    ....The Konig Albert is the ship I have done best with the past few years....I picked it up when they warned it was going off the market and it was easily the best buy I ever made....It competes with T4 well even though it's a T3....In fact I hope they don't ever bring it back for sale because it's that rare and useful, I feel distinctive conning it....even though my overall kill ratio is only 0.81 in randoms because my first few years of playing I still had a lot to learn, in the Fat Albert it's about 2.14. ....I think historically though, the coolest ship is the Iowa, BB-61, which is near me in San Pedro (port of Los Angeles)---visited her once and had a blast.

    ...Thank you too, you're very sweet for a wolf....Supposedly one of them was a sort of step-Mom to two of my ancestors.

    I don't know, but I do know that the African swallow is non-migratory.....at least according to the Pythons. Yes, I encountered Cleopatra at Actium and gave her fleet a proper hiding....She was so distraught apparently she topped herself by letting an asp bite her.....heckuva a way to go. And no, I haven't heard of that particular Ferret.

    ....I take it you know Tora from the movie "Tora, Tora, Tora," which was about the Pearl Harbor raid....No, there's no special signifigance otherwise....And yes the Akula class was a Soviet sub, an SSN if memory serves, not a SSBN boomer.

    ....I've fielded fewer times than you might think, so I'm happy to do it again.....It's a portmanteau (two words that have been joined into one, like "spork" for a spoon with tines)....Tora is the Japanese word for tiger and Akula is the Russian work for shark.....

    Two reasons: I've always been fascinated by war history, and in particular the ancient Romans and Greeks.....I studied a lot of it in college. .....Also, my best friend once said my ears look just like his--which is true....I have to say that he's a touch more handsome than I am though....and a lot thinner.

    I know, right?....and that's a lot more wood than I thought a cord was--our friend the woodchuck has his work cut out for him then....It's both impossible and he'd have to bite off more than he could chew.

    ....I know right?....If you're looking for great historical fiction, there's an author called Harris who did a trilogy told from the persective one of Cicero's slaves, his scribe, Tiro--one of the three deals with Julius Caeser and is called "The Dictator"...check it out.

    I don't know the difference, but now that you mention it I'm curious....Enlighten us.

    ....I'm not expert on woodchuck, but just to go along with the gag I'd say a few cords a week....

    ....yes!....one of my fave pizzas is the Hot Hawaiian, which is w/jalapenos as well as the pinneaples, and ham.

    ....I noticed this before, but I just reached 1,600 posts too--I was wondering if I'd get promoted for that. ....sure enough, I'm a Lieutenant now...yay me. ...."A modest thing, but thine own," --somebody from some Shakespeare play.

    ....That's a good question....I'd have to estimate ....It's gotten to be less and less since I started since I got to where I had all the ships I could use or want, but I'd say about $600.
