Re: The Smoke Pit - Military Q/A

I hope nobody joined because they thought women would be all up on em.

In other news, farting has been banned in A-Stan, because it's offensive to the locals. Meanwhile dropping a deuce behind a wall in a marketplace is still socially acceptable.

Re: The Smoke Pit - Military Q/A

There's a lot of free training to be found in the military you might like. Unless you like sitting in a hole in scorching heat or p...

Re: Child Labor in Washington

"Bruised knees and bad backs" is what comes with being an agricultural worker. Kids aren't going to be missing school because the harvest isn't during school. I think it's good for kids to learn the meaning of hard work and how to save money.

Maybe it's because I'm from a rural area, but I don't really see what's wrong here. I worked on agricultural operations when I was young and nothing bad happened to me. It's kind of expected of you when you live in a rural area. Shit I roofed houses when I was 10.

This is how we test that. The Army is developing one similar to it. I'm in favor of scrapping the PFT and using the CFT, but I'm in the minority.

Yes, Marines and Army train differently. We're more aggressive, and move quicker. The Army has more firepower, but they move slower. In Korea the Army was in charge and didn't know how to use us.
