The soldier slang of World War II was as colourful as it was evocative. It could be insulting, pessimistic, witty, and even defeatist. From 'spam bashers' to 'passion wagons' and 'roof pigs' to 'Hell's Ladies,' the World War II fighting man was never short of words to describe the people and events in his life. F***ed Up Beyond All Recognition takes a frank look at the British, Commonwealth, American, German, Japanese and Russian slang used by the men on the ground, and shows how, even in the heat of battle, they somehow managed to retain their sense of humour, black though it might have been.

An eBook box set of bestselling author Cindy Gerard’s Black Ops, Inc. books 4-6: Feel The Heat, Risk No Secrets, With No Remorse. FEEL THE HEAT Tough, beautiful, and blond, B.J. Chase, a covert operative at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), is assigned to the National Security Agency to find out if and how someone at NSA is leaking information about a top-secret new U.S. weapons program to terrorists. When NSA cryptologist Stephanie Tompkins brings suspicious intercepted messages to the attention of her division head, her superior is killed and Stephanie gets embroiled in a terrorist plot that implicates her as a traitor. Black Ops Inc. swings into action because Stephanie is the completely honorable and patriotic sister of one of their fallen comrades and BOI team member Raphael Mendoza is secretly in love with her. First, Stephanie is taken to a safe house where BOI agent Joe Greene will guard her. Then Colombian-born Rafe Mendoza and DIA agent B.J. are sent to Colombia by the Department of Defense to find and destroy the site where a replica of the new U.S. weapon is being constructed (according to Stephanie’s decoded intercepts). Posing as Rafe’s lover, B.J. goes to Medellin with Rafe who is using his family’s shady business connections to infiltrate the drug cartel bankrolling the weapon. As they carry out their deception, demolish the weapon, fake their own deaths and flee Colombia, Rafe and B.J. fall for each other much to their mutual surprise, just as Stephanie and Joe Greene do back in the States. RISK NO SECRETS When Black Ops, Inc. operative Wyatt Savage’s former girlfriend Sophie calls him out of the blue, desperately requesting his help, Wyatt flies down to El Salvador. He’s never stopped loving Sophie, even though she married his former best friend Hugh, who saved Wyatt's life more times than he can count when they worked together on secret missions for the CIA. Now Sophie is frantic because one of her students was abducted from the school she runs near the U.S. embassy in San Salvador. It appears that Sophie’s twelve-year-old daughter was the kidnapper’s target but they took the other girl by mistake. Wyatt is shocked when Sophie tells him that she and Hugh divorced two years ago, and she and her daughter hardly ever see him because he travels around the world protecting high-level business executives. With help from Sophie and two of his BOI brothers, Wyatt tracks down the kidnappers, but he alone undertakes the challenge of winning Sophie’s heart. WITH NO REMORSE Black Ops, Inc. operative Luke—Doc Holliday—Colter, is taking some much needed down time, making his way across the Peruvian Andes via rail, when banditos attack the moving train in the midnight hours. It soon becomes apparent that robbery is not their intent but the abduction of super model “Valentina,” who is traveling incognito while licking her wounds and recovering from a public scandal involving her ex-husband, high profile US Senator, Marcus Chamberlin. Luke whisks Valentina off the train in a daring escape but the two of them become the targets of a relentless manhunt. Enlisting the aid of Luke’s BOI teammates, they soon discover that Val’s intended abduction is linked to a plot put in play by an international gun smuggling alliance. The BOI team lead by Luke and with Val along as a necessary pawn, must race half way around the world to thwart a ruthless attack that would not only result in a devastating loss of life but destroy a tenuous peace the US and her allies have established in a vastly unstable part of the world.

Published in 2001: Abbreviations, nicknames, jargon, and other short forms save time, space, and effort - provided they are understood. Thousands of new and potentially confusing terms become part of the international vocabulary each year, while our communications are relayed to one another with increasing speed. PDAs link to PCs. The Net has grown into data central, shopping mall, and grocery store all rolled into one. E-mail is faster than snail mail, cell phones are faster yet - and it is all done 24/7. Longtime and widespread use of certain abbreviations, such as R.S.V.P., has made them better understood standing alone than spelled out. Certainly we are more comfortable saying DNA than deoxyribonucleic acid - but how many people today really remember what the initials stand for? The Abbreviations Dictionary, Tenth Edition gives you this and other information from Airlines of the World to the Zodiacal Signs.

Women are dangerous. Good, yet naive, men routinely wreck their lives because they “stick their dick in a blender” — having sex with the wrong kinds of women. STDs, unplanned pregnancies, false accusations, mental health headcases, and divorce make chasing skirts a dangerous game. While lesser men retreat from the pursuit of women into the pixel-powered pleasure world, you have faith that your hunt for a virtuous woman will be fruitful. You can’t take a time-machine back to a more decent age to find a marriageable woman. You’re not ready to give up on your genetic purpose and start banging sex robots, but you’re tired of the transient, meaningless flings with mediocre women. You’re likely underestimating just how risky sex, a relationship, or marriage is with the modern woman. But you’re also underestimating just how rewarding it is to win the commitment of “a nice girl” — a truly feminine woman, not at war with the natural order — and intertwine your essence with hers. "Don’t Stick Your Dick in a Blender” is an irreverent, politically incorrect exposition of the state of dating in the current year. And a playbook of counter-intuitive approaches, advanced social dynamics lifehacks, along with filtering strategies for avoiding the time-wasters and inglorious skanks. How to meet a nice girl… Meeting a wife-material woman - Yes, it’s still possible! Dating post-COVID-19 - The global pandemic/plandemic has changed the game, you must adapt. The truth about marrying an exotic foreign woman - Is it for you? Online dating - Navigating the digital minefield of fakers, flakes, liars, and scams. Mindset demystified - Deprogramming the mainstream (and counter-culture) mindsets that cost you love. Dating abroad - How to do it without getting royally screwed. Avoiding the friend zone - Advanced persuasion and sexual signaling methods. Seducing a virgin - Why this really matters and how to do it... Eliciting yielding Yin energy - Inspiring a woman to adopt your values. Cultivating her devotion - Get laid like a “lover” and get respect like a patriarchal provider. Tantric “sex hacks” - Up your bedroom skills with an arsenal of holistic biohacks (both ancient and cutting-edge) for life-changing sex. Losing your virginity - Perhaps you’re a frustrated virgin or “Incel” disappointed with all the crappy advice about how to lose your virginity. 33 steps are broken down for meaningfully losing your virginity. And in these pages, you’ll get the “red pills” on dating, sex, and the fairer sex without the hopelessness and cynicism. You’ll learn about the four red flags of a “blender” — deal-breakers that should make you back away slowly from a woman. You’ll learn what qualifies as a virtuous woman who you might have a future with. And, why there’s a lot of reasons to be optimistic about finding love and even getting married one day. This book is also a story of hope and redemption, the memoir of a reformed pickup artist who “enjoyed the decline” all the way from America and Colombia to Ukraine and found edifying joy and meaning between the voluptuous thighs of a beautiful Bulgarian woman on the edge of Europe.
