    BTW Doof, you live on a farm? what do you grow?
    You'll be the first to know Erez, Armagedon is in Jerusalam is'nt it?

    My farm is pretty small by western standards at only 2.5 acres, but I grow veg for the house and animals, which comprise poultry and rabbits, and the odd pig. Half is woodland for firewood etc
    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    One can use one's ancestors to control anything?

    I had no idea.

    Is this yet another 'undead-man-walking' thing?

    Dude, this has always been a problem. But history seems to indicate it is not insurmountable if you've got the right mix of talent, charisma, and bloodthirstiness. Genghis Khan (see below) is certainly one of the best examples. He's worth reading up on if you intend to survive the apocalypse.

    I've always been more of a fan of Augustus, myself. While the role of family connections in his rise to power cannot be discounted, claiming the Imperial throne out of the blood bath that was Roman politics post Julius and bringing forth an Empire whose name still holds magic in 2012 is nothing to sneer at.

    Lord Humongous suffered two major setbacks.

    One: he was waging a siege. This requires resources, and they were smack dab in the middle of an atomic desert.

    Two: He was a victim of dramtic narative. IRL, the road warriors would have simply taken the compound and the equipment inside. That is a sound strategic descision and it would have secured them a dominant possition in the Wasteland. Perhaps they would have dispatched small teams to kidnap some of the engineers attempting to escape. But they wouldn't have expended precious resources when the real treasure was in the ground beneath the compound.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't make for a SWEET ASS DEMOLITION DERBY CAR CHASE / HAND TO HAND BATTLE FOR ULTIMATE DOMINATION!!!!

    So for the sake of the story, the Road Warriors literaly expend every last drop of blood and "the precious juice" trying to take the oil tanker (full of sand).

    One thing for certain though, no one on his crew dared challenge the Ayatollah of Rock n' Rolla's authority except The Great Wez and that was a minor dispute having more to do with workflow and scheduling issues than any actual grab for power.

    Science fact.

    My younger brother summed up that movie as "Mel Gibson kills gay men with cars." I couldn't really argue with him.
