I said a Terminator quote to a buddy and he had no idea. A guy who doesn't watch TV or movies. Sad. He's an audiophile, you have eyes. Use them. I have the Internet and DVDs so I have access to things I WANT to watch, just no TV by choice. I could probably look up that border control show too but I...

I often ate in my room or downtown instead of dining at the Army chow hall at the Defense Language Institute. At that time (74-75) the Army...
No idea has anyone read any of these: but the first of the documents i found included stipulations and regulations for chow hall menu items including this interesting snippet 5. Not more than one gas-forming cooked vegetable such as cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and dried beans a...
Two things I noticed here: 1) Definitely uses a lot of MCI components, or components from group ration kits. Whoever designed this might have a great idea from the 5-in-1 ration before. 2) Bears resemblance to a very early UGR dinner ration, minus the self heaters or tray ration heaters. I'm going ...
