    1:34 if you go to Genoa and say that this happened, they will punch you. Corsica was NOT sold. Genoa asked France to suppress revolts in Corsica, because the Republic was going bankrupt. Instead, Franch army went to the island and did NOTHING. Just waited. Genoa had a huge debt with France, that was rising and rising. So, Genoa, tired to be fooled around and trying to survive, accepted to sell the island, in order to extinguish the debt. The legend about Genoa selling the island is a lie, and guess who spread it? Right, France

    Inchon Korea, 1950. I was the best cook Uncle Sam ever saw, slinging hash for the Fighting 103rd. As we marched north, our supply lines were getting thin. One day a couple of GI's found a crate, inside were 600 lbs of prime Texas steer. At least it once was prime. The use date was 3 weeks past, but I was arrogant, I was brash, I thought if I used just the right spices, cooked it long enough...I went too far. I over seasoned it. Men were keeling over all around me. I can still hear the retching, the screaming. I sent 16 of my own men to the latrines that night. They were just boys. Bobby Colby, all that kid wanted to do was go home. Well he went home alright, with a crater in his colon the size of a cutlet. Had to sit him on a cork the 18 hour flight home! Anyway....we delivered the bomb and I never touched a spatula again.
