Thank you all for the warm welcome! I noticed that a large percentage of the members are from England. I am correct?

Awesome, although I wasn't aware that Lebanon was particularly misty :icon_razz:

It is :icon_razz: especially in the western mountain range, you cant tell how many of your own fingers your holding up :icon_razz:

Would you settle for
American of Scottish
descent?
but yes, there are an
inordinate number
of Englishmen
they can't cook,
but do make great
booze

Rainbow

is kinda retarded

Yeah its so freaking beautiful, opinion taken from the pictures i had seen. I would really like to someday be able to visit the pristine mountain ranges of Scotland.

HAhaha i had always heard that English food is uneatable, that most of the recipes were make shift recipes, prepared during the second world war.

What kind of airplanes did you fly?

tagnostic
January 30th, 2009, 12:43 PM
i didn't fly them,
i guarded nukes
and the people
with the keys
sometimes it
got ugly, but
better than the
alternative

we were, are,
the only security force
in the world, trained to
kill their commanding officers
(if you do not have proper authorization, deadly force is required)
kinda makes it hard to retrain you

Rainbow

Wow must have been intense, especially that you were guarding those nukes during cold war events.

tagnostic
January 30th, 2009, 12:54 PM
the guarding was easy
the wierd bad head case stuff
was if someone with keys/codes
had a hostage taken (family friend)
and we couldn't get them back
we had to take out the threat,
never occured on any of my missions
but we were trained for it.
we had a success rate we're
not allowed to discuss

Welcome! Hopefully you start out as fiendish as I did lol. Finally slowed down here. We have a fair amount of good ol' ignorant americans (though we are not all ignorant... at least not on these forums).

I switched to MIS because I did not like the tediousness of programing.

programming is the art
of teaching computers
to avoid human error

Somehow the post above made things fall into perspective.

Programming is the art of learning to become very frustrated at something you have created without the burdens of child bearing.
