  1. This car punished the driver for wrecking it. Mopars don’t **** around.
  2. My point was that they rush to play the Muslim card loudly when Muslims are targeted, but are deliberately avoiding tying the Easter attacks to Christians by name, as if not naming the religion under attack absolves the attackers of their obvious intent.
  3. Today is the 104th anniversary of Red Sunday; The day the Turks began rounding up educated Armenians in Constantinople, kicking off the genocide that lasted more than eight years and killed as many as 1.5 million Armenian Christians. Historians believe that the 'deportation' of the Armenian intellectuals, as they were called, was a decapitation strike, to help prevent an organized resistance to the slaughter that ensued. And today in history, politicians and newsies refer to Christians as 'Easter Worshipers' in the press, after yet another massacre at the hands of Muslims has occurred. This is ****ing pathetic.
  4. Suit yourself, but you are missing out on an epic drama series. To each his own.

    Chuck Norris wouldn't have anything to avenge. No one would be stupid enough to screw with him in the first place.
  6. It's a Graham. This was an Art Deco-inspired car, made in the mid-to-late thirties. If you search for shark nose Graham on Google Images, you will find plenty of them. Keep in mind that 'shark nose' is not its name, merely descriptive.
  7. The Ottoman Empire was also known as The Turkish Empire, or simply as Turkey. Modern day Turkey is what is left of the Ottoman Empire, after it was partitioned and suffered the loss of its Middle Eastern territories, in the aftermath of WWI. The Armenian Genocide, as well as the genocides against ethnic Assyrians and Christian Greeks continued for several years after the fall of the Ottoman Empire, by what was becoming and later was the Republic of Turkey. The society and culture that committed these atrocities still exists and are still actively denying that the extermination attempts were genocides.
  8. I once made a sniper shot so good in Call of Duty 2, that the guy I shot said that I cheated. We were on the El Alamein map, both of us on rooftops nearly on opposite sides of the map. There was a brick missing in wall above the roof level of a building I was looking at and periodically, something passed behind the hole, blocking it. So, I aimed at the hole with the sniper rifle and waited. When the hole went dark, I fired and got a head-shot on him. I was really proud of that shot.
  9. It should also be mentioned that at the same time the Turks were exterminating ethnic Armenians, they also carried out a similar genocide against ethnic Assyrian Christians and ethnic Greek Christians within their borders. As many as 300,000 Assyrians were killed and as many as 750,000 Greeks as well.
  10. Yeah. I don't know if Turkey's feelings about Armenians is based on guilt or a continued hatred of them, but they still seem to see themselves as the ones wearing the white hats. I don't get it.
  11. The 104th anniversary of the beginning of the Armenian Genocide is coming up Weds, April 24th. As many as 1,500,000 ethnic Armenians were murdered by the Ottoman Empire (Turkey). Armenia is a predominantly Christian nation, whose roots in Christianity stretch back to the 1st century AD. They became the first nation to adopt Christianity as a state religion, in 301 AD. The subjugation and persecution of the Armenian people by the Islamic states of Persia (Iran) and the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) began centuries ago. Even before the efforts to exterminate the Armenians in what became known as the Armenian Genocide began in 1915, there were many, many other massacres carried out by the Turks. Interesting enough, the term 'Genocide' was coined in 1943, by Raphael Lemkin, who coined the phrase and defined it specifically because of what happened to the Armenian people. To this day, Turkey disputes the number of people killed and refuses to acknowledge the attempted extermination of the Armenian people, at the hands of the Turks, was a genocide. I looked up information on this tragedy because of an Anthony Bourdain episode I recently watched, where he visited Armenia. His host there was Serj Tankian, the lead singer of the band System of a Down, who is an Armenian and resides there. I'm a fan of the band and enjoyed the episode. Anyway, this is an episode in history that few people in the US are aware of, so I thought I'd post this. I find it really ironic that the term genocide was coined because of atrocities carried out by members of the religion of peace. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenian_Genocide
