That IS pretty sad. I just read a new biography of Jackson and he clearly was NOT fighting to preserve slavery nor was he a traitor. He also wasn't killed by the bullet that hit him. As he was being carried off the field on a stretcher, he was dropped and apparently injured his ribs and possibly his lungs too. This only became apparent later when he was convalescing and developed pneumonia and possibly blood clots in his lungs. If that was the case, he could not have survived the injury despite what happened to his left arm.

Any Day is a Good Day That Doesn't Involve Too Much Work or Too Little Gaming

Random acts of genius and other inspirations of applied violence.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

It's funny, that's the ONLY line from Doctor Detroit I can remember. But I can't find it in YouTube anywhere.

That and Dan Akroyd power walking in the beginning. I saw it plenty of times myself but don't remember any of the movie...I doubt it's on Netflix nor Prime though.

"Routed" Is a very strong word. I thought Napoleon was actually winning this fight but decided to withdraw back over the Danube to regroup for another try in a month.
