I'd say Cluster Fucked! But that might be a bit mild for this.

There's nothing as cool as priests with double AKs.

Eh, it's my quick and inaccurate rendering to blame, but they're supposed to be silenced Hecker-Koch MP5s.

Out of the firing line and into the... firing?

Jim Gordon is tossing 'nade like theoretical physicist Gordon Freeman? But he has no HEV suit, gravity gun or hornet gun here, he should be keeping his fragile and inadequately armed self behind cover and not attracting attention.

No idea if this is an intentional reference, but his name rather reminds me of Commissioner Jim/James Gordon from the Batman stories. And given who this Jim Gordon (probably) is, that would be quite ironic...

And again, given who this guy (probably) is, I am pretty confident that he can handle a little grenade quite well...

It's one thing to learn how to throw a baseball as a kid, and another thing entirely to be fit, drilled and ready to participate in a firefight as a competent soldier. IT students of the Aaron Swartz type tend to be pretty pale and unfit because they are too busy with IT and its applications to spend much time on other things.

Considering how "Happy" this particular Jim Gordon may be, he certainly has had an extensive background in military skills...

You are hinting he may be Captain Happy pretending to be a MIT student nerd? Shouldn't he be way too old to make that one work? Mind you, knowledge of a little bit of internet usage trickery and an actual cracker or two in the background at a remote place to do the digital dirty work could present the necessary competence to sell the role.

AC, come on! Haven’t you seen how grad school turns healthy young people into infirm, dissolute wrecks?
anonymous coward 12th Jul 2019, 7:17 PM edit delete reply
Yes, I have seen what poverty and overwork does to graduates and grad students of IT. Still, isn't Happy in his 50s or more by now? If he was a Cold Warrior that would've put him at least in his 20s during the 80s, which would lead to the guy being in his 50s or 60s by this point. That's a different kind of wrecked from someone that gets no sunlight, no exercise, regular sleep deprivation, variably poor nutrition, and continuous stress. For one thing, the skin problems tend more to being pale, greasy and zit-marked than the rough and leathery wrinkles of healthier old age.

I condemn you for not making Chuck wear bunny slippers...

What was that? My hearing ain’t so good these days, sonny. You said you want to see MJ in a bunny outfit? Jeez, give me a few hours to get on that...

Sense of humor or not, holy men tend to be more likely to escalate a situation, not less
