If "time" is for you the problem, you could consider that Nola has maybe made a little lie about his age - he's maybe more in his late 30's (or even early 40's) than in his mid-30's. Nothing to make a drama out of.

The more these one rep sock puppets come out the more I get convinced we're getting NTP'd.

Don't get why these non contributors suddenly start posting when NTP comes up all of a sudden. It's like a magic buzzword.

Anyways lies add up. And embellishing your age on a forum like this to a large degree(mid 30s is definitely different than being in your 40s) is highly suspect.

They come out because these kinds of posters are what lots of them wish they were. Dudes are perfect and are living the dream right? Sounds great right? You are a younger cat and you hang around older dudes here. Likely some of us inspire you as well while you are still on the grind trying to get established.

The lies do add up. The funny thing is NTP did not have to lie about the boats, China, or even the 5% body fat. Had he just toned it down just a weeee bit. He would still be here. If that person he claimed was him in that good shape at the swimming pool, he would could have just flexed off of that. No need for cherries and whipped cream.

Unfortunately the lesser experienced guys are not likely to see all of this, which is the responsibility of the older members to call out issues as they see them. It's not perfect, but that's all we have for now.

I guess that since it was a response to my post above, you are talking about me - FYI, view others with disdain or as inferiors has a name, it's grandiosity (and it's associated with narcissistic personality disorder). And grandiosity is seldom flattering or productive. Without even mentionning that your "conspiraty theory" is pretty ludicrous.

I don't think you know what NPD really is. Comte does not exhibit any of the qualifications for it. However, Nasa Test Pilot definitely exhibited nearly every symptom of it, up to including one of the Theodore Millon subtypes related to it. I think you need to buy a DSM manual and read it cover to cover at least once before tying to diagnose random people on the forum with various mental, personality, and behavioral disorders.

RE: How to Join the French Foreign Legion
Some of you guys are focusing on just one aspect and missing the bigger picture.

For example QC who focuses on the foreign legion only and missing the full picture of falsehoods, such as already proven not being a captain but (maybe) a deckhand. Yet even that doesn't fit. 8 years it was. When?

And the timeline keeps collapsing and changing.

This was what Nola originally wrote some time back about saturation diving:

Quote:I left the USA and joined the French Foreign Legion. I thought I was going to become a soldier of fortune. I broke my leg 20 weeks into training jumping out of a plane and went back to the US.... I was depressed...

I took up training as a saturation diver in the Northwest thinking I was going to become the next Jacques Cousteau. I ended up doing demolitions and pipeline NDT testing on oil rigs for 1.5 years.... I was depressed...

I went back to the French Foreign Legion fully recovered and commenced training again.

Not only did he train in the Northwest, he did god damn demolition pipeline testing in on oil rigs as a saturation diver. The education to become a NDT diver takes at least one year in itself. This is not saturation diver training, but the NDT training in itself which according to this can be completed within a year, but in vocational schools and community colleges.

We then have a broken leg, which makes Nola go back from the foreign legion to the US. He then supposedly trains a saturation diver in the Northwest, apparantly in addition to also training to become a NDT technician.

However, this is not what he now claims:

Quote:I did go to commercial diving school while in college in the US for an ADC cert. I also later went to INPP in France while in the Legion for saturation training outside of my requirements in because I was training in Marseilles for the Legion.

This was not at all what he said before, he specifically said he trained to be a quote:

Quote:I took up training as a saturation diver in the Northwest thinking I was going to become the next Jacques Cousteau. I ended up doing demolitions and pipeline NDT testing on oil rigs for 1.5 years.... I was depressed...

Not in Marseille or France, in the Northwest and he did not "later" went to get that cert, he got it after breaking his leg 20 weeks into the legion, then going back and doing 1.5 years as a saturation diver NDT technician.

Quote:In the Legion we are allowed to get continued education after a curtain point. I got the training which required two bell bounce dives and I completed to full stint dives to qualify for my DCBC requirements and HSE.

He has never mentioned his 1.5 years as a saturation diver (of which there are 300 in the entire US) in the Northwest doing NDT work. Now it's about some dives in the legion to get some cert, but hey, that's not what he wrote. He specifically said he was a saturation diver and NDT tech on oil rigs BEFORE he really entered the legion (he broke his leg and went back after 20 weeks).

