Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

    Book and TV, Sunday C4 9pm. Excellent entertainment!

    A US Army officer gets sent on a fact-finding mission in the 1970s among the Californian hippie community to look at "new age" warfare - what a detachment that must have been! He comes up with the concept of the "First (Earth) Battalion" in which the idea is to enter combat zones carrying lambs, playing soothing indigenous music and to develop the concept of the "warrior-monk" with the ultimate ability to walk through walls and think people dead!

    Apparently there is a "goat lab" at Bragg where soldiers attempt to stare goats to death. And Rummy has recalled a "hamster killer" to stare Guantanamo detainees into spilling secrets!

    One bloke was so convinced of his ninja-like invincibility that he lay down as a jeep drove over his stomach. This normally worked if the driver slowed down to a crawl, but on the last occasion the driver was unaware of this and drove over at speed, killing the stuntman! The US military claimed later that he was killed in a helicopter accident in Nicaragua!

    The hamster killer conveniently lost his hamster-killing video and later produced a video of two hamsters but had decided not to show the moment of death to a "left-wing" journalist!

    ..admittedly here is probably a kernel of truth in the roots of these "researches" based on the physical endurance exploits of East Asian martial artists. But this is taking the p!ss!
     
  5. staring/worrying is that the same thing?

    Just had TV on in background.
    Oh my, oh my, that's what happens to the kids when 'mommy' is popping happy pills all during her pregnancy!

    You can't stare at them from behind, if you want to look them in the eyes they should be on top - that way you get tongues as well!

    I thought that the Brits went for sheep/goats and the Spams went for pigs?!?

    I want to rejoin and remuster into the British equivalent of the First Earth Battalion! I'm growing my hair long, there's some Hawkwind on the stereo and the hydroponic cellar is doing its job nicely!!!
