For Halloween I’m going as that feeling you get at a store when you try to refold a sweater properly & put it back on the shelf.

I’ve been running into enough random shit in the internet lately that I’ve decided to revive the Blog…although it barely had a heartbeat before.
Popular Science actually did pretty well on this prediction…including the GPS concept…although the controls look like they were ripped off of a Betamax.
I recently discovered while wandering aimlessly around the interweb that Popular Science archived all of its previous publications and posted them on their website. Editions date back as far as 1872 with full illustrations from the original prints. More recent editions include all of the original articles and advertisements as well. Its pretty damn entertaining if you have some time to kill. All you have to do is search by the month and year you’re interested in. Check it out…educate yourself.
So…its the end of week 2 in Afghanistan…initial reports are positive, billeting is good, food is edible and porcelain is not hard to find. The drawbacks are obvious although the monetary compensation is comforting at times. The crazy thing is that NATO has a countless amount of small countries involved in this operation so you’re constantly running into Soldiers, Marines and Airmen from around the world. Strangely enough the American Navy has a strong presence here as well. Another plus is that your tobacco habits don’t cut into your wallet…$1.50 for a pack of name brand cigs if you smoke… $7.50 for a log of skoal or cope and cubans are in abundance. I would like to purchase a portable humador….although getting my hands on one may prove to be difficult. Anyways…all is good on the eastern front and I imagine if you have to be in Afghanistan you’d want to be in KAF.
