The various shooting sprees in the US has people yapping on about how if the young men wanted guns and to shoot people they need to join the army and do it for real. Yes by all means, take these young men and subject them to military
Old Knudsen travels the werld and
Young men have no business going into the military, older gents are far better. I'll no get into the whole weemen in the military thing because out in the real werld nails get broken and hair gets messed up, just you make sure the kettle is on as I likes me tea after I bayonet charge the fuzzies.
Young men think about sex every second thought. Whenever a young lad goes to the supermarket he can't pass by the fruit and veg without wondering what it would feel like if he put his dick into a melon or rubbed off against some onions in yon plastic netting. Old Knudsen knows what all that feels like, been there done that he ain't gonna give it much more thought.
Young men would be tricked into giving away vital information as soon as a female smiled at them and showed kindness to them. Old Knudsen has tasted rejection so often that he treats every friendly female with suspicion. There was a joke running around the mess hall that Old Knudsen's chat up line was, "are you wearing a wire?" .... Old Knudsen didn't find it funny.
If Old Knudsen was captured he wouldn't even give up his serial number .... maybe just the first number which might be a 2. No point using pain on Old Knudsen, he's survived man, pig and bird flu, he had pandemonium and didn't phone in sick. His knees have been shot out by paramilitaries so many times his legs no longer bend, the only complaint he made was when they didn't roll up his troosers that one time.
Pain and Old Knudsen are old friends, especially when he doesn't take his stool softeners.
Old men are calmer under pressure, young men have all those young hormones racing around inside them while Old Knudsen had his nerves surgically removed when he was having his annual scrotum tuck 4 years ago. Three blokes with AK-47's and I'm all out of ammo. A young man might panic but Old Knudsen would use his combat knife to sharpen a stick and attack them with it or maybe swifty fashion a bow and arrow using his own hair for the arrow flights. Old Knudsen kicks panic's pan in.
Young men are all about carrying big packs for 50 miles in 20 minutes to prove how tough they are, Old Knudsen doesn't need proof so he'll take a taxi into battle if you don't mind and since he can't even spell retreet he won't be doing it. Endurance course? I've watched the 3 Lord of the rings movies, I've seen some shit.
Do you know why it only took a few days to kick Saddam out of Kuwait? Cos they woke Old Knudsen early and made him miss his nap. They had to stop me from taking heads, a cranky Old Knudsen is a dangerous Old Knudsen and I don't do mornings. The Falklands war caused some jip on me knee with yon cold and wet weather and I am ashamed to say I did take it out on the enemy which is why they haven't invaded since.
A young man would shout, stamp his feet and sulk. Ach away an sit in yon corner an play with yerself little boy.
Young men are usually not very self aware and don't have a sense of perspective, they think they're invincible and so might do acts that seem like bravery and often die doing them.
Old Knudsen is more careful and knows what a loss his death would be to the werld. He wouldn't waste all that training and experience dying in a war, he has more respect for his employers and for the ladies who would join convents or become leezers should Old Knudsen cark it. Playing dead to fight another day is a military tactic used by the likes of Alexander the great and Jesus so it's good enough for Old Knudsen.
Young men might be able to bench press 400 LBS but there are no benches in battle. Old Knudsen has old man strength and his hands are like steel clamps from years of having to open
Just leave young men to play their video games and maybe put something in their tea to cut doon on yon erections, that'll stop the violence somewhat and leave the fighting and liberating to the geezers.
