defhomo: Haterz in the Harper Row tag can piss off back to Arkham. We don’t need yo kind around here. no1fuckinmesseswithmahsista. But seriously people, please don’t tag your hate, because I’m rather passionate about Harper, and I want her to be the sixth Robin, if they don’t bring Damian back. Thank you for reading this, and I hope soon that you learn not to tag your hate. The only thing...
Am I the only person
bothered that the most recent issue of Batman reads like Tim’s origin story? It sounds like Snyder’s pushing for Harper to become the next Robin, and I’m cool with that, but could you at least make her story feel less like a ripoff?

majingojira: I’m a skeptic by nature, have been for a while. I like to wait for the evidence to be in before I make judgments about something. I try and look at all the angles. Which is why doing something like this preemptive move makes me hope that in the end it will become unnecessary. I love being proven wrong and I hope to be regarding this. But, just in case… This is about the...
Oh my God.
uncleclustersthirdbrain: I just realized the day will come when the 2000’s teenagers will get into comics, and argue fiercely with you about how Tim wasn’t a Robin. They will call us stupid for thinking it, and that he was Red Robin. Oh my God, I can’t even handle this fucking realisation.

kg1507: I bought it. I read it. And guys, it really isn’t that bad. Tim was still trained by Batman. He was still part of his family. The only reason he chose to go by Red Robin instead of just “Robin” was out of respect for Jason. He was still Batman’s partner. Ok, so he never went by just “Robin.” But… NO YOU SHALL BE STONED AND BURNED LIKE THE BLASPHEMER YOU ARE! Seriously, though I...
To Kate/Clint shippers
I’m seeing a bunch of people who ship this starting to gloat over people squicked over the idea because the relationship would have been pedophilic and Tom Brevoort has said she’s college aged. Whatever, get your ship on, I don’t care. What has me pissed off about this is that not even a year ago Kate was sixteen years old in Marvel continuity. On top of that Kate stopped being...

Sokka banishes Aang and you realize Sokka was the Chief of the Southern Water Tribe after the men left to fight in the war.
Regarding personal communication down range.
The first thing you need to keep in mind is that for the most part, personal communication is a valuable commodity in Afghanistan. The country is vastly rural, far moreso than Iraq is. Due to this, depending on the area a soldier is in, they may not get the same things another soldier will have at another FOB. For example, large bases, such as Firebase Phoenix, Jalalabad, Bagram, and Kandahar...
Anonymous asked: My boyfriend will go deploying to Afghanistan within the year, I just want to know what communication is like. Letters, emails, calls/texts, video chats, etc? Do they get a phone or is it their own? As you can tell, I know nothing >.< Thank you for serving :)
Well, back in the good old U S of A
Stuck ina sort of quarantine state for the next week or more. Hopefully I’ll be out of it soon. But I’m out of Afghanistan. PS I’m in a four man room with my XO and he has a cute little butt. It’s distracting.
miffles-ruff-neck-scout asked: Saw your posts when searching under military categories. Think I'll follow. Good luck out there, and in a few more years I'm hoping to join the Air Force and eventually join Black Water there. Good luck mate. Im following for sure.
lovpink9211: I just did the one thing I told myself I wouldnt do…..Count the days left untill hes gone…..26 days….The one I love will be gone and I will be alone…..Im in tears and I want it to change but I know it wont, I cant change it. I hate the feeling of being alone, that I will be alone….I have no one to really compair how I feel, to be friend with, to tell me Ill be ok, that everything...
The majority of my unit is now getting ready to...
We’re currently in the biggest base in Afghanistan, prepping to leave. I remembered something vital as soon as the bulk of these guys started coming in: I hate my unit. Drama City, USA. Oh, how I didn’t miss you.

