There's just so much good stuff about being from belgium, right.   
 We're know for waffles even though we don't even into waffle that much. IF they know that we're a country, that is.

Hey, the FN P90 was made in Belgium. You guys are good at making ultimate killing machines.

And they're the inventors of the best damn sub-machine gun in the world, the FN P90.

Or famous rifles like the FN FAL and FN F2000.

The plastic and aluminum wonder that shoots low stopping power $1 rounds, with terrible stock sights and the most awkward magazine changes known to man?
User avatar #11 to #10 - TheMather ONLINE (10/10/2013) [-]
The lightweight and compact, ambidextrous wonder that shoots high-velocity bullets at a rate that rivals/beats most assault rifles, with a magazine with more capacity than most weapons can dream of even for extended ones, next to no recoil and a great range of customization.
Additionally, the weapon design is optimized for use and carry in constricted conditions, and is such easily the best choice of weapon for tank and helicopter personnel.
User avatar #14 to #11 - oceanmist (10/10/2013) [-]
Or get an mp5/mp7/kriss superV and get more reliability, less recoil, close to the same capacity, non awkward mag changes, more customization, and the same or more stopping power.
User avatar #22 to #14 - folkflunky (10/10/2013) [-]
The P90 is made to be compact, that's why it has "awkward mag changes". Also, it doesn't have that much recoil, the fire rate is fast enough, and the mag has so many bullets some guns can only dream about it. The F2000 is a bullpup. A **** ton of bullpups have their mags in the stock. Also, the design is awesome both with and without it's telescopic sight. And, finally, ***** you talking **** about the FN FAL? That gun was designed in 1954 and it came out in 1955. That's a lot older than your stupid MP5. 11 years older. You can't talk **** about it. YOU CAN'T. I DENY YOU THAT RIGHT.

With regards to the FN FAL...

My Grandfather served in Vietnam and talks highly of the SLR, the name for the Australian L1A1, the name of the British FN FAL.
User avatar #68 to #32 - folkflunky (10/10/2013) [-]
Basically everyone that served in Vietnam talks highly about the FN FAL. Maybe it's a little outdated in the present, since there are rifles as accurate that are full-auto, but in it's time it would make you drown in **** .
User avatar #69 to #68 - threeeighteen ONLINE (10/10/2013) [-]
The SAS would shorten their FAL's and make the automatic, had the Vietcong ******** themselves at night.
User avatar #70 to #69 - folkflunky (10/10/2013) [-]
USA made a "sawed-off" clone of the FN FAL for the police, called DSA-58OSW.

**** seems heavy.

if you are referring to domestic then yes it sucks. Go to a nice bar in your area or a bigger liquor store and try some micro-brews. I don't know where you live, but i live in the Midwest and I have tried several of the smaller breweries around me. I also found my new favorite beers. People's brewing company makes SpaceCowboy and Three Floyds makes ZombieDust. America has great beer, you just have to find it

Not trying to down play the situation, but only 17 percent of the American government is shutdown. Don't worry, your friendly neighborhood CIA, NSA, FBI, and TSA are still hard at work.

You'd be wrong about that. They're still technically established but don't currently operate. Try to call your local fbi branch

Department of justice is considered essential, therefor FBI is still operating, albeit under lower staffed conditions.

