When I was ready to get out of the service I applied for, and got, a 90 day school cut to attend college. Because I was overseas in Manila and was going to deploy to Kenya before my enlistment was up it was cheaper for them to fly me home from Manila so they granted my 90 day school cut and I came home... but when I was on my way to enroll at college I saw this really cool looking ski boat for sale, so I decided to buy the boat and spend my summer hanging out at various lakes (think Berryessa, Lazs) and blow off college for the summer semester.
I had a blast, too- it was great. But then the dreams started.
They had warned me my 90 day school cut was to- wait for it- attend school, and if I didn't they'd recall me to active duty and make me do the 90 days plus extend my enlistment six months. Of course I blew them off, and I started dreaming they found out I'd skipped school and called me back to active duty and made me go back to boot camp.
I had that dream for years... what was odd was the older I was in real life I was just as old in my dream, and I was a relatively old man out there on the obstacle course in my dream. It was fucked up.
Does anybody else ever get that dream where you're sitting in your 10th grade English class and you realize you aren't wearing any pants? That dream is worse than the Flying Monkee dream.
Watching this now on animal Planet. Has actual footage take from passengers and the boats.
Makes the shark from JAWs look like no big deal.
Several "oh FUCK!" moments
Not sure if they are being shown here in this Vid. just to give a heads up to turn on animal planet like NOW.
This doesnt contain what I saw though may be from the same show
If that happened to me I'd I'd give that boat captain a really bad Yelp review.
Time flies... You have my sympathy because nothing will make you older than a teenage daughter who is convinced she is smarter than you.
We're getting an exit strategy- it sucks here. Politically, weatherwise, economy- it all sucks. You're lucky you fled when you did.
I'm not sure why I was there, but I feel as if I was sent to retrieve someone.
I didn't have my principal with me at the time, I was just walking/floating along as the lost souls swirled around me. I would look to see if I recognized any of their faces, but none were familiar.
When I turned back, there he was right in front of me... a look of smug satisfaction on his face. I didn't have a weapon, but I had a plan... I was going to rip his fucking head off with my bare hands. I reached back, and just before I drove my fist through his neck with all of my might I screamed out, "I WILL KILL YOU, YOU MOTHERFUCKER!" It was difficult to make the words come out and my voice was several octaves low... that's when I knew I was dreaming.
The screaming woke my Wife and I both up. My heart was pounding out of my chest, my breathing was shallow and rapid.
Here's the strange part... my first thought was, "maybe I'm not supposed to do that?" After all, he is one of God's own... an Angel that has lost his way. Maybe he is the balance that we need?
Nah... fuck that. If I see him again the bitch is toast.
Going back to sleep.
Wish me luck.
Nightmares can be caused by watching Pauly Shore movies.
Heya Eric!! I hope life is good? It's been terrible out here...sun never did come out today. My uncle had to evacuate from the Susanville area, my brother had to flee the Oak fire in Brooktrails, a niece was evacuated from Middleton, a good friend lost her house and all she owned, Hwy 101 is closed and travelers are parked in cars everywhere cause there's no rooms to let, and now we have an arsonist starting fires...
The only good thing
about getting choked out is the lack of sunshine keeps the temps down, but other than that it sucks.
You still in the Breaking Bad house?
Luckily no trucks were lost.
Thats a high pressure airgun,you can see the pressure gauge below the barrel. You need a high pressure compressor to fill those up,your run of the mill air compressor wont have the PSI require to fill it up.IIRC they require something like 5000 psi.
A few years back I wanted to get a high pressure air rifle,they make some nice ones in 357,44/45 and 50 cal and you can actually take big game with them. The problem is they are treated just like a firearm up here as the MV exceeds the limit of 495fps.
Here's some history.
112 yesterday- one brother got evacuated, a niece got evacuated, Hwy 101 is closed, and a good friend lost their home and possessions. It's so volatile we're staying close to home- if we leave and a fire starts they won't let us back in. Crazy shit-
Hey, I'm glad Goat has finally seen the light. Right on, Brother.
Raised by Wolves - Ridley Scott directed new TV show, it's on HBO though, so you have to subscribe or pirate it.
First 3 episodes are out, just found it today, really good IMO. Travis Fimmel from "Vikings" (Ragnar) acts in it.
It seems to be a little darker than the Three Little Pigs my Mom read to me.
I'm starting to hate it here... it's so smoky from the fires we can't see the sun and my leaf blower blows the soot and ash off my cars. It'll be 110 this weekend, and the economy is mostly shut down and we wonder every time we leave if we'll get burned out.
Politics are shit, and taxes are oppressive and Steph wants to stay because of the kids and I'm like fuck this, we could get the fuck out of here and go someplace normal. Maybe sell out, find a place with two homes and move with the kids.
This week's video and I shot it w/o the camera woman. She got pissed when she found out but that isn't my problem. I've suggested several times that maybe she could watch some videos on how to shoot videos but she never did. Then I get a comment on one of my videos to get rid of the camera person, when I pointed that out and asked if she'd watched any videos she got mad and stormed out of my office. Again, her anger and refusal to improve are not my problem.
I have a few things to improve on with this method of videography, but I'll get there soon enough.
Hmmm... Not to be an asshole here, but I have a You-Tube account, and I'm good at commenting....
God help them if someone who's tired of their shit gets a hold of them.
Yup.... I feel sorry if the Commandant of Camp Everglades gets ahold of that sucker... I have a feeling he'll be used to train attack dogs.
If a Finger post were a song...
OK guys- I hate to be the bearer of bad news but Trump will lose. Believe me, I'm sorry- but it is what it is. We are entering a political era of rule by party. It'll be an Animal Farm world.
