who wants to wo...

Drainage holes in the bottom of the trash can? - Cold Cous Cous
My trash cans are forever catching rainwater, and right now I've got about an inch of the most disgusting standing water imaginable in the bottom of the can. I was thinking about drilling a couple 3/8" holes for drainage, but will this cause problems with bugs or maggots getting into the trash? than...
