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.

When it comes to armoured cars, the sdkfz 234 'PUMA' takes some beating.

The 222 is a neat little scout car, too.

Yes it was.  That would be, for me anyway, the coolest car to show up to work in or to drop the kids off to school.



Edit:  Bob I agree, the PUMA packed a pretty good punch for a scout car.  I like all of the German armored cars of the period.  The Soviets had some nice models too however.

This model is my favorite Russian car:

That the BA10?

Aye, the Puma's gun (if I remember correctly) was a 50mm L60 seni-automatic quick firer, so it could punch out some decent rounds in a short space of time.

I like all the '8 Rad' varients of that vehicle.

My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

Yes it's the BA10, my favorite of the Russian scout cars. 

I didn't realize the Puma's gun was a quick firer.  That gun indeed sounds like it could put a lot of hurt on someone or something in a short amount of time.


Windy that's a nice car you posted.  I hate to admit it but I'm not that knowledgeable about modern equipment.  Who makes/uses that car?

222 hulls make up the body of a Star Wars escape pod and the rear of a X-wing.  they are also used on AT-ATs and two other SW ships Im forgetting about.

^That is a nice find Star, thanks for sharing.  I will have to revisit Star Wars now to see if I can find those bits and pieces.
