"Age 45 name is most likely spelt wrong even when submitted Aric comes back as Eric go figure Pronounced wrong by all people who never heard the name before. Never met another Aric but read in a paper somewhere that one of the firefighters that had passed in 9/11 had a son named Aric" Feb. 18, 2013:
"Be glad you aren't in the military. We had meat gazres whose job it was to watch you pee into the cup to ensure that it's really your urine. A little awkward at first, but not so bad after a while. Females had something similar that involved flashlights and blue water (to ensure you didn't scoop up the water from the toilet and call it urine). Had to do this about once a month. Memorable moment was when a buddy, Big Dog, had been out drinking and was called for a whiz quiz he had to go so bad that he peed the cup right out of his hand. Ah, the bad old days." Jul. 10, 2012:
