Pour one out for a true patriot. A man’s man. The word hero applies in this case. Story here.

If you don’t follow Dave Burge on Twitter, you are missing a treat. (@iowahawkblog)  His #DavesCarIDService threads are a treat.  He is also a polymath who ends up telling you tons’ of stuff you didn’t know.  He also has a Substack where he goes on about old cars.  This is a fantastic thread about “1942” model cars and the uses the car plants were put to.  Read and enjoy.

This particular raid is of great interest to me.  I’d like to visit Norway to see the place and walk the ground..

There is no way we could do this today.  What have we lost and how do we get it back?

Movie review: The Big Short (2015)

I have been meaning to watch this movie ever since it came out. It did not disappoint. I was so good I watched it twice over the weekend. It is an amazing movie, Well acted and well directed, Making a movie a bout massive financial fraud, with a ton of numbers is really hard, and they did it well. My real impression from the movie is to increase my doubt about everything we are being told today. I am not a Steve Carell fan, but his performance in this movie is nothing short of amazing. Big props to the writers who made this numbers story understandable. My biggest take away from the movie is a massive doubt about everything we think we currently know about what is going on in 2021. Watch this movie.

This commando operation in Norway is one of my areas of particular interest.  This is a good YouTube on it.

Thanks to Twitter, I learned a piece of history today.  I had never heard of this unit or their fight against the Fugo balloons. Amazing.
