I think this was a Ninjas vs Pirates question in disguise.  Not regular pirates, ELITE pirates.

Are we talking actual SEALs?  Because I've heard plenty of loudmouths in bars who claimed to be SEALs.

If you have someone telling you they're a SEAL, they're not a seal. Except for Jessie Ventura. He's just a douchebag.

Neither is as quiet as a moderate Republican.

SEALS, SEALS, SEALS...

Is it just me or dies EVERYONE personally know a Navy Seal?

It's like whenever I hear some redneck back here in Boise trying to act cosmopolitan by claiming they have 'lots of black friends...'

Really? Really?

I feel that SEALs are probably a lot like professional knife fighters.  If you can see the guy's knife before you are bleeding, then you aren't actually dealing with a professional knife fighter.  Similarly, someone making a big deal of themself because they are a SEAL probably isn't (or if they are, they are chumps).

"Remember, if you want to be a SEAL, you must do two things: listen to your parents and be nice to the other kids. If you do that then you can probably be a SEAL too."

Potentially the world's most misleading advice, ever.

Well, okay, "Both sides are bad, so vote Republican" is pretty bad advice as well, I'll admit.

CSB time. My brother trained at Great Lakes, and one night while on liberty, watched two Seals clear out an entire bar. He hasn't said anything bad about one since.

Used to know this douchenozzle who went around bragging that he was not only a former Navy SEAL, but that he spent time on Bill Clinton's personal security team prior to Clinton's presidency. A lot of this bragging went on while the guy was working as a "supervisor" at the Home Depot.

Glockenspiel Hero's Badass Theory: If you ever have to tell someone you're a badass, you're not.  When you reach true badass status, you're confident enough in your badassitude there's no need to flaunt it.

While I don't know any SEALs, I do know Green Beret combat vets.  Some of the quietest, calmest people I've ever met.

It's true in other fields as well: I've met a number of Nobel Prize winners and folks who are on the short list for one.  One or two are assholes, but most are very nice folks who are genuinely excited about the science they are doing.

I admire SEALS but it irks me that the SEALS get credit for everything. We are not supposed to know what they do. DELTA gets no respect. They get credit for nothing unless we find out about it because it didn't work. They end up looking like a bunch of fark ups.

I've met a couple SEALSs over the years. Had photos to back up their claims. One spent 9 months in a wheelchair from being wounded on the invasion of Panama. He's a programmer now for F-16 simulators at an AFB in North Carolina.

My former Handyman was a seal, one of my tenants and I were having a beer and I noticed he was a navy man by his tattoos, I mentioned him I served myself and we spat a few jokes back and forth, and he told me about my handyman Pete. I called BS on it, being I know a few Seals from Tampa (work for Macdill) including the CSM who recently retired in charge of the whole shabang. Pete did Panama, ended up medically retired due to a heart condition - he worked day labor when he didn't work for me - tragic however he got killed when he got into it with some crackhead at the labor pool.

His unknown heart condition he never told his family about or anyone, someone crackhead shoved him and he fell into a table, ended up dead two days later in the hospital. I only found out how serious of a service man he was when they flew his body to Arlington cemetery, full military honors.
He was a class act, you would never known this guy to be a Seal if you looked at him, even the way he acted. Sad part about all this, his family was rich as hell - millions of dollars. He wouldn't ask his parent for 1 penny, his father threw him out of the house at 17, and he scavenged until he joined the navy.

I wish I knew more of the man, but I didn't ask him about it - he wasn't to happy to talk about it either - probably the medical discharge.

I don't want to brag, but I actually went to Seal School while in the Core. I didn't graduate because they said I was overqualified. I don't know if you've ever seen the movie Con Air, but yeah, that was about me.

You are such a liar. That movie was about me. I finished up SEAL training right after I got out of the same monastery that the Goddamn Batman was at. Which was right after Force Recon training. I was on that plane over a simple misunderstanding which was never really resolved.
