OK, so the last few times I've ridden the Cross, I've seen little blue plastic army men sniping me from the trees.

I'm not sure if there's a bunch of them, or just one that's moving around. Anybody else notice this?

I'm serious! Yesterday there was one stationed in the tree-that-you-useta-hafta-duck-under. I've seen him [them] up higher on the cross as well, specifically at the bridge-rock.

Like one of these, but blue.



If I see this guy out there, I'm gonna start running Tuffies and Tru Goo. :)

What you need to do is this situation is make an example of one of them. Catch'm while he's off guard and chop his head off with your multi-tool, then leave him in plain sight for the others to find as a warning.

Alternatively, you could collect them and drop them into the gas tank of a special someone's Porsche during FFTF. :)

Troops went AWOL

I have some input on this... i have a friend that has repeatedly positioned a sniper (green not blue) on top of the junction rock where the holy cross splits from the tabby. His army men dissapear in a matter of days, it is quite troubling... apparently they are turning blue and hiding in trees...

A Western version of the Gnome

Note some of the adaptations:

Smaller stature - Enables them to better hide from predators and to make it easier to sneak up on their victims. Requires much less food and water than their Mid-western brethren - perfect for harsh arid environments.

Hard, flexible exoskeleton - Less susceptible to breaking in the event of a fall on harsh, rocky terrain.

Well armed - They obviously infiltrated the enclaves of the militant anti-government groups out west and came away equipped to wreak havoc.

Inedible - A totally unpalatable genetic composition. Put fire to the little man, and rather than a tasty, slow-cooked morsel, you get a melted, homogeneous firey mass that puts off a toxic smoke.

Some things never change though - they favor garish colors and their mean-spiritedness is evident in their enslavement of the collared lizard as their beast of burden.

I'll get proof.

If I get a chance to go out there today, I'll bring a camera. And a tinfoil hat.

When I was in 6th or 7th grade, I read a Stephen King short story - I think it was called "Battleground".

Anyway, the victim (who wronged a mysterious toy manufacturer) recieves a package, and upon opening it, little army men come out and attack him.

I remember the vivid description of the criss-crossing lacerations the victim recieves from swatting an attacking helicopter, and how the army men finally do him in.... with a built-to-scale atomic weapon with an apartment sized blast radius.

Loudpawlz: Inedible? I dunno, I think I prolly ate a few of them as a kid. I also got a raisin stuck up my nose once.

recon complete...enemy spotted, although they seem ...he seams on the small side. There was a small fire fight, i retreated down the trail. I can see this becoming a problem if not handled quickly and with the utmost determination. My I suggest a coordinated attack, land and air. Dawn,no dust, no afternoon,say about 4:00.

I've heard that this is what hapens when gnomes eat peyote

They're edible. You have to boil them in the ball sack of a big horn sheep. Should be served with a side of cherries jubilee.

Spotted at the Widowmaker wall ride. Aparently we startled him, and he retreated just as I snapped this photo. Use caution; this intelligence is nearly 24 hours old.
You'd better start carrying a lighter and a little can of Aquanet with you on your rides, never know when one of the bastidges will take it upon himself to gut you with his bayonnet.
