meanwhile somewhere in the Fulda Gap

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

that was a Thunder Run, but it was shot in real life, not as a set for a show / movie / etc.

It might have later been used or re-created for something else, but that's the original footage I saw about 2 months after it was shot in Baghdad.  The guy that showed me got it from the gunner on that tank, that he'd served with years before.

Yeah. After I read the book, I checked out youtube, and there is quite a long clip that was taken during the real event. I assume that from the same thing.
