"The movement of supplies and munitions for the British punitive expedition into Tibet in 1904 required 10,000 human bearers, plus 7,000 mules, and 5,000 bullocks, not to mention 4,000 yaks, but apparently no yetis."

"war makes all of mans' other activities seem trivial by comparison!!" - - G.S. Patton.
