(no such thing as an "ex"-marine. Don't call them that! Say "former.") Code of the West rule.

Anytime that I have ever called a Marine a former Marine I get the quick response once a Marine always a Marine

That is a true worst case scenerio.

A True Kill Shot

Hock that could be your next shirt logo  ;D

"The bear took the family's cooler and was heading back to the woods when the youngest son, 6-year-old Logan, hurled a shovel at it.

The bear then dropped the cooler and started coming at the boy, said his father. Fearing what might happen next, Everhart, an ex-Marine , grabbed the closest thing he could find - a log from their stash of firewood.

"(I) threw it at it and it happened to hit the bear in the head," Everhart said. "I thought it just knocked it out but it actually ended up killing the bear." "


OK..so the kid was an idiot and the Marine got lucky, and had what he threw happen to hit the bear in the head. And just happen to kill it. It ain't exactly Iwo Jima.

Not to mention the thread title is misleading. Sounds like he used a branch or something he was holding instead of a log he threw. I don't think a kid running from a bear and his Dad throwing a log and inadvertantly killing it will sell a lot of shirts. Maybe under the title "bullshit luck" and sold at casinos.

  The kid throws a shovel at a bear that is leaving and causes it's return and his own possible death. The Marine, in an attempt to scare the bear away,throws a log and accidently hits it in the head and kills it and all of a sudden he he has killed the bear with a single stick blow. It's a misleading thread title...overblown rah rah praise. It's great he saved his kid but what father wouldn't have, it has nothing to do with being a Marine. More to do with being a father.

Marine, SF, Ninja, who gives a flying fuck! I perfer a Dad doing what needed to be done to save one of his kids. Yeah lucky shot with a stick so what, he didnt know or think that it was going to do anything much let alone kill it. What we have here is still someone who is out classed stepping up to the plate and beating the odds. And that is what makes this guy a hero in my books!

happy HTFU day

I got to give it up to you Marines!  You deserve respect without question.  "its no Iwo Jima", come on man.  One of my best family friends was on that shithole of an island, and he never EEEEEver talked about it.  It was sacred and sacreligous to even ask him about it. 

That is like saying to a nun, you need to get laid.  Lord I apologize for that!

Anyway, it isn't luck to chuck a log and hit something.  I used to practice with throwing sticks for hunting small game and even got good at throwing other sharp instruments.  Our ancient ancestors used to chuck rocks and sticks and spears all the time to save their asses.  No joke about it, learn to get accurate throwing whatever you can get your grimmey hands on.

I once got into an altercation with a so-called friend and I somehow ended up throwing a broken table leg at him and it stuck deep into the drywall right next to his head, and it ended the fight, he took off!

Hooooyah to the Marine Daddy that saved his son!

Telling a Nun she needs to get laid.. WOW! Get on the Bus now! we have reserved a shot of Hocks favorite whiskey ( it comes in a bottle ) and a seat in the front row. Right next to the Professors stack of books and Uncle Nicky's drool bucket.
And there is no such thing as a lucky Marine. See Uncle Nicky's input about the Marine and the 2 bowling balls.
That is all
