re: Florida has to win Game 1 if they want to win the series - GeauxPack81
Agreed, UF has to win game 1 to win the series. LSU is planning for games 2 and 3. Dangerous, but its probably the right move given how tired the good arms on this team probably are. I disagree on the team that manages to score 3 will win the games. I think its more like 5, probably 6 or 7 in ga...

re: Summer of Ghost(calandros is screwed) - GeauxPack81
As the people before mentioned, turn down the lights and play music. When there is a big game on, turn off the music and play the TV sound. 2 of the easiest things you can do. Next, use your damn Instagram account. I know y'all use Facebook, but Instagram is a much better platform for this. And d...

re: EBC Book #1 - Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt - GeauxPack81
[quote]A very salient point is made in the fourth section of Ch. 14 on "Saving the X Industry." [/quote] Great quote. I love drinking craft beer, and this speaks to that industry so well. Its so heavily regulated so that craft breweries don't take over the market. We have to have distributors, ...

re: EBC Book #1 - Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt - GeauxPack81
[quote]If you read the "Parable of the Broken Window" article on Wikipedia, it does appear Hazlitt's point is that the loss in value of the non-fully depreciated asset is essentially a destruction of wealth that we'll never get back.[/quote] That's the argument IMO. Just to play devils advocate, ...

re: Best Mexican in BR? - GeauxPack81
Best food or best restaurant? The places with the best Mexican food, like La Tiendita, have literally 0 atmosphere. The places with the best atmosphere have average food thats more expensive than the better stuff. I'm waiting for someone to take an awesome location, renovate the space to crea...

re: Anyone here started their own bar? - GeauxPack81
I think your idea would be perfect for BR. There is nothing like it. Hopefully Dat Dog and the Gov't beer garden will have what you mentioned. Weather in BR is bad 50% of the time, but our good weather days are as good as they get. Anytime the weather is great like that, me and my friends love going...

re: 2017 Newcomers: Who do we need to know from your team? - GeauxPack81
[quote]Jake Slaughter, LS......... .258. Not as nice, but he liked to get hit by pitches so there is that. [/quote] Not nearly as much as he like striking out. I was really excited for him, but he has managed to turn himself into my least favorite player on the team. It seems like he is an u...

You should keep this as a master thread for future discussion on which books to read next and for adding suggestions. Have links in the OP to the individual book threads in this master thread so we can always reference back to older books and discussions. You can include a list of current members or...

re: Economics Book Club (EBC): Book 2 Starts June 26 (Sowell's Applied Economics) - GeauxPack81
I am interested. I love economics and I love reading, but the few books I have read on the topic have been hard to get through. I might be on and off with this. May be a good chance to listen to an audio book, I have never done that before. I graduated in finance and work in commercial banking. ...

re: How many books are you currently reading? - GeauxPack81
2. I always struggle to read more than 1 book at a time. My second book is a personal finance book, and I typically only read a chapter or 2 in between trying to find a new primary book. I can't handle 2 books with plots at the same time....

re: Are you using Goodreads or another app to track what you read? - GeauxPack81
I love Goodreads. Its a great place to keep track of what all I want to read, and what all I have already read. I like the goal tracker too. [quote] I think my kindle does it automatically for me now, which is nice.[/quote] Yep, same. Except it has messed up my "currently reading" shelf. Its ...

re: Best books on Austrian economics? - GeauxPack81
Economics for Real People: An Introduction to the Austrian School - Gene Callahan I liked it because it is written very plainly. Not hard to understand at all, it was an easier read than most economics books. He also quotes alot of books by famous Austrian economists, so you get their writing as ...
