re: Jazz Fest crowd control - eitek1
I left acura at 5:50 and walked directly to the Gentilly stage to listen to Van Morrison for a few songs. We left and walked back to see Pearl Jam. We walked on the track to the far side to exit 6. We never saw a wall of people at all it wasn't hard to move around. I even stopped to use the Porta po...

re: Spinoff my own thread: who here has excelled at a musical instrument? - eitek1
I was in the army with a guy that could play everything you listed as well as anyone I ever heard. In his down time all he did was play...ever. He didn't own a car or go out or anything. He was married to his guitar and it was all he wanted to do. That's how you get to that level. Those guys are ...

re: DirecTv billing increase - eitek1
I have only streamed programs for probably the past 4 years. I got tired of the antics of directTV like you did. I can tell you this, I WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER go back to a regular subscription. EVER. Try going a few years without ever seeing a commercial and then try to watch regular TV. It's t...

re: Millennials Work Harder for the Same Pay Their Parents Did - eitek1
Overall production is up because automation is better. This is a true statement. Let's say you work in a bread factory. In your parents day all activities were manual. They were as efficient as the least efficient person. Now all that is automated and it's more efficient with better production. ...

re: Millennials Work Harder for the Same Pay Their Parents Did - eitek1

People today can't even do what people could 15 years ago. The craftsmanship that people attained 30 or 40 years ago in most instances ...

He was charged with having weed on him. I have had a LEO admit that he had seen his fellow officers plant evidence before. There are many cases of this happening elsewhere also. I wouldn't be surprised if he got that planted on him. Honestly. Also I give the respect I'm given as well. I've ne...

re: Commuter car recs wanted. - eitek1
Do yourself a favor and drive a Scion xB. I went through the same search you did. The Scion xB is the best commuter vehicle I've found. Mine has 114k miles on it and I've just done basic maintenance. It's got a lot of pick up and handles really well. It has almost as much interior room as my wife's ...

re: Ever deal with somebody you strongly suspected or later found out was secretly - eitek1
My step brother was in Delta in the 90s he was a SF weapons specialist before that. We were both stationed at ft Bragg at the same time. He NEVER would admit he was in delta or that he was still in the army. I had literally ridden with his wife to pick up his mail at the delta compound. He never ...

re: Why does life go by so fast - eitek1
I have a theory that it's percieved as a percentage of total. Time goes by slow if you are a toddler because 1 day is a larger portion of your life by percentage. If you're 2.5 years old, 1 day is approximately .109% percent of your total life. At 40 years old it's something like .00000684% ...

re: Real Estate Etiquette - eitek1
I would promptly tell both of them that I wasn't doing business with either of them. Also, 6% might have been good before the internet because the Real Estate agents had a monopoly on information and controlled all aspects of the deal. Now most folks find their own property and tell the agent ...

re: Who gives money to the homeless? - eitek1
I work in the CBD in New Orleans. One day I worked late and walked to my parking garage. I saw a brand new car pull up. It was nicer than what I was driving at the time. Out of the car gets a ton of 20ish year old kids that "look" homeless but obviously aren't. They have their dogs with them as ...

re: Would you ever consider dating a fat chick with a good personality? - eitek1
If you are perfectly compatible do it. She could always drop a few pounds. You may never find someone like her again. I've been married for 23 years. When I met my wife she was built amazingly. After years of fertility treatments she weighed 220 pounds. She was still an awesome person but she wa...
