Schlock Mercenary's "The 70 Maxims of Maximally Effective Mercenaries"

  1. Pillage, Then Burn
  2. A sergeant in motion outranks a lieutenant who doesn't know what's going on.
  3. An ordnance technician at a dead run outranks everybody.
  4. Close air-support covereth a multitude of sins.
  5. Close air-support and friendly fire should be easier to tell apart.
  6. If violence wasn't your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.
  7. If the food is good enough the grunts will stop complaining about the incoming fire.
  8. Mockery and derision have their place. Usually it's on the far side of the airlock.
  9. Never turn your back on an enemy.
  10. Sometimes the only way out is through... through the hull.
  11. Everything is air-droppable at least once.
  12. A soft answer turneth away wrath. Once wrath is looking the other way, shoot it in the head.

These Gems are slowly handed out over the comic's ten year plus run.
I was going to share a longer blog about a dream but instead this shall do as John has a cold.
