Knowing the actual history of how we incorporated the Nazi intelligence apparatus into our own isn't being a "know it all". It's just being informed. My pointing out the error in your post isn't to be the smartest guy in the room, it's to inform you (and anyone else who cares to know) the truth about what actually happened with Paperclip and point out how the country was fed a lie by Truman's administration. A lie that persisted for decades to the point where many are unaware of what actually happened.

 

My tone is often more confrontational than intended. I'm never trying to preach, always trying to have a conversation.

 

My job is to go down all sorts of rabbit holes and find narrative gold to reuse for fictional purposes. In another life I work in non-fiction and have a well credentialed background in history with a special focus on the American IC post WW2 and slavery in the Americas from the 16th century through the 19th. 

 

 

 

:lol: I just rewatched that again the other day.

I just saw it again last night.  I'd forgotten how awesome Sam Elliot was in it.

He's brilliant in it, I had forgotten as well. Pretty much all the best lines went to him. We're trying to put him in something I'm working on so I was compiling a bunch of clips of his best stuff to make my case - that movie was a gold mine. 

 

Going from watching that to his Netflix show "The Ranch" with the cast of That 70s Show is a trip.

Sad to say, he's not available.  He's going to be co-starring in my new YouTube vehicle where he, Jeff Bridges, and Kurt Russell sit around, drink whiskey, and grow facial hair to shame normal men.

The Ranch was great just, puff before pressing play.

Oh, I liked it way more than I expected to. It was just a funny juxtaposition to go from one to the other back-to-back.

Hell yes I would. 


And I'd feel a great sense of shame each time.

Yes.  Mostly, after they surrendered.

And went on to found Trader Joe's and Aldi's. :ph34r:
