Again apologies, no time to write at the minute. I’m knee deep in writing scripts for another blogger and his YouTube channel. (Will give you a match report on that at some point. Lets just say it’s Really Manly and Really Stylish). I was up at that crack of fuck and I’ve written close on 3k words. Ain’t complaining but I sort of run out of juice at this time of night.

They’re like the Mayweathers of world wars. I tried the same manoeuvre and remarkably, even with my maladroit pigeon-toed feet I was able to squeeze in and out.

Look up! These traps were lethal. Ugly, pernicious. But they call it war for a reason. They even called it the American War, we know it as the Vietnam War but the Vietnamese didn’t start anything. They certainly didn’t use any chemicals like the Yanks did. Here don’t believe me?

The Vietnamese used shells from unexploded US bombs to make grenades and booby traps.
