Why does the Canadian Military issue us slings? We are not allowed to use them, I'm serious if we try to use them someone comes over and yells at us for not having our weapons ready at all times. The only time we are allowed to use them is when we are carrying someone in a stretcher and need both of our hands. If there is any disbelief in the truthfulness of my statement one need only look at my pictures I'm not once ever seen using my sling.
Okay look I am seriously sympathetic for Jack and his whole situation honestly shit like that just dosent fly with me if somebody steals other peoples stuff they are seriously fucking disghusting people. But on that note what is this group going to do? Honestly everything that can be done is being done so why bother unless you guys are some vigilante crime stoppers or something like that. This whole thing just seems rediculious to me. I don't know is this just your way to try and feel like your making a difference or something? But seriously what happened to Jack shouldn't have happened and I am honestly sorry for him and hope he can get his stuff back.

So I'm doing sentry one night with the army and I'm told this is the real deal pretend that we really are in Afghanistan by my officer. Well at about 01:00 in the morning a group of 3 trucks pulls in I call them to a halt " what's the password" I asked
"I don't know just let me go I'm an officer" he says
"I say sorry sir unless you know the password I can't let you through" I say
"WELL I DONT KNOW IT!" he screams at me
so I say " well then your going to have to die" so I pump off a round into him(don't worry they were blanks and this is all training) and he goes apeshit yelling at me and I told him in a calm voice I had orders and he is dead so shut your mouth. He finally realizes that I am not going to let him through so he gets on the radio and calls my officer and he comes down and asks me what's up I say don't talk to the officer in the car he didn't know the password and I had to shoot him. He starts yelling at me again and my officer kindly told him to shut the fuck up he should have had the password and I did the right thing wasting his retarded ass. Turns out he was the recce party and had been gone all day doing reconnaissance and forgot to call back and get the password when it changed. Moral of the story don't fuck with me and ways call and get the password
We've all seen it amazing pictures made out of objects placed in forge and I'm not denying that I've got no artistic ability in the slightest. However i think it would be cool to see what others can come up with there are 2 simple rules 1. Must be made by you so just put a little something in the corner as proof 2. must be made out of objects no characters can be part of the actual image. I hope to see some amazing things and here are some examples i found off the internet

Something I found and had a good laugh at apparently british soldiers give them to each other when they quit
This is a 12 step program designed specifically to help the members of the armed forces leave and peruse civilian lives.
I am in the military, I have a problem. This is the first step to recovery.
STEP 1. Speech:
*Time should never Begin with zero or end in a hundred. It is not 'zero five thirty' or 'fourteen hundred'. it is 'five thirty' or 'two o'clock'.
*'Fuck' cannot be used to replace whatever word you can't think of right now. try 'Um'.
*Grunting is not talking.
*It's a phone, not a radio. Conversations on a phone do not follow a set procedure and do not end in 'out'.
Step 2. Style:
*Do not put creases in your jeans.
*Do not put creases in the front of your dress shirts.
*Do not iron your collar flat.
Step 3. Women:
*Being divorced by the time your twenty-three is not normal; neither are six-month marriages, even if it is your first.
*Marrying a girl so that you can move out of the barracks does not make financial sense.
Step 4. Personal accomplishments:
*In the real world, being able to do push-ups will not make you better at your job.
*Most people will be slightly disturbed if you tell them about how many people you killed or seen die.
*How much pain you can take is not a personal accomplishment.
Step 5. Drinking:
*In the real world, being drunk before 5 p.m. will get you a reprimand and formal warning, not a pat on the back.
*The time you drank a full slab of beer an pissed in your wardrobe is not a conversation starter.
Step 6. Bodily functions:
*Farting on your co-workers and then giggling while you run away may be viewed as 'unprofessional'
*The size of the dump you took yesterday will not be funny, no matter how big it was, how much it burned or how much it smelled.
*You can't make fun of someone for being sick, no matter how funny it is.
Step 7. The human body:
*Most people will not want to hear about your balls. Odd as that may seem, it's true.
Step 8. Spending habits:
*One day you will have to pay bills
*Buying a $40,000 car on a $20,000 a year salary is a really bad idea
*One day you'll need health insurance.
Step 9. Interacting with civilians:
*Making fun of your neighbour to his face for being fat will not be appreciated.
Step 10. Real jobs:
*They really can fire you
*On the flip side, you really can quit
*Screaming at the people who work for you will not be normal. Remember they really can quit too
*Taking naps at work will not be acceptable
*Remember, 9 to 5, not 0530 to 1800
Step 11. The law:
*Non-judicial punishment does not exist and will not save you from prison
* Your workplace, unlike your command, can't save you and probably won't; in fact, most likely you will be fired about five minutes after they find out you've been arrested.
* Even McDonald's does background checks, and 'conviction' isn't going to help you get the job.
*Fighting is not a normal thing and will get you arrested, not a yelling at on Monday morning before they ask you if you won.
Step 12. General knowledge:
*You can really say what you think about the Prime Minister in public.
*Pain is not weakness escaping the body, it's just pain.
*They wont wear anything shiny that tells you they are more important than you are, so be polite.
*And lastly read the contracts before you sign them. Remember what happened the first time.
The 12 steps to leaving the army was taken from the book Eight Lives Down by: Chris Hunter

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us
Your playing small does not serve the world
There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you
We were all meant to shine as children do
It's not just in some of us it's in everyone
And as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same
As we are liberated from our own fear
Our presence automatically liberates others
Maybe feelings are called feelings because we have no control over them... Maybe we cannot express our feelings into proper words because they are more powerful than words ever will be.

I didn't do this because I'm an obsessive nut who can' let stuff that happened years ago go. I did it because I keep talking to people who believe this and it pisses me off I normally don't use vulgar language but this is one topic that infuriates me way too much to just drop.
I recently did some research into the 9/11 conspiracy and can disprove all of them.
First I have a good friend who is a Firefighter, he and I got talking and I asked him simply can jet fuel melt through steel beams such as the ones in the twin towers. he said he would look into it an about three days later came back and said that even thoe jet fuel isn't extremely hot given about 15 minutes they will burn through them and the builder of the towers who put up the fire barriers on the beams did a faulty job of it. Plus the terrorists had bombs in the plane so that would have made the tower collapse also.
Secondly people said that they saw the glass from the towers explode outward that one is the easiest to explain just watch Holmes on Homes and you will learn that when glass is under pressure it explodes outwards and the glass in the tower had a plane on it that is pretty damn heavy and once that started to collapse the rest of the tower's weight would come down also making it even heavier.
Third the explosions at the base of the tower there is gas lines down there and with the furnaces and fire going the gas at the base in an underground parking structure would explode causing the vehicles to explode.
Fourth the towers fell at free fall speeds about 15 seconds well after the cars blew up the entire foundation was destroyed so add that to the weight of an entire fucking tower plus a plane and there you have it the tower fell pretty fucking fast.
(This one is more of a joke) Finally do you honestly think that Gorge W. Bush is smart enough to pull something like that off?
In conclusion to all you conspiracy believers I doubt this will change most your minds because you have it stuck in your head that the government is out to get you instead of doing the less important task of running your entire fucking country (I don't dislike the United States just to clear that up) so at least think about this and open your eyes the government doesn't hate you and isn't out to get you plus they never would have done this anyway because they have people who could tell them that it is a stupid and would shake your economy.

I've noticed that pretty much any question you've got can be answered by youtube and plus you can look at some pretty cool and funny stuff such as: www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSH4ve6mZTI
