Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. After hearing a debate on a radio station the other day on the lovley topic of suicide bombers, on of the guest said that the 72 virgins promised to a martyr is actually a mis-translation, and is in fact 72 raisins (a great and expensive delacacy in aceint times). After doing some Googling there seesm to be quite a bit of debate on the net about it. Can anyone confirm this as myth or fact?
     
  2. Is the number of rasins/virgins index linked?
     
  3. Not under NuLab. They introduced a stealth raisin tax. You only get 34 now, regardless of how many Allah promised you.
     
  4. marvelous, 72 raisins and one nut, who says Allah has no humour
     
  5. after blowing yourself up, do you think you'll be able to find any nuts?
     
  6. as in your a nut to blow yourself up believing that your going to get laid........never mind
     
  7. as in where the hell will your nuts end up....
     
  8. Would they be raisins de pas etre?
     
  9. What if you have a nut or raisin allergy? Does paradise cater for those with allergies? Are they seedless raisins? You know, there's quite a bit that needs sorting out here.
     
  10. Fact?? How can it be when it's all a pack of lies!!

    Preparing for a FatWah coming my way!
