cirby: beantowndog:Just remember that next time some random douche tells you that Stolen Valor is harmless lies that don't hurt anyone.Just remember that they're right?Not really.One of the interesting things you run into when you read up on the various "real" Stolen Valor cases is that the people who get caught are mostly using their faked military records to pull off other scams. Very few are the "innocent braggart" types - almost all of the ones who get prosecuted are in the middle of some other crime when they get nabbed.It's funny, though: the folks who see no problem with someone lying about their military record are almost always the same folks who hate the military in the first place. That's why so many of the "big" Stolen Valor cases involve groups like VVAW or IVAW. They use the fake "veteran" to spout anti-military propaganda, but then pretend it's no big deal when their guys get caught.

He's a con man, the show just emphasized this point and got suckered.When you died the first time, how many of your brain cells didn't come back?
dittybopper: demaL-demaL-yeH: Touch that knob and you'll be wearing condiments.Heh. Did you ever work with the old Haseltine racks? The ones that you could get behind without being seen, open up the back, reach your arm up under the CRT, and with one deft move, open up the door on the front where the screen adjustment controls were, scaring the living bejesus out of the operator?/Too young for a KSR bomb.//Still had them at Devens, though.
