Need Help With A Little Project

Thu Oct 28, 2004 9:29 am

Hey guys need some help with a bit of a project.

Preferably before Nov the 2nd. I would like to gain 561 additional postings on this glorious website Johan has created and successfully run in spite of us.

So what I need you all to do is band together and figure out some way to get me to post more over the next few days. Ask me questions, make comments for me to respond to whatever. I work this weekend so for the next four nights I will have up to 12 hours each to respond, assuming work is slow. Can be in this thread or any of the others on this site.

Keep me busy please.

And it case anybody is wondering.

I am formulating a special subject for a thread, but symbolicly I want to start it on the next even number in my total thread count, would add a bit to the message.

NO I AM NOT GOING TO TELL YOU NOW!!!

Thanks for the help guys.

L-188,

Over the years Alaska has voted for the Republican Presidential Candidate time and again. Why is Alaska such a Republican Enclave?

Thanks for the help Techrep

My take on it.

Well Alaska traditional has had economies based on resource extraction be it fishing, logging, mining, or currently oil. In the past 40 years the republicans have traditionally been more favorable to the reasonable exploitation of these resources for economic benfit.

The Democrates and the left however do tend to be beholden to enviromental interests. Both Clinton and to a much greater extent Carter in the late 1970's invoked wildland management policies that where decidedly negative to those industries that I mentioned that also employed a majority of the workers in this state.

You make enemies when you take away a persons ablity to feed their family.

Also nationwide you will notice that rural areas tend to be more conservative. Hard to argue that Alaska does not have large tracks of rural areas. I suspect that the fact that survival and success is more hands on in these areas has a lot to do with it. You actually have to plant your seed to get crops so to speak as opposed to going down to the soup kitcken.

Thanks only 560 odd left to go!

Well hi there, I am really curious about what you have to say, but you should also realize the fact that many users here do not like you, especially those with other political views, so after reading this post they may just as well do the opposite  Wink/being sarcastic

Anyway ! I have some nice suggestions/solutions to your little problem.

  • Answer to every thread in the "Polls and Prefs forum" (if you have not yet done that) or...

  • comment on every report in the "Trip reports" forum, people usually appreciate that - it should also take a while and bring you a lot closer to the magical 20k.

  • Start one of those silly word association threads and post frequently, Singapore_Air used to come up in the 300 post area (but you may not want to sink that low)

  • You can also start a thread asking all users who think you are a far-right-racist-psycho to sign with a post (that should generate quite a lot of them  Smile/happy/getting dizzy) and then you just reply to every one

  • Act like ScottysAir

  • Yeah and one more important thing to think of... DO NOT GET BANNED  Laugh out loud


  • Good luck !

    Sorry to skip over you SW733.

    The Meaning of Life is a very funny movie.

    Detals here.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085959/

    My personal favorite scene, when John Cleese teaches sex ed at one of those English boy schools. That looks like something from Harry Potter.

    Makes me wonder if that is what Superfly's school board canadate will do.

    It isn't a matter of America sucking...although I do note that I vote Alaska Independence Party which is a political party tasked for the sucession of Alaska from the US. But what it is a matter of is people claiming America Sucks to further their poltical ends.

    Hey guys, got to go to class now, but keep it comming.

    Nope not a chace USairwys757, Kerry's conduct after Nam, his stance on my gun rights (purely against) put the nails in his coffin.

    However there is some logic to your comments, a very unfavorable president might be able to drum up the anger for succession and Kerry fits the bill.

    Don't quite see enough comming from there though.

    I can sort of imagine it, but I guess you can't really get the feeling unless you're there.

    For me in North Dakota, the best thing is that I'm in a really good aviation school that actually has other subjects besides aviation. The worst part is everything else. I certainly won't be hanging around here after I'm done.

    Mir, I went to that school for two years myself.

    It was ok, but I had some issues with they way they where running the school. Of course this was in the 1990's hiring boom. But having my bill being run up everytime I got a flight instructor because my last one got hired was getting old.

    That and the highest thing on the dam campus was the bridge over the rail yard down by the gym. Real pilots have to dodge these little things called mountains and we have them in Alaska.

    L-188.

    How do you deal with the ridiculously perpetual night in the winter (save for an hour or 2 of brief sunlight)? I'd find that maddening.

    Regarding your membership with AKIP, do you consider yourself Alaskan before American? (I don't mean it in the way to sound bad!  Smile)

    Well I have lived in the south so got a bit more sun then that. But a lot of people do come down with SAD or Seasonally Affective Disorder and Vitamin D deficincies.

    I guess I am just used to it, not that it matters working nights.

    As far as the AKIP American/Alaskan issue.

    Mdsh00, there was a great quote from the movie Gods and Generals that I should put up verbatim for you. Just to set up the scene. A VMI instructor by the name Thomas Jackson had just been recruited and agreed to be a general in the Confederate Army in the US Civil War.

    Anyway in this scene is is about readly to leave VMI and the headmaster asks basicly the same question you just did of me. Jacksons answer, and I hope it is a real quote, the basis of which is that his loyalty Viginia, and to the United States as long as Virigina was pledged to it too.

    Like I said, I don't remember the exact quote from the movie, but I hope it is a real one, it was a good one.

    I'd be interested in hearing your preferences for the following (some might be predictable given where you live, but I'd like to know)

    Hot weather or cold weather ?

    Rain or snow ?

    Mountains or plains ?

    Trees or prairie ?

    Lake or ocean ?

    Island or continent ?

    Spring or fall ?

    This isn't a psych test, I don't even know which answers I'd give or what each possibility might indicate - just questions.

    Cold Weather...just a matter of putting on another layer of you get cold.

    Actually Rain, less work then snow.

    Mountains, spent two years in Grand Forks ND, Like I said earlier, the tallest thing in the town is the bridge over the railyard.

    Prarie. I grew up in the Aleutians where there are no trees...How can you see anything in a forest?

    Ocean....better seafood.

    Shoot a continent is just a really big island isn't is  Laugh out loud

    Spring, and that is in spite of the fact that fall is the start of hunting season (Yeah!!!) I still have an appreciation for the days warming.

    Considering the age of these rifles, wouldn´t they count as C&Rs?
    You´d need an import permit from your own government though, to get an export permit for the dealer from the German federal department of trade (Bundeswirtschaftministerium)

    Some Texans I know are still mad that Alaska became a state, thus reducing Texas to being only the second-largest state in the union.

    Wanna really get them upset? Start a movement to divide Alaska into two states, and thus make Texas only the THIRD largest state in the union!!

    You mentioned the Aleutians being warmer?!! Warmer than WHERE??!!!!

    Speaking of the Aleutians, some questions...

    Do AS still operate those rough-field kitted 737's ? With the gravel deflectors ?

    Did you have fly on a YS-11 with Reeve Aleutian ? One of the few non-Japanese airlines to buy them, I always wanted to travel on one, never got the chance.

    Yes they would but I haven't looked at the BATF list to confirm....once they get into the country. Getting them into the country would be the problem. I believe the BATF form 6 is the one to import and I understand that it can be a pain.

    AzoresLover....that is an old Joke and yes the Aleutians can be warmer, We ar just north of the Japanese Current.

    JGPH1A, By the time I worked there in 1994, they had been parked. As a Kid we always ended up flying on the Electras, so I never got a YS ride.

    It is a regret in my life  Sad
