View Full Version : The hardest part of a mission

In this mission I launched from the Lexington about ten miles west of Okinawa, my F4U1C was packing a 1000 pound bomb. I was sent to attack a convoy of vehicles reported to be heading north on a dirt road north of Itoman.
As I approached the coast I spotted the town and as I came closer I saw the trail of dust being kicked up by the moving trucks.
I moved in at 4000 feet with the sun to my back. There was no AAA and the sky was clear and blue.
Just then; as I was getting set up for my attack, I heard an ominous sound:
"Honey, can you watch the baby while I take a shower?"
Then, minutes later, under extreme duress and after nearly blacking out, I found myself alone, and eye-to-eye, with a nasty crappy diaper. My eyes began to water as I shuddered and I could only barely recall hitting the pause button. My poor helpless F4U1C was frozen helplessly, in the blue sky in the room down the hall, frozen in space and time, wondering when it's poor unfortunate butt-wiping pilot would return; if ever, if he did indeed survive at all.
The bright sun shined from my six(through the window) as I worked as quickly as possible, jigging and jiving, and trying not to gag.
But I got it done, and I was soon back down the hall and free to resume my mission. I was back at it, my unfrozen F4U1C was flying again and ready to bomb the hell out of something.
I wiped the sweat from my forehead: "Whew, that was a close call."
War is hell, virtual war that is.

But just think about it! In 5 to 10 years from now you'll have your own wingman/woman to do co-op missions with! A wing wingman that listens to all your advice and thinks your the "BEST" Pilot in the world!

A wing man you can use as an excuse for all the forseeable hardware upgrades! You can't let the youth of the 21st century grow up technologically deprived, now can you! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Of course they need ADSL-2 for primary school! And a gigabit lan linking the PC's in your house! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hey if we get 5-10 years out of Bob then the only thing you need to dread is the day they become better at flying than your are! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

What a wuss.

It's your child you're talking about here, in need of an absolutely necessary cleaning and diaper change that cannot be put off. I did it for my younger siblings, nieces, nephews, girlfriends' kids and then my own sons without squeamishness, and you can be a real man and do it too (and then wash your hands thoroughly). Wait 'til he cuts himself badly or breaks a bone--are you going to take care of business first, and wait 'til he's safe before you get all squishy, or are you going to fumble the ball?

How you take care of your kids determines how they will treat you; 50 years from now, that baby will be changing YOUR diaper, or picking out the retirement home where you will live out your 'Golden Years.' What if he picks the one without broadband access? He may not consciously remember that chronic case of diaper rash, but are you willing to take that chance?

Corsairs are rugged. They can handle any amount of hovering in 'Pause.' Real life is more fragile, and it doesn't have a 'Pause' key.

Yes, it was meant to be humorous, I have no problem changing diapers. And as far as that other reply about war being hell; I know. I am retired military with 20 years active duty in the U.S. Army and I have a couple of wars under my belt so... Man I just KNEW that post would make SOMEBODY angry somehow. I can't believe it.

So was mine. I had two brothers-in-law that were the biggest prisses around when it came to changing diapers though, and it just irked the hell out of me when they pulled that act. It's a learned behavior, like the macho poses they hid behind when they weren't scurrying away from the smell of a little baby poo.

I'm sure that it's only a coincidence that their kids have turned into obnoxious little sh!ts...

C'mon morris, ya gotta set a better example. It's not like emptying the diaper pail (back in my day, we didn't have the disposable diapers with absorbant gels. No-o-o-o-o, we had to use cloth diapers, and we couldn't put used diapers in the hamper with regular clothes, so we'd rinse them out in the toilet first and then put them into a sealed pail so the the stuff could ferment for a while before attempting to wash it...now, THAT was something to be afraid of). Younger guys are reading this, and learning the inappropriate behaviors that can affect generations yet unborn.

Buck up, man! You have to be strong for them.

Here is my favorite M2Morris post, saved forever in my favorite threads:

"I want to know why when I go out and fight against the enemy that when I play-back the track I don't get to see the enemy burning and screaming to death with thier skin peeling away in a horrible ear-drum shattering screeching death cry as they plummet toward a watery grave which death has chosen for them. Then, after all the death and destruction I have so painlessly unleashed toward these unfortunate foes, I screw-up my carrer landing because of damage or some other excuse and I am forced to burn in the cockpit, and while my face melts away from my skull I watch a halucination of some heroic comrads jumping onto the damaged hulk with fire extinguishers in a brave attempt to save me and maybe drag my smoldering body from the plane, and later I wake-up to pretty nurses in white uniforms, and they are asking me if I need anything, like maybe ice cream or asparin or a 38 revolver, as I lay in my hospital bed, fading in and out of conciousness and working toward my next major goal, which may be to just hit the fly-again button, or just ask for more morphine.

But other than that, this is a good sim and I really like it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif"

Hey Morris, you know you're not a real man until you carry the diaper bag, bottle bag,and about four million other bags (including your wifes purse,) and push the stroller while in the mall <ggg.> It's actually kinda' funny though, you meet alot of women that way. All the bloody best, LongHorn
