WASHINGTON: "Why are all these nerds taking up bunk space downrange?" one special ops sergeant major grumbled. But, boasted SOCOM chief technology officer Snehal Antani, "about three months later that same sergeant major came back and said, 'I have found religion. We're solving problems in days that should have taken us months or years'."

How many special ops sergeant majors does it take to turn it off and on again?

Just one, but it'll take him 7 hours to find an E2 to hit the button.

imbrial: aka the whole plot of Ender's Game


I thought the whole plot of ender's game is that pigs and former child stars both harbor dangerous secrets.

Wait, that's the sequel.

One of the plots of The Valley of Tears.  It didn't end well for the geeks if you including surviving as a good outcome.

Sergeant Majors tend to be pretty friggin' smart.   They've seen it and done it all, for the most part.  I once heard* a colonel dress down a first lieutenant for not listening to and following the advice of the battalion sergeant major.  One of the phrases I heard was "He's been promoted eight times, you've been promoted *ONCE*".

*Oddly enough I was on extra duty cleaning up in HHC offices because I had been a bad boy.  The colonel's office door was closed, of course, because you don't discipline officers in front of enlisted, but you could hear what he was saying if you were sweeping the floor right outside his office.