This deployment needs to be over.
I’ve been really sexually frustrated lately. I’m having wood pop whenever someone walks by, male or female, and it’s really not conducive to me doing my job out here, especially when I get so horny I just wanna rub against my rifle until I come. Yes, you’re reading this. Get over it. Now I’m in a huge, 150-man tent, and although I haqve a jack shack set up,...
It is cold. Like, unbelievably fucking cold right now. There’s no urban centers within a few hundred miles from where I am, and I’m at an elevation that exceeds several thousand feet. I’m from the desert, and to make things better, a desert CITY. A rather large one, with a nice, warm blanket of pollution over it. Global Warming, what’s taking so long?
pursuitofhappiinesss asked: i stumbled upon your blog and realized you're in the military, i just wanted to say that it is something amazing you do for all of us. i get emotional for some reason when i talk to someone in the military and it is because i have a lot of respect for you guys. i just wanted to say thanks...
And so it comes nearly to the close...
I have about a month or so before I start RIP, the process that will make sure that the incoming team is prepared for us to leave. It’s been a very enlightening, but overall boring year. I hope you guys were entertained. Any questions, just put them in the question box.
Reblog if you're bored and you want anons.

I don't often have stupid shit happen to me
But when it does….. So I no longer do my original mission out here. I work an X-Ray scanner that takes X-ray images of vehicles as they come in, in case I see something that’s not supposed to be coming in (IEDs, weapons, the enemy, etc). It’s a boring gig, but it’s the closest thing I have to going outside the wire, so I’ll take it. A few weeks ago, a taxi...
This needs to be done.
My FOB just keeps getting more and more awesome. Recently a midget got work here on the base. Coincidentally(?), one of the civilians shipped a human-sized hamster ball over here. Shortly after this happened, he found out about the midget. He now wants there to put the midget in the ball, take it to the flight line, and have two Kiowa Warrior helicopters play pong with the midget as the ball.
I really wished I was making this shit up. So, in ten days or so, the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy will officially be off the books in UCMJ. One of my team mates is gay (Something everyone knows but doesn’t really talk about). This morning, he came into our office and did a little twirl on the doorstep before throwing his hands into the air and exclaiming “I’m gay,...
I like to think I’m pretty masculine. I stay on my Ps and Qs, and can bullshit and PT with the best of them. Some days, however, the world just likes to prove how much of a dork I truly am. Hocus Pocus happened to be the movie of the day. I was getting into the movie, until this part came on. About three seconds into the song, I’m singing along with it, doing retarded hand gestures...
I’ve been starting to feel pretty lonely lately. I mean, lately I’ve been hanging out with more people than I usually would. My relationships with a few people have moved from friendly work environment to actual friends. I feel like I’m a part of something, but that’s not what’s getting me. If you haven’t guessed from previous posts because you’re stupid,...

I just stumbled across this article today. If you don’t like, you can kindly go fuck off. A lover of literature, Jeff always brings a collection of William Wordsworth. He flips the pages to “Expostulation and Reply.” He sits on the marble stone commemorating his son and reads aloud. Lori sits on the ground nearby. He gets to the last verse and chokes up: “Then ask...
What is this I don't even
So you always hear about the retarded shit soldiers do when bored. I haven’t run into anything beyond someone singing off key in the shower, or the wonderful game called “manhunt”. And no, I will not tell you what that is. Today I heard probably the best thing ever. I suffered a heat stroke about two years ago, and since then I’ve been susceptible to the maladies that...
I need advice.
So all of this started about a week or two ago. I came back from R&R to find out one of the soldiers in my team transferred to another FOB, and was replaced by this guy who was fucking up at a different one. The guy’s a weirdo, but that seems par for the course for my team at this point. Whatever. Anyway, since I’m this dude’s first line leader, Any problem people have...
In which I confess my lack of sex life
I have an active imagination, tumblr. Which has brought me to the conclusion that it’s better to be in a relationship overseas than it is to be single. If I was in a relationship, I wouldn’t be having these fantasies. Now, at first they were regular sex fantasies about random attractive people on the FOB. Now it’s progressed into full blown mental romances with anyone I find...
I need to remember this place exists.
Anyway, I got back from R&R in New York a week or two ago. I’m not gonna tell you what happened there, but suffice it to say it wasn’t happy happy funtiems. Since then, I found out that the insane soldier I was overlooking had been replaced— by an idiot savant. Where the other one’s insanity was on the violent, yet amusing spectrum, this guy is on the clueless and...
Things I'd rather not experience during my day but...
1. The feeling of fresh sand having settled on your body over night when you showered before you went to sleep. 2. Infantrymen razzing my Fobbit status when they’ve gone their entire deployment without leaving the FOB. 3. Finding pictures of my best friend in provocative poses nude on her hard drive. 4. Finding Afghani soldiers fucking in the porta potties every Thursday. 5. Being caught...
