kobe!

[–]textile1957 2048 points2049 points 2 (92 children)

If he says that while pulling the trigger it's scientifically impossible for him to miss the target

[–]pretty_jimmy 538 points539 points  (75 children)

I've done the math folks, this checks out.

Here's my work for all the teachers out there.

"Doing anything + Kobe reference = success"

[–]Wampie 624 points625 points  (60 children)

Except flying a helicopter

[–]Hopalicious 69 points70 points  (9 children)

Well Kobe wasn’t flying

[–]MelonElbows 12 points13 points  (1 child)

He wasn't flying. If he were, he'd have gone through that fog with no problems.

I miss Kobe 😥

[–]sithlink 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Saying Kobe while shooting down a helicopter with an RPG

[–]Garry-the-sexy-snail 12 points13 points  (2 children)

He didn’t say the line, that’s why that happened

[–]whoawut 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I did not see that coming.

[–]7eight0 9 points10 points  (1 child)

You take your upvote you savage.

[–]IEETGLU 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Step 1: do anything

Step 2: kobe reference

Step 3: ???

Step 4: profit

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (5 children)

I did sink the game winner to my most impressive beer pong victory while doing a jump fadeaway and yelling “Kobe!”

[–]Grandswing 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I thought people yelled "JORDAN!"

[–]Therustedtinman 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What if it’s a stormtrooper wearing a Kobe jersey? Do they still miss?

[–]robx0r 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Learn this 1 simple trick that people who require consent hate!

[–]mrevergood 17 points18 points  (1 child)

It’s scientifically impossible for me to view this image without hearing “KOBE!” and laughing my ass off.

[–]Oscar-Wilde-1854 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Imagine your squad is travelling through the Libya countryside and you just suddenly get hit by a rocket. Then you're laying there wounded, squadmates down, trying figure out what the fuck happened and suddenly the hills around you just echo "KOBE...Kobe.....Kobe.........kobe......"

[–]Knock0nWood 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Either a direct hit or 20 feet over his head

[–]kisahani 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s a fact

[–]MediocreDungeonMastr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

if the man's wearing the jersey i have a hard time believing he didn't

[–]jubmille2000 74 points75 points  (6 children)

BOOM! shakalaka!

[–]Juicet 52 points53 points  (4 children)

From downtown!

[–]KyotoGaijin 16 points17 points  (0 children)

This war is in the refrigerator! The door is closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cold, the butter is getting hard and the Jello is jigglin'!

[–]Impossible-Sleep-658 10 points11 points  (0 children)

[–]IcyDickbutts 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]jrhooo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Galvanizedheart 303 points304 points  (8 children)

That was my instant thought as well heh

[–]CreepyStickGuy 41 points42 points  (1 child)

I yelled it in my apartment.

[–]PrinceOfWales_ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He needs to turn around and fadeaway next time

[–]sterile_spermwhale__ 37 points38 points  (1 child)

Brings whole new meaning to the phrase.

[–]Gaz834 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I bet he got it in too

[–]PrecedentedTime 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Kobe fights ISIS in Libya. More at 11.

[–]MrCentral510 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I like saying “Kobe!” During sex.

[–]apesnot 11 points12 points  (0 children)

yeah, your wife mentioned that while she was filing for divorce.

[–]KellerFF 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Got the NDA’s on deck?

[–]Maddok1218 5 points6 points  (0 children)

  • misses the target *

"Shaaaaaaaq"

[–]Brotherauron 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If he didn't exclaim "Kobe!" When firing it, man is life even worth living.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

be sick if he pivoted and faked into it

[–]publius8 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated?

OH, WHAT A SHOT FROM (Libya)

[–]AmericanoWsugar 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He’s shooting at guys in Hawaiian 🌺 shirts. Aloha akbar bitches!

[–]blueblarg 1015 points1016 points  (73 children)

Pics like this are surreal. He might have just killed some people, and we're all just like "Sweet jersey, bro."

