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.

Cool find AR.

I'd love for the US to build a new BB, armed with 2-4 railguns, laser PD system, and hundreds of VLS missiles.  Good armor, nuke powered.  No aircraft.

Just realized I wrote "missile/railgun" when I meant "laser/railgun."

One of the LCS (Littoral Combat Ship). They've built 2 different designs. That's one of the Independence-class with a trimaran hull.

The Freedom-class is a more conventional design.
