  5. See, I still had to start it myself! But yeah,I haven't been around much, I know.
  6. Banned for using the word hipster in the same sentence as cool
  7. I haven't watched since the season premier. I'm done. That brain bashing was ridiculous. But, besides that, I've been losing interest in the show for quite some time. It's just not what it started out being. I actually like the zombies to be scary and the real monster. If I wanted to watch people versus people, I'd watch any of the other shows out there. I want to see people versus zombies. But whatever, I know that I'm the only one who matters for ratings.
  8. Is today the day? Shit! Did I miss it!

      No, I'm back home.  I don't know what's going on downrange right now.

      Some of our Executive team disappeared for a couple days last week and there has been more closed-door meetings than usual.  The rumor mill is running wild at the office.

  10. Hell we may elect President Camacho this year.
  11. When they shot War of the Worlds with Tom Cruise, they used a bunch of humvees and stuff from the Virginia Army National Guard. They also wanted soldiers to drive them, so that scene where all of the military equipment is rolling out to go fight the aliens, that's all Virginia Guard soldiers and equipment. There were about ten of them from my unit in there, ten trucks, and a handful of drivers from my unit (can't remember how many). I was not in it, but I did authorize the use of the equipment as the commander that those humvees came from. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0407304/trivia?item=tr0775253
  12. Yes, it does. It was sad because for the past four years, we've had to make an annual summertime trip down to Virginia, bring all our rakes, and tools, and vacuums, and whatever else, go down, not stay in our own home because either A) there was somebody still living there, or B) there were no beds or other furnishings there so we'd have had to sleep on the floor, and clean, fix, run to home depot and buy a bunch of stuff to make the house ready to put back on the market to hopefully get a good tenant. This last time around, we didn't get a tenant at all. Ugh. What a fucking headache. Anyway, all that I won't miss. But I do have many fond memories of that house.
  13. Unfortunately, I took a loss, but whatevs. It's not my fault the housing market collapsed and the economy never fully recovered.
  14. BB Guns are allowed in cub scouts, but I thought it was only for Webelos. Archery isn't something my cubs ever did. I was a Cubmaster for 2 years. Tomahawk throwing sounds a bit scary. Yeah, the biggest concern usually with cub scouts is the fire. They are attracted to it like flies to a picnic and I swear they'd jump in it if they were allowed to.
  15. So, as of this past Friday at approximately 2:30 PM, I sold my house in Virginia!!! I can not begin to express how relieved I am... but also how sad I am that it is now not part of my life. My wife and I bought it in 2004 when she was pregnant with our oldest. We poured our souls into that house. It was a great home. But then it was time to move on and it became a rental property. We rented it for 3 out of 4 years that we didn't live there, and repaired a bunch of damage in the process, dealt with a flea infestation. Bottom line, it sucked being landlords, and it was even worse being out of state landlords. At the end of the day, I lost a shit ton of money over the life of that home, but it was a good home and it served it's purpose. As my wife said last night, we'll keep the photos and memories and lose the mortgage and maintenance, so in the end we win.
