Some of those questions were just too, too good. You got me with this one; I put up my answers!

Duly posted, although I do not paint my toenails. I have curly toes, and would rather not draw attention to them.

So - will you be posting your answers, Acidman?

Hi A-man. I've returned to my home station at Fort Meade, MD, from CENTCOM Tampa. I missed you man. Answers to the top 25.

1. My personal hero is my dad. As weak-cliche as that sounds, he taught me the value of hard work. I'm a Major in the Army and on my way to becoming a General Officer. Oh by the way, I've earned my promotions by serving/supporting my soldiers, not "lording over them." My pops taught me everything I know.

2. My favorite book of all time is Duncton Wood, by William Horwood, because it highlights the value of a realist (pragmatic, Morgenthau) approach to dealing with others, as opposed to an idealistic (Wilsonian - doomed to failure approach.)

3. For me, diversity relates to beer. Diversity is how many different beers I can drink at one sitting.

4. The wildest thing I've ever done is let a trucker use my hotel room to take a shower. I was watching TV on my bed when he knocked. When he asked to shower, my initial thought was to tell him to get fucked, but hey, we've all been there. After he assured me he meant to shower alone, I let him in. I realized shortly thereafter that this was the stupidest thing I had ever done in my life, so I went to my car and got (after loading) my .357. Needless to say, there were no problems.

5. Fuck no.

6. Fuck yeah.

7. 107 MPH on the German autobahn in my Toyota Celica. The governor shut the car off until I slowed done to 92.

8. Neither, I was "flying".

9. What's your problem with spiders and snakes. They're both cute and nutritious.

10. My toe skin, # 2 is my eye crud.

11. Fuck yeah. My pants, the bed, an airplane seat. Incontinence at age 36 is a bitch.

12. No, not really.

13. Hmmmm, encouraged. Who actually says outlawed? I'll tell you another thing; sodomy between a man and a women is fine as well. Sodomy between two men is just sick.

14. Fuck no.

15. Fuck yeah.

16. The women who put the cunt in country.

17. Cancer, plus my lungs are pretty fucked up.

18. Fuck no. Don't do shell fish.

19. Nope, but my bald cat is afraid of small places.

20. Yeah. Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose.

21. Dubya, 41 (got me home from ODS I safe and sound), Reagan (won the cold war without firing a shot), Teddy Roosevelt (TR was the Man), Washington (declined kinghood for a presidency).

22. BJ Clinton, Jimmy Carter, LBJ (fucked up Viet Nam).

23. Only if your name was Martha Burk.

24. Fuck yeah!

25. Jesus Christ. Sorry A-man. I'm one of them.

Thanks for opportunity and continuing rumbles. You and the operation are in all our prayers. V/R Dan Mulcahy

Will use these to torment the boys on my next evening of "Hurry Date." Most likely I will use: #'s 4, 10, 12, 13 & 14. If I like their answer's I follow up with #23 (minus the just kidding part,) if not I will follow up with #11. By that time the Hurry Date ought to be over in a hurry.

Posted by: SzaffireBlue on July 7, 2003 05:39 PM

1. Do you have a personal hero? If so, who is it?
I'd have to say Thomas Jefferson. Or, oddly enough, aircraft designer Donald Douglas.

2. What is your favorite book of all time and what made it so fucking good?
I have read so many I can't single one out.

3. What does “diversity” mean to you?
A variety of outlooks, opinions, and views. Color, last name, or where your folks hark from have nothing to do with this.

4. What is the wildest thing you’ve ever done?
I am one of the most staid and dull individuals you will ever meet, so it is no big deal: running my motorcycle up to 120, then seeing a sign that said "grooved pavement ahead". Yes, I slowed down.

5. Do you regret doing it?
No.

6. Can you drive a stick shift?
Yes, and skillfully. I drive an automatic today because I am a prisonor of Southern California and my knees don't handle shifting in traffic jams anymore.

7. What’s the highest speed you ever traveled in a car?
135 mph

8. Were you driving, or riding at the time?
Driving, and it was legal where I did it.

9. Which is better: snakes or spiders?
Spiders.

10. What is the most disgusting thing you ever ate?
Hard to say!

11. Have you ever shit your pants? Be HONEST!
Came close a time or two....

12. Was losing your virginity an enjoyable experience?
Nothing to write home about.

13. Should oral sex be outlawed or encouraged?
Encouraged!

14. Name one man with a fine ass.
A lover I had years ago.

15. Do you watch golf on television? If not, will you iron my shirts?
No and no.

16. Who is Martha Burk?
A woman who should stuff in a dry one, take a couple of Midol, and get back to ironing my shirts.

17. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I'd be the same bearish build, but weigh 60 lbs less.

18. Do you eat raw oysters?

19. Are you claustrophobic?
Not in particular.

20. If you rode a motorcycle, would you wear a helmet even if the law said you didn‘t have to?
Yes.

21. Name five great Presidents.
Jefferson, Coolidge, Hoover (minded his own damned business), Eisenhower (didn't do much, thank heavens), Ted Roosevelt.

22. Name three shitty Presidents.
Nixon (most Democrat Republican imaginable (price controls, food stamps, affirmative action...)), Clinton, Jimmy Carter.

23. Now call me fanny and slap my ass. Just kidding.

24. This is the 4th of July. Did you set off any fireworks?
No.

25. If you could have dinner and conversation with anyone in the history of the planet, who would you choose?
Either Thomas Jefferson or Samuel Langhorn Clemmins.

Hmm, interesting stuff. All right, since I've got nothing better to do (ok, nothing better I feel like doing):

1. No one person leaps to mind. I've always though Reagan and Churchill were pretty cool though.

2. A Confederacy of Dunces, by John Kennedy Toole. The writing is electric, alive somehow in a way that most books aren't. Sort of like reading Hunter S. Thompson, gonzo fiction as it were.

3. Diversity in the sense of Darwin. Good for the species, bad mutations die out etc. Keeps me from punching all the damn hippies who live around here.

4. Sorry, I don't do too many "wild" things. Odd things, yes. Like when I moved 3000 miles to a place where I had no contacts, no job lined up, and enough cash for maybe 2 months. I've done that twice so far.

5. Not really. The startup software company from the first time was a lot of fun and I'm enjoying the improved weather from the second one.

6. Nope. People tell me it's more fun, but I don't know - always seemed like a lot of work to me.

7. 120 mph.

8. Passenger in a friend's Mustang, on the way from Portland to Seattle.

9. Snakes, by far. You ever held one of those things? They're ALL meat. Take a good 20 or 30 spiders to even make a decent snack, plus some of them have hair.

10. Swallowed some cigarette ash once, from a Coke can someone had been using as an ashtray and that I mistook for my drink. Close second: sea water. I didn't think it was possible for anything to be that salty.

11. I had this stomach thing once. The less said about that the better, but take this one as a yes.

12. Losing my what now?

13. Neither. Unless it involves me, in which case strongly encouraged.

14. Uh...me?

15. No and go fuck yourself, respectively.

16. No clue.

17. My total lack of a reason to live, probably.

18. No.

19. No.

20. Probably.

21. Reagan, Nixon, Ted Roosevelt, John Adams, Andrew Jackson. None of them took shit from anyone. Honorable mention to GWB; it'll be interesting to see how he handles the increasingly confrontational Turks and North Korea.

22. Carter, John Quincy Adams, the guy who came before Lincoln and whose name I'm too lazy to dredge up.

23. Uh...blue?

24. No. Quasi-legal explosives aren't really my thing - see # 4 re: doing "wild" things.

25. Wasn't this a question on my college application essay? "Everyone says Jesus and Einstein" as Nicolas Cage pointed out, so let's see here...how about Douglas Adams? That might be entertaining.

18: something that resembles snot-on-the-half-shell is not my trip.

Just wanted to see if I could be incredibly stupid enough to post the same thing 3 times.

Posted by: Pandora III on July 8, 2003 11:49 PM

1) MSG (deceased) Joe C. Alderman. He taught me, and a couple of hunderd other young idiotically idealistic kids how to soldier when I reported to the 1st Ranger Bn in 1974. This was difficult in that we were all aggressive and bullet proof. He taught us the truth. He repeatedly said "Ranger, don't be in a hurry to die."
2) The last book I read "Band of Brothers". But in a week it will be the book I am reading now, "Why the Left Hates America" . It's always the last book I read.
3) Artificially imposed privileges for minorities.
4) Made love to my wife in the water on a Florida beach while my kids played in the sand and water 30-feet away.

13) Encouraged, I'm a big fan (hetero, anyway)
14) I'm a tit man, and never look at men's asses
15) no, no
