( I'm lost. I know Gawdzilla has to find out if it's safe before he goes there . He used the expression "tuck & roll" which is like "duck & roll" in 1950's school films about nuclear attacks. )

OK...... OK..... I say "Is Gawdzilla going to Guam, Japan or Sth Korea for his holidays?"

Are you thinking of "duck and cover"? That's the term I remember from those films. "Tuck and roll" is about jumping from a moving vehicle, including the old military parachutes.

I apologise Gord. It was indeed "Duck & Cover" that I remembered and not "Duck & Roll"

Perhaps, you are on to something and Gawdzilla is going to jump from a moving car?

(But you might need surgery after peeking. :lol:)



And this kind ain't all that bad. :)


ETA Dang, I watched a docu on PBS, IIRC, years ago on this type of surgery with flaps of the soldier's skin attached to their faces to be used eventually and all I could find is this Daily Fail article. Warning: Graphic! It might be the same Dr/facility.

5th surgery on right eye, with at least one more to go. Left eye was fine after one procedure. What that says about America is obvious.

On the upside my doctor gets a paper out of this. :|
