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. I came across Mister Yang Youde, pyrotechnical Chinese farmer with mega balls after reading about Aki Ra in another thread.

    While Aki Ra is very admirable in a squared-jawed, solemn kind of way, Yang Youde is just balls out funny. And gutsy. I don't know what it is about this scrawny little clod-hopping Chinese geek that cracks me up so much. :salut:

    Any one know of any other real Nails characters who were funny, barmy, or just plain stylish about it?

    man went into battle armed with a samurai sword, a longbow and a claymore....

    any man with the balls to do that is nails in my opinion
  7. I don't know if you're aware, but the dwellings of people like Yang Xiansheng are colloquially known as 'nail houses' in China - because they refuse to be hammered down.
