            ?? The US soldiers rarely eat MRE's unless in the field or in training. Talked to an uncle and a couple friends of the family whom were all ex-military and all reiterated how 90% of the time back at the base it was real, actual food made by actual cooks.

            Fuck off bug, Steve is literally the most honest person you could possibly meet. And I've personally had multiple Chinese MRE's of my own and all 4 of them were like tasting death in a bag. And it's hardly just Steve, but plenty of other MRE reviewers have noticed the absolutely 0 quality control of the Chinese MRE's. I have had MRE's from the US, Russia, Canada, Ukraine, Germany, the UK, Lithuania, Spain, Japan & China. China has been actually the ONLY nations' MRE's out of that list where I would literally prefer playing Russian Roulette than ever try another bite of Chinese shit ever again. Even Russia's MRE's were great, though that was 5 years ago so who knows the quality of them nowadays since we've been seeing expired rations from 2015 in Ukraine.

                Anonymous

                Is what true? The fact that most soldiers don't eat MRE's? Yes, absolutely. That's something hardly specific to the US; most armies in the world only eat MRE's while in the field or during training. Like 70% of a soldiers time is usually spent on base, and bases have cooks.

                And although China also copies this behavior, they seem to have completely fucked up the MRE part. They seem to only have MRE's BECAUSE all other militaries have MRE's. The Chinese love to bring food carts and shit even into the field, which in an actual conflict, these can easily be targeted and destroyed. Their MRE's have no quality control and are literally there just to exist and say, "Look, China strong just like everyone else, we have MRE's too!"

                An MRE and its predecessor the C rat are field rations
                You eat them in combat and you are only supposed to replace one meal a day with them

                Situations where you are forced to eat those are rare, as in cut off from support rare
                Usual food are A or B rations
                In WW2, this was regular food and canned food respectively
                Today, they have more options aside from just canned
                But MREs are actually quite pricey for their size and soldiers dont spend all their time fighting

            Dude the Chinese themselves admit that their MRE's are shit. They are working the kinks with MRE's but its not exactly a priority as of now as their military is a largely- with a few exceptions- domestic force. Meaning they can just get real food from wherever & have all the time to cook it. MRE's are usually only eaten by expeditionary units operating in far off overseas places.

            Hence the PLA tends to have loads of mobile kitchens like kitchen trucks, mobile stoves, and the airborne's airdroppable microwave. Not to mention literally all PLA soldiers can cook, as its part of their training.

                But I meant more like being able to do the basics of cooking, like boiling water, frying something without fucking it up, etc. Every capable adult should know how cook for themselves, frying an egg, frying a sausage, frying some vegetables, boiling pasta, peeling and boiling potatoes, boiling an egg, etc. Doesn't need to be fancy, just consistently edible (ergo not undercooked or burnt).

                Actually, school should probably teach this to begin with, then bootcamp can go through it just once or twice as a refresher and for team building.

                Worst sex I ever had was when I was out drinking with friends and got jumped by a trio of cougars, most likely because I had just grown a mustache and appeared to look older than I was.
                When I tried to escape I found out my friends had left to go to another bar because they had thought that my 2 minute long shooting-the-shit session with a bunch of horny 40-year-old divorcees meant I was aiming to score some vintage snatch.
                Ended up getting so drunk that I was basically strong-armed into a Chrysler Town and Country and ferried to the most attractive single mother's townhome (in retrospect, she was hideous, I found out later that I have severe astigmatism) since her 12-year-old daughter was having a sleepover somewhere.
                God that bitch smelled awful. Anyway I was so drunk, uncomfortable, and not aroused that once the outer layers had been stripped and she had starfished in that usual "I used to be adventurous but because of my lower back issues and multiple pregnancies I can no longer do anything but missionary and light doggy" position, I basically slapped her time-to-replace-the-brake-rotors pussy with my flaccid cock for around 90 seconds before I blamed my impotence on excess alcohol consumption and feigned sleep so I could sneak out and call a Lyft
                I still cringe thinking about it to this day

                She's calls out, "you not enough of a man for this pussy?".

                Condom, walk over, dick out, and slammed it out in 5 minutes. Walled back to a base gate. Got a cab to the lodge. Showered and went to bed. Next day I get in the shuttle from the base to the airport. Guam was there and says Hawaii tried to put it in her butt and got decked.

                Did you also notice that they're at bare tables, with proper cutouts for woks, but with no heat source? Believe it or not, having a large group of students cook food continuously throughout the day is a terrible way to teach cooking and simultaneously burn through thousands of dollars in food pumping out shit-meals at the hands of students.

        Steve1989 is a pretty popular MRE reviewer, you may know him as the buff guy with a mullet that says nice. Anyway this motherfucker has eaten everything from hardtack to a literal 1899 Boer War beef ration without any fuss. Also got possessed by the spirits of soldiers past after smoking some WW1 era cigs (pretty sure it was that war anyways). None of that fucked him up, obviously he stayed away from the blatantly botulism filled dangerous stuff but he still ate whatever bits of rations he could. ALL of the Chinese rations he received that were relatively fresh as far as that stuff goes made him physically ill, and supposedly smelled of formaldehyde. They must also be fans of the Dr. Seuss book Green Eggs and Ham if the color of the chicken is to be taken into account too.

      damn, I'll say a prayer for our boy steve. can't imagine the sadness i would feel if an MRE took him out.

