This thread has gone waaayyyyy off topic
I always loved this one.....
A Marine and a sailor go to a diner for lunch one day. After they order their food, they both get up to go use the head. When the sailor finishes taking a piss he goes over to the sink and proceeds to wash his hands but the Marine just zips up and goes back to the table. When the sailor gets to the table he looks at the Marine and say's "In the Navy they teach us to wash our hands after we take a piss." The Marine looks back at him and say's "Yeah, well in the Marines they teach us not to piss on our hands."
I can't ignore posts anymore. Oh well.
Show the comment I left when giving neg rep points. I do not believe I left anything. Post a screenshot.
You are one of a kind mudbug. You are the ONLY one who upon receiving nagative reputation points comes whining in PM's saying stuff like "You need to get laid" "You need a life" "You are a *****".
FightinTiger does not PM me about it
tirk does not PM me about it
MarineTiger does not PM me about it
KTeam does not PM me about it
islstl does not PM me about it
In the meantime, it is you who is whining in private messages over pixels on a message forum. A serious reality check is in order for you.
By the way, anyone ever notice that when someone is given positive reputation points they never say anything about it?
Indeed. KTeam/MarineTiger style. :wink:
You mean KTeam, Gradin?
Yes, sorry. I have not quite learned your forum name yet. :grin:
If it helps you remember my actual name is Karl Team...
And the hits just keep on coming.....
One reason the Services have trouble operating jointly is that they don't speak the same language.
For example, if you told Navy personnel to "secure a building," they would turn off the lights and lock the doors.
Army personnel would occupy the building so no one could enter.
The Air Force would take out a three-year lease with an option to buy.
Marines, on the other hand, would assault the building, kill all inside, and defend it with suppressive fire and close combat.
Marines and the police
The following is supposedly a true story relating a situation that actually occurred in Los Angeles.
The Marines were backing-up LAPD on a call that someone had broken into a store.
At the scene, the cop told the Marines to "cover" him as he approched the store (to police, "cover" means to point your weapons in the direction of the threat, to Marines it means lay down a base of fire!).
The Marines promptly laid down a base of fire. The Marines fired 178 rounds before they stopped shooting. The thief, probably a little scared at this point, called 911 and reported, "They're shooting at me!".
The National Science Foundation announced the following study results on U.S. military recreation preferences:
Sport of choice for Marines: bowling.
Sport of choice for Sailors: football.
Sport of choice for Soldiers: baseball.
Sport of choice for Coast Guardsmen: tennis.
Sport of choice for Airmen: golf.
Notice how the farther down the list you go, the smaller their balls get.
