    Not me.
    I had a good laugh when a 10 year old Mexican kid complimented me on my swim suit the other day. Since I wearing a one piece 'stitch, I assume he was thinking of a wet suit, not a swim suit. :lol3

    And yes, I realize it's a costume too. At least it's a functional costume.

    Have you considered changing his diet? Maybe a different food selection will cause less blow outs.

    Oh, no. They're turd-producing machines no matter what you feed 'em. Only the consistency and character are variable.

    "Character" :rofl:poser

    Tedder and I were teaching a class together when a student called my 'stich a "onesie". Which it isn't- it's a Twosie!

    I'm 95% sure he was one of the 1SGs at Army OCS a couple years ago, I remember the skulls on his bike as well as the axe.

    Ugh. What a self-important tool. That doesn't bode well for the future of Army. As we used to say, the only thing worse than a Lance Corporal with a badge (MP's) was a 2nd Lt. with a compass.

    I don't know what you guys are objecting to. He looks to me like he is squared away. Still pretty young, but has a bunch of stripes. I'll bet he earned them too!

    Keep your knees in the breeze, Sarge!

    I didnt realize the US military has an NCO rank with skull and cross bones on it. Guess that makes me a shitty E5.

    He's too young to be an E-8.

    Oh yeah, it's called the rank of "Got every meritorious promotion, leaped at every non-deployable staff transfer I could, sold out my guys to move up not out Sgt".
    But he could be a solid guy, I just don't see the need to 'front'. I have a USMC sticker on my truck, good enough. If people want to know they can ask. Unfortunately few Americans genuinely care enough to. Tomorrow will be "oh, I'd better text Jason, he is a fireman and it's 9/11 day". And they will do it right after they nod their head in agreement with whatever news douche is badmouthing the 'greedy and uncaring' teachers on strike in Chicago.

    He looks like a GySgt I used to be stationed with in North Carolina. He had a Harley with Ape Hangers though it looked a bit different than that in 2007 when I was still there. With the way his carrer was going he should have been a MSGT or MSGYSGT by now so the stripes would match but if you notice the skull and cross bones in the middle of his stripes they may not be legit :freaky

    No, you aren't fat, drunk and stupid because you don't like to see pics of people getting hurt. You are, however, doing a fine impression of an idiot because you think the rest of us shouldn't like it (whether we do or don't is immaterial), and therefore such pics shouldn't be posted. You may be fat and/or drunk and/or stupid, but those are separate and distinct challenges for you to deal with on your own.

    Stripes are period appropriate and my heart jumped thinking it was the sweet Triumph GT6 but alas, it is just a Spitfire with a removable hardtop.
    Still nice though and no fails. :D
    The GT6 had the best 2L, inline, push rod six evah! The engine was a lump when stroked to 2.5L for the TR6 IMO.
