I can porobably agree to that. It's really just how we've come to describe their kanguage over the years. We hear anything and everything in thr book at school. And I'd rather not describe the content at all, it's that bad...
Does my history teacher count? He used ti be in the Navy, I think.
No group of people are worse than a bunch of sailors. There is not enough soap in the world to wash our mouths out with. There is not a rowdier crowd in a bar than a crew that just pulled in from a cruise. There was a common belief (back in the day) that if you were not in medical within a week of pulling out of port to get treated for an STD, you just weren't man enough.
The only group of people that may out-do sailors are the Marines, and we corrupt the hell out of the ones that are onboard for guard duty.
While we're on the subject, my preliminary application to the Naval Academy was accepted. :p
Workin' on getting my nominations now.
Edit: In hindsight, that might seem like rubbing Ravenstein's face in it, which was not my intention, I promise.
Congratulations, sir. The Naval Academy is a fine, fine school, regardless of if you stay in or not afterwards. Make sure that if you do go, pay your respects to John Paul Jones there, the Father of the US Navy. I have my fingers crossed for you