        Worst sex I ever had was when I was out drinking with friends and got jumped by a trio of cougars, most likely because I had just grown a mustache and appeared to look older than I was.
        When I tried to escape I found out my friends had left to go to another bar because they had thought that my 2 minute long shooting-the-shit session with a bunch of horny 40-year-old divorcees meant I was aiming to score some vintage snatch.
        Ended up getting so drunk that I was basically strong-armed into a Chrysler Town and Country and ferried to the most attractive single mother's townhome (in retrospect, she was hideous, I found out later that I have severe astigmatism) since her 12-year-old daughter was having a sleepover somewhere.
        God that bitch smelled awful. Anyway I was so drunk, uncomfortable, and not aroused that once the outer layers had been stripped and she had starfished in that usual "I used to be adventurous but because of my lower back issues and multiple pregnancies I can no longer do anything but missionary and light doggy" position, I basically slapped her time-to-replace-the-brake-rotors pussy with my flaccid cock for around 90 seconds before I blamed my impotence on excess alcohol consumption and feigned sleep so I could sneak out and call a Lyft

              Surely he can't expect the reader to be familiar with worn out car parts and worn out lady parts in order to understand this reference or am I overthinking it?

                I find if people actually understand why these foods and added sugars are bad, they're more likely to change. Maybe instead of netflix make her watch a few of those
                Sugar and processed foods are quite literally addictive as well, so it may take some effort
                A good start would be having mostly healthy foods in the house, maybe get her to start doing some strength training
                If none of those things work, better luck on the next time I guess

I'd stick a shotgun in my mouth if not for immense emotional pain it would cause my family.

                18 fucking years of this. Had back surgery at 15, car accident at 19, been through every single bit of physical therapy, exercises, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, chiropractic stuff, etc that I really don't care about my weight anymore.

After I finally got her to leave she went around school and my small town telling everyone she had to break up with me because I was crazy and beat her and shit and basically ruined my reputation. She went to a hospital a couple weeks later and got an IV put in because she had low iron or something and it left a bruise on her arm and she went around telling people thats where I grabbed her to jerk her around

          No, I would say that the US Armed Forces is an excellent example of food logistics, balancing economy, shelf life, portability, and keeping up morale. People on base and vessels use kitchens and messes, which is perfectly fine, and people who go out on patrol and missions get portable food which is good.

          The fact that OP uses the PLA as an example of what the US should aim for is complete insanity, given that their field rations are completely pitiful.

    The research wasn't just specifically about the pizza (although it had been in strong demand for 30+ years). The research was valuable because if you can make something like a pizza into a shelf stable long life product that is still palatable after several years then it opens up all sorts of avenues for making other new tyes of MRE that weren't possible before.

    People love variety in their food and it's been proven time and time again that food can be one of the biggest boosters or breakers of morale, depending on variety and quality.

    The majority of chang troops suffer from Little Emperor syndrome. How well do you think their war machine will operate when they're feeding the troops rotten MREs?

    Because Pizza is good, and eating rotten pork is a good way to have a nice day accidentally.

    Comparing anything, even the moldiest maggot-infested shit, in the US military to the finest of the PLA's cutting-edge will still result in the US being objectively better.

    The PLA is the epitome of everything wrong with China.

    Cheap and poorly made equipment is valued over what is actually fucking effective.
    Human lives are treated as infinitely disposable, when it takes 16 years at the lowest to create a person that can fight in combat.
    Competence and intelligence are consistently passed up or punished in favor of blind loyalty or whoever has a dad with ties to the CCP.

    Even China knows they can't win a fucking war, despite how fucking asinine their diplomatic strategy is.
    For all their talk of invading Taiwan, fact is China can't do jack shit while the US is still a threat.

    China only has one ally: Russia. And Russia, is fucking incompetent and far weaker than what all the damn memes say.
    The USA, meanwhile, is allies with at least 75% of the countries that actually fucking matter.

    It would be WW2 all over again, with China taking the place of the Nazi's as the lone nation with useless allies fighting the entire world.
    No matter how powerful one nation is, picking a fight with the world is a bad fucking idea.

      If we're making comparisons to the Axis powers then China is most comparable to Italy.
      China is far more likely to drag their feet to declare war should a WW3 scenario happen, while Russia is already annexing smaller countries in our present day thus making Russia most comparable to Nazi Germany.

