Zipfizz Pina Colada B12 Energy Drink Dietry Supplement Limited Edition Net Wt 11.64 Oz
Zipfizz Pina Colada B12 Energy Drink Dietry Supplement Limited Edition Net Wt 11.64 Oz
I love Zipfizz because it gives me energy without making me jittery, it's keto, and it tastes good. I love pina colada flavor, so I paid more than I usually would for this flavor. I won't do that again.

This flavor is good, but it's mostly pineapple. I had to add coconut milk to get the real flavor. (Great for keto, btw, as long as you get some without added sugar. Adds fat and coconut flavor without adding carbs. I froze the rest in an ice cube tray for later.) I hope the makers of Zipfizz will take note. Add more coconut and drop the price, and you will have a very popular flavor.

Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors Season 3
Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors Season 3
I wasn't expecting season 3 to be any different in quality than the first 2 seasons, but I have been pleasantly surprised with how decent the show is this season. There's a continuous building story through each episode, and the goofy cutaways and bad jokes seem to have been minimized as well. Also, the Taskmaster feels like a real threat, and doesn't worry about all the theatrics that the Green Goblin seemed concerned with.
Angola 3 - Black Panthers And The Last Slave Plantation
Angola 3 - Black Panthers And The Last Slave Plantation
This documentary tells a complicated story of three prisoners and their plights in Louisiana prison.
Their stories are very complicated and much background detail is covered in this film. It looks like some (or all of it) was shot before Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The film definitely shows extensive evidence of some kind of prison or government frame up to solve a brutal crime that happened behind prison walls. I would recommend this film for people interested in the Black Panther Party, the American prison system failures, and compelling biographies.
Silver Surfer Epic Collection: When Calls Galactus
Silver Surfer Epic Collection: When Calls Galactus
This volume collects all the appearances of the Silver Surfer in various Marvel titles - mostly the Fantastic Four - prior to the solo title launch in 1968 which lasted just 18 issues. There are three key points about this collection which might help people considering it -

* It is specifically limited to the comics and stores where the Silver Surfer appears - there are no associated storylines and even other parts of the original comics are not necessarily included. This makes it one of the slimmer TPBs.
* The main bonus materials are a few black and white artwork proofs with Kirby's notes, more of which later. There are no reviews or commentaries.
* It is a good quality reproduction with very bright and vivid colours - more of that later also.

So with the above in mind, this is really one for Surfer purists and completionists rather than general Marvelites, Fantastic Four fans or even Kirby/Lee aficionados. For a Surfer devotee like me this sits alongside the Essential TPB and of course my original copies and even the brief appearance in FOOM as the "classic" Surfer reference library.

The stories contain that heady blend of innocence, wisecracking wordplay, space opera, ambition, bombast and the early stirrings of pathos - though in a muted form by comparison to the messianic and at times Shakespearian solo title. Whilst the Surfer is often a co-star and sometimes more a bystander (Galactus steals the show as an inexorable force of destruction, yet amoral rather than evil), the dominant character throughout this volume is really Ben Grimm AKA The Thing, who is generally on the receiving end of most of the batterings and frustrations endured either at the hands of or in connection with the Surfer. Ben Grimm was really the primary vehicle for a grizzled, curmudgeonly and "man of the people" commentary, a lumbering lummox with the heart of a lion, while the Surfer in this period is a colder and distant incarnation of his later self, a naïve, ultra-rational being with no real backstory, and with a gradually forming albeit detached pure and moral sensibility - clearly a "man" apart.

None of this will be surprising or unfamiliar to Marvel readers of the 60's - the influence of thought-provoking science fiction, the sense of wonder and possibility as mankind reached out into space for the time, the gradual loosening of characterisation clichés, and a burning inventive energy that drove the creation of the Marvel universe. And the two defining elements, particularly epitomised in this collection: Stan Lee's grandiose dialogue and Kirby's stylised, fearless, page-filling artwork. Which brings me to just one key, personal point about this volume.

