Acronym for Special Operations Group, a unit created by the Military Assistance Command-Vietnam (MACV), tasked to perform various unconventional warfare missions in conjunction with the CIA. Its personnel were assigned from Army Special Forces, Navy SEALs, Marine Recon, and other units depending on mission requirements.
Missions included deep reconnissance, direct action, downed pilot retrieval, enemy cadre capture and assasination, and any other mission assigned by higher authority.
Members carried a card, called a 'get out of jail free card', stating that the bearer was acting under direct orders of the President and all personnel, regardless of rank, were to give the bearer their full cooperation.
During the later stages of the conflict, the name was changed to Studies and Observation Group in order to mask the unit's true nature from inquiring reporters.
The unit was the most highly decorated unit in the war, as well as one with the highest casualty rate, due to the highly dangerous and sensitive nature of the missions.
Most SOG units, known as 'recon teams', or 'RTs', were named for states or snakes.
|45.||100 mile an hour tape|
Army slang for what civilians commonly call duct tape. The actual army name for it is olive drab green reinforcement tape which is what you would need to call it if you were to order it from the army supply store (GSA).more...
The story goes that during WWII the army asked Johnson & Johnson to develop a seal that would keep moisture out of their ammo cans. J&J answered with OD green reinforcement tape. It is said that the tape was so effective at keeping moisture out that water would bead off it like "water off a duck's back" earning it the name "duck tape". Duck tape would end up having multiple uses in the military, though; with supply short during WWII, duck tape became the military's answer to fixing equipment in the field. Seeing how effective, efficient, and versatile a roll the tape played in the military, J&J marketed the tape to civilians as a fix all. The tape became known as "duct tape", but I'm not sure if this is because the most common usage was to hold ducts together or because civilians misheard the name.
Throughout the history of the military, supply was always an issue, and in the event that GI's didn't have the proper tools to fix something they would use duck tape. As a fix all, duck tape was so effective that it was said it could hold a jeep together travelling at 100 mph, hence the common army name "100 mile an hour tape." Ask anyone from the army what it is and they'll tell you.
100 mile an hour tape is a part of army (military) lifestyl...
Irkens live in a height-based society ruled by a single dictator (or in the present case, a pair of dictators). The leader, the Tallest of the Irkens, has complete control over the Empire and can do anything he/she wants. While the Tallest do have supreme power, their kingdom is pretty much a fully automated machine. They do not have to put much effort into ruling, because the Irken Empire runs itself. Irk itself is like a giant computer under the surface. The Tallest don't even have to make very many decisions as they have the control brains to serve as the thinkers. The main job of the Tallest is to keep the Irkens in line and make sure THE IRKEN MACHINE is running smoothly.
Official Irken Currency: monies (may be spelt moneys) -Irken coins have pictures of the Tallest on them
Irken birthing and mentality
Irken birthing is a key aspect of how the Irken Empire functions the way it does. Irkens are not born naturally, but instead in a huge birthing facility under the surface of Irk. Irken fetuses develop in the many tubes that line the walls until they are at the right stage for 'hatching.' Automated machines remove the tube from the wall, crack it open to drop the young Irken Smeet to the ground, then place its Pak into its back. Why are Irkens born this way? Besides being an easy way to keep a constant supply of soldiers for the military, it gives the Empire complete control over its people. From birth, Irkens are fed all the in...
originally derived from the Greek bottomus numbius, a bible conference is a series of church meetings held every evening, with the entire conference typically lasting an entire week. technically, in order to be considered a true bible conference, the Greek word agape must be defined at least twice by every speaker in the conference. the only case in which this requirement is waived is if one of the speakers has cerebral palsy.
in the event that the speaker with cerebral palsy defines the word agape more than once in a sermon, that conference is then referred to as a Super Bible Conference, and revival is required to break out at that church for a period of no less than one business week, after which, church operations should continue as normal.
milo: dude, you wanna come to a bible conference?
teddy: probably not.
milo: David Ring is gonna be there...
teddy: oh why didn't you say so!

Chuck Taylor All-Stars, also referred to as "Chucks,"1 are canvas and rubber shoes produced by Converse. They were first produced in 1917 as the "All-Star," Converse's attempt to capture the basketball shoe market. They were not particularly popular until basketball player Chuck Taylor adopted them as his preferred shoe. He was so impressed with the design that he became the shoe's leading salesman. After proposing a few changes to the shoe, the shoe got its current name and Chuck Taylor's signature on its ankle patch.allso known as the og shoe and the emo bootmore...
Consumers demanded more variety from the shoe - particularly with respect to colors in order to match basketball teams - so colored and patterned shoelaces became popular to complement the two colors, black and white, available before 1966. Afterwards, more colors and styles became available. Low-top or "Oxford", high-top, and later knee-high, versions were produced. More materials were offered for the construction, including leather, suede, vinyl, denim, and hemp. Some versions of the shoe were offered without laces, held up instead by elasticWhen Converse was bought by Nike and operations were moved from the United States to overseas, the design saw a few alterations. The fabric is no longer 2-ply cotton canvas but 1-ply "textile" and many wearers have noticed different patterns of wear.
