|LOST TRIBE, Wandering's ...: Recruting, thru the back door.|
18 comments8 Jun 2003 @ 11:57 by jmarc : Reminds me of a movie
made back in the late 70s or early 80s called the last starfighter(i think thats the name) where the main character plays a game at the local arcade which is a space fighting game.He finally turns the game over(beats it), and is soon visited by real space fighters who tell him that the game was just a recruiting tool. This is definitely happening with the military,but it is quite out in the open. After all the local national guard armory has a big banner advertising the game, hanging on the chain link fence around the facility...You can visit the website on it, but i don't know the url. Maybe the next time i drive by there i'll remember to jot it down.
8 Jun 2003 @ 14:25 by bushman : Yep :}
Seen that movie, was pretty cool. Glad Im too old to be recruted, lol.
9 Jun 2003 @ 19:11 by martha : well
I think I'll play my war games off line. thanks for the info bushman.
9 Jun 2003 @ 19:24 by bushman : Well
Being I'm 40 now, and I really stink at the games unless I'm working with a team, don't think I would be a prime choice for recrutment, but I would really like to get my hands on one of those babys, the amphibious model sounds like my cup of tea. :}
10 Jun 2003 @ 06:11 by martha : hey bushy
maybe vax can help you find one of those babys. Hear he use to be military. Maybe he already checked out your game playing ability. And I'm 53 and that doesn't stop me from beating mikey (nearly 14) at age of empires. No tanks though, just the old stuff.
10 Jun 2003 @ 09:02 by bushman : Educational value
Games like we play, and specialy age of empires have great educational value, in how efficiantly you use resources, and getting used to colateral damage, I need to learn war, so that I can understand its place, and hate to say it but war does have it's place. Those kids kick my butt, lol.
10 Jun 2003 @ 09:30 by martha : yeah
i enjoy the strategy stuff also. Mikey has had his butt kicked so much by me that he hasn't wanted to play lately. Maybe we'll switch to low tech for awhile-cards. hahaha (unfortunately he already knows i was born with a deck in my hands--darn)
10 Jun 2003 @ 11:20 by waalstraat : MM I'm surprised at you...
Don't you know you have to let the kids win one now and then...to keep them in there...so you can kick their little butts again...anyway that's how I did it with my little girl....
11 Jun 2003 @ 07:02 by martha : well i didn't do it
with my daughter and she is one terrific card player. She can even have a poker face, unlike her ma.
Nope, mikey has to learn that when he beats me at a game he has really won a victory!!! He did win the first game we played of Age of Empires.
11 Jun 2003 @ 07:58 by bushman : My girl
and I never played any games, she just wasn't intrested , ya, she liked mario brothers on nintendo, seemed that she liked the challenge of one being against imposable odds stuff. I took her on a climb when she was 4, C class climb, no ropes, she beat me to the top, lol. From that day forward, I never had to worry about her again.
11 Jun 2003 @ 08:47 by martha : Interesting bushman
Sounds like you have one fearless offspring. My daughter would never have done that climb. She was rather awkward in her growing years. Legs too long LOL
I started playing games with her very early. Can't help it. In the blood. hahahaha
11 Jun 2003 @ 20:21 by bushman : Ya, lol.
Shes more nuts than me, I wasn't happy with her at all for climbing up there, lol, I had told her to hang out at the bottom in case I fell to my death and didn't die, lol. I'm up about 300ft, and I hear, HEY STOP THAT KID, I'm thinking he thinks I'm a kid, so I look down and here's my kid like 10ft behind me, lol. She says, please get out of my way old man, like it was a walk in the park to her, lol. Crawled between my legs and past me. I will never get in her way again, lol. You can go and climb there or just check out the waterfall at least MM, it's in the Eaton Canyon park, right there in Pasadena, the climb is called Razorback Ridge, just before you get to the falls. Theres 3 waterfalls all together, but the first one is the best. You basicly have to climb razorback to get to the other 2 falls. Theres some more secrets, in Pasadena, and most of them are within walking distance if your in the bungalow haven. :}
12 Jun 2003 @ 19:03 by bushman : Found her.
She got married, lol. Not Bonnie chrystal, it's Bonnie Ramthun. Here's her web site, she was the queen war gamer for the millitary.
13 Jun 2003 @ 00:40 by congo_joe : Off topic much?
this entire topic has shifted from backdoor military recruiting through video games to How bushy gets beat out by his four year old daughter going on a climb... Well it sounds like the old guys alright. Dagnabbit! do you know how long I've been lost!? and that other dang website states that yer all still on Livve... so there I was showing up for the chats on friday for like five months wondering where everyone was. Chances are you've forgotten me by now too Bush (unless you have a memory like a sponge) I've been going mad whenever I see something or read something because I think to myself " Bush and the others would get a kick outa this". But to make a long story short.. or a short story long.. not sure which I'm doing. I'm back people, and ready to toss a wrench into the proverbial gears again with my maniacle theories and banter. Oh and great post about the recruitment, I've heard a few instances of that and I've even noticed a few "AI glitches" that those facts would certainly help explain. Like enemy grunts snipering me with a machine gun from outside the AI perception range in Medal of Honor Allied assault... Just not a feasable abnornmality in the game structure. The Browning Automatic Rifle has never been known to hit a man in the head at modern day sniper distances. I say reinstitute the draft or use us as cannon fodder (sarcasm there boys and girls) but do not.. I repeat DO NOT screw with my high score!
P.S. It makes sense that I'd find you and come back on friday the 13th...
13 Jun 2003 @ 07:44 by bushman : lol
Joe !!! where have you been, ya, my main goal in life, is finding those tributaries that do feed the main topic, and if you look deeply into the off topic stuff it is on topic, like we know the kids are advanced and awake and so does the millitary. :} I thought you were in jail, I even had a few people out looking for you. Yes the world needs you man, lol. My ICQ number is 6217837, It's great to see you again :}
8 Oct 2003 @ 20:24 by med @18.104.22.168 : want to be in military service

8 Apr 2004 @ 08:37 by bushman : C&C on N64
Well I have to say, C&C on N64 is a pain in the butt, I cant even get past the first level, because the cursor action is too slow and inaccurate. Probably due to haveing played the pc version for so long, lol.
