Around here they go for the cheekbones with brass knuckles. One guy holds you from behind the other does the punching. And there's no saftety in numbers. They'll just walk right into a crowded restaurant at noon and lift you out of your seat and do you right then and there with calm impunity.
am sick and tired of short men approaching me thinking that because Im a short girl, I like short guys. I HATE SHORT GUYS! Just because Im short doesnt mean I dont prefer the tall, dark, and handsome guys like the rest of us women. I really wish all men shorter than 62″ should be rounded up and shot.
Of course back in those days where people were steeped in romantic literature instead of the cyncial banalities of TV and the internet and movies, people really did see their lives in glamorous and even heroic terms, particularly if they were of the patrician class.
It's a little bit blush making (as Evelyn Waugh's bright young things would say) to us today to read their diaries and letters and hear them talk about themselves in these terms.

The Aegean archipelago is rich in natural gas deposits. This whole thing was arranged so that the big bankers could steal the Greek's islands and gas and oil rights while blocking Russia's and Turkey's efforts to run energy pipelines to supply Europe from their own vast reserves. This is a preamble to WWIII.
It's part and parcel with the arranged deposition of Italy's Berlusconi and replacement by an unelected Goldman Sach's banker technocrat.
hey if you were drafted and were training in some far off land to ride some unseaworthy steel tub landing craft into a heavily fortified beach head with over 100lbs of gear loaded on to you you'd be pretty reasonable to think that you stood a good chance of dying horribly in the immediate future.

So every broad in England dressed up to the nines and went out Yankee hunting. There wasn't a doorway in London that didn't have a GI sliding his bone up some brit slut's skirt in it.

One of the biggest fuck fests in history
