    Small world... I work at the University of Dayton Research Institute. Ron Hoffman's office is directly across from mine.

    Even though I don't work in the Impact Physics Lab, I get to hear guns going off all day. And I love it! :cool:

    Did you guys know James Doohan (Scotty) was a Canadian WWII vet? He was a tank commander who went ashore on D-Day. He lost a finger and part of a second finger to a German machine gun while moving on foot at night. He always tried to hide the injury on film, but every now and then you'd see it in an old Star Trek episode.
