re: Anyone ever leave the cap off your old spice deodorant? - porter8

re: First Significant U.S. Snowfall of the Season Possible This Weekend - porter8
Certainly can't prove it. It is interesting that the global temperature avg has increased since we started measuring. But you're right, it's probably just a trend. No chance it has anything to do with the fact carbon emissions increased a ton during that time period. 150 years ago- hor...

re: First Significant U.S. Snowfall of the Season Possible This Weekend - porter8
This global warming debate is so entertaining to me. I don't know what's happening either way. I think it's hilarious that people just dismiss the consensus of people who study this for a living by saying it's just a climate trend based solely off the fact that we have only recorded weather f...

re: North Korea missile launch detected by Pentagon - porter8
I seriously doubt they only have one nuke. In fact with the facilities they have (huge warehouses of centrifuges used for enriching uranium), they probably have a good bit by now. They may only have one small enough to fit on a icbm, but if they have one, more to come...as seen with every other nati...

re: North Korea missile launch detected by Pentagon - porter8
Yeah, I mean I understand what you're saying. It's probably too risky at this point or they know something we don't. A lot of experts really think it's too late to do much but look at them as a sovereign nation. Check out the podcast on This American Life, the guy in there explains much better t...

China could take them out, but Seoul would be destroyed in the process. NK has wall of guns embedded into a mountain and the guns are only exposed when they fire. I'm sure NK has many plan b,c,d,e....in case of a coup with how paranoid they are. Plus, as mentioned before, they don't want to deal...

re: North Korea missile launch detected by Pentagon - porter8
It changes everything. We will most likely have to back off of sanctions and invite them to table globally. Which is sickening with how that regime is run. They have nukes and are seen as unpredictable. Kim jung is crazy, but he's not stupid. This program of theirs has been run as well as any ...

I'm not sure about this one but the previous one they tested flew 7 times higher than the space station. YouTube video with demo of their previous launch. [link=(https://youtu.be/wFvGEYA2s_c)]LINK[/link] I think all the pop culture jokes of terrible launches has really blinded a lot of pe...

re: If baseball games were once a week .. - porter8
Fun to think about... Offense would be way down with basically only the top 100 pitchers in the world seeing any significant innings. It would definitely shorten games. Payroll would decrease significantly with 74 less home games. A pitcher like kershaw would probably make 50% of a teams sala...

re: Hardest throwing pitcher we've had at LSU - porter8
Barry Manuel was my high school baseball coach(2004). He is a very humble man but of course we asked. At the time he said he held the record as he was clocked at 101. I've never seen that in writing but he was not one to brag....

You've been doing this for 6 years? I feel like you do not understand retail very well for having been it for that long. No, something like this would not have pissed me off unless it was a controlled drug. For this situation I would have gone by the fool me once, Shame on you fool me twic...

You're missing the point. You said yourself you make way more than a 100k a year..how is this worth your time for a harmless script? Check her purchase history and if she doesn't have a history, give it to her and move on. Geez, I'd hate to be around you if there was a real issue....

I've just never seen a scam for singulair. It's $20 max with out insurance. Did she have a history at the store of this type of behavior already? That'd be the only way I'd waste any energy arguing over singulair. ...

You must be a young pharmacist. We are talking BP meds and asthma medication being mixed up? What could possibly be her motive for wanting more of that and lying to get it? The only possible motive I see is she couldn't afford it. Why not just offer to refill it and see if she will ...

re: Atlanta students cite 'Falcons depression,' other somber excuses for tardiness - porter8
Today was a great day to be a saints fan living in Atlanta. I had an uncontrollable smirk all day long and there was little to no traffic because I guess everyone skipped work and school. Best Monday in a long time. ...
