Air Force Fun

Friday was the Spring Event for the Air Force Detachment here. My flight, protocol flight, was in charge of throwing the party and if I do say so myself, it was pretty sweet. It was western themed with blackjack, poker, rootbeer pong, live music, and some awesome Big Jim's food. I was very impressed with the number of people who showed up in costume and with the quality of everyone's costume. We bought probably twice as much food as we needed to and had many "great" door prizes and managed to be under budget by about $300. Overall it was a great experience and I hope to be in charge of the spring event later in my ROTC career when I'm a POC.

Saturday was a 300 themed 5k walk/run. About 8 of us dressed up in skimpy Spartan attire and got much attention. Many pictures were taken but currently I don't have any copies. When they start turning up on Facebook I'll be sure to grab them and post them here. The 200's had to run the course in formation in BDUs, something I'm not looking forward to next year.

Only two more weeks of school... Not looking forward to finals.

An Incident

What's funnier than a guy pooping his pants while standing straight up for no apparent reason? Well if that something exists none of the guys one my hall could think of it.

As I was walking down the stairs back to my room a guy stops me and says "Did you see what happened on our hall?" I reply that I had not heard of an incident and become quite curious as to what happened. Someone get caught drinking or smoking weed? Did someone get headb butted and chip a tooth again? Did that guy's crazy girlfriend rape him like before? Did another person slip on a banana and split their head open? I was not prepared for what I would find.

Seems this one guy, we'll call him Bob, was standing in the doorway of a room occupied by a few other guys having a pleasant conversation. Bob's face became a little disgruntled and one of the guys asked if Bob needed to fart. Nope, it wasn't a fart. Bob's face continued to turn red as another guy stated "you're either gonna get a hernia or shit your pants". At this point one of the residents of the room decided to push him out. While being forced back he let it go, right there, in front of everyone, fully clothed. Somehow his feces managed to work its way out the bottom of his shorts and fall flat onto the hallway floor.

Thank you housing for taking out the carpet in our hall and installing that cheap linoleum flooring. Our hall is the only hall with this type of flooring, apparently because the guys who came before us had too many issues with body fluids being expelled in the hallway. Bob was not high, drunk, sick, or impaired in any such fashion... he just thought it would be hilarious to join in a conversation and drop a smelly turd as if it were socially acceptable. I think we all learned something today; if we are the 'leaders of tomorrow' and the guys who lived in our hall before us were worse than us, then the 'leaders of today' are pretty damn stupid.

It's impossible to own the domain name without giving a special nod to Easter. If it wasn't for Jesus' appointment of Peter Rabbit to head the church, Easter would be just like any other solumn religious holiday with no real reason to celebrate it other than the religious aspect. So thank you Jesus and also a shout out to the Hare Club for Men for keeping this awesome holiday safe from the evil Bill Donohue. If you didn't understand anything I just said I feel very sorry for you.

In other news not much is going on. Gaim was renamed to Pidgin, iTunes is to start offering non-DRM'ed music, and so will Microsoft. There is also this interesting story about how the RIAA has screwed over record stores.

April is a full month finishing up classes and preparing for exams but once all that's over I plan on buckling down and making an initial release of jShout and also a nice review of Joost. To give you a preview of what it might be like: kinda crappy.
