    There is no good reason for civilians to own semi-automatic guns.

    I think everybody agrees that character creation screens ought to be able to create all types of characters to represent any given person.

    The argument here is that battlefield's protagonists shouldn't be intended to represent anyone but the hardest most cock diesel infantry soldiers who could have ever possibly existed.

    I just read into it and it seems that electronic tests can be innacurate when you're too ripped or too fat.

    It's not ridiculous if you're an athlete or a soldier or insane or something.

    I typically eat one meal a day. It just feels right. It hurts to skip meals at first, but I'd just remind myself that I'm pretty sure it's good for me and that most people eat too damn much. After...

    I typically eat one meal a day. It just feels right. It hurts to skip meals at first, but I'd just remind myself that I'm pretty sure it's good for me and that most people eat too damn much. After a while the hunger pain stopped hitting me. Now I only eat twice in one day on occasion, like a holiday or something.

    I've also heard people talk about not having food in you making you generate more growth hormones. I have no idea if there's anything to it, but I can't write it off because at my biggest and leanest I was only eating once a day.

    It's not about historical accuracy and it's not about realism. It's about the fact that someone thinks they need representation in this game in the first place. You're playing as a guy who can sprint a hundred meters and then shoulder fire a 20 something lb machine gun. This doesn't represent me and it almost certainly doesn't represent you. Nobody's trying to get fat guys or short guys represented in the character list, so some people question the need to represent women.
