    Yeah there has been some awesome games released since I've been gone. When I get back I'm gonna build a rig so fast your eyes will spontaneously combust when you play games on it hehe. I'm definitely a deprived gamer right now though :(

    Mail call! Yeah that's one's for me! /me adds water to envelope cuz contents have dried /me stirs it all up /me tilts head skyward /me pours contents of envelope all over face and into mouth Thanks for the long distance carl BBA! It's not the same as in person but it'll have to do.


    Yes, part of the training we're giving to the Iraqis is marksmanship. And let me tell you they need it. These guys can't shoot for sh1t. So we rip off a few rounds on their weapons just for fun while we're at the range. It's a decent weapon, I don't like the safety manipulation compared to my M4 but I like the bigger round compared to our pee shooters.

    Yeah the kids really get a kick out of that.

    Well I don't want to brag but for most people it takes 3-4 years, I did it in a little over 2. Errr okay, I'm bragging ;) There are guys who outranked me when I first got to the unit and they would always f*ck with me, ya know new guy type sh1t. And now I outrank some of them so it's kinda funny.

    Yeah definitely man, I miss playing so much. :tup: Skipped UT2003 and I really want to check out UT2004.

    And thanks all for the kind words :tup:

    UT2004 > UT2003

    You didn't miss much. Most of us pretend UT2003 never existed anyway ;)

    I'm glad you're okay. Bugged me that I hadn't heard from you since Christmas, was making me wonder.

    So, instead of staring at a damn wall, go get a hooker.

    L_S, tell us more about Iraq ! I hear they eat rice from big plates with their fingers. And do they have that strange habit like the Lebanese, to drink directly from the water pot ? How's the landscape around the big cities and near the two big rivers ?

    I think every time a thread gets classic'd, all the linked pictures should be moved to somewhere on the BU server, so there's no chance of them disappearing. :)
