  • If I had a dollar for every time I needed to create something witty...

    ...Well, I guess I wouldn't be worried about creating witty content anymore -- I could pay people to laugh.

    Hello, everyone, just some ignorant dirt bag here. I managed to stumble across your site via a random google search and noticed you have an "Ask a Cop," and a "Writers Block," section. I spent quite some time perusing them, reading and learning, and then thought, "hey, these two sections seem useful, why not sign up and quit being a lurker."

    Being a pipeline control room operator, I have a lot of down time, and a lot of time spent mindlessly staring at the same computer screen for hours on end. It gets... boring. So, about a year ago I decided to put the two of those things together and do something productive with some of that time, and I decided to take up writing, which led me here.

    To try and fit in with everyone else a little bit, I'll go ahead and add the little tidbits of, my father was a Marine Corps drill instructor at Paris Island, and then a deputy sheriff of Beaufort, S.C. in the early '80s. To a small extent, I grew up with this life. Even though I chose a different route, I've had some interactions with several LEOs in the form of training exercises, which generally ended in some form or fashion with a member of one of the local SWAT teams saying something along the lines of, "Since we don't have much time left, we're going to forgo the boring interrogations and just pop a few rounds off then shove this gun barrel up your ***, see if we can't make you talk then." Not exactly my fault they gave me too much set-up time alone in the woods, and I knew they couldn't send dogs in to search for me.

    Anyway, hello again. Hope to get to chat with some of you soon. You know where you'll find me.