In this timeframe, which is all over the place, you also have to factor in the training to become an NDT technician (seemingly around a year), recovery from a broken leg (anywhere from a couple of months to half a year or more), then on top of that 1.5 years of actual work.

Maybe there are good explanations, maybe Nola will now drop a lot of fancy titles and certifications and the like, which he never explains, just drops and then we have to go on a goosehunt to figure it out.

Shit, I can't keep up anywhere, look at what I am finding:

Quote:did a short stint as a dive medical tech and commercial diver and have never heard of this happening.

a vessel caught my umbilical and blew me up 5 atmospheres which was what essentially ended my short commercial diving career.

Is this when you were also a saturation diver NDT technician?

How brief was this stint?

It had to be during your NDT work right? It couldn't have been before because then you'd not be able to work. So you were a saturation diver, an NDT tech AND a medical tech?

RE: How to Join the French Foreign Legion
Good points, Nomadbrah. It's possible that both you guys (i.e., both you and Nola) are right, but are coming from different perspectives.

Look, I have no dog in this fight, and at this point it's just all speculation on everyone's part. I've never met Nola and don't know anything beyond what he has said. I really don't give a shit one way or another: frankly I'm just disappointed that now we can't hear any of his Legion stories. I wish he had not left.

All the holes in his story that you're pointing out could just as easily be explained by someone who--for whatever reason--doesn't want to reveal too much personal detail. All I'm saying is that (1) the things he said that are within my personal experience added up, and (2) my overall impression is that this is a guy with real-world military experience.

As for all the other shit about yachts, jobs, and all that, it could be that it's all just padding, or exaggeration, or whatever. Maybe time dilation is going on.

I think what some of you guys may be forgetting is that some guys are just eccentric. Or odd. It doesn't mean they are frauds or fakes, it just means they have their own idiosyncracies.

A few people here just recently could not believe that a certain person, supposedly living in the middle of nowhere in Tasmania, would spend all his free time typing posts on the forum, even at 2:00 or 3:00 am in the morning. They were convinced that this person was a "fraud" or a "fake" or a "troll."

Turns out he wasn't a fraud, he was just an intense, high-strung, opinionated dude who likes to post at 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning. Whatever. Some guys are just wacky like that. They just like doing shit. That's what we need to keep in mind.

Some guys just like to blow off steam. We need keep in mind that everybody is bringing his own background and vision to the table.

But hey, I could be totally wrong. Who knows?

QC; I think the incongruence comes from the fact that most serious ex military types are usually the last to exaggerate or over-blow their life stories.

It's always the ones who actually cooked the meals in the officer's mess that talk bollocks about being in the SAS or whatever.

We've all met enough of them over the years for sure!

Stomping off in a hissy fit, when one quite clearly cares about the opinions of the strangers on this forum also strikes me as incongruent with the character portrayed.

Just a thought.

That makes you 21-22 years old when Katrina hit NO.

And in college.

And deployed?

And taking a commercial diving license?

And being a captain at Tom Perkins yacht?

And a real estate investor?

I'm fucking done with this now.

Edit:

I forgot, Nola was studying at MIT in Boston, but apparantly in addition to his deployments, startup work and "multiple civilian jobs", found time to run a real estate flipping business in New Orleans?

At the same time.

No, not really. This is a stereotype, and it has some truth to it. But there is just as much truth the other way, too.

Some guys who win combat medals and have tons of experience are also embellishers and shit-talkers.

Nobody talked more shit than Richard Marcinko. Remember him? The "Rogue Warrior"? How about that Seal who lied and said he punched out Jesse Ventura? Why the hell did he lie about that, when he had all this real-world experience? The answer is because some guys are just raconteurs. They embellish shit for no reason. If more of you guys had actually been around these hard-core snake-eater types, you would know this. It's a certain breed.

How about that Navy seal sniper in Iraq? Turns out that guy also talked a ton of shit.

But they both did a lot of real-world ops. They both had a ton of experience.

What you guys don't get is that some guys just like to talk shit. They don't mean anything by it. And it doesn't mean they are "frauds."

As a final example, look at our president. No one lies, exaggerates, or talks more shit than Trump does. Most of this forum loves him. I despise him.

