Why why why am I always TDY for this? This time I'll be in Korea! Waaaaah!

Someone remind me again - how many trials for torture took place under Saddam? For that matter - I don't have the time to look - how many Serbs have been tried by the UN for war crimes? The second question is serious. Anybody compared the records of who's trying whom for crimes committed in wartime lately? The US Army just completed another trial - with a conviction of the interrogator, Chief Warrant Officer Lewis Welshofer Jr, who killed Iraqi General Mowhoush. -The Armorer


I've been having waaaaaaaaay too much fun with The Mechanical Contrivium... WAY too much fun!

RINO Sightings is up!

This has the potential to get ugly - and I *don't* think government subscribers should get a pass.

I call a foul! I clearly laid out in this post some new rules for this year. I ran into my first egregious violation of this one just at lunch:

New Rule: The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the a$$ hole. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a "decaf grande half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n'-Low and one NutraSweet," ooh, you're a huge a$$ hole.

I'm at Barista's, a *drive-thru* coffee place. The twitterpate in front of me took 3 (count 'em, I did), *3* minutes to *make* her order. It's a frickin' drive-thru at lunchtime, you DOLT! And it was for *one* drink, not an office full. Not seem like a long time? Sit still and watch a clock for 3 minutes. Then add 4 to make the thing. 7 minutes out of a 60 minute hour to serve one drink to one customer. Okay, I return this thread to it's original, upright position. -The Armorer
