Yep today is December 7. Just realized it when I looked at my Windows clock.

A day that changed history.

In all honesty I had to think about the date to remember. As more and more of the people who were alive on dec 7th 1941 (and old enough to remember it) are dying it will become less and less significant in the eyes of the general populace.

I'll give you a hint. Jerry Bruckheimer wasn't actually there.

edit by Govtcheez: If you're "not trying to start a conversation that gets locked", it's a lot easier to just not post, you moron.

edit by EvBladerunnervE: I only included the disclaimer to discourage people from going "OMFG anti-american pig, how dare you say that Pearl Harbor could of been prevented if the military didn't scrap the plans for building a radar transmission station", hoping that there could be a "thread within a thread" posting format.

With you, I probably should have assumed, but c'mon - some of the people here probably have no idea. My bad, sorry.

> if the military didn't scrap the plans for building a radar transmission station

Seriously, shut the hell up.

With the exception of Dogma any movie with Ben I-Couldn't-Act-My-Way-Out-Of-A-Paper-Bag pretty much sucks.

What do you mean?? Gigli and Jersey Girl are instant classics!

Seriously though, Good Will Hunting was pretty good, not that Ben had anything to do about it. Oh, and he played Basketball Player #10 in the great cult classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer, so he's been in some good ones ;)

This thread was not intended to talk about a movie nor how Pearl Harbor could have been prevented.

Even with the radar system we could have never taken on the 300 some aircraft that bombarded Pearl. Our planes wouldn't have made much of a difference. Anti-aircraft fire would have but the transmission about the Japanese ultimatum was 55 minutes late.

Have some respect people.

I wasn't alive then, so I shouldn't have to know about that date.


Just kidding.
