Daily Afternoon Randomness (47 Photos)

So much props to Amanda Kate for going out on the 405 over the weekend. She’d been planning it for a month. The cops were nice (Chivers) and just wanted to make sure she did it safely. Chive On, Amanda! Give her some props at her Facebook Page.

        I'm not a fan but I'm not a hater either, but even I wouldn't ever go that far. Unless there's an entire generation that wants to admit to being a goofy faded copy of a copy of a fax of a copy of a fax of something someone overheard and scribbled on a bar napkin and then used it to wipe up their spilled Bud Lite.

    Have a buddy in Charlie and i'm sure they wouldn't want people discussing the specifics of their rough road lately, but to see them recognized on the chive for their service has made my day and I'm sure it's made theirs.

    a big CHIVE ON to the chive today

        Paula, you suck beyond the maggots these guys are over there fighting.

      • JstevensF

        Tut tut Paula you know those fighting a real war rather than an cyberspace one are off limits unless you wish to associate yourself with the types of trolls who just offend and aren't funny (and quickly get ignored and forgotten). I do appreciate that you reeled it back in calling them cowboys when other titles are readily available but still the point stands, all troops whether they be; yanks, brits or even iranian remain off limits to the more sophisticated trolls such as yourself.

            How's about you go over there and join our boys in uniform in those designated 'hot zones' and see if you still think it's not a 'real war'.

    • true_patriot

      Military worship is so lame. These wars are breaking America financially and the troops are part of the problem.

      • http://www.facebook.com/thejadepickens Jade Pickens Stohel

        Blaming troops for the war is equivalent to blaming the toilet paper for your bowel movement. Your government tells them where to go. Fight the man; leave the troops alone.

        • Observation

          I half-agree with you. While I think your point is valid, the US military is completely voluntary, unlike other countries where people are forced to fight wars against their will. I am all for defending this country, but glorifying people to get paid to kill people who (many of them) are fighting against their will, seems out of place.

          • -J-

            It is only voluntary because there are enough brave men and women to step up. Don't forget there was a draft in this country so "completely voluntary" is only valid to a point.

            • Observation

              It's voluntary because the military has an enormous budget, coming from your and my paycheck to offer a great financial incentive for people to join the military.

              • Smitty

                Guess what? The Military gets their checks taxed just the same… to pay themselves?
                Budget has nothing to do with it. Some of us have answered the call to duty to defend the likes of you. We don't do it for lucrative pay, trust me.

                What's you next comeback? They only sent the poor to war? Bullshit. Tillman gave up a career in the NFL to serve. At the height of combat action, there were many congressional reps that had sons and daughters over there. Some didn't come back. It's not money or nepotism.

                You ungrateful armchair commentator civvies make me sick.
                Sign up or shut up.

                • Fritz

                  Amen, Smitty!! Trust me the pay sucks for what you have to do on a daily basis. You work 24hrs straight and the you're on call for 24 more. If you F'n JACKWAGONS out there are so high and mighty trying doing what these troops overseas and at home for just one day. There is no way you could hang with them!!

                • Country Boy

                  Damn right, we get our checks taxed just like everyone else. I pay almost 1/3rd of my check in taxes. Still think we do it for the pay? The pay is decent (only cause I live in Kansas where things are a helluva lot cheaper than the coast), but the real reason that we do it is for is the principal behind our country. We do it so people can live without fear of getting blown up in the streets or at their job.

                  Kick ass, come home safe and Chive On Charlie 2/87!

          • http://www.facebook.com/thejadepickens Jade Pickens Stohel

            Our troops will get the same "glorification" as our police, fire fighters, etc. Anyone who risks their life on a daily basis so I can eat my fruit loops in peace in the mornings, has my respect. I don't care if they are fueled by money or a feeling of civil duty to protect the country they love. Their pay is not worth their sacrifice, by any means. If you have an issue with people being forced to fight, you should probably be writing a stern letter to their government. Just be thankful our military is voluntary, you didn't sign up, and you never have to know the sacrifice our troops know, despite all the gold and treasure you assume they are receiving.

            • Observation

              There is no need to put me down, simply because my opinion differs from yours, and is also logical. I chose not to join the military because I have better things to do, and there are people more willing and qualified than I am to do it, just like any other job out there. No one forces people to take the risk, it's their choice, and it's my choice not to. It doesn't make me any less of a person. I too am fighting every day so you can lead a better life, but you don't see me walking around with a medal.

              • Smitty

                By your own admission, you didn't join, yet you are trying to pass judgement and comment on why others have? WTF? How can you comment on something you do not understand, not being a member?

                Better things to do? Pray tell what.

                Fighting every day? Fighting what? Are you Police, Fire Fighter, EMT?
                In the Military we call those first responders and they are just as important as, if not more important than a standing military. We go over for a year at a time to fight, but the first respondent "fight" for their entire career.
                But what do you do?

