>Shortly after the September 11 attacks, Driver joined the United States Marine Corps and was assigned to Weapons Company, 1st Battalion, 1st Marines as an 81mm mortar man. He served for two years and eight months before suffering an internal injury while mountain biking without a seat.

Just read the NPR transcript of the interview where he talks about it that's linked in the wiki article. Says he was riding down a hill and fell and hit a ditch and the handlebars broke his sternum. Not sure where the "no seat" thing came from but it's hilarious.
I liked the guy even before this. Haven't seen TFA yet because not paying for that piece of shit, but the amount of asshurt coming from his role must mean he did something right.
He's a top notch actor and a great guy, wish him everything good in the world. Can't believe I actually disliked him once.
>internal injury while mountain biking without a seat.
DRIVER: Yeah. I think, you know, here I was, PT-ing with another friend of mine. I didn't know anything about mountain biking. But, of course, your mindset at the time is, like, well, let's go to the highest mountain we can find...
DRIVER: And find the steepest drop-off. And then that's what we're going to do. That's going to be our exercise with these, you know, stupid bikes. And we did that. And then, like, you know, I hit a ditch. And the handlebars went into my chest and broke my sternum. I ate it, you know, kind of mid-way. Then you kind of, like, find a path and, like, hobble down and get in a car and, you know, drive to the hospital.
Dad phoned me while I was at Uni and told me "watch "While We're Young". I fought it because it's a post-2004 Ben Stiller movie, but I gave it a chance and he's fucking tits in it.
If I ever watch TFA, it'll literally only be because of him.
You never really realize how often people drop those words into normal conversation until you read it on a transcript. There was a radio station in my city that used to do a but where they'd count "you know's" from athlete interviews, and it was hilarious. At times nearly every other word out of their mouths would be "you know".
Yeah i liked him and Ray(?) and Allison Williams' bf who left the show. Dropped it a couple into season 2, seemed like it lost something or played like a parody of its fresh first season.
>JOINS THE MARINES AFTER 9/11 TO AVENGE AMERICA AND REKT SOME TOWELHEADS
>BECOMES AN ACTOR
>GIVES LITERALLY THE ONLY GOOD ACTING PERFORMANCE IN STAR WARS 7
IS THERE ANYTHING HE CANT DO?
The script is stellar. It's well directed. Ben and Naomi are very good, even what's her name. It's self reflexive, exploring the creative process of directing and ever shifting boundaries between reality, inspiration , and plagiarism. Pretty impressive little film.
Stiller and Baumbach's Greenberg is good as well.
>millions of obese people who can't even meet the physical requirements
>support and interest in joining military dwindling
>get discharged for injuries on a bike
How does the military even work anymore?
I don't know, but my brother joined the army over the summer and apparently they have very low standards for who they accept. One kid somehow smuggled drugs into basic and got expelled, another would constantly hit other cadets for fun then tried to kill himself. You think they'd really check these kids out before they join
are you guys fucking blind or something
you mean anal war vet :D:D:D:D:D:D:D
>mountain biking without a seat
Training for jewish gay producer's cock.
He's also great in This is Where I Leave You.
Shit on by critics, but I thought it was pretty good; nowadays they seem to shit on anything that's not a blockbuster, anyway. I also liked In the Heart of the Sea, and that was panned.
>get free housing, food and plenty of money
>get to taste whores from all around the world
>befriend the best bunch of people you ever will
>get to shoot a rifle and blow shit up
>looks good on CV
>only have to spend six month abroad doing shit nothing in the desert, maybe shoot a sand nigger if your lucky
What's not to like?
>Every time I speak I know exactly what I want to say, word for word, without normal tandem conversation breaks.
You have been typing too much, you need to get out and vocally interact with more people.
There's multiple scenes in Girls where they discuss his looks. There's one where Hannah says he has Dumbo ears. Then there's the scene in the boat with Ray where he says that they understand each other because they're both weird looking.
It's the confidence he has.
Confidence is attractive to people and Driver is the kind of guy that atleast talks like he knows what's up, he's also had more 'worldly' experience in his life than most people his age which is another attractive factor.
