Problems with the "D" word, eh? Bananas, rice and toast, mate.

Yep. Those carbs addle the brain.

It's a random-ish user name assigned by Yahoo when I signed up. I am the 85th Neilm in the UK apparently. I don't know how the ranking was done!!!

I am significantly older than 27.

I had a choice this morning...actually do some work or finally catch up with the Worst AAR in the history of the world. We all know I made the right choice!


See..THAT is the reason the Eurozone is slipping back into recession. Not enough productivity! [;)]

Now, in my case, I "wasted" 3 1/2 minutes adding silly seaplane search arcs to the map not out idleness or sloth, but because I am making a political statement...the John Gault thing.


By ra way, please tell us the "85" is the year you graduated from university or got married or something and NOT the year you were born.

Now why do that [&:]

There's this handy little feature which will display all search arcs on the map - but don't ask me what it is 'cos I can't remember. I did read the manual 3 years ago but have forgotten a lot of it [:(]

Of course you would like us to believe that you've never read it ......

Why yes! I think it's ALT/CTRL/F6 while simultaneously making Maori war chant sounds into the mike.

The range of the arcs is misleading. IIRC the true search only extends about 12 hexes even on longer-legged aircraft. [:)]

Don't be fooled Sprior, CaptDave is almost certainly on the side of Evil. Undoubtedly he's a Japanese Fanboy, probably a spy for Rear Admirar Nerson, and worst of all, he likely bills by the hour.

***********With 1st Bn, 503rd PIR, Dadjangas, Mindanao, Feb. 22, 1943(c)**************


The lead company of 1st Bn, 503rd crests a small hill and enters the outskirts of Dadjangas. They are met by a small group of dignitaries and children in local costume. There is one white man among them who seems to be the spokesperson.



White man in linen slacks: Welcome! Welcome to Dadjangas. On behalf of the Chamber of Commerce and Bali Hai Club, Dadjangas, welcome! <he hands out hand made American flags>

There is chilled Papaya juice on the left there boys. Please have some. Welcome young man. Captain, when you deem it appropriate there is chilled Pabst Blue Ribbon in the club. Welcome all!...............

Probably a clever ruse to keep the clerk from looking at her face. The problem is the security tape. They will just get straight female officers or gay male officers to review it. Did anyone here notice what she looked like?




sprior -> RE: Robusto Havana (11/29/2012 3:56:49 PM)

Could be an interesting identity parade:

Too big.
Too small.
Too perky.
Too droopy.
Aaah, just right.

I said touch her on the SHOULDER!

Sorry.

I did my part as an international citizen and stared at the video. Several times. Unfortunately, I was unable to identify her completely. I may have to look again.

"made a bust" [:)]


Jokes about breastesses are easy to make because the English language has about 312 different words to describe them. It's sort of like the Innuit and 65 words for "snow".

***************Feb. 22, 1943(c) (After rooking at map)************


--That AP thak "took one up the chuff" is at 50% flotation damage and will have to divert to Namlea to disembark. She was carrying about 400 Marines and some guns so they will have to be left behind. The rest of the taffy will head for Dadjangas.

--Operation Skinflint going pretty well so far with the exception of the torpedoed AP. The other bug is the airfield at Sangi is not going to be ready on D-Day+5 (the field is at 10% at dusk on D-Day). That was a bit too ambitious. Suppries and an EAB unlaoding at Sangi now. Cebu USN base force with beachmasters (sailors not walruses) is en route to Dadjangas via LCT and whatever those other troop carrying small landing craft are called.

--APD's disembarking Army infantry at Dadjangas tonight if things go well. I hope the guy in charge understands he has to get out of there by daybreak. Sea Bees landing tonight at Dadjangas right on schedule.

--The rest of 503rd will try to air drop at Dajangas tomorrow.

Cap Mandrake -> RE: Sun Damage (11/30/2012 3:37:31 PM)

So we are having this Family Feud competition at work with medical questions. Yeah, sure, it's seriously geeky, but it's fun and everyone tries to show off.

So anyway, we have two teams and each side has to send up one guy/gal to answer the speed question. The other side sends up the rheumatologist recently graduated from har fellowship which means she had to study for the Internal Medicine and Rheumatology boards. Even worse, she's Asian, so most likely her competitor will get his/her ass kicked.

So on our side nobody wants to go up. At least one of the internists should go. They're all pussies, it gets really pitiful, so I finally volunteer to go up. Maybe the question will be on rotavirus serotypes or something?

We are standing up there ready to ring in ......."What do these drugs have in common? Procainamide..."

Me: So I start thinking..."antiarrhythmic...never used it my career"

Moderator: "Hydralazine...."

Me: "Hmm....an older anti-hypertensive..never used it my life...maybe cardiac drugs? I need at least one more"

Moderator: "Minocycline..."

Me: "Antibiotic? What the He.."

DING!

Asian chick: "DRUG INDUCED LUPUS!"

Moderator: THAT'S CORRECT! <WILD APPRAUSE AND MURMURINGS OF RESPECT>

Me: "WTF. A f****** rhematology question?" <Goes back to seat. Tries to rook invisible>

It seems like somebody was getting paid by the fuselage length. Or maybe the union help got paid by the number of rivets.

You could set them at 15,000 feet and they will level bomb. At least they won't be susceptible to ground fire. Of course, there had better not be any enemy fighters.


Failing that, you could always use the mighty Wapiti.

Hey she's kinda cute. Here she is "drilling" at the Vultee plant according to the legend.

Can't get the picture to post.

By ra way, concerning your "Operation Skinflint". Why didn't you take the ops name one step further and name it "Pocahontas" instead?

I mean, the ops also seems to go with bare essentials. [sm=innocent0009.gif][:'(]




Chickenboy -> RE: Sun Damage (11/30/2012 6:31:20 PM)

Grollub,

That's "Skinflint", not "Skinflute".

Pocahantas Girl is throwing a Twelve Days of Christmas party next Friday. Twelve course, each one themed to one of the Twelve Days of Christmas verses[:D] Not sure exactly how anyone other than competitive eaters are going to do that unless she installs a vomitorium. [:)]

I suppose some of the courses might be alcohol in which case there might be wardrobe malfunctions but I'm pretty sure the guests are at least supposed to arrive in appropriate attire.

You did one of these last year too, IIRC. I'm still sore at you for completely ignoring our incessant mewlings about Pocahantas Girl's Halloween costume. We haven't heard "boo" about it, and certainly haven't seen any pictures...[:(]
