My first answer to this thread was a bit derogatory so I supposed I should clean it a bit.

Anyways.

Supatanker. Maybe you should keep your mouth closed about stuff you have no knowledge about?

Instead of 'correcting' a former SBS soldier about the way the SBS operates.

Re: Nine fingered recruit

Quick question for ye, how likely is it that a bloke who'd lopped a finger off be accepted for RM training? Just wondering, I haven't lost a finger yet but there's quite a higher than normal risk of losing a finger where I work. I'm not planning on chopping one off, but if it did happen and it was ...

Ive been told by my mother (avid dog lover) that any white in a dogs feacese (sp?) is a sign of a worm infestation.

To answer this I need to know a bit more. When they strike the armed forces take responsibility for fire fighting dont they? Are the Armed forces as effective or not? Because firefighters deserve a way to show resistance to unpopular changes or conditions. That is true. But if people die that wouldn...

So HC what your saying is you'd prefer to be shot than punched :o Shot by a bb gun yes, but otherwise no lol In the kinnetics of injury, velocity is more important than mass. Kinnetics of injury between a knife stab and being shot are totally different and cant just be debated on mass over velocity...

Kickass, you clearly know all about this then :D I can see the knife example, though I suspect you've missed out the effect surface area has: ie only the tip of a knife has a small surface area, so while that may penetrate the vest, it isn't going to go very far as an ever increasing surface area o...
