re: Who is more badass: John Wick, Brian Mills (Taken)or Jason Bourne? - NOLALGD
In their own respective fictional universes, Wick for sure. He kills with minimal effort and is immune to serious injury, even after a brutal fight he recovers in minutes/hours, minus a few scars. Bonus: If we are talking a character that could possibly exist in the real world and still do wha...

re: River pilots seeking pay raise to nearly $700,000 annually despite shipping decline - NOLALGD
Taxes are taxes. At that salary, payroll or contractor, they will be in the highest tax bracket regardless. Speaking off taxes... [quote]Yes. Pilots are considered [b]independent contractors for tax purposes[/b] [/quote] Wait what? Are they independent contractors to the state? Or to the "a...

re: River pilots seeking pay raise to nearly $700,000 annually despite shipping decline - NOLALGD
I mean lets call it what it is, a government supported union/functional monopoly (in a state that is right to work and generally hates unions) that practices exclusionary and discriminatory hiring practices. I mean imagine if any other group of unionized workers in the state tried anything like t...

re: Sound System and Sonos Question - NOLALGD
[quote]i agree w/ wise; the sub is key. keep an eye out; i see them under $500 all the time, esp. now that there's a newer model.[/quote] Thanks for the information. Is there anything about the older model worth avoiding?...

Sound System and Sonos Question - NOLALGD
Would love some advice and recommendations. We need a soundbar & sub to replace our current sub & soundbar on the TV in the living room. Not opposed to full surround but are ok with nice sub/soundbar. We would also like 2 decent speakers for elsewhere in the house, a bonus if we could take one outs...

re: All Relation Brewing in New Orleans set to close (possibly temporary/maybe forever) - NOLALGD
Many breweries locate in areas where there are no other attractions and minimal neighborhood support such as Urban South, Tin Roof (BR), Zony Mash, etc. I would understand your point if they were deep in Central City, say Phillip and Magnolia, but they were 2 blocks from St. Charles Avenue with...

re: All Relation Brewing in New Orleans set to close (possibly temporary/maybe forever) - NOLALGD
Their location was fine, easy to get to from almost anywhere in the City. Timing was bad, most local breweries need at least 6 months but probably a year before they really hit their stride and develop enough sustainable business. I'm 99% sure if it was a normal spring from St. Patty's Day to ...

re: St. Charles Tavern (NOLA) Closes for Good - NOLALGD
Its been quite a few years now but pretty sure every meal I've eaten there has been between 12 am and 10 am. And almost every time the events leading me there involved too much alcohol, not enough alcohol, partying too hard, trying to get laid, food before sex, food after sex, and maybe more than o...

re: Give me a good deadlift protocol to increase strength? - NOLALGD
[quote]Yeah I know at 45 I should start thinking about maintaining but it’s hard to stop wanting to lift more. [/quote] I think you can do both as you age. I don't interpret maintaining as not getting stronger, I think about it more as switching the focus from hitting new 1RMax to balancing goal...

re: Give me a good deadlift protocol to increase strength? - NOLALGD
Will also vouch for 5/3/1 as a great progression program with many different versions based on your goals. I also like the ability to set a target with realistic progressions you can adjust based on each cycle of the program. ...

re: Shreveport mayor announces US Senate bid - NOLALGD
Unless some other republican with statewide recognition jumps in the race Cassidy easily wins in the first round. Perkins run is likely about getting his name out their and developing a campaign infrastructure for a future election. Even under perfect circumstances a democrat without heavy BR and N...

re: What makes Americans drive mostly well and follow traffic laws.. while meanwhile in Asia.. - NOLALGD
For all the jokes, that intersection probably moves 10 times as much traffic as a similar sized intersection with traffic signals here in the states. And the traffic flow overall is generally better with much higher densities than most US cities. ...

re: WSM vs pellet grill - NOLALGD
Many, if not most people won't be able to tell any difference, so the convivence factor of pellet (and electric, and to some degree ceramic) makes it a great choice for a lot of people. However, for those who know it is a different story. At the same time convenience and time matter too. In a p...

re: Adam Klink 4:56 mile & 500# back squat - NOLALGD
This combo is pretty amazing and no one should downplay it. Most decently athletic 200 lb men could train their entire lives and never hit a legit 500 lb squat. However, I do believe many decently athletic men in their physical prime could run a sub 5 minute mile. Catch is training for it (en...

re: Friday Ellis(Ind) beats Jamie Mayo(Dem) Outright for Mayor of Monroe - NOLALGD
[quote]For many years Mayo had a great relationship with North Monroe. Partly from his own actions and partly from an "I'm not Lumumba" effect. The Farrakhan shitshow was his attempt to insulate himself from criticism from black leaders that he only cared about North Monroe. He thought he could play...

re: Can we have a conversation as to why Baton Rouge is such a dangerous place to drive? - NOLALGD
Yes some bad drivers, but also bad planning and bad infrastructure. Think about the main routes to/from downtown...if you are going east and somewhat north where BR originally grew in NBR and also along Florida, Government, North into mid-city, it half way works. However, the City grew South, ...

re: Can someone seriously explain Louis Farrakhan? - NOLALGD
Yep, the minister has been toxic for years. 99% of black folks think Farrakhan is crazy and most of the black establishment goes out of their way to avoid him. He had a brief moment of relevancy in the mid/late 90s with the million man march, but that was only because he made a back door dea...
