Greeting Ladies and Gents,
Just saw on Yahoo that "Scotty" from Star Trek passed away today. There is a short essay on his life within the article, which has this interesting bit of information. Apparently, James Doohan served in The Canadian military, and was sent to Juno Beach on D-Day

"The Canadians crossed a minefield laid for tanks; the soldiers weren't heavy enough to detonate the bombs. At 11:30 that night, he was machine-gunned, taking six hits: one that took off his middle right finger (he managed to hide the missing finger on screen), four in his leg and one in the chest. Fortunately the chest bullet was stopped by his silver cigarette case."

Cigarette smoking may kill you, but the sterling case that carries them may save your life.
