Re: Changing user names

Hey there. I'm pretty sure this is my first login in months, and I feel like a change. The username 'Blacksheep' appears to be available. Any chance I can have it changed to that?

Much appreciated.

Re: Civil Unrest In Middle Eastern Arab States

I'm guessing it implies any form of military action short of boots on the ground. That's what was being stressed, according to the declaration. Also... This is craziness, madness, arrogance.

Shooting protesters has happened in more "civilized" countries than Libya. That is sort of my point... why would it be all that shocking? Asshats are asshats.

You'd think someone with the money to do something like that would at least read/watch the news and know better or be more wary or prepared when they travel there. Surprisingly enough, that is almost never the case. I have a hard time pitying these people, as a result.
