  1. Funny, someone here already suggested that. Unfortunately it's the kinder gentler Navy. We can't settle issues like this with any kind of hazing because it gets spread all over the news, blown way out of proportion, and I lose my wings and my job.
  2. So as I've mentioned before I'm stuck in Bahrain for a couple more months. The building we live in has some screwed up internet connection that is shared by everyone on each floor and it's real slow, something like 2mb per second, on a good day. So anyway, this fat bastard checks into the det, and he has problems with his router. I know enough to set them up, so I fix his and guess what. Now his fat ass is constantly downloading movies, so the internet connection for me, my roommates, and everyone else on the floor has gone to shit. He's already said that he doesn't care. So anyway, if anyone can supply me with the how to, I'd like to hop on his network and limit how much he can download. He has a Linksys WRT54G. If anyone can direct me to what setting to change, I would appreciate it.
  3. I've lost 15 lbs since coming to Bahrain. I've been doing the P90x which is great. Diet is a huge part of it. I'm not too creative with my diet, so I pretty much eat the exact thing every day so that I get the right proportion of carbs, fats, and protein and I always know how many calories I'm taking in. A few things I do to keep myself motivated and in check, is to write down what I eat. If you don't do that, you never truly realize how much you're over or under eating. I also take pictures, normally on a weekly basis just so I can actually see the change. I got that from http://www.johnstonefitness.com . I also visualize how I want to look. I do some extra cardio on top of the P90x and when I get on the treadmill I can mentally see how I'm going to look in another 15 lbs and it's extremely motivating and it keeps me running and working out everyday. I got to Bahrain at 200 lbs, carrying an extra 15 that I put on after shoulder surgery. I'm at 185 now and I'm going home to my wife with some custom made suits that I'm getting made here in Bahrain at 170 lbs and a nice 6 pack. Set goals, prioritize, and have the willpower to stick with it.

    Det is detachment. My squadron is permanently based out of Norfolk, but we have a detachment in Bahrain to fly people, mail, and supplies to the ships in the Arabian gulf. Yeah, that's where I live. The apartment we have really isn't too bad, but that is the view from the balcony.

    Just thought I'd drop a line and say hi from the land of "fuck it's hot and humid". I'm halfway through the det, getting some good flying in, and sweating my balls off. Not much time to play games unfortunately, and when I do have time either I'm online by myself or the internet is too shitty to get online. Can't say that I've taken a whole lot of cool pics. We mostly fly passengers, mail, and cargo to ships that are guarding oil platforms off the coast of Iraq. I know it doesn't sound too exciting, but it is a good time and we enjoy it. Anyway, here are a couple of pics I have taken since being out here. This first one is just a det photo of the pilots and aircrew in front of one of our birds. I'm the one stroking my cheesy det stache. http://trvsmrtn.smugmug.com/photos/509425074_Y5vHu-L.jpg These next two are a couple I took through my NVGs on the flight deck while our bird was doing deck landing qualifications. http://trvsmrtn.smugmug.com/photos/512443241_spTSH-L.jpg http://trvsmrtn.smugmug.com/photos/511935265_vfErP-L.jpg This next one is a view of the lovely city of Juffair from my flat on a normal day. The one that follows is that same view during a sandstorm. http://trvsmrtn.smugmug.com/photos/498600088_RkmpX-O.jpg http://trvsmrtn.smugmug.com/photos/561056083_9EFJz-L.jpg Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting back in time for football season, and hopefully in time to whoop some ass on MW2. I'll drop by again at some point. Later.

    Damn, I must be slipping. My goodbye post would've been a great place to put one.

    It's time...

    I know I haven't been around much lately, but now I'll be around even less. I leave Monday for Bahrain. I get to spend the next 6 months flying to the North Arabian Gulf and Iraq. I'll stop by on occasion, and if I have a decent internet connection, I'll be on Killzone from time to time. If not, I'll see you in September.

    Sigh!!! I wasn't gonna say anything else but bro, you just are an instigater. I hope my "intellegence" is up to yours in this post. Let me go back to the beginning kid. You started this bro! You can post a story from a site and want opinions thats all and good. If it were a site on a new game or something about a new patch of socom or whatever thats one thing. You, and only you decided to make a political statement that you didn't even make on your own. Yet, you can't take it when others bang on you for it. GET OVER YOURSELF!! Now go tell wiz I said this! That will be your next step There you go again. What's the point in "banging on me for it"? Use your "intellegence" as you call it, and make a logical, thought out response to the thread instead of trying to attack me. It's called a conversation.

    So why did you say that?? Drama Queen? Those two posts by you were attacks, not dissenting opinions. If you want to post an opposing viewpoint, then do so. If you want to make a personal attack, then we can arrange that too. Oh can we? Can we please? Don't rick roll me. That's pretty mature. Charlottesville, WV is about halfway between us. You pick the spot and I'll meet you there Saturday afternoon. We can have a cup of coffee and discuss our differences.

    So defensive. Go back to all of the threads and posts I've replied to or made about Obama, and you'll see that I've never said a cross word about him. In this instance, like I said before, I posted an article about what I consider to be a bad judgement call and I wanted to see the responses that I would get from a more liberal group of people than those I hang out with. I have had one person reply intelligently, several people make smart ass comments, and one person come out with personal attacks. I wasn't looking for political opinions or discussions, I was just looking for either "yeah, it was a bad call", or "it wasn't that big of a deal" type responses. I find it rather sad that these are the types of responses I get from this group. The more conservative website that I originally got the link from just said things like "yeah, bad call on his part" and "minus 1 for headwork" but nothing really negative. I look at some of your ages and you claim to be in the 30's but, I really hope you're lying. Grow the fuck up.

    Don't come attacking me. I'm not attacking anyone. I posted a link to a story and I posted a few observations. I didn't say one negative thing about Obama. UMMM squid I found this also rather interesting. http://www.stripes.com/article.asp?section=104&article=60160 I know he attended the Commander in Chief's ball and one of the guys in my squadron went, but I myself and many other servicemember's think it would have been a far greater gesture to make an appearance at the Salute to Heroes Ball.

    So why did you say that?? Drama Queen? Do you have a fucking problem with me? I don't know you, I don't think I've ever talked to you before. Now you want to come attacking me? Like I said, i was looking for responses to what I think was a bad judgement call on the part of my Commander in Chief and you're turning this into a personal attack on me. What's your fucking problem?
