re: Baton Rouge lawyer gets 20 yrs for kiddie porn - LSUFanHouston

re: Chris Owens is still alive? Pic included. WYHI? I guess... - LSUFanHouston
I'm pretty sure she still performs. I had no idea she was 89 years old. I always thought she was more of a vaudeville act than a true looker, but those bolt ons did look good on her. But she's got a lot of road miles on her, no doubt. ...

re: Kamala Harris: Mike Pence Refusing to Meet Women Alone Is ‘Outrageous - LSUFanHouston
Pence's stance is absolutely outrageous, but that's because it shouldn't be needed. It's only needed because people like Harris have supporters that make false accusations about men. And people like Harris have supporters that will have no issue destroying a man's reputation even if the accusation i...

[quote]Why not assume the NCAA is actually culpable in a possible cover up and Wade is being advised to not let the NCAA know what he knows? [/quote] So WW is some deep state agent working on behalf of the feds to infiltrate the NCAA, so the DOJ can lower the boom at a later date? Look, I lik...

re: College Poverty Stories - LSUFanHouston
We used to cook mac and cheese in the microwave, this was before the days of the easy mac cups. We would get a tupperware container, fill it with water and the noodles, nuke it for a few minutes, then mix it in with water and the cheese mix. Then, heat up those pink hot dogs in the microwave, then c...
