|1.||steely eyed poser|
A term used to describe someone who knows the lingo of all the real warriors, killers, and violence slingers... but has never really actually lived that lifestyle. One who has probably got some buddies or some mundane connections to that world and uses those befuddled connections to gain just enough knowledge to sound a little credible on the subject to others like him on blogs and such. The term is a play on words of the phrase " steely eyed killer" which is a way to desciribe those who are or who have lived the life of performance of violence and warriorship on demand.
Vague martial arts credentials, hazy claims of SEAL knowledge, LARPING and queer adoration for all things spec ops (without actually being spec ops) are definitely signs that you are dealing with a steely eyed poser. Or a 14 year old boy.
Blogger A- " Wow I did this blog. This guy is real high speed and he sounds just like those guys from the Predator movie. A real steely eyed killer, ya know?
Blogger B- "No, I bet he paints dolls and SEAL action figures. Probably more like a steely eyed poser."

Any male, protective provider capable of violence against those who would harm the weak, but not overly quick to "bring it."

Royal Marine (British Special Forces). Known to each other as "Royal" but the rest of the British Forces know them as bootnecks. This nickname is derived from them cutting the top from a leather boot and wearing it like a modern neckbrace to stop sailors cutting their throat while they guarded officers on board British sailing ships in the days of old.
"Don't anoy those Bootnecks over there unless you want to wake up with a crowd round you!"

Royal Navy Submariners eat their young, oh yeah, watch out skimmers...
A seafood restaurant that loses its magic the further you move inland. As you move toward the geographic center of the continental United States, you will be prompted by a sign on the side of a dubious brick compound to 'bang on window with spoon for service.'
Once the eurasian bandit working the window has taken your order, he'll either emerge with a bag full of mercury poisoning or a fistful of barbiturates, depending on what keywords or phrases you may have unwittingly uttered.
I went to Flipperz and hardly even felt the induced sense of impending doom that comes with eating tainted flesh! It barely tasted like oil spill at all!
