bdu pants

2

I’m sorry, but I’m little confused about positions on Senior Class photo. It seems like Brooks has his elbow on Eric’s knee, right? But Eric’s legs look really funny, I mean, due to bottom of Eric’s combat boot, is it possible? Doesn’t make sense.

In the senior photo when they did the goofy picture, there’s a foot on the fat dudes (next to brooks) lap and I’m just wondering - is that Dylan’s foot????? And who’s knees is Brooks resting on?? I’m so confused lol.


I’ve studied and studied this photo quite a bit myself and and it’s not easy to figure out!  So, you’re not the only one that is coming up short over it! The thing that doesn’t make much sense is the body part in light blue denim jeans that I put a ‘?’ by. But, we can determine from the first photo, that Eric is wearing black BDU pants. Brooks and Zack have slightly nuanced shades of dark blue jeans so this means.. the light denim jeans have to be Dylan’s! His body is slopping forward and his looong thighs are kinda squeezed in together and all we can see are the tops of his knees  Brooks has his hand lazily resting on the top of Dyl’s knees.  I used to think that was Dylan’s boot..but I it seems too small given that Dylan had a size 12 foot.  It can’t possibly be Eric’s boot, because his body is leaning in the opposite direction. No way would he get his boot swung forward.  So, the only logical explanation would be Robyn’s boot. I don’t know what kind of rugged boots she has on but that would give her a fairly sizable foot for a girl - maybe size 9 or 10.  Which would mean that her right leg is bent, leaning on top of Dylan’s thigh (which we can’t see behind Zack) and she’s resting her boot on top of Zack’s leg.  That’s the best I can deduce of it presently!  :)  The photo really is a puzzle-like conundrum..   

And, by the way, Zack is not a “fat dude”, he is stocky, people, stocky. Sheeesh.  The poor guy…

The Basement Tapes

April 20th, 1999 tape - roughly 30 minutes before the attack

Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold are once more in the family room of the Harris home. Eric is filming. Dylan is wearing a black baseball cap on backward, exposing a “B” embroidered in white on the back of the hat - the Boston Red Sox logo. He’s wearing a plaid shirt, either dark blue or black with white; the shirt’s untucked. He’s wearing black BDUs (military-style pants) tucked into military-style boots. There are several bags on the floor, including a large maroon one.

Eric: “Say it now.”

Dylan: “Hey mom. Gotta go. It’s about a half an hour before our little judgment day. I just wanted to apologize to you guys for any crap this might instigate as far as (inaudible) or something. Just know I’m going to a better place. I didn’t like life too much and I know I’ll be happy wherever the fuck I go. So I’m gone. Good-bye. Reb…”

Dylan takes the camera then and begins filming Eric. Eric’s also wearing a plaid shirt that’s either dark blue or black with white, with a white t-shirt on underneath. His lower half can’t be seen.

Eric: “Yea… Everyone I love, I’m really sorry about all this. I know my mom and dad will be just like.. just fucking shocked beyond belief. I’m sorry, all right. I can’t help it.”

Dylan: (interrupts) “We did what we had to do.”

Eric: “Morris, Nate, if you guys live, I want you guys to have whatever you want from my room and the computer room.”

Dylan adds that they can have his things as well.

Eric: “Susan, sorry. Under different circumstances it would’ve been a lot different. I want you to have that fly CD.”

Eric: (eventually) “That’s it. Sorry. Goodbye.”

Dylan: (sticks his face in the camera) “Goodbye.”

The tape ends with a brief glimpse of a sign on the wall of Eric’s bedroom, someone’s arm partially blocking it from sight. It’s the letters: CHS along with a drawing of a bomb with a lit fuse and, in bold black letters, the word “clue”.

anonymous asked:

I'm new to the TCC, so sorry for the stupid question, but what are the basement tapes?

The basement tapes are videos that Eric and Dylan filmed before the massacre, explaining why they did it, apologizing to their relatives and friends, their methods, etc.
Those tapes weren’t exposed to the public because they are “destroyed”.
But after five years, parts of these videos were re-released to the public though the full-length tapes are still withheld due to court order.
Here’s an explication of one of those videos:(actually the last one)

Eric Harris is filming in his home with Dylan Klebold. Eric is operating the camera. There are numerous pipe bombs on the floor, including three that Eric refers to as the “Charlie batch”. He says they’re 2 inches in diameter and 6 inches in length. Six appear to be about 1 inch in diameter and 6 inches in length. All are wrapped in duct tape. Also on the floor is Eric’s sawed-off shotgun (he calls it “Arlene” – the name can be seen etched on the side of the gun in the video). He identifies another gun on the floor - a long black one - as a carbine. There are thirteen clips on the floor, which Eric says they were purchased at Green Mountain Guns.

