  1. Sparks is the gift that keeps on giving. I thought the whole point of bicycle infantry was that it was a cheap way of getting your troops to move faster.... Kinda hard to imagine the Japanese Army racing down the Malay peninsula on bicycles like they did in '42 when each of the soldiers has to tow a trailer loaded with god-knows-what.
  2. This website? That article was my first encounter with Sparks btw, and I think it's just perfect. Repeat misunderstandings of the way equipment was/is designed and employed, endless use of buzzwords only Sparky and his ilk know, insisting that failed shit from the past was actually great and should be replicated today, childish insults and aspersions about actual officers, ranting and raving about moron historians who he knows so much more than, and the inexplicable pictures of women's cleavage at the bottom. But probably my favorite part is when he praises a U.S. Army turretless l
  3. You guys already seem to have a concept for the next competition, but an idea for one of these just came to me and I wanted to put it in writing: The year is 1936, and you are an engineer for a private company which is known to design and build tanks or other armored vehicles for select customers (Vickers, Renault, CKD/Skoda, Marmon-Herrington, Krupp, Landsverk, Fiat-Ansaldo, etc.). Alternately, you are an independent madman entrepreneur with an interest in designing tanks, like J. W. Christie or Edward Grotte. Tensions in the far east are rising and the Chinese gover
  4. Many seals were clubbed with a C.205 to acquire this plane Edit: Also, how do I get my screenshots from WT to not look so potato?
  5. Yeah, the Wirbelwind is pretty disgusting. At ranges under ~200 meters it seems to be perfectly capable of shredding Cromwells, Valentines, and M10s from the front. What really ticks me off about it (and the Ostwind) though is that so many players will put shrubbery and other camo on the turret, so I'll see a Pz.IV hull and instinctively aim for the spot on the hull where you can get most of the crew with a single hit, only to have the shell go right under the feet of the 3 men sitting high in the turret. The Wirbelwind will then notice me (if he hadn't already), spin his turret around, and sp
  6. Yep, tough cars. And much more interesting than the Priuses that are coming to dominate the taxi market where I live.
  7. Here's a big collection of pictures from several auctions I attended at the James G. Murphy auctioneers in Kenmore, Washington
  8. Since photobucket has locked all my photos on the first page behind a paywall, I'll have to dig the originals up out of my old computer. But in the meantime, enjoy this 1957 Plymouth Fury, photographed in the wild in the vast wasteland of southern Snohomish county. And here's some Volkswagen thing I don't know anything about: And I thought riced-out civics looked bad:
  9. I've been playing a lot of Hearts of Iron IV lately, mostly doing wacky stuff like taking over all of Africa while playing as Portugal and making divisions composed entirely of T92s. Very addicting game though. There's some very nice mods made for it, too.
  10. I must really need to be getting more sleep, because for a good few seconds there I was having quite a time picturing you murdering your computer with one of these held firmly in hand.
  11. Yeah, the "Insider" series started raising red flags for me when the supposed insider kept telling them how they'd gotten everything right. Also the bit about there being different RNG for unicums and employees seems really suspect.
