"next to of course god america i love you land of the pilgrims' and so forth oh say can you see by the dawn's early my country tis of centuries come and go and are no more what of it we should worry in every language even deafanddumb thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry by jingo by gee by gosh by gum why talk of beauty what could be more beaut- iful than these heroic happy dead who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter they did not stop to think they died instead then shall the voice of liberty be mute?"
This is the best thread I have read ever. Thank you Shem The Penmen,you rock. The big question I have is how does this affect him on the dating scene. Hey girls I'm Prime, Optimus Prime, can I buy you a drink? Who said Rappers, Band Members, Video Directors can snag all the cool ass names? I think I might change my name to Starscream.
I got dibs on Gigantor. Or Johnny Sokko's Giant Flying Robot.
Just can't decide.
"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt
I'm glad that my 900th post goes to a thread about such a wacky guy.
Well Mr. Burns had done it. The power plant had won it. With Rogers Clemens clucking all the while. Mike Scioscia's tragic illness made us smile. While Wade Boggs lay unconscious on the barroom tile. We're talkin'... Softball. From Maine to San Diego. Talkin'... Softball. Mattingly and Canseco. Ken Griffey's grotesquely swollen jaw. Steve Sax and his run-in with the law. We're talkin' Homer... Ozzie and the Straw.
Plus, I don't think Optimus believes in Destrucity, or whatever, unlike Warrior (I mean, whether or not he's against destrucity or for it or whatever, the-man-formerly-known-as-Jim-Hellwig is just... out there!).
It weirds me out that this soldier, now known as Prime, actually got a letter from the Pentagon from a general who's DOWN WITH THE AUTOBOTS!!! That rules like ten different ways! Give that general an energon cube.
I remember, quite a number of years ago, that there was a guy who loved to fish so much he legally changed his name to 'Trout Fishing In America.' I kid not!
Oh, and BTW, does Bruticus K. McMullen sound pretty cool?
David Crockett sez it best, folks: "Look at 'im, Tony! Look at 'im!"
Guys....... Saddam wouldn't be Megatron, Unicorn, or Galvatron. He's pretty low on the food chain. I'd say he's more at Frenzy or Brawl's level.
RIP Curt Hennig: Yeah, they call me a redneck, but you know---that's a beautiful thing!
You don't get it boy, this isn't a mudhole... it's an operating table. And I'm the surgeon. Something tells me to stop with the leg. I don't listen to it. But where in the world is there in the world A man so extroardinaire?
What can I say that everyone else hasn't already said -- that's just damn cool. Might have to change my sig from a Megatron quote to the Optimus motto after all. "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings"....indeed...
And as for who Saddam is? Let's see:
Megatron: "Everything is fodder." or Galvatron: "My power is everything, defeat is absurd!"
hmmm...gotta go with Saddam being Galvatron on this one. That Galvy quote sounds like something he'd say.
Power flows to the one who knows how -- desire alone is not enough.

Government War 2003-03-18 11:07:49 Aquillion 28 Comments Cairo - Saddam Hussein's second son, Qusai Hussein, has the reputation of being a low-key and ambiguous figure moving in his father's shadow.
But his nickname among Iraqis - Mr Snake - indicates it's mainly a difference of style that separates him from his more widely known, ruthless brother Odai Hussein, who gives himself the name of Abu Sarhan, an Arabic euphemism for a wolf.
Now, all we need a few soliders with the code-names Duke, Snake-Eyes and Quick and Saddam reffering to himself as Megatron, then we could have one of the worst crossovers in history.
i remember go-bots from the 80s...it was a transformers rup-off and the dude in charge was a transforming f-16 i think. it was some kind of war plane, but it didn't transform that much, not like the robotech/macross VFs...
I think there are crocs in the sewers. Great big honking ones...
It's ultimately a pyramid scheme, too, isn't it? You buy into the scheme, and then when another buyer comes along you get your money back plus a profit, and the founder of the scheme always takes a cut.
