Murphy's Laws Of Combat Operations
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Friendly fire - isn't.
Recoilless rifles - aren't.
Suppressive fires - won't.

You are not Superman; Marines and fighter pilots take note.

Try to look unimportant; the enemy may be low on ammo and not want
to waste a bullet on you.

Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself.

Never go to bed with anyone crazier than yourself.

There is no such thing as an atheist in a foxhole.

Never draw fire; it irritates everyone around you.

No inspection ready unit has ever passed combat.

If the enemy is within range, so are you.

Military Intelligence is a contradiction.

Air defense motto: shoot 'em down; sort 'em out on the ground.

If you can keep your head while those around you are losing
theirs, you may have misjudged the situation.

The most dangerous thing in the combat zone is an officer with a
map

MountainWings:Saturday - How Much Do You Make In An Hour?
----------------------------------------------
MountainWings A MountainWings Moment #1278 Wings Over The Mountains of Life
----------------------------------------------
How Much Do You Make In An Hour?
================================

A boy asked his father, "How much do you make in a hour?

The father got mad and answered roughly, "Don't bother me." He was tired and irritable after a tough day at work, but the boy insisted. "Please, how much do you make?"

The father said in a bad tone of voice, "$8.00 dollars for now." Then his son asked, "Father can you loan me four dollars?"

The father said to him in a bad way, "I told you not to bother me, shut up and go to your room!"

At bedtime the father was more calmed and felt bad about the way he treated his son. He went upstairs to his son's room and asked, "Are you asleep?" And he gave to the boy the four dollars that he asked for.

The boy thanked his father, put his hand under his pillow, pulled out four crumpled dollars, and said, "I have $8.00 dollars, father could I buy one hour of your time."

Hi Neil,

Do you have any particular monsters in mind? :)

NO, don't answer that.

Best,

Tigger
