Other than being C-Webb's Birthday, March 1st is also the seventh aniversary of the start of Operation Anaconda. So I'll get to the depressing shit in a few days, for today the story of Canadian Sniper Corporal Rob Furlong. Try to look past the fact that Canadian Units are named after some gay shit, Corporal Furlong happened to belong to the third battalion of "Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry". (Manly yes, but I like it too) Corporal Furlong was able to put aside the "Fighting Tampon" moniker and recorded the longest sniper kill in histort from a distance of 2,430 meters, or over 1.5 miles.
