    I 'm having difficulty determining which would be the better answer. I think I'll just go with screaming aye aye sir for a while until I die from push ups.

    I still have the teddy-bear I got when I was born. My son still has the giant alligator, Krokky, that he won at 4. It's kind of a backrest now, at 17. :D

    I've got a giant pikachu pillow that I got when I was 5. He went to college with me and is in my new apartment on the couch with me right now.
    Lol, my dog likes to sleep on him. I don't think I like that, but at least she respects him enough not to try to destroy him lol

    I'm old enough to remember when a local bar had 'dime beer' nights - 12 ounces of beer in a Solo cup for ten cents.

    Send your cousin a box of candy. They will make your cousin eat the entire thing in front of 60 other boots in two minutes and then exercise them for the next two hours. I would suggest Haribo gummies so the floor can be rainbow colored. :)

    Which boot camp? If it's the Marines, he'll be traumatized anyways. He may be ordered to scream "knowledge" at the bear for inordinate amounts of time as well. Boot camp is some fun times. Funniest place you can't laugh at.

    He'll be just fine in boot camp. Navy is easy day, with little worry. Good for him.

    I would never want to be stationed on a ship though...

    Or Sean Connery. Remember, Mark Harmon learned how to detectivate from James Bond at the Presidio.

    Even Gibbs wasn't tough enough to kick someone's ass with one thumb though.

    I confess, I still love VTM and vampires, despite what recent literature and pop culture has done to them. I still feel like there is a market for a genuine, serious and respectful fiction in the genre. In much the same way as I believe video game movies can be great or that Anime/Manga also could make great movies. Culture has a defeatist attitude towards something after it fails once. Writing has taught me that failing once isn't only natural; it is required.

    I once put up an auction on a game for a rather worthless item and created an interesting description for it. Created a thread on the game's forum about the auction, criticising it and calling out the creator(an alias of mine) of the auction as a potential scammer. Thread generated publicity for the auction which resulted in a couple of thousand percentage profit for me.

    Justice, says I. Please write a detailed story about it. Consider it sold. Do you need an advance? :D

    Once went into major surgery when I was 13, and, out of nervousness, my father muttered out a line from Henry V to calm me down. The nurse had just delivered a dose of...I think something called Versed? Ironic name, I guess. So I began reciting the entire play, starting with, I believe, scene II, when Henry addresses the Lord of Canterbury, whilst intermittently kissing my IV port.

    The nurse was really taken aback. Dad doesn't shirk at telling it to anyone who will listen. I'm always grateful and not embarrassed at all. Cause quoting Shakespeare at length is what cool people do, right? Yeah, all day. That's what I thought. *sigh*

    I don't do well in surgery. I apparently kept trying to sit up and tell the surgeons about the state of Bardolph's nose.
