I have a question. To preface, this is an honest question and I'm not asking sarcastically or condescendingly.
On the topic of dropping the A Bomb, I've heard some people bring up the scenario of dropping a "test" right off Japan's coast, and basically telling the Japanese "hey, at 3:00pm, look ...

I signed up for GEOG 1103.
I show up for class on the first day and unwittingly walked into a GEOG 1113 class that just happened to be meeting at the same t...

It depends on how they lose. At least it does for me.
There's a saying: "Some games you lose. Some games the other team wins."

LSU/Bama 2014: LSU lost
I think that's what frustrates most of the "neg...

I don't really have a problem with any of that.
The only thing is that I think they were as self-interested as any other human being. They weren't angels.
