imagine actually writing this imagine writing this and thinking that it's clever

An age old question: what does /b mean? What does this letter have to do with the abbreviation of local OOC? /b = local? No. /b = OOC? No.

brackets.

The B stands for brackets.

Ciao.

Dear Mickey,

Recently I received your message about your ' scarface/blade runner type soundtrack'.

I'd just like to say that I was absolutely gobsmacked when I heard it. Just great. Keep up with what you're doing, man. Maybe one day you will be on Spotify.

I got the package yesterday, and I was real grateful. We are low on C-rations, and there is hardly any water.

We are supposed to be out in the bush for 4 days, but it ended up we're still out here. It's been about 2 weeks now. We are guarding this road. Making sure no VC get anywhere near the 1st Battalion, 1st Marines area, (1/1). Every afternon I've got gate watch. We all take turns from dawn to dusk. We just have to check out the ID's of the civilians going up and down the road. If they don't have an ID they are suspected of being a VC. The gate is a big cement grave. Our whole perimeter is set up in a big graveyard. In fact, our bunker is on top of a cement grave with sandbags on all sides. On one end we built a little hootch, and our machine gun is set right on top where the body was laid. I think that's pretty cool. Inside the hootch there is the tombstone with all kinds of Chinese writing on it. At night we have a candle burning inside to see by.

Last night I went on a fire team-sized patrol, a fire team consists of 4 people. The leader was some corporal who I don't feel safe with at all. He got here in Vietnam the same time I did, but he was put in charge right away because he's a corporal. He goes by the book on everything. If we get hit we aren't supposed to fire back, only on his command. I'd rather be with somebody that has a little more time in country, and knows what to do.

In about 5 months I will be the machine gunner for this squad, and in about 7 months I will be team leader. All the other guys in this gun team will be going home around the same time. Now I'm just the last ammo humper, but I don't mind just as long as I gradually learn my job.

Soon I will have T-I-C, (time in country), and the experience. That's what counts here.

I'm learning this language ok now, but the Marines only know a few phrases like "come here," "go away," "let me see your ID," etc; but I want to learn more than this.

Mom, you were wondering what kinds of birds they have here. They are beautiful, nothing like in the USA. There's swans, and big white birds with long necks, and ordinary birds with crowns on their heads, and then other birds that look like sparrows, only half their size.

I'm glad to hear you had snow. I kind of wish it would snow here once in awhile.

Enclosed are some pictures. Could you save them for me? They'll get ruined over here. You can have the ones of me if you want. Also enclosed is part of a diary I started when I first got here. I'd better go now.

Yours faithfully,
Your husband

Rofl.


Yes, /b is when something gets outta hand or to say something out of a scene. There's brackets around it because it's telling you that it is OOC.

I can only say that LS-RP is a role play server if everyone stops using /b and actually starts role-playing everything.

It would be /pm, and if they /blockpm it would be /report until they get kicked for spamming.
