  1. The link is from Steel Beasts which deals with modern tanks, but many of the formations depicted have been around since the 40s. Scroll down to Herring Bone formation. http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php/Formations
  2. The proper way to eat the egg mre option was dowse it in hot sauce. The introduction of mini bottles of Tabasco to MREs was greeted with much rejoicing.
  3. Yeah I think the takeaway for Ukraine is don't count on the US for anything more substantial than thoughts and prayers and maybe an anecdote about how 12 year old Joe Biden shook his fist when the the German planes flew over his house on their way to bomb Pearl Harbor.
  4. We usually mixed a couple packets of coffee powder with a packet of cocoa powder and a couple of the powdered "creamer" some people would add a sugar packet or two as well. It was cooked in a canteen cup over the tank exhaust. It wasn't the best cup of coffee but it delivered a sufficient dose of caffeine and sugar. At some point commercial instant coffee started showing up instead of the generic powdered version. I don't know whether it was better or worse since we drank it the same way.
  5. During ODS when we had hot chow, it frequently came with a large container of hot water and a box of tea bags, usually Twinnings. When chow was over Top gave the box to whoever wanted it. It made a nice change/addition to MRE coffee.
  6. Prisoners experimented on in Arkansas without their consent. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/4-arkansas-inmates-sue-unknowingly-receiving-ivermectin-treat-covid-rcna12256
  7. How does that wiki article show that? He has an entire page devoted to him on the Social Security Administration site. Note the address https://www.ssa.gov/history/fcspeech.html I remember reading about him in school. He may not be remembered especially fondly but he certainly hasn't been erased. https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/features/holocaust-coughlin/
  8. I use it in these https://www.liquor.com/recipes/boulevardier/
  9. Does Germany have some weird national cannibal fetish, or do guys just do a better job of catching yours?
  10. I think the worst mistake GL made was that he subtitled the first movie Episode 4. Based on what was released over the next 30+ years it was something he did with absolutely no thought of ever making another SW movie.
  11. Another illustration of the effect of the Iron Law of Bureaucracy Pournelle’s iron law considers organizations as being made of two types of people: “First, there will be those who are devoted to the goals of the organization…Secondly, there will be those dedicated to the organization itself. The Iron Law states that in every case the second group will gain and keep control of the organization. It will write the rules, and control promotions within the organization.”
  12. Yeah, I wouldn't mind moving to east BFE Iowa at some point in the future. The major hold back on that is that I need a reliable high speed connection for my job.
  13. Pretty much agree, I think these days that mask mandates boil down to "We need to be seen to be doing something" theater. I was talking to my boss yesterday and asked him how the holiday break was and he said it was restful and oh by the way his whole family tested positive for covid in almost the same tone as if he was saying they all got colds.
  14. I discovered some very comfortable KN95 masks, the best feature is they don't fog my glasses. Breathing through them is so easy that I figure they are completely useless against covid but they are good enough for the rare occasion that I go somewhere that requires a mask.
