I grew up in quiet times. Not a lot of folks talked about joining the military. More talked about which college to go, or which trade they were interested in pursuing. I didn't have a definative direction in mind, so a counselor suggested one of those lengthy personnality survey's to define some of your interests. One of the strongest suggestions from the survey was the military. If I could go back, I think I would take that suggestion. After spending time and talking with several good buddies, who are veterans, I think I would have liked it.

Some people are hating the "zooming animation" on the new iPhone. It's causing some ot get headaches, get dizzy or feel motion sickness. I don't even like it when you go to move your desktop icons around and they jiggle till you move them.
Okay, I thought I was one of the cool kids, for a little while. After my old one tanked, my wife surpirsed me with a new iPhone 5. The more I use it, the more I like it. My Siri has an Australian accent, and calls me Rick Daddy.
