    The bad acne in the picture above suggests that this may actually be an adolescent male instead.

    That is true for very many values of “it”.

    The recent history of Georgia and Russia (recent as in from the fall of the soviet union to today) is full of violence, war, and war crimes against civilians.

    If anyone thinks August 2008 was an isolated incident does not know their history.

    #20 One of those values is “me”

    and a sock full of flour with a knot tied in it.

    We had a sock full of gravel wrapped in duct tape, among other projectiles. About once a year a kid would need stitches, our parents never learned how it really happened. Girls played too.

    The “white tights” tag line isn’t about the clothes the sniper wears, but rather ANOTHER mythical group that they resemble in practice (ie, sniping off Russian soldiers).

    Sounds like something straight out of Metal Gear Solid 4.

    #13 :’Obligatory comment: “Are they single and may I have their number?”‘

    yep. it’s etched on the bullet.

    Who’s the girl? I’d assume BB didn’t actually GET a picture of a mythical Georgian sniper. And unlike the poster above, I think the green highlights are totally hawt.

    I am a girl, and I have to tell you that the person with a sock full of gravel would have had a face full of my fist. Flour hurts bad enough, and I used to be quite the scrapper, as a kid. Textbooks, tree branches, chairs, yard equipment, toys and my teeth; whatever was handy. I just didn’t want to be the one bleeding at the end of the day.

    “…the skin blemishes mean that it could just be a young male sniper…”

    Why would blemishes = male? Women get zits too, they just cover them up with makeup so that nobody sees them. Now a female sniper? If she is seen, her first worry isn’t going to be about looking pretty.

  12. Antinous says:

    They’re hard to find because their hideouts walk around on giant chicken legs.

    The photo is marked ‘Female Sniper’, but are we even sure that’s a photo of a woman? The yellow and green wavy stuff is the snipers ghillie suit, and the skin blemishes mean that it could just be a young male sniper. Although the eyebrow is vaguely suggestive.

  16. Aloisius says:

    Well since some women can see four distinct ranges of color, I imagine they’d be prefect as snipers. Tetrachromat would probably have an easier time spotting people in camouflage.

  17. dustbuster7000 says:

    Aloisius, whats a range of color?

  18. etho says:

    I can’t be the only one who thinks that is totally hot.

    Aloisius is talking about:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetrachromacy

    “It has been suggested that women who are carriers for variant cone pigments might be born as full tetrachromats, having four different simultaneously functioning kinds of cones to pick up different colors. One study suggested that 2–3% of the world’s women might have the kind of fourth cone that lies between the standard red and green cones, giving, theoretically, a significant increase in color differentiation. Another study suggests that as many as 50% of women and 8% of men may have four photopigments.”

    might as well be killed by someone interesting.

  21. Sparrowhawk says:

    Don’t think the Russians aren’t above having brigades of hot female snipers.

    Glad #1 said it.

    Also, nice choice of tags

  23. Anonymous says:

    Nope, Etho. I’m right with you.

  24. Takuan says:

    “hot”, I see “hot” mentioned quite a bit. Clearly, these have never smelled an on-duty sniper.

  25. airship says:

    The ‘White Tights’? I think these guys read too many comic books.

  26. mouthyb says:

    You know, if I was out in the woods patiently awaiting targets, I would not be wearing white tights. Especially not in Russia, as the undergrowth I’d be laying in would cut through those things very quickly.

    I’m from Latvia an I’m proud if it’s true, but it seems an other Rusian political campain against their small neighbour country

  28. mdh says:

    MouthyB, when I was a kid we’d play Manhunt in the woods. One of the kids was so good he started wearing painters pants and a white t-shirt, and we STILL could never find him. He later joined the army and has survived 3 deployments.

  29. mouthyb says:

    We used to play a game called ‘murderer in the dark’ that sounds similar. Woods, no lights, ‘murderer’ has a flashlight. You get a twenty second lead and then you’re off to try and reach an agreed on oak tree before the murderer catches you.

    I played my entire childhood. I believe I only lost once, but I’m not above cheating and moving when the other person moves/is chasing another player.

    I’m with Takuan…

    Besides, didn’t anyone watch Enemy at the Gates?

    “I slowly put snow into my mouth so they cannot see my breath…”

    That’s the exact opposite of hot. :p

    Nicely done, Faustus!

    Did anybody else read “Female Strippers” instead of “Female Snipers” ?

    Dyslexia is strong with me today.. :-)

  38. mouthyb says:

    When we were feeling really fiesty, we played a version where the ‘murderer’ had a flashlight and a sock full of flour with a knot tied in it.

  39. The Unusual Suspect says:

    #8, “White” because it’s camouflage (they operate in snow) and “tights” because loose-fitting pants would interfere with skiing.

    At least, that’s what Svetlana told me.

    snipers in white tights are like wearing pajama bottoms in public. Sexy when a woman does it, creepy when a man does it…

  41. LyhjeHylje says:

    Maybe the Russian generals have listened too many WW2 war stories and believe the granddaughters of “belaya smert” are coming after them.

    Now, these Russian sniper grlz are by far hotter IMO!

  45. Ernunnos says:

    #17, if that man’s got a body of a biathlete, I don’t expect anyone will complain if he’s wearing tights. The white tights rumor probably has its origins in biathlon. There was a TV movie 10 years ago about Olympic shooters turning sniper in Bosnia.
