    Did it in the field once, used our fresh out of the academy officers brand new socks out of his ruck to clean up. My Sr. Chief caught me and never said a word because he hated him more than we did. A few months later went back out and Sr. Looked me dead in the eye and told me that if I touched his ruck that he’d shoot me.

    I stopped trusting them long ago. And I'm not sure just a pocket would cover the damage. Last time it happened to me I was lucky, was headed to go kayaking and was going to change into swim trunks anyway.

    Old t-shirts can come in handy otherwise. I ripped the hem off of one to fix the shift linkage in a Lancia Beta I used to drive. Got me back on the road and held up for 9 months while I waited for the part to arrive from Italy. Neat car, but it was hard to keep it going (ran much better when tuned to European specs, though). Had to slap it just right to get it into first gear, and later as a parking attendant I ran into a Ferrari that was the same way -- nobody else could move it, guy was gone into the club, I hopped in and slapped her right into first. Italians.

    Rob, those condos are looking good! When do they plan to open?

    I will probably be on, but you have some story to get through before things open up like in the first one. I could start a new character, though. That cell belonged to my previous employer, I can message you my new one.

    Just got these today.
    https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-G93...+g933+artemis+spectrum+gaming+headset+-+black

    If they act up in the slightest like my last pair did they are going back tomorrow and I am ordering those. I was looking at them but then saw the price. Now that I think about it though, the music and sound in Destiny have to be listened to on a good headset though to really get the full experience of the 3D surround sound IMO. Even when I am by myself I play with them on.

    I was big into pc gaming years ago but I've learned that it's a pretty deep hole for me to fall into. I get so wrapped up that I end up not doing other important things. :anonymous:
    My gaming these days is limited to SimCity buildit on my iPhone. :laughing:
    I bought GTA 5 for the Xbox and put it down after 5 straight hours after starting it. Never turned it on again.
    The Xbox strictly belongs to the kids now.

    Yeah, I get that way too. I used to play non stop Halo for hours, until I put that down. Then when I moved to North Dakota and hunting season ended there was NOTHING to fucking do. So Britt recommended getting the PS4 and Destiny. Me, Rich and a couple other guys played all the time. Then when I moved I put it down and only used the PS4 for DVD's for a while, but then Destiny 2 came out and the pull was too strong. It really is a badass game.

    Played 5 hours last night with out even blinking.
