    That's just evasion. Why do you not tell us where you got the moves from?

    Phil:
    Because I enjoy watching trolls like you obsess.

    KC:
    You still haven't answered what is a perfectly reasonable question. Come on, fess up; you've made these moves that you are selling up yourself?

    Phil:
    At such time as you magically transform into a reasonable person, I might answer you. Until then, the question will remain unanswered until someone other than a childish troll asks it.

    If you say so. I don't remember CNN saying anything explicitly negative. Hell, come to think of it, I can't remember *any* troop-bashing in any American news source.

    The same could be stated of the Bullshido website with it's group of nutburgers. Besides, have you seen some of the flashing ad's running here at this site? Is it neccessarily a reflection of Phrost and his views what sort of ads are featured at his website? Clearly, not. Therefore, it is more than a bit hypocritical to lambast the SOF if you're not willing to do the same for Bullshido. :eusa_naug

    You may have a point there. The one thing I'd say is that Phrost has less control over the ads that are published than SoF does since Phrost has to act through the google ads thingie.

    But if it makes you feel better I can amend my statement. "Soldier of Fortune rocks! Let's join hands, dance in a circle, and play more multiplayer SoF II!"

    Paladin's a mixed bag. They've got good stuff published by people with actual military backgrounds, and then... Phil, who's a Walter Mitty.

    I think you are all underestimating the combat flashlight. If he shines it in your eyes, what are you going to do then? By the time you regain your vision he will either have disapeared or Knocked you out.

    I carry a combat flashlight with me at all times. Just in case of an emergency.

    A small brite flashlight is a handy thing to have. It's not much of a weapon by itself.

    Do you often get attacked in total darkness ? The guy attacking may have hidden in the shadows but he will proably attack where there's enough lighting so he can see you and vice versa...

    Do I carry a small flashlight ? Yes
    Do I think I could take it out fast enough to bling someone when attacked ? No

    Exept of course if I'm attacked by a zombie that is 20 meters away...

    And to have a book about this I mean what moves are so special to make when you have flashlight that's the size of your palm ?
