The op is clearly a spastic and you must stop teasing him....


(We allowed to say spastic any more?)
Not sure, I know that the colloquial Spacker & Spaz are frowned upon, not sure about Spastic as it was used in polite society - and they used to have collection boxes shaped like spackers made out of glass fibre - I got my finger stuck in one once, looked a right spaz!

I may have mentioned before, that as a civilian, my opinion of the Military has been radically transformed by reading the posts on AARSE.
As ex-military, my opinion of civilians has been radically transformed by reading the posts on AARSE (sic).

You got your finger stuck in a fibre glass little boy wearing calipers?

This raises more questions than it answers.

In your own time...

That is interesting. As an ex-civvy, my opinion of civvies was radically transformed by joining the army...

Small world eh? :)
True, it's a small world in the Army. There people do things quickly and efficiently, without arguing.
Whereas in the bigger civilian world, everyone argues on and on about everything all the time.

So I can understand why joining the Army might soon make you disgusted with civvies.

You animadvert upon my slight misspelling of ARRSE. As a civilian, I find this profoundly reassuring.

Nothing to worry about, it was the hole round the back - the one the man in the mac used every Thursday before he went to empty his sack for the nice lady in the bank.

One has to be nice to career civilians on this site - you're the majority.

Of course. I appreciate the courtesy.

Are we the majority? Ruddy heck! Don't say that most people posting on here aren't actually military personnel. Or at the very least ex-military.

I mean, here I was thinking what an intellectual bunch of people I was conversing with, fine examples of our modern Military. And all the time - it was a phantasm - they're mostly civilians? Please dispel the hideous spectre you've conjured up.

Or, actually, don't bother. I suspected it all along. The high quality of the posts, made an all-military origin seem unlikely.

Not that I'm in any way disparaging the military, who exist for the essential purpose of defending our country against foreign foes, by shooting them or blowing them up. Not for engaging in chit-chat, like the Russian posters on here.

Heck - that makes me think - most posters on here aren't actually Russians are they?

As a civilian you are showing a clear lack of knowledge and understanding.

To answer the OP's question


alternately, in the words of Mr E Blackadder

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening tear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.
