re: New Orleans government is so incompetent it cannot even buy a boat. - NOLALGD
[quote]Hang on. Landrieu didn't push s takeover. After the CCC tolls were voted out, DOTD threw a hissy fit and said they were no longer going to run the nola ones. So they put the contract out to bid. No one bid. So the state was like F it we will just shut it down. Finally RTA at the last minute s...

re: The Myth of the Jaguar Nation and HBCUs In General - NOLALGD
[quote]Sam Houston only played 4 home games in 2012. That was the season they made their consecutive championship game appearance. They played both Baylor and TAMU that year and probably floated the athletic department for the following 3 years doing so. It's just not all that uncommon for small...

re: Do you move to an empty row in an underbooked flight? - NOLALGD
I fly about once a month out of NOLA. About 50% of my flights are totally full, 40% are not totally full so if you're lucky you might get an empty middle seat, and maybe 20% are the magical ones where you should definitely end up with the middle seat open, and possibly an entire row. ...

re: How did people grow up in the south without air conditioning? - NOLALGD
[quote]up until 80s many schools didn't have ac[/quote] Honest, I'm surprised more people in this thread didn't have access to AC, and definitely central AC, especially people who grew up in the country. Admittedly my folks were poor growing up, but I'm guessing it was at least the early-mid 80s ...

re: First time season ticket holder Q&A - NOLALGD
1. Generally a few weeks before the season starts, like someone said should be available soon on seatgeek. 2. For most people no, however I have friends who drive in from Houma area, northshore, BR, etc., in that case it might be worth it. 3. 5:00 to 6:30, have to go thru main security check f...

re: How did people grow up in the south without air conditioning? - NOLALGD
Neither grandparents had central AC, woke up in the morning, played video games till it started to get really hot around 10 am, then went outside played like normal kids till it got dark. Occasionally sat in living room/or the one room in the house with the big window unit. All other rooms had ...

re: Jeremy Clarkson explores the modern fascination with bicycle lanes - NOLALGD
[quote]Y'all keep dishonestly phrasing it as exercise only. Plenty of people would use their bikes to commute too[/quote] Definitely.

re: Jeremy Clarkson explores the modern fascination with bicycle lanes - NOLALGD
We should definitely lower speed limits in both cities and in neighborhoods. No reason why anyone needs to ever go more than 25 mph down a truly residential street....

re: Jeremy Clarkson explores the modern fascination with bicycle lanes - NOLALGD
I was going to stay out of this thread because I've been a bike commuter in a big east coast city, it was awesome. At the time I wouldn't have been able to afford to drive to work, simply due to the cost of parking. Anyway, what!!! [quote]The cost to the developer was $15,000,000.00. A single...

re: Why do athletes put JR on the back of their uniform? - NOLALGD
Why shouldn't a player get to put "their legal last name" on their jersey? Outside of Sr, everyone I know who is a Jr, II, III, etc., that is part of their given,legal name on their birth certificate. If you find someone that is making it up, then I will agree with you. ...

re: Why do athletes put JR on the back of their uniform? - NOLALGD
Uhhh, 99.9% of the time a suffix is part of someone's legal name (noted on legal documents, driver's license, passport, etc.) unlike a prefix. This is silly. ...

re: My suit game is weak - NOLALGD
95% of the time the key to looking good in a suit has nothing to do with whether the suit is handmade in Italy or bought on sale from JOS Banks/Mens Warehouse. 1) Buy the correct size suit 2) Buy the correct style/cut of suit for your bodytype 3) Get it tailored, preferably from a local tailo...

re: Charcoal or Gas grill - NOLALGD
Late to the party, I have a wood/charcoal vertical smoker, a weber gas grill, and a weber kettle, I love having all three. If you want to mainly do veggies, burgers, steaks, etc, anything that needs less than an hour to cook, a gas grill is much easier to use and much less work. If you want ...