Whilst all of the above make it a must-have for me and something I would recommend to anyone with a similar interest, the bonus black and white artwork at the end of the book really made me stop and think. Seeing Kirby's inked work like this, even with pencil marks, what looks like correction fluid and extensive margin scribbles, really brings home the brilliance of his vision. Not just the composition, but his approach to shading different textures, the mix of delicate details and insistent, heavy outlines, and his unique, reductive approach to faces. As an artist I can't believe the Surfer wasn't one of his favourite creations as it allows him to let loose with shining metallic textures, minimalist, pure-figure anatomy and, obviously, cosmic explosions, star clusters and energy bursts of all kinds. The black and white brings this out so well that I immediately wanted to scan the whole book and print it monochrome, because so much of that is lost in the bright, eye-watering colour reproduction.

Don't get me wrong, there's nothing particularly bad about the reproduction. It's very much the highly-saturated, ultra-vivid AMOLED-style of today that glares out at you from the pages, on good thick paper stock. Maybe that's even what the production proofs looked like in the print rooms at the time, although of course it ended up as muted tones on thin off-white paper like everything else on the newsstands. But it doesn't do the art justice in the way in either black or white, or a much a softer approach would have done. If you want to test this, get the Surfer Essential TPB (reprinting SS # 1-18) - cheaper, thinner matt paper, but look at how in black and white the Buscema artwork and the final Kirby issue become poetic fables, the lines of the Surfer's form more delicate and the sheen more subtle, and clearly reflecting how the artists originally envisioned and constructed the pages using white space, cinematic perspectives, starscapes and dynamic ensemble sequences. I accept that perhaps I am out of step with the majority in this, but it's my review, so hey ho :).

To sum up – part of the classic era and a definitive collection for Surfer specialists wanting all the background leading up to the brief but glorious solo launch in 1968. A period piece of course, deeply dated and innocently of its time, but with a recognisable and appealing originality of vision and vaulting ambition. Enjoy the black and whites at the end and see if you agree with my mutterings …
Lord Of The Rings Boxed Set
Lord Of The Rings Boxed Set
I'm a fan of Tolkien and his works and lately have been interested in purchasing copies of really nice anniversary editions. I turns out the one's that I have been looking for have been getting rather old (and have been out of print for a while), the 60th Anniversary hardcover boxed set included. I've looked around on other sites and usually finding these new would run upwards of two to three hundred dollars, so this one coming in at around one hundred (when including shipping) was a good price.

Mine shipped from Poland where apparently proper packaging hasn't been invented yet! The set arrived in a box (a bit too large for it) beat up from the trip, with only a bit of crumpled up paper inside to keep it from sliding around. Upon arrival, the paper was at this point flattened and the set would slide easily in the box. Despite this, the set actually arrived in pretty decent condition. The outer casing had a few minor dents on the edges but the corners were in good shape so I don't think these were caused by the shipping conditions from Poland to the US.

There is a curve/lip to the set cover that exposes a bit of the dust covers on the first book and the readers companion; on the first book it has left a light blank impression on the dust cover but no creasing. On the reader's companion this lip has creased the dust cover, but no black marking is left on it. This is the extend of the flaws on the as received product that is discernable to me. The set was received in the original plastic wrapping with the publisher's sticker on it, though as you might imagine it was a bit worn and coming off in places, which I attribute to the age.

The books themselves were in excellent condition; pages crisp with the new-book smell, sharp and well-defined corners on the hardcover binding... It's just a beautiful work of art. The set cover has served it's purpose by protecting everything inside of it. Since I purchased this set specifically for reading, the flaws that I received it with are perfectly acceptable to me. I have other sets and editions that sit and look pretty on the shelf which are in better condition, hence the 4-star review, but overall, this is a great work of art that I look forward to enjoying for years to come. If you are looking for the hardcover 60th edition new in very good condition (but not mint-condition), especially for reading use, I would recommend this. Your mileage MAY vary on the shipping aspect, however--I just want to mention this caveat so you don't forget.

I wasn’t sure I had read this one before, and after reading it, I’m still not sure. It’s classic, formulaic Nora Roberts. It’s not new and interestingly the material is dated in a way that makes it seem older than 2005. It’s a quick, easy read. Nothing exciting. Slightly annoyed that I paid $5.99 for it. At less than 100 pages and a reprint, it’s a $2.99 value at best.

