Subject: My chance to finally serve on a flat top...
DropBear    10/25/2009 4:12:27 AM
Did the usual daily sweep of my email inboxes and I noticed that the Navy had sent me a lengthy personalised advert and info on starting my swabbie career. Surprised by this ( I would rather join the RAAF given the choice of the three services)I looked closely at the accompanying images of smiling happy sailors and it occured to me that the rank insignia was different. Lightbulb moment...it was the USN and not RAN. Ok, so I am not sure whether they really want this Aussie to wave the Stars and Stripes, but any chance I have of getting to hang out on a deck amidst SuperBugs, then I am willing to give it a go. I guess it is a change from those emails where we are asked to help out cash strapped Nigerian princesses in exhile. Oh well...anchors away :)

Your pulling the piss aren?t you DB....It's not April the 1st mate....http://www.strategypage.com/CuteSoft_Client/CuteEditor/Images/emwink.gif" align="absmiddle" border="0" alt="" />. If you are not bullshiting remember that the deck of a carrier is a VERY young man's job + US servicemen get paid shit.

 But if you really are a sucker for punishment good luck to you http://www.strategypage.com/CuteSoft_Client/CuteEditor/Images/emthup.gif" align="absmiddle" border="0" alt="" />
 
P,S Remember the RAN is going to have (admitted a lot smaller) flat tops in the not too distant future.

I never got an offer from the USN but a couple of weeks after a very blurry new years I did receive a recruiting pack from the Royal Marines.

The older my daughter gets the more concerned I become about just that sort of thing http://www.strategypage.com/CuteSoft_Client/CuteEditor/Images/emcrook.gif" alt="" /> ... can not convince her that Myspace and Facebook are not private, let alone secure and do you think she believes me when I tell her that a disturbing proportion of teenagers on line where actually born in the 50's and 60's.....
 
Thank god for administrator controls and passwords! (can you still buy chastity belts?)

The running joke there always was,
when you have a son, you only have to worry about one boy in the neighborhood,
 
but when you have a daughter, you have to worry about all the boys in the neighborhood...

I can't even use that excuse! The buggers just sent it to me out of the blue. That is the thing that is so puzzling.

You can keep telling yourself that dropbear, but we all know you want to come over to the dark side
