    Yes, today is my 23rd birthday. Coincidentally, it also marks my 5 year anniversary in the army, and 6 days from now I will have been a member here for 4 years. Where has the time gone?

    Yay. You're a year closer to baldness, prostate cancer, memory loss, arthritis, and to again needing diapers and being spoon fed. I hope you're happy.

    Well aren't we quite the cynic?

    Congratulations Japes.

    As long as I remain a muscle-bound HERO OF LEGEND like the Barbarian in Diablo 3, I could live with that.

    However...

    As soon as I feel I can no longer take care of my daily needs, I intend to die GTA style, going for the full bar of stars.

    Oh, and congrats Japes. Japes the VETERAN.

    It will be quite difficult to go on a murderous rampage when you can't even shamble to the bathroom.

    Well, the idea is that I go on the rampage when I still have enough strength left in me to walk or even hobble quickly. Also, I imagine I should be using a car during most of the carnage, likely to the bittersweet end.

    I mean, how much physical power does a drive-by with an uzi really require?

    Of course, there is also the possibility that they have power armour in the future I'll die in.

    Congrats, Jungle Japes, another year on this shitball planet over and done with. Don't forget to shoot for the groin next time they send you out to do 'crowd control'.

    Nah, just pointing out the positive side of getting older. Other benefits include being allowed to sit on a porch and yell at strangers, the ability to pinch young girls asses without fear of a restraining order and a lawsuit, drive vehicles through store fronts without serious legal repercussions, "forgetting" birthdays and anniversaries of people you never really cared about, and the best part: the ability to beat the shit out of little bastards with a stick and call it "teaching children to respect their elders".

    Happy Birthday and Aniversary, Japes.
    Many returns of both for you.
    You've done the 5.
    Might as well toss in the other 15 for retirement.

    Haha. NO. Uncle Sam gets 3 more years, then it's time to move on.

    Happy birthday, Japes. May I recommend celebrating your special day by humping a goat?

    Ummm... Yeah I'd love to, but I already spent the day at the lake, learning how to wake board. So I'm pretty much spent.

    Wakeboarding, eh? Reminds me of that bloke that stuck his kids on the back of a ski do and told them he was taking it all the way from pegs beach to Stanley (That's a long fucking way in the wind and rain, by the way. Think having ski-do around a dormant volcano). Ignorant bastard.

    Congrats on making 23, though.

    Nice job, but remember, you've only got another decade of prime time.

    I really miss the old days of stealing everything that wasn't nailed down from the Army.

    Happy Birthday you renegade maverick.

    I think we need to coordinate this, old gent. Get the group of us together, and go out dressed in tuxedo's with tommy guns.
