81  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Send Service Vets over 60! on: January 27, 2010, 03:33:43 AM
> New Direction for any war: 
>
> I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ass-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn't be able to join a military unit until you're at least 35.
>
> For starters, researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds. Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.
>
> Young guys haven't lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. 'My back hurts! I can't sleep, I'm tired and hungry.' We are impatient and maybe letting us kill some asshole that desperately deserves it will make us feel better and shut us up for awhile.
>
> An 18-year-old doesn't even like to get up before 10am. Old guys always get up early to pee, so what the hell.. Besides, like I said, I'm tired and can't sleep and since I'm already up, I may as well be up killing some fanatical son-of-a-bitch.


> If captured we couldn't spill the beans because we'd forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial number would be a real brainteaser.
>
> Boot camp would be easier for old guys.. We're used to getting screamed and yelled at and we're used to soft food. We've also developed an appreciation for guns. We've been using them for years as an excuse to get out of the house, away from the screaming and yelling.


> They could lighten up on the obstacle course however. I've been in combat and never saw a single 20-foot wall with rope hanging over the side, nor did I ever do any pushups after completing basic training.
>
> Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too. I've never seen anyone outrun a bullet.
>
> An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He's still learning to shave, to start a conversation with a pretty girl. He still hasn't figured out that a baseball cap has a brim to shade his eyes, not the back of his head.
>
> These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to learn a little more about life before sending them off into harm's way.
>
> Let us old guys track down those dirty rotten coward terrorists. The last thing an enemy would want to see is a couple million pissed off old farts with attitudes and automatic weapons, who know that their best years are already behind them.
>
> HEY!!  How about recruiting Women over 50...in menopause!!! You think MEN have attitudes??

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh my God!!!  If nothing else, put them on border patrol. They'll have it secured the first night!

I've got the European one from long ago. It's a descent game. It has however, as does all Battlefront games. a VERY bad drm. I would buy this one in a second if it wasn't for that. As it is tho, I've made a promise to myself never to buy another Battlefront game until they change it to something more manageable like Matrix has.

86  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Miniatur Wunderland - Large Scale Train World on: January 23, 2010, 12:18:24 AM
When I was in Germany some friends and I visited a similar type place in southern Germany. It was a train museum however and had lots of real trains and one of the largest train layouts I've ever seen.
Oddly, the largest train layout I've ever seen (H0)was underneath the bleachers at the horse racing part of the Los Angeles County fair in Pomona California. They had some block long outdoor train layouts in G gauge or something too.

The VA gives me Perocet but can only give it for one prescription at a time and no refills. I have to call the doctor back and get a new prescription when I want it. I took the hydrocdone and thought it was a joke.
My wife who has MS (a nerve degeneration disease) can't even get any pain meds from her doctor.

I just waste my time playing Xcom UFO Defense instead of going to OO.

For 300 lbs of peanut butter cups I can let you all have it back at any time.

I suspect peanut butter cups were involved, but no ones talking about that.

Somewhere in outer space there's this little alien baby with a remote control switch just having a grand old time.

107  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What movies *do* you like? on: January 14, 2010, 06:03:47 PM
I like to read reviews just to find out a little more about the movie. Whether the author likes the movie or not doesn't really matter too much.
108  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: AI War: Fleet Command on: January 14, 2010, 05:58:25 PM
It is one massive patch, over 100 megs. Haven't tired it out with the new patch tho.

111  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What movies *do* you like? on: January 13, 2010, 02:06:05 AM
I like action movies and special effects. I also like color movies and not these washed out ones that are so in vogue right now. Shakey cams can stick it up it shakey butts too.
I also like some of the olde movies in B&W like The Philadelphia Story or Arsenic and Old Lace.
MY guilty pleasure is Godzilla movies.

Once it reaches a certain temperature it gets cold enough you can't tell if it gets colder anymore except by thermometer. I learned that in northern Maine.
Every year just about it'll get in the single digits and occasionally to the minus regions.
I was so sad about the goat. I had to do a C section on her after she died as I thought there might be a second kid in there. There wasn't. That's a procedure I never want to do again. Used an Xacto knife. Yuch!
115  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: It's cold! on: January 08, 2010, 04:07:33 PM
Woke up to around zero F and a wind chill of about -600 t0 -700. When I was out back I yelled to my wife to bring me some warm water but the words froze and I had to bring them into the house so they could thaw out so she could she could hear what I said.

I watched this old humorous horror flick type thing called Dogma with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck as fallen angels trying to get back to heaven. Had cameos by a dozen other celebrities.
119  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: It's cold! on: January 07, 2010, 08:30:10 PM
Nothing like laying down on the snow and ice at 6F and a windchill of -4F trying to deliver a baby goat.
Lost both the baby and the mother. icon_cry
