Recruit - 2nd Class (3/13)



  1. My thoughts & prayers are with all those down there, their family & friends. God's peace... I sure can't think of any reason behind it. Cobaka, it was good to hear that you are okay! Hope those you know faired as well.
  2. Snipers on roofs, helicopter & dogs sweeping the area... typical day @ tech, eh Cobaka? Thought about you when I heard the news- glad you were smart enough to not be out carousing with the students per usual. At least they caught the guy!
  3. Rocky, hope this has been a great year for you.. and that they only get better. bless you, my friend... and thanks
  4. k.. well- I was one of those mousepad skeptics- till I started playing AA... then.. in the midst of a firefight my avatar would start spinning in circles like a daggone ballerina. I'm sure it amused my opponents- but more often than not, I'd end up dead. After enough whining on my part, someone suggested that perhaps my mousepad was the problem. I bought the FunCpad... mostly b/c I'd heard of people using polishes, etc on their Ratpadz & I didn't want the bother. Well- it arrived about 3 weeks ago. I must say, I was giggling like a little kid seeing my mousepad encased in a shiny aluminum tin... with packaging that said "ultimate gaming pad". How silly! But- I'm sold on it. It has: two different "gaming" surfaces; a clip to hold the cord so it no longer gets strangled by my keyboard; it doesn't migrate; I now have to purposely pirouette; ... and i can't forget that nifty aluminum tin (that i've yet to find a use for... but it sure is cute). In a word... It's my only complaint was that I had to go get one of those wrist "pillows" to be a bit more comfortable... after having one built in for the last couple of years, I missed it.
  5. i've no help for you as i'm having a similiar issue ever since installing the updates to ms office2000. but i'll be interested to see if there are any suggestions... have you taken the updates recently, if not- maybe that would help? was it working and then stopped, or never worked? which ver. of Word? legal copy? such that you could call ms? mine was working fine until i took the update... i also had just installed America's Army... note: Word and AA are not compatible at all on my p4 1.8, 512mb machine which leads me to believe it might be a memory problem. What are your system specs? good luck!
  6. ok- Aqualung was one of the first VINYLs i purchased... does that help Jes? in the cd tray now is: lmao

    Blonde joke

    read this on the 7S Forum: posted by John_Pain: ----- Original KILLER BISCUITS WANTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER (the actual AP headline) Linda Burnett, 23, a resident of San Diego, was visiting her in-laws, and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries. Several people noticed her sitting in her car with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head. One customer who had been at the store for a while became concerned and walked over to the car. He noticed that Linda's eyes were now open, and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Linda replied that she'd been shot in the back of the head, and had been holding her brains in for over an hour. The man called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from her head. When they finally got in, they found that Linda had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head. A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She had initially passed out, but quickly recovered and tried to hold her brains in for over an hour until someone noticed and came to her aid. And, yes, Linda is a blonde.
  9. Thanks y'all. It was a good one.

    Mom's coffee

    A sweet little boy surprised his mother one morning and brought her a cup of coffee in bed. He had made it all by himself and was so proud. He waited eagerly to hear her verdict on the quality of the coffee. The mother had truly never in her life had such a bad cup of coffee. The first few sips just about did her in, but she praised her son, told him it was wonderful, and drank it all anyway. As she forced down the last sip, she noticed three little green army guys in the bottom of the cup. She asked, "Honey, why would three of your little army guys be in the bottom of my cup?" Her son replied, "You know, mom, it’s like on TV: 'The best part of waking up... is soldiers in your cup.'" remember this sunday is Mother's Day in the US, Canada and many other parts of the world

    Can't win...

