Phil the SWO: Bravo, Subby. Trollerific or genius headline? Fark, you be the judge.\I vote genius.
Morchella: The object of Obamacare and Operation Iraqi Freedom is to get brownies? Who knew?
Rincewind53: Oh god, the PDF is fantastic.Literally 26 pages long, detailing how to make brownies and oatmeal cookies. Twenty-six pages long. Got to love Army Efficiency.
Abner Doon: Morchella:Imagine how much better the healthcare debate would have been had we known that brownies were on the table.
Jackson Herring: Jesus. These farking headlines...
thomps: Jackson Herring: Jesus. These farking headlines...do you challenge the accuracy of the headline?
Jackson Herring: thomps: Jackson Herring: Jesus. These farking headlines...do you challenge the accuracy of the headline?You mean Obama isn't your primary care physician now? This is what happens when you don't read the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy Metting minutes.
cram_hole: The brownies are a lie.
thomps: i'm just saying that there is no way that obamacare or operation iraqi freedom is going to end with me getting brownies.
Bendal: As mentioned in TFA's comments, the 26 page recipe is to make sure that the mega-brownie making company and all its subsidiaries make brownies that are consistantly similar to all the other brownies. Nestle's and any other food manufacturer probably have similarly large recipe descriptions for the foods they make, too.
IrateShadow: Hell, Hostess modifies the recipe for twinkies
keithgabryelski: it's unfortunate that business is so concerned with bottom line profits instead of pride of work that they would fark up brownie making if it wasn't for a document that explained in 26 page detail how it must be done to conform to specification.go ahead, remove any page and give a contract to any business for 1 million brownies -- see how it comes out.
Phil Moskowitz: sounds like a crack dealer trying to hook a client.
Magorn: Welcome to milspec hellIt'd be easy to blame the military-bureaucracy complex for it, but the truth is it really lie in the underhanded business ethics of war-profiteers excuse me, defense contractors going back to at least the civil war. Because fo them, you can't simply let out a contract for "blankets" or some scummy merchant will underbid the contract, deliver a bunch of blankets thinner than cotton sheets and say well it's what I call a blanket so pay me"Thus before you can ask a contractor for Blankets you have to define minimum standards: So many inches long, so many wide, so many thick, made out of these kinds of material only, in these colors, to meet this elvel of flame retardency, durability, etc etcergo Milspec

Linux_Yes: Obfuscation is also a handy tool to keep americans confused so that Trillion dollars a year of free tax money continues to be poured into the Pentagon so they can continue to play their war games and continue to keep americans scared of the boogeyman.
