War is a part of history. Battles are a part of history. Some of our greatest creations came through with the idea of it being made into a weapon first.
How many rings are in their trees? Do they have trees that are so wide a car could fit through them?
Do we have the Roman Colosseum? Do we have the Acropolis at Greece? Do we have Paris' splendor, or Switzerland's Alps?
See what I did there?
I remember the last time St. Helens blew, but St. Helens wasn't his original name, nor was May 18th 1980 the first time he blew. Mt. Tahoma (AKA Rainier) has blown in the past too. Which war was going on in Europe then? What about the last time that Mt. Baker blew? Mt. Adams? Which European war was happening then?
Mount Vesuvius, but thats the extent of my knowledge on that part.
Though, I have heard things about the German black forest, I don't know how many rings those trees have.
Chop one down and count.
Just read the rest of your post...don't say base ball in this discussion, it is born from cricket. And cricket is the most boring sport ever invented. Obviously invented by a peoples with way too much time on their hands.
Especially when one game takes 5 days. I know, I know, India/Pakistan are changing this now...but even an hour of cricket is BORING!
Oh, and I love Sammy Clemens.
He was sooo sarcastic and right on!
I hate baseball just as much as the next guy, but it's part of our heritage. Not nearly as much as it was before, but...
Well, I always remember every game I ever went to with my dad. It wasn't like a football game, or a hockey game, which as a sport I've always loved 100x more. It's just the fact that it's OUR game. It's another brick in our wall, pardon the tacky analogy.
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.
Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.
Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.
War = Life