Yeah, that all makes sense. I kind of like it when actors are like this. It makes them seem more like real people who are just really good at carrying themselves. I think Daisy has some of that too, but she's more conventionally attractive than Adam is.
He probably has some distant Jewish ancestry, given his very mixed European ancestry. The jews allow some very select goyim into the fold so long as they have at least some jewish background. Of couse these goyim get higher privileges than the blacks and other slaves the jewish masters parade around.
Driver's background is convincingly not-Jewish. It's possible but more likely that he just got lucky.
>filled with Patriotic fervor
>sign up with the Marines so you can go blast you some Osamas
>train in the expectation that you'll be going to Afghanistan to get revenge
>one day your CO comes up to you and tells you you're actually going to Iraq to participate in a retarded boondoggle devised by neocon politicians who also happen to be former execs at defense contractors
You'd jump ship too, pussies
>enlisted in the Marine Corps back in 2009
>served for two years before premature arthritis wore away at the last of the cartilage in my feet, making even standing excruciatingly painful
>had to get corrective surgery, was discharged in 2011, never deployed despite enlisting for the sole purpose of going down range
>forever labeled a POG
I never thought I'd sympathize so heavily with an actor
Good for him for making the most of his situation
aggressive downhill / mountain biking pretty much requires you to stand on the pedals nonstop since you'd be getting slammed and jostled around too much if you stayed seated
you can also handle slams way better, your legs are like a natural suspension
Woah. Why wasn't there at least an scene that showed this? It would've probably made the character more popular and look less like an emo teenager. No need for a topless, just a scene with different clothing that let's you see he is a big guy.
While a mortar itself is an artillery piece, the 1st Marines are not an artillery regiment.
>Cucking yourself to the Government
Nuh Driver was smart, got his paycheck and got fit and had no chance of dying. I'm sorry that you're a dumb retard who think he's risking his life for an actual cause LOL
Why does every fucking marine have those inbred ears?
They probably got it wrong. It was probably a trial bike and they're just retarded.
The marines attract a lot of retards who fail at life. You have a bunch of other losers turn fascist and scream at you till you're a brainwashed moron who kills in the belief of """"""""""""""""serving your country"""""""""""""""" and protecing America's """"""""""""""""freedom"""""""""""""""".
>Decide to check the source
>So you enlisted in the Marines a few months after 9/11 and - or about a year after 9/11, after you graduated high school. And before your platoon was actually deployed, you broke your sternum in a mountain bike accident. So what was it like for you to have to leave for medical reasons before actually doing the work you'd enlisted to do?
>from injured sternum into motorbiking without a seat
Wikipedia does it again.
You think he must have had to push it back in after he was crouching in front of Rey?
Can you imagine what it must have been doing during that fight scene? every time he turned around it must have been whipping around in his draws, like a damp sausage.
He looks like a normal person in this photo instead of a spitting image puppet
>you now realize any durka durka might have spared us of the abomination that this movie came to be, or at least part of it
The mountain bike discharged into his anus.
Military. It's essentially a declaration that you've lost the game.
Think about it. The power of free will and you *still* settle for slavery. Wonderful, no?
From an early age, you're influenced by your environment. Your parents (or lack of), teachers (in some manner, shape or form) and other mentors can help steer your life in a direction, whichever direction that may actually be.
However, during all of this, if you're still alive and have most of your bodily functions, there are a whole world of opportunities available to you. Especially in this day and age of technological marvels and the wonders of the Internet to provide information (and, of course, misinformation.)
The military should not even be an option, at this point, because not only is there enough information to suggest that joining it is only for those who've allowed themselves to be brainwashed by a military-industrial complex keen on retaining what power they have left ... but there is also enough information available for people to make their own decisions on what they'd like to do, instead.
Still, people join. They wish to be broken down and remoulded in somebody else's image.
This is a sign of weakness. Of allowing one's self to be influenced and corrupted by those with power and ambition. Essentially, those who join the military are no-better than mindless sheep.
>tl;dr: Join the military? You're a faeces-flinging, irradiated, nuclear-powered rhesus monkey who enjoys others making decisions for you.
