The only crime I see here is a grown man being this much of an attention whore. Twitter was a mistake...

It's not a crime to be a douchebag. Although it should be.

Looks like we may have a challenger for the record, folks!

Ah the good ole P-38. Somewhere with my vintage mess gear, I have a few of these - new in-wrapper from the Vietnam era. And of course one I opened and used. Still works to this day. Somehow, it's still sharp! And hasn't rusted...

I always carry one. Comes in handy quite often.

I remember those things. We got one in every rat pack during exercises. Didn't know it had a name other than "tin opener".

There is a slightly larger version called ... wait for it .....



a P-51



The designation came from the body length in millimeters. 38 and 51.




The endless parade of odd information you pickup during a career in the military.

There is no indication the kid is a snot nosed. (if she was she would have told him to GF himself, and make some toast or cereal)
Allowing a kid to be hungry, and struggle for 6 hours is brutal parenting.
There are better ways to teach your children, especially if you love them.

I didn't watch the video and I never timed myself, but you can go pretty fast with a P38. And like I said, you could keep it with you on a key chain and it was good for a lot more than opening cans.


SALUTE TO ALL!

It's built for portability, not speed.

I used to cook family meals a few times a week, as did my older brother.

Same here, Mon to Fri, when both parents were working as did my younger brothers.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.
