re: How many times have you worked on your car in an Advance Auto Parts parking lot? - TU Rob
[quote]and replace the negative cable. There is no reason that it should be that difficult to change a freakin battery. It took me about an hour. [/quote] Well a battery is like a 15-20 minute job max. Changing cables should take longer. I rarely change them in the parking lot, but have a few t...

re: Is the Toyota 4Runner now a chick car? - TU Rob
The manufacturers know what sells. It is why the Wrangler, 4Runner, and other similar vehicles that were once marketed as rugged and highly capable now feature more cush rides and creature comforts, with a 200% bump in price from 20 years ago. Woman wants the shiny new ride to take shopping and ki...

re: Mizuno wave inspire 13 or Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17? - TU Rob
I've had two pair of Adrenaline, and just got my second pair of Ravenna. I switched to the Ravenna 5 and like it over the Adrenaline, which is saying a lot. I also have moderate overpronation, and both the Adrenaline and Ravenna are great for that. ...

re: Question about Bobsled - TU Rob
[quote]I figure the extra weight is for gaining more speed over the downward slope of the course.[/quote] Yeah, but there are weight restrictions. I read somewhere that the sled/sleigh must weigh within a range when empty, and there is a cap with the loaded weight as well. Max weight with the c...

re: Question about Bobsled - TU Rob
[quote] Sounds like a job I could do[/quote] My wife was laughing at me when I suggested I could do that the other night. Then she watches a few of the starts and I point out that I’m built just like most of those guys. I think she came around eventually. ...

re: Looking for a simple Rum drink - TU Rob
[quote]A mojito takes all of 1 minute to make [/quote] Yep, especially if you already have simple syrup. I usually make Mint Juleps for the Derby every year, and grab a bottle of rum to make Mojitos with too. You really don't have to do much to mint leaves to muddle them. It is a very easy rec...

re: Best type of Brooks running shoe? - TU Rob
I've used Adrenaline and Ravenna. But I need more support due to overpronation. I had two different pair of Adrenaline, I think the 12 then the 13. I switched to Ravenna a while back. I need to get a new pair, mine are pretty much done for by now....

re: Grade NBC Sports Coverage of The Olympics So Far - TU Rob
Yeah the time difference seems to be a major screwup this time. They want to show figure skating from 7-10 CST every night. It wasn't that bad in the last summer Olympics because Rio was only two hours ahead of EST. But they should be able to show every event live on the app. I tried to watch som...

re: Paying bills online- convenience fees - TU Rob
Most everything I pay is online. There are two that do not allow auto drafts of CC. They will draft your bank account with no added charges, but try to use your debit or credit card and there is a fee. I have my internet, water, and gas auto drafted from my CC. I have to manually go online to pa...

re: Anyone use razors from a Shave Club? Trying to decided if they are worth a try. - TU Rob
I tried Dollar Shave Club years ago. I had the 4 blade razor. It was decent, about the same as a Mach 3 and cheaper than the Fusion. Their shave butter was worth it. Then I grew a beard and eventually cancelled the service. I was only shaving my neck twice a week so the supply lasted a while, a...

re: Steak Presentation At Restaurants - TU Rob
[quote]They do it at Peter Lugers in NYC. It's one of the steak house pioneers of the country. Lot's of people try and copy them. It is done at lots of high end steak houses.

Privacy screens on monitors - TU Rob
In my job I have access to sensitive information, and they're going to soon require privacy screens on our monitors. Are any of these better or worse than others? I have dual 22 inch widescreens, and I think they're only requiring that we have it on one screen. Kind of odd, but maybe they're just...

re: Cobb County is closing libraries so it can keep paying its Braves stadium debt service - TU Rob
The public libraries where I live are all in a county cooperative. So I can check out a book from the Vestavia library, and return it downtown, or any other in the county. There is also a huge online database of books I can check out, up to 10 at a time, and read on the Kindle/ipad/iphone. This i...

re: What will sports arenas look like in 10 years? - TU Rob
I used to have season tickets to Troy. Part of the reason I gave them up was having kids. The other is how easy it is to watch every game now. Even when I had Cable, to watch all the Troy games I had to pay for a season pass to stream games through the athletic department. And this was on a comp...
