Good Morning Masume!!
Or something like that.
Hiya folks. So far its been a pretty good week. I went to the Camp America interview on Monday which was way up in Farringdon which is a district in London, but kinda awkward to get to. I got there ok then and met the person in the Costa Coffee shop and we talked for a good 90 minutes or so. It went pretty well and now I gotta focus on the next stage, which is another form to fill in, but it shouldn’t be too hard, as long as I find an hour or two to devote to it. ^^;;
Yesterday was pretty good too. I had the day off so I lounged around the house most of the day. in the afternoon I went with mum to do grocery shopping and in the evening I attended my first Shaolin Kung Fu class. It was really hard! I haven’t sweated so much in ages. I think I might have strained my wrist a little too. But it was tonnes of fun and I hope I get the chance to go again soon. It was a pain in the ass finding somewhere to park the car and afterwards trying to get home…I got lost several times. ^^; stupid one way systems. I knew where I was, I just didn’t know how to get from there to home…so yah…
I have also got round to uploading my crappy scribble comics of my adventures in the Lake District. I uploaded them into my scraps section of Deviant Art, and can be found HERE
You wanna look at the pictures entitled “LD Comics”. If ya cant access DA for whatever reason…tuff.
Today I am going out cuz I have the day off again. I am going to the Horny Man’s Museum…. LOL just kidding, just kidding. ^^ I'm actually going to the Horniman Museum which has all kinds of different stuff, and an aquarium, which should be fun since I haven’t been to an aquarium since last year when I went to Gatlinburg in Tennessee. ^^
here's something interesting to do: check out these Google sites:
ELmer Fudd's Google

Oogle-gay in-way Igs-pay Atin-lay
its fun to muck around with google...
And yeah, that’s it from me today. No Turn A Gundam or funny video or anything. Sorry for being boring. ^^
oh ok, I’ll leave you with some Aviation and Military Maxims. Enjoy. ^^
The three most common expressions (or famous last words) in aviation are: "Why is it doing that?" "Where are we?" and "Oh Shit!"
"Weather forecasts are horoscopes with numbers."
"The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire."
"There are more planes in the ocean than submarines in the sky." --Old carrier sailor
"When one engine fails on a twin-engine airplane you always have enough power left to get you to the scene of the crash."
"Without ammunition, the USAF would be just another expensive flying club."
"What is the similarity between air traffic controllers and pilots? If a pilot screws up, the pilot dies; If ATC screws up, .... The pilot dies."
"Mankind has a perfect record in aviation; we never left one up there!"
Basic Flying Rules:
"Try to stay in the middle of the air. Do not go near the edges of it. The edges of the air can be recognized by the appearance of ground, buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space. It is much more difficult to fly there."
"You know that your landing gear is up and locked when it takes full power to taxi to the terminal."
As the test pilot climbs out of the experimental aircraft, having torn off the wings and tail in the crash landing, a rescuer asks the
bloodied pilot "What happened?".
"I don't know,' the pilot's replies, "I just got here myself!"
--Attributed to Ray Crandell (Lockheed test pilot)
"It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed." --Air Force Manual
"A slipping gear could let your M203 grenade launcher fire when you least expect it. That would make you quite unpopular in what's left of your unit." --"Aim towards the Enemy."
Instruction printed on US Rocket Launcher:
"When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend."
--U.S. Marine Corps
"Cluster bombing from B-52s is very, very accurate.
The bombs are guaranteed to always hit the ground."
--USAF Ammo Troop
"If the enemy is in range, so are you."
"Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons."
"Try to look unimportant; they may be low on ammo."
"You, you, and you ... Panic. The rest of you, come with me” --U.S. Marine Corps Gunnery Sgt.
"Five second fuses only last
"Don't ever be the first, don't ever be the last, and don't ever volunteer to do anything."
--U.S. Navy Swabbie
"If your attack is going too well, you're walking into an ambush."
"No combat-ready unit has ever passed inspection."
"Any ship can be a minesweeper. Once." --unattributed
"Never tell the Platoon Sergeant you have nothing to do."
--Unknown Marine Recruit
"Don't draw fire; it irritates the people around you." --unattributed
"If you see a bomb technician running, follow him."
till next we meet. ^^
