    Tales of the Gun is a television series broadcast on the History Channel featuring the history of firearms that ran for one season in 1998. The usual episode includes interviews of historians and people who used the featured weapon, shows how the weapons were made, and shows the featured weapon being fired on a shooting range. The series narrator for the US version is Thom Pinto, veteran voice actor.

    Ep 6: "Guns of Remington"

    E. Remington and Sons (1816–1896) was a manufacturer of firearms and typewriters. Founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington in Ilion, New York, on March 1, 1873 it started manufacturing the first commercial typewriter.

    Becoming "E. Remington & Sons"

    Eliphalet II would forge his first rifle barrel. His initial experiment would prove a success, and the young blacksmith proceeded to make others to meet the growing demand for sporting rifles in the Mohawk Valley. With the completion of the Erie Canal, connecting Buffalo with Albany, commerce in the Mohawk Valley expanded remarkably. To meet the increased demand for rifle barrels, in 1828 the Remingtons moved their forge and foundry from its rural setting to 100 acres (0.4 km²;) of land they had purchased astride the canal and abutting the Mohawk River near a town then called Morgan's Landing (later Ilion), New York. The move coincided with the elder Eliphalet's death, and Eliphalet II assumed control of the business.

    In 1839 Eliphalet was joined by his oldest son, Philo Remington (to make the business "E. Remington & Son"), and in 1845 his second son, Samuel, also joined the company, afterwards called "E. Remington & Sons". Remington's third son, Eliphalet III, would later join the company as well. During this period, the Remingtons specialized almost exclusively in the manufacture of rifle barrels. These barrels, marked with the distinctive "REMINGTON" stamp near their breeches, were recognized for their quality and reasonable price. Many, if not most, of the independent gunsmiths in the Mohawk Valley purchased completed (but not rifled) barrels from Remington and assembled them into firearms custom ordered by their customers. As demand increased, the Remingtons added other parts to their inventory, first percussion locks made in Birmingham, England but marked with their stamp "REMINGTON", and later sets of brass gun furniture, including trigger guards, butt plates, and patch boxes. After 1846, first martial longarm and then revolver production dominated the company's workforce.

    In 1848 purchased gun making machinery from the Ames Manufacturing Company of Chicopee, MA and took over a contract for Jenks breechloading percussion carbines for the U.S. Navy. Remington supplied the U.S. Navy with its first breech-loading rifle. Remington supplied the U.S. Army with rifles in the Mexican-American War (1846 to 1848). Shortly after Remington took over a defaulted contract (by John Griffith of Cincinnati) for 5000 U.S. Model 1841 Percussion Mississippi rifles. Based on the success of filing these orders, subsequent contrats followed in the 1850s.

    In 1856 the business was expanded to include the manufacture of agricultural implements. Upon Eliphalet's death in 1861, his son, Philo, took over the firm during the Civil War, and diversified the product line to include sewing machines (manufactured from 1870 to 1894) and typewriters (1873), both of which were exhibited at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876.


  • The Adventures of Robin Hood

    The Adventures of Robin Hood is a 1938 American swashbuckler film directed by Michael Curtiz and William Keighley, and starring Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone, and Claude Rains. Written by Norman Reilly Raine and Seton I. Miller, the film is about a Saxon knight who, in King Richard's absence in the Holy Land on Crusade, fights back as the outlaw leader of a rebel guerrilla army against Prince John and the Norman lords oppressing the Saxon commoners. The Adventures of Robin Hood was filmed in Technicolor.


    When Richard the Lionheart (Ian Hunter), the King of England, is taken captive by Leopold V, Duke of Austria while returning from the Third Crusade, his brother Prince John (Claude Rains) takes power and proceeds to oppress the Saxon commoners. Prince John raises their taxes, supposedly to raise Richard's ransom, but in reality to secure his own position on the throne.

    One man stands in his way, a minor Saxon knight, Sir Robin of Locksley (Errol Flynn). Robin acquires a loyal follower when he saves Much (Herbert Mundin) from being arrested by Sir Guy of Gisbourne (Basil Rathbone) for poaching in Sherwood Forest, having killed one of the king's deer to feed his family. Robin goes alone to see Prince John at Gisbourne's castle in Nottingham and announces to John's assembled supporters and a contemptuous Lady Marian Fitzwalter known as Maid Marian (Olivia DeHavilland) that he will do all in his power to oppose John warning him that he will "exact a death for a death" and restore Richard to his rightful place. John's nobles attempt to capture him but, in spite of their efforts, Robin escapes.