The Case of the Fenced-In Woman (A Perry Mason Novel)
The Case of the Fenced-In Woman (A Perry Mason Novel)
Surprise! At least for one who belatedly read his first Perry Mason. TV’s portly Raymond Burr was excellent but looked like he was born in a three-piece suit. The real Mason is a strapping fellow who, if push comes to shove, might send you crashing through the sheetrock. Another surprise in this book is the comic nature of the basic situation - a furious divorcee erects a barbed wire barrier through the middle of a contested house, grounds and swimming pool. Then a dead body pops up. Quite believable in Los Angeles, city of BIG DIVORCES. Also there’s Mason’s relationship with Tragg. TV’s Ray Collins showed comic bits and pieces. But here the two are constantly putting the needle to each other, tit for tat. Neither trusts the other, nor should they. Tragg especially fears what he calls Mason’s “razzle-dazzle,” which no doubt Perry learned in Law School. You can see why Erle Stanley Gardner was one of Evelyn Waugh’s favorite novelists. Why, also, I will return to more Mason cases in the future.

Finally Goku has fulfilled his destiny. Though his warriors pride still overrides his intelligence. A great action packed collection. I have to admit the continues "turning tables" did get a bit Nnoying but it did make for exciting reading. Anyone who sees the cover would know what was to happen in this book. So I regret saying Goku achieves a incredible new power level of legendary proportions. A great battle by everyone against overwhelming odds. Freeza unleashes his full power finally but someone is there to meet him every step of the way. I remember getting goosebumps the first time I saw this on the screen, and I got them reading this even though I knew what was going to happen. One of my favourites of the series so far.
Danny, the Champion of the World: Novel-Ties Study Guide
Danny, the Champion of the World: Novel-Ties Study Guide
Whimisical, creative, silly, I would use these words to describe the fantastic story of James and the Giant Peach. James is a boy whose parents are killed by an unfortunate rhinoceros accident at the zoo. He is forced to live with his two aunts, Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge. They are mean to him and make him work alot. One day though he meets a magic fellow while he is working in the garden. The fellow gives him magic beans. James is supposed to eat them, but he drops them by the peach tree. In the evening James goes outside and is shocked by a huge peach on the tree. James finds a hole in the peach and he meets his new "friends". This book is interesting and very good. It is an excellent book for adults to read to kids, because both parties would get reading pleasure.
The Legend of Caleb York (A Caleb York Western Book 1)
The Legend of Caleb York (A Caleb York Western Book 1)
I've read a lot of Westerns; it is a phase I go through at least once a year. When that time comes it's all outlaws, gun play, horses, and cliches. I also am a big Mickey Spillane fan and have enjoyed a few Max Allan Collins books. So when the impulse came I was more than happy to jump on board.

Unfortunately, the whole was somehow far below the sum of the parts of these thoroughly talented writers. Mr. Collins explains in his forward that the novel was based on an outline left to him from Spillane via his widow to see through. There were no outline excerpts but Mr. Collins made it clear that it was originally intended to be for the silver screen during Hollywood's love affair with the genre. As such it has all the standard archetypes popular at the time, albeit in slightly different roles.

The evil villain is actually the Sheriff who has bullied himself into every business and even acquired a number of local ranches to become the Boss Hog of the town. Then there's the strong willed rancher's daughter who, along with her strong willed though physically blind father, are one of the few holdouts against the Sheriff's tyranny. When pushed too far the man offers $10K to hire legendary gunman Caleb York to rid them of the outlaw and his gang. When a mysterious dandy rides into town and instantly proves himself to be a kind but dangerous man, the big mystery becomes is or isn't he the titular York.

There are others caricatures as well: the prostitute/salon owner; the town drunk; the two dimensional occupants of the town from shop keeper to telegrapher; the many numbered but ultimately indistinguishable members of the gang, etc.

And really that one abbreviation "etc." best sums up the issues I have with the book. It is one long Western version of Seinfield's yadda, yadda, yadda. Mysterious man arrives...yadda, yadda, yadda...show down at the stage stop.

There is no real depth, no real suspense, even the prose is straight forward and rote. The only place where the genius of either Spillane or Collins shows through is in the dialogue. Here the snappy one liners and bemused insults have the hard-boiled impact one would expect from these authors. Otherwise it is a plain tale very plainly wrought and one that I sad to say ultimately does not inspire me to continue on with the series.

