Do people at the army really do this when engaging combat, though?
It's my understanding that fucking around is 70% of what the military does.
What is the acceptable /a/4chan laughter nowadays? Or do you guys just not laugh at all? Too shy? Too edgy?
I'm genuinely curious what it is, since I don't much pay attention to this pettiness.
>be chair force
>go to nonner offices like Finance or Personnel
>airmen shooting at each other with nerf guns
Pretty much this. A lot of the time your worst enemy is boredom, not gooks or ragheads or whatever is the hot new threat to the West.
I don't know if it's still a thing, but /ak/ threads used to be pretty common and hilarious.
I can never remember what I named these
Is being a ranger such a big deal in the army?
This is all I can give you.
It's too real. This is why nobody likes supply troops.
>you will never massacre medieval forces with modern technology and take their elves and monster girls
>not massacring the elves as well
Don't tell me you're one of those pointy-eared lovin' species mixers.
Nah, elves are simply for rape and disposal.
You have no Idea how fucking boring it gets.
9 Line Medevac,
Messages for a medevac request so the recipient of the request knows what's up and how to respond to them on based on several factors.
>Marine Recon: Follows snake, gets lost.
>Yes, this is what I wanna ask you
Yes, obviously. It's literally the first google result that isn't about the actual composition and one of the most pervasive pieces of pop culture period.
I'm struggling to think of something that could reference that scene but hasn't.
Fucking thank you Rory for shutting up that stuck up reporter bitch.
Life in the army is basically long periods of boredom punctuated by brief moments of terror/action.
I'm a reservist combat medic for the Singapore Armed Forces.
The bitch fucking deserved it, she was going to use a little girl's grief to make a political point.
Everything just feels so weird and different from my usual teenage characters that its both a fresh air and... an uncomforting surprise.
Reminds me of that video someone recorded of a room inspection where they had posters and H-figs prominently displayed everywhere and the officer was fucking speechless.
Wish I could find it.
They basically want people to protect them against imaginary threats, even though as >>133795500
said it's not likely because Singapore is good friends with the US and China. The only people who might even attack them is Malaysia and that's hardly likely.
Sounds like you guys at the army know how to have a pretty good time.
Too bad it requires actually being in the army though.
Nah i was an MP at Polk. The guy was being very quiet and avoiding people. Walked in with Top and the CO to.a room full of lewd body pillows and multiple racks of non to lewd dolls and figs. Top made me explain what the hell he was looking at and sent him in for a 5th floor appointment. Top was very confused by the body pillows and titty mouse pad
If military life had that side action then it wouldn't be a bad idea to sign up. But I am almost 98% sure that it will never happen if I do go Basic Training.
I'm from Malaysia and I can assure you that we have no dream of attacking Singapore. There's a shit load of money to be made just by working with them. The only thing we don't like about Singaporeans is just about how stingy (kiasu) they are
We have the most retarded system in the world dude. Even SK which is still in a war allows their pre-enlistees to defer conscription but we can't.
The only threat is probably Indonesia but if anything I can't think of any other reason other than to drill the "don't speak up and take the shit" mentality of the military into all men to make us subservient as fuck.
Don't forget how thousands of Malaysians cross over into Singapore for work every day.
How the hell did you confuse my cap for an Army one then? That's clearly ABU.
My first sergeant saw my room and all he could say is how clean I kept it. AF is full of nerds so they just see it as another airman's hobbies.
>The only threat is probably Indonesia
I always get the impression that Indonesians are too busy being just fucking enraged at the chinese to really hurt anyone other than themselves, so y'all are probably fine.
Reopened it and made it larger, its indeed abu. I was lazy. But yeah this guy even had matching sheets and a rug of some polkaloid character. Its funny because my WO-2 had strike witch keychains
70% of our population are (ethnic) chinese and most of the government too though. But yeah a white christmas in Singapore would be more likely than military conflict with anyone.
