At what point did we lose control of our country

As the Chalk Leader for my flight home from Afghanistan, I witnessed the
following:
When we were on our way back from Afghanistan, we flew out of Baghram
Air Field. We went through customs at BAF, full body scanners (no
groping), had all of our bags searched, the whole nine yards.
Our first stop was Shannon, Ireland to refuel. After that, we had to
stop at Indianapolis, Indiana to drop off about 100 folks from the
Indiana National Guard. That's where the stupid started.
First, everyone was forced to get off the plane-even though the plane
wasn't refueling again. All 330 people got off that plane, rather than
let the 100 people from the ING get off. We were filed from the plane to
a holding area. No vending machines, no means of escape. Only a
male/female latrine.
It's probably important to mention that we were ALL carrying weapons.
Everyone was carrying an M4 Carbine (rifle) and some, like me, were also
carrying an M9 pistol. Oh, and our gunners had M-240B machine guns. Of
course, the weapons weren't loaded. And we had been cleared of all ammo
well before we even got to customs at Baghram, then AGAIN at customs.
The TSA personnel at the airport seriously considered making us unload
all of the baggage from the SECURE cargo hold to have it reinspected.
Keep in mind, this cargo had been unpacked, inspected piece by piece by
U.S. Customs officials, resealed and had bomb-sniffing dogs give it a
one-hour run through. After two hours of sitting in this holding area,
the TSA decided not to reinspect our Cargo-just to inspect us again:
Soldiers on the way home from war, who had already been inspected,
reinspected and kept in a SECURE holding area for 2 hours. Ok, whatever.
So we lined up to go through security AGAIN.
This is probably another good time to remind you all that all of us were
carrying actual assault rifles, and some of us were also carrying
pistols.
So we're in line, going through one at a time. One of our Soldiers had
his Gerber multi-tool. TSA confiscated it. Kind of ridiculous, but it
gets better. A few minutes later, a guy empties his pockets and has a
pair of nail clippers. Nail clippers. TSA informs the Soldier that
they're going to confiscate his nail clippers. The conversation went
something like this:
TSA Guy: You can't take those on the plane.
Soldier: What? I've had them since we left country.
TSA Guy: You're not suppose to have them.
Soldier: Why?
TSA Guy: They can be used as a weapon.
Soldier: [touches butt stock of the rifle] But this actually is a
weapon. And I'm allowed to take it on.
TSA Guy: Yeah but you can't use it to take over the plane. You don't
have bullets.
Soldier: And I can take over the plane with nail clippers?
TSA Guy: [awkward silence]
Me: Dude, just give him your damn nail clippers so we can get the f**k
out of here. I'll buy you a new set.
Soldier: [hands nail clippers to TSA guy, makes it through security]
To top it off, the tsa demanded we all be swabbed for "explosive
residue" detection. Everyone failed, [go figure, we just came home from
a war zone], because we tested positive for "Gun Powder Residue". Who
the F**K is hiring these people?
This might be a good time to remind everyone that approximately 233
people re-boarded that plane with assault rifles, pistols, and machine
guns-but nothing that could have been used as a weapon.
Can someone please tell me What the F**K happened to OUR country while
we were gone?
Sgt. Mad Dog Tracy

Imagine this....

You buy a set of Nickies and want to design your own pistons.. You don't listen to the recommendations of the MFR or the guy that helped develop the cylinders... Instead you decided that you'l call JE and have your own made..

This is of course after you buy a Burette, lathe, milling machine and spring rate tester, doubting the adviice of the people that do this everyday and are more dedicated to it than anyone in the world...

You'll then commence to heat your cylinders in the oven and then install your custom designed pistons into the cylinders while they are north of 300 degrees...And the pistons are at room temperature..

Then when they normalize you realize that you just screwed up 3K worth of parts and made such a stupid mistake that no one is willing to help you get out of trouble..

The story is real and not exaggerated!

I got a car in one day with brake problems and found OIL of some sort in the M/C. When I told the guy the oil caused the rubber to swell and go soft and the only way I would work on it was to replace everything, he got excited. "All it needs is a M/C!" The other mechanic that worked there agreed to do that for him. Next week it needed a caliper. couple weeks later it needed the other caliper. then the rear wheels and proportion valve.

Took a while, but one day when I asked the other mechanic how many times he was going to put is name on this cars work orders for brakes? I pointed out in court all they are going to see is you repeatably worked on this car and it failed! He tagged the work order "unsafe to drive" and quite trying to save the guy money.

