Ken - you'll appreciate this one...

I'm in the chow hall today and I start talking with this young PFC Marine. Anyway, he was surprised I was in the military for 9 years and then got out (9 years is almost 1/2 way to retirement although no one retires at 20 years... anyway) So get to talking about career choices and this and that and the conversation goes like this...

PFC: So what do you think you would be doing now if you weren't a Field Security Specialist?
Steve: Oh, no question "Full-Time dreamer"
PFC: If I wasn't a Marine I would work in a shoe store...

I almost spit out my milk man... couldn't believe he caught that one... :lol:

Looks like not only did Buck forget to take his meds... but he must have wandered out of the "old folks" home again and found an Internet Cafe.....

Is it just me or is the blue pie chart giving the red pie chart oral?

Damn. And after all these years it finally makes sense to me.

Hey, I'm a visual learner.

You're clearly referencing me in this manifesto ya little ball-less wonder. At least have the guts to say it. I'm the only one who even starts threads to begin with so it has to be me. And neither method is effective cuz it has been tried for quite awhile now.

Nobody wants to post on a board with a little self-absorbed elitist know-it-all that has done nothing to improve the boards in years.
Instead of insults and personal attacks (completely unfounded, by the way), why don't you enlighten me about what I'm doing so wrong? All I've been told by negative, bitter people like you is "you just don't get it." What don't I get?

When I'm not even around every day with my so-called "self-absorbed elitist know-it-all" antics, how in the hell can you blame me? Look in the damn mirror. No one wants to post on a site full of negativity ... and you want examples? How about your threads like "If SC were a sports site..." and "Which forum will die first?" Is that the kind of f**king spirit a site needs to prosper? Of course not. I've been open to hearing suggestions for improvements and examples of my missteps. But the only thing you've been able to supply is insults.

I've said all along two things: 1) I have made plenty of mistakes, like any human, and I am trying my best; 2) this is a community about more than me, it's about you, the members. At the end of the day, I just want to be a member like the rest of you and participate in lively sports discussion ... and step in and provide leadership and direction when needed. I can't snap my fingers and make former regulars post. Their reasons for going elsewhere are their reasons and to place ALL of that burden on me is unreasonable. I am doing my best. I am sorry I can't be here 24/7, I'm sorry I have an outside life with higher priorities now than when I started the site. But I don't think it's fair for bitter people like you to attack me.

I am proud of this site and will continue to march on. I am thankful for the members we do have and always believe in a brighter future.

Sorry Steve, I'm completely blanking at the moment. Then again, it is almost 2 AM...

Change of plans. Thanksgiving will be Costco rotisserie chicken tacos.

Did anyone venture out for Black Friday? So stupid, people camping out in the frigid cold all night. I'll do most of my shopping online. But with Thanksgiving behind us, the holiday season is upon us. This year has flown by!

Well, we know they weren't in here posting so maybe that's where everyone went.

I am coming down with a cold. Err! Meds and green tea help, but with this crappy weather, I need some cheerin' up. Guess I've came to the wrong place, huh? (Zing!)
