  1. On the bars thing, they must get 51% of their revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages for onsite consumption to be classified as a bar. If they sell food, they are classified as a restaurant. Many bars are technically restaurants, and many proper bars started selling food during the pandemic to get reclassified as restaurants so they could reopen. In Texas at least.
  2. I was curious about Juneteenth outside of Texas and was reading the wikipedia article and saw that. It looks like the Choctaw were formally practicing African Slavery until the reconstruction treaty with them was ratified on June 28, 1866 and proclaimed July 10, 1866. I'm not sure which would have been the proper date for it to be in effect, but that is a solid year after Juneteenth.

  7. Working cowboys have worn loud colors and stuff going all the way back to the days of the trail drives. Maybe brighter colors stood out better in the dust?
  8. The very idea that this thread has existed for so long should give any rational thinker pause at the idea that the Univeristy of Texas is a premier source of education for anyone in America. There is a hugely disturbing lack of understanding of history, religion, and basic logic being pushed here by folks who style themselves as liberal.
  9. If we made all non profits pay property taxes we would basically have to eliminate property taxes for them to even exist in most large metro areas.
  10. Not really. Spend enough time standing around holding each other's dicks and you eventually get a sort of telepathic connection. Allegedly.
  11. "I'm thinking of taking the kids to the science discovery center tomorrow. On Thursdays they have three dollar Tuesdays."
  12. Yeah, it's the water condensing on the coils and dripping down the drain that makes the difference.
