I don't take things that literally. Although i have bitten people when they say it, so good job on that one, sam. One of my favorite games to play with soldiers is if I see a bootlace hanging, I'll tell them to hold still, slowly kneel down, and before they can stop me, grab the lace. Then I whip out my knife (Haven't had anyone try to stop me yet. maybe a guy on his knee with a knife out makes a good deterrent?) and cut the lace off. I hand it to them and inform them I just saved their life from an ankle constricting boot snake and no need to thank me. It's fun.
just like that last week. I maced the fucker. Don't think he will try it again.
