It is 7 degrees out. It feels like -13.
I was walking to the libary... and saw this:
I have never(not that I remember, anyhow) seen the river frozen. Eeek.
Oh, and the promised picture of my new airsoft gun:

Since stomping that kid. Sometimes I need to beat on someone to stay sane(I have a feeling Scragman is in the same boat. Just beat on someone. You'll feel better)
This is how the fight went down: I did a drop. I put my right foot behind his right leg. I put my right hand on his chin. I pushed with my right hand and pulled back with my right leg(SSgt Wilkins taught me that one, the hard way). When he was on the ground I did a stomping. I will get a pucture of the boots soon. He was bawling like a little baby.
This kid was just freaking asking for it. He had just turned 18(Thank God). He tried to act tough, and got beat down by a geek. This is awesome.
Lesson here: Don't fuck with my friends. You can mess with me all ya want, just don't do it to my friends.
In other news, I got a new airsoft gun. It is schweet. Really accurate. Makes me happy. I will get a pic up later.

Well, I am friends with both ends of this couple who are dating. He followed me up when I went to take my tray up at lunch. he gave me a note and said to give it toohis girlfriend. He said he had to go. I gave him a funny look and said "Okay..."
He left, I gave the girl the note. She looked at it for two seconds and then started crying. He broke up with her with a NOTE! I felt like a jerk. I was a stark raving lunitic. Good thing he ran, cause I was gonna stomp his coward ass. I skipped english and consoled the female end of the deal. I then prowled the halls looking for the male end. I didn't find him. Someone told me later that he was in a bathroom. Probably hiding. He better be real nice next time I see him.
REALLY FREAKING NICE.

Three Days Later
The White House
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Good morning, Mr. President.Ã¢â‚¬Â Hoffman said and shook the President's hand.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Morning Chip.Ã¢â‚¬Â The President replied.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“How are the kids?Ã¢â‚¬Â Hoffman asked.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“They are doing okay, cept' one is sick.Ã¢â‚¬Â The President said with a frown.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“That stuff is going around. Damn winter.Ã¢â‚¬Â Hoffman stated and got a laugh.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Listen, we are going to get your Marine back. If the Lebanese won't deal I will let your Marines kick in the door.Ã¢â‚¬Â The President said and sipped at his coffee. The Lebanese representative would be here in minutes if the Marine guards out front didn't kill him first. Understandably, they were upset about the whole thing. The Marines are a brotherhood. Don't fuck with a Marine without careful consideration, because every Marine you meet after that would want deal out some payback. Doesn't matter if they knew him or not. They are not happy.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Well, lookie here.Ã¢â‚¬Â The Marine gate guard said to his partner as the Lebanese representative's car pulled up.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Let's make 'em nervous.Ã¢â‚¬Â The other Marine said. His partner nodded. They stepped out and stopped the car.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We need to search your vehicle, please step out of your vehicle and surrender all weapons.Ã¢â‚¬Â The Marine said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have no weapons.Ã¢â‚¬Â The driver said tirelessly.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Bullshit. Out.Ã¢â‚¬Â The other Marine said. The Driver and bodyguard got out and stood there. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Please lean up against the car and put your hands on the hood of the car. They complied and the Marine guards started their search. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Gun, H&K USP.Ã¢â‚¬Â The Marine who was searching the bodyguard said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“He lied to us. Cuff him.Ã¢â‚¬Â The other Marine said. Hoffman watched this from the front stairs. He gave laugh and looked at the two guards. They had a slight grin. The representative was hurried into the meeting with the President and General Hoffman.
After everyone was ready the meeting started proper. The President started off things.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“So, do you have a legitimate reason for keeping our good Corporal in captivity?Ã¢â‚¬Â The President asked, skipping through the niceties
Ã¢â‚¬Å“He is being kept because he is a spy.Ã¢â‚¬Â The representative replied simply.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“No, he was there on leave.Ã¢â‚¬Â Hoffman replied. Everyone knew that was a lie.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I beg to differ, we found spy gear and illegal weapons including silenced sniper rifles and pistols, explosives, and neck knives. This man is a spy, and he will be dealt with like one.Ã¢â‚¬Â The representative replied with a smug smile. The President nodded to General Hoffman.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Okay, here is how this will go down if you do not cooperate.Ã¢â‚¬Â A 3D digital makeup popped up of the prison that the Marine was being held in. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We will fly a Night Stalker helicopter to the prison and drop off five Force Recon Marines who will enter your prison.Ã¢â‚¬Â A simulation of a helicopter landing on the roof and dropping off Marines. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Then they will enter the prison and silently kill and guards that get in their way. Of course we want to keep casualties down to a minimum, but it is kinda difficult in this situation. We will then extract Corporal Schmidt and get back on the helo and leave. Mission time: Five minutes. Your choice. I would choose the former, because we are pretty good at this type of thing.Ã¢â‚¬Â Hoffman finished and gave a polite smile and the representative started to sweat. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Oh, and when we get our Corporal back we will give you back your bodyguard.Ã¢â‚¬Â He said and the representative left with his tail between his legs.
CNN News. One day later
Ã¢â‚¬Å“In a speech today the Pope condemned the violence going on in Beirut and Lebanon. He called for an end of violence by the end of the week or he will send the Papal Guards to enforce his will. He commented that the Jewel of the Middle East should not be scarred by blood.Ã¢â‚¬Â The reporter finished.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“What kind of action can you expect from these Papal Guards?Ã¢â‚¬Â another newsman asked.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Papal Guards are actually Swiss Mercenaries and have always been since medieval times. They are ranked as some of the most professional soldiers right up there with the United States Marine Corps, the German Bunderswhier, and the Gurkha Rifles. The Papal Guards would act as peacekeepers and will enforce it on anyone. It doesn't matter who, it could be the Rebels, the Lebanese army, or even the Israelis.Ã¢â‚¬Â A military analyst responded.
General Hoffman shut off the TV. They would need to go ahead with this mission or not do it at all. With the Papal Guards there and not being under the umbrella of NATO yet(which the Papal Guards would respect, if the Marines were), they would be in a bit of trouble if they assaulted the prison with the damn Swiss around. The analyst was not wrong, the Swiss would give trouble to even his Marines, if they shot at the Marines(which was un-likely, but possible. Doing so would make the Papal States many enemies overnight.), the hammer would fall, sure, but it would make more problems then he wanted. The damn Lebanese knew this and they felt safe. He had to get the go-ahead and he had to get it now. He picked up the phone.