                • Observation

                  I work for an institution which helps people with learning and other disabilities. I don't kill people for a living, I help those who cannot help themselves. Not every fight is a physical one. Could I join the military? Of course, but I am better suited at what I do and you're better suited to do what you do. I have nothing against people defending this country, as I said in the very beginning, killing those who want to kill us is a necessary evil, a matter of survival. My point was, I don't understand why it's being so glorified. There are many outstanding people doing important things and making sacrifices for this country every day, but they don't get medals, sometimes they don't even get paid.

              • BeccaB86

                Your opinion is far from logical. If no one volunteered, the draft would surely be re-instituted. But as flawed as I or anyone else may think it, it is just an opinion.

                • Observation

                  I'm not even sure what you're talking about here. When did I say that the draft wouldn't be instituted if no one volunteered? In either case, if the draft were re-instituted this would be like the majority of other countries in the world, where you have no choice but to serve – often times fighting for a cause with which you don't agree.

                  • BeccaB86

                    You didn't – you said the U.S. military is completely voluntary, and also that your opinion is logical. I only pointed out that your opinion isn't logical based solely on the premise that our military is completely voluntary citing the consequences of not having enough volunteers.

                    Volunteering to serve your country doesn't necessarily mean you're volunteering to fight and kill people who were forced to do the same against their will, it's simply an unfortunate derivative of their chosen profession.

                    • Observation

                      But there are enough volunteers, which is why my argument is logical.

                      The objective of the profession is to eliminate the enemy by any means necessary. It isn't a derivative, it is the objective, but I like that you highlighted that this profession is a chosen one. People can choose to do anything they want, but not everyone gets equally rewarded for their efforts. C'est la vie.

                    • usn

                      the objective of my profession is not to kill anyone. sure there are those of us that have to take a life in the line of duty, but that does not mean that everyone in the military is out killing.

              • http://www.facebook.com/thejadepickens Jade Pickens Stohel

                I didn't put you down. I merely responded to your statement. In fact, the only thing I said directly to you is to use your letter writing skills and try to squelch other countries forcing their people to fight. If you felt attacked or guilty, that is on your own accord.

          Stuff White People Like 48, Supporting the Troops but Not the War

          It's not exactly a secret white people are strongly antiwar. They have been against all forms of armed conflict since the end of World War 2. Since then, just take a look at any antiwar protest and you are virtually guaranteed to see a throng of white people with elaborate and clever signs stating their displeasure with the current government and it's war.

          For the most part, when white people are discussing war they are speaking to other white people who already agree with them. So rather than having to engage in a debate about the need for armed conflict, they can simply pat themselves on the back for being opposed to the war and then throw out some information about Halliburton or Kellogg Brown & Root. These are known as "serious talks" and when they are finished everyone feels good about themselves and their beliefs.
          But from time to time white people find themselves in one of the most awkward situations they will ever face: criticizing the war in front of someone who has a child in the military.
          This often comes about when white people make the assumption that everyone around them is exactly the same as them. Additionally, most white people operate under the assumption that the last white person to serve in the military was John Kerry.

          Faced with the twin problems of having directly insulted someone's child and potentially being forced to admit they were wrong, white people needed a solution. That solution was to say that they support the troops and not the war. Technically this is an entirely new insult that implies that the troops are dying for nothing. It provides enough cover for white people to assume that they are still liked by the military person that they just insulted. Whether it's actually true is completely irrelevant.

          But before you let your anger build up toward these white people, remember that this really isn't their fault. When white people say they support the troops and not the war, they are actually saying that they support spending time and money training the troops for combat, but that they also support never actually using them in real-life conflict. To you it might seem silly to spend all this energy learning skills that you'll never use, but the truth is that white people have been supporting a system like this for years. It's known as a liberal arts education.

      • Guest Commenter

        The troops are never a part of the problem. Self sacrifice is never a problem. Don't confuse recognizing someone else putting their life on the line for the greater good (regardless of whether you agree with how "good" that really is) with "military worship."

        • Observation

          Self sacrifice and sacrifice for financial gain are different things, let's not forget that.

          • canitfatso

            you're thinking of mercenaries. US armed forces do not equal soldiers of fortune

            • Observation

              The only difference between a US armed forces soldier and a mercenary is that a mercenary is someone who is not related to the conflict by nationality or is acting on behalf of a party in the conflict.

              • usn

                so in your logic all military members are in it for the money? oh and something a lot of people seem to forget. the military is all voluntary, yes. but at the same time we don't always volunteer to go to the places we get sent. some of us do volunteer, but there are plenty of men/women that don't have a choice.

                • Observation

                  I do not believe that all military members are in it for the money, but I also don't believe that all mercenaries are in it for the money. Everyone responds to different incentives. And, I know – for a fact – that there are many people in the military who joined out of the feeling of duty for their country, to defend our freedoms. I am merely arguing a fallacy, that doesn't mean I don't support the troops.

