JJ sends their Nettys over Kai and the Zekes are out of range. This is good for the good guys. The Zekes are flying separately from Ternate

Siamese Road. It's quite touchy because too much activity at any node along the way (Rahaeng, Nakhon, Udon Thani) and the flow slows.

Kratie, further down the road to Saigon has also been seized.

In order to act as a supply hub, a base must posses > 3x the calculated need of the base (after supplying any units at the base).

Right now, for eg., Rahaeng is at 627/137 so that leaves only about 200 lousy points to send downstream this turn (minus whatever units moving on Bangkok consume. Of course, some supply from Moulmein will also move part of the way). Magically, Vinh is up about 1000 units of supply in the last 4 days.

This sounds suspiciously to me like something you would have read verbatim in the manual.

Mandrake made a typographical error. These are the LRMP. Formerly known as the Mummenschanz brigade. Currently commanded by Colonel Shields and Major Yarnell.

The good news is that they bring plenty of toilet paper along with them wherever they go.

Unfortunately, General Marceau became a casualty when he attempted to mime a man being run over by a 10 ton tank.

He mistook the word 'mine' for 'mime'.

So I took a week off after Christmas. I remember it being really fun but I'm not sure of all the details.

I think I mentioned the wedding and the bar in Sunset Beach but, honestly, I'm not sure if it was inside my head or I really said something publicly (this happens often).

Anyway, I go back to work on Monday and it is damn busy so I finish up for the morning and I need something to eat so I drive down the street and decide not to go to In and Out because one of my patients works there and she always says
"Hi, Dr Mandrake" and everyone looks at me like "what are you doing here you ******* hypocrite?"...so I go across the street to Carls Jr and I am looking up at the menu and can't find the $3 burger I ordered last time.

The nice Hispanic young lady behind the counter says..."Can I help you?"

Me: Ummm...I' trying to remember what I ordered last time?

The nice Hispanic young lady: Oh, the California Classic!

Me: THATS IT! How did you know that?

The nice Hispanic young lady: Because that is what you always order.

Now, keep in mind I hadn't probably been there is 2 weeks. How the Hell did she remember that? I wish the drug companies would bring in lunch like they used to the cheap bastards. I blame Michael Moore.

I always thought it was the Mummenweiss brigade? Or Mummenschwartz brigade? Or maybe the Mummenschwantz brigade?

Nah. Technically, they get somebody else to tell the story for 'em. Then it's Munchhausen-by-proxy.
