Oh, I failed to spot the Phalanxes. When I was on the Independence (CV62) in the late 80's, at the time undergoing a massive 4 year overhaul at Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, it was neat to watch the big phalanx whip around to track passenger airliners approaching the airport. They were turned on but not armed. Imagine the tragedy that would have occurred if they'd shredded a 747 loaded with passengers.  :o
Numbers 31:17-18
"Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."

Psalm 137:9
"Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."

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.

Yes it is!

It needs a striped sail and rows of shields for proper presentation though.

it really is sad seeing that

like that picture of that african rebel armed with an AK.... wearing a flourescent orange life jacket as body armour
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

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