re: Mike White - ortiz1193
[quote]Their offense is anemic. Their is ZERO ball movement. They cant even set a proper pick. It's worse than watching the NBA. It's all 1:1 garbage. Same thing happened the other night. They hit 3s in the 1st half but then got tired and could not create and hit tough shots. Rick Barry should be as...

re: How many times have you been summoned for jury duty? - ortiz1193
When I was 20, I served on a jury for a double homicide. There was a strong self-defense case but the other jurors weren't having it, and he got charged with manslaughter. The other charge was clear manslaughter. The trial was pretty intense - they even showed us pictures of the inside of the dead g...

re: do they still have academic competition "rallies" in Louisiana ? - ortiz1193
They still have literary rally for a bunch of different subjects. There's a district competition and then the top scorers qualify for the state rally. I don't think you get scholarships for winning anything at state though. Maybe LSU gives a small state rally scholarship since they host it, but no o...

re: You ever helped the cops finger someone for a crime? - ortiz1193
This summer I was visiting a friend at the University of Alabama. We're standing on a patio at an apartment near campus, and this dude just runs straight off the road, rips a speed limit sign out of the ground and sends it flying, rips some other nice looking posts out of the ground. He and his girl...

re: Gamecocks 85 LA Tech 76 - Final - ortiz1193
It was an enjoyable game except for there being a foul called 8 out of every 10 possessions. Silva was a monster at the end of the game when it was close. I'm expecting us to be top 2 or 3 in CUSA, so we should be a decent win for you guys. ...

re: Louisiana Tech non-conference home basketball schedule is atrocious - ortiz1193
I would argue that we have such a high winning percentage in the TAC because we don't play anyone OOC with a chance at beating us. We just have to win 1 or 2 tough CUSA games at home every year to rack up a 40-game home winning streak. ...

re: Louisiana Tech non-conference home basketball schedule is atrocious - ortiz1193
I had never heard of Maryland Eastern Shore until I looked at the schedule. Also, Tech beat LSUS by 30+ last year... I vaguely remember a bunch of tiny white guys running around, but I might be getting them mixed up with Millsaps....

re: How is your life worse as a result of Obama's policies? - ortiz1193
I've been in the college bubble secluded from the real world, so nothing really impacts me yet, but my parents don't make much money (40-50k), and their health insurance nearly doubled. Absolutely crippled our family financially. They've been making bad financial decisions for their entire lives alr...

re: What Is Your Exclusive List Of The Scariest Movies? *UPDATED & COMPILED NUMBERS* - ortiz1193
I saw The Descent in middle school and was absolutely horrified. It's the only movie I've seen to legitimately scare me... I was afraid to look outside the rest of the night I also think I saw some scenes of Nightmare on Elm Street when I was like 9 and that also scared me a lot...

Official Crystal Healing thread - ortiz1193
I was recently introduced to the scientific field of "crystal healing." After the shock of discovering such a rare scientific discipline wore off, I began researching, leading to the discovery of this youtube channel that has everything you need to know about crystal healing. https://www.youtube.com...

re: "I'm a Gay Activist, and After Orlando, I Have Switched My Vote to Trump" - ortiz1193
I have a Facebook friend that is a HUGE LGBT activist (shares >2 LGBT related posts every single day) that uses the word queer all the time in a serious, scholarly way. Since he has a large LGBT social circle, I doubt he's the only one using the word queer, so I'm gonna say it's used a non trivial a...

re: What have you read recently, and what are you currently reading? - ortiz1193
I read pretty frequently and focus on classic, canonical works. In the last few weeks I've read The Catcher in the Rye (Salinger) - About a few days in the life of 16 year old Holden Caulfield after he gets kicked out of his 3rd boarding school. He's pretty socially awkward and hates everything m...

re: Sanders is impressive - ortiz1193
He spent the first ten minutes pandering super hard to the African-American vote. He said his favorite Supreme Court Justice was Thurgood Marshall with absolutely no justification. His passion is really exciting, and I could almost consider voting for him if it wasn't for the free college plan. ...
