Celebrate the 4th...Ameritrash Style!



This week... is the 4th of July! There will be a fireworks show at twenty-one hundred hours! Chaplain Charlie will tell you about how the free world will conquer Communism with the aid of God and a few marines! God has a hard-on for marines because we kill everything we see! He plays His games, we play ours! To show our appreciation for so much power, we keep heaven packed with fresh souls! God was here before the Marine Corps! So you can give your heart to Jesus, but your ass belongs to the Corps! Do you ladies understand?


Happy 4th to our American readers...make sure to fill the holiday with some plastic-dude killin' and dice chuckin'.

I think it's time we start recognizing the AT movement as the gaming world's analog to the American Revolution...remember that time when Robert Martin and I dressed like master builders and threw copies of CAYLUS into the harbor?

...hmm... seems to me it was Master Baiters not builders. It was never clear to me exactly what was being "shot" into the harbor...

I mean, honestly...what better way to celebrate the holiday than with some awesome AT action?

You think our forefathers earned our independence by choosing to be a Builder before the British were ready? "By jove, we haven't enough pence for that, you villainous colonists!"


Even Nexus Ops makes for some good ID4 celebratin'...


"They might be Alien Scumbags, but since they're killing other Alien Scumbags, we're making them honorary Marines! Those other Aliens aren't on top of the Monolith, and if God would have wanted them up there he would have miracled their asses up there by now, wouldn't he?"

I've always wanted to snag a British school history book and see if our founding fathers are called "Patriots" in THOSE books as well!

Hoping to play some War of the Ring tomorrow. Somehow or another, this honors Independence Day I think.

I think they are referred to as 'revolting', but that is just a guess.

I shall celebrate the day by going to work as normal, just another Winter's day in Sydney. Maybe I'll get time to shoot down some Fokker in Blue Max on youplay.it during my lunch break.

Enjoy folks.

History in British school doesn't even bother covering what happened in America. There's a couple of thousand years of other stuff to get through.

Ah... Full Metal Jacket. Great movie. When it came out, a friend of mine special ordered the soundtrack, because he liked it so much. We used to argue the differences between Full Metal Jacket and Platoon over cheap beer. When we weren't playing Talisman and watching movies you'd find on MST3K, that is.

Happy Fourth, and go blow something up on the gameboard.

Or play We the People.

I'm sure it will be kept brief. Embarrassing bits of history often are. Example . . . I learned very little about Vietnam in school. But I sure learned a LOT about PWNING those Redcoats, single-handedly winning WW1 and 2, and inventing flying cars . . .

A conversation overheard in Washington DC, 1915:

"We should get involved in the war!"

"No, let em tire each other out first."

A conversation overheard in Ottawa 1915:

"Sir our boys arrived in Flanders and were immediately gassed."

"What the fuck - they're tired already?"

"No sir - Chlorine!"

Happy belated Canada Day (I am regaining consciousness) and Independence Day.
