re: Philadelphia Implemented A Soda Tax. It Didn't Go Like They Thought It Would - rebelrouser on 5/21/19 at 4:49 pm
[quote]CNN did not discuss the revenue hit Philadelphia took, but Hotair did: “The tax on soda increased by 17%, but the sales fell by 51%. So, let’s look at this assuming one million ounces of soda was sold annually before the tax went into effect.

re: To Audible or Not to Audible - rebelrouser on 5/21/19 at 4:26 pm
I've found some books/writers are better read vs. audio than others. I read on a Kindle though so i think that is a step toward audio books. Join your local library and then download to your phone for free and play through blue-tooth. Book i loved on audio is American Gods N. Gaiman. I also like Do...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: 2019 Preseason Consensus Rankings- UPDATED - rebelrouser on 5/21/19 at 4:07 pm
I used to laugh at these, buy you might as well pencil the same 5 teams into the playoff every year. Sooner or later the Pac12 will decide to start playing football again and move this up to same six teams year after year. NCAA will ensure this w/ their selective enforcement. Surprised A&M so high ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

You had an NFL dline. Mullen would have had that team at 10-2. At least you aren't the biggest idiots in the state. OM and the Luke buyout is laughable. I predict State will drop down to OM's level. That is kind of how the state works. Neither team will really look to win unless the other is winni...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Dan Carlin's podcast about Rome is exceptional (as is his podcast on Ghengis Khan) and very long and detailed. It used to be free but worth the modest fee if they charge. I also have Scipio Africanus: Greater Than Napoleon on my list about one of the most important men in human history. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
