    st barbara got a reaction from Scott Ruggels in What "Pulp" have you read lately ?   
    Not currently reading any pulp fiction, but a useful book for any pulp gm that I have started is "Last Talons Of The Eagle" by Gary Hyland and Anton Gill. It is about the various Nazi experimental (and some not so experimental) aircraft that were developed during (and sometimes before) World War ll  Certainly the helicopters developed by Flettner  (some of which were used during the war) could be of use in a pulp campaign. I have just reached the section on the Horten Brothers and their "flying wings'. Lots more to come I am sure !

    Along with Julius Schwartz he made the "Silver Age" of comics what it was. He was an important voice in the development of the superhero comic and has left an important legacy for those that come  after him..

    People have often complained that Trump has never stopped "campaigning" since he won the last election. I suspect he's not campaigning at all. One of the symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder (of which Trump displays several) is a need for constant adulation. On the campaign trail Trump experienced crowds worshiping him, and I believe he's addicted to that.

    I have the box set of "Wild Wild West' (the T V series) and it is fun. As far as I am concerned the movie version was an absolute travesty, done by people with no taste or appreciation of the source material that they were bastardising !

    "Saint Barbara " was an erotic model and then worked for UNICEF before gaining super powers.

    st barbara got a reaction from assault in If the Japanese won World War 2 how would the United States be changed?   
    Whether Japan would have invaded Australia is debatable (and has been debated). I also can't see them invading the coast of the U S A, they simply didn't have the manpower to take the country. What IS more possible is that they would have turned West with India as the glittering prize. Possibly the U S A could have been forced to negotiate with the Axis powers had Germany got the bomb first and Japan could have kept its Asian possessions while Germany controlled Europe and Africa, leading to a cold war between a Germanic Europe and a Japanese dominated Asia, with the Americas as a neutral (and Neutered) "third power" and trading partner for the two great powers.

    I got some more books via the internet recently , including a" WPA Guide To New Orleans". This gives me four of these guides, New York, Washington,San Francisco and New Orleans. Interesting thing is that a previous owner of the New Orleans book has included a hand written note about "Storyville".,

    I think that Trump's affairs have all been with Americans, but his wife is foreign born.

    Is hunting the wild Markdoc anything like hunting Snarks ? Does one need to threaten his life with a railway share or can he be charmed with smiles and soap ? The world wonders !
