Embarrassed in Edmonton asks: RAMBO, my friend sometimes gets really bad athlete's foot. He has tried all the over-the-counter creams and sprays but nothing works for him. Do you have any suggestions?

Dear Embarrassed. Setting a claymore mine is easy. Living with the consequences is the hard part. It's important to decide ahead of time your accepted level of collateral damage. Whether they be enemy sentries or merely innocent villagers just making a daily trip to the river for some water, claymores don't discriminate. If you're in the vicinity, the blast may deafen you, but it still won't drown out the screams of your victims. So before you set that mine and hunker down in the bush, ready to sweep up any survivors as they run terrified and confused in the aftermath, know this: That mine may be your only chance of making it out of this jungle alive, but it kills more than unsuspecting patrols. A little bit of your humanity dies too.

Change your socks often!
All the best,
