If you happened to pass by the castle today you would have seen it adorned with American flags in honor of those who served and continue to serve our country here and abroad in military service. GorT has had the privilege to work close to and in support of our military and has several close friends who continue to serve in the armed services both actively and in a reserve capacity. My hat is off to you and your families.
Some may have forgotten the origin of the day and why November 11th was selected. Let’s take a brief tour:
As World War I drew to an end, the fighting ceased when an armistice between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month and thus, November 11, 1918 was seen as the end of the “war to end all wars.” The next year, President Wilson declared November 11, 1919 as Armistice Day. Congress formally recognized the day in 1926 and it became a full, legal holiday in the United States in 1938. In 1954, after World War II and the Korean War, Congress formally amended the act of 1938 by removing “Armistice” and replacing it with “Veterans”.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
