The fact someone picks an avatar obviously reflects their thoughts/opinions and beliefs. So if someone puts an edgy picture up, I'm guessing it's gonna be an acurate portrayal of themselves... Just because when a fembot saw Doc's picture of a beautiful women she thought, "sexist, unclassy" of doc an...

If someone wanted to, I think he could just go to a war-tone area like DR Congo or Somalia and offer his services as a merc pilot to a militia or a government. That is my impression. Sounds well thought out. what part of that was "well thought out?" The governments don't need pilots, they need equi...

Your best bet would be to google merc's and find one of their forums. Executive Outcomes(one of the former bigger operators) didn't have an aviation department. I'm guessing the guerrillas/gov't/mercenary agencies charter out. I think you might be thinking of drug/weapon smugglers(" lord of war ")??...
