    I think that was the whole point of the video in the first place. Excellent satire on their part.

    I know. We ruin it for everyone at the top end. If we'd just change our ways, or, better yet, go completely away, things would be so much better for those that get tainted by us.

    Mark Thought I'd throw that definition up there to "kick it up a notch" 'cause there's rarely a day that goes by that I don't hear how bad I am.

    Actually, I would say that is how many people feel about ALL Civil War reenactors. Yes, there is the "farby" mainstreamers but what about guys that sleep on the ground, eat meat that is days old, and all that is entailed in campaigning. Just yesterday I was explaining to a colleague at work what all I was doing to prepare for campaigning this weekend and he looked at me like I was crazier than usual. Of course, people always wonder why anyone wants to run around over a summer weekend playing soldier (their perception) in wool and cotton cloth, covered with straps and various straps and belts that prevent our cloths from breathing. And then you throw in the anti anything to do with war crowd. Yes, we all are indeed odd-balls to many people here in the U.S.

    They do know the difference at 200+ yards the difference between a 350 man regiment and a 100 man regiment....

    It's that old 5 yard rule again....
