I know that every solder should be ably to work as an infantry man but I think that this goes bit too far...

That reminds me of the "Willy and Joe" cartoon of a dogface (from his foxhole) asking a general (standing in full view of the enemy) to inspire the troops somewhere else. :P

After a few weeks in Afghanistan you'll think you could live several lifetimes without ever seeing another derelict BTR, BRDM, BMP1 or T55/62.

They make river rafts out of hulls, speed-humps from tracks and my personal favourite, Afghan telecom using a BRDM by the roadside as a billboard. You name it they'll turn a tank into it.

Don't they have value as scrap? Why hasn't someone melted them down?

A fairly ballsy young ensign at the 2009 USNA graduation giving the CinC a chest-bump.

Who they gonna sell them to, and how are they gonna pick them up?
You probably had a brief window of opportunity in the mid 00's but thats about it. Not worth the effort for now.

It is not what it looks like. The girl is part of a troupe of dancers hired for Barbara Bush's 84th (!) birthday party at the place in Maine. Still they both seem to be having a good time. (Please note his socks.)

A photostream of people protesting Obama someplace. Politics aside, there are some clever (and some stupid) signs. (I like "Obama, Bring Back Arrested Development.) Also some pretty girls. Worth a look.

Taurus makes a pistol that takes either .410 shotgun shells or .45 Long Colt ammunition. Good for either knocking down badgers in the backyard or skunks in the living room!

I've seen the above photos before; the caption was that they were of a demo of the machine's power. If real, the operator certainly has confidence in his equipment!
