    Are you baiting? What's depicted there isn't plunging fire, but I like how they're wearing BDU's in spite of those being phased out in the mid-90's

        homie the US Army didn't fully retire BDUs until 2008 in POG units, active replacement with UCP didn't begin until 2005ish

        I wasn't referring to DBDU's

        I love this stupid line like you wouldn't believe. I don't know why it's stuck with me all these years, I find myself saying it randomly sometimes

          Yes, Black person, woodland BDUs weren't fully replaced until 2008-9. Frick guys in my ANG unit were still clinging to them until the last authorized day in 2011.

          How does pressure on the bolt face get translated almost instantly to the rotational energy required to unlock the bolt before it can start moving backwards?

                In the case of Starship Troopers it's because Verhoeven is an auteur director with a capital autism who grew up in occupied holland in the Hague which was the capital of dutch collaboration with the nazis (collaboration and collective guilt is a skeleton in the closet for germany and their occupied countries they never talk about) also experiencing the dutch late war famine. So obviously he adapted the source to make it mostly about fascism and what its like to be part of that society in a very unsubtle way because he's a fricking autist.

                Not everything is a woke conspiracy sometimes its just a kankermongol who loves boobies and blood-packs/squibs. Also his earlier WW2 film Solider of Orange is pretty good. It's also one of only like 4 films ever to use an actual DH Mosquito in flying condition.

                He's doesn't want to be thought of as an action movie director, he wants to be thought of as an artist, so he has to shoe horn in a political message into his otherwise good action movie. Basically a self hating Michael Bay.