I spend a lot of time browsing Kindle reviews looking for that next good read. When I saw an Arthur Hailey book I clicked on it out of curiosity remembering his major hit, Hotel, from decades ago. I tried the sample with the expectation that it would be one of those 'writing has sure come a long ways' moments. Instead I found myself caught up in the story of a Canadian politician struggling to do the right thing hampered by a seemingly insignificant but sensationalized immigration case alternating points of view with the lawyer of the embattled immigrant. Hailey's formula is capturing regular people in trying situations in a specific field or industry and backing it up with painstaking research spending an average of three years on each book. In High Placse came out in 1962, the year when John Kennedy was president, Marilyn Monroe committed suicide, the Beatles released their first single, Love Me Do, and the Cuban Missile crisis raised the threat of nuclear annihilation. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then but I found out that a good story doesn't age. Generally most reviewers roasted Hailey's work, I suspect part of that was his lack of pretension which is reflected in his characters and the way they interact realistically and in a likable manner. There is a mild simplistic over lay in his world building but certainly no worse than all but the best of present day best sellers' list. Perfect book for unwinding after a challenging day, I will be back.

SEAL's DESIRE (Take No Prisoners Book 2)
SEAL's DESIRE (Take No Prisoners Book 2)
Remy LaDue and Mitchell Sanders made a mistake and sleep with each other after his best friend's and her boyfriend's funeral. After that, they keep in touch as they both grieve and go on with their jobs(Remy is a SEAL and Mitchell is an NCIS Agent). They make a date for Valentine's day if they are both stateside but when Remy gets back he finds Mitchell deep undercover and in need of help. Good thing she has backup in Remy and his SEAL Team.

I loved the characters in this book. Remy is so sweet and sexy one of my combos in a hero and he is head over heels in love with Mitchell. Mitchell is independent strong and can take care of herself in a fight, but she has such a caring side. Remy and Mitchell are both very devoted to their jobs(Remy is a SEAL and Mitchell in an NCIS Agent). I love a heroine who loves her job and her boyfriend understands and respects that. I hate it when the hero doesn't respect that the heroine has an important job that she loves or Vise Versa. Remy and Mitchell both had to deal with the guilt they felt about sleeping together after the funeral and thought the author wrote that very well. Remy and Mitchell have great chemistry and you can tell how much they respect and love each other. This book is very exciting and I read it in one sitting. My only complaint is I wish this book had been longer because I loved the characters and story so much. If you love action, romance, and suspense I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Clifford va a la escuela (Spanish Edition)
Clifford va a la escuela (Spanish Edition)
ce livre fait partie d une collection très sympathique que mon adore depuis ses 18 mois.
les histoires sont simples et traitent de sujets de la vie quotidienne.
le nombre de pages est suffisant pour des petits et permet de raconter une vraie histoire.
le format est très maniable et manipulable bien que non cartonné.
les illustrations sont un peu rétro et très adaptées á des petits enfants car contiennent aussi des détails sans être trop sophistiquées.
enfin le texte est 100% espagnol et permet á votre enfant de pratiquer cette langue facilement.
J utilise ces livres comme support á la pratique de l espagnol á la maison bien que je suis française de langue maternelle et cela me donne aussi la possibilité d'apprendre en même temps que mon enfant.

le thème de celui-ci est une matinée á l'école maternelle avec un bébé chien. Ce petit chien amuse bien la classe en faisant plein de bêtises....

The Baltimore Boys
The Baltimore Boys
I really enjoyed The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, so I was looking forward to the follow up. Unfortunately, this was nowhere near the same standard. There is so much wrong with this book.

Unlike the Harry Quebert Affair, there is no intrigue or mystery. There is lots of reference to 'the tragedy' but no hints as to what it could be. The book does jump about from present to past, but the actual central tragedy unfolds in a very linear fashion at the very end of the book.

The rest of the book is a massively drawn out story of the most unrealistic childhood ever. Nobody is normal, everybody is incredible or terrible. I assume the writer was going for an unreliable narrator, but only because that is the only explanation for how ridiculous the story is. Of the four children, we have an NFL standard footballer, a future best selling writer, a future international pop sensation, and a student 'more advanced than every teacher in the school'. We have 8 year olds bribing teachers to get free private school places. 10 year olds beating up 16 year olds, three teenagers beating up 6 men. A whole school dedicated to systematic abuse and humiliation scared into completely changing their ways by one child. You get the idea. Similarly, people don't just have faults, they go from hero to criminal.

