  1. I was feeling nostalgic so I decided to see if ghostrecon.net still existed. Of course I had to check in here. I miss this thread.
  2. I don't think it has to do with being left- or right-handed. I'm right handed and, like you, no matter what I do I just get clockwise. Even though I'm right handed, I'm left eye dominant (which, by the way, is a pain in the ass when I'm shooting), so I also tried closing my left eye and then doing all that stuff again. And still all I got was clockwise.
  3. Kraft Mesquite Smoke Barbecue Sauce on ribs or brisket. That's all I eat barbecued.
  4. Oh, the microscope crap. Yeah, it sucks. The worst grade I ever made on anything in geology had to do with that.
  5. Thanks! I haven't yet, but I can tell you already that I will be applying to at least the "Denver Corporate Office - General Expression of Interest" link. I don't have much time left on my home internet this month. (I have a free Juno account limited to 10 hours. This wasn't a problem when I was a student. I just used the schools. Now. . . ) So anyway, next time I go to the library I'll apply for whatever interests me and I'll PM you and say what I've applied for. Sounds like my kind of place.
  6. Thanks everyone. I have/will be sending resumes to anything that my education is even remotely related to. I minored in biology so I'm also applying for biology jobs. Mostly I've been going to websites, searching by state and applying to anything geology or biology related or anything that doesn't list an experience requirement. God yes. I have no intention of staying in Texas any longer than I have to. Colorado will work. I was hoping for Montana, Wyoming, one of the Dakotas or Vermont but Colorado will do. Anything really. I'm not picky, just greedy. Sedimentology is fairly easy. What I HATED was petrology. All those rock classification systems drive me nuts. I'm hoping. @ Stalker_Zero: Aren't you a ray of sunshine? But trust me, I know the feeling.
  7. Well, job hunting still sucks. I still am unemployed. But I took my last final exam ever yesterday! I'll officially be a college graduate whenever the hell they put my last class on my transcript.
  8. I majored in geology. Unfortunately every job I've found has wanted a master's degree AND experience. I have neither, and will never have a master's, since I'm done with school. I switched from business to geology because of the accounting classes required for any business degree. God, I hated accounting. Double entry bookkeeping is evil. Thanks.
  9. Sounds about right. @ calius: If I thought I had a chance in hell of getting away with it. . . But not with my luck.
  10. I hate looking for a job! I can't find anything that I couldn't have gotten just as easily without a degree (like waiter). I'm so sick of this. Everybody wants someone with experience. HOW THE ###### AM I SUPPOSED TO GET EXPERIENCE IF I CAN'T GET A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!! I really want to retire already. Unfortunately I'm not a multimillionaire.
  11. Math. The lowest grades I've ever gotten in my life were trigonometry and in chemistry (and it was the math involved in the chemistry that killed me). I passed both on the first try, but they sure as hell didn't help my grade point average.
  12. I knew you were at university. It's still a school. Still studying astronomy? It's been a long time since I've played any computer game. And I really ought to be looking for a job right now, not talking to you. But job hunting sucks.
  13. So post in it you ######ing idiot!!!!!! You haven't posted here in 13 months! Ah, I do miss giving you crap for no real reason. Seriously though, I miss this thread too. How's school been, Slink? I'll be graduating in a month and a half.
  14. Somehow I always figured that was how Dan felt.
  15. I missed it. I have no idea what Dan said about me. And Dan, I never knew you cared.
  16. I'm with you 100% percent on every bit of this. Legally, what they've done is no different than when a movie is edited for content so that it can be shown on TV. So, no, it's not copyright infringement.
  17. Real? Yes. Really useful? That would depend on how useful you think a .22 caliber Derringer is. Personally, I'd say not very. Still, interesting conversation piece.
  18. Jeez, you guy's are throwing the best bits away, bacon rind is one of the great pleasures in life. I bet you trim the fat off steaks and don't eat the crackling on a roast either And don't even get me started on roast chicken or turkey skin I still think that stuff you Limey's call bacon looks horrible. But bacon should not be lean. However, American style bacon is the only way that I'll eat fat. But I don't cut the fat off of meat or pull the skin off of chicken until after it's cooked, because lean meat sucks.

    I really don't know why anyone would want to see this movie. From the commercials and the clips I've seen when the guy who plays the Spartan commander has been on talk shows, the acting is really, REALLY hammy. I also really don't see why you'd want to watch a movie that looks like a comic book (excuse me "graphic novel" ). But then, I'm not a fan of comic books.
  20. hahahaha back when [GR] was the only GR, people were always complaining about it and trying to find ways around it. You mean like this? I think it's obvious which side I'm on in this debate. I like to be able to see far away.
  21. I suppose so. :'( Of the 7 people with over 100 posts in this thread, you, me and Gordo are the only ones still on GR.net at all. Slink, Jeff and Mike are MIA. I haven't seen Dan on GR.net in a month. You've never posted in this thread as much as some of those spammers. And I'm not yet crazy enough to talk to myself. So,
  22. ^doesn't realize I know that, but was messing with WytchDokta (as I often do)^
  23. ^is too lazy to translate propaganda campaign into German^
  24. A loonie is Canadian one dollar coin (it has a loon on it). A toonie is a two dollar coin. I have no idea where I learned that, since I'm an American, I've never been to Canada and I don't know any Canadians. The pointless crap that I pick up.
  25. I can't see how any shade of purple would be a good color for a desert pattern. The only colors I can think of that would be worse are either fluorescent or (in nature) are only seen on a few flowers. Based on nearly every picture or movie I've ever seen of Africa, most of Africa doesn't look much different than most of Texas and large parts of Australia (both of which I'm very familiar with). And any shade of purple wouldn't work in Texas or Australia, so I can't imagine what the hell the people in South Africa were thinking. The only reference I see to a Kwazulu camo is in a court transcript (just search for the word camo) which does nothing but mention it, and based on context it it appears to be a police pattern. No idea what color it is. But I now at least know there is a pattern called Kwazulu. Where did you find this pattern anyway?