Singapore is 80% chinese, we're all stingy bastards, it's practically passed down from birth. My dad was from Malaysia and he's one of the most giving people I know compared to my mom, who's a penny pinching harpy.
The problem with Indonesia is that they have shit for a navy and there's hundreds of km of ocean between us and them. So the actual ground forces have no way of getting to them.
Malaysia is the only country which could conceivably engage Singapore in a ground war and as you and >>133795790 have said, there's no point in that.
So... the conscription is just a load of bullshit.
They have an actual communist dictatorship up north and they can still defer their enlistment.
Anyway, to keep this relevant, the scene where Heidegger goes "Even I, who was in the Marine Force Recon, can't fight them" is much less retarded in the LN.
Basically the anime and manga does not convey the fact that the CIA, MSS and CBS teams are going in without night vision goggles while the Japanese SFG are not only present in force but they have Land Warrior-grade C3 gear and are fighting on home ground. They opened up on the agent teams from all sides and all the agents could do was take cover and die.
Oh that old grizzly bastard was full of questions.
>Specialist what... whats with these little toy things?
>Why are their eyes so damn big?
>They cost HOW much?
>Dont you abd your platoon watch this stuff?
>Hes a weeabo? A weeawhat?
>Why the the hell is the catwoman thing on the pillow naked?!
I'm pretty sure that is anyone attacked Singapore, Malaysia would jump in on Singapore's side cause we know that if Singapore stops trading with us, then our economy will lose one of our more important trading partners.
Be rest assured Singaporeans, should anyone come, we'll be sending in our USSR age ships and submarines that can't dive to help you
It's not too bad, just really monotonous. I'm actually thinking of cross training into comm or something. I guess you could say I'm into 3D, but my love for 2D is too superior for me to actually make any effort. How's McGuire?
OH YEA I WOULD ENTER HER GATE IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN
Heh, meanwhile my room got fully inspected by a female E-6 and all she really commented on was my gaymen PC, she thought the figures looked nice, especially the ones in kimonos.
I actually have a waifu so I never think about getting any strange, military or civilian.
McGuire is not bad at all for a stateside base, it just kinda sucks since the base is so damn huge that you forget you're out in the boonies, and that to see anything outside the wire you have to travel a good distance.
>You interrupt Rory's needs
What squad would this situation be more befitting to?
Weren't Roman legionaries basically part time combat engineers with all the digging and shit they did. I think it was Caesar who said "the spade is brother to the sword".
This is just a straight up clusterfuck, so probably Philippine police.
Now that I think about it, if you could train military soldiers in construction, you would really have a large force that you could use for large infrastructure work projects.
" The policemen attempted for nearly an hour to enter the bus, first by breaking its Plexi glass windows with sledgehammers, pulling the door with a rope attached to a police vehicle but it snapped. After running out of choices, they threw two canisters of tear gas inside and Mendoza stepped out of the bus."
"By that time, however, four more hostages were confirmed dead, while only six hostages were confirmed alive and not seriously injured."
You would a demigoddess too?
>Police officer gets dismissed
>Hijacks a bus and takes hostages
>Wants a fair trial in return for hostages
>You will never discuss cute girls with your waifu
Jesus fuck. ;_;
I think the best part is that the president actually wrote a pardon for him and they were delivering it, but they got caught in a traffic jam and by then the shooting started.
Would your waifu be bighearted enough to discuss cute girls with you?
Would she work with you to pull one in for a threesome?
Rory is... interesting. She's a nice person who is still very dark (she would have fucked up 3rd Recon if she thought they kidnapped the kids) and she's basically a MILF in a loli body.
I figure that earns her best girl spot over the somewhat more generic Lelei and Tuka.
Not to mention the fact that the guy in charge had access to these guys https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_Action_Force but refused to deploy them and instead used local SWAT.
I think the funniest part was that they tried to use his brother to negotiate, then when his brother has the hostage taker's full attention they ARREST him in front of the guy with an assault rifle pointed at the hostages.
