I used to use macs. They were frustrating. Some people like them. That’s fine. Some people like self-fladulation too. Some people like Rocky-Road Ice Cream. On both accounts, I do not like them.

Not my fault you chose poorly. Perhaps you’re the European leader who understands the basics of combat but who chooses the wrong target?
