waterboarding, torture; methinks not
I attended the USAFA towards the end of Viet Nam. During Beast (BCT) cadets were subjected to waterboarding. The idea was to increase an airman's ability to resist torture once captured. It scared the hell out of me, but it did no permanant damage, and it certainly wasn't life threatening. On the other hand, if it was performed on a person with compromised health, it could very well be injurious.(I do have first hand experience with life and death conditions as I served as a combat medic prior to attending the Hill, and was severely wounded.) I find it curious (but typical) that the people talking the loudest about this issue are the least informed.
on the other hand...
Otto, everyone knows that for reliability, you need to use Ryder, not U-Haul...Ryder is the rental truck choice of terrorists (domestic and foreign) who wish to make a bang up impression. As for drugs online, just look towards your email There are hundreds, no, thousands of friendly vendors of what ever your heart (or groin) desires. Keep smiling!
Cheers, a pint and day at Wrigley for you,
Is that all there is?
WTF? The world's biggest group of former boozers and chain-smokers now sit on high and pass judgement on what qualifies as the best drug for abuse? And all they can come up with is this pitiful list....What have they been doing with all that research money??? We want better drugs! We need something as easy to use (and abuse) as booze but with the kick of Special K mixed with H! Now that would be an major medical accomplishment!
Your tax dollars at work!
In the history of government spending, I can recall no finer use of tax dollars than the study and perfection of beer.Give the good Doctor of Beerology the keys to the treasury! Finally something good comes from the halls of academia!
it used to be that malaria was grounds for lifetime prohibition, but it seems the rules have been eased, only excluding those who have had a re-occurrence in the past twelve months...in addition, the exclusion of US military members deployed to Iraq and/or Afghanistan is probably due to their exposure to malaria, hepatitis, STD's and various other communicable diseases
