I don't know if anyone has seen this - but this was the World War III standoff at Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin in 1961. I only found out about it on a recent visit to the city



here's a link to a brief description of it

thats one of the most famous Cold War photos ever.
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.

WoT re-enactment?
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

Well the guy that's talking thought Berlin was split down the middle because it was on the border between East and West  :crazy2:

I haven't done a whole lot of early cold war stuff.
