re: I would like to spend 30k on a new car - LSUtigerME
[quote]quote: Accord (got one I could sell you, 2014) you don't like?[/quote] I actually really like it. Had a 2013, totaled it, and bought the same one in 2014. I can also say it is safe. It's really a good car, great power (V6), good gas mileage (27 mpg average), and great amenities (safety fea...

re: How do I lose/firm up stomach area - LSUtigerME
Diet is key to losing weight. And as mentioned, can't target, so it takes time. Congrats on the weight loss. At 5'6", you have a ways to go. Don't focus on areas/visual, focus on progress and strength/fitness/feeling. The scale isn't always your friend either, as gaining muscle will not cause you...

re: Do our smartphones "listen" to us even when we're not on them? - LSUtigerME
Isn't that the basis of the whole "Hey Google" or "Hey Siri" assistant on the latest editions of phones? You simply speak a key word and it actively responds, meaning it is constantly listening. I don't necessary believe it is listening and adapting ads to your speak, but functionality is certain...

re: Excel Formula Question - Vlookup? Match?...other? - LSUtigerME
If you are simply trying to match the SSN from list #2 with the name from list #1, then vlookup is your answer. However, since your list has names on the left, you'll have to use Match and Index. Vlookup can only look right (or you can rearrange list #1). I'm not at an excel computer so can't pos...

re: P90X-3/T-25 in-game thread - LSUtigerME
I stuck with the plan. It was designed that way, and it seems to work. Are you only doing it 5 days/week? What are you doing sat/sun? I personally think yoga is pretty important. It's a semi-rest day and incorporates a lot of muscle groups you don't normally use. For X3, this is Yoga/Pilates/I...

[quote] Has anyone on here done both the original P90X and X3? For building muscle, which program is better for that? [/quote] Of those two, P90X. X3 is much more cardio focus IMO and incorporates a lot more core work. I think X3 will improve your strength, but it won't build as much mass....
