usually end up, after adding alcohol in copious amounts, with stitches, concussions, lot of bruising and the occasional broken bones.

CO finally re-instituted smokers on the fantail so we could burn off some steam and not quite beat each other so badly. kept us sober, burnt of agitation, but the only rule was no grudge matches between officer and enlisted.

That'll teach them whippersnappers.
Just buy a spear.

My brother works for a Defense Contractor in Korea and regularly finds himself waiting in lines of over 500 people all trying to get on the plane heading back to South Korea. The last time he stopped in and met me along the away. I took him out to Bonneville Powerplant along the Columbia River in Oregon and they had a nice gift shop and he found a straight cane with a Hame Ball on the end for your hand. Take a look at a plow horse collar. Basically it's a brass know that's about 1-1/2" diameter. You can push that down over the top of your walking stick and put a screw in to hold it in place.

I also wrapped some paracord from the hame ball down about 6" just so I have some cord I can use if the need comes up.

If you hold that cane by the other end and hit someone with the end where the ball is, damage WILL be done.

Anyway, back to the initial part of the story.. Use your walking stick (whether you need it or not) and walk up to the line getting on the plane. They'll load you right after first class when they call for anyone needing help or having small kids.

He was standing in the line about 200 people back and a stewardess saw him and walked all the way back to him and said "Come with me, Sir" and she walked him right up to the front of the line.

He says he'll never fly without one again.

I have an old hickory shovel handle with three bands of steel around the bottom that I used as a walking stick years back. It was basically a banded mace, but no one batted an eye because it was used as walking stick.
