Things I have learned on the Bremerton
« on: Jun 15, 2008, 12:07 »
These are some of the things that I have learned by personnel experience, seen it happen, or have been randomly informed of by my chain of command.

l. Hanging an eviscerated squirrel at the watertight door is not an approved method for stopping NRRO monitors.
2. I am not the system expert for the core ejection system.
3. The EDMC did not serve on the USS Turtle.
4. "Keel hauling" someone is no longer approved.
5. 2190 TEP oil is not a good personal lubricant.
6. Telling junior personnel to find something and "put your d*** on it" is not a better method of training.
7. This is especially true in the RC.
8. Official correspondence to the captain does not need to be ended with "Until we meet again."
9. I am not allowed to shorten any officer's name to Dick.
10. Senior Chiefs do not do "Drive-by tasking". Just ask them, they will tell you.
11. I am not allowed to call Doc "Nurse."
12.
13. An equal opportunity survey should not be used as a joke checklist. Ever.
14.
15. A Beer Drinking qual card is not command endorsed. (I actually received one. Theoretical Knowledge included a discussion of a dark and ta).
16. Fields day is not to be referred to as "Nap-nap time"
17. Going in-depth into an officer's questionable family tree is not allowed.
18. The 2MC announcing system is not my personal paging system.
19. The movie game cannot be played on the 2JV phone system.
20. Playing hide and seek with NRRO monitors is frowned on.
21. "Your mom" is a perfectly acceptable answer to any question, at any time, posed by anyone.
22. The morning brief is not a good place to "try and sober up."
23. A hip flask is not allowed on watch, regardless of what it is filled with.
24. The shaft seals do not need to be feed.
25. Bringing a sloth onboard a submarine to live is not allowed.
26. Referring to another submarine as "The guys who keep hitting s***" is rude.
27. NEVER let any officer touch any tool.
28. No one on any submarine has ever had a threesome with two hot chicks, regardless of what they say.
29. Trying to make a JO giggle while making announcements is frowned upon.
30. 
31. Spin the bottle is not a good underway game.
32. Every coner could have been a nuke.
33. Shift work is the only way to make nukes happy.
34. Nukes hate shift work.
35. How many nukes have had to reenlist during shiftwork?
36. I am not the lone ranger so an EB red tape mask is not part of my watch uniform.
37. "Repel borders" is not an effective way to ward off NRRO.
38. The M-div stare is the most powerful force known to man



i would like to post more but i am unsure of what could be considered inappropriate if a moderator can contact me i would be glad to let them preview it. oh and by the way this was meant in good fun

Remember who you love. Remember what is sacred. Remember what is true.
Remember that you will die, and that this day is a gift. Remember how you wish to live, may the blessing of the Lord be with you

Somebody get this NUB a "Principles of Comedy" qual card ASAP.  He is obviously DINQ in that section.

32. Every coner could have been a nuke.

Ain't that the truth! My favorite continuation of that;

Coner to me: "I could have been a nuke, but I was smarter than that."

That isn't just true about Coners, it goes throughout the Navy that deals with Nuclear Power.  The best ones were the ones that claimed that they scored too high to be a nuke on the ASVAB yet when I looked at their ASVAB they had waivers for too low of scores.

It pretty much was
"I could have been a nuke, but __________________<- Insert reason such as "wanted to be a cook" or "thought that AO school would have been harder" or etc, etc.

I was the paperwork pusher in boot camp so I got to see everyone's ASVAB score and such.  Believe it or not(I am walking on air), there were some guys that went SEaL but qualified to go to Nuke School.  Just shows the Navy takes all kinds.

...You might be walking on air, shipmate, but it doesn't sound like your integrity or morals are of the kind I would trust with any of my paperwork..better to keep to yourself such information, instead of honking your own horn, and making anA$$%ole out of yourself...
