re: Hubig’s Pies scouting report: where are they? - NOLATiger163
[quote][quote]This is absolutely an issue. For whatever reason, the filling is extremely watery. Legit bit into three so far that drenched me.

re: Screw Pepsi and judge nanny gate: Leonard vs Pepsico - NOLATiger163
Sounds like you know [i]juuuuust[/i] enough about the law to not realize how ignorant you are.

Logged in to upvote this. The big question in my mind is, to what extent is Biden so out of it that he actually believes the nonsense he's saying, versus to what extent is he just the liar he's long been shown to be? [quote]“I think they have a responsibility to act in the interest of their co...

And it is legal in the large majority of states for a sixty-year-old (yes, 6-0) dude to do it with an under-eighteen-year-old girl. So in many states, a sixteen- or seventeen-year-old can legally have sex (and thereby potentially have a kid) with an adult or get married, but not open a checking acco...
