We would get so bored on base that we would put an ice cube in a helmet and watch it melt. We would watch the clock too and bet on how long it took and whoever was the closest would dump the water from the ice cube wherever he wanted on whoever he wanted. It was some fun shit. And eventually we would be sent back out into that miserable fucking desert and maybe we would return fewer than when we left. And still we would get bored, put an ice cube in a helmet again and watch it melt.
