re: Anybody a member of Mensa here? - White Roach
Yes. Never helped me much, other than allowing me to roll with the punches that life dishes out over the years. Made it easier to get back up and make the kinds of decisions that would affect the rest of my life. More options were open to me because school was so easy for any of them. ----------...

re: Anybody a member of Mensa here? - White Roach
True story... At my first MENSA meeting, a women who was both abnormally tall and (apparently) a good test taker, tried to recruit me into a tall persons group.

re: Thanks Tigerdroppings people for past support - White Roach
I'm sorry for your loss, Fish. It sounds like your brother fought as hard as any man could. We've never met, but I know you are a good person from what I've seen on TD. You have serious health problems of your own, but you're always willing to help others - often strangers - in big and small way...

re: The Great Flood of 2016: Fill Out Disaster Forms NOW. Link Inside! - White Roach
"The second greatest tragedy in this whole catastrophe is the fact that in the Baton Rouge area only 12 percent of the residences had flood insurance in place," '' It is astounding that only 39 % of homeowners across New Orleans have flood insurance.'' said Donelon. I have a feeling that a m...

I can't believe how horrible this seems to be from reading all of the stories on here and watching WAFB. What is fricked up is I would have no idea what is going on if I wasn't on this site, the MSM hasn't made a peep about it. On CNN.com, MSNBC.com, FoxNews.com there there is nothing.....it is unrea...

re: I am so out of shape - White Roach
Do you know the appropriate weight of your pack? I'd rather carry a few extra pounds if it translates into a higher degree of comfort. I did the tarp routine a few times and got my arse chewed up by bugs. I bought a Sierra Designs tent that weighs about 3-1/2 lbs. The extra comfort is worth the ex...
