I wish I was in the land of slumber,

If I knew I'd voted for some of the mental defectives they've elected recently, I wouldn't be able to sleep at night either

Really, I'd have figured that epidemic diabetes and atheroschlerosis, and overwhelming obesity was the problem that the south had with "rising".

Don't worry. Help is only a blue pill away, though. The south will rise again! But not for more than four hours, then you need to see a doctor.

Could it just be that fat people have sleep problems.

No need to involve statistics of the various US states other than to locate fat people.

You know, it's ironic that the Sherman tank gets so much hype. They were utterly hated by their crews, and vastly inferior to the German tanks they were going up against in terms of firepower and armor protection.

It was, on the other hand, a case of "We have more than you" and "Zerg Rush" when it came to US vs German armor battles. For every sherman lost, there were 10 more running along side of it. The German tanks were amazing marvels of technology, expecially the Tigers and Panthers, but they were difficult and slow to manufacture.

I don't know if I'd consider it a "disturbance" to wake up to at 3am to a blowjob from my cousin... More like a pleasant surprise actually.

I do get awakened by my white trash neighbors partying/fighting/yelling at late-thirty fairly often.

In fairness, I give as good as I get. I get the cops called on me about as often as I call the cops on them.

We have a lot of unemployment and at the same time our state Ga. is finding ways to reduce benefits and increase drug testing for everything.
We are treated badly and broke, no wonder why.

Obesity and sleep disturbance are comorbid. It's well-documented that the south is fatter than the rest of the country.

Next mystery?

For me the warmer it is the worse I sleep. It would stand to reason that people in warmer climates would not sleep as well as people in more northerly climes (assuming I'm normal which is as bad assumption).

It reminds me of the time I was walking around in the airport in Atlanta, Georgia. All the males were wearing either combat fatigues or shorts with golf-shirts. What would be declasse where I come from was the norm just through pure practicality. I would consider moving there if I didn't think the biscuits and gravy would kill me. KILL ME DEAD!!!!!!

BM:

I am so sick of reading "German Tanks during WW2, , ,"

Factoid 1) The Germans lost the war. This means they were the suck.

Factoid 2) The best tank of the war was Soviet.

Factoid 3) The US never sent a tank into Europe without Air Superiority. It was never their doctrine to go tank versus tank. The job of the American tank was to draw out the German tank, radio in a dive-bomber. The Germans didn't have the five goddamn tanker-trucks of fuel that correspond to each of their tanks for them even to be real tanks by the time the USAF cleaned up. Before then. Never did find that miracle gas-station on the Soviet steppe, neither. The equation was a fueled tank + a dive bomber > a larger tank with fumes in the tank. French tanks were as good as German ones, but lacked a good radio and command and control scheme.

Factoid 4) The US built their tanks at an auto plant rather than a tank plant. That paperhanger, Uncle A., wasn't worth the bother.

//Get your history somewheres else than TV.

Funny thing, the Germans declared that they had mastered tank design as a theoretical proposition. Then, the Sovs invented the sloping-front-end style. German pride delayed them in copying it for a bit, ha ha!
