LOL. Pull your head out of your ass & breathe, please. I used the foxhole scenario to describe one's dedication to the cause, and you run amok talking about the logistics of foxholes? Seriously?
BTW, there are numerous stories from the Middle East of soldiers taking a bullet & jumping on hand grenades to shield fellow soldiers from harm.
So the Smurf is accusing me of having cranial rectal inversion syndrome. You probably want me to spread the other cheek. Er, oops, I meant turn the other cheek. Never mind, I will let it slide this time, no point in getting in a flame war. What I was trying to say, tho, was phug the romantic notions, there are other options besides taking bullets and jumping on grenades, such as getting out of the way or tossing them back. And the analogy extends to "causes" as well. Dedication doesn't count unless you win.
