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. ...

re: If the Republicans nominate Kasich, they win. Here's why. - ortiz1193
Kasich is a lock to win the general versus Hillary or Bernie. Everything the OP said is 100% true. It's depressing that the Trumpkins hold on to the delusional hopes that Trump will win the presidency. [quote]He is the leader America needs but sadly not one they'll get because the country has go...

re: LA Tech defeats THE Ohio State University 82-74 - ortiz1193
Not only was Memphis bringing the pain at the beginning, they were getting extremely lucky with shots bouncing their way, and a ton of foul calls (not necessarily bad ones). When Tech adjusted and Memphis's momentum slowed, Tech didn't seem that much worse and cut the lead from 25 to 17, which could...

re: What is your favorite painting? - ortiz1193
Someone already posted View of Toledo, so I'll go with Mantegna's Parnassus, the much less famous, yet much cooler counterpart to the scenes painted by Raphael and Mengs. [img]http://mini-site.louvre.fr/mantegna/images/section8/zoom/08_03.jpg[/img]...

re: This guy on Jeopardy could pull a Ken Jennings - ortiz1193
I kind of know this guy. Like someone said earlier, he's been one of the top 2 or 3 Quiz Bowl players in the world for the last few years. He led Yale to a national championship a few years ago. If you're interested in reading more about his Quiz Bowl accomplishments: [link=(http://www.qbwik...
