Joining the fray!

#1
Hello, boys and girls!

I must confess I've loitered around for some time now thinking whether to join or not, but after the recent plea for new members, I thought to myself, 'What the fcuk, why not?'.

Anyway, a bit about m'self:

Age: 53
Height: 6' 1 and a bit.
Weight: 185 lbs.
Eyes: Hazel, occasionally bloodshot, but with a bewitching glint when the sun catches 'em!
Inside leg: 34', not that it's any of your business.

Personal Stuff: I have never shagged a French bird and I have absolutely no interest in suitcases or underpants.

Now, I have noticed that, for some reason, new members are required to ask a bone question, so here's mine:

'What are your thoughts on the wave/particle nature of light and what affect does this have on your day to day activities?'

Answers in a plain brown envelope to:

And Be Quick About It.

'Later~'

Welcome Davy.

With regard the wave particle effect, your best bet is to pop into your nearest AFCO as that's the kind of question we get on a daily basis.

Only yesterday we had someone ringing "the Navy" to state a complaint about the length of time he waited to visit an Aircraft Carrier only to discover it wasn't open to the public that day. (Doubtless 1SL will enjoy reading the letter as he munches his toasted crumpets this morning, trying not to spray Mrs 1SL with tea as he reads the contents).

And two from me:

Seen in various photos some guys (and maybe even some females) sporting beards in the RN. Are you allowed to grow one then and if so what's the deal? Do you have a certain length of time to grow one and so on?

Where does the RN stand on people joining that smoke? Well aware it's 2008 and all that, however I do like a tug on a roll now and then...

Not entirely sure if you're tongue-in-cheek or not. If so, excuse (though if that is indeed the case then a little direction wouldn't go a miss).

Yes, you are (providing you actually CAN grow one). You have to apply to the Captain (if memory serves, I've never done it - not big on the facial hair stuff, might lose one of chef's specialities or so on and so forth), otherwise it's baby's arse for you. The lads tend to do it while at sea, because they can't be arsed shaving every day, as I'm sure you'll understand. It must be tidy - so it can't be hanging around about your sack, but I'm not sure on the actual length requirement.

Plenty of the lads and ladettes in the RN smoke, they'll restrict you during basic (probably in hope that you'll quit), but thereafter it's up to you to chuck it for yourself.

Without it we'd be travelling backwards! It affects our orientation (not mine, though, ofcourse; never had any problems walking in a straight line - even with a torch in the face!)

They were both quite serious questions. I was going to fall back on "only joking" if I had the urine extracted.

Good news on both questions then, thanks djmarkmclachlan.

The behaviour of light cannot be explained by it being either a waveform or a stream of particles. It is postulated that light is transmitted by wavicle, though there are some difficulties explaining this in relation to transmission of light through a vacuum (such as exists in space).

Regarding both Beards and wearing female attire on board HM ships.

The photograph was taken onboard HMS Cavalier in 1959, and shows our Chief TASI
with his Wanchai Burbs, sporting a set whilst displaying his feminine side.

And, even after all these years, those legs still do it for me.
