As the years have gone by I have seen endless anguished and eagerly debated posts here about arty, TDs, MM. noobs, unicums, gold ammo, HE, rigged games, OP premiums, UP premiums, premiums neither OP nor UP, etc, etc.  The amount of whinging about what is a pretty decent game on the whole is extraordinary.  Let us all pray for Kharma

 

As we get older we do not get any younger.
Seasons return, and today I am fifty-five,
And this time last year I was fifty-four,
And this time next year I shall be sixty-two.
And I cannot say I should like (to speak for myself)
To see my time over again— if you can call it time:
Fidgeting uneasily under a draughty stair,
Or counting sleepless nights in the crowded Tube.

There are certain precautions— though none of them very reliable—
Against the blast from bombs and the flying splinter,
But not against the blast from heaven, vento dei venti,
The wind within a wind unable to speak for wind;
And the frigid burnings of purgatory will not be touched
By any emollient.
                                     I think you will find this put,
Better than I could ever hope to express it,
In the words of Kharma: "It is, we believe,
Idle to hope that the simple stirrup-pump
Will extinguish hell."
                                            Oh, listeners,
And you especially who have turned off the wireless,
And sit in Stoke or Basingstoke listening appreciatively to the silence,
(Which is also the silence of hell) pray not for your selves but your souls.
And pray for me also under the draughty stair.
As we get older we do not get any younger.

And pray for Kharma under the holy mountain.

So, what you're saying is that the stirrup-pump perk they were planning to add to the game won't do any good against arty, TDs, MM. noobs, unicums, gold ammo, HE, rigged games, OP premiums, UP premiums, premiums neither OP nor UP, etc, etc?

You might very well think that, but I could not possibly comment

I can't find the right decoder online to your messages, UserZer00. I've tried hexadecimal, base32, base64, ascii, binary, morse, etc. etc I just cannot seem to decipher.

Just speak like him on anything on the subject to make contact... Like.

It's a basic double cipher, passed through a counter logic creator, translated to German via Google translator and then back to English.

 

Nothing complicated.

 

Alternatively you just have to accept the fact that some things just can't be helped and move forward.  Since you play WOT, and are exposed to these type of situations regularly, this shouldn't be difficult.

All I did was reveal my lack of information about this "Stirrup Pump Perk". You don't need to answer my questions and tell me what it means, but you also don't need to philosophize like a dud, honestly. Either talk normally or don't talk to me. Nothing personal, though.

She looks like quite a dapper lady. I'm just wondering what she hopes to achieve with that small bucket against the incendiary devices dropped during those air raids...
