Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Gangway arms ?.

    ''The British and other ambivalent drinking cultures believe that alcohol is a disinhibitor, and specifically that it makes people amorous or aggressive, so when in these experiments we are given what we think are alcoholic drinks - but are in fact non-alcoholic "placebos" - we shed our inhibitions.''

    BBC News - Viewpoint: Is the alcohol message all wrong?
  2. From the same report ...

    "I would make sure everyone knew that even a mere three cups (six "units") of coffee "can lead to anti-social, aggressive and violent behaviour", and sexual promiscuity, thus instantly giving young people a powerful motive to binge-drink double espressos, and a perfect excuse to behave very badly after doing so".

    Fukced if I know how they arrive by this ... being one who drinks more than the prescribed 3 cups a day and all it does is make me go for a p*ss every hour and gives me heartburn!
  3. Rumour has it that Kate's report was funded by alcohol companies. It would explain a lot.
  4. Aye, to focus on different groups and change their marketing strategy ?, but as she advises gov aswell they could be pissing on their own chips.
