    I am sure the Russian army has not degenerated to the point that it cannot liberate a truck full of alcohol.

    Holy Testicle Tuesday, Batman!

    Quick Robin, to the Bat Cave!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    How much beer is 10 tons of beer? I mean... is it *really* worth a week of salvage efforts in freezing temperatures. Now if it were some good Russian vodka...

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    You guys are all way off. A job like this calls for McGuyver!

    ...and when did McGyver ever rescue something that weighed 10 tons with a paperclip, rubberband, and a mirror?

    Hey, he could have done it if they would have called him, using a plastic bag, a fishing sinker, a 6ft rope, and a bottle of butane

    ....and when did the A-Team ever shoot somebody and kill them?

    Nothing like using Army resources to save beer. The big kicker is that they left the truck behind. Priorities, I tell ya!

    The beer was probably worth more than the truck.

    So 10 tons (assuming metric) = 10 000 kilos = 10 000 litres of beer.
    Probably a bit more because alchohol is slightly less dense than water.
    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....
