Does this street make my tank look fat?

My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

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

Is that a Centurion? The lettering on the turret looks like it says 'MFOR' but I am only aware of IFOR, SFOR, and KFOR.


EDIT: N/M. MFOR = Macedonia Force. And now the tank looks like an early Leopard 2.

its a POS.
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.

S-35s were pretty decent tanks for their timeframe and had good armor and reasonable speed and maneuverability. It's gun was probably better than what the Panzers had (at least until PZ3s got upgraded to 50mm). The French just didn't really have a good idea as to how to use them, spreading their tanks quite thinly across their formations and not equipping them with enough radios. The main *integral* drawback to the S-35 (and a number of French tanks of the time) was that the Commander was also the gunner and had to narrow his focus while firing at the immediate threat, thus possibly losing sight of the bigger picture. Also, iirc, the Somua had a big-assed hatch on the back of the turret that, while being opened, allowed anyone nearby to easily throw 'splody things inside or take pot-shots from further away.

right about the back hatch Staggerin',

the S35 is awesome Star... great rate of fire... a fine reticle closing speed, and decent damage
