  • Go ask your grandmother how to make those fluffy and thick American pancakes. We fail miserably every time and all the Martha Stewart, Nigella and Jamie Oliver recipes haven't done us any good.

    I am so confused. Help, how do I pancake?

    Also, there is a Lithuanian lieutenant or something here marching around with a bunch of nonrates at damage controlman school. So weird.
    Oh, nice of you to drop by. How was it?

    When I did my military service there was only a single ensign in the battalion, but loads of LJG's. They varied greatly as well, as our superior was fresh out of school and pretty much "a simple" university graduate, while this other bloke had just gotten into Estonia's most badass spec ops unit.

    At the end of the day, job position > rank.

    Yeah, that is weird. In our military everyone starts out as an O-1 unless you have some special experience or skill that lets you skip a grade. Doctors and lawyers can go in at O-3, so can warrant officers who become commissioned. People who go through OCS with a bachelors or graduate from an academy or ROTC program all start at O-1.

    And grunt work isn't bad. It's relaxing in a lot of ways and leaves you some time to acclimate to the military.

    Not the Expos, to quote my brother. OOOOOOOOOOOH'S all the way. Not that I've been tracking their progress much.
    "Homeslice" has to be the single greatest grammatical achievement of the last decade.

    You didn't invent it, did you? If you did, I'd have to add grammatical engineering to your list of proficiencies.

    Nope. It's one of those not-sure-if-it's-slang-or-mock slang words that is only used for sarcastic purposes, so far as I know.
    What did you mean by "sick of interning"?
    Sick of the job? Or you're just not having the status you'd want to ?

    I was at my internship. I was sick of what I was doing and very bored. So I went home rather than continuing to slack off and talk to you.
    So this time I lay down in wait for a response (both from here and another place), but happen to fall asleep for 3 hours.
    Saw you on chat later (around 4am), but relly had to sleep. And tell your sister to log earlier as well, even I'm not that desperate.

    "Ugh, what time is it... 4am, let's see who's on chat (slept in front of the PC). Walker... ah, man."
    a little later
    "What time is it now... 5am, who's on chat now... wha.. heeeey. Damn, too tired..."

    In my defense, I was peacefully playing Mass Effect when I was told "You're staying up till midnight when your girlfriend gets here." Then I got on the chat room and putzed around until my girlfriend got there.

    Solid defense. Accepted.
    It actually happened that real people wanted to talk to me yesterday so I had to split.

    I forgot myself downstairs, eating.

    DINNER IS THE SHIZNIT.

    I left so I could focus on doing work, then I ended up back here anyway. ****.
    Should it be "an historic event" or "a historic event"? Everything in me wants it to be the latter because it's a consonant after the vowel but people seem to opt for the former...?

    I aim to please :D And we sometimes say A like "uh" and sometimes like the vowel should be said - depends on the word afterwards. I would say: "ay historic event" rather than "ah historic event" but that's just me.

    The closest we got to universal service is that a lot of universities/colleges required that you do two to four years of reserve officer training corps (while you were there, no active requirement,) but most of those stopped being mandatory in the 70s, too.
    Walker

    For some reason the universal conscription thing seems to be a feature of those European countries we always stereotype as liberal, Eastern European countries, somewhat-to-totally paranoid places like Switzerland and Israel, Asia...
    Walker
    Walker
    Okay, fine, LOTS of people do it. But it seemed really weird to me when I first heard about it. Thought it was something just the Israelis and the Swiss did 'cause they were weird, until I learned different.
    Just the literature guy I want to speak to! Question: is it correct in American books for the following sentence to be written thusly:

    "he had a couple quarts of milk". Should it not be, "he had a couple OF quarts of milk"?

    I actually haven't read a Tom Clancy book in years, and if I do go back I'll probably just read old ones. Wanna know something cool? Tom Clancy is a Marylander. Part-owner of the Baltimore Orioles. First book of his I ever read was part of the Young Net Force series, my brother got it because it started off with a baseball game at Camden Yards.

    I didn't get any books at all this Christmas, first time that ever happened.

    Also, that was a lie. I just read... one whose name I can't remember, but I listened to the audiobook of the one where there's the Mexican drug cartel getting used by the Taliban terrorists to sneak SAMs into the US and hit airliners.

    One of the things I like about him is that he doesn't forget the Coast Guard. If his books have a place where the Coast Guard could be reasonably expected to be involved, they are.

    Do they have a leopard in sunglasses as their mascot?

    Huh. Maybe they do come in balls. I retract my previous statement.

    Also, I admit that I haven't really been addicted to them since about eighth grade, but still. They are the quintessential Geek American food. Mountain Dew and Doritos and/or Cheetos.
    I just started reading the Iliad. I feel so cultured now.

    Why are you reading it, by the by?
    Arseface
    Arseface
    I hate making associations like that. It's hard to change your idea of what the character is like.

    And why does anyone read anything? I thought it must be a pretty decent book to have been popular for nearly 3000 years. Plus reading it makes me feel cultured and deep.

    Hey, I forgot I was reading this. I stopped reading it for a few weeks because of school and then forgot. Will have to pick it up again.
    Hey Walker. Sorry it has been so long since I have posted. I have been through a lot of rough times, but hopefully things are calming down. I am usually on my 360, getting rid of personal hostility. Anyway, hi how have you been? I will try to post more often.
    Walker
    Walker
    I'm sorry to hear that. Rough personal times suck, but murdering bad guys does generally help. I hope things get better for you.

    Not too bad for me. Busy, but not bad.

    ROUGHLY 1/3 OF A METER, JEEZE, DON'T YOU KNOW NOTHING?

    Also, every time I log onto facebook the people who are both my friends and the product of India bitching about cricket. Is your world cup going on right now or something?
