  1. CAUTION: VIDEO HAS NOT BEEN EDITED FOR LANGUAGE!

    I fell out of my chair laughing at this video: http://www.qubetv.tv/videos/detail/3483 . A US Marine at a roadway checkpoint, bored to tears, talking to a Baghdad-bound Iraqi taxi driver.
    You have to understand Marine humor in combat-a little on the sick side, but very funny. This lad's sarcasm and cynicism is profound and hilarious. This is why the Commandant of the Marine Corps tried to have the Marines pulled from Iraq and sent to Afghanistan, because the lance corporals were complaining that they had no one to shoot at. Of course, Secretary Gates turned him down, so now the Marines are passing the word via cab drivers for the insurgents to come out and play.

  3. Scotland? I have St. Andrews Cross wall mounted hope you don't mind.

    My father's step-father was from Dundee. I took a lot of good windings as a lad growing up. But I got a lot of good out of it as well. I can still hear him calling me laddie. Granny baked shortbread on occasion, I can still hear the bagpipes playing too.

    Right, thanks for the memories.
