It saddens me that this pursuit, often but not exclusivly associated with the Int Corps, seems to be going out of fashion, despite an increase in the number of US/UK operations and hence the ready supply of MREs. Allow me to explain: The Meals Ready to Eat (or other comedy interpreptations of these letters, usually involving malnurished Africans) contain a heating element. With judicious use of a knife, this heating element can be removed and crumbled in the hands to form a powder (tee hee). The ideal projectile is an empty and dry 2 ltr Coke bottle. Using said knife, make a small round incision in the base of the coke bottle. Pour the MRE heater powder into the coke bottle. Aim projectile (potential targets include General's tent, HQ, RMP House) using a tripod or other improvised launch rail. Pour a small quantity of water (not too much) into the Coke bottle. The mixture will start to effer, efferevs, er......fizz like mad. Put lid on bottle. Watch in giggling anticipation as the bottle shakes as pressure increases. Whoop and cheer successful launch. Run and hide. Is this procedure familiar to others? Used with great success in Tuzla (Bosnia) in the mid 90's by..er...someone. Could this be included on Corps Day as an event, with the aiming point being the old codgers in their lunch tent?
