  1. That is the creepiest thing i have seen.....ever.
  2. Geeze
  3. At the end of the cold war when Russia became a cleptocracy Russian generals were selling off all the military weaponry they could get their hands on. For Gods sake an aircraft carrier was sold to North Korea for a paltry 5 million US dollars. And the suitcase nuke, that was revealed to be the brainchild of the KGB. Think that?s a joke? That info came straight from Vladimir Denisov a former head of the Russian security council and Aleksey Yabolov former environmental advisor to the late Boris Yeltsen. In the early 90s Russian chrominium-50 was being sold on the black market for $25,000 and Cesium -137 for $1million. I think it is unfair to point the finger at the US. From what I understand Russia is raping the 3rd world when it comes to weapon sales. Yes we do provide Israel with tanks but the small arms they make themselves through IMI (Israel Military Industries LTD). Britain and the rest of Europe produce most of their own small arms and equipment. Saab is the largest supplier of jet engines for the French Mirage fighter jets. Then who are we selling to? I don?t have an answer to that one. US weapons are expensive. The problem is the people selling to the 3rd world where all the blood shed and craziness is happening. The US is not just a democracy but it is a capitalist society. But without the The Military-Industrial Complex we would not have solar power, GPS, Mobile phones, the internet, and some of the leaps we have made in first response medical treatment and prosthetics (sad to say about the last two)
  4. You are correct in one aspect weldonsd the US does make a lot of money in the weapons export business. The following is from a report by Tamar Gabelnick from 2002. ?According to the report, "Conventional Arms Transfers to Developing Nations 1994-2001," released on August 8th, the United States has had the largest share of both new contracts and deliveries to the world for at least 8 years in a row. In calendar year 2001, U.S. arms manufacturers made new agreements worth $12.1 billion and delivered $9.7 billion worth of arms, capturing 45% of both markets. The United States' closest competitor, Russia, came in a distant second with $5.8 billion in new contracts and $3.6 billion in arms deliveries. But Russia is not a real rival for U.S. arms makers. Its main clients are China and Iran, off limits to U.S. firms, and former Soviet bloc states in Asia and Africa that cannot afford expensive U.S. weapons systems. India, on the other hand, may be one place where Russian and American firms go to battle over a large market. In September 2001, the U.S. government dropped a ban on arms sales to both India and Pakistan, permitting transfers even during the height of the crisis between these nuclear-armed states. India is a longtime major Russian client.? Now that being said, the most popular weapon around the world is the AK 47. The Russian T-55 and T-62 tanks are the most popular tanks around the world. Finally the most popular plane for third world countries is the Russian MiG, followed by the US F4 phantom. These things I know from personal experience from my time in the US Marines, 3 years in 2nd battalion 4th Marines surveillance and target acquisition platoon (S. T. A.) and 1 year in 1st Surveillance Reconnaissance and Intelligence Group Warfare Simulation Systems. (1st SRIG WSS).
  5. I apologize for nothing. If you don't want someone to get your goat don't tie it in the front yard.
  6. happyness is not getting what you want it is wanting what you have.
  7. A person has to repent to be forgivin of sin, but we can't repent for someone else's sin. If we are being punished for Adam's sin then we are doomed.
  8. Take care!
  9. In some cultures homosexuality is completely normal. Look at the masai for instance. A completely bad ass warrior tribe that nobody fucks with and homosexuality at a young age isn't looked at as abnormal. No, I don't think homosexuals should be treated differently. They have the same rights as everyone else.
  10. 20 more min. of pink floyd and one more bottle of tequila and i'm next.
  11. Last night I had a really, really bizarre dream. A nightmare really. In the dream I was standing on a hill in a grave yard. I was surrounded by 10 ? 15 corpse children with glowing red and orange eyes. The girls were wearing in white dresses and the boys were wearing black shorts and jackets with white shirts and black bow ties. They were a hideous parody of British school children. The fog hanging in the night air made halos around the children?s glowing lifeless eyes. They were carrying unusual implements of destruction, swords, chainsaws, forks, leg bones, ect. Their leader was a tall thin bald man wearing a white lab coat. He looked older than humanly possible. His skin was pulled tightly across his face like someone that had had way too much plastic surgery. He had a very hawkish nose and a mouth that was pulled into a permanent rictus grin. This motley group of undead became my ungodly taskmasters for the night. Sending me to retrieve seemingly innocuous items, a dartboard, a bottle of Chianti, a banana peel, a human ear, and lastly a child?s teddy bear. I was relived, thinking my enslavement to this ghoulish crew was over, but the nightmare was far from over. Mimicking the mannerisms of a living child one of the undead handed me a sledgehammer. Then he took me by the hand and led me to the head of a shambling child zombie army shambling for a sleeping nearby town. Luckily for me I will never know what horrors would have been done because the early light of morning woke me from the macabre nightmare. This was by far the most bizarre dream I have ever had. I have been pondering this all day, ?what the **** does it mean??. If anyone knows anything about interpreting dreams let me know because I am at a ******* loss.

  13. so now all I need is someone to stick 1000 pins in me. great, ******* wonderful, I hate needles.
  14. Next time you want to kick a glass door use someone elses foot (or other body part), not your own. The best solution is to grab a random stranger passing by and ram his or her head through the glass door. This prevents needless injury to you and technically you didn't break the glass, they did. I hope this has been helpful.
  15. Maybe you shouldn't go. I think I know someone that would be happy if ya did'nt
