re: Anybody ever seen a UFO or been abducted by aliens? - eitek1
I saw this one evening on hwy 19 just north of Slaughter. [link=(http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-488531)]LINK[/link] It was approximately 300-400 feet off the ground moving about 30mph from my right to my left. It passed right over the top of me. I slowed down and rolled down my window and it wa...

I posted your incredibly insightful post on facebook and gave you a "shout out" crediting you with that wisdom. I'll be interested to see if it gets shared enough for you to see it. Thanks...

[quote]Are you talking about the temporary pumps? The permanent pumps are rated at 12,600 cfs which is a good but more than the 10-11k cfs that pumps into the canal. Also the pumps at the lake end only come into play when the surge gates are closed.[/quote] Are you sure they are 12,600 Cubic fee...

re: When I grow up, I want to be a disabled veteran. - eitek1
My former squad leader came in to town out of the blue. I hadn't seen him in 26 years. He was in town for the Disabled American Veterans convention. He's a disabled verteran because he broke his hip in three places when his parachute collapsed on a jump. He walks with a limp. The hip isn't the...

re: Group assaults man during French Quarter robbery, police say - eitek1
Did you ever consider that the reason you don't "hear about it" is because it doesn't fit the narrative as opposed to the fact that it never happens? A police officers life was saved a few years ago on the corner of Joor and Greenwell Springs road by a concealed carry holder. It happens all the t...

re: Group assaults man during French Quarter robbery, police say - eitek1
Could you help me understand what "talk big" is in relation to concealed carry? I gave a plausible reason why you don't see concealed carry holders stopping these kind of crimes. Tourists probably don't carry and concealed carry isn't allowed in bars which stops 99% of the other folks in the q...

re: Group assaults man during French Quarter robbery, police say - eitek1
Some folks carry 100% of the time when they are out and about. Most tourist probably don't carry and locals don't go around the quarter when these things happen. It would be interesting if someone took out an add in the paper that said a local group of concealed carriers would start walking the q...

re: Any experiences with straight talk wireless? - eitek1
I've used Straight talk for years without issue. There's no way in hell I'd go back to AT&T now. I had the, for years and every moth my bill would be 10 bucks higher than it was supposed to be and I got tired of calling every month. I can't find a reason to do anything but use them....

After I got out of the Army my wife and I struggled quite a bit. I had exactly enough money for my bills down to the dollar. After I got paid we couldn't even go to McDonalds as a luxury. Once some unexpected expense came up and we ended up eating nothing but potatoes for two weeks. It's all w...

I know it's legal for you to own a RPG right now so that argument is out the window. I'm not sure about the nukes. The simple impractical, hard to get nature of them may have made legislation unnecessary. Personally I've not read a law that prohibits owneeship....
