-Funny Bones Stuff-
Barbara Walters, of 20/20, did
a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan several years before the
Afghan conflict. She noted
that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.
recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind
their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime,
the women now are happy to maintain the old custom.
Ms. Walters approached one of the
Afghani women and asked, 'Why do you now seem happy with an old custom
that you once tried so desperately to change?' The woman
looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said,
of the story: No matter what language you speak or where you
go, BEHIND EVERY MAN THERE'S A SMART
This is quite funny and
obviously written by a former Serviceman - It’s a New Directive for any
war: Send Service Vets over
I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track
down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military.
They've got the whole thing ass-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year
olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn't be able
to join a military unit until you're at least
For starters: Researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex
every 10 seconds. Old guys only think about sex a couple of times
a day, leaving us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to
concentrate on the enemy.
Young guys haven't lived long enough to be cranky, and a
cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. 'My back hurts! I can't
sleep, I'm tired and hungry' We are impatient and maybe letting us kill
some asshole that desperately deserves it will make us feel better and
shut us up for a while.
An 18-year-old doesn't even like to get up before 10 a..m.
Old guys always get up early to pee. Besides, like I said, 'I'm
tired and can't sleep and since I'm already up, I may as well be up
killing some fanatical s..-of-a-b...h.
If captured we couldn't spill the beans because we'd forget
where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial number would be a
would be easier for old guys. We're used to getting screamed and
yelled at and we're used to soft food. We've also developed an
appreciation for guns. We've been using them for years as an excuse to
get out of the house, away from the screaming and
They could lighten up on the obstacle course however. I've
been in combat and didn't see a single 20-foot wall with rope hanging
over the side, nor did I ever do any pushups after completing basic
Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too.
I've never seen anyone outrun a bullet.
An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He's still
learning to shave, to start up a conversation with a pretty girl.
He still hasn't figured out that a baseball cap has a brim to
shade his e yes, not the back of his
These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to
learn a little more about life before sending them off into harm's
Let us old guys track
down those dirty rotten coward terrorists. The last thing an enemy would
want to see is a couple of million pissed off old farts with attitudes
and automatic weapons who know that their best years are already behind
about recruiting Women over 50...with PMS!!! You think
Men have attitudes!!! If nothing else, put them on border patrol...they

To our domestic
terrorists (i.e. political attorneys, politicians, and war capitalist)
you too will not be forgotten in our clean up. Sergeant
