The soldier fired more than 400 rounds, launched 17 grenades and detonated a mine to thwart the Taliban assault on his checkpoint near Babaji in Helmand Province, southern Afghanistan, last September. At one point, after exhausting all his ammunition, he had to use the tripod of his machine gun to beat away a militant who was climbing the walls of the compound.

A whole new level of badassery?
I dunno, as soon as I read it I thought of this.

Have the physics of reality shifted to that of an Arnold Schwarzenegger film?
Did he have a kickass one-liner at the end of his battle?
Did he emerge from the reckage, burnt and bruised, but proudly swaggering towards his allies?

But seriously, that man has BALLS.

EDIT: you know what, they don't even qualify as balls anymore. This man has HYPERSPHERES.

This was in the news a while ago. Gurkhas are insane.
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

What ever your reasons for despising him or the reasons he's there, you have to admit that is badass.

Then he seized the metal tripod of his machine gun and threw it at the approaching Taliban militant, shouting in Nepali 'Marchu talai' ('I will kill you') and knocking him down. Two insurgents were still attacking by the time the heroic Gurkha had used up all his ammunition, but he set off a Claymore mine to repel them.

At this point his company commander, Major Shaun Chandler, arrived at the checkpoint, slapped him on the back and asked if he was OK.


Jesus Christ. What a badass.

You've just reminded me that Kill Bill Volume 2 is on TV tonight!

He's incredibly badass. Also, why has no one make a joke about the fact that his name is Pun? I suspect the subconcious fear of being hunted and killed by The Pun!

When a Gurkha pulls out his Knife, he vows not to sheaf it until it has run with blood of his enemy.

This is their small axe Knife. Only if a man passes their course and won the respect of the regiment is he given a Knife.


This guys are so hardcore that they probably piss diesel and shit napalm.

I've spent the last 5 minutes trying to think of the name of the knife! Nice one!

Prince Harry was given one after spending several weeks with the Gurkhas in Afghanistan a couple of years ago. But has Harry ever fought off 30 Taliban before? He's probably fought 30 people while absolutley stinking drunk, that wild party animal, him.
