A fitting thread image; thank you, Mac.

May we always be worthy of prevailing over our enemies…and do so.

Well put, Fatwa.

My father had a run in with security at the memorial when he visited it maybe 30 years ago. He was never too forthcoming about the whole thing, but he apparently strongly objected to Japanese tourists laughing as they took numerous pictures.

A reflective Caturday, Gerbil Nation.
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

15 years ago we visited the USS Arizona memorial with Teh Older’s Scout Troop, as guests of the US Navy. We toured Ford Island in a launch and were able to see the other memorials that are not open to the public.

Morning, Mac! Harper and a guy at school once made nitroglycerin in his bathtub, and had to call his big brother (a fireman) when they realized they didn’t know how to dispose of it. She was always doing crazy stuff like this, but since she had the face and voice of an angel, no one ever suspected her.

Nitroglycerin is easy enough to synthesize -- assuming you can control the exothermic reaction and not blow yourself up in the process.

I didn’t do that kind of stuff, although I loved mixing random chemicals together. I think I was more like an Alchemist as a kid. I’m very lucky I never got dangerous combination.

Managed to get up slightly before noon this morning. Still sick but definitely not been a bad one.

it’s almost 2020 and Skyrim is still the best game ever.
