Moleskin: Q (who is not a grammar expert or even an enthusiast) shared that the “but” in the Credo does not need to exist. “Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you find him.” The “but” serves no purpose in the sentence, also, following the advice “nothing matters before the but” it draws emphasis away from “Leave no man behind”. Glad we solved that problem
As we started the Thang, 19 men doing sit ups and it was eerily quiet. They may have been hiding anger or just simply trying to breathe – it took until the first 5 laps of stairs before the mubblechatter started.
Brandon had his second post, after learning a bit about him and his love of comic books we named him “Adjective” after the POW, BOOM, BANG in comic books – which aren’t even adjectives. They are, and I had to look it up to remember – onomatopoeia. Glad we didn’t name him that, it would be a struggle – welcome Adjective!
COT – “Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it.”
— Søren Kierkegaard
I’m glad we fixed the English language together, Thanks Men!
