    OK so it is a big bomb but couldn't a Lancaster carry a bigger bomb load than that. And could someone please explain why the USA bomb costs so much to manufacture?... it's only a bomb.....albeit a rather large one.

    Not really sure what the cave complex resembles now. I guess we could go "Vietnam retro" and re-introduce the tunnel rat option to the small unit tactics playbook.

    I suppose we'll always have people crazy enough to do that.

    A friend of mine tried to pick her up in Manhattan. He didn't recognize her until after she left. Said she was real nice and down to earth. She had a beer.

    Funny how that works. I once had a 40 minute conversation with another bored husband outside the Venetian in Vegas as our respective wives shopped inside. A really great, down to earth guy. Only at the last minute did I learn he was Tony La Russa. Just as well. I hate baseball.

    I hope so! Being a tall guy and more than a little bit claustrophobic, the thought of crawling in those tunnels is well beyond my courage level. That goes for submarines too.

    That was a BIG KaBoom. I wonder what else they have that's classified.

    Stand by.

    I was rejected because my shoulders were too wide, and I had a gun pointed at the CPO making the picks.

    Right you are Owen, he sure does! And if you notice in the other hand, Saint Mattis of Quantico is wielding the "Holy Bayonet". No telling what else he has stashed under the toga.
