    [–] You could do so much with helmets Ubisoft temporarycreature 0 points ago in GhostRecon

    You guys keep making giant ridiculous blanket statements like all operators wear Peltor, or all of them wear this brand and that's not how it works. The military has standards and SOP. Can they wear those brands? Sure, but that has to come down from higher and has to meet all specifications. You're watching too much Hollywood product placements and judging by the ridiculous outfits they're putting in this game, Ubi is hitting the nail on the head since most of you like that shit and are whinging about your capes and masks.

    A lot of the Baltic states that Russia believes is rightfully theirs from the Soviet days are in NATO or want to be NATO, or it's the relationship is complicated.

    That's why Ukraine wanted in before Viktor Yanukovych ended those hopes, and now he's hiding in Russia wanted by Ukraine for high treason and in the meantime Russia hostilely invades Ukraine and grabs Crimea for the single strategic reason of now having a year round warm water port for their Navy to use.

    Prior they had a base in the arctic which freezes half the year, and another above the sea of Japan which they have to use Japan's waters to navigate out of and if you're trying to be sneaky sneaky and Japan is an ally to the US....

    I'm sorry dude, I don't think you know what you're talking about.

    The largest offense that tells me you don't know what you're talking about is saying that the Rangers are ranked higher than Special Forces.

    That is absolutely not true because you need to be an airborne qualified Ranger to be in the Special Forces because you pass through the schools on your way to be a Green Beret. CAG no longer exists and the name that the unit formerly known as Delta (CAG) is now code word classified. The SEALs are part of another branch and not related to Special Forces which is of the US Army. The SEALs belong to the US Navy. They are all commanded by SOCOM (United States Special Operations Command).

    Special Forces is Tier 1, the same as any group in the special forces community. Tier 1 does not denote skill, it denotes the funding level they have access too. The only thing higher is black budget stuff the likes of people like you and I will never know about.

    On top of that, the IR strobe I used was in 2007 and that was 12 years ago.

    Saying everyone in the SO community wears Peltors is like saying everyone who drives pick ups drives one brand. It's absurd. The US Army likely (still) has a contract with them still and that's the only reason why they are associated with the military.

    [–] You could do so much with helmets Ubisoft temporarycreature 0 points ago in GhostRecon

    Lol, everyone in the SO community most certainly does not wear Peltors. IR strobes are much smaller, smaller than the 9v battery it needs power from. These are for air support to see you. They are very powerful because they are LEDs. Radios do not use double A batteries. I am not sure where you're getting your info, but you're not correct a lot of things.

    You sound like the guy who called me into question on the GR discord and got told to sit down and be quiet by everyone there after he tried to call me out and I acquiesced to his skeptic-ness, showing him some proof and then he moved the goal post and called everyone salty because I met his bullshit with proof. Go get laid or something, punch a hole in a wall.

    There has to be something better for you to do than this because it's sad.

    No one is going to wear a hood with a cape in combat or even a mask. It's going to block your peripheral vision and that's what picks up movement better than your forward sight. It's going to dull your hearing as well. So much of the stuff in this game is a tacticool and not tactical.

    The helmets are unrealistic because it's going to fatigue your neck with all that crap on it.

    [–] You could do so much with helmets Ubisoft temporarycreature 3 points ago in GhostRecon

    No one wears this much shit on their helmet in real life. Nods are never worn on your helmet unless you're going to be using them. They're never just stored on top of the helmet. They go into a pouch on your rig.

    The headphones good in theory and protect your hearing, but we barely wore them in the gun trucks let alone on patrols and shit. No thanks.

    Not everyone carries a walkie and mics and headsets were for trucks or shooting ranges. These guys aren't James Bond in the FATA using gadgets to hear better. No soldier or operator is going to trust this shit over their own ears.

    Distress thing is real and probably carried by an officer, but not on a helmet like that. We have much smaller 9v battery operated IR beacons. Connect the battery and they strobe ultra bright in IR range so only NVD's can see them.

    In the military, if someone showed up wearing this shit, we'd call them a gear q\**r.*

    Some people like myself want the log to go with the FLAC to make sure it was ripped properly and not a transcode or similar. It's like a sign of good quality FLAC.

    [–] Fewer than 10% of Americans are buying $1,000 smartphones, report says temporarycreature 1 points ago in technology

    I still have my Pixel XL 2 and it has speaker issues now. I pay 5 bucks a month to google for device protection. As soon as I can afford my deductible, I'm going to get another Pixel XL 2 if they have any left. The last time I did this was for my Nexus 6P. They didn't have any left so they upgraded me to a refurbed Pixel 1 which I dropped off my motorcycle on the highway I guess. I had to buy the Pixel XL 2 financed and this month was the last month I owed a payment for it.

    This guy sounds like a political cartoon I saw sometime recent which depicts a crowd of people looking at Jesus on his cross with the 2 crosses next to him and two people in the back wearing GOP/ evangelical identification yelling, "He should have followed the law!"

    When I search I just string it like this: "Artist Album flac log" without the quotes.

    You have nothing to worry about. Obviously someone is trolling you for something. No one is ever going to contact you through SLSK for anything official. Not even Nir.

    Nikki* - I hope it's Ambrosia Kelley, but she hasn't done anything since 2012 likely because she would have been 17 and getting read to start higher education. She's 24 or so now. Perfect age to seek revenge.

    [–] Quentin Tarantino Teases 'Kill Bill 3' With Uma Thurman: 'Definitely in the Cards' temporarycreature 1 points ago in movies

    Quentin Tarantino has never made a proper sequel to one of his films, but he said in an interview Monday that there’s a chance we see a “Kill Bill 3” — and that could happen sooner than we think.

    On Andy Cohen’s radio show Monday, the “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” director said he recently had dinner with the Bride herself, “Kill Bill” star Uma Thurman, and said he has an idea for where she’d now be after all this time.

    “I do have an idea of what I would do with it. That was the whole thing was conquering that concept, exactly what’s happened to the Bride and what do I want to do,” Tarantino said. “Because I wouldn’t just want to come up with some cockamamie adventure. She doesn’t deserve that. The Bride has fought long and hard. But now I have an idea. I still wouldn’t do it for a little bit.

    As for an actual timeline, “It would be at least three years from now. But it is definitely in the cards,” he continued.

    “Kill Bill” was originally conceived as one film, but due to a run time of over four hours, it was was divided in two movies – “Kill Bill: Volume 1” and “Kill Bill: Volume 2,” released in 2003 and 2004 respectively.

    Tarantino clarified that in between when he wrote “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood” and actually filmed it, he took some time off and instead wrote a play and a five-episode TV series. So he says both of those projects would come before any plans for a third “Kill Bill” movie and that he’s mapped out his next three years.

    Of course, Tarantino has a lot of ideas for movies, sequels and the rest of it. But in comparison to some other auteurs, he’s actually been quite selective about the movies he takes on, and he’s repeatedly said in interviews that he envisions capping off his career after just 10 films. And for those keeping score at home, “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” is his ninth film. There’s also been rumblings of a Tarantino “Star Trek” script, and perhaps even more from “Django Unchained.” So we’ll keep a pin in any “Kill Bill” sequel for now.
