Sorry if some doesn’t make sense I meant the truck pulled up I tried making it short
@Andres77. The U. S. and the world did nothing? People like you bitch and moan when we are the world's police now you bitch when we are not.
@KrakenAttackin I'm retired military and I am completely antiwar. I know better than many people how horrific war is. I'm also anti genocide. But I'm more anti genocide than I am anti war. I also hate career politicians that don't listen to military commanders advice on how to get in, save the victims of the genocide and then get the fuck out and find ways to profit from the misery of thousands. The last time I think we came closest to doing it right was in WW2. Eisenhower warned the country to beware of the military industrial complex back in 1952.Respectfully, you're missing my point. It's scary to me that after seeing the nightmarish horrors that governments have inflicted on their own people that it's gearing up to happen right here in our country. It's going to happen to me and you and our neighbors.The world said after the holocaust "never again". But it's getting ready to happen again in our own back yard.That was my point.If you want an adult debate... ahem...
Fair enough, I thought you were just another Gen Y or millennial GAG'er who didn't know shit from shinola. I respect your perspective.
so, I went through the windshield of a truck spent 3 months in a coma, did re-hab since 03, but now I am back
@Calgarydirty69 I bet you wear your seatbelt now.
@Calgarydirty69 Ouch. I guess, I was lucky to only suffer 2fractures to the least effect-causing parts of my spine. Lower-back pain was still horrible & disruptive to normal life, but it's obviously less than what you want though. I'm glad you survived! When was this? I had my accident at the latter part of September 2020. You?
That's so cool
"Cool" isn't quite the word I'd choose. My Faith ultimately is what's brought me through, but it definitely wasn't a "cool" experience 😂
Wow, that's crazy.
Yeah, it was
Did the law get involved?
No, I was in high school, five teachers tried to restrain me but when they saw that it wasn't working they screamed at him to run, and so he did.
@msc545. Do you fly?
@KrakenAttackin Yes, do you?
I used to. Flew in the Navy, flew Regional Jets, Turbo Props, Lear's and Citations. Haven't flown on about 10 years however.
@KrakenAttackin Sounds like fun, and far surpasses anything I do. Single engine, instrument-rated, that's it.
You might like the joke: "A good landing is any landing you walk away from; a GREAT landing is a landing you walk away from *and* you can use the same airplane again".
Yeah, classic aviation humor. I have had my share of shit landings so I can appreciate this. Actually looking back, flying single engine, low and slow, was the most fun flying I have done.
@KrakenAttackin I recently began taking glider lessons. It's really weird to have no engine noise!
I took one glider flights, it was pretty cool. I used to have full-time access to a Baron which was a great job perk. I do miss having access to a plane at no costs.
@KrakenAttackin Hm. The V tail Baron? I flew one just once. It's really twitchy and I think there is a reason it used to be called the "doctor killer".
No a BE-55A. Baron-55, twin engine, 360HP per side.
You are thinking the V-Tail Bonanza.
@KrakenAttackin oh yeah I was thinking that. Long night, lots of work, no sleep. Why do you no longer fly? (sorry if that is a sensitive topic).
I cut myself shaving once 😁
@Andres77 Nope, 90 day wonder.
Ever go by the callsign "Ninja"?
They were F18 pilots doing CAS for us.
@Andres77 No, not me.
@Andres77 Was "Gypsy" a few times.
I was in the late 90's. Was out before 9/11 changed the world.
Holy crap, that would have been terrifying. Glad you're alright! Did you fully recover?
@Andres77 Where was this, Afghanistan or Iraq?
@Ozanne No, not really. Spine and shoulder problems forever.
Wow.. I'm sorry to hear that.
@Ozanne Thanks, I appreciate your good thoughts.
All our support in afghanistan were ac-130
@Andres77 "Ranger is my religion and Spectre is my God". You were in very good hands.
Ow… That was horrible. Were they brought to justice? How are you now? You're in a better position now, I hope?
Oh wow. Do you know if the child survived?
There was an article in the news about it and sadly no. he didn't
