    I am proud to be one of the few snipers (or maybe the only one :p ) who can claim that he shot an enemy spotlight.

    Nah, you proved me wrong the other day according your results posted from TechPowerUp. lol


    I would say I'm proud of building what was originally a $400 dollar car that now can beat brand new Corvettes in a race. I made over 364 RWHP and 480 RWTQ on a 100% bone stock engine with 200K miles that I got for free. My car is now showcased here:

    Also as of today I have the fastest AMD Super Pi 1M here at Guru3D. ;)

    When I was 14, living on a farm, I shot a jackrabbit (running) with a 22 rifle from ~50 yards - first time shooting...we ate him. Second time was the next year at a high school rifle range; six shots in the center black. Did I miss my calling? ;)

    wrong hands would be people who think in terms of can or can't instead of should or shouldn't. for example.... just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should.

    Three days? How long have you smoked? People become addicted to nicotine, the same as any other drug. Any time you quit a drug IE: alcohol, nicotine, caffein, etc., it has to be replaced with something > better diet, excersice, hobbies. How easy or difficult it is to stay off depends on how long you smoked for and how much you relied on it. Smoking is one of the greatest "Defense Mechanisms". I'm happy for you, but you need to be aware of the facts. :) It's very easy to backslide. I had a hell of a time putting away the booze! Once I finally did, it hasn't been a concern for 19 years. ;) I found that when I stopped counting my days of sobriety and decided that I would't drink "just for today"; that's when the booze didn't matter anymore.

    Around 3 years on 15 a day. The hardest part for me is kicking the actual habbit, not so much the dependancy of nicotine. If im honest I don't think I'm very dependant on it at all, it's just the act of smoking and the habit, times of day I usually smoke, after getting really stressed, first thing in the morning, last thing at night, chain-smoking when out on the town etc...

    I'm joining the RAF so I'm finally trying to get rid of them, plus I'm skint :D
