"Shut the City Down" Protest - Um, no :)

Oh my, oh my, Dorky_Shit! You've been at it fanatically for over four years now, but you've never actually been able to overcome the feeling that might just be "superior" to you, have you? If that had been the case, then you'd have sacked it yonks ago.

Have you ever thought of actually becoming a proper, mature adult, mush? Just asking, like. :smile: :smile: :smile:

An Irish supremacist? Excuse me if I roll over, cock a cheek, and let forth a blast for that idea.
 
Can you hear my howls of laughter from where you're sitting in your grubby little piss-stinking HMO?

What have I done today?

Spent a couple of hours mowing and clearing brambles out of our field. Took the small mower in for a service. Spent an hour at the car dealers looking at new motors. Have now decided what the new car will be.

Spent some time doing scenery on the model railway for a forthcoming exhibition and now sitting comfortably painting a model for inclusion on said railway with a bottle of Talisker Skye single malt on the desk.

Whereas you will have spent a couple of hours at Old Market Square hawking your Socialist Worker [an oxymoron if ever there was one] rag to the uncaring populace of Nottingham before retreating to your hovel where the smell of stale curry wafts from the other bedsits into your squalid hovel.

You are undoubtedly superior.

Can I ask the thread mods to hoof this thread into the naafi to prevent any further breaches of site rules.
Can I ask all posters to refrain from putting photos of site members on any thread. It is a contravention of personal security and therefore, site rules.
Meant to add, photos of octogenarian, noodle-armed idiots selling Socialist Worker News, puts me off my evening Sherry.

Ooh! Very amateur, Dorky_Shit. Let me "interpret" that for you:
"I'm sitting here in my pissed-in Y-fronts, thinking out ways I can further convince folks on ARRSE that I'm the king of the (engineering) world, as I've made them (hopefully) believe. Sound about right, shitlegs? :smile: :smile: :smile:

That’s interesting (and sensible) there, AdminVortex. And quite in-line with the sociology study that I mentioned in a previous post. You state that my posts are often “boastful” and “superior” without mentioning any quantifiable “evidence” for your postulation and without mentioning that I just post and the “recipient/reader” makes the corresponding judgement. Because you failed to provide any evidence of my “boastful and superior” posting, I conclude that you are also of that opinion. The question is why?

It would appear that even if I don’t consciously pitch my posts as “boastful” or “superior” (which I actually don’t), I’ve no influence at all over how any particular individual perceives what I write. And you, AdminVortex, seem to be one of those who give me far more weight than I actually deserve in that you automatically assume that I “must” be (allegedly) “superior” to you. Do we agree so far?

This is a question of self-awareness and my experience on ARRSE so far does not bode well to furthering that principle. I thought that you might be someone who’s a tad more aware, but I doubt it.

Let me come back to something you mentioned in your initial paragraph: “… it's natural for people to want to drop you a few pegs.” Now, just why do you think that would be, fella? What possible interest could other ARRSErs have in “dropping me a few pegs”? Just a question.

MsG
OK. Here's some examples. Your boasts of being para trained. Immortalised in your Arrsepedia entry. Your service in Afghanistan, also on your Arrsepedia entry. Yet you have confirmed You left in 1972. You disarming an armed policeman. Impressive stuff, ditto the mugger. I wish I could do that; I bow to your superiority and martial prowess. If it's true.

All very James Bond, especially your antics in SO36 which could have been lifted from an Ian Fleming novel, or some kind of film based on the books, even.

Your scores in the army IQ test? Higher than mine and most others, it appears. Although none of us can remember getting a score, even me, and I was looking to gain a commission for which I had the requisite qualifications.

That's off the top of my head, and let's face it, stuff that puts most of us in the shade.

Apart from the fact that nobody's seen a shred of evidence to support any of this, and quite a lot of the timeline is contradictory.

So, now's your chance. We'll start with your army service, as we'll be here for months if we try to unravel your complete anthology of fables.

Any documentary evidence you can provide (suitably redacted for PERSEC of course)? Discharge book? Any old comrades you served with? Regimental attachments?

I believe @cent05zr70 has connections with a 11H and RH to whom you claim to have been attached. I'm sure he'll know someone who knew you, and you did claim that attachment, because you were replying to me at the time.

The floor is yours.

@AdminVortex, I reckon he used the 11th and RH because they are long gone. But a lot of the 11th are alive and kicking, and meet up regularly. I can't think of any attached bogtrotters, but it was along time ago.

Here's his answer to me. Maybe you know some old and bold who can verify his bona fides? (I referred to his badge as a TRF; both that and the DZ flash are identical, the TRF having been developed from the DZ flash. TRF or DZ flash, he's still got it the sodding wrong way up on his Peter Stormtrooper jacket).

"Or not knowing the difference between a TRF and a DZ Flash, eh? By the way, I never wore one during my army time. I left a long time before they were introduced. The only flashes I ever wore were the 2 Div cross-keys and, occasionally, the "lazy H" of 11th Inf Bde (later 11th Armd Bde) when I was attached there. However, instead of just making assumptions about my DZ Flash, you might want to gather some info about it. The ARRSEr @Cutaway would be you man for that."
 
That second two litre bottle of Frosty Jacks has obviously calmed him down.
 
Indeed he was.

Later modified to he might have been there after the war as a visitor / supernumary when challenged.

He also trained with mujahadeen snipers in "ganners" using reloaded brass in a Dragunov

Possibly a Frosty Jack bottle being used for turps.

He would not notice the difference.

Those Berdan primers are tricky. ;-)
