America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. Abraham Lincoln

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. Abraham Lincoln

Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm. Abraham Lincoln

It's basically a tank that can swim really fast and carry 200 tons.

The fastest way to a man's heart? Inch to the right of the breastbone, between the fourth and fifth rib.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.

Ship to shore. Scientists are terrible at naming things, the military is a very close second.

Pretty much - just bigger. Sometimes wonder about designers of mil gear. It floats, can wander up the beach and climb 10 foot high obstructions. Actually pretty neat, it's like a Transformer.
