Welcome Home, Welcome Back To Texas!

By Scorpion Sting, published on May 13, 2013

...two AAS degrees do look good on a resume. I'm not complaining since I didn't pay one red cent for the collage degrees since they were completed through a variety of programs offered thru different Air Force channels. On the down side and on the upside as well I was discharged from the United States Air Force as a Disabled Veteran as I sustained a major injury while living in Japan that saw fir to follow me thru my entire career. Cycling back into civilian life was hard for me since I ate, drank, and shit the Air Force for so damn long. It is very hard to turn that off, even as I sit here... (more)

Welcome To The Land Of Enchantment

Worms Are For Wussies

By Scorpion Sting, published on May 10, 2013

Back in the early 90s I had the rare opportunity to live in northern Japan while serving in the United States Air Force. I had considered myself, in the beginning, a decent drinker. Jack Daniels, Wild Turkey, Jim Beam, Jose Cuervo, and Crown Royal were all my friends whom I knew very well by the time I turned 19.
