And Now, For Something Completely Different

Gangnam Style!

For those of you blissfully unaware of this craze launched by our South Korean allies, we should probably put up the original first:

Yes, you may kill us now. IF you can.

Obviously this started a dance crazy. Also obviously, this led to quite a bit of competition between the branches and we have, after much deliberation, found that the Merchant Marine just edges out Annapolis, but not by much.

OK, Marines, here’s your chance! Show ‘em how it’s DONE! OOO-Rahhh!

Thatisall.

    I do like how the Navy seems to have taken the final pose and turned it into a full Tebow. And there is something about those lovely white uniforms that makes a girl’s heart flutter….

    I agree. The Navy’s always had the slickest uniforms, ever. Gotta say, however, that a Marine in full dress looks pretty spiffy, too.

    OH, my Lord. That’s funny.

    LOVE this quote by The Who’s Pete Townshend:

    “All these hippies wandering about thinking the world was going to be different from that day on. As a cynical English asshole, I walked through it all and felt like spitting on the lot of them, trying to make them realize that nothing had changed and it wasn’t going to. Not only that, what they thought was an alternative society was basically a field full of six-foot-deep mud laced with LSD. If that was the world they wanted to live in, then fuck the lot of them.”

    I am at a total loss. I guess that’s what comes from not giving a shit about the latest fad.

    LC LOBO growls and barks:

    OT. But as you all know, not long ago I lost my Mother, Not long before she passed, one of my favorite cousins also passed, Randy was a special needs person, and just last week his Mom passed. And several others in my family have also passed on in this time. I ask not for prayers, thoughts for me, but for the rest of my family. In my life we have never been hit so hard by the dark one.

    And as most of you know I suffer from a chronic pain condition, Fibromyalgia. The past couple of weeks have been really hard on me. Even Roguetek thinks I need to get to a hospital, yet I already know what they will say. Today has been one of the worse days I’ve had in a LONG time. I don’t care what or who you believe in, I humbly ask for a small prayer, good thoughts…. So that I can get through this. You, my family, know, I owe each and everyone of you here, more than I can ever hope to repay. Yes, even YOU DJ. And “Duke Wayne”, Muzzy, you twisted fucks are still a part of my family. Like it or not suckers. :em07: Because ya’ll know that if you needed help, and I could do it, I would, happily, with a glad heart. I love you guys more than I can express.

    Or it could be that they departed in time to avoid what’s coming–pessimistic, I admit. Reminds me of how my mom lost four siblings within a few months a year or two ago–three in September alone.

    Oh there’s nothing like a crowd of hot men in uniform shaking their asses to cheer a gal up. :em01:

    Lobo, prayers going up. Chin up and keep putting one foot in front of the other.

    Yes, the uniform. The Navy officers and chiefs have lovely uniforms, but for the love of all that is holy, we need to get rid of the enlisted dress whites, which at least when my husband was active duty, looked a lot like a child’s pajamas. Dress blues were spiffy, but the whites? No.

    For the Navy/MC Birthday ball we went to in Norfolk, my husband wore his kilt with a charlie and his miniature medals. We had a Marine Lt Col come and tell us that he wished he could have worn his kilt, but sitting at the high table, he had to be in standard dress uniform, though I seriously think the Marines have the best of the U.S. dress uniforms.

    Done LOBO, I’m in a bit of a dark place myself as you know but the one thing that I don’t hesitate to do is get help if I need it. Do the same, go to the hospital….go anywhere you need to get help recovering (you know what I mean).

    count on prayers, and count on any help I can give you from this long distance.

    Jaybear, Colonel of Imperial Ancient Artillery @ #:
    Thanks Jay. The fucking Fibro isn’t tied to the other. In fact, they have no clue as to how one gets it. It could be from genetics, a prior injury, a prior illness, or whatever.

    And thanks all. Today has been a little bit better.

    LC Lobo – praying right now and standing with ya. It’s been a hard time – TOO hard – for a lot of us. But we can bear it together. Be at peace.

    Hi, LC LOBO! That’s rough as a cob. My heart goes out to you. I have an idea what it’s like: I was socked with the death of my sister (cancer), a much loved pet (cancer), and my mother (cancer + Alzheimer’s), all within six months’ time.

    A friend said to me, “Your mom and sister are just on an extended vacation in Paradise, and you’ll get there yourself in good time.” That comforted me more than anything. In the meantime, it hurts like crazy.

    My dad has fibromyalgia, but he was able to get some relief from, I think, cortisone shots. Said it made a HUGE difference. And this might help: http://www.webmd.com/fibromyalgia/guide/fibromyalgia-treatment-care

    hugs, Tallu

    Thanks Talluah. But, going to a doctor and getting them to actually put it into writing, requires something I don’t have. Money.
    In the morning I get to go to these “101″ classes that are part of being on food stamps here. So far on the Work in Texas site I’ve seen one job that is a “fit” for my skills. Cooking at the SA Airport Hilton. :em05: If I get that job, would anyone want pics of Paris if she shows up ?? Or the other one ?? All joking aside, just keep praying for me and that I get the job.

    Beware any YouTube video with a description containing the words “Korean pop star.” B^)

    Gotta admire those folks in the RoK, though…in two generations they went from being the Somalia of Asia to having the world’s eighth-largest economy. Shame the Norks are still chained by tyrannical socialism (pardon the redundancy).

    Kings Point wins every time over the Annapolis tightasses! (Full disclosure: I was once a nuc electrician in the US Navy, but am now a licensed engineer on a merchant ship.)
