Re: Russian Limo gets Close!
Thats pretty ingenious.
Couple of pics of an Armoured Zil Limo.
Just you Janus :lol: :lol: Give you a challenge, what's a Klaus Flouride? :lol:
welcome to the over 25's & TOG
Welcome to TOG, the best spot on the net!
Is that anything like a Rusty Nail? A Slippery Nipple?
It's not a cocktail that tastes like toothpaste that you have at Christmas, is it? 8)
He's a muso, isn't he?
BUGGER! :lol: :lol: :lol: yeh he is Janus. I think it's time to change your nick mate, Eienstein would be more like it. :lol:
Hello and welcome
Einstein mate. Only 2 "E"'s.
Just did a bit of checking.. Dead Kennedys, hey?
Janus couldn't be Einstein, since he was a pacifist. Our Master Smuggler/Master Carbineer on the other hand...
HI ZIL, welcome to TOG
Confirming my age
Well, I didn't see a formal way to confirm my age. So...
Father's logo, the bent tube, is from Michael Oldfield's Tubular Bells. This composition is a masterpiece of modern orchestral music later used to good effect in The Exorcist movie.
That movie scared the c**p outta me as a kid.
I remember, as a child, listening to the Apollo moon landing on a squire vinyl record that came inside my National geographic.
When leisure suits were in, you kept the top three buttons unbuttoned just like in Saturday Night Fever. If you really wanted to shine, you had a gold necklace with a gold plated razorblade. Only later did I realize what that is for (youngens, it aint for shaven!)
On TV, School House Rock, well, rocked when I was kid. Now I'm embarrassed to say I watched it.
I'm not sure if I can find any Aussie type references... childhood is about neighborhoods, and mine was in the big valley in California. Which reminds me, the Big Valley TV show (with a young Lee Majors) was supposed to be filmed in Stockton, CA - but hey seemed to miss the major rivers there.
I graduated from prison... I mean High School... in 1983. Loved Buckaroo Banzai, hated that silly taking car Kit. Watched my punk become new wave, then die of an overdose (which I guess was kinda fitting, really). John Lydon (AKA Johnny Rotten) then went on to perform solo in PIL, but punk wasn't the same.
If nostalgia doesn't prove youâ€™re old, will senescence do?

Consider yourself a member mate, I'll just go add you to the members list now
The COD tips and tricks isn't up yet, but I thought I'd pass this along. It was passed on to me by an ancient Chinese Sage with glowing runes...
No, that was me watching Big Trouble in Little China while typing. Movie is on pause now.
Well, on the French villiage map (burnville?), there is a popular place to camp. Second story of a house with two stairs up to it, but only one entrence to the sniping room. I call it Sniper HQ - three windows and plenty of view with good cover. The floor is partway missing to grenades are mostly useless. It faces the road where the church is. Dang, I wish I had a picture...
Anyway, it is ALWAYS a popular spot for the snipers and hard to tack out unless you rush. Well, if you go down the road to the church, over the rubble and to wall that is the map edge you will see that the rubble pile is high up the wall. Walk up that pile, turn 180 and you will see strait into the second story of sniper HQ. You will have to stand, but even prone targets can be visable. If you are allies, the wall matches you uniform and you are almost invisible to those in Sniper HQ. I know, this happend to me, and then a guy showed me the trick. Beats having to do a rush, or get lucky and have a grenades land on the second floor instead of going through the holes.
Well, I thought I could pass along a tip while waiting at work for someone to finish up so I can go home. At lease I brought a movie.
