View Full Version : A BRAC is coming

Well, looks like my hometown just went up a notch on the military's happy towns list. Redstone was selected as the center to be the host of the DoD Anti-Missile programs. It's probably due to our megawatt lasers (I just like the sound of that), but it is a pain, as Army is now taking back a considerable amount of buildings it rents to NASA (Marshall Space Flight Center is located on Redstone). So a lot more bumping and territory fights going on as various departments fight for somewhere to work while the Army pours in another 12K or so jobs from around the country.

We got hit in every BRAC round since the end of the cold war so no complaining from you. At least in the last round of closures we only had to consolidate two small facilities into one of the larger facilities in the region.

On the bright side a LOT of the work I do for my employer deals with closed bases. In fact the western BRAC office is across the freeway from my office and a whole lot of people know me on a first name basis there. We do that much work for them. With luck I might be working on a contract in Redstone one day. :coolgrin:

Grab some balls, Qaj.

Strip paintball bars would be ideal.

you didn't see that?

it is in Nevada

you pay to hunt the girls.. I think you get to fuck the one you hit

Oerdin, I wasn't complaining. BRAC has been good to the Rocket City, overall. This is just a copy cat thread with an "Original Post".

Japher, we have several of both already. Apparently, that's been a profitable idea repeatily.

NYE, :brwncard:

Bah, BRAC. They've left us so undefended up here that our only hope of fending off a Canadian invasion is to call for assistance from the Danes.

23-03-2006, 21:08:06
No problem - we have a couple of spare longboats we can send.

23-03-2006, 21:14:41
Cool. Send 'em to Bath so we can upgrade them to aegis longboats and then we'll park 'em in the St. John.

Why would we need to defend against Canada? Canada is just the northern territory of the Americans. At least until expansion 8, when they finally introduce a Canadian civilization.

Shouldn't Canada do that first?

You pussies wouldn't know what civilisation is 'til you've clubbed a seal. Smaller ones are best. They make a better splat as their skulls are less able to contain the goo.

Oh, and then you'll have to eat an Eskimo head, or something.

So there!

I wonder why you never get protestors in cIV about harvesting a seal square?

24-03-2006, 19:22:34
There are no seal squares?

I think the fur are supposed to be beaver.

24-03-2006, 19:27:36
Beaver hunting. Yes, I can see why that would never get protested.

Dammit! I want cute little seal squares that my people can go out and club! Bring back all that fine white baby seal skin! Luxury trade good! Make my people happy! And they can eat the meat, improving their health!

Bastards. How could they miss that? Bet its in the expansion.

25-03-2006, 06:32:59
It would be the next best thing to getting Canada in as a civ.

Seals on a tile.

Once every so often a man strides out, beats one over the head and then drags it off.

It would be great!

I think annexing Canada would be a bad idea. When Apple took over NeXT (or is that nEXt?), they got Steve Jobs back. Canadians wouldn't accept the degenerates in the US Congress, and the Washington establishment who have spent the last 5 years trashing the President would see their business dry up with the arrival of Harper who AFAIK is made of teflon. In addition, Denmark would declare war straightaway.
