Soldiers arrived to fight the battle of Marne in World War 1 - Not on foot or by miniltary airplane, or military vehicle - but by taxi cabs. France took over all the taxi cabs in Paris to get soldiers to the front line.

lol.. I think the soldiers were driving though. I don't think the Cabbies were taking them. I think they just commandeered the vehicles. Unless the vehicles themselves are like Christine or something.

That is the scariest ad I have ever seen.

As for the taxi cab thing, I actually knew about that...thanks to my insane global teacher.

Re: Hello!!

Welcome! :) Do you have an LJ yet? You probably want to create your own account, so that your replies won't be screened as they are when you're on anonymous. Why dont' you tell us a little about yourself?
