    Arctic Oil

    A couple articles describing a US Geological Survey stating theres alot of "undiscovered technically recoverable oil" in the arctic.  Perhaps not big news in itself, but the survey maps suggest massive areas of resource and implied international interest.  Interesting data...

    Star Trek XI

    Get ready folks, Star Trek XI is coming. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0796366/ Difficult to picture Matt Damon as Kirk.  Think of Damon on the bridge. A call comes in.  Instead of saying, 'Kirk here", he'll say something ztupid like, "I'm Matt Damon".

    Wheres my platoon CFLRS?

    I had a hard time figuring out where to put this post. Might have been better in Recruiting as it has a bearing in people visiting the CFLRS site. I have a mild complaint. The designers of the CFLRS site have not updated the Graduations list since the Fall of 2003. It is kinda cool to see...
