Took a glance at 4chan and reddit to see what was new and I just got a confirmation:

The internet is fucking retarded

One of them was wearing a golf hat, so they're clearly Scottish Separatist terrorists.

What I understand from older women he was considered handsome back in the 50's and 60's but now, probably not so much. :D


After Truman and Eisenhower, and running against Nixon, he was downright dashing. :)

That said, it seems poor form (myself included) to be derailing a thread about such a tragedy.

If JFK isn't handsome, I shouldn't be allowed in public.

Nixon is one of the ugly Border types. Lyle Lovett is a handsome devil in comparison.

Considering the nature of these forums most of the time, I'd say that 30 pages of(mostly) on topic is pretty good.

Well, one eventually has to move on. There's been enough anger, angst, and churn here.

Since I don't think JFK is handsome, I think I would not mind being seen with you in public. I have a weird taste ;-)

The only thread that stays on topic around here is the CKA Hotties of the Day.....

Considering past tragedies discussed on this site that went political from the first post, or close to it, I think it went rather well. Batsy did throw a curveball like 15 pages back though

From my email and posted around the web with today's date:

$1:
An improvised explosive device is meant to disrupt as well as kill and maim. This is a central element to guerrilla warfare tactics used by terrorists worldwide. The idea is that the device will not only cause physical harm but also incite fear, which will lead to chaos and more fear.

In combat, when a device explodes and is followed by a rocket-propelled grenade or mortar fire, it is hard to gather yourself and decide on your next action. In the Marine Corps, you are trained again and again to overcome this confusion. Repetition and muscle memory, the trainers hope, will help create instincts that guide a Marine through chaotic, violent moments.

Part of our training involves learning about Gunnery Sgt. Dan Daly, a two-time Medal of Honor recipient who in 1918, at the Battle of Belleau Wood during World War I, urged his men forward during an assault on German positions with the words: “Do you want to live forever?” Marines take that story to heart. It is part of our tradition, part of what it means to be a Marine.

I would repeat his words, in a less sanitized way, to inspire my squad before each patrol. It always brought a smile to their faces before we stepped into harm’s way. A version of Sergeant Daly’s quote lives on as the title of the Marine Corps’ current recruiting campaign: “Toward the Sounds of Chaos.” The phrase comes naturally to us.

Yet last Monday, I saw something more jaw-dropping than the tragedy at the Boston Marathon itself: people, many of them civilians, running toward the chaos. I saw police officers, marathon runners, race volunteers and even bystanders who did not flee, but moved toward the bomb blasts, without regard for their own safety, trying to provide assistance to the injured.

Mr. Rogers was a staple of my childhood. A quote of his sticks with me today. “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news,” he said, “my mother would say to me: ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’”

For too long now, America has been polarized on issues ranging from gun control to school lunches. Last week, I saw people from every walk of life, undoubtedly of differing political opinions and religious beliefs, run toward the chaos. We will and should never forget this day. But we should also remember that even when we as a country get knocked down, we get up and run toward the chaos.

Zachary Edward Bell served with the First Battalion, Sixth Marines, from 2007 to 2011 as a rifleman, participating in two deployments to Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He lives in Tennessee with his wife and two children, works for a nonprofit veterans organization and plans to attend college in the fall to study clinical psychology.

That was truly a defining moment, one that should be remembered amidst everything else, and much more than anything concerning the bombers. These people, through their selfless reactions, quite rightly engendered a feeling of national pride

Agreed. It warms one's heart and gives one hope that maybe we could some day overcome this endless strife.
