    Here it is folks. Proof that the movies lie. Private Ryan WAS NOT using a 1911 chambered in .45ACP. It was actually a 1911 chambered in 10mm...enjoy. :cool:

    With all due respect, I do not think this is funny.

    It is disrespectful and in very poor taste.

    As always YMMV.

    Well, for one....

    Portraying a courageous US Army officer shooting American troops.

    Making light of a film that was made to help Americans understand the great sacrifices made by our troops to destroy the evil Nazi regime.

    I'll stop there.

    If you are too stupid, or insensitive, to understand, I can't help you.

    Of course, maybe I'm a tad sensitive, since my beloved Uncle George, may he rest in peace, had his leg blown off at the Battle of the Bulge.

    And, the Nazi bastards utterly destroyed the German side of my family, followed by the Soviet bastards doing the same.

    But, sure, go ahead, this is all really, really funny stuff.

    Yuck it up, fuzzballs.

    Whoa... I respectfully ask a question and you immediately proceed to call me stupid? Maybe you should get yourself in check before you go all butthurt over a cheesy YouTube parody of a YouTube parody of a completely different movie. In case you didn't notice before achieving butthurt DEFCON 5, he was trying to parody a clip a guy made for LOTR (the second one, I think, which BTW was horribly insensitive to Orcs...).

    I thank your uncle for his service. As I do my late grandfather, who was in Normandy and was wounded in the breakout on the outskirts of Carentan. See how I can look at this and not think it is he next Jihad disguised as a YouTube clip? Not stupid. Not insensitive. Just reasonable and not butthurt.

    Also, WTF does this have to do with Soviets or Nazis and your family?? I don't think there was one Soviet in the clip, and I'll go out on a limb and say I certainly didn't see your family in there.




    TL : DR - Lighten up, Francis.
