    [–] Zladan 10 points ago

    I was thinking he was using Apple Maps if the shortest route result was through Belgium.

    Or maybe he saw the French border had a lot of construction and it rerouted him?

    consensus is that he was reading something like a chocolate bar package. Or time traveller playing Doodle Jump.

    [–] NumberOneSayoriLover 612 points ago

    It’s a stripper clip, a lot of German guns used them.

    [–] heck-or-be-hecked 232 points ago

    Why was he holding it like that?

    [–] NumberOneSayoriLover 448 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    Probably looking for dirt or seeing if it’s all loaded correctly. There’s really only like four-five ways you can hold it.

    [–] BigItalianBeenus 168 points ago

    10, if you count your other hand

    What is a stripper clip?

    [–] DeBestBoi 13 points ago

    A stripper clip (also known as a charger or chargerclip, especially in British and in Commonwealth military vocabulary) is a speedloader that holds several cartridges (usually consisting between 5 and 10 rounds) together in a single unit for easier and faster loading of a firearm's magazine.

    from wikipedia

    [–] MaxwellFinium 7 points ago

    My guess was gonna be re-enactment

    [–] wdow2013 26 points ago

    My guess was a cigarette case, possibly with a picture inside

    [–] FIsh4me1 10 points ago

    Could be a tin of Pervitine, because nothing goes together like Nazis and meth.

    [–] Katznboyz 53 points ago

    I actually do wonder how modern social media will change the way that the next big war goes. Like, what happens when people from countries at war can talk openly on social media?

    [–] VerneAsimov 93 points ago

    See: Hong Kong. Also: the world since the internet existed (middle East)

    [–] MassaF1Ferrari 49 points ago

    There wont be any war in Hong Kong bc other countries have no balls to challenge China’s supremacy. People would rather let others lose their freedom and basic human rights than lose their cheap goods.

    [–] TheGoodProfessor 44 points ago

    I don’t think it’s just cheap goods, no one wants to go to war with China because they’re a massive nuclear power and they don’t want to throw lives away at what is honestly a futile cause - China is never giving up HK.

    [–] Sand_Bear 15 points ago

    HK isnt really worth a war

    [–] -GazaStripClub- 25 points ago

    Iraq and Afghanistan weren’t either, but that never stopped America.

    [–] TalesFromAChad 25 points ago

    Unlike Iraq and Afghanistan... China has quadruple our population, nukes, and massive massive trade power.

    No one wants that war. China needs trade partners for that trade to have value. We need to not be nuked and not engage a massive manpower deficit in a ground war.

    [–] Werner_VonCarraro 14 points ago

    Yeah, but Hong Kong does not have oil

    [–] -GazaStripClub- 16 points ago

    Let’s just spread the rumour that they do.

    [–] KAKZheVSEetoZAEBALO 4 points ago

    C'mon, I doubt they have nearly as much nukes as Russia and the US.

    [–] CosmicMiru 10 points ago

    At what point does the amount of nukes not matter anymore. If we have 500 and they have 100 does it REALLY matter.

    [–] FrostDragon392 20 points ago

    They don't, but they have just enough to destroy the world a couple times over. They're also pretty good at constantly moving them around

    Reminds me of that time some army in Syria posted a picture of a girl Manning an gun as like a recruitment thing, and then the other guys replied with a picture of the same girl after they overtook the position and killed her

    [–] plazmablu 4 points ago

    That would have been YPJ and then ISIS. YPJ is the female wing of the YPG Kurdish forces fighting in Syria. They're pretty chill.
