   GO3  I'm in a trivia quiz mood today. What Allied WWII general said the following?

"Do not needlessly endanger the lives of your troops until I give you the signal."

   GO3  Not Polish, but he may be forgiven for uttering an incomplete sentence which could have been clarified with a few more words.

   GO3  Good try, but it was Ike. While invasion troops were marshaling in England, a lot of high intensity training was going on with casualties (e.g., the Sullivan brothers ). Ike's intent was to have units dial it back a bit and save strength for the invasion. Unfortunately, his directive came out as being silly. Heck, no one is perfect.

You mention Bradley. JMO but I think he was way overrated.

   MeiDei  I like incomplete sentences unless they involve murderers, rapists, pedophiles & traitors; and no Polish jokes unless they're really funny! [I gotta keep an eye on you two] lol

   MeiDei  I was referring to GO3 (7 posts above this one ) to lighten [insert silly humor] - but if you two are bantering vs. baiting each other - I'm good with that - well no, I'm VERY good with that - humor always welcomed.

   Mike PHX  Jeez, joke was about you liking incomplete sentences.
Having to explain jokes makes them meaningless. GO and I are great I think...great minds, and all that.
I hope we're the same.

   MeiDei  Mike I see you like & use incomplete sentences too - "Mei what the ..." how am I supposed to know that's a joke? I'm grinning here!
GO3 you might get more traction ("nessa" ) on the movie wall & I could use the help keeping it active while Storm's away. Nice going guys, happy you're Wall active.
