Got the PSP on Friday!

Damn, this thing is basass!! I bought MVP Baseball and the movie Hero. The screen is amazing and the speakers even sound good. it comes with a nice pouch, ear phones (w/ an additional extention you can plug in which has a remote to control volume, play/pause, and tracks), A battery charger and a strap so if you get mad at a game it won't fall to the ground if you decide to throw it. It's got a USB so you can download MP3's, photo's and even video's to a memory card, which is also compatible with all Sony cards as long as they are Memory Card duo's. You can also play a heads up game with someone else on another PSP via the infared system. Games and movies are pretty much the same prices and they are making audio CD's for them now. I think it's got auilt n memory so you can save games to that rather than use up space on the card. If you're watching a DVD you can stop it in the middle of it, take it out and play a game or something then put it back in and it will start right where you left off. All for 249 bucks. Not too bad. it can also be used as a remote for the PS3 when it comes out.

I want one of those things. Ever since I saw one, I knew I needed it. I just haven't sold the wife on the $300 price tag! That's $249 plus a game and accessories.

That's the main reason for buying it GAS. I'm going to Balad Air Base. About 70 miles north of Baghdad.

Hey you'll get some good sun there! Aren't you in the air force? You going to have some bag to keep that thing in to keep sand out of it?

Yeah hopefully that's all I get. Those guys are mortar happy over there. I gotta put my mortar dodging boots on. The PSP has a cool pouch to carry it in. Should work good.

Better pickup an extra battery, I don't imagine you'll have a lot of opportunity to plug it in.

I won't be mobile at all so i'll be able to charge it frequently. I'm sure I'll be online talking to you guys from there. You guys will keep me sane in my boredom. The job is pretty easy, it's just the environment that's not so nice.

Basically I assemble, inspect, and store all types of conventional munitions ranging from 5.56mm bullets all the way up to 2000 pound smart bombs and missiles. Anything that's not nuclear and goes on a jet that blows up, we build. It's not the job I wanted and it sucks because it's real hard to get a civilian job with my experience. I wanted to be a jet engine mechanic but my recruiter fuked me. But the people are real cool. I've made some great friendships in the A.F.

We all appreciate....

The support we get from our fellow americans, but it is not really appropriate for anyone to ask what our jobs are, especially if we choose to make it public that we are going somewhere. Not to flame anybody, but if he wishes to give you an answer, it should probably be done privately. These are dangerous times we live in.

that blows DL...I have had recruiters blow smoke up my @ss before when I was getting out of HS...I told them to F off and leave me alone. They tell you one thing but it all depends on your asvab test scores, but by that time your already the military's @ss when you get the test results.

Yea Ive been wanting a PSP, but im just gonna wait until the PS3 or XBOX360 come out and see the differences then.


Good luck buddy! Wish we coulda hung out in Vegas when I was there, but I was pretty drunk , I didnt really have a snese of time or location other than I was in Vegas and on vacation.

God bless and thanks for doing what you do!
