I’ll say one thing for Jackass Cat. He can take a beating. Sometimes I grab him by the tail and give him a good walloping. He likes it, too, little sicko. As soon as I let him go he just sits down and waits for more attention.
Even non-cat people like him. He is a good dude, not a mean bone in his body. Less’n you’re a mouse.
I just wish people would stop telling him how handsome he is. I am afraid his head will get swole.
You know, when I can’t think of anything to write about, or more likely, just don’t feel like writing, I do what every good milblogger does. I steal stuff from John at The Castle.
Interestingly, with the exception of the M2 .50cal, all these weapons have passed from the inventory, but either a direct replacement or an analogous type weapon can still be found in the infantry (for instance, the 37mm and 57mm anti-tank guns are long gone, but their role is filled today by the Javelin and TOW missiles.
