re: NBA Free Agency Thread | Chicago trying to sign Jabari Parker - MarcusQuinn on 7/2/18 at 8:05 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Acne Pills for Kid Cost $1,200 for 30 pills. - MarcusQuinn on 6/30/18 at 11:41 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Louisiana legislators compromise to fully fund TOPS - MarcusQuinn on 6/26/18 at 9:00 am
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Question about relationships, economic advantage of one party, and chores - MarcusQuinn on 6/6/18 at 3:55 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: JR implies it was Lues fault - MarcusQuinn on 6/1/18 at 8:50 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Is this fulfilling for KD? - MarcusQuinn on 5/29/18 at 7:51 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: On which airline does the OT prefer to travel for domestic routes? - MarcusQuinn on 5/28/18 at 10:19 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: 30 years ago today, a Boeing 737 made an emergency landing on a levee in NO East.. - MarcusQuinn on 5/25/18 at 11:28 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: NBA Playoffs Thread 5/14: WCF | Boomshockalocka's Rockets vs WarSlamEagle's Warriors - MarcusQuinn on 5/14/18 at 9:57 pm
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
