*A reptile (aka : lizard) with the characteristics of being one long body, moving by means of muscular movements within its body to "slither". Snakes come in a wide variety of different species, such as pythons, cobras, vipers, and many others; the largest is the anaconda. Many snakes are also poisonous to various species, including humans, because its fangs are rife with a powerful venom. The snake is thus a very fearful predator.

Special Air Service.
The name for England's most powerful, elite special forces squad, specializing especially in counterterrorism. History dates back to WWII, thus making this unit also specialize in battlefield tactics.
What makes the SAS so superior in countless aspects is that their men have experience. The training is, naturally, extremely rigorous and demanding, and to top it all off they put you through a jungle course that lasts for 7 weeks. If you make it through the SAS's hellish training, you EARN a beret (as opposed to the US Army Green Beret being given them).
The SAS is perhaps the second most powerful commando unit in the world, just slightly below the US Navy SEAL unit. But as mentioned before, the fact that the SAS are experienced could make their superior American counterpart look a little iffy in certain areas.
"There's also the german GSG-9 (Grenschutz Gruppe) & KSK (Kommando Speziel Kraft), the french GIGN (I forget what it means, which is no surprise because I bearly remember french-writing), the italian COMSUBIN (Italian Navy SEAL's), south-korean RKMC (Republic of Korea Marine Corps, aka : Invincible Marines), israeli Sayeret, japanese SAT (Special Assault Team), among COUNTLESS other special units......but the SEAL's and SAS are practically thee cream of the crop."
"Who dares, wins!"
PS : Actually, the german GSG-9 and japanese SAT are more homebound-operated....I think the SAT is homebound, I dunno, maybe further....but Germany uses the KSK for international capabilities. Just FYI.

*A type of military operation and technique involving a solo commando unit.
*To not wear underwear (the reason for this really revolves around the fact that commando missions are so intense that you supposedly shit your pants...thus if you don't wear underwear during a commando mission, you basically test yourself in the attempt to ensure that you don't crap yourself during the mission).
SOMEONE : "Looks like Dave's goin' commando today!"
ME (in camoflauge & aviator shades) : "Hey, I'm wearing underwear today."