User avatar #66 to #44 - wersand (10/10/2013) [-]
If you look at the people who are out of jobs right now, you'd see who they are and why we have them. Let's just shut down all gov't funded museums and parks. Nobody wants to learn anyway.
User avatar #67 to #66 - douthit (10/10/2013) [-]
It's a fallacy to assume that something couldn't exist, if not in its current form. There could be libraries and museums without government, if they'd only privatize them. They can't afford to keep them open, but still won't privatize them so people could still enjoy them. They're kept shut to punish the people for not raising the deb limit, just like the national parks. And yet government remains blameless. tsk tsk tsk
User avatar #74 to #67 - wersand (10/10/2013) [-]
Yes, privatized ancient artifacts seems like a good idea.
Jk. No it doesn't. It should belong to public.
If anything needs a budget cut, then it's our military budget, not our museums.
User avatar #75 to #74 - douthit (10/11/2013) [-]
You assume only one thing can have its spending cut. Everything needs to have spending slashed. The government is $17 trillion in debt, and it only gets bigger each year. Have you heard of the tragedy of the commons? Check out the Wikipedia page. To give an analogy, it's the principle by which if there were a "public" field open to all farmers, then every farmer would have an incentive to let their cattle graze the field down to nothing, and it would inevitably end up barren. The same idea applies to everything--privatization is the best policy, because giving individuals a monetary stake in something means they'll do their best to preserve or to better it. I believe it to be obvious that this is the most logical way to go about things, but a criticism of privatization is that we'll have to pay for what we now get for "free". But nothing's free. We are already paying for the "public" things we have, only in taxes and at the expense of our children in the form of debt.
User avatar #76 to #75 - wersand (10/11/2013) [-]
I'm afraid I don't think privatization is the way to go, I'm sorry we disagree. All of that sounds good in practice, but it's about as good as communism. People don't care about their "things" they care about the money they can make. If that means getting rid of 100 to have the only one and make it worth more they might just do it.

I would never entrust the Bust of Nefertiti, or the Pergamon to any person. It needs to be a collective of a state or country to protect these cultural artifacts. If forest were left to privatization, you'd have had more rampant deforestation.

Privatization of public goods is dangerous, and I cannot agree with you at all.
User avatar #77 to #76 - douthit (10/11/2013) [-]
But the forgotten thing in that is taxation, the belief that people's property (money) can justly be taken, and then assumed that a small group of bureaucrats could ever spend that money in a way that every taxpayer supports. Nobody makes better decisions with others' property or money than they do with their own. Besides, I have no doubt that the vast majority of people running museums or collecting treasured artifacts on their own do it out of interest and love of the material, rather than money.
User avatar #78 to #77 - wersand (10/11/2013) [-]
Yes, and they stay holed up in houses. I also disagree that people know how to spend their money the best.

I have already mentioned that we disagree economically, so I really don't have more to say on this subject, and I hope you have a good day.

Well during those days without a government, people even didn't notice anything was different. Although maybe there was a difference. Taxes weren't raised during that time. I love Belgium as a country but our ministers and our tax system is just **** . And on top of that our prime minister is a gay italian immigrant who looks like a doctor from 80's sitcom. How can other countries take us seriously?

I don't know much about Belgium so I don't quite get the reference. I met someone from Belgium once though. He was a bit odd. Literally the first conversation I had with him was about how back in Belgium there are entire streets dedicated to foot fetishes. I don't even think we greeted each other before hand, we we just in the same room and he started talking about foot fetishes, and streets dedicated to them. Kind of off topic but the mentioning of Belgium reminded me of it. They're not all weird right?

Here's a little thing for you.
First off, there are four main country based comics;
-Scandinavia and the World
(they appeared in that order)

-Afghanis-tan was based on Middle East Asia (discontinued)
-Hetalia was based on the Axis and Allies in WWII, mainly centering out Italy. This has changed and focuses on lots of things; country relations, national horror movies, laws, food, cultures, jokes; you name it there has probably been an episode/comic strip (and racist joke) on it. It's famous amoung anti-fans for not being very accurate, and a lot fo countries are in it that are no long around, like North Italy (with Rome being the capital, Venice is no long an independant state), and Prussia.
-Scandinavia and the World bgaen because Humon didn't feel the Nordics in Hetalia were properly portrayed (the onyl character really changes is Finland but that's beside the point). It is based around the Nordics, and recently focuses on news matters, as shown above.
-Polandball is ignorant and poorly portrayed, coming from someone who does very little research into the comic subjects.

-More recently there is Histeria; a web comic based of Hetalia, using Britain (as England) and focusing on the history of the British isles.

Summary; poland ball is the worst example and world news/history comics there is. There's better out there.
