re: If F King leaves w/ the perception Wade "did it", it will be bad for LSU - EA6B
[quote I don't want LSU to end up with the reputation that it is all about sports only at LSU.[/quote] Way to late to be concerned with that, a quick look at alumni donations makes it pretty clear that most would have no problem bulldozing the campus if that would win more games, or even just i...

re: Alex Lifeson - EA6B
Alex Lifeson is a good guitarist that created some outstanding riffs within the Rush song catalog, but he is not among the guitar greats. He can do his own music, but from videos of him solo with his guitar it seems like he would be almost lost if put outside his comfort zone. For example someone li...

re: Whats the point of buying a Rolex? - EA6B
I would buy one of the high end knockoffs that go for 500-600 bucks. They are so accurate in reproduction that it requires a jeweler that knows the difference to remove the back and examine the movement to determine if its fake. More than a few people have paid $1500.00-$2000.00 for one under the i...

[quote]Only 3% of term policies payout. A permanent policy is 100% guaranteed to payout. You can claim the term is a better deal. But there is a 97% probability that you are pissing 100% of that money away. Anyone with facts can make the statistics sing whatever they want them to sing. But your a...