“Yes, they did have the right number,” he notes.

There are two white boxes of 9mm bullets on the floor as well. Eric then points out something he calls “my bandolier of stuff” and said it will be filled with napalm. There’s a black plastic box on the floor filled with twenty-nine CO2cartridges wrapped with duct tape, fuses protruding from the end of each of them. The duct tape secures buckshot to the homemade mini-grenades. Eric refers to them as “crickets” and says they are his grenades. Dylan takes the camera then and he tapes Eric holding some of the guns.

The tape stops, then starts again, showing Eric wearing black BDUs (battle dress uniform style pants), no shirt and a web-type harness. He’s carrying the carbine attached to a sling and he is holding the shotgun. Eric sticks the shotgun into one of the cargo pockets and secures it with a web strap at his side. According to the viewing officer’s report in the Columbine Report, these weapons are the same ones that were used in the assault on Columbine High School.

Dylan makes a comment then about how Eric is a “soon to be 18 year old" [Placing the taping sometime before April 9th, Eric’s birthdate.]. He goes on to refer to "my Tec” and how he wants to do something with it “this weekend, maybe tomorrow.” He also says “My parents are going to fucking Passover." [Passover 1999 began on March 31 (Seder), with Good Friday on April 2, and Easter on April 4.]

With Klebold still using the camera, the teens move from the lower level family room of the Harris residence to Eric’s bedroom. Dylan aims the camera toward the west window and calls it a "bunker”. “You can’t see it,” says Dylan. “It’s buried there. That’s why it’s called a bunker.”

*** 

The tape stops again and when it starts, Eric Harris is alone in a moving car. The camera seems to be mounted on the car’s dashboard. It’s dark out and there are raindrops on the window. At one point he passes a street sign that reads “Federal”. There’s music playing loudly, making it hard at times to understand what Eric is saying. At one point he mentions “The Black Jack Crew" [Eric and Dylan worked at Blackjack Pizza], specifically mentioning "Jason” and “Chris”.

Eric: "You guys are very cool. Sorry, dudes. I had to do what I had to do.“

Eric also makes mention of "Angel”, “Phil”, and “Bob”.

Eric: "Bob is one of the coolest guys I’ve ever met in my life, except for being an alcoholic.“ Eric says he’s going to miss Bob. "It’s a weird feeling knowing you’re going to be dead in two and a half weeks.”

Eric says he can’t decide “if we should do it before or after prom”. At the end of this section of the tape Harris says he wishes he could have re-visited Michigan and “old friends”. He falls silent then and appears to start crying, wiping a tear from the left side of his face. He shuts the camera off.

*** 

When the tape starts again, Eric Harris has the camera and he and Dylan Klebold are in Dylan’s bedroom at the Klebold house. Dylan’s wearing black BDUs and a black t-shirt with the word “Wrath” printed on it in red letters. Dylan is attaching something to his pants which seem to be black suspenders. He then attaches what looks to be a tan ammo pouch to the suspenders or his belt. He attaches a green pouch to his right shin. Dylan then removes some items from an open case (small suitcase or hard-sided briefcase) that’s on the floor. Dylan takes out a sawed-off shotgun and puts the barrel of it into a cargo pocket on his pants, attaching it with webbing so it stays put. He has the TEC-DC9 (the same that was removed from his body after the shootings) on a sling over his shoulder.

Dylan makes a comment about his “50 round clip”. He mentions Brandon Larson and his head being on his knife. He talks about going to the prom with Robyn. He says he didn’t want to go but that his parents are paying for it. Eric says something about having three bags to use and they talk about wanting to “practice” the next couple of nights. Eric says they got “lasers and more propane today”. He also mentions four big black containers and two of some other sort of fuel. The boys talk about writing poems “in Kelly’s class today” and how ridiculous it was.

They start talking then about the double-barrel shotgun.

Dylan: "Thanks, Mr. Stevens.“ He then says to Eric: "He knew I was fucking buying it.”

Dylan gets dressed, pulling on a black trenchcoat. “I’m fat on this side,” he says and starts talking about how he looks “fat with all the stuff on”. He tries to toss the TEC-9 into his hand from where it’s hanging on the sling but his coat prevents the move.

Dylan: "I’ll have to take the coat off.“ 

Dylan complains then about how he doesn’t want to take off the coat – he says he likes his coat. The boys begin discussing how "fucking snow is gay” and that they “hope the shit clears out by Tuesday, actually Sunday”. Eric says he needs “dry weather for my fires”.

