re: Rutgers swings its dick, hits Ruston - sparkinator
Absolutely. This could have been a ULL type media debacle. Ruston and the Rutgers R just didn’t get sympathetic media coverage. Rutgers really dodged a bullet by handling it the way they did and not getting called out on it. They are well within their legal rights to force Ruston to change ...

re: Rutgers swings its dick, hits Ruston - sparkinator
[quote] Always wondered how Rutgers found out about this. Ruston isn’t a nationally known program like Mater Dei or Bishop Gorman[/quote] They saw drone footage of the tornado damage in Ruston. Supposedly saw it posted on Facebook. In the footage you can see the R on Rustons football field. Imme...

re: Forbes college rankings out: Tulane at 106, LSU at 212, Tech at 397 - sparkinator
[quote] Absolutely. No one wants their cow to be gored, but those institutions are solely creators of debt. ULM has the state’s only atmospheric science program and the only public pharmacy program. Don’t GAF about the unrankedness.[/quote] Then those programs should be moved to anothe...

re: Since 1966, 1,196 people have died from Mass Shootings(wash Post) - sparkinator
[quote]I'm pointing out that people toss around this notion of "needing" a gun for the home and that has no basis in the data. [/quote] Criminals fearing civilian gun ownership/possession is a deterrent, regardless if I ever use a gun for self-defense. ...

re: I drove from Dallas to Vegas in one day last week, alone. - sparkinator
20 hours on a motorcycle. Tucson, Arizona to Ruston. 1350 miles. I could have made it a lot quicker, but damn it was hard to get back on that back after every stop. That was probably my 10th day in row riding. ...

re: Big Bang theory wrong? Star older than Universe discovered - threat of ‘scientific crisis’ - sparkinator
God will never be proved or disproved by science. That’s not how it works. It’s still based on faith. I’ve got no problem with science and scientific theory. You’d have to be ignorant to have a problem with scientists trying to figure out how the world around us works. And to crow about theories th...

re: Big Bang theory wrong? Star older than Universe discovered - threat of ‘scientific crisis’ - sparkinator
Scientists/astronomers are having to reevaluate a lot of their beliefs. Supermassive black holes in the center of each universe that they can’t explain how they formed. According to black hole theories, the universe is t old enough for them to form and be as big as they are. The universe hasn’t been...

re: Is Like a Rock the greatest TV ad campaign of all time? - sparkinator
They threw a blank check at Bruce Springsteen to get Born in the USA and couldn’t get it. That’s when the settled on Like A Rock. Not sure if Seger wrote it for the ad but decided to release it first or not. Sounds like an ad from the start. ...

re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood opening day check in thread ***Spoilers Inevitable*** - sparkinator
I loved that Cliff went toe to toe with Bruce Lee. Cliff is a definite badass and somebody that in reality could whip Lees ass. Hell, we still debate that here. We had a 50+ page Lee vs Tyson thread awhile back. Lee was theoretically paired against Cassius Clay in the movie and Cliff being a badass ...

re: Pellet grills - sparkinator
I’m looking at a pit boss 820 or pb Austin 1000 for a wedding gift. Will they grill as easy as they smoke? Was also looking at a cagun fryer grill, but the pitboss looks more versatile and bigger for the money. But I’ve never fooled with a pellet grill/smoker. ...

re: Early birthday present. - sparkinator
Simmons had the camo in their tent sale ad for $450. I found this one in Black for $325 on Cheaper than Dirt and just couldn’t pass it up. There are a lot of good calibers out there now for primitive weapon hunting. Just got to find one that you like. ...

[quote] Remember to have the mounts torque down with locktight thread lube.[/quote] Definitely. Stopped by Basspro took look at one and they didn’t have any CVA Scouts. Said they were back ordered and slow to ship this year. So I found a pretty good price on one and got it early. ...

Best Styx at Hirsch in 78. Great show. U2 in Houston at the Toyota center. U2 at Superdome. Garbage at the Fillmore. Sturgill at the Saenger. Steve Winwood at HOB. Worse U2 at Cowboy stadium. Sound was terrible. Muse opened and they weren’t nearly as bad sound wise. ...
