Many recruits charged before in my time and still now. SOL usually. And for idiotic practises in live range like pointing loaded weapons at humans

The pin actually does matter for a stun grenade (or what Americans call flashbangs). A stun grenade has a 3s fuse, 2s less than a frag grenade. And it is a stick full of magnesium that can melt your hand; which means if you don't grip the thing tightly enough you can say hi to a plastic surgeon when it goes off - a trooper once had one go off in his hand and despite wearing fireproof tactical gloves, he had serious burns that required him to be sent to the hospital.

Stun grenades are usually thrown with a underhand so it does not fly too far, plus it will explode in midair and blind everyone in the room, so it is just as dangerous. I would rather hold any grenade tightly and gently take out its pin rather than trying to get it out of my hand ASAP because lethal or not, its effects are always unpleasant.

Singaporeans must save $5,033 a month for 'comfy retirement'

Quote:
That's a whopping 66% of their yearly wage.

According to HSBC's latest study Future of Retirement: A New Reality, in order to live comfortably during retirement, people in Singapore indicate that they will require 66% (or two-thirds) of their current annual household income which works out to be S$60,400 or S$5,033 per month.

This is 68% more than in the last 2011 study where the figure was S$3,000. Singapore’s income replacement ratio, together with Australia (also 66%), is the lowest across 15 countries surveyed where the global average is 78%.

Cash remains a big part of Singaporeans’ wealth portfolio. On what makes up retirement income, the study found that the largest proportion will come from cash savings and deposits which constitutes a third (34%) of retirement income here, followed by investments (19%), and property income and assets (12%).

This reliance on cash to fund one’s retirement income is reinforced by another finding where over two-thirds (69%) of Singapore respondents expect cash savings and deposits to contribute towards their retirement income, followed by life insurance (54%), stocks and shares (37%), and income generated from property (36%).
Worst. Writing. Ever. TRL can you reach out into your community and find out who the writer is so we can slap him/her/it?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Dunno how it is for flashbangs but with frag-grenades the pin isn't all that tight anyway. As long as your one hand is depressing the lever, a gentle twist and pull will remove the pin.

You really do not want to squeeze a frag until your hands are white and numb that when you throw it just drops a few feet in front of you

You really have to hold the stun grenade properly because of its stick shape; which can easily slip from your hands.

Although non-lethal, the bang is really loud enough to make the naked ear bleed.

RT: Crusader invader: Darth Vader on ‘anti-drug raid’ in Ukrainian shop (VIDEO)

Quote:
Originally Posted by RT
Imperial stormtroopers, led by Darth Vader, raided a shop in Odessa, Ukraine, on Saturday. The squad claims it was on a mission to find and destroy herbal smoking blends, prohibited in the country and allegedly sold in the store.

The "special" operation was kick-started by a command given by a man dressed as the Dark Lord of the Sith, of Star Wars fame.

The brigade of imperial stormtroopers then broke into an Odessa store, screaming “For the Emperor!” and asking the man inside “Where are the drugs?” They searched on and under the counter, ending up by collecting what they believed were prohibited substances into a saucepan.

The operation culminated in stormtroopers setting the saucepan’s contents on fire and also in throwing a smoke flare into the shop.

The shopkeeper, who denies he was selling anything prohibited, called police, but the costumed activists managed to disappear before they came.

Still the leader of the group had time to speak to Ukrainian journalists. It was Emperor Palpatine’s order “to mercilessly and irreversibly cut the knot of drug dealing: to destroy the shops selling smoking blends and other powders. Those guilty of poisoning the nation should be brought to strict account before the Empire,” said Darth Vader to Dumskaya.net news website.

Star Wars-related paraphernalia are used by the Internet Party of Ukraine, which claims Darth Vader is its deputy head. Last Tuesday, people disguised as Star Wars anti-heroes attempted an assault on the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice in Kiev, demanding a review of the recent decision to abolish the Internet Party.

The news posted at the party’s website says the raid was carried out by a group of unidentified people. However the party’s Darth Vader confirms the event was initiated by him at a personal page on the Vkontakte (In Contact) social network.

Imagine those cosplayers being Ultramarines instead of stormtroopers.

So Ukraine joined the Galactic Empire. Neat. How long before they replace their T-84s with AT-ATs?
