  5. Today’s Happiness (12 SEPT 2014)

  6. Today’s Happiness 7 September 2014

    #include <stdio.h>
    int main(void)
    {
      int tumblr_status = 1;
      int happiness

      if(tumblr_status == 1)
      {
        TodaysHappiness = start.c;
        happiness = happiness + 50;
      else
       /* Do nothing */
      }
    }

    Okay, so obviously I’m doing this again!

    • The Activity Fair booth is coming along.  2 walls, a curtain, and some paint are a heck of a lot better than a white table and a piece of paper banner with block font.
    • Earl Grey tea is a lifesaver.  Good grief!
    • I’ve made quite a bit of grading progress… (though not quite enough yet)
    • Dr. Jaffe’s seriously a legit kind of guy :)
    • Pandora, you beautiful thing, thank you for Group Therapy.  Literally? lol
    • Relaxing LEDs are relaxing.  And cool.  Definitely cool.
    • Facetiming you has been a huge help!  Thanks babe for being such an encouragement!

  10. kampfgruppe:

The Jagdpanther was a logical development of the Panther tank chassis, providing a very suitable (albeit somewhat expensive) platform for the extremely potent 88mm PaK43 anti-tank gun to be housed in a decently armoured fully-enclosed superstructure. This was unquestionably the most formidable German tank destroyer produced in worthwhile numbers, being capable of despatching any Allied tank at any practical range - East or West - and it was exceptionally difficult to knock out frontally. There was, however a commensurate cost in weight and maintenance. The Jagdpanther commenced active service in June 1944 and served until the end of the war.
