    Welcome to the monkey house, V.V. As an outsider looking in to a mostly American cultural treescape it may be somewhat perplexing.....but one thing is universal....political dunderheads are much the same the world over....whether it be an Australian Prime Minister, an American POTUS, or a Trần Đại Quang. I hope you are covering your browsing tracks....this is a particularly subversive website, and there are those, closer to home, who would be taking much interest in your interests. Remember OPSEC! ;)

    WILKOMMEN!
    Greetings! In recognition of this celebratory welcome, I would like to share with you my favorite poem. Well, it's really more of a song than it is a poem. Alright, it's just a song, then. Anyway, here goes!

    ---MODERN MAJOR GENERAL---
    I am the very model of a modern Major-General
    I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral
    I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical
    From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical

    I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical
    I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical
    About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news
    With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse

    With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse
    With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse
    With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotepotenuse


    I'm very good at integral and differential calculus
    I know the scientific names of beings animalculous
    In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
    I am the very model of a modern Major-General

    In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
    He is the very model of a modern Major-General


    I know our mythic history, King Arthur's and Sir Caradoc's
    I answer hard acrostics, I've a pretty taste for paradox
    I quote in elegiacs all the crimes of Heliogabalus
    In conics I can floor peculiarities parabolous

    I can tell undoubted Raphaels from Gerard Dows and Zoffanies
    I know the croaking chorus from the Frogs of Aristophanes
    Then I can hum a fugue of which I've heard the music's din afore
    And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore

    And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore
    And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore
    And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinapinafore


    Then I can write a washing bill in Babylonic cuneiform
    And tell you ev'ry detail of Caractacus's uniform
    In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
    I am the very model of a modern Major-General

    In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
    He is the very model of a modern Major-General


    In fact, when I know what is meant by "mamelon" and "ravelin"
    When I can tell at sight a Mauser rifle from a javelin
    When such affairs as sorties and surprises I'm more wary at
    And when I know precisely what is meant by "commissariat"

    When I have learnt what progress has been made in modern gunnery
    When I know more of tactics than a novice in a nunnery
    In short, when I've a smattering of elemental strategy
    You'll say a better Major-General had never sat a gee

    You'll say a better Major-General had never sat a gee
    You'll say a better Major-General had never sat a gee
    You'll say a better Major-General had never sat a sat a gee


    For my military knowledge, though I'm plucky and adventury
    Has only been brought down to the beginning of the century
    But still, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
    I am the very model of a modern Major-General

    But still, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
    He is the very model of a modern Major-General
