  morfishine: Any discussion on the US Revolutionary War, War of 1812, US Civil War, Spanish-American War, WW1, WW2, Korean War or Vietnam War is most welcome here.


Nov-26-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Okay. Us English burnt down the White House. Great stuff. I'd be grateful x20000000 if someone did it today. Go on Madonna.
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <DrWinstonOboogie> LOL, I have much sympathy with your comments, especially for all those British soldiers shot down at the gates of New Orleans after the war was over. A pity communication was so slow

A strange war was the War of 1812, what with the massively powerful British Navy finding itself utterly baffled in its inability to neutralize a measly 6 United States frigates

A big current pity in the US today is that many voters voted for Trump to keep that Commie Hillary out. I did, and its the first time I've done that: vote for somebody to keep the other candidate out. Sadly, it was a necessity to stop the movement toward communism, which is basically, worldwide slavery

Trump is a sad case, but he's better than those Social-Democrats who don't give a rats arse about the United States Constitution


Dec-01-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: I was only messing apart from burning down the White House, lol. Anyways I know you love this stuff so have a look when you've got time.. It's JFK's Life story, it's over 3 hours so I recommend getting exactly half way through and then watching it. It's not conspiracy oriented it's just a biography from those who were there but after watching it, and after seeing what he did to the CIA I'm convinced the CIA were involved in his assassination.. Here's a President I could respect

Let me know when you've watched that because I want to point out a few things I noticed that I'd never thought of before.

  morfishine: Thanks much Mark, I enjoy JFK related stuff

  offramp: Good to see you on the Statistics Page as one of the most frequent kibitzers. Did you know you were on it?
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Thanks <offramp>!

There are many links at <CG> that I am unaware of. Perhaps I should maximize my premium membership and try to visit some of these links

Sorry I don't comment on all your witty remarks, I read most if not all and find them highly enjoyable!

This year I will nominate you for funniest poster


Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Thank you! I always look forward to <your> posts. They are really funny!

  morfishine: Hey <Dr Winston OBoogie> did you see Rooney's 59 yard goal to secure the hat trick? Incredible:

Jan-03-18  Dr Winston OBoogie: Morf.. I've only just checked the forums now mate (It's been a crazy month!) so I didn't see your post. I saw Rooney getting abused by Utd fans yesterday which just shows you how fickle football is. I'm not Rooney's biggest fan but he did more for that club bar any player than Ryan Giggs over the last 20+ years so I was very disappointed with Man Utd fans. Astonishing placement from Rooney though, pity he couldn't do it for England after.... <2004!>

Anyways.. You voted for Trump (I'm not having a go at you) so what do you think of his first year in charge and what do you reckon to his tweets that people are <pleading> with the GOP to go 25th amendment over?

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: Happy New Year to you, too, <morf>!

  thegoodanarchist: <morf>

I hope you understand that my "outrage" regarding the GOTD pun was tongue-in-cheek, about as real as fake news.

I am glad the pun got used.

I am not so optimistic that "The Smeller's the Feller" will be used.

Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> Absolutely

GL with "Smellers"

  Jimfromprovidence: <Morf> Thanks for the kind words. I lost my wife to cancer last May.

Thankfully, my son and his family live close by so we are able lean on each other to get through things.

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <morf> you probably already know this, but the Japanese came out with an awesome fighter toward the end of the war, which could stand up to the US Hellcat an Corsair.

I read about it in wikipedia here:

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: My favorite fighter of WW2 is the Me-262 Schwalbe (Swallow), a twin-engine jet.

What a beautiful plane! And about 100 mph faster than our P-51 Mustang, which is my favorite prop-driven fighter of the war, and probably the all-around best prop-driven fighter of the war as well. Yeager beat at least one Me-262 in his P-51.

There is an authentic Me-262 on display in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, which is my favorite Smithsonian. What beautiful lines it has...

Good thing Hitler wanted to make it a ground attack plane. That saved our bacon. The FW-190 was bad enough to deal with during the unescorted strategic bombing runs of 1943. Imagine if our bomber crews had to face jets!

Have you ever been to the Smithsonian? If you ever get a chance, check out that plane! They even have an old film from the war showing one of them taking off, IIRC. I watched it about 8 times :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <morf> thanks for th link. I will check it out later when I have some time.

Let us know about any humorous anecdotes that occur.
