  1. People came out in droves to watch the first battle of Manassas / Bull Run and were shocked by the violence...because...war!
  2. Agreed, "there is nothing more obnoxious than a warrant officer with over 20." However, you outranked the CSM, pure and simple so he better darn well get over it.
  3. Big Bird was ruined for me when I was in law enforcement. I had a co-worker who was 6' 5" and rotund in the middle, with blonde hair. He was aptly nicknamed "Big Bird" because he resembled the character if Big Bird were to ever don a blue uniform. Then this jackwagon was arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced to 90-something years in prison for child pornography and a BUNCH of other charges. Big Bird will never be the same for me.
  4. I know several people who use that designation, and I think it's appropriate. You are NEVER trying to mislead anyone by claiming to be something you're not.
  5. No. You "snap to" when an officer senior to EVERYONE in the room enters. Additionally, if no officers are present, you call the room to "at ease" and everyone snaps to Parade Rest is an NCO senior to everyone in the room enters.
  6. "Ninety percent of baseball is half mental." Yogi Berra
  7. My German Shepherd is 11 years old, and I know this because he is a retired US Army Military Working Dog (i.e. K9 for the Military Police). His specialty was drug sniffing. We have all his paperwork, including a passport issued by the government of Germany, where he was born.
  8. I had all boys, but if I had had a daughter, naming her after a grandmother would have been a fine choice. My grandmothers were Charlotte and Virginia. My great-grandmothers were Elizabeth (the only one I knew), Dena, Harriet "Hattie", and Julia Ann. My sister was actually named after Julia Ann. I've been an amateur genealogist for about a decade. I've noticed a trend in bygone eras where people passed down the mother's maiden name as middle names. It's sort of akin to having a "junior" on the male side. That's how my grandfather and his father got strange first names. My great-great grandmother was Jessie Burr. His other grandmother's maiden name was Knight. So my great-grandfather was named Burr Knight [my real last name]. He named his son, my grandfather, as junior. My entire life I had no idea why anyone would name their son "Burr." We used to joke that he must have been cold all the time. As it turns out, the family was just honoring the women in our family tree. And, yes, my great--great grandmother Burr was, in fact, a cousin of the infamous Aaron Burr.
  9. If you get the chance, take a tour of historic Harpers Ferry, WV. Not only is it absolutely stunning scenery, with great historic representations of the armory and other industry there, but the building where John Brown holed up and was eventually captured is there.
  10. My experience with Scotch whisky shows this to be largely true. Unfortunately, to get anything I can even keep down my throat means it has to be aged at least 15 years, if not 18. The 15 year stuff is running about $165, and the 18 year (which is much, much better) is almost $300.
  11. Hey Joe, is that your cannon in your signature line?
  12. I broke a metacarpal in my dominant hand once when I was a law dawg. I had arrested an MMA fighter on his 4th DUI and he told me he was going to take my gun and kill me with it. Then he tried. He obviously didn't succeed, but I broke my metacarpal knocking him out. I had to wear a cast for 3 months and when it came off, I couldn't wiggle a single finger. The physical therapy was excruciating and lasted 4 months. That's 7 months I sat the desk....EESH! I refuse to be unprotected. I shoot almost ambidextrously, so I bought a left-handed holster and carried on my weak side. I trained regularly before the injury, so I could draw and fire one-handed with my weak hand. So that's how I carried for 7 months.
  13. Did you get the wind out your way? It was 75 mph here.
