Quite a nicely coordinated bomber raid from Kavieng on Wolei, which is a level 2 AF NW of Truk. This will make it safer to put an AVP at Satawal and make it look like an invasion of Truk is imminent.

What the Hell? Carriers? They can't possibly have come down from the northern Philippine Sea so fast? Sneaky bastards must have detached some carriers. We lose on 15 pt AP and a SC. Could have been worse. Time to retreat to Biak and get out of the war canoes. Somehow we avoided a morning attack and the Kates too. Range perhaps

One time I saw a patient with a dislocation of the 2nd "knuckle" (proximal interphalangeal joint) of the 4th finger. So I gave him a digital block and reduced the thing myself (an extremely gratifying procedure for the doctor and the patient). Evidently it was pricey code and I'm not an orthopedist so some review RN at the insurance company baastaard cesspool, after requesting the chart, denies the claim. 3 1/2months later I get a denial letter....it reads..."dislocation of R 4th figner interphalangeal joint reduced". It reads, "..what is a figner? Please clarify."

Years ago I was having major problems with Kidney Stones, The Doctor wanted to try an experimental test and when his office asked the Insurance company if they would cover it they said maybe.

Why am I getting so many bikini (the garment not the island) and gutter cleaning ads? That seems a rather odd demographic. Good news is the ED ads have stopped.

The bikini ads are there to titillate you into buying their gutter guards? Or the HOA has received a complaint about your man-boobs?

Maybe they figure that his ED is fixed so no they have to titillate him to keep that ED supply fix going. The gutter ads are supposed to remind him where his mind is supposed to be.

what a disaster. The landing troops are spared because they were to Biak already. DO SCTF's react at night. These cruisers STARTED the turn at Biak.

Yes, the cruisers will react at night. It depends upon your task force settings and the commander.

Mostly it depends on the D/L of the enemy TF, no?

How aggressive is the TF commander and what is the aggression setting. Is the TF commander a Halsey or a Chicken Little?

Obviously sometimes ChickenLittle is better.

RADM Willis Lee must have ordered the task force to disengage from a life boat!

My point was that if you have no D/L on the enemy, there is no react. Even a weak D/L might not trigger a react if the TF makeup is not detected. Even Halsey wouldn't take a strong TF six hexes to catch a tiny minesweeper or SC.
