Topics I've Started
27 November 2010 - 03:21 PMTREE FITTY, Matt, here for probably the last time.
I ship off to Marine Corps Boot Camp in 15 days now. I will be enlisted under the Military Occupational Specialty of 2600, which is Signals Intelligence/Cryptologic Linguist. I will attend Boot Camp, School of Infantry- Marine Combat Training Battalion, attend a basic Intel school and then head to Monterey Bay, California for 64 weeks to train at Defense Linguistic Institute, learning a CAT IV Language which includes Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and now some Afghanistan dialects. My ultimate goal is Recon School, entering the Radio Recon training. My goal, however given the odds of achieving this goal I have plenty of back up plans. I intend on serving for 20+ years, but we will see how these first five play out.
Thank you all for everything, I spent the last few months offline here, training, studying knowledge for the USMC, picking my MOS and earning a 10,000 dollar sign on bonus as well. Life is great, and it's only getting better. Paintball was a fun part of my life, but the money isn't there for me right now to play. Maybe during my training in Cali I can get onto the field on weekends. I quit my job a week or two ago, I was there for 3 years and ranked unofficially the best employee by the man who owns it. I only ever had one raise, I worked for 8 bucks an hour but it got me by, so I had no complaints. I've kept clean there, with my friends, no drinking or drugs or anything. I'm earning a top secret security clearance as well, so when they look into my life they'll see nothing but a clean slate.
I don't think I'll return to the forum, I kind of forgot about it for the longest time. Hopefully during my enlistment it reappears in my memory and I come on to tell you how awesome the USMC is/isn't, 'cause I don't know right now. I expect plenty of great days and trashy days.
I've earned top scores in both my physical fitness test and my combat fitness test, and I'm heading to Boot Camp as a Recruit, but will graduate as a Private First Class instead of a Private. Hopefully I can earn that Lance Corporal. Doubt it, but it would be nice.
Not trying to flash anything, just thought I would update all you guys as I start a new, awesome chapter in my life. Thanks for everything, including the life lessons, friendship, information, whatever it was. No news is good news, but how cocky I've become with myself, I want to say that you'll hear my name in the upcoming years. I've got nothing but drive and motivation, and I'm not blind about it. Call it hubris, I'll call it confidence.
Good-bye everyone! Please take care of yourselves.
27 August 2010 - 06:18 PMI bring it up for one reason.
Yes. Pea coats. Well. Cold weather attire. I don't mean to sound a little on the fairy side, but hey, I'm a guy that likes to look good. Winter lets me look good. put on a nice shirt or fleece, nice thermal, throw on a jacket, pea coat, overcoat, trench coat, get the hats out, beanies, caps, hell, throw on a fedora. I don't look too good in 'em but if it were the 50's I'd be rocking one all the time. I love mah pea coats. I love mah leather gloves. I tried a scarf. Too much for me, I admit that. A guy likes looking good though I mean come on I can't be the only one.
My pea coat I have though is kind of old... it has a hood too that I don't really care for. I'm looking for a new one. A good one. Navy/Military style, black, sexy stuff. I want to try a long one on but I can never find any. I own short ones.
Anyone dressin' good nowadays? taking care of themselves? Yeah, who cares what others think I get that, but it can't help to look good. And if you love pea coats like I do, help me find a reasonably priced long navy black pea coat. Must. Have.
27 August 2010 - 01:50 PMDiscuss anything from boxing to grappling, UFC to Strikeforce, country to country, it doesn't matter.
My eyes are set on UFC 118 tomorrow featuring the rematch between BJ Penn and Frankie Edgar for the lightweight title. Also, boxing meets the UFC now. James Lights Out Toney takes on Randy the Natural Couture.
What do I think? I think BJ is going to come in hard and take it home. The first fight was fair, Frankie took it, however he did not beat BJ down. BJ is going to come back with a better game plan for Frankie's skill set and neutralize Frankie where he can. Frankie does have a chance though, his boxing has hit BJ in the last fight, and the ground game can go either way. I just believe Penn is more likely to take this one.
Toney and Couture... This is hard to call. Obviously if Toney is stuck against the fence or finds himself on the ground, he's done, period. Couture will destroy him in any area that's not boxing. However Couture can be knocked out, and people have done it in the past. If anyone can do it again, it's Toney. The man has more knockouts than Randy has fights. Period. And what if Toney takes Couture down to prove a point? How is Randy on his back nowadays, and would he expect a move like that? This is a fight that i find it impossible to give an edge to. Couture picked up Brock Lesnar and out boxed him, though getting TKO'd. But Lesnar is not Toney. how many punches can Randy take at this age? And can he move fast enough for the double leg, or take it to the fences and keep Toney there? Weigh ins just happened, Couture is at 220lbs and Toney I think is at 237? Randy kept Lesnar against the cage for a bit, I feel if Randy takes it to the fence he can keep Toney there at will and out-pummel him. Can Toney defend the take down? Every highlight clip I see of his training he is working his boxing... I don't know guys.
Verdict? I think I can do numbers... 40% chance for Toney, 60% for Randy. I like Randy Couture for the win here.
Other fights include Nate Diaz at Marcus Davis. I just pray to the Lord that Diaz will be crushed. That kid makes me mad. His attitude. His voice. Hubris. It's annoying, and he needs to be put in place. I like Davis for this not because I hate Diaz, but the boxing is on Marcus' side. As long as he stays off his back and can avoid the triangle, he's set.
Also, Gray Maynard takes on Kenny Florian. I want Maynard to win. He's a great, well rounded fighter. But so is Kenny. I haven't followed Kenny as I followed Maynard, so I can't really call this one fairly. I just think Kenny doesn't have the attitude or drive right now according to the weigh ins. He didn't seem in the game, but we'll see. I know his Muay Thai and the cuts he landed on Clay Guida. Maynard is a dog though, so it'll definitely be a good match.

