...shot himself 40 times in the back, pausing only once to reload.

...is dead of a self-inflicted airstrike.

You're a racist shit. by ambrosen (4.00 / 2) #7 Sat Nov 18, 2017 at 11:31:59 AM EST
That's my conclusion.

(I'm not arguing with the statement that a lot of things were better in Rhodesia. It's just that there was poop in the milkshake.

Nope, you're still a shite. by ambrosen (4.00 / 1) #11 Sun Nov 19, 2017 at 09:31:21 PM EST
Marxism's (broadly) bollocks, but Mugabeism is just straightforward Thatcherism. It's just that the primary industry involved is a) the only one in the country, and b) on the surface, not underground.

some things never change. by the mariner (2.00 / 0) #16 Thu Nov 23, 2017 at 07:45:23 AM EST
last i read about this part of the world, the forces of the rightful king, ignosi, were fighting king twala and his witch-servant gagool for control of the kingdom. quartermain and his fellows managed carry the day, however.

fast forward 100 years to my last film encounter with the land of southerly africa. a young mercenary christopher walken finds himself embroiled in yet another african political intrigue. after being imprisoned and abused by a corrupt government, he joins up with rebels to set right the wrongs wrought by warlordism upon the people.

now apparently some other shit happened in southern africa. if only there were some relatable figure in this story to provide some context and meaning for me.
