Neat video Cyber.
Even in WW2 I would not have wanted to attack a tank with just a 20mm round though.

I was a small child in the 70's so I remember a lot of tv shows but I didn't recognize any that were in that video! They must have all been very short lived.

For me not to remember them they almost had to be on air less than a season.

One you may have missed in the video, I did, was "The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo". It was a spinoff from BJ and the Bear. If you remember it at all it will probably be because of Nell Carter's character.

Not quite,as of 2016 anyway, but you give them a good run for their money. In 2016 the city of Miami had a population of 453,579 (2016).

Ok thanks for pointing that out wheels! I was close but no cigar.


Still, Wyoming has a hell of a tiny population density!

Oh, no doubt.

Wyoming

The second least densely populated state is Wyoming with six people per square mile. This state is a large state with a small population, and the most important economic activities include cattle ranching, coal mining, and tourism. A large portion of the land is either covered in mountains or designated as nationally protected (National parks and monuments for example) and therefore cannot be inhabited by humans.

It just floors me to know that my COUNTY has more people than several states.

Too true, You are conditioned to think that states should have these large populations but that is not the case all too often.

Riverside County has a similar population level to Miami-Dade but it is over three times the size in land mass.

For those that don't venture into the ROF forums WWGeezer has a pretty neat WW1 blog. If you liked the Martin stories in ROF by Dart I think you will enjoy the ongoing story of Gerhardt Rupp by WWGeezer too.
Rupp's Skizzenbuch: http://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4400068#Post4400068

Here is the first Journal entry, less images, of Gerhardt's story.
Quote
Journal Transcript

Page 1
5th January 1918­

Mein Name ist Gerhardt Rupp und das is mein Skizzenbuch.

A Skizzenbuch? Well not exactly, but that is what my mother intended when she gave it to me. I joined the military to seek adventure and serve in the new colonies being established in Africa. She knew I wanted to be an artist and this gift was a promise to return home to her someday and pursue that goal.

But then the Herero Wars came and for eight years in the desert, I saw how cruel my country could be. We gathered the local cattle herders and put them into camps. As a camp guard, I watched over their slow starvation and soon forgot what the sketchbook was for. It sat at the bottom of my kit bag untouched.

Until now that is.

By the time I returned to Germany my mother was gone and rumors of a “great” war were everywhere. After the assassinations in Sarajevo, I knew I would not be heading home anytime soon. Now I am an “old campaigner”, too young to be sent home, too old to be sent to the trenches. So here I sit, behind a desk in this old rail yard, just outside the town of Beauvin, the Unteroffizier for Jasta 77.

I record the names in the duty book of young pilots when they arrive, their eyes full of adventure and patriotism. A few weeks later, I pull their broken bodies from the wreckage and draft letters home to their families for the Hauptmann to sign. It bothered me at first, all those names, but after a while, it is just a job. I have become numb to the death around me and my country’s zeal to rule the world.

I focus on my survival.

Page 2

My mother taught me to read and write in English in hopes that we might find happiness across the Atlantic someday. I use it now to hide my notes from the prying eyes of the simple farm boys they send here to die.

You see, it has become clear to me that there will be no happy ending to this war. So I do what I need to do. I spy for the Hauptmann, smuggle in brandy for the officers, sell pictures of the local girls who are willing to pose.

This skizzenbuch is my record of what goes on at Jasta 77. I keep it for my advantage in hopes that I can find a way to survive this godforsaken war. And the sketches? I use them to distract me from the pounding artillery when I can’t sleep at night.

You see, I am no artist. I broke that promise to my mother long ago.

All of the journal entries are farirly brief like this one but they will draw you in making you want to know more of his story.

Some interesting trivia about the Third Reich


1. There were about 25,000 black people living amongst the German population. Ironically they were never deported to the concentration camps.

2. The soft drink “Fanta” was invented in Germany by employees of the Coca Cola branch there.

3. Hugo Boss was the main designer and manufacturer of Germany’s military uniforms.

4. Hitler had a nephew who served in the US Navy during WW 2.
