The Photography/Photographer/Photo thread
Nov 17, 2011 - 1:00 PM - by t3ch
Photography threads seem to pop up often enough and posts get lost/unnoticed in the random thoughts thread. Maybe a more directed thread would be useful?
Anyways, I've got some questions for you guys, even though most of you seem to shoot Nikon. I've got the Canon T3i and want Santa to bring me some new toys to play with. I'm thinking higher quality wide lense to replace the kit 18-55 and a macro? I really like macro photography.
Secondly, I need to replace some basic equipment. I tried to take pictures of the moon with my telephoto and realized my tripod is horrible. Any tripods you guys like? Anything else I should look to add to improve the photographic arsenal? Weird lenses, filters, etc?
Lastly, anyone a member on a photo-forum? Mind telling me where so I can read through and learn some stuff?
Several of the photo guys are MIA right now but hopefully this thread develops into a good resource.
Alcoholic Beverages: Liquor Edition
Jun 08, 2014 - 9:01 PM - by Thunderbroom
When it comes to adult beverages, I tend to prefer beer and wine. Earlier this week I spent 3 days in Atlanta with my best friend from high school. We did a lot of fun stuff including visiting the University of Georgia, the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and a Braves game. We also drank a fair amount.
My friend Chris made me a margarita like one I've never tasted before. Instead of the sweet taste that I normally associate with them, the ones he made were tart. I forgot where he told me he heard this, but he said that he was told that a margarita was supposed to be a refreshing drink and that the tartness is what is supposed to be emphasized. I actually liked it.
We went out to a somewhat fancy restaurant on Tuesday night. I got a beer, his wife got wine, and he ordered a mint julep. I tried his and was hooked. I had a handful after that. I didn't think I liked bourbon, but in this form I did. They used Four Roses bourbon. I think I may get a bottle and make my own.
So...what else am I missing on the mixed drinks/hard liquor front? I've read the threads on here where some of you drink some of this stuff straight. I don't think that would be something I'd like, but you never know.
Ebassist NFL/American Football Thread

Let's get this started on a 'realistic appraisal of where the NFL's priorities are' note:
The National Football League has decided that smoking pot is 8 times worse than [url=http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/nfl-suspends-ray-rice-for-two-games--report-145355380.html]beating a woman unconscious and dragging her through a public place (on video)[/url].
The NFL - "We could give a shit about 45% of our fanbase, I mean, they probably deserved it, mirite?"
