Don't want to miss out on any of that scintillating dialogue.

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

A guy from Nordland, in the northern parts of Norway, finds roman coin from the time of Marcus Aurelius. It's the northernmost finding of roman coin in Norway. He also found a 1000 year old viking sword. Apparently metal detecting has become a big thing here lately.

Next U.S. Navy aircraft carrier to be named after African American Pearl Harbor hero

First thing that came to my mind was if that was the character Cuba Gooding Jr played in the movie Pearl Harbor. It was.

Since this is the random thread, Cuba Gooding Jr went to my high school in Arizona. Not for very long, less than a year, but long enough to be immortalized in a year book and local history.

Did we used to have a military thread? I seem to remember it but I also kinda remember Sinbad playing a genie.

Anyways, the new Space Force uniforms are pretty bad in my opinion. They look like the Army pajamas with the old, old jungle/woodland pattern. I was expecting something a little but more spacey and/or modern. I've seen the arguments in favor but I don't think they hold water. I don't care if they think camo is associated with the military or that because almost all will never go to space that they don't need something more fitting. None of them are likely to be out in the field and needing to blend in either.

Wasted opportunity to do something interesting.

I just saw Tim Tebow got married over the weekend. Well, actually I heard it on SiriusXM, I've got BBC World Morning on while I was in the shower.  Anyway... I thought the news guys said he married Demi Lovato. I was a little surprised because she is kind of trashy and has drug problems. Seems an odd choice for that guy. It wasn't. It was Demi Lee Peters the former Miss Universe.

Ah, but just wait until our boys need to battle stormtroopers on a forest moon of Endor. Make sense then, it will.

DurrHurr! Yeah, thats it!

I'm going to assume you were not laughing at brain injuries. But your initial post comes across that way. So rather than clarifying your point, you are doubling down on the miscommunication, which is standard protocol for you. 

edit: To clarify my question, I am not sure what you are referring to as pathetic. CNN? The Military? The Trump response? Brain injuries? Iran? Footlockers?

34 US service members diagnosed with TBI from Iranian missile strike.

:lol: Pathetic. But I guess they had to come up with something. Im 100% sure that "banging their shins on a footlocker" are under reported too! 

Why's that pathetic ?

Probably not that dissimilar to an IED going off next to your vehicle. One of the hazards of a war zone, alas.
