                Are you really going to maintain you are unaware that "Sergeant at Arms" means one and only one thing to people born between around 1960? (i.e., 40+ years after you):

                Faithfully submitted, Douglas C. Niedermeyer, Sergeant-at-Arms.
                I won't ask whether you get it now, since even if you did you'd twist it into your typical hate pretzel. Now, get thee back to Ignore, princess.

                  Yeah, it's hard to imagine why anyone wouldn't immediately see the connection between a hero and a fictional d*uchebag.

                    And I thought he was talking of Scott and Rob. Of course, I was 7 in 1960.

                      Well, the connection's just a tiny bit obscure. And I'm confident I wasn't the only one to miss it. He and I both do a lot of movie trivia around here. But IMO it's a bit of a stretch to compare Mr. Vickers in any way with Niedermeyer, who was an a*shole from the word "go."

                      And I'm reminded of the golf scene:

                      Boon: I gotta work on my game.

                      My only exposure to the RCMP was in Happy Valley, Labrador. They had a brand new HQ (nicest building in town, which aside from the Hudson's Bay Co. store wasn't saying much) and they were all very big dudes. At the time I was on the CBC payroll, while on active duty with the AF. Very nice gig.

                        You have your bile gun ready for anything people say. Then you refuse to walk it back because it's embarrassing that you went off half cocked. FFS, stuff a sock in it just this once and don't drag your viciousness into this.

                              Sounds like the Russians just conducted a NATO-Preparedness test.

                              BRUSSELS—Russian military aircraft conducted aerial maneuvers around Europe this week on a scale seldom seen since the end of the Cold War, prompting NATO jets to scramble in another sign of how raw East-West relations have grown.

                              The North Atlantic Treaty Organization said that more than two dozen Russian aircraft in four groups were intercepted and tracked on Tuesday and Wednesday, an unusually high level of activity that the alliance said could have endangered passing civilian flights.

                              Military jets from eight nations were scrambled to meet the Russian aircraft, which a NATO spokesman said remained in international airspace and didn’t violate NATO territory.

                              However, NATO officials said such flights heighten the risks of military miscalculations.

                              ....

                              NATO said it has conducted over 100 intercepts of Russian aircraft so far this year, about three times as many as were conducted in 2013.

                              ....

                              NATO said this week’s flights were detected over the Atlantic Ocean, North Sea, Baltic and Black seas. The Russian aircraft included fighters, bombers and tanker aircraft, it said.

                              Such flights pose a risk to civilian flights, according to NATO, because the Russians often don't file flight plans or use onboard transponders, which mean civilian air-traffic control can’t detect them.

                                So Russia just wants to become North Korea West, right?

                                Why does that region of the world have such an inferiority complex?
