So I have a friend...

Ok... I'll wait for everyone to stop laughing.

So... one of my Supporters Seeking Membership (BACA hopeful) who's in the National Guard. He's also been having trouble finding a job outside the Guard. But he finally found THE position for him...

Teaching in Africa.

He's raving about the listed pay: something like $50K. More than he made in the sandbox during deployment. When I pointed out that he'd be getting shot at, without being able to shoot back, he listed out the procedure...

"Nope! There's nowhere in the listing that says you can't have a weapon! I'm bringing money, and buying an AK and a sidearm! I figure I'll teach 'em english, and maybe take out a warlord or two! Set me up to get into Blackwater! 'Hey... you taughht english in Africa... how's that helpful?' 'well... I taught 'em english, and we worked small unit tactics for extra credit!'"

My gawds... what a freak...

If this is who I think it is, his grasp on reality has occasionally been lacking in the past.
