Re: GO MARINES

What can we take from this?

1. That some professors are idiots?

2. That US Marines hit people for holding a differing views to theirs?

3. That the way to prove the existence of God is through violence?

Thought it was ridiculous the first time someone posted that here and nothings changed.

Success is never final;
Failure is never fatal;
Don't let your fears choose your destiny!