Yet here you have all these guys here, rushing to his defense, willing to rationalize and parse out everything he says in the most favorable light. Funny how the moral outrage is totally lacking when Trump lies, which is basically whenever his lips are moving.

RE: How to Join the French Foreign Legion
Forgetting about this guy in particular here, because who the fuck knows just yet; initially it seems odd that these fantasist guys would go to such length to concoct these stories yet make such elementary back story mistakes along the way.

However, eventually one realises that they keep changing their tunes like a fisherman changes his spot...they are waiting for the lie that excites the masses and garners the adulation and responses they crave. There's always one thing they hit on that whets the forum's appetite (and why I am always instantly suspicious when a new poster comes out of nowhere and suddenly is being treated like a rock star with significant rep points).

My grandmother (RIP) always said that "The hardest thing about being a great liar is that you have to also have an even greater memory".

Inability to delete or edit long lost posts is one of this place's secret weapons.

Perhaps you're right...your points are pretty good ones. Us Brits have our own Andy McNab (I think he's the one).

Bullshit just grinds me down...call me a cynical old bastard but I'm not sure I even believe most people when they tell me their name any longer.

My Grandmother (twice in a thread, she'd be proud) once answered me "I wasn't always like this...people made me this way" when I asked her why she was so negative and cynical all the time.

In fairness, he says after Katrina which could mean several years after. Still, seems very suspect. Great research.

RE: How to Join the French Foreign Legion
Nola has contacted me by direct message and has provided specific, tangible details about MIT that further reinforce my opinion that he spent significant time studying there.

As I said earlier, I believe he served in the Legion. His information matches to a T what other Legionnaires have said on the subject, and to me is credible.

As to the other employment info or life info, I can't confirm it. The discrepancies are probably deliberate, clumsy attempts to conceal his real identity. I give them little weight.

I think this is just one of those high-performance, odd, super-achiever types who had a hard time fitting into the drudgery of the modern world.

Wasn't Bear Grylls accused of "faking" his experiences or embellishing his stories? The list goes on and on and on. People need to open up their minds, stop being so rigid about everything, and learn to read between the lines.

Truth has many faces. Remember that.

Anyway, my opinion.

RE: How to Join the French Foreign Legion
Hello,

I am Nomadbrah.

I have a degree in physics and software engineering from MIT, where I studied while a Navy reserve, deployed twice in Afghanstian and Iraq, while I was a commercial diver and a captain on $46 million dollar yacths for 8 years, during which I found time to flip real estate in New Orleans, be a deep water diver with multiple certifications, a foreign legion vet for 7 years and now I am deeply involved in high level deals with top ranking Ukraine officials with US security clearance.

Nice to meet you.

QC,

I respect your opinion...I respect you as a scholar and as a man.

However, I would argue that "opening up one's mind and being less rigid" is the exact opposite of what most people should be doing...in most situations...at most times.

Naivety gets people killed, swindled and generally taken advantage of millions of times every day.

My opinion is to "Never take anything at face value" if you possibly can.

I'd say that truth, by nature and I dare say definition, has only one face, it's, well, its true one. Lies on the other hand do have many faces... Not talking about Nola here, just speaking generally - as I happen to believe, like you, in the veracity of the posts Nola has written on this forum.

By the way, I totally disagree with you on your disappointing, simplistic opinion above, of President Trump and his supposed "permanent lies", as it is obvious that people love or hate President Trump mostly because he says aloud the truths that nobody (in the leftist Establishment) wants to hear. It's obvious that no president in History has ever spoken the truth so openly and manly than D. Trump does, daily.

If I actually had to think of a president (or former prez) who says lies "every time he opens his mouth", I'd think of Soetoro or the illiterate Lula. Truth lies with the Trump, Temer, and Macris of this world, those who fight political-correctness and decadency.

Cot damn!

Funnily enough I have had my fair share of jive hucksters in Louisiana. Dudes lying off their asses about fish or deer they bagged. Dudes country as fuck, mouths wider than Lake Pontchartrain, and louder than a Louisianian woman.

Easier to ignore when you are over there and blow it off.

Habitual liars on forums like this one or in more serious environments like a corporate office just reek of omega incel virus stuff. It's like you know what kind of place this is, the stakes involved, or the decorum expected of you, but you still cannot resist that urge to bloviate? Why?

