Military Logic

There are new polls up today. One for what Ninsi and I should do this weekend, since it's Valentine's Day and all. And the other for Jessy, since she's having baby name issues. If you like a name that's not on the list, leave a comment, and maybe I'll change the poll.

For the interested parties, Godzilla did not win the last poll. He was ahead til near the end, when Mothra made a last minute push and beat him out by two votes. The Blob also managed to garner as many votes as did the big leezard. Sorry Ryan. Must be this Mtv generation that just doesn't see the greatest of Godzilla that you do. Apparently though, most everyone thinks King Kong is a big pussy, since he was dead last. Even behind Apache Chief.

And, as the title says, check out the extended entry for 21 rules of Military Logic.

1. If the enemy is in range, so are you.
2. Incoming fire has the right of way.
3. Don't look conspicuous: it draws fire.
4. The easy way is always mined.
5. Try to look unimportant, they may be low on ammo.
6. Professionals are predictable, it's the amateurs that are dangerous.
7. The enemy invariably attacks on one of two occasions: When you're ready for them and when you're not ready for them.
8. Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy someone else to shoot at.
9. If your attack is going well, you have walked into an ambush.
10. Don't draw fire, it irritates the people around you.
11. The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.
12. When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend.
13. If it's stupid but works, it isn't stupid.
14. When in doubt, empty the magazine.
15. Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than you.
16. Anything you do can get you shot. Including doing nothing.
17. Make it too tough for the enemy to get in and you can't get out.
18. Mines are equal opportunity weapons.
19. A Purple Heart just proves that you were smart enough to think of a plan, stupid enough to try it, and lucky enough to survive.
20. Don't ever be the first, don't ever be the last and don't ever volunteer to do anything.
21. Five-second fuses only last three seconds.
22. It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed.

damn dungeon - still not done yet. *sigh*

amy:

Please hit the Demigoblin for me and tell him he needs comments, dagnabit. And take my suggestion to heart about nice dinner, then strip club.

I will certainly take to heart your comment about dinner and a strip club. But I'm also gonna be annoyingly girlfriendish, and accept that our/his friends aren't gonna like me much, by saying that I want him all to myself on V-day.
I'm not sharing.

amy, email me and tell me how to get comments to work on that damn site! dre@bugtribe.net (should work) if not demigoblin66@yahoo.com or IM me at "demigoblin"
