Re: REQUIRED: Introduce Yourself

This conversation is going round in circles. There are all kinds of smiles, even the momentary I-can´t-believe-this-is-happening-to-me smile of someone looking at their own misfortune from a detached perspective. I think you are perfectly aware that the no-grief smiles CluedIn is talking about are ...

Re: REQUIRED: Introduce Yourself

It seems like you are attempting to create "new norms" with your bullshit. My 6 year old is brutally murdered, and I fly to DC to meet Obama and smiling/laughing is "normal" TO YOU because a few days have passed? That only happens in Hollywood movies and government psyops. No normal human being wou...

Re: REQUIRED: Introduce Yourself

First you asked if was appropriate or normal for family members to be smiling and laughing immediately after their loved ones are killed. I replied with it was not unusual to see smiles at a funeral. I also said I thought it would be weird to see a parent smile instantly after their child was killed...

Re: REQUIRED: Introduce Yourself

CluedIn, I think it would be weird and inappropriate to smile and laugh instantly after a child is killed. I am not aware of anyone who has acted like this though. I suppose using the smiling after a week example was not correct. If a person laughed and gave interviews before their dead child's body...

Re: REQUIRED: Introduce Yourself

The conversation did not work it's way back to me, I was present when it happened. While my co-workers are decent guys, I thought some of their choices of friends was bad. They expected people to believe their every word and when one of my co-workers questioned his friends opinion he was insulted. I...

Re: REQUIRED: Introduce Yourself

I am most interested in how people decide that something happened in a certain way then choose what evidence they find convincing based on how well it will support the conclusion they previously arrived at. For example some of my co-workers were talking to friends who said a person could never smile...

Re: REQUIRED: Introduce Yourself

What didn't I notice?

The forum is different than others I lurked at. As I said above, I heard someone talking about it then checked it out.

What do you mean by my right to to ask socially questionable questions? I do and say anything I want.

Re: REQUIRED: Introduce Yourself

I know very little about military intelligence. I operated various machinery on the boat to support air systems, ventilation and sanitation. I learned how to drive the boat, operate sonar and stand security watch. I also got good at washing dishes in the galley for a few months. I was promoted three...

Re: REQUIRED: Introduce Yourself

Interesting things would be stuff like experiencing rapid dives and emergency surfacing operations of the boat, watching the TV showing the view through the periscope, pulling into foreign ports, meeting exotic women and avoiding even more exotic VD. Haha. The crap would be long hours on watch and w...

Re: REQUIRED: Introduce Yourself

Thanks Cluedin.

I broke my leg while hiking in the woods. Had a bunch of surgery and limped around for a year before they decided I could not go to sea anymore. Did not really like the navy anyway. Some interesting stuff but too much crap to put up with.

Re: REQUIRED: Introduce Yourself

[Admin Observation by SCS: Oh yes. . . Shopguy. . . now that was memorable for me. Notice, he made 11 posts over a 5 day period. And he never managed to so much as post outside of the “Introduce Yourself” thread. Please read my final post to him, which is followed by Simon’s most epic dismissal of ...
