    I especially like how its about Russian maps and the top map picture appears to depict bombing targets in the US.

    Great find though.

    Heh heh, apparently they're gonna bomb our cornfields in Iowa and Nebraska, then bomb the snowboarders in Colorado, not sure what's in that part of Texas, and then maybe have a walk over and hang out with the Hatfields and McCoys.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Maybe they were going to bomob them because of all the lousy college football that's been played there in the past few years.
