* In ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'', Emil accidentally breaks a wing mirror off the tank right before his uncle and employer comes to give it a look. His reaction is to throw the thing as hard as he can and claim it was already broken. Fortunately, the only witnesses are his new commanding officer who immediately plays along with the story and a colleague who doesn't share a language with anyone else present. Unfortunately, the mirror's landing place starts a chain of events that eventually gives the main cast a stowaway.
