re: Questions for the mask people - GentleJackJones
We've all read mixed-reviews about masks and their effectiveness. Honestly, I'm not too sure they help; however, I don't think it hurts, nor do I see any negatives in wearing them. More so, if wearing a mask is able to keep businesses open and people employed, then I'm all for it. ETA: My job ...

re: Courtyard Brewery is mad at y’all - GentleJackJones
I’m not familiar with this brewery and their business strategy (distribution vs. on-site consumption and growler/crowler sales). If the brewery’s business model is largely based on on-site consumption, which most breweries are, then I certainly understand his frustrations. However, I certainly w...

re: Which has less of a plot: Fast Times at Ridgemont or Big Lebowski - GentleJackJones
Seriously? The Big Lewbowski was pretty pointless, and outside of a few moments, it wasn't even that funny. Fast Times actually touched on some sensitive, real points that adolescents deal with when growing up - i.e., Stacy ultimately being ditched by Ron, Damone and Rat, two friends, that ultima...

[quote]Random fact. The guy that had his throat yanked out was one of the doomed space shuttle pilots in Armageddon. [/quote] He grew up in Newport, Tennessee - the Smoky Mountains. Moonshine country. That's a very poor and impoverished area. Not much goes in or comes out of that area. Pretty co...

re: Roadhouse on AMC right now - GentleJackJones
It's sad how far today's society has deviated from the greatness that is [i]Roadhouse.[/i] All of the drinking, fighting, sex, blues music from the Jeff Healey band...no way that movie gets made nowadays. It would, without doubt, offend someone. That said, it's phenomenal and a cinema masterpiece...

re: Where will the name changes in pro sports stop? - GentleJackJones
Not pro sports related, but I’m still curious as to how UL-Lafayette’s “Ragin Cajuns” and Notre Dame’s “Fighting Irish” survive this. Both Can be perceived as negative connotations to those two communities and cultures. ...

If no fans are allowed - tailgating? - GentleJackJones
Assuming that fans will not be allowed at the games, do you think that would stop fans from tailgating on gamedays? Certainly, it wouldn't be to the extent as a regular gameday; however, I can see students and locals still coming out to tailgate and watch the game on their TVs. Thoughts?...
