No you didn't get me at all. I think I was hiding behind one of the artillery pieces, or some other piece of cover. People were already shooting, so I was hunched down when BOOM!! Since I was already in cover I didn't get hit... but holy shit it was loud... I thought it was a grenade going off not five feet from me...
"War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend: the city of the Men of Numenor, and I would have her loved for her memory, her ancientry, her beauty, and her present wisdom. Not feared, save as men may fear the dignity of a man, old and wise." - J.R.R. Tolkien
