    Bah, there's no such thing as society. Only individuals and their families. :p

    Anyway, back to the important thing: Doctor Who.

    I'd totally forgotten about this snippet from the X-Mas special: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=L4gK707z_ME&feature=related

    Priceless. *Sigh* I'm looking forward to the 11th Doctor's tenure... but I'm seriously going to miss Tennant, too. (Luckily, I think he's the sort of bloke who'd *definitely* be up for teaming up with 11 in a couple of specials here and there. :D)

    Well, in case any of you don't know (I think I already told the IRC people this), but I joined up with the [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Air_Patrol]Civil Air Patrol[/link] back in November. I bring this up because I just got promoted!:D

    It was actually kinda scary; we were in closing formation, where the squadron commander addresses us and hands out promotions, citations and such, and I hear, "cadet [insert my last name here], report in to the Major." I was actually shaking as I fell out and walked up. I saluted, did the whole reporting thing that my flight sergeant taught me, and the Major salutes me back, smiles, and congratulates me on my promotion. I was smiling all the way back home.

    So, I'm an Airman now. It's basically like getting promoted from the first grade of Private to the second, but now that I've got the ball rolling, I'll have Sergeant's chevrons before the year is out.[face_cowboy]

    Congratulations, Bly.

    While reading that post, I had weird "Congratulations! You have leveled up!" images flashing through my mind. :p

    Actually, I'm more interested in the ground aspect of things; not much flying to do in the Army.:p

    EDIT: And thank you, LI. Funnily enough, I did have visions of the "YOU HAVE BEEN PROMOTED" message from Call of Duty 4's multiplayer going through my head.

    Damn, youtube had the episodes that commander was in a year ago. I couldn't find any last night. You would have a seen a green Vader in all but name. But that's him in the pic.

    Katana, I've seen that vid before. I did my best to forget it. Those pranksters had no right to make fun of us. The Weeping Angels take them!

    Bly, I'd say "congratulations," but everyone else is doing that, and I'm a rebel. So instead, I'm gonna shake up the status quo and just think it instead.

    The Chasers were good before they became popular. Now that everyone simply adores them, I find them to be utterly abhorrent. :p

    What do you get when you put together identical twins, one an evil mastermind and the other a childish fool, have them switch places, and interrupt the evil twin's attempt to seduce and murder the good twin's love interest with a POed demon girlfriend, the good twin's escape from prison, and the evil twin's mentally deficient half-troll lackey?
