re: NBA Free Agency Thread | Chicago trying to sign Jabari Parker - MarcusQuinn
If you take a big pay cut to joIn a team that’s already capable of winning it all without you, and has, you are essentially buying a trophy. If they are all All-Stars, winning means less and no single player’s contribution matters that much. I wonder if any of the original, core Warriors would e...

re: Acne Pills for Kid Cost $1,200 for 30 pills. - MarcusQuinn
I went to the dermatologist about 2 years ago. Some bumps and redness on my forehead. Wrote me two prescriptions, which came from a Texas pharmacy via Fed Ex. It had an invoice with it for $1,200. Weeks later I got a statement from my insurance for $40 or something. Let the insurance hocus pocus pla...

[quote]require some time of work in the state[/quote] Dealbreaker. How long will you require people to stay and what would be the consequence? Life intervenes. If I want, or need, to move because of health, family, etc. is the state going to hold me hostage for $50k? The Road Home program afte...

re: Louisiana legislators compromise to fully fund TOPS - MarcusQuinn
TOPS money is just used to party for free for a year or get a degree and immediately move... to Texas. And/or buy a car. That’s it. It’s a government handout (to families in the state that have paid taxes the last 20 years) that nets zero in return. It’s a waste of money and all outcomes are bad. ...

re: Tween and early teens with smartphones - MarcusQuinn
[quote]She also isn't allowed to have any social media accounts. [/quote] The HS kids use social media to share notes and work on homework in groups. There are no paper party invitations, just posts. Rides, events, school news, etc. Little is planned in advance because they don’t have to. They co...

re: Question about relationships, economic advantage of one party, and chores - MarcusQuinn
If you are married and the income increases, it increases for both of you. If the chores decrease, they decrease for both of you. Over time things balance out in ways you likely can’t imagine. One day she may be spoon feeding your bed ridden father while you are stuck at the office. Those are the mo...

re: JR implies it was Lues fault - MarcusQuinn
It’s all on JR. Lue was thinking the same thing we were. He’s going to shoot. He’s going to pass. WTF? James signaled for a TO with about 2 seconds left. That’s when it was obvious what was happening. If Lue calls time out immediately after the rebound, everyone would say he blew JRs easy put back a...

re: Is this fulfilling for KD? - MarcusQuinn
My two cents. He’s desperate to be liked and admired. He said and did all the right things with the Thunder to the point it seemed calculated. I think that insecurity is what sent him to the Warriors. Everyone loves a winner. But instead of adding to his legacy, he got throttled by fans. Then he wen...

re: On which airline does the OT prefer to travel for domestic routes? - MarcusQuinn
I really don’t see much difference between most of them. Spirit has a different business model, but the fleet is pretty new and if you do your homework and know the rules going in, you can save a few bucks. Did it once and won’t likeky do it again, but they don’t suck as bad as most say. Allegiant m...

re: 30 years ago today, a Boeing 737 made an emergency landing on a levee in NO East.. - MarcusQuinn
The nearly brand new aircraft was the problem. They were flying through a storm (A storm they probably shouldn’t have been flying in). The engines took in too much moisture and failed. They had to redesign or retrofit the engines to correct that problem. Not sure specifics, but am pretty sure it was...

[quote]Schools are teaching to the test and these kids take dozens of practice tests. No surprise this seems to be happening more often [/quote] It’s a shame.

re: NBA Playoffs Thread 5/14: WCF | Boomshockalocka's Rockets vs WarSlamEagle's Warriors - MarcusQuinn
I dislike so much about both these teams. I’m the last guy to focus on the trivial crap and refuse watch a game and usually the first to call it out as BS. Or at least I was. I’m more annoyed than entertained. I quit watching. Wah wah. Whatever. I’m going to fix the table on my porch. ...
