Bloody elephants.

If it isn't hard enough trying to fight a war in the jungle imagine how difficult it is having to deal with a pack of angry jungle elephants. Everyone has the right to be upset, these elephants perhaps more than most.

Are two Stinsons better than one?

This question has been bothering real men for a long time. It is spoken quietly about in bars and argued at the finest universities. Men at bus stops often seek each others' views concerning the appropriate number of Stinson Sentinels. This is something real men discuss in real time. Other men who cannot talk about this are betraying other men.

Are your flaps full down?

Perhaps our friend's flaps are a little too far down and he should stop pulling so hard. Or perhaps it is time to ease up. Idioms aside. Once you've crashed through the canopy, produced a landing of sorts, blatantly discarded the wings, and cut the fuel lines it's time for a stop don't you think? So time to leave those flaps alone and have a little lie down.

How do we know they are not Australians?

They have the right hats (sort of) and they have the right square jaws. The one thing wrong is that they still have their shirts on. Sure they look like Australians but they are  not. They are Chindits. Tough angry older poms.

I imagine otherwise...

...I think Sam would have preferred to live a rich and full or pious and devout or long and wicked life or listless and wasted life (pick the one you prefer) rather than devote his last remaining moments to the thoughts of a disheveled and grim Englishman. Machismo is no substitute for empathy.

One of my favourites.

How could you not love this title? Jungle Snatch! So evocative. So vivid. So much fun. The school boy tittering (there it is again) just goes on and on. No need to draw any inevitable and puerile conclusions where this title sits in the minds of those who should know better.

When things go wrong...

...it's usually the 'little people' who are to blame. Great people don't make mistakes, that's why they are great. If the underlings were any good they wouldn't be underlings. They would be leaders not followers. In other words they would be in front or on top and not behind or underneath.
So when things go wrong the attribution of blame cannot be put down to circumstance alone. The difference between the great and not even great is that the great do not like those beneath them.

Cover of the Week.

Cover perfection comes to us again this time from, Sniper! War Picture Library 160, published 3 September 1962. Fantastic artwork that throws a story your way complete with drama, backstory, and resolution in a few square inches. Bold and direct you know what you're in for from the beginning and it's exactly where you want to go.

A study in ugly.

Ugly in spirit and ugly by nature. Some people are just unpleasant. There's pretty unpleasant, plain unpleasant, and ugly unpleasant. Not so much a spectrum but morass of nastiness. Really there's no need for this type of behaviour. However some people are compelled towards it. Just as some people are nice others simply are not. Being misunderstood is not an excuse.

Complete mental blankness!

Good lord! You don't need a traumatic experience to have one of those. Age, at any age can contribute to that situation. Disease as predetermined and as unfair as it can be is another unfortunate factor. Over physical and mental stimulation doesn't need to be traumatic to lead to memory loss. Likewise under stimulation wouldn't be to much help either. Of course there is always alcohol. More than one too many sherbets will always do the job. There are methods, including self choice, but they are all too sordid to mention here.
By the way where did you get those groovy glasses from Doc?
