Space Marines vs Arnie's Special Ops: Who ya got?

A few weeks ago my wife and I were having a serious discussion that eventually made its way to my Facebook page, and while there were advocates on both sides of the issue I never really felt like the thing was resolved. The mission was not over.

Nothing is over!

So I put it to you, Internet pals! In the great history of alien-ass kicking soldiers, who's tougher:

the Delta Force squad of Predator,



or the Colonial Marines from Aliens


Any way you look at it, it's a tough call; as someone pointed out to me, the Predator guys not only have Arnold Schwarzenegger at his peak, they've also got the former governor of Minnesota and MF'n Apollo Creed! On the other hand, Aliens features the craziest chola I've seen since La Smurf back in '85.

Do you think one squad has got it all over the other? Let me know in the comments, and vote for your favorite (and freedom) in the handy poll over on the right while you're at it.

Fall in!

I mean come on... have you seen the gun Jesse "the Body" Ventura carries? Goodbye, Space Marines. Hello red paste.

This is worth giving it a thought. Still, I think I like both teams. All in all, I asked for friendship through Facebook, lol.

Brandon: Are you talking about the firearm, or the sheer destructive potential of Jesse's bicep? Either way, it's hard to argue with. But still ... those guns a couple of the Colonial Marines use — you need a harness just to carry it! And their standard issue rifles come equipped with grenade launchers!

Chris: Done and done!

Thanks! By the way, do you have a fanpage for your blog on Facebook? They work like a charm!

That's really, really nice of you to suggest, Chris — but I don't think I'd get many fans! Then I'd have to sit alone, with only a blank page and The Smiths for company.

It does work great for my blog, but it does require more work, lol.
