    Happeh Thanksgibbing!

    That's right, you guys know what it is today?


    That's right mofos, the Gears of War 3 booster map pack came out today with Clocktower, and brought Bulletmarsh back too.

    And not only that, a mode called Thanksgibbing lets you use cluckshots, which is awesome, cause they shoot chickens.

    I can't help but think something else was supposed to happen today though... I smell food :/

    It's an excuse to overspend on food and eat TONS. But it's a tradition, so we do it anyways. Every country has those types of holidays.

    So apparently the USA troops in Iraq and Afghanistan received a lot of food for this celebration. Isn't funny to think that meanwhile the kids and families in there didn't had this kind of luck.

    It's actually not about the food. It's about what you're thankful for. The feast is just a side effect of sorts.

    I'm just saying, this celebration born because of this idea that Europeans and Natives come together to celebrate (we know it might not be true and all that, but this is the fantasy of the celebration) and so in Iraq and Afghanistan, people chose to celebrate for them self and don't represent what the fantasy of the festivity show.

    Specially it's more funny if you think how bad things are there and how easily it is to feed all the troops there. If you have the power to do this, giving to the people who lives there shouldn't be such a big of a issue.

    But obviously, this festivity has a religion principle, so probably everything would went to shit if you were like "hey come to eat with us and pray to our God".
