Happy Armistice Day!


Happy Armistice Day, everybody.

But as nice as it is to reflect that today one of the messiest wars in human history came to an end, it's sobering to realize that the soddy way it was resolved resulted in an even deadlier war: WWII.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.


  1. Well, uh. Thanks. Happy Armistice Day to you too, then, you supheed (word verification: it's what your blog would call you if it could talk).

  2. It's amazing to look back on history and see how it was likely that WWI would've been a very short war, with the French being trounced by bellicose Kaiser Wilhelm I, and life would've gone on -- no power vacuum for Hitler to step into.
