  1. The thing is, even I have a difficult time fitting in airplane seats. My arms spill over into the neighboring chairs and my knees have to be tucked into my chest. I'm also curious why they offered him a second flight if he was "too fat" for the first one...
  2. I can't wait to see if I can get qualified for the space program... See you ladies from space.
  3. I've only ever made furniture before, but that gave me a good enough start for this project I suppose. I figured the worst that could happen with this is I **** up and end up having to purchase one. I come from a family of woodworkers and entrepreneurs, so it may have just been some luck brought on by genetic memory. I really like those swing pictures. Did you take classes recently or as a kid? I've been looking into taking Salsa lessons to improve my speed and rhythm as well as my coordination between my upper and lower body. I used to do classical dancing as a kid, which definitely helped in my natural ability to retain a balanced foot, but it's been a long time since I've done any dancing. You should make a snowperson and pillage/rape it.
  4. ]I'm really sorry to hear about your cats, Jebbers. It's always sad when these things happen, I know I'd be extremely depressed if anything happened to my cats. -- A friend came to visit with their nice camera and got a few photos for me. My best buddy, Major Tom.
  5. I once made a submission for the 420chan LEGObong competition. I didn't win, but after testing it I felt like that really didn't matter. All my LEGO's are now in the possession of underprivileged children since I gave away a lot of junk to goodwill. I kind of regret the decision now, I miss the LEGO's
  6. That's when I usually change the channel. Wrestling should be restricted to 10 second intervals to avoid intense levels of boredom. It annoys me even more that those exact events are how people justify saying that techniques I use are not useful in real events. Last time I checked, a mugger doesn't do a shoot or any wrestling technique, I'm pretty sure punching someone in the face is however a perfectly reasonable strategy for defending myself as it's worked in the past quite successfully.
  7. I watch UFC from time to time, but some people are simply ridiculous with their machismo issues. Anyway, Get Smart is awesome.
  8. It was pretty tough, but it's nice completing a project you feel you'll likely fail. Probably, but after 3 posts it'd likely devolve into a discussion about how I'm a faggot for doing Wing Chun (despite using the dummy for other martial applications) and that if I were to use that "faggot ****" on them, they'd UFC my face into the ground and make me eat their fist, throw it up, then eat it again. Oddly enough most people online learning martial arts seem to forget the key goal of self-discipline and leaving their ego at the door. But since most of them seem to be doing trendy McDojo's teaching "MMA-style", it's no wonder they're all heavy metal/techno music, red bull/monster drinking, neo-roid-heads with numerous complexes. Oh Dune.
  9. Congratulations. Teach it well and encourage it to read and speak properly.
  10. Okay, so I'm sure I've already caused a lot of groaning with this but it's finally done and I'll shut up about it now. I changed my mind about the base I was going to use and instead crafted together this thing you see here. I placed the tiles myself and everything seen here was hand crafted. My two week long project has finally come to a conclusion and I can relax and get back to my regularly schedule routine. It'll be nice not spending 8 hours in my garage wearing terribly uncomfortable face masks and safety goggles.

  12. Nothing better than dessert after cooking for a gal...
  13. So it's pretty much finished. Set it up with some temporary arms and a leg. I'm working on a base made from a really giant tree stump, though that's taking quite some time. I'll likely fix it up with a temporary base tomorrow so I can start using it and work on my footwork using the leg. Also pictured is a half-body dummy I found on craigslist, I got the price down to $50 which is a super-sweet deal. It's been interesting getting to use a dummy, much different than using a partner or training with a shadow, and very different from a bag. It's been a lot of fun though. Also got this in the mail yesterday. I think eventually I'll order real dummy arms and a leg, but that'll have to wait until after camp when I can send this to wherever I'm stationed during school.
  14. Be real careful about that stuff, the additives in mainstream tobacco already lead to a likelihood of depression and suicidal thoughts when they are withdrawn, chantix has a nasty way of increasing the chances. It's been a while since I've read the studies, but some of those chemical trails it leaves behind can cause buildup on soft tissue and fat (like a number of other drugs), so if you go on a health regimen with any kind of burning off involved I'd recommend always ending your exercise with a nice walk or run through a park. It took me a while to figure out I was storing away a lot of junk in my fat deposits and everytime I got some loss, I'd release those toxins into my system and it'd start a re-introduction causing me to have less than favorable mood swings. Cigarettes really seemed to be the worst, really, everything else just kind of made me spastic like I had a sugar rush then a quick comedown. The cigarettes made it feel like things were missing and you couldn't find them. I know cold turkey isn't easy or workable for everyone, but just be real careful about chantix. A doctor I know has suggested to a lot of his patients that they chew a high sugar gum each time they get a craving. I just wish I weren't being delayed until likely the summer. I'm ready to get my haircut and translate some Afghanis.
  15. Very true, lucky for me it's not an issue since that part has actually just started. I figure leaving for the military soon, I need to get it all out of my system... so to speak.
  16. Update on my wooden dummy. I need to finish sanding the edges on the top arms so they're round and make the leg and base. I'll resand the body once more then it'll be finished. Considering I don't have a lathe, the arms aren't a bad bit of work. Not the greatest of width (a bit too thin), but they work just fine.

  18. Chocolate milk. I have since quit quitting. Actually I'd say out of all the things I've quit I'd say cigarettes were the most difficult, and I've done a lot. Been almost two years since I quit smoking cigarettes, 9 months since I stopped drinking, 6 (7? I forget) months since giving up cannabis, almost 3 years since some other illegal substances. Hasn't really changed much about me, just leaves me with less "to do". I occupy the time canoeing and exercising, building things, exploring, and sexual exploits. The latter was a tip I picked up from a friend who went to rehab, it's true what they say, sex is the absolute way to changing ones focus away from recreational substance use. So keep that in mind folks...
  19. Found a copy of this on BluRay, so I upgraded from my DVD and gave it to a friend. The bluray was well worth the $50, so pretty... Picked this up at Target for $10, crazy awesome sale.
  20. I'm pretty sure this takes place before Next Generation starts... Military rules start somewhere, bro. It used to not be a problem to commit mutiny and all, things change. Sure there were some problems with the construction, but as has been stated, some people knew what was going on where the majority of people did not. Seems to me a rational man would promote a newbie who knows what's on the up and up to keep the newly promoted captain level. Then his planet got destroyed and he lost his mom, so Kirk decided to be ballsy, kind of like calling the big dude cupcake. I'm fairly certain he was ready to fight for it but no one called his bluff for the captains chair. People unqualified to hold power have often claimed it for themselves many times in the past. No need to get all Professor of Science Fiction about it. Besides, they went back in time and killed Kirk's dad, I think a lot of things changed by introducing that into the plot. You don't have to like it, but that doesn't mean the movie wasn't entertaining.
  21. Eh, I figured they were just trying to show Kirk as a "**** you, I've got balls" kind of person. Because Kirk does have balls, big space-brass ones.
