Practice makes what?

Several years ago, my flight instructor, a crusty old Marine major, once taught me something I can never forget. My class was up against the wall for something, I forget what. Basic "butter-bar tomfoolery" or something like that.

After a good chewing-out, he asked us, "practice makes what?" And we all mumbled, "perfect, Sir." He said, "B____S____!"

"Practice Makes Permanent."

- My flight instructor, Maj. Mike Harris, USMC, Vance AFB, OK in 2001.
