Re: Halo 3 - Cut Mission Dialog

In Response To: Re: Halo 3 - Cut Mission Dialog (Grizzlei)

: It would have been a monumental
: undertaking by the British to carve out millions of tons of rock and earth
: for something of absolutely zero strategic or tactical value.

This. Whenever Crows Nest was built, earth moving equipment must have been cheaper than dirt.

: I would conclude that the Marines aboard Crow's Nest just never bothered to
: really pay attention in the African history classes I'm sure the UEG and
: CAA promotes throughout its most loyal colonies.

Human nature never changes, right? The other day, I blew someone's mind by explaining that Napoleon Bonaparte was a contemporary of Thomas Jefferson. Most people, however hard you try to teach them about history, are aware of historical events and figures but extremely hazy on when and in which order those events took place. So, yeah, the Marines are likely conflating some of the colonial wars of the 20th century (Six centuries ago!) with a later war (Rainforest wars?) that Crows Nest was built for.

Another example: Someone pointed out a building when we were driving through my hometown and said that it was a fallout shelter built during the Reagan presidency. I turned the car around and pointed out that it had a "Works Progress Administration" plaque in front.

: Also, you could not pay someone enough to safely pilot an early helicopter
: into those hangars.

I know a couple of crop dusters who'd do it just for the Hell of it.

Wait, was the operative phrase in that sentence "Not pay someone enough" or "Safely"?
