Screenshot of the Southern Ryukyu's (with hexes)? Miyako-jima crossed out and Horycrappo-jima substituted?

Little TM saying World's Worst AAR/M&M Enterprises. Also, how about the bit more edgy "My army randed at Horrycrapo-jima and all I got was rousy T-shirt"



Admiral Lord SPrior;

How much is the mark-up? Don't post it here, send me an email.

I would humbly suggest using the 'find the tank' puzzler with the "I landed/stepped..." phrase on the back and the M&M logo on the front left breast area (I know that is going to cause confusion).

I think an M&M logo on a polo would sell well if there were any professionals about.

"Find the tank" was too difficult, nobody spotted one.

I think first a LLC. would be in order to avoid the potentially costly lawsuits from the AJDL (Anti-Japanese Defamation League)
Secondly 25% is the usual management profit margin - lets say double it?

Hey! Somebody clicked over the odometer. If you can prove it was you perhaps you could receive a "Horycrappo-jima" wife beater.

I tried to look up "Horycrappo-jima" in the Urban Dictionary. It isn't there but I found this hilarious industry standard, analogous to "JPEG" or 75mm ammunition.

quote:


ass-tag convention



September 21


The accepted standard that the tagged side of a towel is for designated nether-regions while the non-tagged side is reserved for the face and hair. This convention is used to avoid cross-contamination and is to be assumed as general practice. Practical in situations where one must use a borrowed or foreign towel.

"I forgot my towel in the shower and had to use my roommates. Hopefully he observes the ass-tag convention."

Hmm. So before guests stay over one should, for the sake of bathroom humor, remove the tags...

*************Pranning*************

I found Gen Horace Feller's 41st ID lolling about in Tacoma. They are probably planting saplings for the Forest Service or something. Also, the tail end of the Americal Div and 43rd ID are out digging clams at Pismo Beach. Not to mention 2/3rd of the 24th ID and 2/3rd of the 25th ID on Oahu and 7th and 43rd ID getting ready for the Gay Pride Parade in Frisco.


The problem is all of these units need to be converted and we have only 196 PP's.

In the meantime, unrestricted units detailed for a landing in the Kuriles and Sakhalin are 21 days out from 50% prep.

How much intel can you get on a base just from patrolling with a USN sub nearby?

Indeed, the IJN cruiser force did arrive at Port Blair. We couldn't stay, but the Southern escape route would have been better in retrospect. (I blame the staff ) They might even come after us, though they would have to wonder what we have at Ramree.

Our lads at Karenko. JJ managed to get another 22 Ronsons ashore yesterday. Not sure how that happened. We have PT boats on station there now. Don't think 22 water-logged Ronsons can drive us off. More friendlies coming ashore tonight.

We have a large number of transports trying to unload across the beach at Batan Is and some LCM's unloading at Horycrappo-jima. No sign of Kirishima. She probably had to go back for ammo. Still, we are weak in surface strength and they could hurt us, especially at Batan Is.

Sent some subchasers after an unescorted AK offloading at Kume-jima (near Okinawa)

Regarding the sub thing and Intel...

I know nothing directly about this. Here is my suspicion. If I were an Intel guy then I might call it (in the movies at least) my assessment. The NSA would call it "type faster, bozo, we're reading you in real-time and getting bored".

We know that there are zillions of details to the code that the devs are forbidden to release, so that's part of the landscape. It is acknowledged that there are loads and loads of semi-randomized things influenced by other, relevant to Gary Grigsby, things.

As Allies, I have gotten 'sightings' of IJ TFs a few hexes beyond the search range of the aircraft on naval search in the area. It might have been that I observed wrong and the aircraft was searching to the range of the sighting but the range-arc drawn on the screen maxed out and didn't go that far. But my interpretation was of the code yielding a radio/other electronic emissions intercept sighting.

Whether that extends to subs around bases or not...???

Oh, it works all right. Here is one or two days of intel-gathering by USS Sunfish after being ordered to do something useful instead of the idiotic patrol box in the northern Sea of Okhotsk. This is from 40 miles off the base. Could I get more by entering the hex? For obvious reasons I don't want to tip our hand. Just outfitted a USN "VD" squadron at Pearl with PB4Y-1P's. When the time comes, they can move to Amchitka and get some real intel, but can't do that yet.

The graphic reads "1/2". Does that mean 2 is the most you can get? What I really need is some kind of guess on troop strength there.

The sub can probably get good data on how many troops like to swim offshore.

Not very many in the Sea of Okhotsk in May, I imagine.

***** Brighouse, Yorkshire******

Mrs Grimethorpe: Ohh, 'Enry, our Dorothy has become a VD nurse! To think, she'll be handling those diseased todgers.

Mr Grimethorpe: Give me that letter. She's become a VAD nurse* you daft old bat.

*Violet Jessop, British ocean liner stewardess trained as a VAD nurse after the outbreak of World War I. She had been a stewardess aboard the RMS Titanic when it sank in 1912 and was also aboard the hospital ship HMHS Britannic (the Titanic's sister ship) as a British Red Cross nurse aboard when it sank in 1916. Gen dit.

Import Safety Tip: If you book a cruise and the neighbor in the next cabin is named Jessop, you should fake appendicitis or something. Just get the Hell off the ship.

I'm pretending you didn't read the manual. Detection 1/2 means the Detection Level is 1, the Maximum Detection Level is 2. And since I'm pretending, MDL doesn't mean the max possible, but something like the max achieved (but that's not entirely accurate, either -- it's really a very unfortunate term).

Right. We all know the the maixum achievable detection level is not 2. Based on game play it seems to mean something more akin the "Maxium Detection Level Achieved Since the Last Epsiode of Breaking Bad Was On". Often the second number is "9". Sometimes it's '14".


It reminds me of the hated "Alternative Minimum Tax" which really should be termed "Alternative Maximum Tax"

I do confess to an irrational hatred of the AMT...no..wait..it IS rational.


If JJ is going to dig in North and Northeast of Pegu and Rangoon, trying to hold on to Burma...perhaps we should oblige them..sort of.

Thanks to the sacrifices of the RN, Port Blair is now a garden spot with plenty of T-bones and cold beer. Well, maybe Bully Beef with clots of yellow-orange congealed animal fat and warm beer. Yummy!

I fear Rord Admirah Fabertong may have been taken by Viking raiders again. Hope they took him as an oarsman and not a sex slave.
