        It is called Ripped Fuel and back then it had ephedra in it, ephedra was taken off the market due to abuse and the fact that it is a key ingredient in Crystal Meth.

    Grandfather was in the Battle of Vimy Ridge attached to the Canadian corp apparently about an hour into the start of the advance to the German defensive line his rifle discharged accidentally and he shot himself in the foot.

    And that was his first and only deployment, An hero.

    Does anyone here collect Pre-WW2 militaria? I started with buying a duffle bag with a gas mask, bag, captured German helmet, blackjack, dog-tags, numerous papers and tags, US helmet, whistle, Victory Belt (Equipment belt filled with insignias and medals treded to and from allied soldiers), Hate belt (German uniform buttons taken as kill trophies), and other miscellaneous items all identified to a U.S. Quartermaster named William H. Scott. Ever since, I have always been more fascinated with WW1 than any other era.

    I have the draft notices for 2 of my great-grandfathers for WWI, a discharge for another one, as well as a discharge for the Balkan Wars.

    A friend of mine has an original WWI US officer's tunic (missing all of the patches unfortunately though)
    And the surplus store I go to has a pristine condition US officers tunic, all complete, including patches, buttons, collar discs, and the whistle. It's a literally priceless piece

    Edited:

    I really want to get a WWI gas mask still though.

    Through my experiences in collecting, don't pay more than $100 for a U.S. Gas Mask, and be ready to have a very fragile piece. The insides were rubberized, and being almost 100 years old, they become very brittle and the inside flake off very easily. Also, if the mask is folded over in the listing, chances are it was stored in the bag that way since it was put away, and it will always have the center crease, if you can even open it at all. The hoses become brittle too, with the insides becoming brittle and stiff. That tunic you have is a great find! My quest is to complete the uniform and equipment set that William H. Scott was issued judging by his rank and being stationed in France. The tunic and pants I bought to use for the set were originally from the medical branch, with the caduceus collar disks, and a red cross armband with a possible blood stain on them. Great choice collecting from the First World War. I buy in large lots and unless the items are all grouped together by being named to a single soldier, I keep what I want, and sell what I don't. It's a very profitable business. As far as buying a gas mask or any other field gear, I recommend Great War Militaria: http://www.greatwar.com/Scripts/default.asp

    tl;dr, gas masks are fragile, and it's nice to know another collector. One of the few.

    no they give them actual amphetamine pills. they do it for pilots / have done it for pilots so probably the same for ground troops now.

    i don't know what he was doing in the ass end of nowhere at (what i thought was) some shitty airsoft fair in the UK, so i was pretty surprised.

    I've only watched a couple of his videos but i love the way he presents them, i keep kicking myself because i pretty much just said 'oh you're that guy off the internet i recognize you' and shook his hand before awkwardly walking off.

    Went and played paintball today. I have to say that even though I love Airsoft, paintball can be just as much fun and theres no assholes. At the place I usually play airsoft it's just a bunch of fat elitist cocks.

    Well, cosplay is very copious amounts of fun. I found that out last night, i attended a Homestuck cosplay meet-up. Turns out Homestuck cosplayers are fun.

    My Dad worked on F-117s in the 90s over in New Mexico, my Grandpa on my mother's side flew B-29's(i think?) in 'Nam. Never got any stories from him, he died when i was young.

    My school is home to a large cosplay convention every year. It's... creepy. I was half-tempted to show up and stomp around in my HECU garb this year and scare the usual weeaboo crowd but eventually decided that that would mean becoming one of them.

    Edit: Totally random, but this is a picture of my school's president. He's ready for Humans vs Zombies alright.

    And you're entitled to that opinion. Mine is exactly opposite, but probably because i'm one of them. Surprisingly, the public seemed, well, really okay with us. We kept ourself contained and didn't bother anyone, for fear of ruining our image as we planned to do it again.

    Well then you guys are doing it right, which is a rare sight. I'd still try and do at a dedicated con than just randomly in public, that always strikes me as a bit odd.

    Everyone(even the trolls) was okay at this meet-up. And it wasn't really random, we had gotten permission from the city 2 months in advance to have an event, as we planned to have like 50 people show up(which is what happened).