Good thing I don't value purity, then. Imagine what kind of semen demon techniques she's mastered over the years.
Damn that sounds like it sucks. I've never been based stateside so I'm not sure what that's like. I was stationed at Misawa for two years, then Kadena for two years, and now Aviano.
Who's your waifu?
>two bases in Japan
You have no idea how much jealousy I'm burning with. I still hold out for going to Yokota someday.
Pic related. Go ahead and laugh at my mosquito wings.
Though Persia and Mamina (catgirl and warrior bunny) are close seconds, they probably have amazonian sex powers.
I was the lone Keinon in the /m/ Muv Luv threads some months back.
The clear answer is obviously Lelei
Welp, now I've got to listen to the tortilla chips OP again.
Oh shit, you were from Singapore, right? It's been ages man.
MEPS reject detected. Go ahead and scream welfare queen, you'll feel better about your inadequacy.
I shall laugh, and heartily.
Just kidding anon, you'll get there someday. Have faith. It was the best 4 years of my life. I wanna go back so badly.
She's not moe at all, she looks like a delinquent.. and skinny/tomboyish.
Well, fine, somewhat moe.
>all those megucas
I approve, Sergeant Snuffy. Everyone tells me I should do Korea first so I can get BOP anywhere, and then getting Yokota would be cake.
>I didn't know you were military, good luck with Yui.
Been in for a while now, been doing great since then.
He certainly does a lot better than most missileers, they always get into trouble because there's fucking nothing to do at those missile bases.
I'm so sorry airman.
There would be some other right-wing islamist shithead stirring up trouble.
It's funny, real Caliphates used to employ slaves as their military forces because devout muslims used to be opposed to killing.
How times change.
From what I heard Singapore depend on fresh water from Malaysia so much that if Malaysia somehow decide to embargo it Singapore will declare war. Of course that scenario is very unlikely.
>real Caliphates used to employ slaves as their military forces because devout muslims used to be opposed to killing.
Because keeping slaves is totally moral,right?
The thing is that Saddam was a brutal dictator who nevertheless managed to subdue all the other fuckheads in his region, like how a crime boss kept all his rivals in line. So when you take out the boss, all the suppressed rivals start jockeying for power and things get worse for the common people than when the boss was still around.
There might have been a Caliphate but it would be someone else's problem.
Yeah, Singapore imports ricockulous amounts of raw water at a ridiculously low price (3 cents per 1000 gallons) and sells it back after treatment at nearly 20x the price (50 cents per gallon). Malaysia's been making a lot of noise about it so there's been significant efforts to build more desalination plants so we can stop being dependent on Malaysia for water.
>Because keeping slaves is totally moral,right?
In the Axial Age and right after? They thought it was, yeah, just like the Romans and Greeks and everyone else on the planet Earth. Learn to read, and then go read some history, son.
Sadam was a secular dictator, yeah, that was his one good point.
Malaysian politics doesn't work that way. Fucking PM is too corrupt and should get fucked in the ass
IIRC, Malaysia simply doesn't have the tech or the training to do it. Singapore basically bears all the costs of building pumphouses and pipelines and maintaining everything and all Malaysia needs to do is have a place to put the treated water we send back. They're not dependent on us the way we are on them, but it helps.
Just because they thought it was,doesn't mean they where not retarded for thinking it was morally justifiable.
>Learn to read, and then go read some history, son
I hope you get beheaded by a shitskin.
I'm a civil engineer and I can assure you that we have the people and technology to build whatever water treatment facilities we need. Problem is that the government isn't really interested in doing so as some politicians are getting paid to keep their mouths shut
Please proceed to go die in the fire that you will be trying to throw books into.
Some were, some weren't. The ones who got worked to death in the silver mines probably were not treated well. Acquiring more of those in particular were what fueled the Roman war machine.
It's likely that many of the Caliphate slaves were treated as employees, because they were heavily armed.
