And as for the various US military branches being better, we both know that that's nothing more than a rivalry which
has no real answer. All branches are good at what they do but only together can we do everything!


Hope you didn't take it the wrong way ... I wasn't making commentary about the US forces ... just the competition and
camaradery of brothers in arms everywhere.

In my case my grandfather was Army, my father was Air Force, I was Air Force, my brother was Navy, a first cousin was Air
Force, both of my sons are Air Force ... Canadian Armed Forces, that is.  Makes for a lot of fun and sniping at family
gatherings.

And, of course, in parting, in the words of Winston Churchill: "The men of the Army and the Navy ... and the Gentlemen of the
Air Force."

May God keep all in uniform in the palm of his hand.

Very interesting pictures, maybe you did had bad days but I'm sure you'll remember this period with emotion
when you'll be older :)

Yes, and that emotion will be elation at not having to do it anymore. ;)

Perhaps the epitome of good old useless postings ...  international sports discussions.

Today, my quandary:  Who do I cheer for in an upcoming FIFA 2010 matchup?  Traditionally, I usually cheer for one of three
countrie's teams, Canada (where I live), France (where I was born) and Eire (my ancestral home).  Now Eire and France have a
playoff matchup.  Who to choose?

Any comments on FIFA's decision to seed the playoff draw?

I'd say Canada, just because even though they aren't playing, I'd wager doen't make it *impossible* to
win :badsmile:

Thanks Free, you were a real help.  France pulled it off ... except ...

I guess that Henri Thierry has now joined that exclusive club ... along with Maradona ... the "Hand of God" be damned!!!

topic bump! :badsmile:

I had my family buy a car for my (eventual) discharge from the navy! (as in i saw it on craigslist and gave my family the money for it..) This was a few months ago, but they finally got around to sending me some high quality pics!

Ignore the date, the camera used to take the pics was not set.



A '68 Ford Mustang in not-so-mint condition! :gift:
Old classic muscle? Well, two of those apply.. It's got an old 6 cylinder engine. :badsmile:

I gotta say, those old cars look 100x better than most new cars today! It needs a lot of work, but considering that it's 42 years old and still turning heads, you almost can't beat that! of course it looks better in that photo than it does on closer inspection. I'm gradually buying parts for it and I'll start working on it when I have the parts when I get out. ( just over a year now! :ptdr: )

I think, the thing I like best about it, is that it was made before the govt. made it mandatory to put those pesky metric units in the speedometer!

Now I've got nothing against the metric system, but everyone who knows me knows my preferences in this matter. I don't care whether you use it but when I see a dual standard/metric speedo in a car it's like an itch on your back you can't reach it drives me nuts! One or the other, dammit! and I'll use my miles thank-you-very-much!

And that's that. maybe I'll show off the dirty carpet in future posts! :badsmile:

lol. I don't follow the soccer/football scene, but I could not help noticing a blurb on yahoo about the world cup.

http://g.sports.yahoo.com/soccer/world-cup/news/slovenia-usa-five-things-to-watch--fbintl_ro-fivethingstowatch061710.html


Basically, I would like to say that if Slovenia wins, DocHoliday is more awesome than me.

Likewise, if the US wins, I am more awesome than DocHoliday.


PS: Don't look for any logic behind this. It just is! :damn:

PPS: I can't be the only one still posting here!?!

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

to answer that question.... FINALLY!!  


Spoiler  :
According to a Wall Street Journal article, New York State wildlife expert Richard Thomas found that a woodchuck could chuck around 35 cubic feet of dirt in the course of digging a burrow. Thomas reasoned that if a woodchuck could chuck wood, he would chuck an amount equal to 700 pounds.
Some say it depends on three factors:

    * The woodchuck's desire to chuck said wood.

    * The woodchuck's need to chuck the aforementioned wood.

    * The woodchuck's ability to chuck the wood when it is a woodchuck

WRONG!


A woodchuck would chuck as much wood as a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood!
