re: Football Tradition Fund Increase - armytiger96
[quote]I thought the highest increase was 12%. Why was yours different?[/quote] Because the statement by LSU was complete bull shite.

re: An attempt at a realistic portrayal of what WW1 artillery bombardment sounded like - armytiger96

re: An attempt at a realistic portrayal of what WW1 artillery bombardment sounded like - armytiger96

re: Will technology replace the real estate agent? - armytiger96
[quote]We have a vastly different definition of free, the buyer is the one paying both sides.[/quote] I disagree. In my opinion market price is mutually exclusive of the realtors commission. When the buyer makes an offer on the house they offer the price they are willing to pay for the hous...

re: Will technology replace the real estate agent? - armytiger96

re: Help me out with Disneyland planning - armytiger96
We did this a few years ago when our kids were 5, 2, and 1. If your budget allows, I would recommend staying onsite to take advantage of the early entry for onsite guests. We stayed at the Grand California which is connected to DCA. This was great because my wife would take the girls for a nap whi...
