Some of the best alpine/woodland military camo is developed by the Swiss, but most of the rest of the world refuse to use it because it has pink and red splotches on it, making it look “unmanly.”
Honestly if you’d prefer to risk it for the sake of looking “manly” then you deserve to get shot.
"That couldn’t possibly work, Roman! Alpenflage is dumb and you’re dumb!”
DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT PLAY “WHERE’S WALDO” WITH THE SWISS
YOU WILL LOSE
This is fucking dumb as hell.
First off, those images don’t actually have anyone in them. You can zoom in and see for yourself. They’re low resolution images the OP took at a random forest. There are no other examples online. They circled something far enough away that you could never tell.
Lastly, that’s not how the pattern would work anyway. You’d still notice their silhouette, their helmet, and their gear unless it was some sort of ghillie suit (then it’s not even the same thing). That’s not to say the pattern doesn’t work but here’s the best example I could find.
If you notice, the pattern is designed for an autumn environment. It wouldn’t work elsewhere. That’s why other countries don’t use it. Not because it isn’t “masculine” or whatever bullshit Tumblr is trying to spin. That thing would be a bright bulls eye in Afghanistan.
Here’s an example of the camouflage we use (multicam):
Finally, other countries have in fact used splotches of red or shades of pink. The Nazis were the first to use one (it was called Leibermuster), which in turn became the foundation for the Swiss pattern shown above (Alpenflage/TAZ 83; you can tell by the name alone that it was designed with the Alps in mind, nowhere else). The Soviet Union and its successor states (Russia, Ukraine, etc.) have also used some really bizarre red camos.
At the end of the day, the Swiss changed the pattern to a more typical woodland green, brown, and black pattern in the ’90s (TAZ 90). So the whole argument is moot.
The only nation that services a red-coloured pattern is Oman and it’s stupid as fuck.
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU WOULD HEAR IN CASE OF A NUCLEAR ATTACK
Many countries have systems that allow them to speak to as many people as possible in case of something catastrophic.
The United States has the Emergency Alert System. When triggered, the system interrupts all T.V and radio systems to speak.
This is what it sounds like.
The most creepiest and terrifying noise and voices ever.
|What are the signs of emotional abuse?|
Abusive Expectations - Makes impossible demands, requires constant attention, and constantly criticizes.
Aggressing - Name calling, accusing, blames, threatens or gives orders, and often disguised as a judgmental “I know best” or “helping” attitude.
Constant Chaos - Deliberately starts arguments with you or others. May treat you well in front of others, but changes when you’re alone.
Rejecting - Refusing to acknowledge a person’s value, worth or presence. Communicating that he or she is useless or inferior or devaluing his or her thoughts and feelings.
Denying - Denies personal needs (especially when need is greatest) with the intent of causing hurt or as punishment. Uses silent treatment as punishment. Denies certain events happened or things that were said. Denies your perceptions, memory and sanity by disallowing any viewpoints other than their own which causes self-doubt, confusion, and loss of self-esteem.
Degrading - Any behavior that diminishes the identity, worth or dignity of the person such as: name-calling, mocking, teasing, insulting, ridiculing,
Emotional Blackmail - Uses guilt, compassion, or fear to get what he or she wants.
Terrorizing - Inducing intense fear or terror in a person, by threats or coercion.
Invalidation - Attempts to distort your perception of the world by refusing to acknowledge your personal reality. Says that your emotions and perceptions aren’t real and shouldn’t be trusted.
Isolating - Reducing or restricting freedom and normal contact with others.
Corrupting - Convincing a person to accept and engage in illegal activities.
Exploiting - Using a person for advantage or profit.
Minimizing - A less extreme form of denial that trivializes something you’ve expressed as unimportant or inconsequential.
Unpredictable Responses - Gets angry and upset in a situation that would normally not warrant a response. You walk around on eggshells to avoid any unnecessary drama over innocent comments you make. Drastic mood swings and outbursts.
Gaslighting -A form of psychological abuse involving the manipulation of situations or events that cause a person to be confused or to doubt his perceptions and memories. Gaslighting causes victims to constantly second-guess themselves and wonder if they’re losing their minds.
The last one is a killer and very important.
And the worst part about emotional abuse is that (at least in America) it’s not taught about to kids in school. I didn’t even hear the term “emotional abuse” until last year.
Abuse is described to american children as physically hurting someone on purpose and on multiple occasions.
If someone is emotionally or verbally abusing you, it’s just “bullying.”
They don’t even tell you about emotionally/verbally abusive parents. You don’t get informed about the line between punishment for a child and abuse. Many children could be living in an abusive household and not even know it.

|Why don't you tag triggers?|
I’m gonna be honest here, I’m surprised that someone actually asked me this.
I mean sure, the post actually told you to do so, but I didn’t actually expect anyone to.
But oh well. I actually do have some reasons.
it always kinda sucks when you start a NAP and get it all built up
but then the reply or prompt that your partner responds with just isn’t up to par
like, do you respond to it and just feel kinda bad throughout the whole rp or what? leading on people kinda sucks.
fuck man this sucks a lot
ask me why i don’t tag triggers
can i get another option called ‘fucking deal with it’
