<TD> First tanks were used by the British in 1915 at <The Battle of the Somme>.
<The Second battle of Cambrai> in 1918 is a notable tank battle.

|Sep-07-18|| ||technical draw: Sunday is Rosh Hashanah the Jewish new year. It is the first day of what is known as the "days of awe" (ימים נוראים), culminating on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the jewish calendar. |
Unfortunately when most people hear Yom Kippur they think of the 1973 Yom Kippur war. From the sublime to the ignoble. That is the way of the world.

Reminds me of that Jewish Rock and Roll band...
Rosh HaSha Na Na.

Giving new meaning to the phrase "That joke killed in Jerusalem!"

Wasn't Bowser Jewish?

Wasn't Bowser Jewish?>
He may have been. He was my fave, regardless of race or religion.
I don't really pay attention to that stuff, except for asian chicks (you know who you are! Drop a dime in my forum, ladies)
I liked the way Bowser flexed at the end of each show. It inspired me to exercise.
My brother and I got into weightlifting in our teens, long long after the show Sha Na Na ended.
We saw a rerun, after we had both lifted weights for a while. My brother asked me "Remember when we thought Bowser was buff??" (Buff meant "well muscled" back then)
Tis true, Bowser wasn't so big...

|Sep-08-18|| ||technical draw: Thanks for visiting <adamd2>. I think you have the wrong forum. In any event that info should be useful for somebody.|
|Sep-09-18|| ||technical draw: Capitol cities have funny names. Hungary has Budapest. Buda from the religion and Pest from insects. Moscow. Mos is a form of the Spanish más which means more and Cow, thus More Cows. Washington D.C. is named after the first president and the fact that they use direct current as the electrical standard. I'm not making this up!|
Havana means Have a Banana. And Pyongyang because of the sound of ricocheting bullets caused by those trying to escape. Manila from the rapper Manila Ice. Canberra is Yogi Berra's father.
There are more but I won't post them because people would think I'm just making this stuff up.

|Sep-15-18|| ||Caissanist: What I've never understood about WWI is why this needed to be any of our business. Europe had been fighting horrific back-and-forth wars for hundreds of years before that, which always ground to a halt on their own eventually, but for some reason we decided that this time we should send our own army over there to settle things. A hundred years later, we're still there, and still the indispensable power for settling internal European disputes for another fifty years at least. A perfect example of how it is always easier to stay out than to get out.|

World War One (ALL PARTS)

A quote from an article by Jesse Barron.
|Sep-21-18|| ||technical draw: Darn, El-Al airlines has the worse internet site I've seen. As far as I can see it's the official El-Al site but it takes you to all kinds of places without any introduction on how to navigate the site. Maybe I'm on the wrong site. I'll try again.|
|Sep-22-18|| ||technical draw: <The same tactic was used by the IAF during ‘Operation Chess,’ the massive Israeli operation against Iranian military facilities and bases in Syria which destroyed roughly 50 Iranian targets in the country on May 10, 2018.>|
I wonder what opening they used?
|Sep-22-18|| ||JimNorCal: TD, the baby will be missed! You too, of course :)
|Sep-22-18|| ||jessicafischerqueen: |
<TD> I think I can help on this.
You might accidentally have gone to the Jor-El website, which does involve some flying, but in fact it is dedicated to Superman's father.
Here is scientific evidence: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jor-El
|Sep-23-18|| ||technical draw: <jfq> . You're right. No wonder they kept trying to sell me a red cape and a phone booth. I'm going back and buying one, I wonder if there is kryptonite in Israel?|
|Sep-23-18|| ||technical draw: <TheFocus> <Are you making Aliyah in 2019? >|
<Focus> I moved your comment to my forum I don't want to clutter the <chessgames.com> forum.
I will initially be going to Israel for 10 days. I will have a look see. I can extend my visit up to 6 months without a visa. If I have the wherewithal I might stay longer. I'm taking it one day at a time. Right now the baby disappears in 4 days.

Maybe they just want to keep their enemies guessing?
|Sep-23-18|| ||WannaBe: You gotta use the secret decoder ring to decipher the web page!|
|Sep-23-18|| ||technical draw: <diceman> <WannaBe> I just figured it out. You go to the airport and if you see a line going to an El-Al airplane you just jump in. That's very efficient. Since all El-Al flights are going to Israel why bother to make schedules?|