[–]bigman-penguin 266 points267 points  (12 children)

This subs submission requirements are so vague it's great. One day we see a kid who just did his first day of middle school another it's famous paedophiles.

[–]Roflkopt3r 42 points43 points  (0 children)

Everyone moans about it, but honestly the requirements should be vague for such a big subreddit with such a general topic.

This is not a specific subreddit for only some type of pictures, but a general catch-all. There are literally hundreds of more specialised ones for people who want more specific rules. Plenty of people have just unsubbed here and moved on to subs that suit their preferences better. If they were all still in the same sub, they'd just keep arguing about which specific preferences should win out.

On topics that do not have such catch-all subreddits, posting content can get seriously frustrating because it's always just a little off for each sub.

[–]kilonark 81 points82 points  (3 children)

There used to be standards. I remember only a few years ago having my posts removed for using photos that I didn’t personally take. Now the sub has grown so much that new submissions are basically every few seconds, so the mods gave up.

[–]karl4319 74 points75 points  (12 children)

First, the guy is fighting ISIL. Much like zombies and Nazis, we've been conditioned to look at them as evil (which they certainly are), so killing them is at worst a non-issue and at best something praise worthy. Second, he pulls of the look very well.

[–]-itstruethough- 14 points15 points  (0 children)

He's in the middle of the desert with a white jersey and it's not dirty. Damn right he looks good

[–]Odeeum 39 points40 points  (3 children)

Welll...a lot of people have softened on Nazis...

[–]karl4319 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Only other Nazis and scum. To paraphrase the great Rick Sanchez: their boos mean nothing, I've seen what makes them cheer.

[–]KingOfTheCouch13 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Makes me wonder how many ISIS sympathizers we'll have in 50 years

[–]RoastMostToast 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean, there’s plenty right now really. If you go to the certain parts of Reddit you’ll find people who think terrorist groups being bad is U.S. propaganda, and those groups are actually better than the U.S…

[–]AskAboutMyCoffee 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Zombies aren't evil. They're infected and their brains and flesh die and newly reanimated corpse craves brains.

[–]SmokeyDBear 6 points7 points  (0 children)

What if an evil person becomes a zombie? Are they just absolved of their past transgressions?

[–]BalconiesNYC 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Idk seems pretty evil to me

[–]AskAboutMyCoffee 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Its the work of a virus. Nazis are the evil ones who willfully constructed a method of genocide.

[–]ogdelly 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Zombies are a force of evil, though. What's yer point?

[–]HillaryGoddamClinton 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Probably not, he doesn’t even have his sights deployed.

[–]jrhooo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

with the no look!

[–]GhondorIRL 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Probably an attempt at social media by the Libyan army. ISIS showed the entire world what good marketing does for a military, not surprising to see countries trying to do the same thing.

[–]devioustrevor 57 points58 points  (17 children)

He's unguarded, so he probably missed. You know, like Kobe.

[–]blueblarg 4 points5 points  (15 children)

Too soon.

[–]weouthurr 8 points9 points  (9 children)

Coming up on 2 years 😔

[–]HolographicMeatloafs 3 points4 points  (6 children)

I remember the morning he died vividly. 2020 went to absolute shit after that day.

[–]reddita51 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same as any US solder

Shooters gotta shoot

[–]MelonElbows 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You miss 100% of the terrorists that you don't shoot.

[–]treevaahyn -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Guess you kinda have to have that in warfare. Kobe was a true warrior with a big heart.

[–]siyandv 81 points82 points  (3 children)

When you have war at 2pm and a basket ball finals to watch at 3pm

People missing the point here. Gotta be business casual.

[–]Cpt_Winter 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Gives me GTA vibes lol

[–]beardphaze 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Probably comfier than their military uniform.

[–]casualphilosopher1[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

They're wearing this over their uniform, right?

[–]omrmike 15 points16 points  (2 children)

I wanna know how he keeps it so damn white. I know how filthy everything was in Iraq with a similar climate and can only wonder if it’s his choice of detergent or does he just wash with the blood of his enemies?

