German sub- 1942? Shot up but didn't sink. Boarded and confiscated. The real background story on winning WW2.
i thought some dude actually broke the enigma code before they ever found a machine?

True, but there was a commercial version of Enigma sold before the war. And the Poles captured/stold one. There was a 3 rotor and a 4 rotor version. One of the things that helped crack it was a few radio operators who ended every message with 'Heil Hitler"

It wasn't the machine that cracked it, it was a book of codes they were sending on the machine that were captured with it.

"Well read" doesn't mean you understand or comprehend what you read.
And after years of your moronic rambling at UJ, and now here, you're clearly "well read" well beyond your intelligence.

He's an idiot.
In the SAME THREAD, he complains that UJR is too slow... then he criticizes the people who are posting saying they are wasting their lives, they get no sex, and they should be outside doing summer things.
But the whole time he's still posting which means (by his own definition) that he's wasting his life, gets no sex, and isn't outside doing summer things.

However, I would like to thank WTC for providing UJR with the opportunity to roast him alive. This is something he should do on a regular basis.

(oh, wait... he already does)

It's called infatuation. He had to type with the other hand. The main one was busy thinking about me, if you know what I mean.
