If that is your limit before you refuse to drink it again I feel your future must be with the surface fleet. Just what will you do when faced with after shave(over 50% alcohol) and Orange squash on a quiet Sunday in some shore base. Or drinking pints from a steaming bat that some stoker has worn for a 10 week patrol and that is before they stretch the crutch piece of some stewards nicks over the top of the boot to sieve all the lumpy bits out.
Submarines are not for you, unless they have become wimps as well?
I just don't drink red wine or stella. Never really liked either in the first place. But after getting so hammered I ran around a field in Orkney wearing nothing but my birthday suit. I also got my head jammed behind a toilet and passed out. I hate the stuff now.
I'll take a bottle of slivovka and trepinoviÄ, anyday.. I quite often partake in drinking the odd bottle of southern comfort or Jack Daniel's.
So I still drink more than a 17 year old should. :thumright:
Just follow these three rules of life my Sea Dad taught me many a year ago and you will make a good Skimmer/Submariner.
1. If it is alcoholic wet and paid for, drink it, you do not have to like it.
2. All ladies are nice just some are nicer than others. (Or men if you bat that way)
3. If you see someone running on your ship/boat stop them. If they will not stop, run with them as they obviously know something that you do not.
