Well, as yall know today is Cinco de Mayo. Im sure some of you think this is Mexican Independence day or some shit, but I know shackers are generally a smart group and know that La Batalla (battle) de Cinco de Mayo was actually a fight between the Mexicans and the French.

When Benito Juarez was president, Mexico owed a LOT of money to other nations, including Spain and France. So, Juarez permited these nations to stay in the harbours of Mexico to collect money. Under Napoleon III, the French decided they wanted to take Mexico. With the US in Civil war, the Monroe Doctrine was not going to be much of an issue. So, the French took over and pushed Juarez and his constitutional democracy north. One of the key battles to kick the French out and obviously one of the biggest was what the Mexicans call "La Batalla de no intervencion." The big name from this battle was Porfilo Diaz who then became ruler of Mexico durring the last half of the 19th century and brought Mexico up to speed with the rest of the world, while keeping the poor opressed.

Anyhoo, last July I visited "Las Fuertas" (The forts) in Puebla where the battle was fought and my little digital camera was there.

Large flag outside the museum. Note the hill there. This would NOT have been a fun place to fight a war.

The grass where a lot of the fighting took place.
The sign reads: Here died 100s of (our) compadres on the 5th of May of 1862 for defending the pinciple of "No Intervention"

This shows a tactic that kinda fucked up the french when they tried to storm the walls of the fort. They thought the walls were not as high, and they got stuck down in that little trench.

The gates to the fort (and museum now inside) and some poor old mexican gaurd

A view from inside the fort looking at the walls.

Puebla is up in the mountains and you can see how quickly the land drops off from these fort walls. You can also see the city in this picture.

Thats one of the Volcanos that surrounds Puebla. I think this is La Malinche but it could be Popocatepetl. I never really learned which was which.

Another view outside the fort. Again you can see how this helped a few mexicans kick a lot of French ass!

There are some more pictures there, including the HQ shots. One that doesnt have to do with the forts but I know you will ask me about is

We caught a bus to go back from the forts and in the median area between a side street and the main road was this dog carcus. Dogs are EVERYWHERE in Mexico and I think I saw 3-4 different dog carcuses

I dont want to end on a sad note, so Feliz Cinco de Mayo!!!

Okay, I love Andy Kaufman and thus I saw Man on the Moon w/ Jim Carrey 3-4 times in theatre. Hiw whole story just makes me run the gambit of emotions. However, in the movie Jerry Lawler appears as himself and they show that it was faked. Also in Zamunda's (Kaufman's best friend) book it talks about how it was all faked.

The story is great and is more proof why Kaufman == pure genuis. He could work the crowd like no one else. Anyhoo, whoever wrote that AP peice is an idiot.

I looked @ a bottle of RC Cola and 7up and Dr Pepper yesterday and saw they all came from Waco, TX (used to be bottled here in Wichita)

I know now where I must go...

Sometimes I can even amaze myself! I was wrong tho, it was an RC bottling plant. They also do 7up so thats why I got confused. I still see RC Cola on the shelves all the time, just no Peach Nehi. I say to myself, why the hell not? Its a great soda, anyone would drink and LOVE it!

When I was a kid there was a vending machine in my gradeschool from 7up that sold Peach Nehi. This is the single best pop I have EVER had. Well, after I left that school in the 3rd grade it was many years later until I found it again in Charleston, SC. I bought a few bottles when I was in the 6th grade and took them home. They have such a cool design and look that I saved two. A few years ago after not finding it for years and years I decided to drink one. It had NO carbonation (the bottle had shrunk in on itselfs) but still tasted wonderful on ice. Then, the summer before last I was in Guthrie Oklahoma and I stumbled across some! I bought $20 worth (every single bottle he had) and left with a big grin. Well, I drank two on the way back to Kansas. I had 2 left in the fridge and my f*cking roomate drank them both. I could have shot him. Anyways, I was in a Mexican Foodmarket here in Wichita and I found a product called "Big Peach." Ive been had by fakes before but I perked up when I say that it was bottled by 7up. I bought one bottle, tried it and well its been so long I dont know if its the exact same, but its damn close. Its pretty damn good, but I would love to find the original or atleast get some info on this badboy! THIS is what I keep in reserve!

They can get that from the fingers and the screen shots. Nothing in this alpha isnt something that has not been seen at e3 or talked about to death. Im sure id watches epic and epic watches id and 3dr does the above too but I doubt they put much focus into it

"on a lot of gaming sites"

Id have to search if blue has ever said anything about having an illegal mp3 or two. Maybe he would post and clarify. I do beleive blue likes to link to aicn (since I found aicn through blue).

I was talking in general (a lot of gaming sites). Shacknews (a site with a message board I am addicted to) has this same queer duality (see the rules, movies bad, mp3s good).

How many Mp3s of songs you didnt buy do you have or ever had?
Have any DivX?
Ever read a movie script or supported sites like aicn (by going to their website) that get leaked scripts?
Download a book you didnt pay for?

The double standard on a lot of gaming sites perplexes me.

Downloading a game iso is bad - but its okay to download an album?

Getting this unfinished alpha is bad - but its okay to get the leaked movie scripts (or read an aicn article on it)?

The cups have holes in them to let the air pass through, making it easier to drop :<

I saw some footage on the news of a cup stacking tourny and there were TONS of kiddies doing this and no problems what so ever...

my point was if you can not think of how it would be possible for you to live through a shot to the face, see the example of ed norton in fightclub