    With his lands and castle now forfeit and with a price on his head, Robin flees with his friend Will à Gamwell (Patric Knowles) who, due to his red clothing, is known as Will Scarlet. They take refuge in Sherwood where they meet John Little whom they merrily nickname Little John (Alan Hale, Sr.), recruited by Robin after John trounces him in a bruising quarterstaff bout. Throughout the north of England men join their growing band, the Merry Men. During this time Robin meets and provokes the rotund Friar Tuck (Eugene Pallette) into a swordfight. When the friar shows that he can give as good as he gets Robin persuades him to join his band of outlaws to provide them with spiritual comfort.

    Now known as the outlaw Robin Hood, he binds his men by an oath, to fight for a free England till King Richard returns. They are to rob the rich only to give to the poor, and to treat all women with courtesy, "rich or poor, Norman or Saxon." In a short time Prince John's Norman and Angevin cronies find themselves harassed beyond endurance with many of their troops receiving swift and deadly retribution for their abuses, courtesy of the Merry Men's black arrows, the sign of their rebellion.

    One day, Robin and his men capture a large party of Normans transporting taxes through Sherwood. Among Robin's "guests" are Gisbourne, the cowardly Sheriff of Nottingham (Melville Cooper), and Lady Marian. Robin and his men "liberate" the tax money, swearing to a man to contribute it towards King Richard's ransom. Marian is at first disdainful of Robin and his "band of cut-throats" but, seeing his beneficence in caring for hunted, maimed and dispossessed Saxon families, she becomes convinced of his good intentions and begins to see the reality of the Norman brutality. Noting that among the men being cared for is a Norman she wonders that Robin has assisted him. Robin readily replies, "Norman or Saxon, what's that matter? It's injustice I hate, not the Normans." Marian now admires Robin for his goodness and bravery. Eventually Robin allows the humiliated Gisbourne and sheriff to depart Sherwood on foot, dressed in rags, "a lesson in humility, if not in mercy," telling them that they have Marian's presence to thank for his sparing their lives.

    Incensed at the loss of 50,000 golden marks with which he planned to pay off supporters Prince John furiously blames the Sheriff and Sir Guy of nincompoopery. Hoping on a return to favor the Sheriff comes up with a cunning scheme to capture Robin ny announcing an archery tournament. With the grand prize being a golden arrow to be presented by the Lady Marian, the Sheriff is sure that Robin will be unable to resist the challenge. All goes as planned; Robin identifies himself by winning the competition and is taken prisoner. Gisbourne sentences him to be hanged. Marian, however, finds Robin's men to plan an escape. The Merry Men manage to rescue Robin on his way to the gallows. Later, in dark of night, the outlaw sneaks into the castle to thank Marion. She and Robin pledge their love for each other. Robin wants her to come away with him to Sherwood but Marian refuses, convincing Robin she can be of more service by remaining near Gisbourne and the Sheriff so she can warn him of further treachery.

    Meanwhile, disguised as a band of merchants, King Richard and a few of his loyal knights return to England. Dining at an inn the king is recognized by the villainous Bishop of the Black Canons (Montague Love) who overhears one of Richard's men call him "sire". The traitorous bishop hurries to inform Prince John. Upon receiving the news, John and Gisbourne plot to dispose of Richard quietly before he can raise an army. Dickon Malbete (Harry Cording), a disgraced former knight and Gisbourne's chief henchman, is sent to assassinate the king in return for the restoration of his rank and Robin's manor and estate. Marian overhears them and writes a note warning Robin, but Gisbourne finds it and has her arrested. Although she is a royal ward whom only the king can condemn to death for treason John assures her that the law will be observed for, in 48 hours, after he is crowned, he will order her death for treason. Marian's nurse, Bess (Una O'Connor), has been keeping company with Much at the Saracen's Head tavern. She anxiously informs him of Richard's reappearance and begs him to find Robin to save Marian. Much hastens off, intercepts and, after a desperate struggle, kills Dickon.

