Men Rules: Guide for Women (humor)

"QUANTUM SHOT" #194


In case you wondered, and are male - these are the rules we abide by. If you are a girl reading this, then you can just refresh your memory.

MEN RULES: Now here are the rules from the male side.
These are our rules!

Please note... these are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE!

1. Men are NOT mind readers.

1. Learn to work the toilet seat.
You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.
We need it up, you need it down.
You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

1. Sunday sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides.
Let it be.

1. Shopping is NOT a sport.
And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want.
Let us be clear on this one:
Subtle hints do not work!
Strong hints do not work!
Obvious hints do not work!
Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a Problem. See a doctor.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 Days.

1. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of them makes you sad or angry, then we meant the "other one "

1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," we will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle, besides we know you will bring it up again later.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine...really.

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation, or golf.

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!

1. Thank you for reading this. Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight; but did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.

Soviet Army Super Vehicles

"QUANTUM SHOT" #193


Ballistic Missile Carriers & other super trucks

We covered Russian Army Ballistic Missile Carriers in the previous article. Today we publish some additional images of Soviet Army many-wheeled monsters: most models dating back to Cold War and Brezhnev times, with only a few still in production - most produced by the Minsk Tractor Trailer Factory.

Model 7907: (one of the longest chassis in the world)
Carrying capacity - 200 tons.













Model 7917:





Model 7906:



Model 7904:







Model 7410:





Model 543:





Model 535:



MKZT 79221-1:




Graveyard of the mighty ones

Rusting away in some nameless yard, these dinosaurs still look impressive when parked close to "diminutive" russian cars. Pretty cool props for some rad Cold War game developing. (images source here)



This one seems to be one of the more "collectible" ZIL-3167s. Here is how it looked in its better days:







and when retired:























One spotter found the MAZ 7904 (shown above) in the hangar of the Baikonur Space Center. It is the only surviving truck of this kind. Some Russian and East European forests, I bet, still have inside of them deeply disturbing army machinery, the likes of which the world only saw at Communists May Parades.
