As blind as a welder's dog.

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.

From Murphy's Laws of Combat:

Don't draw fire it irritates those around you.

Incoming fire has the right of way.

Never share a fighting position with anyone braver than you.

Re: Idioms and common sayings....

Well, better late than never.

You can't shine shyt. (My favorite, because my uncle was a master plumber and when I was young, I thought he spoke from experience.)

If I got a nickel every time I heard that, I'd be a millionaire.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Re: Idioms and common sayings....

Forum idioms

Add insult to injury

Fight at the drop of a hat

Barking up the wrong tree

It takes two to tango

Kill two birds with one stone (mod speak)

Not playing with a full deck

Steal someone's thunder

Your guess is as good as mine

You forgot, "If the enemy is in range, so are you".

(Unless you're in an M1 on a seek and destroy mission looking for Iraqi tanks, then never mind, you're not in range)
