    I like to build plastic model planes, ships, and cars, and I think that a 3D printer could be cool for the hobby.

    From the various articles I've read about this, it sounds to me like this bribery thing was passed on to the next officer assigned to that position.

    Burger King had one too once. It was too big for one person, but I liked it. I kind of wished they would have made a normal size hamburger like this, or just put the pizza sauce and cheese on a Whopper.

    I wonder if they'll have a side mission where you can run over protesting students with a tank.

    Actually Probie, it WAS a hate crime. When Rachel Jeantel testified under oath that Trayvon Martin described George Zimmerman as a "creepy ass cracker", it proved Martin's attack on Zimmerman was a racially motivated hate crime. Sorry, you can't have it both ways. If racial slurs makes other attacks hate crimes, you can't excuse this one just because the perpetrator got shot and killed.

    I've read Bill Ward's side of the story,but haven't seen anything from the rest of the band. But if what he wrote was true, I have lost all respect for Black Sabbath.

    I'm leaning toward traitor. We're supposed to believe this guy is all about freedom, and that the people have a right to know what the government is doing and he runs to... wait for it... China? Think it's a coincidence that while Obama is talking with Xi about all this hacking crap China is pulling, that this guy does his little whistle blowing act and runs to China?

    1st, grounding planes to find out if the cause of the crash was a freak accident with that particular aircraft or a possible problem with all aircraft of that type is fairly normal from what I've seen in the news. 2nd, I'm wondering if the sequestration funding cuts caused this plane (and others) to skip maintenance.

    USNinJapan2 - Interesting, I didn't know .38s weren't issued anymore. I was thinking the .38 might have been issued to a pilot, most likely a helo pilot being from Zama.

    I think it would be great to show Hashimoto a dossier on a "goverment employee" with his family history, and past and present activities see if he finds this person should be fired. I'd be he would in a heartbeat.

    Amidalism - I believe they left the subs where there were, because they think there are still bodies in them. I forget what the official term is, but a sunken warship is considered a war burial ground and usually isn't disturbed.

    These laws work in Japan, because Japan citizens are used to being sheep. They never had the right to own weapons, and have accepted it. And who, I wonder, decided that the peasants shouldn't have the means to defend themselves or revolt?

    Erik Rick, sorry about that. I'm in Yokosuka. I must have misread something, I thought you were from Yokosuka, too. Well, I don't know much about Sasebo other than it's supposed to be pretty quiet there. I can tell you that anything like that happening here would end up with Security posting watches on Command Hill (as has happened in the past), which is something that everybody can see.

    But yes there are things that happen that not everybody knows about, but people talk. A lot. True some are just rumor mill stuff, but a lot ends up being true. And you know that if three drunk sailors walked into strangers houses on base, the whole base would be talking about it, and there'd probably be some "housing safety" training for everybody.

    Zen student, you're leaving out the part about the terrorists trying to hide in schools, hospitals, and neighborhoods. Perhaps if this fictional Monammed kid of yours had parents with a set of balls, they wouldn't let terrorist operate in thier back yards. Which would keep them from taking the colateral damage when the terrorists are taken out. Remember, you're with us or against us. It's as simple as that.

    Erik Rick, I'm on the base. If this crap happened, I'd (or somebody I know) would hear about it. If you're here too, you know how small this base is, and how fast word travels. Obviously, things do happen on base, I'm not saying they don't. But not these TYPES of things. From reading these articles, you'd think it's natural for Americans to just go wandering into peoples houses. Like I said, they do this crap in places they won't get beat down or killed for doing it. They KNOW what they're doing.

    You'll notice that these idiots aren't pulling this crap on base. You don't hear about a drunk 24 year old walking into a CO's house do you? As somebody mentioned above, you don't hear about them walking into strangers houses back in the States either. Why? Because they KNOW what would happen to them if they did. They're too comfortable here, they know they can get away with thier bull$hit behavior.

    Why would anybody be surprised? Is Obama's family on Obamacare? Then why would they expect he would deprive himself and his family the proctection of armed guards, just because he wants to disarm law abiding US citizens?
