View Full Version : Copperhead310th has died. (Call Sign CHANGE)



Copperhead310th
08-25-2007, 12:25 AM
And will be now known as Copperhead311th!

I'll be forming a new squadron over the next few weeks. The 311th Virtual Fighter Squadron 58th FG 5thAF. So i decided that a slight callsign change was in order. The basic reason for this is a parting of comapany between my self & my former squadron that i founded 6 yrs ago. While i hate to drop the colors my grandfather wore so proudly in Korea, it sadly is time for a change. I'll also post this in the Squadrons forum. I'm only posting it here because i have been here so long and have had that same callsign on these forums for over 6 yrs. (even dureing the year i was with jg27)
So "LIKE A MIGHTY PHOENIX RISING FROM THE ASHES" i will be reborn.

Best Regards,
311thCopperhead.

Good Night Topper, Where ever you are.

Copperhead, a very appreciated member of these forums was tragically deceased for real recently, and you just put your foot in it. Read the forums and mind things a bit before you make jokes like this, for many of us were really thinking 'Oh no, another one!' when we saw your post.

Now congratulations in your new squadron.

Yea, got my stomach starting to tie in knots reading the title of this thread. Not good. Instead of saying "has died", you should have said "has been reborn" or something.

I don't think or at least hope that there was ever any intention for bad taste,just bad timing.

1. Im 99.99 % sure he didnt know about resent tragic event.

2. Extremly bad timing due to 1 above.

3. If people would bother looking who the TOPICSTARTER is before opening the thread they would propably put 2 and 2 togheter in about 1 nanosecond and there would be no confusion.


Bad timing, thats all. If he didnt know, he didnt know..no need to spin it any further.

Bingo. Plus it was late and i was tired.
So i didn't know that someone had really passed. OPPS. Sorry if i freaked anyone out or came off as a troll. wasn't intended. and this was menat as a joke or a gag just as an informative post. and your all right. i could have should have worded it difertnly.

@ x6BL_Brando: at 3:00 am i couldn't spell the damn word. lol so shoot me. and everyone one here know's i couldn't type my way out of a wet papaer sack. so it causes me to mispell things.
And the whole phoenix line was a private stab at some one who will most likey see & read this.



@ Dux: i honestly didn't know.

@ Megile: Don't be an asshat. I left of my own accord. Indeed was asked to stay reapeatadly. After i left JG27...i had no plans. then i gave it some thought. Decided to go back to my old squad. turns out it's not the same place it was when i left. So...it was my choice. And if you have any doubt about it you can contact Diablo.
Other than that that's all i'll say.

@ Cuda: i agree 100%. which is why i'm not going into any of the details.

Lastly i'll edit the thread tittle. Sorry again if it was misleading. was not my intention just a very bad oversight on my part.

I don't think people are so sensitive as much as they're are looking for the chance to jump someone. That's the main reason I rarely post here anymore.

Cut the second 'a' out of "papaer" and crawl through the resulting hole? Now where's that gun...? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

But seriously - one of the most common human reactions to a disaster is to make a joke - I guess I was responding to that urge.

My own personal worst was getting a bit (way) too drunk on real ******ss at a wake for someone who I never knew, while I was living in Eire. At one point I found myself chatting up a very attractive brunette in a black dress. After a while I realised she seemed a bit uptight, and a cold silence was beginning to fall - but it wasn't until a mate rescued me (with a quick punch in the kidneys, iirc) that I discovered I'd been making a pass at the grieving widow http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif

I don't remember if the family took me outside for a good kicking - I was really drunk - but if they did, then I deserved it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

drunk man. lol
i have one of those my self. unfortunatly..i was stone cold sober.
About 10-12 years ago i was working as an electrican in the day & moonlighting pumping gas at a truck stop overnight. i needed the cash in a bad way with christmas comming up. So i got a chance to work a double shift the day beofor Thanksgiving since i was off for my day job i took it. Which paid time & 1/2 for hiliday pay plus overtime! Was around 2 am & i'm out on the fuel island freezing my nuts off when this new rig pulls up th the pump. Well, out hops this little blomde, about 5'2' maybe 100 ilbs. Long long hair, perfect c's for a rack, ice blue eyes and smiling from ear to ear. As she swung down from the tractor it took all i could do to keep my jaw from droping on the concreate.
She looked at me and said" hey there Sweetie. wanna filler up for me?"
"ummm Yes Mam."
"oh and be a dear & check the washer fliud. i gota hit the lil girls room."
as she walked away i was checking out the back in those tight jeans and noticed she was wearing a Leather Dart Transportation jacket (http://www.dartadvantage.com/index.htm) with thier logo on the back as she walked into the the building. the Truck was unmarked with no company name. So that told me she OWNED THE TRUCK not Dart. Cute and she's got her act togehter too. hmmmmm

So as i'm puping the fuel in the tanks & i feel a hand rest on my shoulder. I look over and there she is with a cup of coffe and she says" thought you could use some of this baby.
thanks. and it was 2 sugers & milk. perfect. how'd she know that?

Now with southern gilrs every one is Baby, Darlin, Sweetie ect. just thier way mostly.
Useing terms of enderment to stangers is just the norm.
So any way i washed her windows checked all 18 tires & wheels, ect etc. When i finnished she offerd to buy me breakfast. it was getting time for break any way. we went in ate and talked, i went back to work and she came out on the fuel island with me. She stayed out there for like 3 hours talking to me in the cold. and i was blown away. you know when it hits you it hits you. WOW.
So finally she said love i gotta go out to the truck and crash what time you leave in the morning i told her around 10 am. She leaned over and gave me apeck on the cheek and saunterd off to the parking lot.

Man i was so taken with her. to this day i cant describe it. So any way here the punch line.
Around 6 am my Manager Liz shows up to work the morning shift. So i'm in there st the fuel desk and i'm going on & on & on about this lil truck driver girl & how i thought i was in love on the spot. Never mind the guy standing next to me @ the fuel desk wearing the DART TRANSPORTATION Baseball cap. HE stands there listenting intently as i go on & on about this girl.
then Liz notices the guy, his hat and says...well hey you drive for dart...do you know who he's talking about?
He kinda looks at me as "yeah, well i rekon i do. She's my wife, the truck she's driving belongs to me and if he wants her that bad he can have her"

I have never been more embarresd in all my life.
i didnt say a word. i just kinda hung my head and walked outside to the fuel shack and sat there on my milk crates.

Turns out he owned 2 trucks and she was running 4 hours ahead of him cause he couldn't get a load @ thier last stop. BUT THE CHICK WASN"T WEARING A DAMN RING! & belive me i looked.

thats my worst moment ever.
and funy thing is...i still thank about that chick from time to time. Amazing.
