    My first experience with a WW II field kitchen was in early August 1964 at Lackland AFB. I big storm and tornado came through overnight and took out all the power lines. Breakfast was served in the parking lot and everything looked exactly like it did in that video. That was a Saturday morning and since I had finished my basic training they handed me and about 20 other guys orders and we packed our duffel bags and hiked over to the transportation center and were on a bus before noon.

    “why we can’t travel faster than the speed of light”.
    Actually, it’s relative, no pun intended. The problem is that everything we can use to measure how fast something travels at the upper end of speed is measured using techniques that depend on the speed of light. Things like light, radio waves etc. SO we don’t know if it is going faster because relative to the speed of light we use to measure it with it does not appear to go faster.

    Imagine two objects in space each of which are traveling very fast, perhaps .98% the speed of light. This is not an uncommon event due to huge explosions in space which eject debris at tremendous speed. Now imagine these two objects are traveling towards each other from opposite directions. If one of these objects was big enough for a human to stand on and that human could detect the opposing object as it passed by how fast would it be going???

    The logical answer is it would be traveling at 1.96% of the speed of light. BUT, what could you possibly use to measure that speed? And what would that measurement device use to track the object and thus measure the speed. The simple answer is that it would use measurement techniques that were limited to the speed of light and the speed it would measure as the object passed would be .98% the speed of light. Because… relativity.

    I’ve been urging people to read Harrison Bergeron since I first read it years ago.
    Lately, it’s been CM Kornbluth’s “the marching morons” a story of a situation that seems familiar somehow.
    Think of ‘vaccines’ instead of rockets to Venus & it gets a little scary…

    “WWII Field Kitchen Overview”
    When you want to know how a WWII Wehrmacht field kitchen operated (among other things, it was fueled by wood rather than gasoline, and the menu might feature horse meat) . . .

    I was the mess officer for a large company field kitchen, which was part of my job as an Company Executive Officer. It’s pretty much the same, but it is fun as hell to see this guys accuracy regarding 1940s stuff. If you were eating hot A Rats, you were not in combat. Close combat was taking the enemies’ position, scraping blood off the black bread with your trench knife, and chowing down (I’m told).

    GD, that monkey made me laugh.

    I worked on a pilot Dennis Franz was in (it was directed by Mark Tinker, prior to NYPD Blue). He was a really nice man. He brought his mom to the set to watch the filming one day. Time passes, and you remember the good guys. Tinker was alright, too.

    CC, I just recently reread “The Marching Morons”. CMK is one of my favorite writers.

    The sword maker. Can you imagine the job satisfaction that man has?

    I love the Top Gear segment with the Reliant Robin. Every time I watch it it’s hilarious, but mainly due to Clarkson and his antics. The other segment is the one where he drives the Peel one-seater through the BBC offices and across the live broadcast studio. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJfSS0ZXYdo

    The Japanese set breakfast, not bad but when I was visiting there I’d usually start my day with hot coffee from the vending machine on the street.

    field kitchen

    a friend, deceased last year, took a year off from college and got his draft notice. his father was in the aerospace industry and asked prominent milltary, etc, people he knew what could be done, they all said tell him to join the navy. he did, found himself dropped in the Great Dismal Swamp wearing only his underwear for training, and was sent to vietnam where his duty was riverine warfare. if you knew him for five minutes you knew what is written above. he found two navy mess trays at a flea market and bought two, giving one to me. occasionally now, I’ll fill up the tray and have a meal with him, in absentia.
