    Interesting, but obvious logic...

    The crowd started singing after the toddler's mother told them he was scared.

    Heartening to see amidst the tension, humanity still prevails.

    Good drills.

    To be fair, I've not seen many smiley selfies from that particular call-sign. Given the number of facial muscles required to frown, as compared to a smile I reckon the Ironman Bootneck needs to consider planting a few more trees.

    In reality doing this manually isn't too difficult given sufficient training and practice.
    The goats in the trailer I once rolled would disagree. RIP.

    An appropriate thread to mention that this forum's official Commando Challenge charity team was (once again) featured in a Facebook post by The Royal Marines Charity:

    Team Ninja's Worriers had its own 'embedded' photographer from Devon Air Ambulance Trust (joint beneficiary of the Commando Challenge) following the team in 2019, presumably because of the awesomely photogenic qualities of the team and the team's impressive grit and determination.

    Get involved. Look out for more information about the October 2020 event.

    @Chelonian Essex Badger and I have expressed our interest for the Commando Challenge. Any ideas how we get involved with the Ninja Worriers?

    I don't get time for computer sims etc but what on earth is this?



    I couldn't tell most of that was a flight sim through most of it. That's some next level software engineering right there.

    Dependent on one's internet bandwidth. My version would look more like Minecraft.

    Hi chaps,

    Saw this video on YouTube. Seen a fair few of these types of “tactical” videos. Pretty cool!

    Are these skills actually useful in a real life situation, or are they more for show?

    To make an Earth sandwich, you need two people at precise points on opposite sides of the globe.

    I rember seeing an interview of a pilot who taught himself to fly using Microsoft flight SIM and then ended up getting his license. Of course he had a fairly high tech simulation set up, but impressive to say the least.
