    You know, they did invent these things called butts, err, boats a while back. You could try one of those newfangled things instead of swimming. :lol :phat

    Little tip: Never rely on those directions. Especially mapquest. Googlemaps is the best, however always plan ahead.

    Last weekend I went to Baltimore for the night. Leaving Inner Harbor I tried to get on 83. I couldn't get to it due to construction. I knew if I got to 695 or 95 I could swing over to 83, but I didn't know how to get there. Well, googlemaps obviously didn't know this, so I busted out the atlas. Oh, I'm at the corner of rt 2 and Lombard street? Good deal. Studied the map for 10 seconds, drove a few blocks, saw a sign for 95 and off I went. Wee!

    I used to joke around with my older brother about maps and directions of any sort. The guy can't read a map, or follow directions, let alone an atlas or directions pulled up on the internet. :lol

    2 months so far, and I've only got 2 more months to go before I'm a free man again... plus two pairs of boots and a new cool hat for my collection.

    The Danish military decided to go with a new approach to getting a smaller force of more proffessional soldiers. And that was to just call in as many young people as they could handle and then keep them for four months as a sort of appetizer, then after those four months those who want to continue will just go on for another eight months before they get sent out to somewhere like Iraq or Kosovo for 6 months.
    I'm just in the army to try some stuff for a while that I can't try anywhere else and to take a break from going to school all the time. But now I can feel how I miss sitting at the school-bench, so I've signed up for a few universities and seminariums for when the army is through with me.
