And there would've been no way for us to win the war. You know, it was the Soviet Union, 200 million people, we had, like, 3 million people back then. The winter just happened to be one of the coldest ever and the soldiers were motivated. Heck, Simo Häyhä alone shot over 500 Russians, still the best sniper in history. A decent body count in some 100 days.

You can't really win in that kind of scenario, you can only lose with style.
The mind transcends the body.
It's also a little cold because of that.
Please get it a blanket.

I wish I could read your mind,
I can barely read mine.

The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"

thats not really true..

any war worth fighting must be worth dying for...

not that a lot of wars are worth fighting... but sometimes its the fight that matters more than the win.

In this case, a war of mutual annihilation usually only means something to the historians.

And the neighbors.

Sort of applied to us. We had to fight to prevent the USSR from conquering us, but we had no way of winning. We gave them some one fourth of our land (the poor regions, incidentally) and one large city, but we survived.

Is the guy you just named with a high kill count the one they nicknamed ''the white death'' didn't he have a body count over a thousand?

That'd I think, be losing with style. No doubt the USSR settled for less at least partly because of the prohibitive cost in lives.

I've never seen anyone else ranked above him in sniper kills, but he only has a bit over 500 kills.

I'm surprised something to this effect hasn't been done already, frankly.

Heh, well, I already did Graf Eisen for a Hammertime once. Just didn't have any good shots of the Saturn Drill Rocket form.

Yeah, but that Hammertime didn't have drills! ;) Newsflash: Drills make everything awesome... er.
Also, nice one on the Hide poster. I actually did a double-take when I read the caption. :D

It's the real compelling reason to have really tiny Rogues, you don't need Hide in Plain Sight when a falling leaf is enough for total cover.

More motivators!
The last two seem awfully familiar :P
