    Hehe. Kind of close. My ancestors were predominantly French. In highschool, some people used that fact against me and used French bashing to indirectly bash me. Just a little touchy. But don’t worry no comments were against you.
    that makes no logic

    Haha... Used French rifle. Never fired, only dropped once.

    Joking aside, I dated a French girl for like 4-5 yrs. Probly shoulda stuck with that one...
    Just to let you all know, they really can be all like" oh the Americans this, oh the Americans that" But they are just as rude to each other, not any more so to us.
    Not really rude, just more upfront. Great Country though, I love it over there.

    Misfires happen all the time in any army. I guy I used to work with was an ordinance sargeant in the US Air Force during the Viet Nam Conflict. You'd be surprised on how often Sidewinder missles would misfire or bombs would fail to release. There aren't many things more nerve-wracking for a pilot then trying to land with an armed missle or 500 lbs bomb stuck under their wing or belly.

    Of course it was also amazing the correlation between how disrepectful a new pilot was to the ground crew to the number of misfires...
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I think the French missle clip was funny. I noticed they didn't wait around to find out if the warhead was a dud.

    Our M-16 had its own teething problems when the braniacs in the Pentagon decided it did not need the chamber chromed and they switched to ball powder. If you kept the weapon clean and didn't leave a round in the chamber overnight it worked fine. Otherwise........OH SHUGAR...or something like that.

    Of course it was also amazing the correlation between how disrepectful a new pilot was to the ground crew to the number of misfires...
    Don't get mad...get even. Hehehe!
