I will be gone for a month or two cause I'm going to train to be Airborne. I'm going to miss some of you. Have fun and good luck.

DOO: Do you mean flying like in DBZ? I hope you don't and you merely mean learning how to fly a plane... Because no one in the world (that are known) can actually fly like in DBZ, and even if they could, 1 or 2 months wouldn't be enough time (in all likelyhood).

good point...what if he were to pretend if he was a a bird... a bird as in a big bird from sesame street. what if secretly he is him, and he flys across the world deciding on how to become a dbzer and sell crack to little minors just like barney did?
probably harsh huh?

dbz? where the hell did you come up with "flying like dbz" from, talyn? "Airborne" is a division of the military ("Airborne Division"). i guess the original post could have mentioned that for clarity, but really, why would you assume dbz-ish things from something that is so vague?

doo: have fun.

Philippians 2:5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,  7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

See, that's the States, in the UK, the RAF are our 'Airborne Division' it's a little hard for me to know that when he merely puts Airborne.

Quote from: Dark Omega Overlord
I'm going to train to be Airborne

I've heard a lot of newbies in the past say they are going to learn how to fly, airborne has a similar meaning. Except while one is an action, the other is an adjective, but the syntax allowed it to be used in such a way 'to be airborne' means almost the same as 'flying'. While the capilisation of the first letter should've given a hint, I've seen many people use capitalisation where not needed, so I dismissed it.

The vagueness, and the fact he was previously trying to ressurect some clan or something a short while back, made me question whether or not it was what most would deem 'fluffy' and he actually was trying to DBZ-it. This whole argument would come down to that one word airborne, which is where the ambiguity would come from; if I had known about the military division, it may have been less ambiguous.

We all assumed because we were fantasizing about helping him train, by tossing him out windows, or off of cliffs, or something like that.
