    It's a way of handling stress. Laugh it off!

    WW II Germany
    Nurses and teenage boys drafted to help are helping unload wounded from an ambulance train that just arrived from the Eastern Front. One youth recalled an incident between injured soldiers and nurses:

    A "walking wounded" with his right arm missing shouted, "Hey sister, I am right-handed. How do I wipe my a**?"
    "You are right handed? Use your right foot," said one of the nurses. Everyone still conscious laughed.
    "You think that's possible?"
    "Listen," she replied, "the Fuhrer said, "For a German soldier, nothing is impossible.' Nothing!" Again wild laughter, soldiers' gallows humor.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll give it a try.

    And the ones who don't handle stress that way? You would deserve to be the back end gun man for Lancaster. That is gallows humour. You could handle stress on your own with nachtjad. In German naturally.

    We used to take popular songs and ... update ... the lyrics. I'd give Trump's left nut to have the logs we used to record those improvements. Things like that kept me sane-ish. I used the .50s to keep us in time.

    Ask Martin what he thinks about your massive quote in the wrong place. A dead family member and you make a joke. You owe him a hundred apologizes you Trump voter. Not me. And your friends, too.

    What?? Am I the only one saying I feel your pain? Do you have a mirror? Look into it. No-one else says condolences. It must show the true you. From Spitting image magician words " not a lot". This is about Martin not me. Think about that. Think a lot.
