THE ULTIMATE OVERLORD NEEDS NO DESCRIPTION, PUNY MORTALS!
miscommunication as a plot device makes me angry
if you just talked to each other but no
That’s kind of one of my litmus tests, especially for shows and movies. If a major plot arc could be solved by just grabbing three or four people at most, sitting them down around a table, and saying, “Okay, TALK,” I probably am going to groan at it.
"I didn’t think that—"
"No, you DIDN’T think, DID you." [immediately walks off because fuck reasonable characterisation]
Pony fanfiction does this ALL THE FUCKING TIME for some reason and I always get pissed off at it. There’s better ways to have Twilight and Fluttershy mad at each other than completely removing both of their abilities to have constructive conversation. Come on.
Some of the best alpine/woodland military camo is developed by the Swiss, but most of the rest of the world refuse to use it because it has pink and red splotches on it, making it look “unmanly.”
Honestly if you’d prefer to risk it for the sake of looking “manly” then you deserve to get shot.
"That couldn’t possibly work, Roman! Alpenflage is dumb and you’re dumb!”
DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT PLAY “WHERE’S WALDO” WITH THE SWISS
YOU WILL LOSE
This is fucking dumb as hell.
First off, those images don’t actually have anyone in them. You can zoom in and see for yourself. They’re low resolution images the OP took at a random forest. There are no other examples online. They circled something far enough away that you could never tell.
Lastly, that’s not how the pattern would work anyway. You’d still notice their silhouette, their helmet, and their gear unless it was some sort of ghillie suit (then it’s not even the same thing). That’s not to say the pattern doesn’t work but here’s the best example I could find.
If you notice, the pattern is designed for an autumn environment. It wouldn’t work elsewhere. That’s why other countries don’t use it. Not because it isn’t “masculine” or whatever bullshit Tumblr is trying to spin. That thing would be a bright bulls eye in Afghanistan.
Here’s an example of the camouflage we use (multicam):
Finally, other countries have in fact used splotches of red or shades of pink. The Nazis were the first to use one (it was called Leibermuster), which in turn became the foundation for the Swiss pattern shown above (Alpenflage/TAZ 83; you can tell by the name alone that it was designed with the Alps in mind, nowhere else). The Soviet Union and its successor states (Russia, Ukraine, etc.) have also used some really bizarre red camos.
At the end of the day, the Swiss changed the pattern to a more typical woodland green, brown, and black pattern in the ’90s (TAZ 90). So the whole argument is moot.
The only nation that services a red-coloured pattern is Oman and it’s stupid as fuck.
loitering is basically the illegal act of existing while not spending money
isn’t capitalism fun
It’s the illegal act of hanging out on someone’s private commercial property, taking up space that could be used by paying customers, with no intention of supporting their business. If you want to hang out and spend no money, do it on public property.
"B-BUT CAPITALISM BAD! STALIN! COMMUNISM! I DON’T WANT TO ACTUALLY WORK FOR A LIVING BECAUSE I SUCK AS A HUMAN!"
