re: Turns out the Michigan floods were failed bureaucracy - Thorny
[quote]Y'all need to get your stories straight. Australia's record fires were climate change. Too much rain, not enough rain; which the hell is it? Plus, a single event is weather, like record cold snaps or record snow falls, according to you loons. Pick one and stick with it.[/quote] You don't g...

re: Five day old bait left in ice chest. - Thorny
Okay, I will grant this is not exactly the same as OP, but it's pretty related. When I was growing up, Dad and his brother grew cattle, and about twice a year they would butcher some steers and each family would get a side of beef and sell the rest. Dad had a chest freezer he had gotten when his ...

[quote]Why the hell would you pay taxes maintain a 15k acre ranch that you can accomplish with a feed lot? Why every cattle farmer should just convert to feed lots? [/quote] Because, as bad as the taxes can be on that 15K acre ranch, the costs associated with cattle in feedlots are even more. ...

re: Worst call in sec history... - Thorny
[quote]Would the ball have been knocked away even if Doucet wasn't tackled? Probably so. But the illegal contact CLEARLY happened before the tip and the officials chose to deem the penalty irrelevant because it ultimately had no effect on the play (i.e. the ball still would have been knocked away).[...

re: What brand of power tools do you roll with? - Thorny
Mostly, I have been going with the new V20 Craftsman for cordless tools. I find they have the widest selection of power and garden tools that fit that platform. But, that was before I really got mad at China for the beer virus. Sigh....

re: Who gets college game day and the night game week 2 - Thorny
Texas @ LSU is the probably the biggest OOC game any SEC team is hosting. I don't see CBS passing on getting that one and putting it as their first night game. Similar to ND @ UGA a couple of years ago. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: Can Trump win this election with every media and social shutting against him. - Thorny
I think Trump is really vulnerable. All the Democrats have to do is nominate a candidate who can clearly and concisely provide his/her vision and preparedness to lead the country. Yeah, forget that. Trump wins big....

re: Came across this article - Thorny
Always remember that whatever some NFL scout or exec is saying in the month before the draft is likely to have some disinformation in it to try to convince other teams to act in a way to help themselves. Now, I don't think he's wrong about Hurts. Jalen is a great college player, but I'm not sure ...

re: What is the greatest first quarter lsu fball performance you can remember? - Thorny
Best: Auburn 2003. Had an event and couldn't watch the beginning of the game. Got into the car and turned on the radio just in time to hear Doug Moreau say, "And if Auburn isn't careful, LSU's gonna score 80 points tonight." LSU had just scored to go up 21-0. LSU had also stopped Auburn on a 4th and...
