  • These two might be my fav “war poems”

    “Dulce et decorum est”

    Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,

    Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,

    Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs,

    And towards our distant rest began to trudge.

    Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots,

    But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;

    Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots

    Of gas-shells dropping softly behind.

    Gas! GAS! Quick, boys!—An ecstasy of fumbling

    Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time,

    But someone still was yelling out and stumbling

    And flound’ring like a man in fire or lime.—

    Dim through the misty panes and thick green light,

    As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

    In all my dreams before my helpless sight,

    He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

    If in some smothering dreams, you too could pace

    Behind the wagon that we flung him in,

    And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,

    His hanging face, like a devil’s sick of sin;

    If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood

    Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,

    Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud

    Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,—

    My friend, you would not tell with such high zest

    To children ardent for some desperate glory,

    The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
    Pro patria mori.

    – Owens (died 1 week before armistice day)


    The Bishop tells us: ‘When the boys come back

    ‘They will not be the same; for they’ll have fought

    ‘In a just cause: they lead the last attack

    ‘On Anti-Christ; their comrades’ blood has bought

    ‘New right to breed an honourable race,

    ‘They have challenged Death and dared him face to face.’

    ‘We’re none of us the same!’ the boys reply.

    ‘For George lost both his legs; and Bill’s stone blind;

    ‘Poor Jim’s shot through the lungs and like to die;

    ‘And Bert’s gone syphilitic: you’ll not find

    ‘A chap who’s served that hasn’t found some change.

    ‘ And the Bishop said: ‘The ways of God are strange!’

    – Sassoon (also served in WWI)

  • And on a football note, I think someone brought up the 3rd round becoming somewhat of the last battle ground between agent and GM in new scale.


  • I’ll be interested to monitor this Oline philo. Seemed to work for the Cowboys. But jury still out till they win that ring I suppose.

    Dolphins C Mike Pouncey said there is “a lot of talent” on Miami’s offensive line.

    After adding Laremy Tunsil on the first day of the draft, the Dolphins now have four first-round picks on the offensive line. “I would have never believed that, but I’m looking forward to it,” Pouncey said. “We spent a lot of money on this offensive line, so it better be
    [good].” Pouncey, Tunsil, LT Branden Albert and RT Ja’Wuan James all boast first-round pedigrees. If Tunsil is able to get comfortable at guard and all four stay healthy, the Dolphins should have a stronger offensive line this season. – Roto

    • Captain Obvious

      They’re putting Tunsil at guard? I thought he was a prototype LT?

      • Yes, I was a little confused too, but I think gone are the days of not inserting protypical LTs at OG I guess.

        We did the same really. Many assumed Long would eventually be a LT because he too had fit the LT blueprint, but that didn’t exactly unfold.

        I know I was a little worried about Long at OG because he’s tall. However, maybe he’s shown other clubs that a LT body can handle the interior.

    Speaks for more than one war.

    Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

    Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

    But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

      I wish people still talked like that.

      • And more importantly, MEANT it.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Not many talked like that then! He could turn a phrase could Abe. The Bixby letter was a good one (featured in Saving Private Ryan):

        Dear Madam,

        I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

        Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

        A. Lincoln

    RIP Spc. Ray White. It’s been almost 12 years, but I can’t forget. It was my fault, Ray.

    • SC Dave

      Shit… I wish I knew what so say.

      Find peace, brother.

    So I got this email, and two others from Hotels.com saying I tried to book this caribbean hotel room:


    Except: That’s not my CC #. I don’t see charges on my card. I am not Colina Batt.

    So, my question is: what kind of scam is it that they send you false charges from hotels.com and just falsely give out your email? I put TFA on my email, so I really don’t think it’s poached. Any ideas?

    • MB30SD

      Well…. collin…I think you should do a little detective work and go check it out personally.

    • Old Broken Romanian Jericho

      exactly, your quick one night ladyboi sex romp is in Thailand…NOT…Bali. Uh, Colina would you like snacks brought to your room for you and your friends?

    • willbest

      Probably looking for someone to respond with my cc is #, or clicking on the link puts a virus on your computer. Doubt hotels gave out your email to scammers.

    • CanadaBear

      I had a call from Canada Revenue Agency (Canada’s version of the IRS) just last night saying if I didn’t pay up over $10,000.00 I was going to jail for 90 days minimum. After a lively discussion I told the scamming cocksucker to fuck off and hung up.

      • Old Broken Romanian Jericho

        When you asked him why he had a thick Nigerian accent and spoke in broken Canadian he replied calmly, “I’m part of the Canadian government’s new program, Give A Pirate a Chance”.
        Gov’t jobs divvied up amongst former Somali and Nigerian pirates who have shown an aptitude for customer service.

        • CanadaBear

          Sounded more Pakistani than anything but who knows? Judging from his reaction to being called a “scamming cocksucker” his English comprehension was pretty good!

      • willbest

        I don’t know how it is in Canada, but in the US they first send a letter saying you got some splain’ to do.

        • CanadaBear

          Pretty much the same thing up here. I’ve read about this scam so I wasn’t shocked. Revenue Canada really likes me. My IRA funds my retirement and after I pay US taxes I get to pay the difference between the US and Canadian tax rates to Canada. Basically I’m paying the higher Canadian rate on my income. The taxes are so convoluted my returns are a couple of dozen pages with all the foreign tax credits, etc. Oh well, I love living in Canada and the health care component is great.

      i started getting bills a couple months ago for cell phones and credit cards i did not have. Check https://www.creditkarma.com/ to see if there is any bogus activity that you don’t know about.

      One good rule of thumb is to change your password every so often. That way any scammers who’ve hacked your account somehow will get booted out. Saving your password in your browser can result in your password being lifted with a script.
