The problem with the modern world is that there is nothing left to explore. - Slippy on 1/15/17 at 8:54 pm
I mean except space, and money and distance make that impossible right now. The world is now small. There are no more unknown places. No foreign lands to be discovered. No mysterious wilderness to be settled by brave and hearty people. No natural resources to be exploited, or fortunes to be m...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (44)
For $25, I made my 15 y/o receiver Bluetooth compatible. - Slippy on 1/15/17 at 8:23 pm
I bought a house before Katrina that had internal wiring and speakers all over the place. I was not an audiophile, but I bought a Sony receiver powerful enough to feed the whole house. Then life happened and my kids grew up and I went years without playing music on my home stereo. Well I just ...

Seriously, when does Saban retire? - Slippy on 1/10/17 at 6:49 am
He'll be 66 this year. Last night was his chance to tie Bear's record, and he fell short. Now he still needs 2 titles to break it. Gonna be very hard, if not impossible. Loses much of that defense next year. Does not have a championship QB. Sark is not Kiffin. Honestly, after Clemson went u...

Y'all ready to pay more in gas taxes? - Slippy on 1/8/17 at 11:08 am
According to this, roads and bridge maintenance/construction needs a $700 million annual infusion. As someone who drives the roads all over this state in my job, I can attest to how bad things are. I'll pay it if I know where it is being spent. Shit's not gonna fix itself. [link=(http://www.th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (21)

Anybody have friends or family who had a knee replacement? - Slippy on 12/28/16 at 6:42 pm
Dr told me today I am bone on bone and possibly less than 10 years away from one. Blew my ACL playing for the semi-mighty Captain Shreve Gators a few decades ago. It took awhile, but the arthritis finally got me. I want to know if this is gonna end my sex life....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (22)
re: Worst way to die? - Slippy on 12/27/16 at 6:19 pm
I read that drowning is pretty quick. My BIL drowned 25 years ago. I hope it was quick. ETA: Cats instinctively kill by biting the throat of their prey, thus it's usually over quickly. Bears don't kill that way. They might sit on you and gnaw your leg off while you remain fully conscious....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Worst way to die? - Slippy on 12/27/16 at 6:15 pm
My daughter and I were discussing this on our way home this evening. While I generally don't fear death, I greatly fear being mauled to death by a bear. She went with alligator. I told her I thought I could get away from an alligator. But a grizzly bear? You're not going anywhere, chief. J...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (54)
Smoking a ham in a MasterBuilt electric. - Slippy on 12/18/16 at 5:16 pm
My contribution to Christmas dinner at my mother-in-laws will be a ham. We usually pick one up at the Honey Baked, but I want to smoke one in my new MB 40" cabinet. I'm thinking about a nice cured bone-in, 3-5 hours according to the internets. Any special suggestions? Am I going to ruin Christ...

How about a religion board? - Slippy on 12/15/16 at 9:44 am
I mean since all discussion of religion is prohibited. You confine all religious talk to this board and let the atheists fight it out in the octagon with the believers. Take no prisoners. It would be fun to watch, and I'm sure minds would be changed through reasoned debate....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (11)
Has anybody been watching this Leah Remini show about Scientology on A&E? - Slippy on 12/14/16 at 6:37 pm
It's unreal. She was in the cult her entire life, and now she's exposing the shite out of it. These stories of people being separated from their families, and the retribution they experience when they try to leave, are hair raising. And the money they have to spend is to obtain spiritual perfectio...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (26)