Despite the book spreading over more than a decade, there isn't really any character development. All of the characters are very 2 dimensional. The actual tragedy could have been quite a tragic story handled well, but I simply didn't care enough about the characters. None of the characters are nice people, every choice they made was ridiculous and seemed to have little motivation. It didn't help that the dialogue was awful, and the sentences were short, clipped and had no particular flair or style.

I only finished the book because I enjoyed Harry Quebert so much, I was convinced it would get better and be worth it in the end. It wasn't.

Replaced my mothers 40 year old jewelry box (kept together with scotch tape) that my father had given to her, so it had to be perfect. Searched the internet and landed on this one. Was pleased with the quality, amount of storage and look. Was worried that it was too big, but once it was on her dresser, it fit perfectly. She loves the wood grain and all the storage, especially the necklace holders. She can fit way more jewelry into this than her other one.

Jelly Belly Harry Potter Bertie Bott's, 1.2-Ounce (Pack of 8)
These things are amazing, we used to buy them all the time as kids. Unfortunately, they only sold them at bookstores, and those started going out of business when cell phones and e-readers started getting popular, so I was afraid that we would never see them again.

I saw them again recently at Knotts Berry Farm and boy were they fun!
I was so excited to see them on Amazon, and for considerably cheaper than at Knotts.

I decided to buy these again and mix them with regular Jelly Belly's for my dad's 50th birthday party, they were a blast!
My grandpa was the first one to get a bad one. When I asked what flavor, he said "I don't know, tastes like dirt with poop in it" I'm pretty sure he got earthworm which is THE WORST! Even worse than Vomit.

The box is small, about 2"x1"x1/4" and holds approx. 20 jelly beans. You won't be getting one of each flavor, the assortment is random. I got one with about 5 vomits in it. Some have better variety than other's.

They look almost exactly the same as regular Jelly Belly's, only without the logo printed on, nobody notices the logo when grabbing a few though.

I was looking for a good, simple black hoodie to replace one that I lost and tested four different ones on Amazon:

Carhartt Women's Clarksburg Full Zip Hoodie - $49.99

CLOVERY Women's Casual Zip-up Hoodie Basic Long Sleeve Hoodie - $26.99

MAJECLO Women's Slim Fit Casual Full-Zip Hooded Lightweight Long Sleeve Sweatshirt - $22.95

Starter Women's Zip-Up Hoodie, Amazon Exclusive - $15.99

I didn't like Hanes' jersey hoodie because it was too thin and flimsy. All the hoodies are size small, black.

Out of the four hoodies, I like Carhartt the best. It's a nice, thick material that will keep me warm. The zipper is metal and sturdy. It also has metal grommets on the holes for the hoodie strings (though the ends are fastened with plastic tips). The kangaroo pockets are big and deep. Two things I don't really like are the price point (compared to the other hoodies), and the zipper pull is a bit big.

Clovery is my second choice because it's pretty good quality for the price. It's a bit thin for what I want but great for those who want something light but not "t-shirt thin" like the Hanes hoodie. It's really soft and fits pretty well. The hood is the best out of the four because it actually covers your head without tugging up on the shoulders. It actually extends a bit to shield your face too. What I don't like is the hoodie string, since the ends are just tied in a knot, not sewn or fastened by any coverings like the other hoodies. I also don't really like the zipper pull since it clacks against the zipper and makes a bit of noise when I move around. The kangaroo pockets are big, but so are the openings so I'm wary that things might fall out easily.

Majeclo is probably my least favorite out of the four because it's thinner than I like (though still a little thicker than Hanes) and it doesn't fit very well. It's really soft, which is nice, but that's also because of the thinness. The hoodie string has metal fasteners on the ends, which is nice compared to the other four. The kangaroo pockets have the same problem as the Clovery hoodie—big openings that your stuff may fall out of.

Starter comes in third place as the cheapest of the bunch. It's made of thick material so you can stay warm during evenings (which was my biggest priority). Hoodie strings are nearly sewn at the ends. It is definitely smaller than the other four though so you can't really wear anything thicker than a t-shirt underneath. It suits shorter torsos. I don't like the hood since it's also really small and tags on the shoulders the most compared to the other hoodies. Pockets are TINY, which ultimately is a no-no for me.

