Falcon63 vs The Board

Recommended Posts

First off, how do I even know he really did all that stuff? I could've gotten a quote like that form a tell-it-all book and pasted it here. Secondly, being forced to go to war doesn't make you a great person. Obviously I respect anyone who fights for our country, but I respect the ones who CHOOSE to fight for our country more. And you can't give me that crap, as I actually attempted to join the military when I was 17, but after my knee surgery, they wouldn't let me. I CHOSE to try and fight for my country, and I wasn't allowed because of an injury. I respect all soldiers everywhere, and I think it's everyone's (men and women) duty to step up for our country. So obviously I DO respect soldiers, but hiding behind the confines of a keyboard, you can't tell who's lying. People accuse me of lying, I'm accusing him of lying. And lying about something like that is UNACCEPTABLE. That is complete and utter disrespect for the men and women fighting overseas.

:face:

Its all about credibility. I don't have to tell you how good your credibility is right now.

I was a safety in high school. Ol' number 23. That's right. Thought about playin' college but, you know, Uncle Sam had other ideas. Ended up in the Navy. But...ah, what the Hell. Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, chief. It was comin' back, from the island of Tinian to Laytee, just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in twelve minutes. Didn't see the first shark for about a half an hour. Tiger. Thirteen footer. You know how you know that when you're in the water, chief? You tell by lookin' from the dorsal to the tail. What we didn't know... was our bomb mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent. Huh huh. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, chief. The sharks come cruisin'. So we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know it's... kinda like ol' squares in battle like a, you see on a calendar, like the battle of Waterloo. And the idea was, the shark comes to the nearest man and that man, he'd start poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark would go away. Sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about a shark, he's got...lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'. Until he bites ya and those black eyes roll over white. And then, ah then you hear that terrible high pitch screamin' and the ocean turns red and spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin' they all come in and rip you to pieces.

Y'know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men! I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand! I don't know how many men, they averaged six an hour. On Thursday mornin' chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player, boson's mate. I thought he was asleep, reached over to wake him up. Bobbed up and down in the water, just like a kinda top. Up ended. Well... he'd been bitten in half below the waist. Noon the fifth day, Mr. Hooper, a Lockheed Ventura saw us, he swung in low and he saw us. He's a young pilot, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper, anyway he saw us and come in low. And three hours later a big fat PBY comes down and start to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened? Waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a lifejacket again. So, eleven hundred men went in the water, three hundred and sixteen men come out, the sharks took the rest, June the 29, 1945. Anyway, we delivered the bomb.

do people know this is a quote from a movie and are pretending to thank you for your service or not? I can't tell.. lol

So now criticizing Falcon = criticizing the troops? This is like the JI Politics Forum minus the rationality and circumspection.

No, lying about serving this country is a disgrace to every man and woman out there who are actually fighting for our country.

I can't imagine anyone thinking TS would even be allowed to tour the Intrepid.

I take it you were never a big fan of shark movies huh?? if i had to take a stab in the dark, it's because you too were a victim of those godless killing machines.

That's really messed up. Now I'm not gonna tell you about the time I CHOSE to go back into Cambodia to free those POW's even though Troutman told me not to. Coulda f*ckin' KILLED Murdoch for that.

Seriously, you're a piece of sh*t. Yeah, people give me crap about everything, but lying about being a war hero is absolutely unacceptable, and is far worse than anything I have ever said. I seriously can't fathom how you think that is funny or acceptable no matter how you look at it. I've just been f*cking around in this thread cause I'm bored, but that is way too over the line. My cousin and my brother are fighting overseas right now risking their lives for our freedom, and POS like you tarnish their entire image and what they stand for. This is personally offensive to me, and should be for anyone who has any sense of patriotism and nationalism.

Guys. I just broke my pinkie nail but Im mustering up enough strength and courage to make one more call before the end of the day. 99% of this board has no idea how difficult this truly is. Most of you would run crying to your mommies. When this day is through I will have accomplished more than any of you will in your entire life.

I wish the vaginas I've seen lately were as petite and well-maintained as the Intrepid.

Do you have any cousins that are archeologists? Or is it ok for me to tell about the time I found the Ark of the Covenant?

And I was afraid the thread had already reached its zenith.

You seriously think it's a joke, don't you? What's next, insulting the people that died in 9/11?

You're totally classless. This is one of the Heroes of Amity you're talking about. Though it might not have ended well for him, he helped save lives goddamnit. What if it was someone you knew killed in the waters around that small island town?
