Thanks for the explanation, Mike.  I didn't think you had intentionally written the father to solve problems in an "appropriately professional, middle-class way by mesmerizing them with his gold watch" or that you had targeted the piece more "to would-be heroic dads than their kid".

Slothus, are you ******* kidding me?  Glass houses, ass wipe.

you can't honestly tell me it's only the young whipper snappers who are bitching at the airport when they have to take their shoes off. 

I know you directed that at Morgbug but this is an open forum. I, for one, never complain at the airports' recent security rules(takingoff shoes,jackets ect). I know why we do it so I don't ever complain for the slowdown. Am I dissapointed that I can't go all the way to the terminal anymore to greet my family coming off a plane? Sure-it's sad our previous freedoms are removed from us, but I get why we do it so no complaints.

It's probably for the best you cannot meet your family at the gate.  The way you brag about slapping your sister around the TSA would lock you up if you pulled that crap in a terminal.

I travel a lot, and have the trip through airport security down to a science.  Travel determines which shoes I wear, my watch and whether I'll be wearing a belt or not.  Not everyone knows to remove their laptops and camcorders, and that's alright too.  There's a learning curve to getting the process down.  People still don't understand they cannot take liquids through the security screening area, which is hard to understand based on the news coverage and the many, many signs prior to the cue.  Waiting for them to be talked down from their morning soda is irritating, especially given the TSA's lack of tack in dealing with the public.

Mostly though it's not the inconvenience of taking off ones shoes, it's the absurdity of what they are checking vs. what they are not and can not.  Combine that with the general TSA employee mentality (one step above entry level retail employees, and it's a low step) and you get a pretty stressful environment for people unfamiliar with it.

I'm grateful for the express line for business and medallion level fliers.

Thanks, Travis.  I saw that review with the other one on Amazon.

My first post can be read as sarcastic, but I'm sincerely interested in hearing from Mike what the book is about.  That write up is still mostly about what happens in the book with a little commentary from the reviewer about what they think it's about.  Mike may have had a totally different intent, and I'm interested.

Can he get his hair to grow back?  I didn't think so. 

And he looks a lot more beat up than the pirates, even though one has a hook and the other an eye patch. 

It also looks like he might need to change the kids diaper after what they went through.  Hopefully he's okay with that.

What's the book about?

Maybe that's EXACTLY what it's about! Perhaps by the end of the story 'because he can do anything, daddy' he'll have a full head of hair, the kids will have fresh pants on and he'll be in a clean suit with some pirates in the hospital :P ::)

GJ on getting your book made Mike

DS

You told me what might "happen" in the book.  I asked what it was about.

I don't think the world is any more or less violent than when I was a kid.  The only difference is that now the coverage is almost instant and in HD which is better resolution than real life.

When my father was a child, violence was always in black and white on television.  If it was on at all.

I don't like Mondays.

Tell me why

I wanna shoot the whole day down.

And he can see no reasons
'Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need to die?


Same guy, different song of indifference:

I don't care if you sink or swim
Lock me out or let me in
Where I'm going or where I've been
I don't mind at all

I don't mind if the government falls
Implements more futile laws
I don't care if the nation stalls
And I don't care at all

Does that make me old too, Brent?  Or just old at heart?

I agree with Brent on so much of this.  When you guys check out The Day After have Netflix send you Red Dawn.  The Day After was a TV mini series, so block out 6-8 hours to take that **** in.

My dog passed away this Sunday.  :-[ He was 15, and my family has had him for a little over 10 years.

Sorry to hear that, Reid.  I went through that in March last year, and there are really no words to convey how much it still sucks.

Hang in there.

I know this could get out of hand, but I'd really like the McQuarrie R2/3PO and the McQuarrie Luke if it's possible.  If not, I totally understand.  There's no way I can make it to C4.

Picked up a set of the Order 66 packs this morning, and then got word that one of my fellow ASWCCers has both of the new vehicles for me, so I'll have those tonight, and will be completely current -

BRING ON WAVE 2!

'78

Was that the Anti-Submarine Warfare Command and Control group or the Arkansas Soil and Water Conservation Commission?

What about on the pages of her friends?

My memory is foggy... isn't that the same denied visage from the original Bertha incident?  The one on the right?  And just in case I didn't follow along, did Lady Jaye just here confirm that's her own photo?

That's what I think just happened...

No, Bill, you're remembering this one:



Yes, she did confirm that this more recent photo was her (on the right):



Which allows us to do a side by side comparison...



What coincidences can we observe?

1. The hair parted down the middle is the first point of coincidence I notice.
2. With computer forensic enhancement the left subject has visible highlights in her hair similar to, but less pronounced than the subject on the right.
3. The chins are identical, as are the cheeks.
4. Both images indicate some level of eye brow plucking.
5. The subject on the right is more pale, consistent with time spent in Albany, New York.
6. The length and width of nose are approximately the same.
7. Both subjects wear their shirts unbuttoned in a similar manner.
8. The photo on the right is grainy, because it was taken in low light using a film camera and developed to PhotoCD.

More?
