Great description mate.

And how the real world operates all too frequently.
Specially where the human species is involved ...

Sh!t happens ...

you might have seen how that phrase worked out for one particular individual

Yeah. But the Officer he was talking to agreed with him. And it's true.

oh sure, conversations like that go on all the time, im sure ive indulged in a few myself and a lot coarser than that.

But then, im not faced with an inquisitive reporter who is about to ask me 'what is the context then'. I can think of a lot of things he could have said, but It was the completely off the wall reaction by Abbot to that question that pretty much stunned everyone, not the original invention by 7 which as I saw it could have been about anything really.

When one is in harm's way, one is more likely to have sh!t happen to one.

It is why I have such high regard for soldiers, whether I agree with the fight or not.

Too many forget the sayings from that other chap:

" Love one another ." (John 15:12)

" Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends ." (John 15:13)

And that from a devout practising atheist ... one who happens to have read said book from cover to cover, albeit a long, long time ago!
