• Can anyone help me with ID-ing a US Army shoulder sleeve insignia on winter coat, NATO 7080/9 spec?

    I acquired the coat at the salvation army thrift store. It is a winter coat, NATO 7080/9. Name tab is gone, US ARMY tab still there, On the left hand sleeve, the patch is round, subdued green, with a single solid horizontal green bar on a black background. Does anyone know what it represents? Not sure if it is an SSI, but it is where an SSI would be.

  • What is the new vision test involving yellow and black squares called?

    For my medicals, the vision acuity portion was accomplished by looking into a microsope-looking device that projected squares with patterns in them and I had to identify which corner had the differing pattern. Anybody know the name of this new test?

  • How come some people DON'T get seasick?

    People have motion sickness because their brain gets confused with all the contradicting sensory inputs from sight, feel and inner ear. Because of the contradicting information the brain thinks that the body has ingested something toxic and causes us to spew. It seems to me that everybody has this contradicting set of sensory inputs.

    The lower left part of my back hurts when I bike. (where my back meets my waist.) Why? Any way of fixing this problem or preventing it short of stopping to bike? I do bike very very fast, but if I bike slower, it just starts hurting later.

    here's the link to the article: http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/afp/090212/te... Doesn't anyone find it fishy that despite what NASA, STRATCOM and other space agencies calls "a very low risk" and "the risk is considered very low", two satellites just happened to collide very spectacularly, and not just a glancing blow. There is lots of space junk in orbit, but relatively few satellites. How come two of them just happened to hit each other so accurately? Anybody think it may be the US trying to disable a Russian spy satellite before it uncovered something important? A anti satellite missile launch would be detected visually and by radar by countries all over the world. Making a very old, near-worthless satellite take out another may not be such a crazy proposition in this case. The Cold war is over you say, but still, it doesn't mean the US isn't testing out a new improvised satellite weapon. After all, there are more and more old defunct satellites in orbit, most with a small amount of maneuvering fuel left, the US might as well take the hint from Iraq and create some ISKs of their own. (Improvised satellite killers) This may actually be a salvage of the "star wars" plan they were floating around to scare the USSR during the Cold War. What are your theories? Do you think mine is even possible to pull off?

  • Which foot should be my leading foot?

    I've tried every trick in the book to find out if you're goofy or regular. It's always my right foot. But when I'm on the slopes, i'm slightly less adept at maneuvering with my right foot leading. Both are okay,, i fall slightly more often with the right one leading. Should I just go ahead and use my left to lead?

  • Do I really need a stomp pad?

    I'm a beginner, new to snowboarding. stomp pad is a grip to place your free foot while getting off lift. I've read you don't really need this if you don't want to ruin your graphics. I'd rather not get one, will I be okay getting off the lift? Is it harder or unsafe? Where do you put your foot if you don't have one?
