I don't think so, considering you're the tank who replaced him back then! (Any chance you want to level a healer and start a trend? :D )

discussing gun ownership rights on guild forums and someone put this gem
We saw it in say WW1 where people let themselves be slaughtered by the 10 thousands when they attacked the enemy lines; somehow most people think ***it is true death rate is 90% but i will for sure be among the 10% who survive****.

(emphasis mine)

i wasnt aware that the millions of soldiers on both side of the trenches in WWI were all volunteers to go up and over....
this just makes my brain hurt...

I'm not quite sure what your point is here, but it is remarkable if not that different from war throughout the ages (the Napoleonic and American Civil wars both saw battles with similar casualty rates to WW1, often with volunteer forces). The UK only introduced conscription in 1916, after both our pre-war regulars and swathes of volunteers had been cut down. Why did people volunteer? Partly, people did not appreciate the risk of enlisting - they thought it would all be over by Christmas and Europe was certainly less gung-ho about war when it came to being asked to repeat the experience with WW2. Partly, having enrolled, you did not really volunteer to go up and over - you could be shot by your own side if you declined. And no doubt what the poster said about thinking bad stuff will happen to the other guy not you was close to a psychological necessity. But it does make one's brain hurt - Einstein's declaration "the whole world has gone mad" is my favorite commentary on WW1.

Guildmate in my CM group keeps messing up over and over and over again to stupid bullshit.
I only got Shadopan and Brewery left,and did days of tries on shadopan,yet he keeps messing up due to heavy offtopic engagements on skype isntaed of focusing.
I kicked him from my CM group and now I'M the dickhead of the universe for doing so.He is also a raider and does the same during progression (Which also contributed to our shit world position)

THere is only so much rustle I can take before I get mad.

my point was the bolded part
i get that you had to tell yourself ill be the lucky one that lives, and in my reply on the guild forums, i mentioned that both sides had officers waiting to make sure they didnt have to shoot you themselves

in previous wars, there werent long static front lines with a no mans land between them afaik
yes the horrors of war are still the horrors of war, but trench warfare in WWI is beyond just hte horrors of war
it is a special kind of hell, and the only way to get out of that hell was to go into one worse by charging across no mans land
but like i pointed out, they didnt let themselves get killed
they were following orders and doing what they had to

Just when we start looking decent half the guild and the best players decide to leave or quit, fml.

I don't know wither to jump ship myself or continue to be patient with people.

iPod dying during a workout is horrible.

And what's the shelf life on the original nanos anyway? This guy has been fine for about 5(6?) years and has suddenly decided to see the light midway through two workouts lately.

Trying to teach myself how to Panda tank on my Paladin in case I need to fill in for one of the mainspec tanks is awol is fucked. Feels like I'm slogging through mud after adapting to the haste stacking nature of Ret and levelling my Brewmaster. Do. Not. Like. Gunna swap to haste from mastery but with so much of my item budget being poured into expertise I'm not liking my chances of being able to do it to any acceptable level.

Throwing in the towel for the 2nd raid team. Sorry Joe, your guild was super cool, but no raid means no Sagara, and I don't see that 2nd team happening before a couple of months.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.
