A lot of veterans can understand this. I can be watching some goofy movie about the military, You're in the Army Now, Catch-22, M*A*S*H, you name it, and I've seen goofier stuff happen in real life.
I worked in a bomb dump for years, and I have never seen a stranger collection of people in my life...very professional job wise, efficient, the ordnance worked everytime; but off duty or when not being watched closely it could get weird..
yep that is true, once when I was in Germany I was driveing a duceand a half and the steering wheel just came on in my hands so I put it back on the sgt said you can't do that. I looked at him and asked do ya want me to take it off again? He said H... no just drive private. Funny how it came off so easy and went back on couldn't do that one again in a life time.