Too bad it's Venezuela. And the Middle East. Egypt. I wonder. Would it be cheaper for those in Asmara to drive a couple hundred miles or so with a big truck and fill up multiple containers of gas at $0.32 a gallon than to stay in their own country and buy at $10/gal. and not drive as much?
02 August 2010 - 09:06 PMSo I saw an episode of CSI where they do a thought experiment- one person masterminds a whole crime/set of crimes with evidence and clues throughout and participants in the thought experiment must try to solve the case given certain clues and information. It seemed really fun... So yes. I decided to try it out with all 'yins. It might be hard at first and it might be problematic 'cause I'm just starting out, but I figure I'd try out of sheer boredom these late nights. Solve the crime, everything one person finds/posts first earns them a credit point. Get the most, and you're the MVP of CSI's. Here are the rules and the format.
1. I am the creator of this criminal investigation. I handle all responses to posed hypotheses and questions. You can deliberate amongst yourselves, but DO NOT speak for me. Example, one person comments stating "maybe he drove off the cliff because he passed out", someone else CANNOT SAY "no, that's impossible that's too dumb that's not how the story goes, TREE FITTY wouldn't do that" etc. You get the idea. You can say it's a dumb idea, but don't say it's impossible.
2. Everyone can play.
3. NO flaming hypotheses or answers, RESPECT everyone else playing.
4. You can PM outside of this and deliberate.
5. Once a case is solved, I WILL CREATE A NEW ONE, and it may take time. If I want to and someone else wants to, I will pass that opportunity to them to mastermind their own plot to keep up with originality. SHOULD IT BE PASSED ON, stories must be kept at a relatively respectable rating, like, NOT RATED X STUFF. NO intense sex scandals with vivid and disgusting detail, you know, the like. Don't try it.
6. YOU CANNOT PM ME FOR ANSWERS. All answers to questions must be posted in the forum. All questions must be posted in the forum.
7. I reserve the right to add, change, or remove rules, and I will post an update response to ensure that everyone knows of it. Play will resume after, and any knowledge beforehand will remain in play.
8. Every point is awarded by me. Every piece of information, no matter how big, is worth one point. At the end of the session, I will count the points to see the winner. I will take into consideration the weight of each point and what it stands for.
I will first post the scenario and apparent clues around each case. EVERYTHING MAY NOT BE AS IT SEEMS. I'll repeat. EVERYTHING MAY NOT BE AS IT SEEMS.
There will be two investigative parts to each case to discover new information. If a case deems it, I may add another place of investigation! THIS IS HOW IT WILL HAPPEN. WE WILL REMAIN AT THE SCENE OF THE CRIME UNTIL EVERYONE PLAYING DECIDES ITS TIME TO PICK A SUSPECT TO INTERROGATE! We will move together, from SCENE to INTERROGATION, back and forth. IF there is a disagreement, I will take whoever wants to return to the SCENE there in a PM session. What they discover, I will post, and they will receive a credit towards their score:
THE SCENE- The SCENE of the crime is where the action took place. I will describe the scene and apparent clues and first looks, victims, obvious characteristics. I WILL NOT STATE EVERY DETAIL, you must investigate some!
You have the option to utilize a CSI team, but you MUST direct them. For example, if someone is dead and a gun is beside them, you can direct the team to do a GSR test to see if that person fired a gun. DO NOT JUST SAY use CSI team. You can use the team to- SEARCH FURNITURE/GARDEN/CARPET/CABINETS/etc (The description of the scene will dictate what you will need to search.) You can perform TESTs such as GSR/DNA tests at the SCENE to verify if there's gun powder, blood (human or animal, male or female, etc.) I will not announce if all the evidence is found or not. If the game hits a stale spot, I will state for the sake of the pace that evidence is collected.
THE INTERROGATION- Here's the really thoughtful part. You must interrogate suspects. It's advisable to ask about whereabouts, possessions, relationships, etc. Using evidence you gathered in context against the suspect will be the key to discovering plot elements and getting the answers you need to unravel the case. I will act as the person being interrogated. I will implant two elements in my response to questions. One element includes EMOTION. Before typing the response, I will type the inflection of their voice and posture. EX. (crying, hunched over, breatheless) - I swear it wasn't me, I loved her! These are CLUES! You can tell if someone is sincere or not, learn the quirks! The second element is the typed response. The response might be a lie, it might be the truth, a LIE DETECTOR TEST CANNOT BE USED UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE. Use the emotion, posture, and response to tell if they're lying. Use evidence, too!
Evidence found at the SCENE can be brought to the attention of the suspect at this time, and warrants may be issued if enough probable cause is established. A suspect may sing that he didn't do it, but if you find his prints on a gun located at the scene, he's gonna change his key. Get me? Warrants issued can include DNA evidence, search of their household, clothing, and viewing of body (scars, bruises.) Household searches will not take time unless I change the SCENE. If someone takes a car, and you issue a search warrant at their house in their garage and its there, it'll be instantaneous in the game.
Finally, any good criminalist's goal is to ascertain how the crime in committed with all evidence included. In this case, I task you with finding out why as well. Motive is important, and saying he shot her isn't enough. Why did he shoot her, and what benefits were there?
This is a GAME! Meant to be fun, and it's probably far from perfect. This is my first time doing this. Since this is the case, before I post the case, please post up stating if you're willing to play. You do not need to ride the whole game out, you may come in and give your input then never come back. But hope, for this first time, if you say you're gonna play you'll play it through with me.
Let's try this on. I'm really hyped to do it. Once I get at least three people saying they'll do it, I'll post the scene and preliminary findings.