    Seeking Robin, King Richard and his escort disguise themselves as wealthy monks and journey to Sherwood Forest. Accosted by Robin who seeks the monks' money for the poor Richard assures him that he is traveling on the king's business. Robin happily invites him to dine in the forest. Will comes across the injured Much and takes him back to the outlaws. Much explains that Richard has returned and that Dickon has been sent to do away with him. He dissuades Robin from sending men out to intercept Dickon. There is no need, says Much since, "He ain't gonna murder no one no more." Much tells Robin how John intends to have himself crowned king in Nottingham the next day by the Bishop of the Black Canons. He has no idea where the king is. Robin, anxious to protect Richard, dispatches his men to find him. Certain now of Robin's loyalty Richard and his men remove their monks' robes and receive the Merry Men's homage.

    Knowing that the castle is too strong to take by force, Robin uses guile. He and the king visit the bishop and persuade him to include in his entourage the outlaw band and Richard's knights, all disguised as monks. Through this ruse they gain entry to the castle and interrupt John's coronation. A melee breaks out during which Robin and Gisbourne engage in a prolonged fight with broadswords. Gisbourne is finally slain and Robin rescues Marian from her cell where she has been praying while awaiting rescue or death.

    Richard is restored to the throne; he exiles his brother, the sheriff and the bishop, pardons the outlaws and ennobles Robin as Baron of Locksley and Earl of Sherwood and Nottingham. He then 'orders' him to marry the Lady Marian who accepts, "with all my heart." Robin and Marian sneak to the door of the great hall. With a twinkle in his eye the former outlaw exclaims, "May I obey all your commands with equal pleasure, sire!"

    Video of the Day End the Fed Rallies are Exploding Throughout Germany

    This is a fascinating development and one that I had no idea was happening until today. It seems that rallies are spreading throughout Germany protesting the corrupt and dying global status quo. One of the key targets of these groups is the U.S. Federal Reserve system, which as I and many others have maintained, is the core cancer infecting the entire planet.

    According to the organizer of these rallies, they have now spread to up to 100 cities and have a combined attendee base of around 20,000. What is also interesting, is that the mainstream media in Germany is calling them Nazis. In Germany, if you don’t support Central Banking, this apparently means you are a Nazi. What a joke. Just more proof mainstream media everywhere is complete and total propaganda. It is also a good sign, since it shows the desperate lengths to which the power structure will go to keep their criminal ponzi alive.

    Do these folks seem like Nazis to you?

    It is 100 years today the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife Sophia were assassinated on a Sarajevo street in 1914. Like most pivotal events in history facts and details are cast to the wind while the cover story is allowed to manifest. The result is the human race can be diverted to an abyss without realizing it. Virtually every war or pogrom starts this way. The repeated lie becomes set in stone and revered while the facts that reveal the true story are seldom regarded in the main. We review the assassination and highlight those ignored details that say they knew. They allowed it to happen. It was truly an Austro Hungarian plot at the behest of Franz Joseph to provide a reason to invade Serbia and remove the heir to the throne that he despised. The Austrians were warned in advance. Their were two plots. In the warning reference was made to an ethnic Serbian Austro Hungarian soldier shooting Franz Ferdinand. Come back to 1914 while we look at the fine details with the conspirator's hindsight. Cui Bono? Franz Joseph.

    The plot was lead by Dragutin Dimitrijević of Serbian military intelligence. He orchestrated the brutal assassination of King Alexander I and Queen Draga in 1903. Many of these conspirators were used again. A previous assassination attempt on June 15, 1910 on Governor Marijan Varešanin by Bogdan Žerajić  was used as the basis to indoctrinate the Sarajevo assassins. They were in fact recipients of newspaper clippings of the attempt in the post. Mind control was in its infancy but established. This may have been their Queen of Diamonds the playing card used in the Manchurian Candidate.

    Franz Joseph ordered the Archduke to Sarajevo to inspect troops. In his military capacity, it was the first and only time Countess Sophie was permitted to attend an official function. Franz Ferdinand married below his station. His wife was shunned by the family. It was their 14th wedding anniversary. Their children were not permitted to succeed to the throne. Sophie feared for their safety. It was also the anniversary date of the 1389 Battle of Kosovo where the Sultan was assassinated.

