do you know what tank that is?
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Challenger? IIRC the chevron is some kind of Anglophone military Company designation, A, B, C, D depending on orientation. Perhaps one of the folks on this board who has actually served in an armored unit can enlighten us further.
