Slothus, what is your home station?

BTW, I hate to correct you, but the beret  is navy if it really matters.

One thing that irked me about ID4 (after I went into the AF) was the gate guards at the desert base.  I'm guessing that was Area 51.

Since when the hell did gate guards start toting MP5's?  An MP5 is a CQB weapon, not for shooting over open areas.  The weapon of choice would be an M16 or an M4, depending on the armory of the unit.

Also, the SP's at the gate would have head gear and would not be wearing black.  Nothing says shoot me like wearing black in a brown desert. 

Another thing, no SP in his right mind is going to allow a fleet of cars and trucks into a controlled are (Area 51) without authorization, especially into a sensitive area, no matter what the cargo may be.

Just my .02 being a former SP. 

Inaccuracy is one thing that drives me nuts about military movies.  I try to avoid thinking about it now because "it's only a movie."

Well JMac, doens't look like you are going to get your battle of undefeated teams the last week.  Still, do Texas a favor and stomp USC.

A couple other live action show to includes…

Airwolf (the helicopter)

Streethawk (suped up motorcycle show & Knight Rider rip off)

On Sat mornings their was Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future

Funny that you mentioned Streethawk.  I was just running a search of it on Google when I flipped over here.  For some reason, the show AUTOMAN jumps into my mind as well.

From the sounds of this, it seems a bit like the Gulf War era movie "Three Kings."

I visit a site with a lot of SOF guys and they have commented a lot about the writer of the book this is based on and they tend to believe that a lot of the book was ****.  They seem to feel this guy had some kind of vendetta against the military when he wrote the book.

I can't comment personally about the book itself because I haven't read it...yet.  And I can't comment about accuracy because I wasn't in the military in '91 when the movie seems to be based around.  I know this is a bit off the topic of seeing the movie, but I may try to catch it if I can get the time.

Excuses.  I get so tired of people who have an excuse for everything they do or don't do.  What's even worse are other people I work with who don't come prepared and they have excuses out their butts about why they couldn't get something finished, or taken care of or prepared, or on and on and on. 

I tell my kids "Excuses are monuments of nothingness."  I have that on a sign in my classroom and when I get some BS excuse, I point to the sign.  They usually don't give me any.

I understand that things happen from time to time, just don't keep giving me one, explain that you messed up, apologize, and fix the situation.  That's what I do.

I also get irritated with people's lack of common sense.  Ie. the evening news story:  A study released by so and so university today indicated that pregnant women have a tendancy to gain weight during pregnancy.

Duh!!!!!  Is the baby not supposed to weigh anything????

I've had an appendectomy.

I also have a "minor" tear of my right rotator cuff.  It only hurts if I don't warm up before throwing the ball or hitting the weights.  Otherwise, I'm okay.
