Yes, or hold it exclusively in your right hand if you are one of...well..you know.


Honestly, if you know about the history of the war in the pacific you can pretty well guess. That's what I do.

You also might want to eat more fiber.

there was a time when most games, even the arcade ones came with (some very detailed) manuals

a bygone era...

LOL...ok some sound advice given (quickly adds, none that I didn't already know).

Jorge, your so right, there were some good days where large manuals just helped you feel you had value for money. Long gone days now sadly.

Also, load up the game and copy the manual (PDF) to your favorite smartphone or e-reader and you can read in more places!

But it's printed in shiny paper. Have you ever used waxed toilet paper??

Back in the seventies when I was at primary school, apparently the Queensland education department got a good deal on waxed paper so they bought a warehouse full of the stuff. (Not a bad decision as waxed paper does not deteriorate in damp conditions at the many small country schools with outhouses). However, this particular paper tended to smear rather than collect and you can only imagine the usual result of using the stuff. It was universally detested and unless they were truly desperate, everyone avoided using it or bring in their own supplies. The worst bit was the Ed Dept in their usual frugal style refused to buy replacement paper until existing stocks were used up. I heard they were still issuing the stuff in the Eighties. Probably the best value purchase they ever made.

Waxed TP in PEACETIME??? What idiot ordered that? You would have to be from another planet to think that was a good idea. Number 3 Pea Gravel would have worked better.

You learn something new about this game everyday, as I didn't know the UK edition of the manual was printed in toilet tissue.

I was going to say 600 grit sandpaper. My dad owned a bodyshop. I made sure that we NEVER ran out of TP.

But waxed TP? The question is not what idiot ordered it but what low-grade moron ever thought up the idea in the first place.

We got her to cuss the other day at work. Whatver you save your name in your phone as she repeats it word for word if you ask her "what is my name"...you can imagine what we came up with

I got into an argument with her at home and my wife thought I was the lamest human she has ever met.
