Finius

The happy thread!

763 posts in this topic

We've got an angry thread, so I thought, I know. We need to equal out this negativity, and have a happy thread too!

 

This thread is for those of us, who are just a little bit happy.

 

Let us discuss what is, or generally produces happiness within thee.

 

Now, I don't have an epic tale of man versus printer for you in this thread, because to be honest, I haven't forgiven my printer enough to attempt to triumph over it yet, so there's no happy ending there. But fear not, loyal forum members, for, I will tell you some things that make Finius happy. We will then discuss these things, and also things that make you happy too.

 

Here are the top five things that are making me happy right now:

 

1. I'm going to have enough money from my extra week of summer work to be able to buy an L85 as my secondary AEG, as opposed to buying something I don't really want.

 

2. Fruit smoothies. My awesome diet of winning strictly forbids most tasty things. It does however allow fruit, fruit juice and blenders (the use of, not eating. PLEASE DO NOT EAT YOUR BLENDER).

 

3. I beat the rain home from work. I cycle to and from work (9 miles each way), and today, it started throwing it down with rain literally seconds after I stepped through the front door. Suck on it nature, I'm faster than you.

 

4. As well as earning enough from my summer job for my L85, there is around a 90% chance I will be able to afford to book tickets to Berget 10. One cannot possible exude in mere words the sheer winnery contained within this knowledge.

 

5. It's Friday. And that means I can stay in bed as long as I want tomorrow morning. It also means I can mock Rebecca Black.

 

Thanks things, you're doing a good job :)

 

What makes you happy? :D

I'm like Dr Cox. I have no real 'happy' mode.

 

Appart from when I'm being sarcastic and bitter in conversations, that's when I'm happy.

Or mowing down entire squads whilst using my LSW. That makes me happy. Very happy. Oh so joyously happy!

 

Also, my first driving lesson in ages today. That was fun, my teacher is a former soldier, obviously had lots to talk about.

Working with an ex recon Grenadier Guard at work atm, having some good conversations about awesome military hardware, that was making me happy earlier.

 

(He was telling me about how they used to drill FFE; they'd have nine barrels, fire 20 rounds each before the first shell hit the floor (180 rounds in the air on the way to target), the resultant fireworks must have been something).

Lucky git...

 

I also enjoy talking with former service personel, some of the stuff they did...

During my work experience with my dad, I met one of his work mates, a former major, who served from 1968-ish to 1995 (he ended as a major obviously). His stories from Germany, and the numerous exchange operations with Americans were hilarious - he and an American unit during the 70s exchanged kit - one of the yanks started crying because the SLR's recoil was so strong in comparison to the M16. Tanks getting lost is another highlight - one one occasion a unit parked on a bog without knowing it, and found most of their tanks up to their turrets in mud.

 

Something that's making me laugh at the moment - thinking about the idea of a god existing for Atheism. Would it become weaker when someone worships it?

Don't know why but it always puts a smile on my face if you're out and hear a song on the radio or in a shop etc that you love, especially if it's something 'rare'.

Was around 76 or 78 I think. He said i had passed then said the score in a kind of "passing way", like the figure itself doesnt matter once you are over 60.

 

I didnt feel i did well either. He said the key was speed, not accuracy, so on a few I should of got right i just pressed as fast as i could.
