Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

As the year draws to a close, I managed to read two Osprey books, the first being Warrior #111: The Hun: Scourge of God AD 375 - 565, which gave some interesting background material, and the second was Fortress #55: Cathar Castles: Fortresses of the Albigensian Crusade 1209 - 1300, which has some very cool-looking fortifications in it, for possible future use in my Rolemaster game...

Yesterday evening's festivities concluded with the last episode on disk 1 of 24; the plot seems to be getting more predictable... We'll see how disk 2 goes, later.

A cultural thing

So, I walk out of the office, and I see that the flag is at half-mast. Now, I know what it means; I start thinking, "Who died? Oh, yeah, Ford." And then I realize that that is just a cultural thing; the flag's position is something that our culture recognizes. Other cultures might interpret that as simply someone was too lazy to raise the flag all the way up...

Just a thought...
