Just a thought for the day to cheer you up!


Yes, but Ecclesiastes 9:4 "For whoever is joined with all the living, there is hope; surely a live dog is better than a dead lion."

I'm thinking Australia and South Africa will have the same reaction to this post:

"Who you calling small? I resemble that remark!!!"

I mean, they are at 14 and 12, respectively, which - if I did the math right - puts them at 73% and 63% of your size.

Now, the Independent Japanese Republic of Alaska is another story, but he is in North America on an honorable mission of peace...


I apologize to South Africa and Australia for the inartful statement. What I intended to say is that they only had a comparatively small presence in the America's. You say you "resemble that remark" . Is that an admission that you yourself are inartful.

Inartful? I would say that quoting Groucho Marx is the epitome of high art!

Not it is you I must apolagize to for not remembering the source of the remark though I might argue that quoting Groucho as opposed to Karl is actually the highest of low art (and therefore still far from inartful).

Now you can get back to inspecting and measuring respective unit (strength) sizes Generalissimo.

It really would be more accurate to say that the coward fears a thousand deaths, while the hero he fears none (or perhaps one at the last moment).

One might note that Homer agrees with Ecclesiastes when he has Achilles say that "I would rather be above earth and work as a laborer to an-other, a man with no land of his own and little livelihood,than be king over all the lifeless dead."

And we continue on. Spring 2019 orders are due 5/25 11:59pm GMT, 7pm EST

The peasants of Egypt are getting tired. They saw their noble country...the LEADER of early civilization get squashed early...but these upstarts. Then, JUST as they were getting it turned around, their leader misses a CRUCIAL season to direct their troops. They don't care that 90% of the glacier is below water...they want a leader who wont abandon them. They don't care about experience. They want someone who isn't afraid to take a little risk to put them back to the forefront of the world power. They want DANGERBOY...*cue entrance music*. All communications with Egypt shall now go through dangerboy.

I tried to stay with you, but Germany snuck into my room and head a pillow over my face.

Poor departed Alman's memory is clearly damaged by his departure ordeal or perhaps from frostbite incurred during his campaigns in the far north of the Old and New Worlds. I did not sneak into his room. I went there at the request of several of his neighbors who were disturbed by his late night drinking, carousing and snoring.

I merely sang him an old German lullaby "Guten Abend, gute Nacht, mit Rosen bedacht, mit Näglein besteckt, schlupf′ unter die Deck!". Since I did not have roses and cloves at hand I did toss some bright throw rugs and several pillows on the bed to bedeck it as per the song. If one landed on or next to Alman's head and his inebriated condition prevented his moving so as to breath more easily...I really am quite sorry.
