The M-60 I worked on seemed to be pretty roomy.

That's because they're 37 feet tall.  The M1 is much more cramped

how material shortages effected the German war effort over the years.

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.

^ Odd thing yesterday, driving my son home from school going up I45 N. There was a helicopter hovering above the freeway in the distance. I thought it was a news chopper, which does that when there's a particularly nasty accident or fire or other sensationalist thing that's happened involving carnage that they have to short stroke all over the news.

As we got closer I realized "That's no moon..."

It was an AH-64, just hovering there, as nice as you please. Probably about only 400-500' up in the air.

I was all, :o because we don't see many of those, much less over the city.

Tank on the far right may want to reorient its gun.

shit no, it has an antipersonel round loaded and is gonna clear the point tank's engine deck of unauthorized hitchhikin' critters    :uglystupid2:


... my serious guess is that the driver slowed down a wee bit too much

but you're 100% ... reorient the gun

you do that with coax; in which case, the orientation is fine.

the only place we carry anti-personnel rounds on tanks anymore is Korea, and I think we started phasing those out a while ago.  I don't think any NATO countries still stock them either, but I could be wrong.
