Yump?!?

Yomp is Royal Marines slang describing a long-distance march carrying full kit. The origin of the word is unclear (one suggestion would interpret it as an acronym of Your Own Marching Pace[1]). It was popularized by journalistic coverage in 1982 during the Falklands War. "Yomp" has been compared to the term yump used in rally-driving in the sense of "to leave the ground when taking a crest at speed", apparently a variant of jump.[2]

The most famous yomp of recent times was during the 1982 Falklands War. After disembarking from ships at San Carlos on East Falkland, on 21 May 1982, Royal Marines and members of the Parachute Regiment yomped (and tabbed) with their equipment across the islands, covering 56 miles (90 km)[3] in three days carrying 80-pound (36 kg)[4] loads.

56 miles (90 km)[3] in three days carrying 80-pound (36 kg)[4] loads.

or could it simply be that "yomp..." is the only word humanly possible after 56 miles shouldering an 80 pound load?

(it's what I say after 1 mile... and after each successive mile...)

Why do people question the usefulness of algebra? Is it not just the generic rules of maths and do we not use it unconsciously all the time in our everyday calculations?

and do we not apply it consciously when we recognize that, "yes, an algebraic formula covers this issue, too!" ?

How can something be "new" and "improved"? if it's new, what was it improving on?

Touche, Acute! No, not when they're unconscious. I should have said what I meant, which was that they use algebra without realising they do. You can't be accused of being obtuse! :whistle:
