Bump, come on, I put a lot of effort into this - I would like to have at least a few comments :(

Pretty cool.

A reason why you're not getting many comments is that many internet denizens do not like to read, as hard as that seems to believe.

Yawn. Type us the 1883 page Mindsettian Belief System, then we'll be impressed, and not before!


Good work, I always wondered if anything came out of Scotland creepier than a Scottish Russian sub skipper in "Hunt for Red October." Now I know!

No, it is from a game called Haegemonia: Legions of Iron.
