    Seem's he has buried a 40 ft. con-x building with no less than 4 exit's (tunnel's)
    5 digit's of stored ammo...
    Old Jeep and 1970 Duece and a half...

    ditch witch I do stupid crap, so you don't have to

    Man all I meet at those things are hippies who stash weed in their gramma's basement and illegals looking to score pointy toed cowboy boots.

    Edited: I just realized you said you arranged a swap, not you met him at a swap meet. Some days, reading comprehension just ain't my friend.

    It's a matter of..."Watch this space"

    the last

    He is right...things are still very volatile, with power struggles happening between parties in government, and within the parties in government. I dare say that some of the more secular pro democracy folk in the freedom movement who were instrumental in the overthrow of the Mubarak government will feel that they have been stiffed by the religious parties, and of course the military still holds the wild cards.

    I think the freedom movement's revolution is in a similar evolutionary stage that the Mensheviks and the Bolsheviks were in the time between the Russian 1917 February Revolution and the Russian 1917 October Revolution. Egypt's equivalent to Lennin, has yet to emerge.

    Just curious:
    How long has he been quietly gathering all that he needed so that, in just a single meeting with you, he got [at least] a portion of his holdings posted on the internet?

    [nono]Silly Gator!

    "They have their entrances and their exits"-Bill Shakespeare

    Mr Alphabet man, may still find it worthwhile poking about....particularly if their quarry is an ex SVN vet tunnel rat.

    Australia and the Vietnam War | Combat | Viet Cong Tunnels

    The VC sometimes had an entrance / exit to their tunnel complexes, and cache sites that were below water, as shown in the model of a VC tunnel complex displayed on the web page of the abovementioned weblink.

    Now...having an alligator as your site security definitely beats a pitbull hands down.....when you want access....just lure the guard away with a tasty morsel of alphabet agent, or put an electrical jolt in the water to give the guard a little bit of a move along.

    Who says I'm a mister nice guy???

    There is a term that no one uses today. Now such are called IEDs--They used to be called "booby traps". Even the old service manuals called them that with instructions.

    I don't think the term "boobytrap" is in danger of dying.

    The term "boobytrap" is still in common usage, at least in the Australian military, and it is still sometimes used in politically incorrect ways by some segments of the broader community: where pressing the tit means something quite different than the military meaning of the expression.

    I suppose using the term IED more accurately describes the device itself, rather than the method by which the device is used and activated...i.e. a device that is improvised from an assembleage of unorthodox materials in a field expedient manner. Although IED's are often used in boobytrapping, it makes for demoralising news reporting (demoralising for the troops, and demoralising for those on the home front) if the emphasis is placed on the boobys who initiate the boobytrap, rather than the device itself and its terminal effects.

    The use of the term IED also reflects the fact that often, at least in Afghanistan, the IEDs are command detonated, rather than victim initiated, which, despite the best possible care and precautions of those trained and alert to dealing with the risks of booby traps, just merely being in the wrong place at the wrong time is all that it takes...not any especial stupidity or incompetence on the part of the victim.

    I assure you that the term boobytrap is still a current terminology at combat engineering and assault pioneer training establishments, and the risks of boobytraps is an essential component of corps training, and pre-deployment training in the Australian Army. No, there is no conspiracy to render the term politically incorrect in places where it actually means something.
