Several years ago I was bowhunting with a buddy on a 30,000 acre private ranch in Northern CA just after daybreak and we started hearing bagpipes. It was eerie to say the least. Knowing we were supposed to be the only ones for miles around yet there it was. It through us off our game a bit.

Dad- some years back, was the OPFOR (opposing force) for a military unit in a field exercise. Due to bad tasking, we were short of bad guys. At night, prepositioned 3 boom box cassette players in different sectors beyond their perimeter- different lead times on tapes.

Started concert at 2 am- sounds of armored vehicles, getting louder. Voices and military commands. Followed by bagpipes. This was building up over 7 minutes. Then I fired ONE round of blank ammo.

Defenders fired ALL of their ammo in the next 60 seconds. Me? Laying in a hole with a thermos of coffee, listening. Yeah, it WILL spook you.

I like the eerie sound of bagpipes.

I've seen HUMINT guys use liberal amounts of the Barney song (I love you, you love me...) at high volume to soften an interrogation subject...worked flawlessly. This is why I'm against water boarding, there are other methods not nearly as brutal, and they work.

I've also seen blindfolded men listening to tapes of dogs barking. Barney worked better.

They also use bands like drowning pool in sensory deprivation rooms. All you can heart is the music, you see feel and smell nothing

DAMN IT ! Gran Torino should be in the dictionary under the finest american film made ! That movie never gets old

After 14 years I finally finished Saving Private Ryan without falling asleep . damn good film

Other note : 8:30 this morning pops calls me with exciting news that a tractor trailer has rolled over and its full ....... was full of oranges coming out of florida.
Never knew how heavy a few oranges were , almost destroyed my lil 6x10 trailer hauling a few loads back to the shop . But it sure does smell good up there ..... for now until the rain lets up and the flippin temp gets above 34
