[quote]If the south won the war the history books would have been much different. History is written and skewed by the victors. The south would have ended slavery in 10 years. [/quote] I don't believe this for a minute. Read the [link=(http://www.civil-war.net/pages/mississippi_declaration.asp...

re: Oral-B vs. Sonicare - Thorny
I've used both, and though I prefer Sonicare, both are better than regular brushing. Oral-B is really designed to be a one tooth at a time operation. So, you deliberately move down the line. That took some time to get used to. It did a good job of cleaning teeth. The Sonicare movement encourag...

re: Post Something Funny (movie clip, gif, picture, etc) - Thorny
Focusing on the cross in the middle distorts how your eye sees the two images. Your brain starts mixing them together, so they start looking very distorted. If you focus on one side of the images, you can see that they are slightly modified. By focusing on the cross, you end up seeing the modific...

re: Have you ever won the lottery? - Thorny
No, but I did find the "Imposter M&M's" once. About half of the candies in one bag were gray. I won a six-month supply of M&M's, which was really 180 coupons for single pack M&M's, all of which would expire about 6 months after I received them. I saved a few of the coupons for posterity. ...

re: Buttigieg calls for an end to the EC... you better rise up and get the word out.. - Thorny
They are still ~90 votes short of that taking effect, and I seriously doubt any majority rural states will join. And, if Trump were to win the popular vote in 2020, you will see all of those laws repealed with haste. ...

re: Scientific American: NOLA screwed, new levee system obsolete in 4 years - Thorny
Perhaps, if we stopped spending hundreds of billions of dollars keeping the Mississippi River in it's easternmost channel ever, and instead allowed it to behave like a real delta instead of dropping river sediment off the continental shelf, we could start having a real solution to the salt water int...

re: Mulkey taking heat...is this warranted in your opinion... - Thorny
So, let me understand the sequence here: 1) Trump hasn't invited women's bball champions, either NCAA or WNBA. 2) Kim Mulkey calls him out on it in a backhanded way. 3) SJW writer is upset at Mulkey because she isn't mad enough at Trump. Sounds like somebody doesn't understand irony. I t...

re: Electoral College Compact question - Thorny
According to the popular vote website, almost all of the states that have enacted the compact did so by legislation and not a ballot initiative or popular vote. Only Massachusetts had an actual vote on the matter, and it may not have been binding in any way. Many states showed polling that said it w...

re: Any Teetotalers on the OT? - Thorny
Both my parents died of alcoholism. My mom had a major life-threatening liver failure during my HS senior exams and my dad was on a business trip. I had to get her to the hospital, which was difficult because she was hallucinating and paranoid. I am blessed to dislike the taste of most alcohols ...

re: LSU Needs To Make A Public Decision On Wade ASAP - Thorny
[quote]What does waiting until after the trial solve? (From An LSU Perspective, Not Wades) [/quote] Waiting keeps the potential of keeping Wade possible. I'm a Wade defender, but there is enough there to make me nervous. If at this point we were to say, "We will keep Wade no matter what",...

re: Eliminating the 3 point shot - Thorny

re: Why should Wade have anticipated his conversation would be recorded - Thorny
This article came out after Smart announced his commitment to LSU in July of 2017. It seems like the call on the wiretap was right before that commitment (and not long after Wade was hired). It appears that Wade is frustrated having to deal with Froman's demands for Smart. Smart was considered a ...

[quote]Went to the Wisconsin game way back when in ABQ and same thing happened- refs let them play[/quote] Yeah, but that was different. Wisconsin was running pick/screens at us all night long. I swear they didn't shoot on any possession until they ran Stromile into a goon setting a pick (many mo...

re: Bruce Pearl - Thorny
Pearl was not directly implicated. Assistant coach Chuck Person, who is an Auburn legend and a player on their last Elite Eight team, was arrested and subsequently fired. I think he plead guilty 10 days ago. Unfortunately, Pearl was still under the show-cause penalty when we were hiring Johnny Jo...
