Chittown2 or some other banned member?
Whoever you are there is probably a wife, maybe kids at home who matter more than posting on this website. Maybe you should spend some time with them and spare us all your conetrarian posts. You seem like an intellgient person, so rationally you should:

Hearing Burl Ives makes me want to hit someone with a folding chair. My favorite month is an 11 way tie between the months of January through November.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||If you are in the 6th arrondissement||
(Which is just south of the Seine River from the Louvre & Notre Dame) Check out Le Comptoir, great food, though I still found it to be pricey for what we got (welcome to Paris in general). I'd avoid the more famous Cafe de Flore & Les Duex Magots unless you are down paying €15 for single glass of brandi.
The Latin Quarter is pretty cool and has cafes that are much friendlier on the wallet (numerous prefix menus for under €20).
We were generally happier when we stuck with the basics (croissants, baguettes, croque messiers, onion soup, crepes, steak frites). Kinda like getting a good slice in New York or a good taco in L.A.
If you are drinking, most cafes and brasseries have crap beer selection. Heineken, Leffe & 1664 are pretty much standard. Stick with the house wine, it's cheaper and better.
If you are into farmer's markets, check out the St Germain covered market. Awesome food to be had.

But the music school does have the Performing Arts & Tech Program
The music theory & piano performance requirements are pretty rough on a non-formally trained musician (reading music and all, if you can't do it you're behind the ball). But if he's a smart kid it's doable.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||.12 is a percentage...||
Hence why it is a relevant measurement for some whose 220 or 105 lbs. What you are really arguing then is that someone whose 220 has to drink more to reach .12. However, talking on a cellphone causes people to drive with the equivelant impaired skills of a .12 blood acohol level.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||It's all about the TV ratings||
How many other FBS vs. FCS matchups will get bumped up to network TV? There will be more pregame hype for that game than many FBS conference games, and instead certainly more than any other teams playing FCS oppenents whose games will be relegated to the Big Ten Network (or regional equivelant).
That being said, I'm not sure if ABC/CBS/NBC picks up the game how we financially benefit from it since we are already tied into our TV contract via the Big Ten Network. I suppose the BTN gets a nice pay out to broadcast the game on the network and we might potentially get a bump along with the rest of the Big Ten schools.
If nothing else, it certainly gets us more national exposure than any MAC school, and probably as much exposure as playing a middling BCS team without as much risk of loss.

|1 year 25 weeks ago||Hmm.||
Probably because Kilgore Trout was Kurt Vonnegut's reoccuring protaganist. Now, if sparty signs Ford Prefect I will bust out a towel...
|1 year 27 weeks ago||An easy and appropriate response||
would be to get an hood of a car and have him slide across it from left to right 2100 hundred times. Would be the equivelant of 2100 box jumps. I imagine that would scour the desire to relive the dukes of hazard moment.

For helping us old farts understand the meaning of such archane leet speak such as Sam Adams and Scrotum.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||As a graduate of the PAT program||
(Performing Arts&Tech in the music school, where the audio engineering program resides) I can attest to the dopeness of the facilities, the main audio studio as well as the 2 electronic music studios. I hope he can read music because there is still a core music curriculum requirement of 4 semesters of music theory and 2 semesters of piano performance.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||While a liberal arts degree||
While a liberal arts degree and the associated major may not be directly relevant to your future profession, a degree says you have a great ability to learn and apply knowledge quickly. There are very few professions where that is not a valuable skill.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||That's a massive simplification||
There are plenty of career paths that would be incredibily difficult to follow without the right undergrad program. Not saying criminal justice is one (I frankly don't know enough about it) such path, but let's not over generalize.

You could run the table at 11-0 this year, but it seems rather unlikely you'll get that 12th victory.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||The Giants' regular season was mediocore||
but I doubt too many players classify winning a super bowl as "a team that isn't winning."
EDIT: Crap I just saw the other teams he was looking at (not the Giants). Ignore.

Unless I am missing a meme...
It seems everyone loves some Gruden. If he is such an amazing coach, why hasn't he been hired for a coaching position in 3 years?
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Cocaine ain't cheap||
I'm wondering where the lacross narcotics use would stack up against other 'upper class' sports, ala tennis, golf, crew, etc.

Pat White? Playing baseball these days.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||There's no way around politics on this one.||
It is a bill in congress, which is inherently political. However, from our perspective this is barely even off topic. Under SOPA, "Cue the Muppets" posts would be ground to shut down or block access to this site, since the muppets are the IP of Disney who will not likely be trigger shy when it comes to using the law .

You've framed your arguement with the "Douchetonio" line. Happy travels!

The Next OS he brought with him was a nice addition to the company, and became the basis for OS X, though the iPod likely did more to saving the company.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||No, it's not ironic||
–noun, plural -nies.
the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning: the irony of her reply, “How nice!” when I said I had to work all weekend.

had her alltime favorite newborn name with "Propeesha," great name for a little girl...poor choice and a phonetic spelling on top of it.

I loved me some UofM girls during my undergrad in Ann Arbor, but MSU girls were on average hotter than ours based purely on looks. And they were definitely sluttier. And not as smart. All of which are goods things when you are trying to take their virtue.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||ESPN claims||
he finished his undergrad in 3 years. Rather impressive to be able to graduate in three years while on an athletic scholarship given the time commitment football requires. Not that NC State is exactly an academic powerhouse, but it certainly bodes well for his aptitude to quickly learn a new playbook and system compared to someone like Newton.
