Five things Jack keeps in his tac vest on every mission.

1. breath mints. you'd be surprised at how many cultures are offended by bad breath.
2. a star trek coin he considers lucky
3. a lock of hair from his son's first haircut
4. duct tape. it has so many uses
5. a satellite picture of earth. it might seem hokey, but when things get really rough it helps to remember what you're fighting for.

defending anonymous

i might have mentioned her that i lurk at a blogging community called live journal. like here you can comment as anonymous. but lately several of the blogs i read have disabled that comment setting. presumably they had trouble with people making stupid or nasty comments. it's their prerogative of course, but not every anonymous is a bad one.
this one LJ i read stopped anonymous comments after i disagreed with some posts & had the option of getting a text message whenever someone commented. well any post could get anywhere from 1-100 comments. so if you'er stupid enough to have that option, you could get burned. i was so pissed that i stopped reading that one.
i admit i was tempted to get a LJ account, but i have this blog that no one reads. plus, you can only have 5 avatars for a free account (here you can put one is as a picture) there's the whole "friending" thing & all the drama every time the LJ powers that be make a decision.
so i think that everyone should do like i do, screen all comments. and if you don't have time to look through them all, just screen the anonymous ones.

five things #64

Five things Cam and Daniel have in common (besides a "limited gene pool" as Vala put it).

1. they both want to write a novel. daniel is thinking of some kind of cross between indiana jones & star trek. mitchell is thinking of some kind of adventure with bomber pilots during WW2.

2. they never had a "type" of woman that they went for. redheads, brunettes, it didn't matter. they always looked for similar interests, a good sense of humor & an IQ in the triple digits.

3. neither one really cared for desserts, beyond an occasional cup of jello.

4. each considered dropping out of high school. daniel because he was being bullied, mitchell because he wanted to get on with his life. both were talked out of it by their favorite teacher.

5. they both have a subscription to national geographic, but for different reasons.