Fic: Addiction / Inspired by: image above >_> / Napollya, Age!Kink, Modern AU where Illya is a young spetsnaz agent and Napoleon is a full CIA agent. E-rated. Excerpt: 

Slowly, Napoleon sat up. His cellmate was surprisingly young, possibly in his early twenties at the very most, rangy, with long arms and legs, his blonde hair cut short, almost to the skull. His blue eyes were narrowed in suspicion, his mouth flattened into a sharp line, and he was dressed in a filthy thin undershirt that had once been white, and a pair of BDU pants that were caked with dried blood on the right thigh. He was also quite possibly the most beautiful young man Napoleon had ever seen, and for a moment Napoleon thought that perhaps he’d had a harder knock to the head from the smugglers than he had thought.

His cellmate looked Napoleon slowly over - the dusty, stained suit that was probably by now unsalvageable, the shirt with the top button ripped off, tie long missing, the cufflinks, the polished shoes, now mud-caked, and started to frown. “You are the American contact?” he asked quietly, in a thick Russian accent.

Shepard sat at her desk, chin in her hand as she went through her emails on her personal terminal in the Loft. There was a soft ding as a new one came in and she opened it up.

Commander-

Can we talk for a bit? It’s important.

James

Reaching over, she pressed the button on her personal comm.

“James, I just got your message. I got some time now.” She said.

“On my way.” He said and she got up, turning and leaning against the desk, crossing her arms over her stomach. She heard the elevator open a moment later and the door slid open with a hiss, James’s large frame almost filling the doorway. His eyes moved over as he looked at her in her tank top and BDU pants and a shiver slid down her spine at the naked desire that crossed over his features. James suddenly seemed to remember himself, clearing his throat and looking away from her, his hand coming up to rub at the back of his neck as a blush crept over his skin.

“You wanted to talk?” She asked and he nodded, looking back at her again, the expression from before buried away.

“Yeah, I uh…wanted to tell you before Admiral Hackett did.” James said, “I uh…asked to tell you first.”

Uh oh.

anonymous asked:

I'm kind of an idiot when it comes to firearms, but what are crickets?

Eric refers to them as “crickets” and says they are his grenades.   ‘Cricket’ bombs are improvised explosive devices, also known as cartridge bombs or CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) bombs. They are made by taking empty CO2 canisters (like what might be used to power a BB gun), and filling it with gunpowder or flash powder and attaching a fuse. Over 90 of these and other small IEDs were made by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold for use in the Columbine massacre. They carried these tiny bombs on their body in the pockets of their military bdu and cargo pants and duffel bags.

The CO2 device, commonly referred to as a kid bomb or cricket, also falls under the destructive-device classification in most state penal codes.

Bomb-makers construct this device from a small CO2 cylinder or cartridge of the type commonly used in BB and pellet guns, a swimmer’s life vest or seltzer bottles. Makers vent the CO2 cartridge by punching a hole in a lightweight metal closing-disk set in the neck of the cartridge, then enlarge the hole with a nail or ice pick until it’s large enough to admit a length of firecracker or model-rocket fuse. They then fill the empty CO2 cartridge with a fine grade of black powder or pistol powder, insert the fuse through the hole and typically secure the fuse in place with black electrician tape or epoxy glue.

When detonated, the confined powder explodes, ripping the cartridge body and sending red-hot fragments outward at up to 4,000 feet per second. Typically constructed by novice bomb-makers, CO2 cartridge bombs sometimes kill the maker when a short fuse doesn’t allow them enough time to avoid the vessel’s fragmentation.

Don’t assume an unexploded CO2 device lacks danger. Set up your perimeter, evacuate the affected area and call an expert to deal with the device. Don’t handle the device; resist the temptation to move it. Remember: These devices usually contain gunpowder, a substance that can prove very unstable under the wrong circumstances.

(p.s. it looks kinda like a metal tampon. ;) )

He stepped up to the lobby desk of The Principia, a little surprised Jason wasn’t there to meet him. He’d said he would be waiting when they talked yesterday afternoon. The receptionist called up to the penthouse, then told him to take the elevator up. This was not the plan. Jason was one thing, the entire SPQR team of superheroes was another.

I’m not ready for that.

mjralenko replied to your post: Kaidan sighed and pressed a button to buzz the…

Kaidan was in his BDU pants, but had stripped down to a t-shirt. “Hey, Shepard,” he bit his lips as he came down the few steps. Sound and light of the empty fish tank behind him. “I…” he what? Then, a bit lamely, one hand rubbing the back of his neck. “I have those reports.

“I’m waiting on about sixteen different reports. You’ll have to be more specific.” He watched Kaidan. The man seemed uneasy. “You want a drink?”
