Yes, that's right. The Brits have landed and are ready to take Forest's record for running across America. However, this race is going to be a real box of chocolates as six men embark on one epic challenge not knowing what mental and physical perils they will face.

Mark Ormond, a triple amputee, will be taking part hoping to raise as much money as possible for the Help for Heroes charity. The race started today in New York and you may see them pass through your town any day soon. They call it The Gumpathon.

P.S. This isn't going to turn into a pro-war/anti-war thread-fest. It is just to let the majority American ATS member base know of what is a pretty epic challenge taking place now.

What hollywood was hinting at with forrest gump's marathon was that he'd been exposed to the aids™ virus, after having had unprotected sex with Jenny, and needed to sweat it out by his self-genius being his guide. Deeper still was the message that Hanx is gay in real life, thus his rabid promotion for the hoax. This allowed the timeline to be shifted back further, generating a larger base for incubation and, of course, death.

I specialize in zionist influences in the 20th and 21st century.
