Re: Classic Wings of Liberty (Puberty)

ah man, tough break... I would be beyond livid. Nothing pisses me off more than an idiot that can't tell friend from foe. On;y thing that would have been worse if the 109 shot you out of your parachute . Well something like that did happen in the real war; though the case I know off was a Spitfire ...

Re: Politics and other garbage thread

I hadn't considered it was quite so dangerous, Bunny, but I've got the answer I wanted. Now I can surprise my wife with a ticket for a luxury cruise; the 'surprise' would have been less startling if it turned out that the world was in fact not flat. A bloody waste of money as well.

Thanks mate :B:

Right away I realised that the flightsimming I had been doing for the last 11-12 years was utter bs; I had never 'flown' before until I did it in 3d! I have often seen and heard guys ...

Re: Interesting

That's not really surprising though, considering the scale of the Eastern Front, covering it satisfactorily ...

Re: Oculus Rift, convince me not to buy one...