    wow! this thread's been derailed! so... one of those "Scottish things" --- The old Beadle had held office for the best part of a lifetime. As he lay on his deathbed he summoned his son to leave him some words of advice. "Listen ti yir auld faither, John" he said "A hae been beadle here fir fowertie yeir an mair an A hae been thinkin that thai micht mak ye ma successor. Weill, ma son, A hae juist ane bittie o advice fir ti gie ye." After a long pause he finished with impassioned gravity " John, nevvir forget this - Resist aw impruivements."
  13. Finally a Barbie I can relate to. At long last, here are some NEW Barbie dolls to coincide with her and "my" aging gracefully. I think these are a bit more realistic... [1.]Bifocals Barbie- Comes with her own set of blended-lens fashion frames in six wild colors (half-frames too!), neck chain, and large-print editions of Vogue and Martha Stewart Living. [2.]Hot Flass Barbie- Press Barbie's bellybutton and watch her face turn beet red while tiny drops of perspiration appear on her forehead. Comes with handheld fan and tiny tissues. [3.]Facial Hair Barbie- As Barbie's hormone levels shift, see her whiskers grow. Available with teensy tweezers and magnifying mirror. [4.]Flabby Arms Barbie- Hide Barbie's droopy triceps with these new, roomier-sleeved gowns. Good news on the tummy front, two-MuuMuus with tummy-support panels are included. [5.]Bunion Barbie- Years of disco dancing in stiletto heels have definitely taken their toll on Barbie's dainty arched feet. Soothe her sores with the pumice stone and plasters, then slip on soft terry mules. [6.]No-More-Wrinkles Barbie- Erase those pesky crow's-feet and lip lines with a tube of Skin Sparkle-Spackle, from Barbie's own line of exclusive age-blasting cosmetics. [7.]Soccer Mom Barbie- All that experience as a cheerleader is really paying off as Barbie dusts off her old high school megaphone to root for Babs and Ken, Jr. Comes with minivan in robin-egg blue or white and cooler filled with doughnut holes and fruit punch. [8.]Mid-life Crisis Barbie- It's time to ditch Ken. Barbie needs a change, and Alonzo (her personal trainer) is just what the doctor ordered, along with Prozac. They're hopping in her new red Miata and heading for the Napa Valley to open a B&B. Includes a real tape of "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do." [9.]Divorced Barbie- Sells for $199.99. Comes with Ken's house, Ken's car, and Ken's boat. [10.]Recovery Barbie- Too many parties have finally caught up with the ultimate party girl. Now she does Twelve Steps instead of dance steps. Clean and sober, she's going to meetings religiously. Comes with a little copy of The Big Book and a six-pack of Diet Coke. [11.]Post-Menopausal Barbie- This Barbie wets her pants when she sneezes, forgets where she puts things, and cries a lot. She is sick and tired of Ken sitting on the couch watching the tube, clicking through the channels. Comes with Depends and Kleenex. As a bonus this year, the book "Getting In Touch with Your Inner Self" is included.
  14. And hope things are going well for you! drop us a line when you get the time. in the mean time, take care & hurry home

    Can't win...

    heard from the pulpit last Sunday: An 85-year-old couple, having been married almost 60 years, died in a car crash. They had been in good health the last ten years mainly due to the wife's interest in health food and exercise. When they reached the pearly gates, St. Peter took them to their mansion, which was decked out with a beautiful kitchen and bathroom suite, with a Jacuzzi. As they "oohed and aahed," the old man asked Peter how much all this was going to cost. "It's free," Peter replied, "this is Heaven." Next they went out back to survey the championship golf course that the home backed up to. They would have golfing privileges every day, and each week the course tranformed to a new one, representing the great golf courses on Earth. The old man asked, "What are the green fees?" Peter's reply, "This is Heaven, you play for free." Next they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch, with the cuisines of the world laid out. "How much to eat?" asked the old man. "Don't you understand yet? This is Heaven, it is free!" Peter replied with some exasperation. "Well, where are the low fat and low cholesterol tables?" the old man asked timidly. Peter lectured, "That's the best part; you can eat as much as you like of whatever you like, and you never get fat or sick. This is Heaven." With that, the old man went into a fit of anger, throwing down his hat and stomping on it, and shrieking wildly. Peter and his wife both tried to calm him down, asking him what was wrong. The old man looked at his wife and said, "This is all your fault. If it weren't for your bran muffins, I could have been here ten years ago!" note: if this has been posted before, I apologize - my search didn't show it.
