: : : : Hey Dana you will be glad to know that I'm setting here working on a roach. Dana you asked for it, the Hurons may be back in Mohicanland once again.
: : : ____________
: : : HURON? Are you HURON, Silver Wolf. Wooooohooooo! Hurons are WELCOME in MohicanLand! I feel completely free to discuss 18th century Native American hairstyles with you. Whew!
: : : What exactly is a hair roach? I hope it's not a way to avoid a scalplock.
: : : Dana S.
: : ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
: : Well, Dana, I don't know if he's Huron, but he sure ain't from FLORIDA! Down here,no one would use the words "hair" and "roach" in the same sentence, lest the State Board of Health show up with an insecticidal shampoo! ;o)
: : MMMM
: I suspect ol' Silver Wolf is trying to get out of wearing a scalplock.;)
: I've been to Florida. Never saw a roach. I DID see entirely too many of those lizardy things, though.
: Dana S.
Those 6-8 foot lizardy things WERE the Florida roaches! You should see the size of the Florida gators!!!!
I understand Aberdeen Proving Grounds, when developing a tank to replace the old M-60 tank, tested both the M1 (later to be called the Abrahms) against a standard Florida roach (still called a Florida roach). The Florida roach won the tests hands down for thickness of armor, speed, survivability, climbing ability and psychological terror induced in the enemy. Problem was, the darn thing kept eating the soldiers it was supposed to be protecting. And NOBODY wanted to climb down inside the thing!!
