    Land nav is so difficult that the Army uses it to screen candidates for Special Operations Forces. Lots of people just never get it.

    None of the usuals, I'm afraid.

    I rewatched it on M4UHD, one of those "Watch online free" channels. Better have adblock, though.

    Marshals got them in Evansville. Rapunzel tried suicide, but apparently her brain is too small to hit.

    No one who mattered got hurt.

    The 1972 version with Stacy Keach and George C. Scott?
    Very good movie. As realistic as a commercial movie can be, I guess.