It's a really odd historical intersection -- usually a mercenary army is not stable over the long term.
Corruption, the bane of Malaysia. How's them 2.6bn donations treating you?
Makes sense, I think the higher-class slaves (who taught the kids, or who were majordomos to freemen) would have qualified.
When you say Caliphate slaves, do you mean Janissaries? IIRC the Janissaries were basically slave soldiers run by the Turk Muslims.
Wait, it ended... in such a cliffhanger? Will there be more? There will, right?
I mean the Dark Elf girl still has to get Itami to do her request and all.
If it wasn't for the insane corruption in this country I wouldn't mind staying here. All I want to do is immigrate somewhere else where I can watch my anime and buyfag in peace
I'd recommend it, though I've heard that lately they're denying peoples' BOP over there. There are apparently people who've been there for a year and are now being sent back to the states.
Also thank you, I ate meguca shit right the fuck up after it came out, and again when they were promoting the movie. They had posters, figure lottos, you name it. It was glorious.
>When you say Caliphate slaves, do you mean Janissaries? IIRC the Janissaries were basically slave soldiers run by the Turk Muslims.
That's a good example, yeah.
Your intellectual failings become more evident as your impotent rage exposes itself like a flasher at the business end of a firing range.
Another cour is coming. Maybe more after that, but it's not announced yet. 3rd cour depends on sales I'd guess.
Least it's more visible than marine fall marpat ranks.
first sergean-"IT'S MASTERGUNNERY SGT TO YOU, YOU FUCKIN' TRACKIN?"
no because I still can't see your fucking rank faglord.
>ain't half bad
high /k/ content, low /pol/
No doubt. Going by what you said, you were over there when it aired and became a success. Again, words can't describe how jelly I am. CONUS is nice and familiar but I would have preferred the West Coast if I had to stay within the States.
>So how would GATE be like if you replaced the Nips with the Americans instead?
Probably not much different, with the exception of a proxy army being set up to destabilize the empire. Also they'd have m14's or FAL's or something instead of the typewhatever.
I love how we joke about hymen regenerating and artist went straight with that.
If you wear any uniform besides marine or if you're not a corpsman they tend to not care.
Even if you're a corpsman, if you're blueside, grunts and admin tend to not give fucks.
Being a blueside corpsman, I don't get as much love as the greenside guys. Though I get a comfortable room and less bs.
Okinawa is shit. Island is beautiful and enjoyable, the commands are terrible.
Masterguns are some of the coolest guys I have the graces of helping. It was just that one guy though. Usually it's
first sergeants and sergeant majors because they have inferiority complexes or some shit about not being field SNCOs.
Certain /pol/ shitpost keywords are now filtered to "kek", and this makes certain shitposters upset.
Don't let it worry you.

When i did my military service in the galpon where we slept there was a 2 meter tall Sena poster, the Sergeant in charge of our group told us that if someone tries to remove it he was gonna rain hell on all of us
Cool I'm not alone in displaying figures in my barracks room
Yao is some kind of helpless retard moe. It's okay but not best girl material. In the manga she's currently being forced to make a choice, so maybe she'll become best girl in the future, but right now she's just not.
>When i did my military service in the galpon where we slept there was a 2 meter tall Sena poster, the Sergeant in charge of our group told us that if someone tries to remove it he was gonna rain hell on all of us
Should have replaced it with Yozora poster.
Well they'd be bombing more people and then start drilling for oil
Destroy the empire, which would then crumble and result in a long lasting civil war when the Americans sell the residents guns and ammo for more drilling rites. All this while, residents from the empire slowly sneak into the US and start suicide bombing them. Republican go on about how it is their duty to spread Christianity to the non-believers even if they have to strap bibles to bombs, and that the empire hates the US because of freedom and how superior the US is. Democrats say war is unjust but can't come up with an idea on a better one. Trump says the US should destroy the gate and deport all of them to Mexico, he even proposes to build a wall around the gate made of steel 5 feet thick. Hillary listens to what students at universities around the country are saying and copies them. Bernie is the only one with any logical plan but nobody listens to him as he's a commie socialist. In the end Ben Carson becomes president because he kept saying that Jesus will return to Earth through the gate.
