  •  Thanks for that (14+ / 0-)

    My dad taught me to drive.

    It's no wonder I think everyone else on the road is an idiot. ;-)

    Seriously, he was an amazing man, and this video just added more perspective to that.

    And to the "sad fetish for killing people" idiot downthread, piss off. Dad didn't enjoy killing anyone. He defended his country with honor, and went on to help house the homeless when he returned. Seriously, piss off.

    Sorry for going schizo on you, OS, but this thread is actually fairly emotional to me, and it pisses me off that someone actually can't differentiate between fighting WWII and ending the Holocaust, and having a "fetish for killing people".

    Alright, I'm getting pissed, and not at you, OS. I think I'll quit posting for the night. Thanks again, for helping me understand what my dad had to do to defend his beautiful wife, his unborn son and daughter, and our way of life. I'd like to think I could do the same, fly those low runs over hostile territory at incredible (at the time) speeds, and stay on target. I'm his son. But I can't believe it was easy.
