But seeing as Mr B doesn't always have the best record at the range.......I'm sure the tracked vehicle could be fitted with a 105mm cannon, thus meaning I only need one shot to knock the targets down :twisted: thus OEB's skiing speed is negated :lol:

Good to hear things are progressing :D

Regarding the biathlon event, surely you can only be allowed to shoot the other competitors OR use a tracked vehicle. Having both is just plain greedy :twisted:

But the usual NATO tests show my choice to be superior. Not only that, have you any idea of how I purchase a US and then get it over here? Fedex? Vickers is a local company for local people :lol:

It's armour is also better, it's vital that you minimise the risks from rifles used by other biathletes :roll:

You've got a couple of good points there in terms of "Buy Local", but getting the Abrams to you isn't a big deal as you're going to need a C5 Galaxy with either of them to get to the racing anyway.

At least that way you'll have the best "team bus". :lol:

Isn't that a cost option? :lol:

Could be other issues though. Latest reports have said that some biathletes have taken to carrying grenade launchers. I'm thinking speed rather than armour may be a good choice :? :lol:

That is true, but there's no British biatheles. I mean no British biathletes left.

The Tommys were all killed in a afternoon competition at Holmenkollen Norway in 2002. :shock:

It was a shameful event, but how could the Brits had known, the brute participants of other countries don't respect the Tea Time seize fire. :roll:

As long as your blood is blue, no worries. Just watch out for those paparazzis. :roll:

I'll be watching out for Mercedes Benz' and drunk chauffeurs too :lol:

Had my first appointment in Sheffield yesterday :) Had a few tests carried out but will be going back in 4-6 weeks for more specialized one's including MRI, High-Res CT, CTPA, and a Right Heart Catheter to get accurate bp levels in....the right side of the heart.

It's times like these that I bet you're glad to be British. All those tests look like a $20,000 bill in the US :? :lol:

+ infinity to that. Over the course of mangled leg fixin', the Señor Bonecutter set me up with some external bone growth thingee. The cost, according to the company selling it was $3500, but since I didn't have insurance at the time, they only charged me $350. So how about that markup for insurance companies? :shock:

Lucky for us here, in the ol' US, the government policy is that only the very wealthy and the very poor deserve medical coverage. If you're on the financial edge, don't get at work, or are unlucky enough to have pre-existing conditions, the government believes that it's prolly better to let you die that way there's nothing to worry about any more and you won't be a burden on society.

Yup. We're an economic first world country with third world access to medical care.