    Danilo Ilić a plotter was put in touch with Dragutin Dimitrijević. They were members of the Black Hand a shadowy special forces operation that was revived after use in other conflicts. Originally they were supposed to kill Governor Oskar Potiorek. The plot failed. However, Potiorek was the hidden co-ordinator of the movements of the vehicle and the police. Princip even stated he intended to shoot him too. That may well of been an attempted application of the code of silence.

    The plotters were provided with four pistols all the same make, model and caliber; six hand grenades; money; cyanide pills; ammunition; maps and police schedules. They were allowed access to a special tunnel across the border and alternate identities of customs officers. The intelligence agency Narodna Odbrana reported the activities to Serbian Prime Minister Nikola Pašić. He ordered the attempt to halt. He warned the Austro Hungarians. However, another message put the plan in motion again.

    Special security officers were left behind at the train station and replaced with Sarajevo police. The use of soldiers to line the streets was not permitted. This is where Governor Potiorek takes control. Some of the plotters choked but one threw a bomb at the car. It missed and exploded under the next one. There were casualties. Franz Ferdinand attended his Town Hall meeting and then went to the hospital. No one told the driver they changed the route. He stopped at the suggestion of Potiorek beside Princip. The car stalled; the shots were fired. After the grenade attack Potiorek still refused to deploy the troops because they weren't in their dress uniforms.

    Even in death the couple were snubbed. They could not be buried at the royal crypt. The funeral was a private affair. The European royals were walled out. This was a major ingredient to the cause of WWI. Kaiser Wilhelm wished to use the funeral to sort out the peace. There would be none. The children were sent the bill for the funeral. The military were forbidden to salute. It is obvious who caused the assassination. Rioting against Serbs ensued organized by Potiorek. A skirmish at the border lead to full invasion. The war was on. The main plotters were arrested and tried. Princip and Nedeljko Čabrinović died in prison of TB. It may well have been intentionally applied. After a change in government the military plotters were tried for other offences. Three were executed including Apis. Dead men tell no tales.

    On 21 June, Ambassador Jovanović met with Austro-Hungarian Finance Minister Bilinski. According to Serbian Military Attaché to Vienna, Colonel Lesanin, Ambassador Jovanović, spoke to Bilinski and "...stressed in general terms the risks the Archduke heir apparent might run from the inflamed public opinion in Bosnia and Serbia. Some serious personal misadventure might befall him. His journey might give rise to incidents and demonstrations that Serbia would deprecate but that would have fatal repercussions on Austro-Serbian relations."

    In 1924 J. Jovanović went public stating that his warning had been made on his own initiative, and what he said was that "Among the Serb youths (in the army) there may be one who will put a ball-cartridge in his rifle or revolver in place of a blank cartridge and he may fire it, the bullet might strike the man giving provocation (Franz Ferdinand).

    Apis's confession to ordering the assassination of Franz Ferdinand states that Russian Military Attaché Artamonov promised Russia's protection from Austria-Hungary if Serbia's intelligence operations became exposed and that Russia had funded the assassination. Artamonov denied the involvement of his office in an interview with Albertini. Artamonov stated that he went on vacation to Italy leaving Assistant Military Attaché Alexander Werchovsky in charge and though he was in daily contact with Apis he did not learn of Apis's role until after the war had ended. Albertini writes that he "remained unconvinced by the behavior of this officer." Werchovsky admitted the involvement of his office and then fell silent on the subject.

    There is evidence that Russia was at least aware of the plot before 14 June. De Schelking writes:

    On 1 June 1914 (14 June new calendar), Emperor Nicholas had an interview with King Charles I of Roumania, at Constanza. I was there at the time ... yet as far as I could judge from my conversation with members of his (Russian Foreign Minister Sazonov's) entourage, he (Sazonov) was convinced that if the Archduke (Franz Ferdinand) were out of the way, the peace of Europe would not be endangered.

    Everybody knew. Franz Ferdinand was heir to the Habsburg throne. He seemed to be a decent person. So was his wife. People like that are prevented from power. Nothing has changed in 100 years.

    What is it to be a fisherman? What is life without the modern conveniences we take for granted.? What is a communal living? How would we survive in an non industrialized world? First and foremost we must be thankful. It is a hard life, but God provides. Be a fisher of men too.

