      I was out for some time doing School and OCS (yup, I'm an Officer now). So how is everyone doing.

    • Riding the Tin Dragon.

      11 years ago

      Haldeth

      We shuffle onto the Tin Dragon,
      We are all mad for doing this,
      We few; we crazy; we excited few,
      “Sit down†yells the load master pressing the button that
      Closes the back of our tin host, and seals us into our fate.

      Rise and climb into the black velvet sky my Tin Dragon
      "10 MINUTES" I yell into the void
      It is echoed back at me by exhilarated voices in the dark.

      "Get READY" I yell again just to see if anyone is really there.
      This time there is no echo.

      Level out oh, tin bird of the night, and though your wings do not flap you still fly true.

      "STAND UP" now I'm sure that only I can hear my voice.
      The darkness stirs and like stars appearing in the sky one by one I see the glow
      Of wild excited eyes.
      "HOOK UP" I want to see the void come to life, and with this command it does,
      I am master of the darkness.

      I move to the Dragon’s tail and look to my escape, I clear the doorway and prepare to let loose the darkness into the velvet cloak of night.

      Now I stand in the portal to another world the void to my back to my front the rushing wind and the earth a half-mile below. I look to the night and the tin wing of my Dragon host and am… at peace. My fear has left me with the rushing wind. I am one with the adventure.

      A hard tap on my shoulder jerks me out of my trance and I am once more face to face with the wild eyes of madness. A single boney digit is thrust into my face and I nod in agreement.

      "ONE MINUTE" I tell really only to myself, though the resulting echo is discomforting

      Again I look to the door where I'm most happy and long to enter it again, yet another tap pulls me back into the Dragon. I nod in agreement.

      "30 SECONDS" Now I can see that the void has come to full life and the glowing eyes of madness are now brighter than ever. Their glow now illuminating their faces and the painted joker smile is on all of them.

      "STAND BY" the first madman steps into my portal and awaits my releasing command.

      My tin Dragon tells me it’s time for us to depart until we meet again.

      "GO" I command the joker of the void to embrace the night, as the Tin Dragon expels them one by one. Once they are all gone I look to Tin Dragon once more a pray a silent prayer that I can be inside her once again, and then I fall into the night.

      The air is sweet and cool and surrounds me like a familiar lover, cradling me in her arms and rocks me gently until I land back into the hard reality.

    • The Wisdom of TV

      My son who is 3 1/2 has been watching Avatar: The Last Airbender on Nickelodeon just before he goes to bed at night. Well I was sure that he had not learned anything from this show and viewed it at most kids his age as mindless entertainment. Well the other day he told me†sharing is how we make friends" this is of course three-year-old logic, yet it is very powerful to have my son tell me this having learned this from a TV show. I now pay more attention to this show in particular.
      My son and I spent more time together over this Holiday season as I was not home for his first two. So we got to know each other better. Now I'm not an advocate of TV as a parent, yet I do know that a tired child will be very sill and quiet in front of the idiot box. So there is no need to condemn TV or its content as parents we are all responsible for what our children are seeing on TV and we are better if we slow down and watch it with them. I will say that as far as life lessons go 'Avatar' does a very good job. Well do Nickelodeon.

      We are a proud few. We who bear witness to our hero and villain’s exploits, the battles of our allies and adversaries, and the trials of our knights and dark lords. We who pass on the epic poems of success and sorrow, betrayal and redemption, victories and defeats, and those little moments that lighten our soul or break our hearts. We are the 13th Warriors.

    • My view on Religion

      13 years ago

      Haldeth

      All religions have the same basic message, “Be a good person and be good to othersâ€Â. It is the interpretation of the religion that gets in the way. Many religions went though a well for the lack of a better phrase a “teenage period†of violence, (Buddhism is the exception) Islam is a religion of peace. None of what is being done in the Middle-East in the name of Islam is based on the Koran. The dress of women and the punishment of criminals are all from the stories of Mohamed. Read the Koran.
      Christianity when through the same thing with the Spanish inquisition, none of what was done in Spain was ever in the Bible. Jesus preached love and tolerance, yet as with many religions it was hijacked by extremist who wanted to further their own political agenda and used religion to give themselves legitimacy, and so it is with Islam. The people who do these horrible acts are nothing more that criminals who are using religion to give themselves legitimacy, they are not representative of any real religion.

      Late afternoon, actually. :P

      I keep forgetting how many Scandinavians emigrated to the States ... do you have a boring -sen/-son last name, or something cooler? Norway's got better last names than Denmark. (The Faroe Islands suck in that department, either you get something like Hansen or Jensen, or your granddaddy decided to opt for something geographical and difficult to spell like á Torkilsheyggi.)

      The Faroese are originally from Norway, too, if you go back far enough -- so I guess we're distantly related. smiley8.gif

      Enjoying a few hours of pass and checking up on friends. I'm A-1-4. I'd say to look for one of the 12 guys out of 165 who are wearing BDUs, but we're all being forced to wear the accursed ACUs for grad. No matter, I wore BDUs to the class photo, and that's forever!

      Yeah, that was nice. It's a little bittersweet, because, no matter how hard I try, it is impossible for me to dislike Favre. So, happy they lost, slightly unhappy Favre might retire. It was made easier, because my buddy's wife just started to cackle and laugh during the post-game yelling, "What!?! Is the little girlie-man going to cry now?!?"

      That was pretty cool.

      to get D2 working on vista just install it (if you got to that step) otherwise, Right click on the installer, or on the shortcut or whatever, but "Run as Administrator"

      that will solve all your problems.

      Tell you what, they're right when they say the instructors don't have to break you off in mountains...the mountains will do it for them. Repeating that phase SUCKED. But no one will ever be able to talk shit when I sew that white thread in, that's for sure. I desperately wish I'd been able to grad with my original set of bro's, but I'll be happy to grad on 25 Jan no matter what. No more recycles when it comes to Florida--I've got a job at Bragg to get to!
