For WoW folks out there — Oh,  and Waffles:

 

—————————-
 What is World of Warcraft?
—————————-
World Of Warcraft is an online game, virtual universe and social
networking space that has attracted the fancy of millions of people
all around the world.  This pay-to-play massively multiplayer online
role-playing game (MMORPG) was released in November 2004, and is now
the world’s most popular MMORPG, with an estimated 8.5 million users.
As in most MMORPGs, WoW players assume an identity and an avatar which
represents them in the game world.  Players explore the virtual world,
fight monsters, perform quests, or do battle with enemy factions. 
Success in the game is rewarded with virtual possessions, gold, and
the prestige associated with reaching higher skill levels.
But who plays World Of Warcraft, and what motivates them?  The answers
are surprising…  Read on to learn more about WoW, and pick up some
tips on succeeding in the game if you’re already into it.

In case anyone might be wondering,  the bob rankin pieces usually come from his current news letters.  I don’t go surfing for them.

The NFL has taken mild action against Mr. Vick.  That sounded reasonable.  I hesitate to say that keeping him from training camp will do a great deal except create a huge problem for the team to over come if he is allowed to play later this season. 

It’s that “until guilty” stuff.  I’d rather not do without it,  however. I’m sure glad I don’t have to wield that sort of power and have to make those political decisions for the “good of all.”

I wonder if Mr. Bidden,  he that politically wants the troops out now,  has ever looked at a map and used his head.

President Bush got us into a place one removed West from India;  skipped a Nation State; got us into Iraq – which was a skip one West.

Skip one more West and Lebanon is there;  ostensibly Western.  Turkey is North – Quasi Western.  West once more Greece, Pro-Western.

North:  Bulgaria/Eastern/Russian.  North Western: Albania,  Pro What.  Croatians,  What?

South of Israel.  Surrounded by foes.  Then West:  Egypt,  Pro-Islam/Secular:  Skip one west:  Algeria:  Pro-France (which I suppose one could say;  Pro-West.).

South some more:  Sudan:  Contested.  Ethiopia:  Pro-Western.  Somalia:  Contested.  More South:  Kenya:  We are currently allowing them into our National pocket book to sway them this way.  Bar es Salaam:  We are running operations from there.

Another point,  Mr. Bidden:  It took us six months to gear into Iraq,  and would have taken longer if not for the Air Forces deployed to support Afghanistan.  And the fact that as far back as the late sixties/early seventies,  we hadn’t negotiated the secret bases in UAR.  You damn fool,  how long do you think it is going to take to disengage from a live enemy,   gather equipment and get out?  And to say little about the indigenous folks bleeding all over hell and the radicals shooting small holes in the clouds. 

I agree that the Iraq’s need to step up.  However,  if the last few congresses we have fielded are any indication,  it is not easy to over come differences of opinion and make a unified country work.

Blah:  You stink Mr. Bidden.  And your view of politics.  And your party  –  get your liberal hand out of the public’s pocket and put the welfare/SSI’s in the fields and send the illegal’s home.  Mr. Bidden!

Oh,  well.  Why should I get up-set.  I think that is the program,  is it not?

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