    A third of the population of Mauritania lives, directly or indirectly, from artisanal fisheries. Bamba Fall, a unionist fisherman, invites us into the hectic activity of the port of Nouakchott: the tragic stories in the sea of ​​old fishermen, the hard work of fishing gear from blacksmithing, imaginatively recycled materials, the sale of fish by bold women, the education of children by the hand of Imam of the mosque... A world in which the dangerous art of fishing exists thanks to the solidarity of those who share it.

    Make no mistake about it. Princip was an agent provocateur doing the dirty work of the Franz Joseph I of Austria. The Archduke was reviled by the Emperor. He married below his station and was now heir to the throne. The assassination was in Austria's best interests because it gave them the reason to invade Austria. Cui bone? Franz Joseph and Austria. The old Roman adage of who benefits points to the solution of the crime in this case a false flag to precipitate WWI. If we don't master the tricks, we will destroy ourselves with WWIII. Learn the tricks. Wars are orchestrated from the get go. From the Maine to the Gulf of Tonkin to the yellowcake, it's the same trick. Why we fall for them is a broader question? The USS Liberty incident broke the pattern. It was supposed to start a nuclear war in the Middle East.

    The Assassin: How Gavrilo Princip fired the deadliest shot in history

    Thursday, June 19, 2014

    Reporter: Charles Wooley Producer: Nick Greenaway

    Gavrilo Princip fired the deadliest shot in history. One bullet that richoted around the world and defined the course of the 20th century. Princip assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo in 1914, triggering the beginning of World War One and the unprecedented carnage that would follow.

    Sixty thousand Australians would make the ultimate sacrifice on the field of battle. This week marks 100th anniversary of the Archduke's assassination. Charles Wooley revisits the exact spot where the world changed forever and meets the assassin's family, who claim he's a hero.

    Alternate copy.

    PART 2:

    They give us the crap line that the assassination was the cause of WWI. That's the excuse not the reason. The quest for power by competing factions vying to be the New World Order was. The main theme for battle was to destroy the Old World Order monarchies by fighting to oblivion and do it again later for WWII political dominions of dollars. At the doorstep of WWIII we will see if we take the bait again. Will it be a bullet or a false flag attack or a nuclear event as has been attempted recently? The causes are manufactured and sold to a gullible public. Mind control programming loyalties rush us off to slaughter. If there was a hidden hand, it was the bankers and their minions. I suspect the Emperor Franz Josef killed his own nephew in a vast conspiracy to eliminate an heir to the throne. He married a lesser woman who was shunned. She could not be Empress in that view. Then the Emperor could start a war and conquer vast swathes of Europe for his empire. It was win win until the karma wave blew across the battlefields. He lost. The Habsburgs were traditionally Holy Roman Emperors. The Crown jewels were the ones Hitler craved and seized. So what is war a response to circumstance or a power play for dominion well orchestrated?

    See how one bullet led to the death of 30 million people, and a lone assassin brought about the end of the world as it was known.

    Its names are loaded with irony. "The Great War" saw chivalry and honor on the battlefield replaced by technology and firepower that swept millions to their deaths. "The War to End All Wars" was followed less than 25 years later by an even deadlier conflict.

    WORLD WAR I: THE DEATH OF GLORY shows how this epic struggle had a more profound effect on civilization than any other war in history. New countries had to be built on the ruins of a continent. It was the end of kings, empires and innocence, and the beginning of weapons like the U-boat, the machine gun, the tank and poison gas. Graphic footage captures the horrors of trench warfare in battles like Verdun, where over one million men died. Riveting commentary from leading experts details the awesome effects of new technology on the battlefield, and the revolutionary changes that the end of the war brought including the near-inevitable rebirth of Germany as a military force to be reckoned with in World War II. Visit the killing fields where history was made, and relive the horrors of the conflict through period commentary and archival artifacts.

    From the fateful shot fired by Gavrilo Princip to the birth of the modern world and warfare, this is the story of WORLD WAR I: THE DEATH OF GLORY.

    Executive Order 6102 is a United States presidential executive order signed on April 5, 1933, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt "forbidding the Hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States". The order criminalized the possession of monetary gold by any individual, partnership, association or corporation.

