No Topic. Anything Goes.
« on: September 05, 2009, 09:38:35 PM »
Hi,
I was missing that "No Topic" topic from the HM board so I started this one.
I saw this video and thought you all might enjoy it also.
It's an amazing "Heroic" war story, with very graphic surgery video, but worth seeing if you don't mind actual surgery footage.   

From a Vietnam vet who served as a Marine grunt in 1969:   As you might know, I'm working on the book WAR HEROES: Voices from Afghanistan.  One of the stories is about PVT Channing Moss, who was impaled by a live RPG during a Taliban ambush while on patrol.  Army protocol says that medevac choppers are never to carry anyone with a live round in him.  Even though they feared it could explode, the flight crew said damn the protocol and flew him to the nearest aid station.  Again, protocol said that in such a case the patient is to be put in a sandbagged area away from the surgical unit, given a shot of morphine and left to wait (and die) until others are treated.  Again, the medical team ignored the protocol.  Here's a seven-minute video put together by the Military Times, which includes actual footage of the surgery where Dr. John Oh, a Korean immigrant who became a naturalized citizen and went to West Point, removed the live round with the help of volunteers and a member of the EOD (explosive ordinance disposal) team.  I've interviewed several of the people involved. Moss has undergone six operations but is doing well at home in Gainesville, GA.  To me, this is one of the most amazing stories I've ever worked on.  I think you'll find the video pretty remarkable.

That's "above and beyond" Zip

Not really related, but I'm glad this guy lives out of range!, A Pennsylvania history buff who recreates firearms from old wars accidentally fired a 2-pound cannonball through the wall of his neighbor's home.

Fifty-four-year-old William Maser fired a cannonball Wednesday evening outside his home in Georges Township that ricocheted and hit a house 400 yards away.

The cannonball, about two inches in diameter, smashed through a window and a wall before landing in a closet. Authorities say nobody was hurt.

State police charged Maser with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.

No one answered the phone Friday at Maser's home. He tells WPXI-TV recreating 19th century cannons is a long time hobby. He says he is sorry and he will stop shooting them on his property, about 35 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

So how do you post a picture? The insert image icon doesn't seem to work for me. I can post a hyperlink no problem, but no joy on images

Or, you can type the url, highlight it and clich the image button, it will put the tags in the appropriate place. Seems lots of people have nee having problems with figuring this out. I'm trying to find a combo or more versatile way to resolve this with V2.0.

For example:
Code: [Select]

Dish Network.  Channel 196.  9p.m.  There is a show called WTF.  Description:  Unbelievable stories you won't believe.  Looks like a show about morons.

gotta tell you NP, when I go to  "help" and look at "posting", and the "Standard posting options" screen , I click on the insert image icon, the brackets show up. However when I go and actually try to post a reply, clicking on the insert image does not bring up the brackets. Strange!
Have I been banned from posting pictures?  I can clean up my act given another chance!
