Carousel Beast: Endive Wombat: What an incredible waste of time and money...says the man paying a monthly fee for a free message forum.
BarkingUnicorn: He's ready for the zombie apocalypse.
doczoidberg: World War I was actually quite fascinating....I don't get why it doesn't receive more attention.
Big Merl: He must not have a HOA...
Robert1966: Uncle Toby?
Modguy: doczoidberg: World War I was actually quite fascinating....I don't get why it doesn't receive more attention.Because it was brutal and bloody as hell, is my guess, and widely regarded as the epitome of failure in regards to the chaining treaty thing. It was by and large a massive, unmitigated clusterfark that pretty much can be pointed to as shaping the a lot of how the world is today. Setting the stage for World War 2, the impetus of the League of Nations, fall of Tsarist Russia and rise of the Soviet Union etc etc. It was and is MASSIVELY important, but it doesn't have the sweeping mystique of WW2. No true grand armies sweeping the map (with the exception of the Eastern Front). It was just a massive hell hole that lasted too long, killed too many, and gained no body anything meaningful. It's something that the Europeans tried to desperately forget, because it farked up so much.
doczoidberg: WWI was the last time they'd be allowed to start a giant war just because of some petty disputes. The modern era had arrived; war had become too hellish for that shiat to fly anymore.
bighairyguy: BYO nerve gas
Gonad the Ballbarian: That is freakin' AWESOME! I'd play in that all day...
Lucky LaRue: I suspect his wife wants to kick his ass.
