Comments on: Catching bayonets, what could go wrong? http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2011/10/23/catching-bayonets-what-could-go-wrong/ News, but not the serious kind Fri, 16 Dec 2011 14:56:44 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: uncarastus http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2011/10/23/catching-bayonets-what-could-go-wrong/comment-page-1/#comment-416794 Mon, 24 Oct 2011 20:47:31 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/?p=69908#comment-416794 I find themself staring, for at least an hour, transfixed by those yellow ribbons. I guess that’s why the Eighth and I Marines decided not to take me into their midst. Dave, good eye in noticing that the M16s aren’t current. AllthatJazz, what you see doesn’t exclude one in the chamber! For those that are bad tossers. I MEAN rifle throwers!

Is Lamar going to write more blog posts? Are you training him to be able to substitute for you when you take your next trip to outer space or Camp Juvenile?
