I was lucky enough to get a spin out in a Mach II last year, it's well the best rib ever made in the world ever

If I had 500 grand in my pocket it wouldn't be there long

Couldn`t resist that. I agree that most of the comments towards Grylls are borne out of jealousy. He strikes me as e decent family man. And lucky to be getting paid to do some great adventures.

However it does annoy me a bit the way they push the SAS bit.

There is a considerable difference between 22 & 23 SAS. (info from a reliable source)

Anyway let`s talk rib`s!

Chris Ryan was 23 SAS, the only guy from Bravo two zero to escape

I'm sure that your cousin's boyfriend will be tickled that his girlfriend's cousin has just announced on the www that he's special forces.

Steady on lads!

Never said TA aren`t doing a sterling job in Afganistan!

Just saying there`s a difference between 22 SAS and 21 &23 TA units.

My "reliable source" tells me Bear Grylls was with 21 and not 23. He was with them for 3 yrs. 18 months of which he couldn`t train due to a parachuting accident.

Reliable source say 18 months of weekends and a few exercises doesn`t qualify you to claim ex SAS.

He also says Chris Ryan was 22 sas by the time of Bravo Two Zero (apparantly he left TA and joined regulars).

Apologies if i`ve upset any TA, sas, TV Presenters etc. Apologise also for non rib related post.

Rib only posts from me from now on!
