Yeah, but those two old farts talking is always pretty fucking cool. It's always a good reminder to us all people are behind the news we read, and i posted a link here about a democrat being a complete arse, and nobody cared.

Maybe you should consider that there are other possibilities about why you got no response from some link you posted

Exactly. And I worked with them 20+ years ago in that fashion. So, when these guys talk about actually FLYING, in the cockpit, against MiG fighters. . .

I wasn't complaining; I am both an old fart myself, and former military as well.

Discussions of war machines, guts, and glory are like love stories for me...

So the threads gone from some old drone being shot whilst playing rounders to some old drones being shot whilst flying around

I didn't take your words as such, i just got out from our construction site and i had to jump in on something!

In case nobody knew, I'm a news junkie. I especially love it when living history collides with something, a person i know . People like Shakira are worth their weight in gold, and a few months back good old zipper educated me on combats his father served in. For a freak like me, this is epic!

This also is witnessing history being made. Finland was once under russian meddling and seeing it happening here in real life is epic, sad, but epic.

A funny thing is, i thought sakhir (Shakira) was in his thirties about 4 years back when we had the pleasure of exchanging opinions (btw, i was wrong then), i thought zippie was 35 or so, and i thought you were about 40.

So in my view, you're a really old fart!

Maybe in terms of years, but Lups probably has already lived a full life with no regrets and she is just getting started!

Hey if you ever read back the ssott, we are having a huge fight over so. Let's be clear here, i like the color, i just absolutely refuse to make wah happy (he is one of my best friends in the world!).

I might be younger, but i am wise enough to respect those who rock. To quote trump "that makes me smart."

Btw. Music. Name songs that influenced you. I thought about this earlier and we should have a thread here for it.

Haha, that's pretty damn true. I traveled Europe through alone at the age of 15, at fourteen I mildly ran away from a family holiday in Turkey and spent the week in Greece (which i never get right in English). I had a really cool job there on a construction job that paid about 2 bucks per hour. Dad was mildly ( i was grounded for six months, or until i realized how one can easily jump a second floor window without injuries...) pissed but he never made me go to a beach holiday again.

In any measurement criteria I haven't had a normal life. Most of my experiences haven't been as disciplined as yours but my respect for you all is real, and diversity in friendships brings us all closer.

And i fucking love it that you are a rider of the storm too.

Seems like like most who frequent the P/R section are over 40--guess as you get older politics and the debate surrounding it become more entertaining.

I told you to take the drone out from the men's room. Your defence was pretty pathetic.

I swear, i can't tale you anywhere Carlos!

Yeah, i was wrong about both of them by about 30 years. That's why i love these unsocial media thingies, none of us grow to like or dislike a person based of a social standing or age or gender. We end up making weird online friendships where we even manage to disagree more than to agree and unlike in real life, even that is okay.
