“Starting a download before you went to bed so it would be done when you got up the next morning.”
June 22th, 1941 – Citizens of Moscow listen to a historic radio announcement, saying that German forces invaded at 4 AM that morning and that the war started. 30% of male population will perish in the next 4 years (including 90% of men born in 1923)
Full radio transcription:
”Attention, Attention! Moscow speaks! Citizens of USSR, today at 4 in the morning, without declaration of war, German armed forces attacked the borders of the Soviet Union. Thus begins the Great Patriotic War of Soviet people against the German Nazi aggressors. Our cause is righteous! The enemy shall be defeated! Victory will be ours!”
Assuming that all of their tanks were operational (unlikely) a German Heavy Tank Battalion in WWII had 45 tanks, with an additional 8–11 SPAAGs, 5 Recovery Vehicles, and 11 armored half tracks. These would be pretty much the entirety of what the Abrams would have to destroy without being disabled.
Harry Haft, a Polish Jewish boxer was trained in Auschwitz by Nazis to fight to the death for the amusement of military personnel
By 1942 Haft served in several German-Nazi slave labor camps where he was beaten and starved. Because of his strong physical stature, an SS overseer trained him to be a boxer, and had him compete at fights to the death in front of the military personnel.
The fights took place at the concentration camp Jaworzno, which was situated at a coal mine north of Auschwitz. Haft fought a total of 76 fights there.
Boys Act on Feelings Men Act on Vision
The most basic distinction between boys and grounded men is that boys act on feelings, men act on vision.
Boys are like a feather in the wind. They allow their emotional state to govern their actions and they decide whether or not to keep their commitments in the heat of the moment.
If they don’t feel like doing something then they don’t.
Boys will hit snooze on their alarm instead of waking up early and doing what needs to be done. They will show up late to meetings. They will procrastinate on their work. They will defer what they should do for what they want to do in the moment.
Men are different.

How long were you a cult member, and what was the organization like?
I was brainwashed for a little under a decade. It was a small but fervent, insular organization led by a very charismatic, psychologically imbalanced “prophet.” His message was simple, but convincing: That our only responsibility was to love each other and the rest would fall into place. Not a difficult mantra to embrace! Contact with the outside world was prohibited, but once I was fully indoctrinated I wasn’t even interested in the outside world. I wanted to stay pure and radiate love like my brothers and sisters.

The Ultimate Warrior earned in excess of $2 million per year as a WWF headlinerin 1990-1991 (he specifically received a one-night payoff in excess of $650,000 for his match with Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania VI, and a one-night payoff of $550,000 for his bout with Randy Savage at Wrestlemania VII).
