Why not have a footrace from the Belgium-France border to Paris? With white being the mandatory jersey color for participants...


I kid of course and always defend against the "surrender monkey" type attacks. Just making a point that all perspectives are important when using an important location/name/date for an event. My laptop/internet are horrible ATM so I couldn't fully explore that site so if I am overreacting then that might be why...

"And which ones of you assholes are Marines?"

"You fuckers are the worst, you smug bastards have killed more CDF soldiers than any alien species - doing things that Marine fucking way instead of the way they're supposed to be done. You probably had 'Semper Fi' tattoos somewhere on your old body, didn't you? Didn't you?!"

Well, this book just became intense, and I love it. Old green people making the universe great for humanity!
