The thread title isn't correct.  This is a Navy slide.


I’ve spent half my life’s earning on wargames, women, and drink. The rest I wasted.

Fixed.  Again.  I'd tried to change it twice and kept getting the dreaded "you've already submitted that post" message twice

Thanks.  The guy running Army applied SBIR programs is three doors down from me (if we were in the office) and I review SBIR proposals, so I have a special interest in this.

BTW, we have made similar joke slides for our quad templates.  Another joke that I've developed is that when I talk to the soldiers and ask them to tell me some capabilities they need that we could look at in science and technology.  I've been told several times that they want a laser in a backpack.  If it's appropriate, I'll scratch my chin, pause like I'm deep in thought, and say "well, hmm, yes, we could work on that, but it would mean that we'd have to cancel our program to develop sharks with lasers."  Sometimes I get a chuckle, and sometimes I get the look like they can't tell if I'm serious or not.
