Probably not what it seems, attitude wise at least.

Another way of looking at it is she's giving tongue to image of a 'black" man, as she's a black woman. Probably less disrespect and more sexual innuendo intended. I doubt she intended disrespect at the time.

Well, that's not what came to mind immediately when I saw the picture. Even if taken as you saw it, its still low brow and basically why do it after all and get your face pasted all over.

You know when I became an NCO within a short time in Okinawa, I pulled duty(at airport), I guess only because i was a junior NCO. Go to a warehouse and guard a *6%+54#!! box, well later I found out the box was all the remains of returned Marine, a very small box. Nothing special just be there and walk, chew tobacco, write a letter or something to pass time until morning and be relieved. Then, i was told I had guarded the remains. This was not a metal container or fancy coffin, but a nailed box with stencils, etc. on it and all. enuf said .... -----Willy

(NT) I suspect you're right, James. Still dumb though.

When I was in AF

Inside our compound we had this picture of an old man with a flight helmet on his head. The caption read "Rest Easy America, Your Air Force Is On Watch" or something to that effect. It might be on the internet somewhere by now.

I didn't see anything wrong with the link.

It's more of a montage of related and unrelated

images. The old man pilot is at the top. Scrolling down gets a few that might not be fit for children.

Never mind. Some of the pictures seem to change

or be replaced over time.

If there is something tasteless or stupid that can be done

you can be sure someone will do it, and do it on film or a chip.

It is, as the French say, La Condition Humaine. Of course it couldn't be because we are all, regardless of colour, descended from apes.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
