    Default A Test For the Backroomers

    I like these the countries in this order

    1.France
    2.Holland
    3.UK

    Why?

    Some hints.

    1. Order is important.
    2. Texas
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    France shares two letters with Texas. Holland shares one. UK shares none (Though United Kingdom does indeed share 1).

    France because of Louis, Holland because of all the .Org's wonderful Dutchmen. UK is third by process of elimination.

    Drinking with a real live orgah (and fellow sox fan) would be an honor. I am still 18. So you would be doing this knowing that any identification I would have on me would be a complete and utter forgery.

    If that is not your style I understand. I'll just drink some tea

    But seriously, I don't know how viable that would be. I was planning to go home sometime this month but sunday evening would put me into Lubbock sometime around 2 A.M. at best. And driving on the West Texas Roads at night is never a good idea.

    You must learn to plan these things better. But who knows keep me in the loop and if you can do it another time (friday or some such) We'll see.

    Gonna take a shot here:

    France militarily came to Texas' aid against Mexico during Texas' bid for independence.

    Holland came close to giving financial support, but ultimately decided against it due to uncertainty about Texas' future, ability to repay, and the potential of losing trade with Mexico.

    The UK wished to obtain a foothold in Texas for their own interests.

    France fought against the colonial English troops, Holland was the first to recognize America's independence, and the UK and America are good buddies nowadays. How it relates to Texas I dunno doesn't everything in the end relate to Texas??