    The U.S. Treasury came into possession of a large number of safe deposit boxes due to bank failures. During the 1930s, over 3,000 banks failed and the contents of their safe deposit boxes were remanded to the custody of the Treasury. If no one claimed the box, it remained in the possession of the Treasury. As of October 1981, there were 1,605 cardboard cartons in the basement of the Treasury, each carton containing the contents of one unclaimed safe deposit box.

    The future never looked better in the past. Singularity on the horizon with man machines. It was way ahead of its time. It's a good copy and gives the TV show Beyong Westworld some background for those too young to know. Enjoy.


    Westworld is a 1973 science fiction western-thriller film written and directed by novelist Michael Crichton and produced by Paul Lazarus III. It stars Yul Brynner as an android in a futuristic Western-themed amusement park, and Richard Benjamin and James Brolin as guests of the park.

    Westworld was the first theatrical feature directed by Michael Crichton. It was also the first feature film to use digital image processing, to pixellate photography to simulate an android point of view. The film was nominated for Hugo, Nebula and Golden Scroll (a.k.a. Saturn) awards, and was followed by a sequel film, Futureworld, and a short-lived television series, Beyond Westworld. In August 2013, HBO announced plans for a television series based on the original film.


    Sometime in the near future a high-tech, highly-realistic adult amusement park called Delos features three themed "worlds" — West World (the American Old West), Medieval World (medieval Europe), and Roman World (pre-Christian Rome). The resort's three "worlds" are populated with lifelike androids that are practically indistinguishable from human beings, each programmed in character for their assigned historical environment. For $1,000 per day, guests may indulge in any adventure with the android population of the park, including sexual encounters and even a fight to the death, depending on the android model. Delos' tagline in its advertising promises "Have we got a vacation for you!"

    Peter Martin (Benjamin), a first-timer, and his friend John Blane (Brolin), who has visited previously, visit West World. One of the attractions in West World is the Gunslinger (Brynner), a robot programmed to instigate gunfights. The firearms issued to the park guests have temperature sensors that prevent them from shooting humans or anything else living, but allow them to "kill" the "cold-blooded" androids. The Gunslinger's programming allows guests to outdraw it and "kill" it, always returning the next day for a new duel.

    The technicians running Delos notice problems beginning to spread like an infection among the androids: the robots in Roman World and Medieval World begin experiencing an increasing number of breakdowns and systemic failures, which are said to have spread to West World. When one of the supervising computer scientists scoffs at the "analogy of an infectious disease," he is told by the Chief Supervisor (Alan Oppenheimer), "We aren't dealing with ordinary machines here. These are highly complicated pieces of equipment, almost as complicated as living organisms. In some cases, they've been designed by other computers. We don't know exactly how they work."

    The malfunctions become less peripheral and more central when an android rattlesnake succeeds in injuring Blane in West World, and, against its programming, an android refuses a guest's sexual advances in Medieval World. The failures escalate until Medieval World's robotic Black Knight kills a guest in a swordfight. The resort's supervisors, in increasing desperation, try to regain control by shutting down power to the entire park, but this traps them in the control rooms, unable to turn the power back on while the robots run amok on reserve power.

    Martin and Blane, passed out drunk after a bar-room brawl, wake up in West World's bordello, unaware of the breakdown. When the Gunslinger challenges the two men to a showdown, Blane treats the confrontation as a typical amusement until the robot outdraws, shoots and actually hits him, mortally wounding him. Martin runs for his life as the robot implacably follows him.

    Martin flees to the other areas of the park, but finds only dead guests, damaged robots, and a panicked technician who is shortly shot by the Gunslinger. Martin climbs down through a manhole in Roman World to the underground control area and discovers that the resort's technicians suffocated when the ventilation system shut down. The Gunslinger stalks Martin through the underground corridors. Ambushing it, Martin throws acid into its face and bolts, returning to the surface in the Medieval World castle. With its optical inputs damaged by the acid, the Gunslinger is unable to track him normally, resorting to infra-red scanning, and Martin sets it on fire with a torch. He tries to rescue a woman chained up in a dungeon, but she turns out to be an android. The burned hulk of the Gunslinger attacks him one last time on the dungeon steps before succumbing to its damage. Martin, apparently the sole human survivor, sits in a state of near-exhaustion and shock, as the irony of Delos' slogan resonates: "Have we got a vacation for you!"
