    That's ALWAYS been my favorite Heinlein... Other top picks are "Farnham's Freehold" and "Starship Troopers." I've never even bothered to see the movie...

      Names, and what people make of them, are an interesting phenomenon.

      I grew up as a "Jr.", my Dad being called "Hank", and myself being relegated to the diminutive term "Hankie". That fact caused a lot of bruised knuckles (and an occasional fat lip in case of failure!) when I was a kid, as the taunts from the peer group required answering!

      Later on, the last name was the problem: "Juska minute, you", etc.

      I guess nearly everyone has experienced that at some point in their lives. Just living, I guess!

        Hankj:
        Try growing up a Seaman with the other spelling and its meaning! Its funny now but it took a brown belt in Karate and pummel a bully or two, to get any respect as a kid. I am no giant at 5'11" and 170lbs. so imagine being 5'5 and 100lbs beating the tar out of the bullies some 20+ years ago. That said I fell your pain buddy!

        Peace,

            I had a few rough times growing up with the name Peter. In those early years it doesnt take much of an excuse for kids to be realy rotten. Thank god we all grew up, but its still nice to try reliving some of the better times now and then, when the body can hold out long enough.
            To all who contribute to this board.
            My sincere thanks , Pete.

              Paul,

              The seaman thing definately would have been a growing experience. I usually got SIGGI. That was about it.

                  Good question Paul, this is a pretty close group as forums go and this is a great way to know who your talking to. I just used my E-bay name because I was new to this stuff and wasn't sure what the norm was. It reflects my atempt at buying and selling cars and trucks to pay for my hobbies(racing...and now welding)which I've been doing since I was 16. Now I feel old as I have been doing this for 27 yrs...don't have to think about it like that very often! One thing I would like to see here is more people showing their location on the ID part of the screen! Good Luck to All, JEFF

                    this is fairly plain and simple.

                    DesertWolf = My wife and friends say that the wolf is the animal that most reflects my personality. And we live in an area that is very similar to the Arizona Sage desert region.

                        It would probably be more like . . .

                        I'd like a P220 but the last few years has seen my money going into welding equipment. My favorite handguns are my Kimber's, sweet shooters! ! !
