Great Quotes (definitely not PC)

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. Noticed my signature got some recognition :wink: so I thought I'd post the whole of the quote I got it from.

    Firstly you must always implicitly obey orders, without attempting to form any opinion of your own regarding their propriety.
    Secondly, you must consider every man your enemy who speaks ill of your king;
    and thirdly you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil.

    Aboard the Agamemnon, 1793

    Totally un-PC never get away with it these days but refreshingly still rings true after 200+ years.

    Let's hear see some more of the same from youse lot. It's time for a backlash against the left wing pinko liberals that seem to rule today's society. :twisted:
  2. Softlad, it reads as quite reasonable to me! Totally un-PC: nah - it reflects reality.

    What is more interesting is to look at the similarities in ideology between the Nazis, the Hitler Youth, contemporary Poland and the quiscence of Rome to acts performed in its name which it claims to oppose - as it claimed to do so in the 1930s onward. Much less PC and much more controversial! The real and growing conflict is between democratic liberal values and conservative theology, especially in the Mideast, US and within the EU. Another World War is gradually formenting... This whole topic is VERY UN-PC. Wishful thinking by the semi-secular democracies (like Britain) will not alter that.

    Oops, apologies for straying off topic a bit! :oops:
  3. Nah I can't see anything wrong with it either except that it misses out a few groups worthy of attention ...If we're gonna be un PC then lets hate Frogs, Krauts, Ragheads Pakis and our ethnic black cousins from Africa

  17. Fearless, Copehagen, sometime in the mid 80s. The Royals used to do PT on the flightdeck, and much of it involved running around in a big circle. They seemed proud to be able to take the pain after a heavy run ashore.

    One of the bootie games was to go ashore and get gripped by a person of the same sex. The idea being to get them to buy drink all night, then shoot though when enough had been drunk.

    On the morning in question one of the Royals rushed to the centre of the running circle and demanded that he make a huge confession to the boys.

    At the top of his voice he announced in a broad Glaswegian accent:

    "Last night I sold my arse!"

    It turned out he had one too many drink and fell asleep - and suffered the consequences. Having made his confession to the boys however, the exercise continued and absolution was given.
  18. Somewhat surprisingly, the French were quite active behind the scenes stopping the Argentines obtaining more Exocets during the war, although this may be because it was Mrs T alluded to nuking Buenos Aires if they didn't.

    They can hardly be blamed for selling the Arge stuff in the first place - after all, it wasn't the French that sold them the Hercules or the Santisima Trinidad.

  19. Leave it to a girl to take the fun out of sex discrimination.
    Bill Watterson (1958 - ), Calvin in "Calvin and Hobbes
