how hard is it for 4 people with basic mechanical skills to operate a tank?
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.

My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

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

What if they have no directional skills?

Wouldn't that depend on the tank? Some of the older ones were basically giant skid-steers with one giant shift lever for each track and some kind of related clutch pedal.

Just to make it move from place to place?  Not too hard.  Really only need 2 to do that.  To fight effectively you need a little more time to develop some skills.

Windy's first tank was this:

Thor was very creative.
“Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out until too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along”.  Terry Pratchett.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Tallulah Bankhead: "I'll come and make love to you at five o'clock. If I'm late, start without me."

"With your eyes closed?"
"That helped."  Lauren Bacall

Master Chiefs are sneaky, dastardly, and snarky miscreants who thrive on the tears of Ensigns and belly dancers.   Admiral Gerry Bogan.

Something along the lines of the Tzar tank?
