I wish I could find the picture, but, Brian have you seen the picture showing a guy diffusing a bomb with another guy behind him with what appears to be a paper bag that he is about to pop? Must be some sort of initiation.
I will try to find it...

Yes, I've seen it. It's been circulating for a year or two now. Pretty sick joke. However, I would bet this is a training op.

Yeah, it's pretty old, but seeing that I have never been in that position, it is funny as poop... We can say poop on here right???

I'll go with Oldie, but goodie. First time I remember seeing it either.

Their is no way it isn't a training op. Even if it was I still probably wouldn't have had a very good sense of humor about it.

Looks like an M117, 750 ponder. They are wearing the MED ENG EOD 7-B's. About a 70 pound suit of kevlar and lead plates, hot and heavy.

Ms. Ixthus, if you've ended up on ebaum once or twice, can I take it you've made it to www.fark.com)? I didn't want to just come out and call you a farkette. If you haven't seen it, it's pretty great.

"After you steal a boat from someone, don't enjoy it in the water directly behind their house." Fark.com

Someone really did this??? :confused:

Best part about Fark is the discussion threads.

/your dog wants as many posts as me. :rolleyes:

I still don't know the origins of that one, but anybody who's been on there has seen a "/your dog wants ..."

What's the background on that site Doug?

Saw the link one day through ebaumsworld.com and checked it out.

It's got a huge following. They'll post links on there from time to time, and have been known to bring down servers because of the volume of people from Fark trying to go to the link.

It's a great place to get your news and rant about it. Although I usually just lurk there.

Take down servers holy sh@t! That's a serious volume.

You want to talk volume, I just queried on "another company's" boat owners' forum as to how they handle the discussion of other brands and where, if anywhere, they call it promotion. I was scrolling through the member list looking for my handle to see if I'd registered, and to get to east tx skier, it took 125 pages. That's one active board.

Did that boards name start with a M or C? I suspect M. :confused:
