    Good morning!  Happy Friday!

    Anyone have any interesting plans for this weekend? 

    Mine involve cleaning a litter box, a D&D game and packing up/leaving for a business trip to MN, so my bar for interesting isn't very high. 

    Aside from the usual household chores, I'll be going to check out Free RPG day tomorrow. 

    I also got some new stuff in the mail that needs to be inspected/played with.::D:

    Stop bickering about something that is pedantic and not at all relevant to the thread.

     

    I myself did not know what an FT-17 was, although I inferred that was some sort of armored vehicle. Plugging FT-17 into Google comes up with verification that it is indeed an armored vehicle; a tank in fact.

     

    Further Google research shows that the tankmuseum.org also refers to the vehicle in question as an FT-17. 

    Tanks-encyclopedia.com notes that the vehicle wasn't referred to as an FT-17 DURING WW1, however it picked up several variations of that name afterwards.

    I could go on, but the point is that quite a few actual historians refer to the vehicle as an FT-17, or some variation thereof.

    The term/name may not be 100% correct, but it's close enough for a layperson to figure out what is being referred to.

     

    You don't have to agree, you don't have to like it, but you DO need to stop and let this particular line of conversation go.

  3. Great write-up, thanks for sharing!

     

    Neat tip/idea: It's not as fast as what you've described, but I like to keep one of those Woodland Scenics molds around to jam leftover wads of green stuff into. It'd take forever (and wouldn't be cheap) to get a full piece like you have here, but for small rock pieces to add to a figure base, it works great.

    Question Oct. 12th.

    Did you ever got pranked on Halloween or pranked someone yourself?

    What happened?

    Well, that story I mentioned a little while back about setting myself on fire occurred at a Halloween party, so I'd say that counts.

     

    ETA---I never threw eggs/toilet paper or anything else at people/houses/cars/whatever. I didn't go in for mean spirited stuff when I was a kid.
