re: Florida has to win Game 1 if they want to win the series - GeauxPack81 on 6/26/17 at 8:38 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[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.

[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.

re: Best Mexican in BR? - GeauxPack81 on 6/15/17 at 9:27 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Economics Book Club (EBC): Book 2 Starts June 26 (Sowell's Applied Economics) - GeauxPack81 on 6/5/17 at 9:47 am
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
