Distress too strong a word? Absolute fear not an apt enough description? Permanent disfigurement from perspex splinters not worrying enough? Just missing out on being ripped apart by cannon shells not thrilling enough? Well if it's action you want, it's action you got. Some men look for action. These men are just silly.

How terrorists view us

The scruffy have always despised the neat. Is this a historical truth or anomaly? The scruffy would say it would be the other way around, that the neat have never liked them.

No doubt, neatness stands for order and discipline. Qualities that need exercise in order to be retained. Scruffiness rejects those constructs. 
Neat terrorists create an image that is difficult to reconcile and usually end as objects of ridicule as the people they are trying to replace are usually already neat. Scruffy terrorists trying to replace the scruffy in power, only perpetuate that the scruffy are unable to exercise discipline or order.

Ideals always need to manifest themselves in outward appearances, otherwise, how would they be known?

OMG another woman!

One issue, two women! Not in the same frame mind you. This woman is also  being ignored and cast in a non-participatory role, yet the woman has a right to be in this picture, she is a nurse after all, but she still isn't doing anything. The distant women are in Air Ace Picture Library, 329, Contact!
If there is an issue where women speak or are active it will be noted with a considerable degree of jubilation.

OMG a Woman!

There are women in pocket war comics, even though they rarely make an appearance, they are really only there to be ignored. They don't speak. They don't participate. They are not acknowledged. They never fight. They never speak. They are never victims or heroes. It really is quite odd. Surely there were women around when these comics were drawn. Weren't there?

Spitfires are not very good

It is a well known fact that the Spitfire was not very good at staying above water. Yet this fact and many others have been kept from us. It was a hopeless subaqueous  deathtrap that made it more dangerous to the men who were forced to fly it than to the enemy.  The Germans had a popular and taunting nickname for the Spitfire and regularly called them Das Flugzeug, das nicht schwimmen kann. Soggy Spitfire pilots who were rescued by the enemy from their sinking planes were often taunted by their captors with these cruel words. Yet this is not taught in history books.
Don't let the lies continue. The truth is out there if you are brave enough to look for it.

Captain Obvious

Captain Obvious and Mr Know it All make a fine pair. Imagine being stranded at sea in a very small life raft with them. Somebody would be over the side and be finding the water real soon. It's surprising that between the two of them that they're not already quoting model numbers, serial numbers, the pilot's name, his tailor's name, the squadron's home airfield, the Pantone colour of the Condor, how many kilometres that particular plane has flown, how many miles it has already made, the next date for the engines' grease and oil change, and so on and so on.
We all know men like this, and we may indeed be these men.
