    Sending some DVD's to troops in Iraq


    We have a name and APO address of a friend of Dan's (legalspeed) who is in Iraq for Christmas. He has said that the troops over there would like some DVDs (new releases) to relieve the boredom and brighten up their xmas.

    SOOOOOOO, I am starting a paypal fund to buy some DVDs to send over there. I want to send them in the next couple of days so they get there in time.

    Please, if you wish to donate some cash-ola, please paypal a few bucks to dereksinclair@comcast.net

    IMPORTANT!!
    Please also post here indicating how much you donated and an idea of what movies you want me to get for them. If you REALLY want it to be anonymous then that's your choice but I would rather everyone got credit for their donation.

    I already bought Sspider Man 2 and the Family Guy second series.

    I personally think that this is a very worthwhile cause and I'll include a card with all the names of the doners.

    Thanks, and PLEASE do not bastardize this thread.

    Paypal sent....I know its not much, but you can probably get one DVD for my $20.

    And porn is not ok, they get in trouble for that, don't forget what country they are in!!!

    Yes, absolutely don't send porn. They will stop the whole package. For the past several months (i guess its almost been a year) I've been gather magazines and books to send to the guys in my uncle's unit, and they stopped one whole big box of stuff for some playboys some wiseass I know decided to put in the box (after explicitly tellin folks not to)

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    I have a million of those (new releases too!) but I think we should only send new, wrapped DVDs for security's sake.

    Well, I keep calling but I get his voicemail all the time. Maybe it's because the Verizon coverage isn't too good inside an APC in Fallujah, I dunno!!


    Seriously, last word from dan was that what they wanted were new releases on DVD.

    My suggestions for DVDs would be comedy - they probably have enough horror and gore and drama over there to last them a lifetime.

    They DEFINITELY need National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

    Woohoo!!! $165 so far. Thanks guys!!!

    Keep it coming. We can hopefully send a boatload of DVDs over.

    P.S

    Funny story. I actually giggled out loud today in Best Buy in front of a bunch of people I didn't know. I was perusing the DVDs and looking for stuff to send over there and my dark humour took over when I saw "Blackhawk Down" I just pictured them opening the box and seeing that and going "What the fuck!!!"???

    Thanks will.

    You sent $5.21 more than 903 other people on this board so don't feel bad. Every penny is appreciated.

    ...and by the way, i'm not criticising ANYBODY for not donating. I know some people do their own thing and some others may have political or moral reasons not to and that's fine by me too.
