Roadblock wanted to be a gourmet chef. He was working as a bouncer to earn money to attend the Escoffer School in France when an army recruiter
convinced him that the army could train him to be a chef. Roadblock joined
but found army menus and preparation techniques too appalling. Transferred
to the infantry. Qualified expert: M-2 Browning /50 cal.; Heavy Machine Gun; All Warshaw Pact Heavy MGs; M-16; M-1911A1 Auto Pistol.
"A .50 cal. Browning weights 84 pounds. Add fifty pounds for the ammo-that's about 134 pounds of steel generating 2930 f.p.s. in muzzle velocity at a cyclic rate of 550 r.p.m. Anybody who can handle that doesn't need a machine gun to keep me away!"
