    The ACLJ is a fucking joke. It makes me ashamed to share a country with them.

    Because you would be a fucking bad accountant if you couldn't write properly.

    And you'd be an unwashed scoundrel if you didn't know anything about literature.

    I can write well, I just can't compare and contrast the themes of cultural contexts in The Truman Show and Philadelphia, Here I Come

    You probably write pretty terribly. And if you don't, then you shouldn't mind English so much. I hate when engineering majors piss about having to take English classes when the vast majority write such fucking horrible papers that I can't believe they made it out of high school. They're the reason engineers get such a bad rap when it comes to writing skills.

    I write well enough to get a respectable mark in High School and that's all I care about.

    Eh, I guess I'm kinda keeping it going, but communicating properly and comparing abstract texts are not the same thing. Higher level english is not a requirement for effective communication.

    VC's belt is actually made from a timing belt.

    The buckle is a vernier pulley.

    So, the mechs thread, full of befuddlement as it is, got me to look up this MRAP system of light, mine-proofed vehicles.

    This one got hit by a large IED, and the entire crew survived. I can't help but wonder, though, if that giant red smear used to be a trrrrst.

    It's diesal.

    It's not naturally flammable you need to compress it hugely before it will do so. And it has that color.

    That green thing to the right of the tire at the edge of the pool is a fuel canister.

    I was inspired to read about tanks. Apparently the British Challenger 2 is the most reliable tank in operation in terms of survivability:
    In one encounter within the urban area a Challenger 2 came under attack from irregular forces with machine guns and rocket propelled grenades. The drivers sight was damaged and while attempting to back away under the commander's directions, the other sights were damaged and the tank threw its tracks entering a ditch. It was hit directly by eight rocket propelled grenades from close range and a MILAN anti-tank missile, and was under heavy small arms fire for hours. The crew survived remaining safe within the tank until the tank was recovered for repairs, the worst damage being to the sighting system. It was back in operation six hours later after the repairs. One Challenger 2 operating near Basra survived being hit by 70 RPGs in another incident.

    Apparently only one has ever been destroyed during an operation, and it was hit by another challenger 2 in a friendly fire incident.

    This is why I'm not a soldier or an EMT. I'd be puking every 5 steps in a combat/accident zone. That's assuming my dumbass didn't get picked off by a sniper.
