I'm the non-violentest person you can ever hope to (not) meet.

But I really like that guy's (the one who got killed with an umbrella) books. Learnt a lot about communism and what it did to my country from them.

Yeah, but why do you need such training? Oh well, I've got imagination Big Grin

RE: What Did You Learn Today?
Just left a presentation given by a NOAA meteorologist regarding sea level rise impact in the Florida Keys. Extrapolating out 30 and 60 years sea levels will be 1 and 2 feet higher respectfully. While this doesn't sound like much the average height above mean sea level of dry land here is only three feet. Now enter into the mix spring high tides, rainfall, wind driven seas and hurricane storm surges and it doesn't look too promising. Anyone want to buy a house in Paradise?

Girly wasn't born yesterday and has decades of training in this, so I really didn't learn anything new today. But today was the first time I heard a Base Commander say it explicitly in an in-briefing to an exercise. :D

Sorry. Fixed. ... I will be good. I will be good. .. I will be good. ... I will be good. .... I will be ..... I will ......

Wow, the definition I had in my head for this term (albeit "Honey Trap" in my head) was way more open and flexible. I tend to think of criminal operations using similar tactics.

I also thought about the ruse where a young woman feigns distress to draw a victim (usually a young male) into an ambush to be mugged or otherwise. Is there some other term for this?

Oh, the things I've learned today!

Today I learned that it's fucking cold.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

Today I learned that I'm more neurotic than I once thought and people STILL accept me. I need to embrace that. I should be thankful Drinking Beverage

I hope people can stick it through with me.

RE: What Did You Learn Today?
Eating spices like ginger, cloves, etc. from the cabinet seems to have gotten rid of my limb itch and crawly feelings almost entirely. It'd be nice if they got rid of those tiny soft scab patches with little rubbery, hair sized things sticking out from under the soft patches on my back also. Mind you, they stick out for only a couple of seconds each when I find one.

Think they call them moles, Bella. They ain't no big deal.

I don't enjoy being toyed with (well, maybe if done right... hmm, anyway). I'll get it out of you one way or the other, just you wait and see. Drinking Beverage
