Last summer someone asked me about a scar and I told him 'that's where the Jap got me with a bayonet'. Months later(yesterday afternoon), the dumbass comes up to me and asks me if I can come to his kid's class and give a history talk about WW2. I wasn't even born until 6 years after the war ended. Do the math. I may look old but I don't look THAT old. I wonder if this'd have happened if I told the idiot it was a British bayonet I got pronged with while I was serving with George Washington? Maybe the knot on my head came when I was serving with the Cro Magnon army when we were fighting the Neanderthals.

Yes, people are stupid. Get used to it and enjoy the ride. I have an 8" scar across my gut from kidney surgery. Of course, if asked I say I got stabbed in a barroom brawl. Either that or bitten by a shark while surfing in Hawaii. Either one plays well with the chicks. [;)]

You lied to him, and you are calling him a dumbass? Are you that guy at funshows that is always talkin' about being a Seal in 'Nam? That guy was not doing anything wrong.

Hey, people ask me about my scars all the time. I tell them it's from when I was killed in a fire. True.

Well, I just found out a few years ago that the surgeon who operated on me when I was 5 wasn't really named Dr. Do-little. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer...

There we wuz, Me an John Wayne, shoulder to shoulder, and back to the wall........I wuz a lot younger then, say 5 years before my Pa got the hard-on that made me, but I wuz still a pretty fiesty young feller....... When all of a sudden this evil Jap was sneaking up on me with his post ban Arisaka. Had no bayonet lug, but he'd duct taped this Gunsu knife on it lunged........ to be continued next week. To Torf and LarryG: Do the math. I'm 50. I LOOK about 45-50. The YOUNGEST a person can be and still have seen action in WW2 is about 76. I also tell people about serving for Gen'l Washington at Valley Forge.

Liberty86's idea sounds interesting. Should I go and give the talk? Take the SEC with me and tell the kids I was blinded at Hiroshima? A friend says if I do, he'll take my arm and steer me around. (Jesus! This could be the wildest SEC mission, yet!)

It would be pure art form to weave a tale rife with blatant BS, yet just beleivable enough that the gullible ones would actually try to re-tell the story later. Only to be met with a "What the hell's the matter with you?! The French never invaded Japan!!!" Or some such.