                  • mouse

                    This whole conversation, every one of your comments, implies that you do not support the troops. You do everything but say it out directly. You say they do it for "financial gain" and then turn around and say that you don't believe they are all in it for the money – you can't have it both ways. If you truly support them then you can't place blame on them for doing their jobs.

          Freedom of speech is not a right granted by modern day soldiers. Those who fought against the British in the Revolutionary War I will credit. Plus you're not keeping anything safe.

        The 8 Most Obnoxious Internet Commenters, 8 The Non-Believer

        Typical Comment

        "FAKE! Did you see how that guy exploded just BEFORE he hit the tree. Fake, don't waste my time."

        Who Are They?

        They like to think of themselves as the jaded skeptic in a world full of gullible sheeple, determined to be a flickering light of truth in a dark internet full of lies and fake viral videos. "No one could really fart on a birthday cake that way!"

        Why We Hate Them:

        The guys we're talking about here are the knee-jerk skeptics, the ones who take it too far. They have an automatic reaction to call "fake" on pretty much any video that shows anything remotely remarkable happening. They're not doing it in some grand quest for truth, they just want to feel smarter than the room and generally suck all of the wonder out of the world.

        This is the internet, if we want to believe some dudes can catch sunglasses on their face like that, who are they to take that from us, dammit!

    • WakkaWakka

      It appears to be missing a leg, too.

    • llano2

      Here is part of a Reuters story. Apparantly it is real.

      But when photos of airborne Brutus appeared in Australian newspapers recently, they immediately sparked doubt that such a massive crocodile existed.

      "That crocodile is 100 percent real. We've had forensics police look at the picture," said Maxine Bowman, a staff member of Adelaide River Cruises, who take daily tours on the river to feed Brutus and other crocodiles in the area.

    • karl

      i want to see the shark that bit his arm off

      • dance forrest dance

        no according to reuters, the croc had his arm pinned in a car accident after being chased by cops in texas so he actually had to saw it off to escape and he's been living in australia ever since

      That was some funny shit… Well played..

    • drezillen

      Doh, i know this girl. She works in seattle. Didnt know we had an apple store?

    • its_forge

      She crossed an eye to express how bored she is, doofus.

      • j_rizzo

        Why don't you tone down the language a bit, fella.

        • its_forge

          Sorry, I seriously didn't think "doofus" was that bad a pejorative, I was trying to be light about it. I'm having a really shitty fucking day at work though, some ignorant fucking bitch in a Lexus stopped in the middle of the "straight" lane this morning and decided she wanted to turn left, but the left lane was full, so she just fuckin' sat there and I almost plowed into her and a fucking Florida Power & Light truck almost turned me into ROAD PIZZA. Then we got one of our five technicians on leave and another one in the Bahamas so the three of us fielded 224 calls plus about 115 floor tickets and THEY all left at FOUR, so I've done ANOTHER 46 calls by myself. Now. What again is YOUR issue? = ) << Yes I really mean that smiley!!!

    • johnstar

      This girl is actually part of some guy called Kyle Mcdonald who put some secret software on apple computers in the apple store to take photos of ppl sitting at the comp. If you google image 'kyle mcdonald' you can see some of the faces he took. Including this chick. He's being investigated by FBI for it lol

      • Fasteddy14

        Which part of the guy is she?

    Aussie Aussie Aussie – Oye Oye Oye…

    • Dr_StrangePants

      In South Korea, me and a handful of English speakers went out for some drinks. We lost one of our guys from Melbourne who went out to grab some street food.
      Before my friend from Brisbane pulled out his cellphone, i yelled out the "Aussie Aussie Aussie." 40ft away to the left of us our lost friend emerged in the middle of the street waving his Grilled Chicken-on-a-stick. I wasn't sure if Brisbane looked offended or wondered why HE didn't think of that.

    #10 is that a one armed alligator?

    • caleb

      Yes, his name is Brutus, 18ft in length (no shit, true story). A shark took his arm years ago. And Brutus is a crocodile, he spits on alligators.

    • Brewdy

      I want to see the beast big enough to have eaten that alligator's arm!

    • Raph

      i noticed that too, what the hell would have the balls to mess with that thing?

      • Dr_StrangePants

        a shark.

    • ssstoopid

      Holy crap! Did not notice that…

    • fatdog

      sure is. I think they call this one "Croczilla" from Northern Territory of Australia. It lost its paw – believe it or not – in fight with a shark.

      That would have to be one $^%#$$ mean shark!

      Something looks really weird with 'her' hips..Fake almost…?

      • its_forge

        I don't think. I dated a girlie with hips like that once. Very sexay but I imagine she'd look a bit odd after 45 or so when Bigbooty Syndrome hits. Which y'know, for most girls is a *good* thing. Mind you. = )

    • That guy

      The big one looks like J-Lo in the face. LOL!

  • Jak

    I would pick you up even if you were holding an ax. #1

  • Blumpkin
