I knew a couple of guys in my fraternity that were on the seven year plan.

Or maybe that was the seven beer plan.

I'm just repeating what the facebook post claimed. Maybe lexicographers appreciate nuance more than we do. Or perhaps the entire post was made up from whole cloth.

Because the Love of the M-14 draws you into the Cult and ruins you life. The FAL is just plain addictive like sex, chocolate or heroin. Jarhead

Just something about an evil pistol grip every time. And if you run out of ammo you can use it to pummel if needed and not crack that fancy bedding on the forearm

I used to be in that squadron, The 159th. When I got there, they were still flying F-4 Phantoms. I was there when they made the transition to the F-15s.

BREAKING: Trump ends US China trade war; swaps Hong Kong for California in unprecedented deal



Washington DC—After months of growing trade Tensions between the US and China leading to an impending global recession, along with mounting strife in China’s Hong Kong province prompting dissidents to wave American flags, US President Donald Trump has negotiated quite possibly the biggest deal of his life.

The US will trade the entire state of California for Hong Kong in a flat exchange.

“Basically everyone in California wants to be commies and Hong Kong wants to be American, so we did what we call a win-win-win and traded the two in a tremendous deal,” Trump said in a press conference announcing the unprecedented deal.

Markets responded with a complete turnaround from recent declines and posted record numbers.

Californians and Hong Kongers were dancing in their respective streets—Californians happy about the 1-child-only policy and being run by the Communist Party finally!—and Hong Kong happy about being part of the free world once again.

Not really a MEME but......
