    It actually happened...

    So I was playing pool in this proper classy joint and this creature walks up to me - looked like a meth fiend - and starts talking about special forces.

    Obviously he was ex SAS and just for good measure he was also shit-hot at Muay Thai; but when another dude asked him what gym he trained at he gave him a lengthy 1000 yard stare and said "I don't need a fucking gym."

    Was it Rick?

    Anyway, Fluke, I think he means he actually met one of these retards. I've met a couple as well - they really are funny, especially when you laugh in their faces and they get all mouthy. Then it's really funny.

    I had a guy tell me that he was an ex Royal Marine, When i asked him what he thought of the burrows and did he enjoy them he replied " I spent 2 days down one on exercise once". Mmm i thought, " cool " was my answer. The burrows i was refering to is a beach called Braunton burrows, it where they ( RM ) practice beach landings.

    The point is that this guy looked like he'd have trouble punching his way out of a wet paper bag and he's going around telling everyone he's Bravo 2 fucking Zero and a Lumpinee Stadium ledge.

    As anybody knows, the real SAS...The poms......and The Aussie and Kiwi ones too...would never say a word about what they did.

    I had a yank in a bar also tell me a similar story years ago. I just sad to him, "that's nice" and then ignored him.

    I think in my time overseas and in the UK I must have met every single one of those "supposedly" in the Regiment. I invariably play the same stupid Walter Mitty game and tell them, (in as conspiratorial manner as I can muster,) that I was in as well as a cook. Then relate on my ability to rustle up "pot au feu" under deep cover in Crossmaglen. Strangely enough some of these dreamers actually believe it.

    The seppos often claim they are a "Navy Seal", in which case you ask them "Can you balance a ball on your nose then"?

    Mostly too thick to even know you're taking the piss.

    Butterfly regularly balances balls on his nose...I guess, for some, that would be quite tough to do...

    Uh huh....
    Should that surprise anyone [missing the point]??

    Not to fret, Fluke.
    As you have lots of company here.
    Take heart in that.
