Commander In Chief and the Turkish Prime Minster didn’t want to get wet:
People were shitting a brick over this on the internet the last couple days. I’m sure there were worse things those two Marines have done, and will do than hold an umbrella for their boss in the White House Rose Garden.
Today’s Terminal Lance comic on the topic was pretty awesome. That would have been pretty damn funny if one of those marines was like “HA, I’m not holding an umbrella for you”. I don’t even know what would have happened after that, but I’m assuming it would be met with a quick dishonorable discharge.
FateOfDestinee doesn’t really like certain aspects of when girls flaunt it to sell products or gain attention in the firearms industry. I respect her opinion, but I personally have zero problems with that type of marketing. The companies and the girl(s) involved make the choices by their own free will because they feel it would get them a paycheck or sell them more product. That’s business. As a consumer you have to be intelligent enough to look past the good looking girl or guy holding the product. As far as regular facebook or instagram girls taking sexy pictures with guns, I’m not into following people or companies on facebook at all so I haven’t seen that, and the people I follow on instagram don’t do that either. That said, if a regular girl or model etc. wants to take a seductive picture with a gun and she knows it will get her X likes and have Y guys tell her how hot she is, and from that she’ll feel good about herself then good for her I guess. I wouldn’t feel at all comfortable with my girlfriend doing that because I don’t enjoy the thought of guys ogling her, but I’m sure a lot of guys wouldn’t care, and might even encourage it. You just know there are always going to be several idiots that are going to comment rude things like “Fat!”, “Ugly!” and “2/10 would not” no matter what. Putting yourself up on the internet for people to critique and troll definitely takes a lot of self-confidence.
If you want the M16 fire selector switch t-shirt Destinee has on you can grab it at ENDO Apparel.
Spolier alert for some of you: 8:25 – “You will never see me with a gun in a bikini. It’s not going to happen.”
Just wait, I’ll start live-blogging in my underwear and triple my traffic. WHO YOU MAD AT? ME OR YOURSELF?
A look at the shootouts of a South African swat unit:
Filmed over the course of three years by British war cameraman Jeff Chagrin. The SWAT team’s motto is “You have never lived until you have almost died.”.
1:40 – Hahha how operator is that. Very necessary.
Typical room clearing techniques, and other normal safety precautions when encountering potential threats seem to elude these guys. Oh well live to die another day I suppose… It does go with their motto quite well.
Life is so much cooler in slow motion. If I had a slow motion camera I’d definitely film myself doing random stuff like hopping out of cars, jumping guard rails, and taking my sunglasses on and off just to re-watch them over and over to see how badass I look.
My suggestion to Richard for a tech assassin: Penetration test on iPads! Line 10 of them up and see how far a .50 BMG round can get.
