Working on Christmas DAY!??!?? You should be throwing one hell of a party or drinking NOG or somethin not going to work.
Ahh thankyou Mr.Tinkles..I knew someone atleast would understand me.
i don't want to read through this whole thread but I heard that the mark above his left eye was from a solider who socked him when he was being arrested. Saddam spit in his face and called him an 'infidel' so the solider cocked back and laid him out. I guess Saddam was cuffed already and went flying on his ass.
The mark above Saddam's left eye is from a US solider. While they were arresting him, he spit in the face of a US solider and called him an infidel. The solider cocked back and socked Saddam. Saddam was cuffed at the time so he went flying.
~AzH~i'll say one thing for Bush. he sure knows how to play to an audience. now, you have to think of this 'War' as it is seen by the vast majority of the world's population - a T.V. show: "Quick! Switch on CNN! Someones gonna get their ass kicked!" "Wow! Look at that one go! Boom!" this is Popular Culture used for Political Advantages.
this whole War on Iraq has been sanitised to enable it to be viewed before the watershed. it is mass media at it's best. nothing more, to billions watching, than entertainment.[/QUOTE]
remember this? well you can witness gung-ho hollywood goes to war propaganda style bullshit right here on gamingforums!! w00t! seems like this war has been sanitised to the level that some kids think those brave men and women who go out there to fight for freedom are gonna be playing a fucking video game:
Go kick some Iraqi Ass!!!!
Give Osama his guns back....1 bullet at a time.....
God be with you! Good luck, and come back here when you get back! I wana hear about every terrorist a-hole you emptied your clip into!!!
[QUOTE=]Good Luck and remember: NEVER, and I mean NEVER use a grenade when your Allies are around. Only use them to soften up those Terrorists. Go shoot some for me!
this is the kind of thing i'm talking about. am i the only one who thinks it is fucked up when today's kiddies are talking about real life situations like they would a game of BF1942 or Call of Duty?

It is always a problem when people (young as well as old) cannot distinguish between real life and fiction. However, you will always fiond some people who talk of war as if it simply was a FPS game.
I agree with Dreadnought wholeheartedly. Certain people think that war is just another "battlefield1942" or a "desert combat"...Well it's not. They think that because they aren't affected by the war. They most likely don't know anyone serving in Iraq, or have known anyone affected by a war. If their son, father, daughter, mother, brother, sister, or cousin was killed or wounded they would think differently. If they would just go visit a military hospital or visit some of the families, they might understand, but they do not. Most people who make comments like that have never been in a warzone or have no personal first hand knowledge of anyone affected by a war.
True. Reality is quite different from the game world. Perhaps these people might serve best in a war zone. It has been studied that people who always did well in war, were usually those far removed from reality. This was the case because the heart beat of the average person in front line conflict, has been known to rise to ~320~ beats per minute. Until I learned this fact I had no idea the human heart could go far beyond the 200 beats per minute range. If you, or I, had a heart beat that high, if we were to fire a rifle we could not hit the side of a ship fom a hundred yards. So the average person, in reality, is quite useless in a frontline type situation. If however, you were removed from the reality of the situation, your heartbeat would lower and you would fair better. Ever notice how in some war movies, the hero was always a little bit of a nutter? At least they got that bit right.
Oh, BTW, when your heatbeat gets into the extreme range, it's quite common to loose control of bodily functions. Not uncommon for guys to be laying in piles of faeces whilst fighting.
These studies were done by the U.S. army psychologist teams in WW II.
isnt' a person with 320 beats per minute in danger of dying?
