How to protect your computer from getting shot by an MBT

Thank God, I run into this problem all the time!

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

I think it's fake. After all, that tank had had its main spotlight shot out -- this can be clearly seen in some closeups (FACT!) -- so it wouldn't have had the capability of targeting something as small as a computer.

Still, the cake tactic is something we could use against insurgents in the Middle East. They don't eat much cake, or play many video games, and won't know it's a lie.

Stopping a MBT attack against your computer can be a real...Challenger... all right.  :2funny:
