Actually, it's easy.

That patch that "tank" is "torching" (apparently using a lesser grade fuel) is only about 2" wide (5 cm)...

Those tanks were apparently therefore made in China in a plastic die-cast model factory. Probably about 1/144 scale.

I feel sorry for the blown flamethrower unit - maybe they should return it to Bic and get a replacement. Not even good enough to call a Collibri.

Remind me to wear some asbestos stockings when they're on the "attack"... wouldn't want to singe my toenails...

Health and herring

Leader
Wednesday August 31, 2005
The Guardian

The Dutch have a proverb along the lines that "if the herring is around, the doctor is far away". The claimed health-giving properties of this oily fish would have come as no surprise to Hendrikje van Andel-Schipper who has just died in her sleep aged 115, the oldest recorded person in the world. Mrs Van Andel-Schipper, a former needlework teacher who was born on June 29 1890, believed that a daily helping of herring had helped her lead a long and healthy life.

Article continues
Herring is a versatile fish and is particularly popular in Norway. It can be eaten raw, pickled, cooked or smoked, whether split as a kipper or eaten whole as a bloater. The smell of a smoked herring is so strong that the fish is sometimes used to create a false scent to induce hunting dogs to lose a trail - hence the red herring. They are also eaten young in the form of whitebait. Herring have been fished commercially for over 2,000 years and in Britain have provided hundreds of thousands of jobs from Penzance to Stornoway. Many towns and villages grew rich from catching, processing and selling herring, even though the romance of going to sea was always countered by the extreme danger to which fishing communities exposed themselves in an activity that suffered well over 10 times the number of accidents recorded for mining, traditionally the most dangerous land-based industry in the UK.

Whether Mrs Van Andel-Schipper owed her longevity to her daily dose of herring is a moot point as we do not know how long she would have lived if her diet had been different. But we do know that eating fatty fish such as herring is considered very beneficial by most doctors as part of a healthy diet. The trouble is that such diets are threatened by the decline of fishing in the North Sea and by the seemingly unstoppable march of fast food outlets. A herring a day certainly did wonders for Mrs Van Andel-Schipper, just as its British equivalent - "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" - has improved the health of many people people here. A combination of the two would surely prove formidable.

Health and America

America's No. 1 Health Problem: Overweight but Undernourished

© Interview With Dr. Anthony Conte
Interviewed By Richard A. Passwater Ph.D.

You know it for a fact -- Americans are overweight but undernourished. Obesity is a major health problem increasing the risk in almost one out of every three Americans for heart disease, cancer, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, stroke, gout, gall bladder disease, osteoarthritis, some forms of cancer, sleep apnea, etc. [1,2] There is even good evidence that "calorie restriction" can lead to better health and longer life in laboratory animals. [3] The health care costs to this country of the morbidity related to obesity were estimated at $39 billion in 1986, and about $30 billion a year is spent in the U. S. in efforts to lose or control body weight. [4,5]

Countless educators have tried to convince Americans that all they have to do is to eat a "balanced diet" (pray tell what that might be) and reduce their calories. But these educators don't live in the real world. They ignore the fact that the average American eats too much junk and not enough whole foods. They ignore the fact that the average American eats too much fat and calories, and can't stop eating at the suggested limit. Every time an "expert" comes out with a new theory, another "expert" proves it wrong. As Dr. F. Xavier Pi-Sunyer editorialized in the Journal of the American Medical Society, "Decreasing food intake and increasing activity seems an easy formula, yet it is proving extremely difficult to implement." [6]

Heli, it sort of works along this logic...


"Pol Pot killed one point seven million Cambodians, died under house
arrest, well done there. Stalin killed many millions, died in his bed, aged
seventy-two, well done indeed.

And the reason we let them get away with it is they killed their own people. And we're sort of fine with that. Hitler killed people next door. Oh, stupid man. After a couple of years we won't stand for that, will we?" Eddie Izzard

Hey, fishboy.

First, let's get a few things straight.

Dividing the income of Norway by the 4 people who actually live there is not a fair comparison to a nation of over 200 million people (a lot of which left fucking Norway for obvious reasons...and they are welcome as long as they learn Spanish and stop eating canned fish). The fact that we are only a few thousand dollars (did you notice you used Yankee dollars and not Gefeldafish or whatever the hell your worthless currency is) under Norway is not a big surprise. I'm amazed the difference isn't greater given the faulty logic you start with.

Reading some book by some Norwegian outcast that says America sucks is not a big surprise either. You simply join the list of dozens of other really jealous countries.

Last but not least, you fly American fighter jets, you just did a graphic with American tanks, you and your unworthy country counted on us to help you avoid goosestepping during Kindergarten and, the final irony is that you are posting to an American website about an American event held in America (yes, a shitty place in America but American goddammit)....why don't you start BurningHerring and see how many fuckers from Europe show up. I'm sure you can come up with an effigy of the then current American president to burn UNTIL some bully comes along and then put it away quietly while you beg us to come save your sorry, herring-eating asses yet again.

Don't worry....we'll be there....with Big Macs and Apache helicopters...and the Delta force...and whatever else it takes to get you back to the wooden shoes and dikes and tulips and pickled herring and women with unshaved armpits....that's just the way were are...kind of sad I'll admit.

Bully!!!!!!

AHHHWmmmm (yawn) Shit, where am I... oh hell this is Eplaya! Damn looks a bit different in FY06 paint.

Ah! good to be back. Waht's this about Norwegians? Hell, I spent time in Norway! Let's see Gul and Torpo Moen, Hemsdall and Oslo of course... great city Oslo... lousy Pizza, but GREAT city.

Oh, hey, nice poster up there Major! And BB Dahlink! So good to see you- and Heli, my old trenchmate- you are looking well.


I'm just up from the bunker for a moment- must get back to a few phone calls... those North Koreans HATE to be on hold you know... and Fidel has left 3 messages on my machine. Hell, I'll be back soon. We have work to do for Operation Playa Storm 2006.

...and the 40 ton aquevit & herring supply barrel doesn't run dry! even then they make a wonderful target for a cheap missile fired by some pimply faced teenaged boy sitting safely in a command bunker fondling his joystick as he "plays" video war with a predator or some such (game over).

Hmmm....wasn't this the period that Mr. Colt and friends were busy turning out multi-shot revolvers and then lever action repeating rifles (and the "winning" of the west here)? And I believe there was a gatling gun in there somewhere... (talk about laying on soom serious doom!)

Not to diminish the breech loading experiments, argueably it was the foundation for later repeating rifles.
