Bob Newhart joins the Army

If you thought being a driver trainer on the streets was scary, consider this:

The driver training tank is essentially a regular Leopard 2 MBT with its turret replaced by a special observation cabin, with a dummy gun and extra weight to simulate that of an MBT turret.The instructor, with appropriate devices to override the trainee driver seated in the hull, sits in the front seat of the observation cabin. Two additional seats in the “glasshouse” provide space for pupils to observe.

The band I am going to see tonight isn’t normal. Normal bands do not send out email like this the day of the show:

One last thing: We are in dire need of a few extra 55 GALLON OIL DRUMS for our guest musicians tonight.

If you happen to have something like this in Los Angeles, or know where we can get some on a Saturday, PLEASE CALL US AT:

We can pick it up. These are they same types of barrels used by folks to make Burn Barrels. We’re just going to beat on the edges, so the barrels will still be usable after the performance.
