      IS THIS WHY THEY CALL IT "ULTIMATE" FRISBEE?!?!

      9 months ago

      A few of the flightline mechanic classes were playing Ultimate Frisbee today. As Marines tend to do, we started getting a lot more physical than we probably should have...long story short, one of the dudes in my class fractured his tibia.

      Again, HE BROKE HIS FUCKING LEG PLAYING ULTIMATE FRISBEE. What in the actual fuck.

      It gets worse, too; because he has a contract as a crew chief, he may have to change jobs...in order to fix it, they'll need to put pins in his leg. That means he's not going to be able to fly. Which is pretty much the best part of the job.

      He was kind of a dick, but it's a really shitty thing to have to endure.

      The United States Marine Corps (and I assume the rest of the military as well) is a very unique place where you trust your co-workers implicitly with your life, but never with your stuff.

      Or your money.

      Or your sister. Especially not your sister.

      I'm guessing that Felix and Locus are just psychopaths who split the entire planet into two warring factions so they could each take a side and bleed the planet dry of its wealth and kill a ridiculous number of people.

      Kind of makes sense when you think about it. If they're actually still teamed up...otherwise, why wouldn't one have killed the other by now?

      It's not Hazing

      1 year ago

      As a junior enlisted Marine awaiting training, I have quite a bit of free time on my hands. It's wonderful, and I love having the opportunity to go work out and do my own thing, but inevitably, some of us are going to get bored.

      Queue the Indocs.

      The newer Marines to arrive on station, or "Indocs," are fresh out of Marine Combat Training (MCT) and essentially boot as fuck. Imagine a small child with no understanding of how the world works, and you've got an Indoc. It's nothing to be ashamed of--I mean, everyone had to be the new guy at some point--but they'll still be made fun of relentlessly for doing stupid shit when they should know better.

      Anyway, whenever Indocs move into the barracks, they are assigned a room at random with someone who's usually been on station for a relatively long time. Usually that individual will introduce the existence of "Indoc pizza night," where the Indoc has to buy pizza for all of the roommates who previously lived in the room...think of it as an offering of sacrifice to a vengeful deity.

      Sometimes, though, we get bored.

      For example: this weekend, one of my buddies got two indocs assigned to his room. He then had four other friends help him in convincing them that they needed to take the mattresses off of their beds and carry them downstairs to the Staff Duty Officer to serialize the mattresses.

      Poor fuckers carried those damn things all the way down the stairs and staged them, only to realize that 20 people were following them, laughing and filming the process.

      Nobody got mad; in fact, they thought it was pretty funny, and laughed it off with us. It's all in good fun.

      An honest hypothetical question for men

      in Forums > An honest hypothetical question for men | Follow this topic

      This is one I enjoy asking my buddies whenever we get really bored, and it tends to yield some pretty interesting/funny responses. There's obviously no right or wrong answer here, just opinions.

      Here's the deal: You have a girlfriend. You've been going out for a while, and things are great between you. Then one day you find out that she has cheated on you—last week, she had sex with another woman.

      The question: Are you mad?

      Go!

      "Sunny" Pensecola

      1 year ago

      I've been stationed in Pensecola, Florida for four days now. It's been overcast the entire time, and actually pretty pleasant. Considering I've been living in a squad bay with 50+ other Marines for the last four months, and now I get a dorm-style room that I only have to share with three people...things are pretty great here. I really can't complain about the food, and the PT is great. Especially since I got in terrible shape following Marine Combat Training (MCT). The only good thing that came out of hiking for 15km with a big-ass pack up and down hills is my ass looks fantastic.

      Anyway, I've got plenty of free time now...I get to catch up on TV shows that I've missed (including How I Met Your Mother, which was sad as fuck) and work on swimming (which is really fun). So yeah, bottom line: this shit is awesome.

      Mosquito Wings

      1 year ago

      I feel like I should tell a story or two from boot camp, since I haven't written anything interesting here in quite some time. Anyway, three days before graduation, I was promoted meritoriously to PFC, which means I get to wear the chevron rank insignias on my uniform. A lot of people refer to them as "mosquito wings."

      Anyway, I had just gotten mine pinned onto my cammies by my Senior Drill Instructor, and was feeling pretty good. Our platoon and two others were waiting for haircuts, and another new Marine remarked "oh hey, your chevron is upside-down." Thinking one of the backings for the pins had fallen out, I looked down to check it out, and the kid laughed. It was a stupid "haha, made you look" ploy. I smiled a little bit and kept walking.

      Two minutes later, another kid (a Private, whom I actually outranked) tried to pull the same joke on me...I guess they all were trying to make the PFCs look stupid. With a sly grin, the guy told me "hey dude, your Chevron's upside down!" I responded with "Oh that's funny, because yours is missing."

      The grin disappeared pretty quickly after that response, and I never got told that my chevrons were wrong again.

      I haven't been here in 3 months. Anybody want to fill me in on the good shit that I've missed on the site?

      Oh yeah, forgot to mention: two of the guys from my platoon in boot camp that were my closest friends were RT fans...they both heard me say "fight! Fight! Fight! Kiss, kiss, kiss..." and called me out on it. Fantastic.
