I haven't seen Banshee use her finishing manoeuvre yet. This seems to be a lightly applied submission hold.

Hey, I'll give anyone fair warning not to piss me off before I go for broke.

Doubt my advice will have much good, but at least I'm trying, right?

Can we say "Fear the Spear???"

"Hands"

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won't be made useless
I won't be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear
My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
Poverty stole your golden shoes
It didn't steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasn't ever after
We'll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what's right
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
I am never broken
In the end only kindness matters
In the end only kindness matters
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
We are never broken


Well everyone, this thread has gone so overwhelmingly off track that me posting Jewel lyrics could probably be justified.

She's also someone who whines as much about persecution as FM does.

Disclaimer: i do not like jewel, i never have and i never will and any injuries recieved whilst playing her songs is not my fault.

A recommendation was made that I post this publicly, so ...

(begin)
Y'know, I've been on the 'net for ... *thinks* ... almost 15 years now, and what I posted are the rules I try to follow when putting anything out in cyberspace. It makes me sick to see people who are probably 90lb nerds with glasses grow a set bigger than Alaska when they can hide behind a computer screen.
If FM wants to go on about the decline of society, he needs to realize that the biggest factor in that is the breakdown of communication between members of the human race.
Communication, not preaching or flaming or throwing threats from a keyboard.
(end)

Now, does that qualify for the lightly applied submission, or is more spear-ish?
-B.

I just wanted to clarify my position.

Just as soon as FM admitted he's a little snot-nosed 19 year old college kid who hasn't lived an ounce of a real life yet, I was able to find my happy place and disregard his repugnant statements on the basis that I have a 19 year old son myself...and stupid crap comes out of his mouth sometimes too. With that said...nothing that stupid though. Probably because he has a mom that will take the time to knock his teeth plumb across the room if he dared belch something that disgusting.

By the way, FM. Just to make a point, my son posts on this board. And he was on watching the crap you said to his mom. And he seems to have achieved a little higher level of manhood than you...in the same amount of years....and without climbing a mountain.

Now. Back to the main point of the thread. I hope Condi runs for pres RIGHT NOW. I'll vote twice for her. And then she'll work out how to set up the PROPER requirements so that women can fill support duties in the military and free good men to protect our freedoms.

Because - for instance on my situation - if you are to the point you are relying on a cryptologist that is holed up in an underground bunker - way behind your lines - to be the pivotal point in winning your battle or not - you've got a lot more to worry about than whether she could do 20 chin-ups.

...I have never seen a pic of Banshee...but for some strange reason reading DragonRiders reply gives me mental images of her, standing in the ring, with a crumpled opponent at her feet...flexing her trapezius muscles...and hissing a blood curdling


WHO'S NEXT!!!!!!


Peace,

Banshee

Personally I think that was more of a full nelson accompanied by a gentle line of enquiry for the referee.

It was very firm, and executed straight from the textbook, and certainly ought to have had the full attention of the other grappler, allowing little room to move or breathe.

But a spear would knock FreeMason into La-La land for six months...



* hoping I don't cross Banshee in a dark alley any time soon *

FM, you have been back for what? A week and have already gotten warnings and pissed off half the people? Dang, I been here for a long time with no warnings on the new board. Keyword new board, the older ones I won't comment on, lol.

So Banshee, what's your number? I have a nieghbor who won't turn down his d@*n Barry Manilow record even though I asked nicely, then demanded, then threatened to set fire to his apartment not putting the fact that his is above mine and if his catches on fire mine will to, so maybe you can talk to him.

Well,
You children should take your adolescent bickering to a chat room so others may return to the importance of the main topic.
After all we have a bunch of American Military women in a hostile fire zone. When one of them is picked off what do think will be the instinctual reaction of an american boy with a gun? Perhaps kill every freak'in Iraqi in sight!!!!!!!!
Remember accordind to Shrub, 'War is over'!!!
What about all the pregnant military women that will be unavailable for combat due to pregnancy, should a right wing christian government give them all abortion pills now so they can resume their duty,or bring them home to have babies for adoption, then return to fight?
I can not belive there are so many options of vital concern to our defense and culture here in this timely topic and all you genius' with your high credentials wish to do is bicker like 8th graders at recess. Take the personal out of this, go to Dear Abbey or Ann Landers or that right wing bitch Dr. Laura.
I am disappointed in you children

Go to your rooms, NOW,

TUT

A Woman Goes to War in a Man's World
Everyone jumped out of the vehicles and--because those chemical suits are oppressively hot in the desert heat--first stripped to their underwear before wiggling into them. Except for me. For the next three days I thought I would die from the mistake of putting my chemical suit on over my clothes because I didn't want to stand in my underwear in front of an entire infantry unit in broad daylight.

Good article tut
It brings to light many issues that must be considered.

If were going to talk about this subject, I have to point out one person who has done more than anyone else to hurt the cause of women in the military. Lynndie England.

Well odd you think I never shouldered a rifle...well I have sorry to disappoint you...actually I bet I've fired more powerful weapons than you....

In any case....I corrected myself on the SAS bit the fact your only argument was against a mistake I made is sad.

Secondly, We didn't win WW2 through any military Genius just proves you have NO clue about how combat is waged.

You can go run off and imagine some "super sniper" winning the day like in "Enemy at the Gates" based on a true story and the Sniper was a man...not a woman....lol

And yeah that sniper was really good, but the movie showed that the war was being fought around the sniper (totally true), not with the sniper.

The sniper's main roll is to strike mortally, hit critical points.

These critical points merely open up gaps for the Infantry or Armor to take advantage of, these gaps are not permanent.

The sniper is a small peice of Warfare.

Dragonrider, go back to whatever Military academy you came from....you obviously missed a lot.


The only question I have from this post is what threat to women pose to you. I mean "threat" in terms of ego and sense of self. No one is saying women are better or worse. Battle is no longer (and never was) just about brute strength. I don't understand where all this emotion came from that required you to poo poo women troops.
