(Smithsonian Magazine) Video In the 1930s, Confederate veterans were asked to step up to the mic to record, for the last time, the sound that turned union blood blue. Ladies and Gentlemen... This is what the Rebel Yell sounded like... *ahem*... WHEEEEEEEeeeee   ( divider line

Bondith: MaudlinMutantMollusk: I thought it sounded like More! More! More!

Actually...since I presume that song is describing intimate relations of some sort, her making that sound in my ear would be something of a moment-killer.

/not quite sure what I'd have to do to her to get that reaction.
//Lean on her hair, probably
///Or possibly the Spocker

If she's coming at you from behind, wearing a strap-on, and making that sound, it might scare you.

Bernoo: Not so proud of that, but from his side of the family, it so happens that Thomas Jefferson is my first cousin.

You should be very proud that you are so goddamn old that you have the same grandparents as Jefferson.

Lsherm: NowhereMon: Lsherm: That said, it sounds like a bunch of 19th century white guys imitating a Native American war cry

Pretty much this. Kinda sad really considering the high regard with which tea baggers and rednecks hold the confederacy.

I don't see how that historical fact would influence them one way or the other.

Certainly no other sort of fact seems to have any effect

I'll admit, I didn't know "Rebel Yell" actually referenced something historical. That said, it sounds like a bunch of 19th century white guys imitating a Native American war cry.

Given the absolute stupidity of Civil War fighting tactics, I have no doubt this might have proven an advantage in some skirmishes.
