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. Gremlin

    Gremlin LE Good Egg (charities)

  2. mmm..might be interesting..Ving Rhames is a bit of a tough bloke! :evil:
     
  3. Errrm.......but Kojak/Telly Savalas was an IC1 male, whereas Kojak/Ving Rhames is.......well.......not and IC1 male but decidedly IC2-ish............
    .........unless the cataracts are playing up again

    That was rather my point.

    I know Greeks have all year round suntans, but even so.......

    PC going mad in the Good Old US of A??
     
  5. Face it. That fellow is a black. Kojak was Greek. It's like recasting Hamlet as Venezuelan. Pointless.
     
  6. ... by the way, what's this IC1/2 stuff about?
     
  7. not a fan of "The Bill" then?
     
  8. ...errr, no; don't get to see too much of all that. Guess: IC1 = Normal white heterosexual vs. IC2 = black arrsebandit? This sort of crud sells television advertising time in the towns and shires nowadays, I suppose.

    Good thing I like birdwatching.

    The whole I/C thing is a "racial" categorisation system. The quote marks are intentional. There is no such thing as race unless you mean the human race. But, as a short-hand way of describing phenotypical characteristics it works very well. It goes from White to Black, via Asian, Mediterannean, and loads of other cul-de-sacs.

    The new Kojack would be I/C 3 if my memory serves.
