    *wonders* Does the Air Force have the same sort of hazing we had in the Navy way back when? Do the new stripes get umm... tapped on?

    Congrats!

    More like hammered on. Every rank I've been through they've sent me through what we call the "gauntlet". pretty much where anyone (usually friends and co-workers) that is higher rank than you are lines up on each side of you, and you walk down the middle of them and they all "tac" you on. Then you turn around and walk the other way...when I got E4 i had 15 people on each side of me...my arms were black and blue for weeks after that lol....but its worth it!

    I dunno kelmo, there's just something a little ****-erotic about willingly walking a straight line while being pelted by seamen.

    I can't even talk about ****-erotic ****-sapiens that evolved from ****-erectus?

    How about homogenized milk? Homonyms? Homophones?

    That doesn't warm the cockles of my heart.

    Ooh, or tape blood packs under your shirt and a tiny packet of something red in your mouth.

    Halfway through, fall down and start spitting out red liquid while twitching.

    @ Freesly; Congratulations! I really do you think you should have a party at your house that holds some very unique rares that you posted about on rares column so that I can learn where you live so that I can camp your house!

    *sighs and wishes she had a Shipbuilding tool*

    :D

    There's a remarkable tolerance for things that aren't tolerated, everywhere you look.

    Don't get scared just yet, but in a year or three (depending on grad school) I'll be designing your planes/missiles.
