2. Tiphill

So, really, what is the point of the jury if people keep coming back with socks? Not that I care that they come back, but why hide them in the first place?

5. I played sand golf in Bahrain once

You're given a square piece of astroturf for the fairways and the greens are sand mixed with oil. Not much run on the ball.

11. Neat!

No, I've never been in the military. I ran my own consulting business in Saudi for 6 years and spent frequent weekends in Bahrain drinking and sampling the local wares. Dubai had much better wares at the time as it was shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union, and there were particularly nice exported wares from Russia and the Ukraine. However, we would have to fly to Dubai whereas you could drive to Bahrain and the former Soviet republics did export to there as well.

12. The Iranians kept threatening to Mine the Straits of Hormuz

Lloyds of London kept threatening to suspend insurance on any Tankers transiting the Straits if Iran did it. The Unit I was with did Sea Mine clearance so they kept us out there as a countermeasure.

The Iranians ended up laying Mines (after I left) and they paid the price when US Aircraft caught them doing it.

7. We've seen this complaint before against both Bush and Obama.

It's getting old. We need some new talking points that aren't nearly two decades old.

13. If you're going to go into

the sock drawer you should at least pick one that isn't monogrammed "TH". Btw, did you ever get that patch kit delivered?
