    Legio XXI Rapax

    Just FYI. I thought it kinda cool.
    Legio vigesima prima rapax (Latin for "Twenty-first Predator legion") was a German boarder army of the Roman Empire.

    Nice. They happened to have been stationed in what is now Germany for most of their history.

    So pondering ideas with that shield as an image? Or maybe this inscription in this pic?

    Not the happy ending I was hoping for.

    Well, they met their end in Romania. At least it was Europe.

    Is that the hazard switch symbol at center bottom?

    Touché!

    Man that would make a great grill badge! I'd buy one!

    Just a thought, continuing the Latin theme:

    EXXI Legio: Totus Via Plumbum ut Discrimen Switch.



    Rough Translation from the Latin: All Roads Lead to ... the Hazard Switch.

    Don't laugh, fellas, but I actually DO have one on my desk at work! Okay, go ahead and laugh. A product of years of parochial and Jesuit education.

    But I cheated on this one.... Google translate does the trick.... although I dont really trust it.
