re: 18 spectacularly wrong predictions from the original "Earth Day" - LSUgusto

[quote]He said he would just walk around in Kroger in disbelief.[/quote]Hell, I've done that in Sam's Club. There's no doubt America has an overstock of products immediately available. My concern is that Americans won't know what to do if that supply is interrupted for any extended period of tim...

[quote]Romania wasn't it?[/quote]I think so. Remember when the USSR fell, with refugees streaming out of opened borders? They were surprisingly more westernized than I ever imagined, even having a grasp of the English language. You have to wonder how much of that was due to VCR's and American p...

[quote]profound effect both good and bad[/quote]Yep, that's why Christ never promoted a religion. Religion is a product of mankind, which is flawed. His salvation was personal, and individual. Religion has been a conduit to spread that message, but it never is the true model of Christianity. B...

re: Funeral Songs that get you... - LSUgusto
My mother had an older brother who was severely crippled at birth. Barely developed and mostly skeletal, he died at 13 years of age while being held in his mother's arms in a rocking chair. My mom was playing around on the floor as a child, and she heard something that sounded like a deep gasp...

re: 99 Loft Baloons - LSUgusto
Want to hear a good, unknown story? Here ya go... In Cameron Parish, there's a lake called "Lake Misere". In French, that means, "destitution." Or, "Misery." The reason that lake has that name dates back to around the Civil War. As the Confederacy was being defeated, a couple of sla...

re: Update: US & Jordan Military Break Into Syria to Rescue Rebels Surrounded By ISIS - LSUgusto
If this is to establish safe zones, I fully support. This should have been the American position from the get-go. Unfortunately, it's probably too late now, thanks to Obama's pussification. If it can be done, it would also allow Europe to return refugees to Syria, which would be a win for t...
