Bunker Talk: “What The Hell Else Do You Have To Do?” Edition
We can talk about private air forces, Area 51 flybys, geopolitics, B-1B hypersonic missile trucks—you know, no big whoop.
Happy Easter and Passover!
Welcome to Bunker Talk. It's like Zoom, but nobody is looking around your living room! This is a weekend open discussion post for the best commenting crew on the net, in which we can chat about all the stuff that went on this week that we didn't cover. We can also talk about the stuff we did. In other words, it's literally an off-topic thread.
The Bunker doors are slowly swinging open.
