Re: Battle Los Angeles

They did pretty good research into Marine Corps culture. Cheese Tortellini is by far the best MRE out there. Yeah if you can't tell this movie gives me a huge "moto-boner."

I have to ask what the 1000 inaccuracies were according to him though?

Re: Battle Los Angeles

I was like Oh me yarm SO COOL when they drove through the gate to Camp Pendleton because that's the gate I used to go to work through. My problems with this movie: It is pronounced fob, not an eff oh bee. Marines pronounce acronyms, the Army usually says each letter. (In my experience.) Another prob...

Re: The Smoke Pit - Military Q/A

I guess my problem is it got such high ratings for a movie documenting life in Iraq even though they apparently didn't even attempt to follow real life at all.

Re: The Smoke Pit - Military Q/A

The part where an E7 told his team to "split up" after an IED went off was ridiculous. Almost as ridiculous as an EOD guy sniping better than guys that are actually trained on that weapon. Not to mention that the movie took place in 2004 and they were wearing ACUs (2006) playing Gears of W...

I'm pretty sure a claymore is a mine. It would really suck to be inside that thing. Claymores have a back blast of like 50m. That bitch'll get loud on the inside, and I don't know if I trust my life to aluminum armor.

The smoke pit is where everyone goes to smoke, which means it's where everyone goes to talk. I've never used a flash bang. Frag grenades aren't that cool. I mean they're fun, but not what you'd think they are.

I don't understand why a conscientious objector would join the military. I don't hate them. Every job in the military supports killing in one way or another so I'm not sure why they would join.

Hello, xkcd. In the past some users have asked me questions about the military, and I have seen a few military members on here, so I thought service members should have a place to come talk about fuck-fuck games or a place where users may inquire about the military.

It takes time to make a well aimed shot. That's about on par with sustained fire of an M16.
