Marines really *do* have brass balls

Bored Marines doing typical Marine duty (i.e., lots of sitting and standing around being bored). Watch as one Marine, bored out of his skull, moves a metal detector wand over his body just to wand himself. Listen to the beeps as it encounters metal stuff like buttons and grenades. Listen to the beeps when it reaches his crotch area. Heh.

This is what it means to be a Marine 90%+ of the time, not the romantic shit on the television commercials. Methinks if Gordon of Alternate Brain fame came around, he'd be amused.

    Ah...the life of a Marine, when not being shot at.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