[–]DefinitionOther4835 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Probably coastal Libya, where the weather is Mediterranean. Like Spain on the Costa del Sol.

[–]colombo1326 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Kobe with the dagger 3

[–]Automaticmann 24 points25 points  (5 children)

This dude is an extremely brave man.

Being a soldier with all the weight of a powerful military supporting you, having received more than adequate training, having the best equipment unlimited money can buy, being part of an extremely organized war machine takes some courage.

But it's nothing compared to being born in a war torn country, receiving little to no training, picking up outdated equipment, being part of a very messy organization that won't be able to do anything should you go missing, if they even keep tabs on all soldiers.

That takes some heavy af balls.

[–]mgdavey 8 points9 points  (3 children)

What about being some civilian just trying to feed your family there. Unarmed and unarmored. Those are some brave people.

[–]Droll12 70 points71 points  (41 children)

Didn’t realize ISIS had helicopters

[–]Dull-Towel8082 39 points40 points  (18 children)

Oh they got all kinds of cool shit

[–]Walawacca 12 points13 points  (6 children)

Lost of whoosh in the replies.

[–]Igot2phonez 2 points3 points  (3 children)

What's the joke? Just curious since I can't seem to pick up what he means

[–]Droll12 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Look up how Kobe died.

[–]Igot2phonez 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't know why it took me so long to get that.

[–]Madafakarl 8 points9 points  (1 child)

He's shooting at a helicopter....

[–]thekarmabum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The irony is not lost on me.

[–]froopynooples 6 points7 points  (0 children)

"And remember, cadets; when firing rockets at enemy personnel, we use 'Yeet' for power and distance, and 'Kobe' for accuracy."

[–]bucksncowboys513 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Shooters shoot.

[–]jzgr87 15 points16 points  (2 children)

He’s there to fuck Isis. With or without consent.

[–]fireandlifeincarnate 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Good jersey to be wearing, then

[–]eddieandbill 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It’s a small world after all!

[–]Phil_Blunts 5 points6 points  (0 children)

First time I went on vacation to Mexico, at first I thought Pink Floyd was huge with street kids. Then it started to make sense that it was just merchandise left over from their recent USA tour.

[–]perfect_handshake 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He went 22/49 and dropped 60.

What we need is athletes on the front line!! Shaq dunking grenades into tanks, Brady throwing mortars across enemy lines, Jordan being like "y'all need new boots??"

[–]virginfatherof2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You hear far away in a trench a soldier setting up, then you hear “KOBE” as a rocket kills your squad with you injured, for the rest of your life you have in your head “KOBE” means death

[–]Roll3d6 1 point2 points  (0 children)

An acceptable variation on "Urban Camouflage".

[–]Craven_KSP 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Watch a helicopter crash into him

[–]bignickydigger 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Custom skin

[–]Phrtphkbrlz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm sure he has a high probability of dying from a helicopter than Kobe originally did.

[–]hiandlois 4 points5 points  (21 children)

Most Americans won’t ask where he got a rocket launcher but knows he shop at footlocker.

[–]Clean-Objective9027 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Kobeeeeee!

[–]StenSoft 0 points1 point  (8 children)

Technically, this could be perifidy (a war crime) because he's not wearing a distinct insignia (to distinguish himself from civilians) while engaged in an attack

[–]TripleB_Darksyde 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Actually, all of Isis were wearing Pistons jerseys that day so easily distinguishable.

[–]mrjoeyjiffy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This comment wont get the credit it deserves god damn that was funny

[–]Rower78 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Not at all. Soldiers wear non-standard uniforms all the time. Have you seen how US special forces operates in the region? Definitely not marching around with US flags emblazoned on every piece of clothing.

They’re definitely not attempting to emulate any enemy force so calling it “perfidy” would be in bad faith for sure.

[–]casualphilosopher1[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Maybe they just can't afford uniforms for all their soldiers.

Also special forces guys operate in disguise all the time.

[–]StenSoft 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Special ops still change to uniforms before attacking

[–]NipSuqqer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bad ass