I am not one to complain about things very much. I'm not one to ask to speak to the manager. And if I am, it's definitely not about something as simple as socks. That being said, these are the worst socks I've ever worn and I they make me so angry.

I've worn Hanes socks that I buy at Target my whole life so I figured, hey, I need more socks, so let me just buy more Hanes socks, but this time from Amazon because I'm a lazy millennial. These things are terrible. They're paper thin. I've washed them 5-6 times now, and even still, my feet and toes and toenails are completely covered with lint that I have to scrape off my feet prior to getting in the shower, otherwise the lint will clog my drain. They're not absorbent at all; when I go for a run, my feet are sliding around inside the socks from the sweat.

Do not buy them. Hanes, you should be ashamed.

I would say the best work in this movie was done by the artist who created the trailer!
They took the very best bits and pieces that put all together within a minute make it look very suspenseful, mysterious and exciting. Unfortunately, that's all they've got.
Even Bruce Willis, one of my favorite actors, seemed unsure of what he was trying to portray most of the time.
Definitely not worth it.

First things first, this spray smells gorgeous. It smells strongly of lavender with an undertone of some other woody scent. I love it. I used this on my quest to find something to help me sleep after months of insomnia - my cousin recommended this and I bought it the same day. I sprayed it onto my pillow and along the line of where I usually sleep in the bed as the spray claims to be activated by movement as you sleep. I did actually fall asleep within 20 minutes of going to bed, which is unheard of for me - and the next night I also fell asleep and stayed asleep longer than usual. However last night I had a very disturbed night after almost 3 hours of lying awake at the beginning of the night. So yes, I believe the spray does certainly help...but not 100% of the time. However, I have only only had it for a few days so maybe it improves over time.

Both me and my brother have herniated discs and this helped within the first week or so of consistently using it. I’m 120lbs, got the xs. I have a very soft mattress topper so the roll doesn’t bother me but my brother says he uses it on a firm mattress and he’s just as happy with it. Helps us both sleep longer and get out of bed easier. It simply supports your lumbar while you sleep. I’ve discovered that you can either tie it around your waist or lie it flat for side or back sleepers. Pilates, water therapy and CBD oil have all helped me heal myself holistically. I wish you the same success!

Guys please don’t buy aluminium cookers. It discharges lead.
Cooking in cooker is not advisable. Only for occasional and for people who are in a hurry.
Always buy steel based cookers. Don’t ever go for aluminium vessels or cookers. For long term usage of aluminium vessels it will impact your health in a big way.
It even creates thyroid abnormalities for both men n women.
I’m not someone who writes reviews for likes I wanted to write because I’ve personally experienced it. Aluminium and plastic impacts a lot on your health. Stay away from these two !!!

Llegaron pringosos y algunos de ellos rotos. Probablemente por el calor del mes de agosto. He probado a meterlos en el frigorífico pero una vez que los sacas, y están un rato a temperatura ambiente, vuelven a estar como sudados.
He comprado muchas veces otras gominolas y nunca me había pasado esto.
De sabor están buenos pero en casa ya no los come nadie.
No puedo recomendarlos, o por lo menos, no en meses con calor.

"FOR ALERT FORCE...KLAXON, KLAXON, KLAXON": WWIII THROUGH THE EYES OF SAC WARRIORS
This book follows the lives of the crews of several different Air Force planes as they grapple with the challenges and terrors presented by World War III. It goes into a lot of detail about the technical aspects of the aircraft involved in combat; I personally found it a bit dry, but anyone enthusiastic about combat craft would love it, I'm sure.

This book is notably different from a lot of other nuclear war yarns I've read on here, in that the United States is the one to fire off a nuke first -- that senile old maniac Reagan deciding to show the Soviets that the USA meant business, and then decided to just twiddle his thumbs in Washington until, surprise surprise, a submarine takes out the capital. This blunder also leads a number of ICBMs being caught in the silos when the Soviet counterattack comes, resulting in the air crew in the last part of the book having a much more difficult time fulfilling their mission.

I also appreciate how the book is realistic with regards to the grim reality of a nuclear war, namely that there wouldn't really be anything for a bomber crew to come back home to after World War III.
