NEW STRATAGEM FOR SKELETON WAR 2016

it is not october yet, but i have devised a new strategy for maximum spookage of the fuckboys once the war begins anew this year

this is callinectes sapidus, better known as the blue crab

they live only 1-2 years, and generally molt roughly 18-23 times in their life.

however, crabs are arthropods, correct? this means they lack an endoskeleton, but rather possess a shell-like exoskeleton.

think about that for a moment. in one year, a blue crab may shed it’s exoskeleton at least 18 times.

skeleton combatants drafted into the war are only capable of service once they have shed their skin and muscle.

if the skeleton army could get it’s hands on, say, 5 blue crabs at the start of january, then care for them throughout the year…

let’s say they will have molted 17 times once october has rolled around. that means you have 17 exoskeletons, all without tissue, or muscle. just bone.

now imagine that all 5 of these crabs have molted 17-18 times once october has arrived.

5 x 17 = 85

a swarm of crab skeletons, ready to be utilized in combat against the fuckboys

now imagine this on a much larger scale

say the skeleton army acquires 20 crabs

20 x 17 = 340

AND NOW IMAGINE IT ON A MUCH, MUCH LARGER SCALE


IF THE SKELETON ARMY CAN WEAPONIZE SUCH MASSIVE HORDES OF CRAB SKELETONS BY OCTOBER 2016, THE FUCKBOYS WON’T EVEN STAND A CHANCE, AND SKELETON CASUALTY LEVELS WOULD DROP EXPONENTIALLY


FUCKING CRAB SKELETON ARMY STORMING THROUGH FUCKBOY TERRITORY

ALL WHO SUPPORT THIS WAR PLAN MUST MAKE IT CLEAR NOW WHILE YOU STILL CAN

SKELETON ARMY OFFICIALS NEED TO SEE THIS BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE

1 REBLOG = 17 NEW CRAB SKELETONS FOR THE WAR EFFORT

Never Forget - Blackhawk Down

On October 3, 1993, Rangers conducted a daring daylight raid with other special operations units in which several special operations helicopters were shot down. For nearly 18 hours, the task force delivered devastating firepower, killing an estimated 600 enemy combatants in what many have called the fiercest ground combat since Vietnam.
18 service members made the ultimate sacrifice in accomplishing their mission. Their courage and selfless service will never be forgotten.

UFC 193: Upset

Not Serra over GSP. Not Weidman over Silva. Not Dillashaw over Barao. Not Sokoudjou over Lil Nog. None of those match the pure shock of seeing Holly Holm knock out Ronda Rousey yesterday. And that’s not because Ronda was the most complete, well rounded fighter. It is because none of those other fighters were anywhere near as dominant over there division as Rousey. None of them were getting rid of top 5 fighters inside of 20 seconds. None were as  athletically, physically, and technically dominant over every single person they had fought up to that point in there career.

So let’s look back at that night and just appreciate an upset that we’ll likely never see again in this MMA landscape.

  1. Holly Holm put on the fight of her life. Refusing to get caught in a bad position, she used her feet to stop any attempts at Rousey closing the distance. Some solid lefts mixed in with some great turns to escape were the key to opening up the head kick. Plus she’s just as cool as a cucumber. So composed mentally. This basically sets her apart in the female combat sports pantheon. 18 world championships and a UFC title will do that for you.
  2. I’m seeing a lot of “Rousey got exposed”. I mean, yes and no. Yes, that wasn’t the expected outcome at all. No, she was never perfect and the reasons she lost were basically things we knew she wasn’t great at: She’s not a good ring cutter, she’s not a good boxer at range, and she has to bull rush to get the clinch. Pretty much a lock for a rematch at UFC 200. She’s the reason women are in the UFC. She’s beaten like 7 or 8 of the top ten fighters in her division. She’s the most dominant champion the UFC has ever seen in terms of finishing challengers quickly. It’s a guaranteed blockbuster event and if Silva can get a rematch after getting embarrassed like he did in the first Weidman fight, Rousey can have her “she had a bad night/camp” fight too.
  3. With Joanna Champion and Holly Holm, two former world champion level strikers, picking up wins on what will be the biggest card of the year, what do you think that does for the WMMA meta-game? Traditionally, WMMA is a grappler dominated scene: Going back to Yuka Tsuji to Megumi Fujii to Carla Esparza to Claudia Gadelha to Miesha Tate to Alexis Daivs to Ronda Rousey. The whole striking aspect has been overlooked to a shocking degree while on the men’s side, being the better striker nowadays is winning title fights.
  4. Joanna Jedrzejczyk didn’t get the highlight reel KO that the UFC (or us fans) wanted that would launch her into stardom. And she is going to be overshadowed by Holm’s incredible performance. I’ll be damned though if Jedrzejczyk putting down a 5 round beating on Letournau wasn’t a thing of beauty. Especially with a broken hand. Valerie fought her ass off but Joanna Champion proved too great at what she does. Seems a lock that the Gadelha rematch is on the horizon for early spring next year. After that though, we have a whole list of strikers (Tecia Torres, Michelle Waterson, Justine Kish, Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Thug Rose, Alexa Grasso) chomping at the bit to get at her. Should be fun.
  5. I can’t enjoy the Mark Hunt win because Bigfoot has deteriorated so poorly. Just a sad reminder that he’s not healthy enough to be fighting anymore but will continue to get fights against high level competition that can really hurt him.
  6. If you’re Australian, you better get behind Robert Whittaker and Ben Nguyen now. Whittaker is the best thing to come out of Australia since Mark Hunt. He’s the best thing you got going (alongside Joseph Parker). He’s got age on his side too being only 24 years old in a top heavy division full of older guys like Bisping, Romero, Belfort, Machida, Silva, and Jacare. Wouldn’t surprise me to see him in a title fight eventually. Nguyen looks like an absolute beast so far, fading both Alp Ozkilic and Ryan Benoit in the first round. Not sure if he’ll climb the ladder like Whittaker has done but he’s bound to be in a lot of good fights.

● the Navy is teaching a new a new dog-fighting technique that does away with guns and missiles. I understand it’s called Aircraft Wrestling. These are photos of a pair of F-18 Hornets at Top Gun which had a mid-air collision and then the pilots “John Wayned” them back to base. Anyone has got to be NUTS to be a Naval Aviator.
Hook down - hydraulics gone - incredible… This truly is a miracle; two heavily damaged aircraft. The pilots would have been justified in “punching out” but instead, they chose to bring the jets in. This endangered their lives but saved the taxpayers about 80 million dollars. The story behind them is: Two F/A-18 Hornets from Top Gun were Dogfighting and made a head on pass, just a bit too close.
