My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

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

I did wonder about that, but, for some reason, I always get those 2 mixed up. It would have been OK if it had of been a M10 :-)

Nice one - you got me there!

apparently the 76mm was getting dated in 1944 until they got a new ammo type.... HVAP/APCR?

I visited the new museum at the Collings Foundation yesterday in Massachusetts.  Great museum.  Here is just a small portion of it:

Those look like some of the pieces from the Littlefiled collection that were auctioned off.
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.

I believe they are actually.  I heard some talk on the museum floor about the Littlefield collection.  Next time I go I'll have to talk to some of the staff there to get the whole story.

Wasn't the Jumbo a heavily armored M4 with 76mm gun?