      When China finally does declare war they'll inevitably embarass themselves and subsequently enter some kind of civil war - which would be between a Xi Jinping faction and a Jiang Zemin faction - and then exit the global conflict entirely, or flip sides.

    chinese have the benefit of using field kitchens to serve personnel in the field like the wehrmacht did in WW2 because they are mostly geared for combat close to the mainland with short supply lines or for short but vigorous campaigns off coastal islands (or taiwan)
    so they have no real battle-need for an MRE, the ones you see that nearly killed steve are because they are just for show
    they are just there because a modern army is expected to have MREs

    the US experience across the 20th century was different, largely fighting overseas wars
    so their men would often get worn down with monotony from eating nothing but C rations for weeks
    so MREs have to be at least halfway edible if you are going to fight protracted campaigns with no easy access to field kitchens or are fighting arty-spamming enemies who will light up your field kitchens if they so much as make an egg fried rice

      So in other words, every single PLA unit has a glaring weakness ripe for attack in the event of a modern war against the US, I mean seriously how long do you think these field kitchens right up at the front will last if the enemy knows intrinsically that destroying them = starving the opps

    Real food is too great of a risk for the US. Grunt I know came back from his first go around with a massive, just hideous scar up his arm. I assumed the worst, knife-fight with a sand-moron, lightning strike, shrapnel, clearly something serious had made this massive, disgusting 15+ inch scar.

    So apparently he ended up at a base somewhere working in the kitchen, and one night he tossed a bag of trash with some kind of seafood/shellfish or something I don't know, bag tore and a piece of rotting bone/fish gave him a teeny scratch up the length of his arm. So he did absolutely nothing about it for several days, it got horrifically infected, and now he looks like someone tried to fucking debone his arm from wrist to bicep.

        later on, the americans switched to mechanical pencils while the soviets switched to a special type of dermatagraph to write on plastic tablets
        mechanical pencils didnt need sharpening and dermatagraphs use coiled-wood wrapping so can simply be peeled off in a single stroke

        and finally as stated above, both the US and the soviets use the space pen now

      Having much of field rations be made up of commercial foodstuffs procured at a low bulk cost is an economical way to have field rations.
      Not perfect, stuff like tinned foods tend to have excessive bulk and weight compared to a more professional modern MRE like what they give out in the US Army, so having a lot of that can be mildly obnoxious, but it's at least viable food. Some countries compromise and have a couple of tinned things like that in a daily ration to fill things out but then still have a meal you can prepare with some water and a heater (flameless or not).

      I don't think you understand the significance of MRE's and food preservation. They're not there to be some 5 star meal. The very fact that they are able to taste like lunchables is beyond amazing already. I'd like you to point out a lunchable or something from a school cafeteria that can be stored for 5 years and still be perfectly edible for that entire time. And likely will STILL be edible for at least a decade past that.

      I haven't gone as far back as Steve1989, but I've been able to eat some food components from the Korean war, Vietnam war & Gulf War that were perfectly fine. Food preservation is one of the most underrated techniques for supplying militaries. It's something that's been done for millennia to allow armies to be able to march further and further.

        Food science in general is one of those sciences like medicine where the past 100 years of advances are fucking mindblowing. Have an arm chopped off today, and there's very good chances they can reattach it so it can heal, if you have access to some basic 1st world medical care, but back in 1922, that shit was a non-starter, they could clean and seal the wound for you and that was that.

        MRE's is another of those technologies, a meal that tastes alright and which has the incredible shelf life that it does, or things like a small bag of dried and powdered vegetables turning into a whole pot of soup with some water and heat, or frozen lump heating up in a microwave into something that's actually pretty edible (be that your own homecooked leftover meal or a storebought ready made one), and this soup or other meal actually tastes pretty nice.

        A lot of this technology isn't even very new, it goes back a long time. It's like how the best rifles and pistols aren't actually very new, at most they're improved/"improved" takes on something that's 30, 40, 50, even 60 years old or more.

        the snacks are also important ways to cram calories in

        that's what I discovered when I tried to make a healthier, reduced-sugar version of an MRE menu. take out all the choccy bars and suddenly it looks quite a bit leaner

          Well if you're basically hiking all day you're actually putting those calories to use, so it makes sense to have them just as boosters.

        Exactly, the Romans had a basic ration, but it was augmented by camp followers. Sure they'd pay for it, but damn they'd but it. But let's go with a more recent idea, I'm going to bastardize it, but it proves a point. What would you rather have, cooked food or canned? Cooked, failing that you'll have canned.
        That was part of the logistical trains throughout modern wars, at least if you had a country that could do it. Hot, reasonably fresh food is preferable then something uncooked from the can.
        The MRE may not be truly revolutionary, since soldiers can and will heat their food from whatever means, but flameless heater is a god-send.
        Variety of food, which is warm and comforting is massively important, which many forget about.

          Eh, it's only true advantage is not having to lug those blue gas cans around, otherwise one of those mega-portable mini camp stoves are more efficient

          Only in garrison towns. Typically they were expected to cook it themselves. Mention is made of one of the emperors, I forget whom, cooking his own meals when in the field "like a common legionary"

    The PLA doesn't have the best MRE either. Maybe they've gotten better in recent years, idk.

    I dont know, why did the PLA break down into tears over being sent to fight poos in a border dispute while the us military spent 20 years getting mutilated fighting mudslimes in the desert and still had to be physically restrained to keep from continuing on indefinitely

    We are advanced enough that we have the time, energy and money to make MRE food that passes for our favorite comfort foods.

    Plus this shit is a morale boost.

    Because pizza is a trivial matter when you can also make an MRE Burger King
