    I overheard a conversation between a couple of Historians at our University a few years back, all about the American war of independance that I will never forget.
    The general theme from the one guy was that the British forces had won almost all of the battles but that Cornwallis lost the big confrontation.
    He was being really pompus about the whole thing.

    Another Professor who hadn't contributed until then pointed out that it doesn't matter who wins the heats as long as you win the final.

    Enjoy your Independance day festivities - the British are definitely not coming back; taking one ass kicking per millenium is more than enough for us thank you very much!

    ...

    But yes, hope our USA members have a nice and safe day.

    Happy Independence Day to y'all.

    However, in the spirit of the times, there will be some restrictions this year:

    No barbecues - danger of wild fires
    No fireworks - danger of wild fires
    No parties - Covid
    No going to the pub - Covid
    No eating inside in restaurants - Covid
    No alcohol - hangovers

    Ok, I made the last one up.
    Have a safe and happy Independence Day

    Damn, another Independence Day not spent fighting aliens with Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum.
    My HEVC/H.265/x265 videos can be played with either VLC or MPC-HC



    Does anybody know how the story really goes, how the story really goes, or do we all just hum along..?

    it's curious why you guys celebrate on the 4th - isn't it supposed to be the 2nd when independence was declared?

    nevertheless .... hope it was a good one