I have no idea if habitual/pathological liars are more common now than in the old days (could be since broken homes are a contributor), but I myself, find those types more depressing to me on a personal level, than anything some dumb feminist does to our society. I've seen coworkers being escorted from a workplace for doing stuff like this, leaving whole departments in a steaming funk, seen NTP and how he damn near tore a hole in the forum, and every time without fail, it puts an emptiness into everyone's morale. It's like walking in on your own brother and he is balls deep in a goat or some other animal. You cannot look at him the same way, yes, but when you walk away from a man you thought was kind of okay/normal like this (most people tell even a few white lies in life), it's like you lose some of that faith in the man next to you. Like how many holding the torch will be around after a while. Can you imagine how the last straight men in Sodom and Gomorrah, aside from Lot, may have felt?

I guess the demoralizing is just that. Demoralizing. No big truth I guess.

Whatever. That's enough internet for me today. Time to wrap up my day anyway.

Listen dragon, I think you got suckered. There's some weirdos out there.

Did you give this guy any money, or do anything for him?

RE: How to Join the French Foreign Legion
Don't worry Dragan, Kona misspells my name too.

It is an alpha trait.

His frame is so strong that other people's (fake) names are a distraction.



Kona: Thanks Mike.

Beta: It's Mark.

Kona: Whoops. Sorry Mike.

Did I miss something here from nola's original post where he was selling something? Is there a coded message in his long explanation of what it's like to join the French Foreign Legion that is hocking some new hair product or dating service?

If there are men on here willing to show up at the gates of the Legion to try joining the force, willing to put themselves through the ultimate test of mental and physical endurance in order to change their lives for the better, why would you go after the guy providing the descriptions of what to expect? What exactly is the point at the end of the day?

Yes I got a guy in 20's who is a newer expat in Serbia to pay my way there and all my room and board. I also demanded he pay for all my entertainment and I know this isn't a pay 4 play forum but I also demanded to be met at the airport with highend hookers in a party bus with legit license plates and reinforced windows.

Some of you guys bitch about picking up girls in Ukraine but I bet you can't out do that shit.

I'm hitting a new level now, expat con man game. Sooner or later I'll be having guys pay me to approach girls for me all over Europe. I'm one step away from optimizing my master game strategy which I'll set up a DVD package later for 299.99 or 6 easy payments 49.99.

Now I know that if I want to find Kona I just have to walk into every strip club on the island and shout "let me tell you guys about the time captained Elon Musk's skiff the 'Maltesian Falcon' for a decade or so between my various other projects".

After he beats me up I can introduce myself.

You just described the first step to joining the Polynesian Ethno State Foreign Legion. In fact Leonard, you can be the captain of our navy. The boats are either 180 feet, or 162 feet, or 150 feet. I'm not sure exactly, but they are long.

I fail to understand how I'm a shaky witness. Whatever...

I already discussed this earlier for what it's worth.

This is true but it’s brilliant. I’ve logged in 5 times just to keep up today.

RE: How to Join the French Foreign Legion
What's up Nola.

I just found out, that in addition to your incredible resume, you are also a dual citizen of Estonia and the US:

https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-41565...pid1785862

Could you let us know when during your life, did you spend 8 years in Estonia?

Those seeking to become Estonian citizens via naturalisation are required to fulfill the following criteria:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estonian_n...ralisation
Quote:applicant is aged 15 or over
resided in Estonia legally for at least eight years and, of that, have spent the last five years with permanent residence in Estonia
be familiar in the Estonian language. People who have graduated from an Estonian-speaking high school or an institute of higher education are assumed to fulfill this criterion without the need to take a full examination.
take an examination demonstrating familiarity with the Estonian Constitution
showing a demonstrated means of support
taking an oath of loyalty
Those who have committed serious crimes or are foreign military personnel on active duty are ineligible to seek naturalisation as an Estonian citizen.

Just so we're clear, the last sentence means that you could not, at any point during your time as a foreign legion or US navy, have accumulated those 8 years of residence in Estonia.

So I ask you Nola, and could you please reply in Estonian, at what point in your life did you live 8 years in Estonia?

Nola also mentioned that he speaks Russian. When you guys run out of questions I can test his Russian too. Native speaker here.
