Posts I've Made
23 June 2009 - 03:23 PMEasy to buy from, everything was smooth and well communicated.
24 April 2009 - 02:10 PMHonestly, I got tired of buying gloves and having them stain my hands, tear, not fit right on my middle/ring finger (The webbing between those fingers on both my hands is strange) ect. Eventually I just decided to get some reusable bandages and wrap my hands like a boxer. It's comfortable and easy to wash. Works for me I guess.
07 April 2009 - 03:44 PMThe only thing no-one else has mentioned is pacing. When going out to train for this thing I would try to (and I'm biased to it as it's what my track coach drilled into my head) get in the habit of running a "negative split". Now it doesn't really apply to a 5 mile run for charity, but in competitive distance running either the miles, or for shorter races, the meter distances are timed. To run a negative split in a three mile run would be to run the first mile in say 6:54 the next in 6:40 and the last in 6:35. The idea is to start off at a slow and comfortable pace, then slowly increment speed up at a comfortable level, building momentum.
That said, some people find it more comfortable to run a steady pace for the duration. Experiment and keep with what you like is all that I can say about that.
17 March 2009 - 04:06 PMI saw these at Dday 08 when the guy was first coming out with them. Safety issues came to mind, but it is pretty economical, the only trouble being the up front cost and the cost of use, paint and CO2 powerlets...maybe not so economical. My thoughts are that if this line of products tanks, he should redesign them into a mine style, with the trigger on top and the barrels pointed upwards.

QuoteActually, the aid was channeled through Pakistan and the ISI to various Afghan Islamist warlords, such as Galbuddin Hekmatyar and his force of mujahidin called Hezb-i-Islami. Al-Qaeda was, and always has been, a separate entity from those mujahidin, though they share similar ideological viewpoints. Additionally, Bin Laden has an immense amount of oil wealth from his Saudi family, so he didn't need American dollars to form Al-Qaeda with Ayman Al-Zawahiri. No doubt American dollars found their way to Al-Qaeda, but we did not make Bin Laden. he made himself.
You know your stuff. I do suppose "made" is a stretch, however that's aside the point. What I was attempting to emphasize was how Teufel Hunden stated that Clition knew of Bin Laden but did not act. It was stated as if this was a trait exclusive to that presidency. Al Queda, along with other mujahidin organizations and leaders have been known about for a long while, some of which we have even aided from time to time when it served our purposes. It was only in the post 9/11 world that these guerrilla organizations have received the serious scrutiny they arguably always needed.
That said, It's not surprising though that 9/11 seemed to come out of left field so to speak. The White House receives untold numbers of death threats, bomb threats, and other such bull-hock everyday. Most of them are BS from crazies and lonely folks who are desperate for attention, and never come to fruition. Trouble is that our intelligence agencies resources are stretched thin, and not every lead can be pursued, only the one's deemed at all serious would be investigated. Unfortunately, we all know the consequences of errors on our intelligence services part.
