Hi there BELLY...

Just to remind you of a little known fact, within the police force, my friend. It's not the man with the scars and the flat nose, we should respect and fear - iI's the man who gave them to him?

Belly'

In your OP,
"Past week, nearly every week has been one of home invasions and bashing of elderly homeowners"

Nothing there about people being "...the thread is about the truly helpless being harmed by the truly worthless?"

You didn't say that to start with,
so as one who is not truly helpless, what would you do if home invaders attacked you?

o sung wu,

The only scar that I have is a "circular gunshot wound, lower angle of the left jaw" (as it says on my Discharge Certificate) the entry wound, to the rere of the left ear, has virtually faded away and was never prominent after it healed up.

Hi there Is Mise...

You're a very lucky man to have been shot with 'ball' ammo in Korea, was it? Especially anywhere around the head. Waste of time you buying any more lottery tickets ol' mate? As it sounds like you've consumed all your luck for life!

I've been more fortunate by all accounts, I've never had any wounds while on overseas service,, other than a deflected 'panji' cut just below the R Knee. Which became infected. I did, however, suffer all manner of tropical illnesses and infections. I'm firmly convinced no European man or women can properly survive, in the tropical jungles of the world.

o sung wu,

Yes, I was really lucky, Korea was my only active service posting.
The doc said that the bullet had burned the wall of the jugular vein, a hair's breadth from a deadly wound.
Funny thing was that it didn't hurt much even though there was plenty of blood, I thought that I'd only been nicked.
The proximity to the vein made it serious though and I was hospitalized, mainly to keep me quiet and handy to help if something went wrong.
Can't say that I didn't enjoy the rest and the clean sheets!!

Well done Is Mise, & thanks.

Yes o sung wu, I agree totally about tropical jungle. I've walked through quite a few, & worked on the edge of them, & they are horrible things. Go into them & the only question is will you die, before your clothes rot off you.

Having seen the huge improvement in the living standard of the locals around Kimbe in New Britain, when jungle was replaced with palm oil plantations, I reckon those who try to prevent such development should be jailed for cruelty to the human race.
