    Me

    I'm a fan of pointy things, as well as thing which go boom. I proudly own a sgain made by Chilli, and value his candor and insight. It's been a while since I've been posting, maybe I should reintroduce myself to the new folks around here as well. P.S. Chilli, some day I've got to tell you about pulling over 50+ 1%'s . I think I set a record in my jurisdiction. It could have gone real bad, real quick, but I ended it with a handshake and an understanding .
  2. I've not met a Scotsman, nor a descendent of one that could be TOLD to do anything, let alone how to wear his kilt! Good job telling him to bugger off!
  3. Happy Birthday, I hope it was spent enjoying family and friends!
  4. Sorry, I returned to work after a shoulder surgery and found it in my email. It immediately made me think of the brotherhood so I hurried over to post a link. I should have searched a bit.
  5. Check out this video! http://videos.511tactical.com/videos/151/Tactical-Duty-Kilt?keycode=Wemail_TacticalKiltMarch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoX7ZqaNPOQ&feature=youtube_gdata_player (for those without flash) I promptly filled out the uniform request, and sadly was denied...the Cheif was not in a joking mood. Booo! Apparently it was an April Fools email from a company that makes police uniforms, but due to popular demand they are going to make a limited run...Yeah!
  6. It was the one sunk during the filming of the movie U.S. Marshalls with Welsey Snipes and Tommy Lee Jones. It is at a location named Mermet Springs, IL, right across the river from Padukah KY. There are several things submerged there and a great dive destination.
  7. Megs pointed it out, could you move it to off topic please
  8. Here are some pics from my vacation this summer. Most are of Crissy, as I'm running the camera. Water Temp at depth is 47 degrees! BRRRRRRRRRRRR! In a submerged 727 at 60 feet. Crissy doing her impression of Tawny Kitean! (Whitesnake video...Oh well if you didn't get it your too young!) Here we are in the tram which goes to the top of the Gateway Arch in St. Louis.
  9. Yeah, that is how I understood it.
  10. OOps, thought I put it in Off Topic. Sorry. If you could move it I'd be grateful.
  11. I love this photo! It shows how resourceful, and adaptive the Highlanders were. Check out the mockisins (sp?) and the beaded pouches in addition to the tomahawk. It shows the Native American influence on those who came over here in the early days. Very Very cool!
  12. WOW! BABY BLING!!!!!!!!!! Now thats what I call accessorizing! Cool pics!
  13. Hello All, I've been popping in from time to time and scanning the most recent posts at the time. Honestly I don't have time for getting in depth, and catching up completely is laughable. However I like to stop by from time to time to see what is going on. I see there have been some changes As for me, it has been a busy summer. Crissy got scuba certified (which was a real chore getting a neurologist to sign off on the medical form), but in the end was worth the effort. We have gone on a few dives together, but then I blew my eardrum again and have been on the bench for the last few weeks. I completed my Rescue Diver certification, as well as a deep diver cert, which lets me go to 130 feet. I will log in on my other computer and post a photo or two of crissy in a submerged 727. We hope to go to the Mall of America this winter and dive in their aquariums (salt and fresh water), which should be a blast! I have not been able to ride as much as I would have liked, but am planning an Iron Butt ride in the next month. I am going to go for 1,000 miles in 24 hours. Wish me luck! So, please fill me in on the goings on with all of you. (moved from members forum, with deletions for general chat)
  14. KT, Glad to see the pouring project worked out. I love the look of the #1 pins. Are there any left, I never received mine from the special fund raiser we had a while back. Thanks, Bryan
  15. My wife and I flew to Edinburgh from London, and I picked up a Kilt Pin there. Since we were only there a few days we only had back packs (no checked baggage). The kilt pin in my pack showed up on the x-ray. One member of security (new guy) seemed to raise his hackles, but his superior promptly calmed him down and told him to get use to seeing those. She was very nice and asked to see it. Once making sure it was just what it appeared to be (it was a claymore style) she sent us on our way with a smile.
  16. Congratulations!!!!! That Chain Mail Standard is more awesome than the cast of Star Wars doing a Rock Opera!
  17. Kasey, Job well done! It's not that I condone violence, it just seems to have always worked for me. Stand your ground when you are in the right and that is just what you did, no shame brought onto the Brotherhood! Wish I could have been there to see it, and get your back!
  18. McLovin's For 25 year old organ donors from Hawaii! Sorry a ripoff from Superbad.
  19. Hello Everyone! I'm just dropping by to say hello. I know I've been away for awhile but wanted you guys to know I still think about you all. I've been very busy earning my rescue diver rating (Once I have my rescue diver class done {written test is complete} I'll hold a Master Scuba Diver rating and can begin my technical diving courses.) assembling statistics for a request to our City Commission for more officers, and supervising my cadre of officers. I'm also trying to decide what direction to go with grad school, and am taking care of two new yorkie puppies. Phew, the last few months have flown by. Sooooooo........... What have I missed? Please post links to the must read threads during the last few months! I hope everyone is doing well. Please fill me in on the new goings on. Cheers all! Bryan
  20. You know, The best compliment I have ever received was being told that I am comfortable in my own skin (being who I am). In a world where products are sold to change everyone... 1)too fat, we have a product for that 2) too skinny, we have a product for that 3) too pale, we have a product for that 4) too dark, we have a product for that 5 hair the wrong color, we have a product for that 6)different, we have products to help you conform 7)Too status quo, we have products to help you rebel ..and so on and so forth! The point is, in a world where everyone is trying to be something they are not it is the truly rare gem which is happy being what they are. You having self confidence enough to wear a kilt threatens those who do not think highly of themselves. They make fun of you to try to destroy your self image. In the end how you see yourself is the most important thing. On a side note: If you did a survey of successful leaders (no matter what the organization) you would find self confidence as a number one trait. Also, I bet if you did a survey of women and asked what it is they look for in a guy, you would find sense of humor and self confidence (not arrogance) fare above good looks and athletic ability. Keep Kilting!
  21. I'll try to take a picture in the next few days and post it.
  22. I purchased Guitar Hero Metallica yesterday, and decided to create my own character. To my surprise you can select a black Modern Kilt! We've Come a Long Way Baby!