I've had it...

Today I blew a fuse when a customer told me that he used the starter to break his engine in and that it took "fifteen to twenty minutes to break in and achieve oil pressure" on his new engine.

What in the hell is wrong with these people?? Did all common sense fly out their nose last time they sneezed?

I'm done with it. I hope anyone who wanted an engine kit got one, because this won't be happening again.

So, it's 1 am and Jake's cell phone rings. We are, of course, asleep and we both jump as we assume there must be something wrong with either Jake's father or one of my parents. Jake opens his eyes just enough to see that it is an overseas call and he just hits the ignore button. Not 5 minutes later it rings again....same number. So, Jake picks it up this time and says "WHAT"

This guy says who he is and then asks if he woke Jake up. Jake says "YEAH". The guy keeps talking! Jake tells him to call back tomorrow because it is 1am! Then the guy asks the dumbest question I've ever heard....

"Would you like to write down the phone number where you can reach me tomorrow?"

Uhhhhh...NO DUMB ASS! I wouldn't like to write down your damn phone number. It is 1 am, we WERE asleep! I don't keep an ink pen and pad in my pajamas! IDIOT!

Hi Jake-

What might cause a 2.0 liter, #3 intake valve to pound into the head? I only was able to get 7K miles from this used head before this happened to it (again). I'm now pulling the 3/4 head inside of the engine bay rather than dropping the entire engine. I believe this is about the third time this has happened (3 different, used, stock heads) and I thought it was usually an exhaust valve that would pound its seat.

Thanks for any advice and if you ever donate any engine parts, feel free to send them my way.

Hey guys, I've got a 98 1.8T. I've had a k04 and chip for a while and wanted to get more performance. I was recommended to port and polish the intake and exhaust. We found out they used abrasive material to do it like gritty sand. So I got with my friend that tunes Hondas and we decided to try it ourselves. We got a bag of sandblasting sand and hooked up into the intake and started the car. We had to hold the gas so it would run. He wanted to let the engine suck in the sand through the intake so it would port it out and then push it out the exhaust so it would port the exhaust manifold.
I was worried that it might cause problems but he figured it'd be OK as long as we didn't make boost and it get sucked in the turbo. After running the car and letting it suck in sand we got about half way through a 25 lb bag. The check engine light was on and the engine was bucking and kicking and sounding really weird. We stopped and hooked the car back up normal and took off the sand supply. We tried to start it again and it was really hard. Once started it couldn't idle and kept making weird noises. We took it out and drove it and it started to make scraping and knocking noises.
Help! Can anyone tell me what to do! My buddy only does Hondas so he doesn't know much about Audis.

On the topic of running out of gas... The day before my wife gave birth, we were driving back from a party. Near home, about 11pm, I notice my neighbors beetle is pulled over, half on half off the road, flashers on.

I stop, and my neighbors daughter (I think she is 16 and a new driver) is at the wheel. She says she ran out of gas. I offer to push her off the road, and run home and get some.

"Hey, take it out of gear, and I'll get you off the road"
And from in the car I hear her say (too herself):
"Four (Clunk)
Three (clunk)
Two (clunk)
One (clunk)
Okay, I am out of gear!"

I had to try not to giggle about that. I ran home, got some gas and asked her where the gas cap was. Keep in mind, I don't own a beetle, and have never really been around them, and it was near midnight. I had no clue where the filler neck was.

"I don't know, my dad always fills it up!"

We found the filler neck just as her dad showed up with a jerry can. So I saved my gas for the mower, and headed back home. I was reluctant to post about this, as the girl is really sweet, but its too funny not to share.

I posted the exact same thing as Poser.

Better yet, send him through the MN hunter safety course. That'll learn him some extra stuff about survival.

Maybe you could create a tactical lure launcher for your railed fishing pole. You know, where you could put a blank .308 case in the bottom and set your lure on top to launch your black tactical lure and black tactical spiderwire fishing line.


Lure launcher? OMG......back to the drawing board!!!!! Don't spread this around, but I'm also working on a tactical rod holder! Cup holders, rails, all the goodies. Might have to add a spot for some extra blank cases for the lure launcher! This is all on the down low of course............

What do you mean they don't have a clue? These mall ninjas can survive anything the urban environment can throw at them with all of their tacticool gear! Well except of course a natural disaster, terrorist attack, mob riot, animal attack, angry old lady with a cane(aka wolfie in a few years), a gang attack, a power outage and 3" of snow. But just about anything else they'd be perfectly prepared for!
