take Meiktila and all supply stops flowing to Mandalay .. as does the retreat route . first stop is Magwe ..It does not look like the IJA have prepared a secondary fall back Line of resistance

Edit: I posted simultaneously with the Cap .. a paradrop into an empty Meiktila is a coup de gras to this situation


While true that taking Meiktila (sp?) would cut off supply to Mandalay (and jeapordize the retreat route), I wouldn't assume it was unprotected without some dedicated local recon. Cap'n-you got some eyes in the sky there and at Taung Gyi?

As a Jap player, I love Taung Gyi as a regional base. Very helpful having road and rail access into the Mandalay-Meiktila (sp?) area whilest still protected by dense jungle.


The Cap is right see Post #: 12991 The LYB's own Lashio .. however supply would reduce dramatically and I am not sure how many turns it would take for the supply pulse to establish by that route ..

and I agree totally with the thought that Taung Gyi is the anchor pin of a MLR that extends through the jungle hexes south-southwest .. thus my comment no secondary line of resistance yet ...

Aye, but what information do we, the implaccable readers, have regarding recent recon efforts at Taung Gyi and beyond (the secondary WJD MLR)?

Australian Love Poem

Of course I love ya darling, you're a bloody top-notch bird
And when I say you're gorgeous, I mean every single word
So ya bum is on the big side, I don't mind a bit of flab
It means that when I'm ready, there's somethin' there to grab
So your belly isn't flat no more, I tell ya, I don't care
So long as when I cuddle ya, I can get my arms round there
No Sheila who is your age has nice round perky breasts
They just gave in to gravity but I know ya did ya best
I'm tellin' ya the truth now, I never tell ya lies
I think it’s very sexy that you've got dimples on ya thighs
I swear on me nanna's grave now, the moment that we met
I thought you was as good, as I was ever gonna get
No matter what ya look like I'll always love ya dear
Now shut up while the cricket’s on and fetch another beer

Here is wha the Urban Dictionary says about "skeg"

To observe something in Hull

Giz a skeg at the baines as they lark down the tenfoot

Not sure that really helps anyone.

Took a party train down to Del Mar for the races yesterday to celebrate my brother/sister's b'day (twins). Bet on 7 races and patronized the Captain Morgan fake beachside palapa-bar then went to Fidels for food and margaritas then home on a party bus.

It was fun but a mere mortal needs to take a nap, but one dare not lest the other partiers try to toss popcorn in one's open mouth while one sleeps.

I picked the two non-favorite winners on the first two races and then a place bet on a real longshot in the third.

Naturally, as a proponent of the scientific method and, having already started the 2nd rum drink, I advanced the hypothesis that "I can't ******* lose!"

Sadly, this hypothesis had to later be discarded.

N=1 .. you know one of the worst assumptions is to discard H1 and accept H0 .. a Beta error .. I might suggest a larger more statistically significant sample ..

Sanchez actually played on my sons' football team in high school (do the math).


I was not that impressed. His dad was one of those "groom from birth for greatness" types which annoy the living crap out of me. He switched schools to "further his future career" so I hired a Gypsy woman to put a hex on him. He played for Mission Viejo which went 27-1 but they had a running back that would run for 300 yds per game. When you have an absolutely dominant running back like that you can toss the passes underhanded and they all work. I tried to find the Gypsy woman to get my money back. She was gone. Last football season I saw her at Pavillions with a barefoot girl pretending she was a Bosnian refugee..

Gypsy woman: Please sir, we are Bosnian Chreestians and were forc-ed to leave our couuuuntry by thee mooslims. <extends upturned palm, apparently not recognizing me>

FAM: Are you sure that wasn't the other way around?

Gypsy woman: Yes, we are shooo-ur.

FAM: <fished out a 1> OK, leave the hex on.

I just discovered that we can "upgrade" some A-36 Mustangs in New Jersey to P-35's. I think we can free up a squadron-worth of A-36. They have to be better than the P-40B's we are using.

I'd be really careful here, Cap'n. The A-36 was configured / used as a DB, not a fighter. Your P-40Bs are likely a superior fighter platform.

The A-36 has superior durability and guns but a slightly inferior ceiling and climb rate compared to the P-40B.

The problem we have is many, many understrength squadrons in all types. The A-36 might be OK as a point defense role somewhere in Luzon or Manado or some such thing.

I didn't see the facepalm, which I'd recommend in this instance.

I found most of this signs not in the common repertoire but Two important ones not covered ..the ol' trick of stealing a child's nose and putting ones thumb between the index and first finger is an insult and the "OK" sign .. both meaning the same thing ... Probably what the Hispanic squid buried deep in that CVE was making .. everybody is thinking .."Hey were OK!!"
