re: LA Amendment results - leRev on 11/9/16 at 8:44 am
I voted for yes on 2. However, the no winning provides a silver lining to me. Since it stays within the legislature, the legislature can't avoid the unsustainable higher education system we currently have. They will be forced to fix the problem (hopefully). If Yes won, the school boards would raise ...

So far, the Big 12 is having a hard time getting into the CFB playoffs (see: 2014 TCU/Baylor and 2016 everyone). Might play a factor....

Go to training and press a button that brings up a menu to add a new pitch. I'm pretty sure it's square, but it says which button towards the bottom. Edit: it's triangle...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Derek Henry? Another Alabama NFL RB bust? yes/no? - leRev on 1/27/16 at 5:52 pm
He will still be able to make the same type of cuts he did in college. The guy isn't going to pack on 50 lbs the night he's drafted. Now, will those cuts still be as effective? Definitely not....

re: Do you oppose the death penalty because of innocent people being convicted? - leRev on 11/18/15 at 6:22 pm
I oppose the death penalty for three reasons: the first, everyone is innocent until proven guilty. To me, there is always a doubt that someone committed a crime. Besides video evidence, what other form of recorded proof can prove someone is 100% guilty? Unless the act of the crime was caught on came...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Why do some people value ideology over competency? - leRev on 8/13/15 at 4:11 pm
I don't think the two are mutually exclusive. For example, I like Ben Carson. Is he as experienced in governance as, say, Scott Walker? No. However, I believe more in his ideology and his leadership abilities than Scott Walker's. A good leader surrounds himself with great people. Ben Carson is a sma...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Hillary college plan, loan free tuition for all. Adds $350 BILLION in debt - leRev on 8/10/15 at 10:08 am
Yep. I could have gone to several more high profile schools and probably have gotten a much better education, but I wasn't stupid. So, I chose not to put myself in $200,000 of debt....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Hillary college plan, loan free tuition for all. Adds $350 BILLION in debt - leRev on 8/10/15 at 9:21 am
Any idea or plan for free college tuition, whether it is like this or loan forgiveness, aggravates the shite out of me. Suddenly, my well-thought-out decision to attend an affordable school so I can avoid debt turns into the worst decision of my entire life....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

I purchased the Shure SE215-CL earphones recently. I'm not an audiophile by any means, but I can definitely appreciate the fidelity of a nice pair of head/earphones. I think they are probably the best pair of earphones that I've listened to for <$100 (It's $99). I'd even say they are better than mos...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
