Leo2 actually... C:-)

If I was a sentry watching that crest over the hill coming toward me... the distinction would be lost on my bladder completely.
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

The article discusses the Soviet T-20 tank, derived from the T-18 (which is itself derived from the Renault FT). However, the picture used is of the American T-20 prototype tank, meant to be a replacement for the M-4.

It's hard to imagine that the author thought this:



was derived from this:

Sheesh! One clearly has horizontally sprung suspension, the other vertical!

its an awesome tank.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.
