    ANY kind of quote, even serious ones.
 
  Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice.
-- John Adams

I've always heard the Santayana as:

"Those who refuse to remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Either way, it's a powerful quote.  When you tour the museum at the Dachau concentration camp just outside Munich, Germany, this quote is on a large display as you leave the museum.  I have remembered it, and the lessons learned, ever since...

I'm with Flynn- anybody can kill the enemy with a gun; it takes a skilled agressor to take 'em out with a Simpson (I'm thinking he takes the threaded alligator clips off the test leads so he has the nice, sharp pointed ends available for penetration...)

Of course, I'm ex-Air Force PMEL, so what in hell do I know about killing the enemy??  I just worked on the meter that worked on the test set that worked on the plane that delivered "shock and awe."

I myself have killed many of VC in the jungles of Nam with just a RG-58 and a BNC to Type N adapter. I would always leave a "K" Pro or a NAVAIR behind as my calling card. Yeah, that used to scare the crap out of those little people. Let me tell ya, there is nothing more terrifiing for a VC than to come across 33K4-4-269-1 laying on top of their strangled buddy. Those were tough times for calibrators. Hell, we had a lean too for a cold room and had to actually stand up to do our job because we had no lab chairs. I remember one night me and my fellow calibrators had to do a on-site near DaNang. We HALO jumped with test equipment strapped to our backs from 40 thousand feet into the jungle. We had heavy resistance, but we calibrated like no one had ever seen before or since. Then all hell broke loose. I got shocked with 12 VDC and had to be MediVac'd out.

Very nice....
Reminds me when I was doing a covert recon mission in Tijuana. The mission: To infiltrate the local clubs and engage the local, young, hot chicks...hummm....I mean enemies, with automactic tequila shots and bazooka bombs while avioding the FUC's (Fat, ugly chicks). One of my Marines fell casualties to a FUC...A really big FUC....And now I'm stuck with the sad task of telling his son. That hurts....
Meanwhile, at LZ Pedro's, I encountered a VHC (very hot chick) ambush...Oh man it was intense. Alcoholic gun fire, coupled with the fact that her "uniform" revealed the fact that this was going to be a tuff battle. I was catured...Damn...And couldn't resist her vicious interragation...and when it was all said and done, I woke up on the beach, naked except for my boxers, one sandal on one foot and a footie with a fuzzy purple ball on the other, a chicken bone across my chest, along with a note saying,"I'm a chesse omlete" in spanish...No lie....got the pictures to prove it.... :-(

alright. we're talking about the two wonderboys of metrology ( the wood worker and the God of Metrology.) When you pick any one of those two people for a Senior Tech position you just told me that you are a idiot or you just like someones nose shoved up your butt. :-D

"God of Metrology" sounds so ominous. Say it out loud. You can hear the capital letters when you do. :-D

Statistically speaking of course. :lol:

Well, I do believe you're right, Mr. Coup! :-D

Least we remember the Chosin Resoivor during the KoreanWar....hmmm, very embarrassing for the Army, and to say the least, America...

And what about the present war? Remember when the Army had their BDUs stolen in Iraq by insurgents after they had them shipped to the cleaners? First of all, I only could have wished I had the luxury of shipping my cammies off to get washed and cleaned whenI was there (HELLO, WE"RE IN FRICK'EN HERE, PEOPLE!!!!!!!!) The army tried to keep it a secret until we where killing Habib the Insurgent and all of his pals, wearing army BDU's with like, First Sgt. chevons....WTF?

But hey, I love yall anyway! :wink:

 Yes, but the reason the marines are first in and last out is because of their attention span.  We have to be careful not to overextend them and just use them on certain occasions. lol

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair or f$%king beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.
