Flashback to 1999, remember the book Fortunate Son? Probably not. Now compare it to the treatment Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry is recieving. Where is that “Liberal Media” when you need it?
Slashdot came through with a good one, US Military Commander’s Suggested Reading List. First the a Army Reading List then the comments fill in the Marines and Air Force versions.

Duct Tape mod for Doom 3 assumes that there has to be some duct tape around to attach your flashlight to your shotgun and such. There is also Doom 3 Flashlight + Pistol.
Which brings me to one of my annoyance in Doom 3. In 2004 stardard issue military, and most police, firearms have a flashlight attachment. Even in broad daylight the flashlight is on almost every rifle. So what happend in the furture these attachments become a lost technology? Also if every police show has cops using the flashlight in one hand and pistol how come in the future this is a lost skill?
If the use of flashlight and weapon would destory the “experience” then take the flashlight away but dammit not letting them both be used at the same time is pretty fsck’n stupid.
