        Talk about laziness - for years I heard sound guys checking mics by saying "Testing, Testing 1 - 2, Testing" and I got curious why they never say three.

              • on another note

                One of the books I bought when I was down under is a book called
                "Kokoda."

                I like to read military history (as long as it is well written and not dry and boring). This book docouments the role that Australia played in WWII along what is called the Kokoda Track. This is one of those books that you cannot put down. I am about halfway through and it is a fascinating book. Very good read.

                • Just a bit of lite reading then Cheffie.

                  The Kokoda Trail was one of the most inhuman sections of the Pacific War. Apart from the terrain, the disease, posinous watevers, there were the Japanese for the Australians to fight.

                  It has become virtually a pilgrimage for Australians to "Walk the trail".

                  • There have been more than a few parts in the book that make me wonder (and brought a few tears to my eyes) about man's inhumanity to man. What those Australian soliders had to go through .....

                      Have you read "An Army at Dawn"? It's supposed to be the first of a trilogy chronicling the United States' involvement in WWII. I'm about half finished with it and it is unusually well written. Sounds like it might be right up your alley.

                          No I haven't. I'll add the title to my list so next time I am in the bookstore I can have a look for it. Thanks.

                          • Those aren't pillows!!!!!


                            Incidentally, I just finished reading 'not a good day to die'

                            Tells of a battle in northern Afganastan where special ops folks along with some conventional forces and in conjuction with the local warlords are sent to clean up some light resistance and get more than they had bargained for.... I really enjoyed it as well. Maybe not an epic like the two mentioned above, but well written... I'll grab the author's name etc when I get home.

                                You start a thread about "Killing Threads"?


                                You are one od the prime contributors to it becoming a "NEVER ENDING THREAD" (NFT)

                                Did you want the fame, or has the pressure of the situation engineered this degree of "Naughty Boy" syndrome?