>imagines Rory's fate
>immediately thinks of rape
Sasuga dark elf.
Didn't the Japanese put a concrete dome around the gate and surround it in layers of checkpoints?
The manga doesn't shy away from showing gore but it still omits a bit of stuff from the LN.
Overall? I agree. But the anime is fun too.
>Trump says the US should destroy the gate and deport all of them to Mexico, he even proposes to build a wall around the gate made of steel 5 feet thick.

It was definitely a good time. Went to Tokyo three or four times while I was there and went to Akiba each time. I don't want to know how much money I blew each time I went there...
Also, like >>133800545 said, when I was stationed at Kadena I loved the island and the people, but the base itself was gigantic, always super busy, and generally just a huge hassle and a headache to navigate every day. I'd go back in a heartbeat, though.
Especially for CoCo's curry. I miss it every single goddamn day, it kills me.
I remember the struggle of displaying shit in my room when I was in the barracks. So many limitations on what you can do. Thankfully I have an apartment now and the place is 9000% weab. I never have anyone other than a couple guys who are almost as weab as I am.
>Can't hate an elf who handles assault rifles.
I... I like the anime designs a lot more.
Actually, it's what put me off buying the second volume of the GATE manga after I bought the first volume when the anime just started airing.
Animu Yanagida looks too fabulous and not cynical enough. 3/10, would neither scheme with nor bromance.
They raped Persia and Mamina. Damn heretics!
All the girls in general look softer and less threatening. I think it's a net loss because the fact that the girls were strong independent womyn in looks made them more attractive.
I hope she wears no pantsu and grants the faithful a glimpse of heaven between her thighs.
>I hope she wears no pantsu and grants the faithful a glimpse of heaven between her thighs.
Not sure if Emory would be heaven or somewhere lower, but you have a solid idea for keeping the faith alive.
I doubt it, although there are a lot of them and some are nutjobs.
Nah that more accurately describes boot camp. It fucking sucks while you're in there, but you only ever remember the good stuff.
>tfw you remember all those times one of your buddies would get destroyed by an instructor
>tfw struggling not to laugh during routine ass-chewings
>tfw feeling invincible when doing running cadences
>tfw graduation day with your new brothers, hugging and crying with each other, because WE made it, not just you
The days when your biggest concern was whether you'd pass your inspections are nostalgic as fuck to look back on, really.
>tfw the anime will only show Gizzele for one episode. And she will have the horrible anime redesign.
Even the most gruelling shit work like digging trenches becomes easier in a group.
I'm sure she needs help replenishing all the dragons who got killed, I volunter to help her breed them.
I don't particularly like their anime designs.
Hot damn, I'd go broke. How'd you pull off getting it all back in one piece?
Also, keep getting lost on kadena.
I can't tell you how many times I would run into the latrine because I'd die of laughter at one of my buddies getting yelled at for having a crappy wall locker or something he wasn't supposed to have in there.
You eventually learn to control it when you're out of the dorm/barracks though, because if yelling doesn't work, they'll just put you on your face, see if you laugh again after that. Pic related.
>Everyone in Singapore goes through some sort of military camp
You do realize that's completely pointless for a micro nation like Singapore, right? Any country nowadays can bombard Singapore into the ground from hundreds if not thousands of kilometers away with long range rockets, there's absolutely no need for anyone to risk their troops invading Singapore.
Despite its faults, I'm still looking forward to the second season.
this would be good if the mc wasn't such a goddamn gary stu
and if the anime followed the manga's tone more
in the anime it seems to lean much more heavily on the "japan is great and can do no harm" while the manga is like "yeah protecting the people is good and all but really we just want their oil and shit"
