I actually understood that.

I wish they would make clearly understandable videos like this one now.

I never learn a thing from supposedly educational videos made this century.

I liked that.
A few years ago, I took a winter survival course that was at least half for snowcat operators. The Instructor showed us a film, "Field Expedients for Track Laying Vehicles." He said it was the best for this purpose that they could find in the Library of Congress. It was a 1943 War Dept. film and the vehicles were M4 Sherman tanks. But it was a great little film. And you couldn't miss something that's mostly gone from today's America: an incredible "can do" attitude.
America has ten times too many police, a hundred times too many citizens unwilling to take responsibility for their own defense and the consequences of their own actions, a thousand times too many politicians who wrongly believe they have the right to tell others how to live their lives, and a million times too many illegal aliens.
