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. I know this topic is on Arrse, but it seems Old Blighty has just faced a bit of an earth tremor. I was on the bog at the time and thought I was getting spasms in my arse!

    You know when you've been sitting there too long when you manage to read a whole issue of FHM and you get pins and needles in your knees... :oops:
     
  3. Perhaps you need to reconsider your sex life if your ricker is spasming, try a little giving instead of take, take, take. :tp:
     
  4. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/7266136.stm

    There's nothing like a good movement first thing in the morning (as ask_then_order will, no doubt, agree).

    Earthquakes, eh. S**t happens.
     
  5. Very British for not a lot to happen, yet its a major thing! ;]
    I slept right through it, sounds like I missed out all the fun!
     
  6. It was only Scotland trying unsuccesfully to shake itself ree of England again
     
  7. This was scarey I live like only a few miles from the center of it
    Just drifting off to sleep then I thought my whole house was coming down!!
     
  8. Went to bed early due to east bound jet lag. Thought I had a dream about an earthquake. In the morning turned radio on and found it was real. (Now I am wondering about the bit when I saved Eva Green from the rubbble and what a greatful Eva did for me.) I asked Mrs DD if she had felt the earthquake as she had been down stairs catching up with corrie on sky plus. She said that she thought it was me going to the bathroom. Oh, that the bit about Eva was true!
     
  9. ROFL!
     
  10. Another earthquake? Will Shas blame me for this one too? ;) Perhaps they think I'm G_d? o_O
     
  11. You now live in a Quake Zone, Area A,B,C, please send increased insurance payments to avoid your policy being null and void. Thank you.
     
  12. You means that you can insure against acts of a non-existent God? :bball:
     
  13. sorry boys and girls.. was out for a jog.. will make sure to put out a warning next time.. :thumright:

    URGENT - GLASGOW EARTHQUAKE APPEAL
    AT 00.54 ON WED 27th Feb 2008 A MAJOR EARTHQUAKE HIT MEASURING 8.8 ON THE RICHTER SCALE EPICENTERED ON GLASGOW.

    Victims can be seen wandering aimlessly muttering:"Ah wiz shittin' masel",
    "Ah need some jellies" "Ah need a fag and a Cally Spesh". The Earthquake
    decimated the area, causing approximately £30 worth of damage, with the
    exception of the Possil area, where approx. £375,000 of improvements were made.

    Untold disruption and distress was caused. Many were woken well before
    their giro arrived. Several priceless collections of mementos from the
    Balearics and Spanish Costas were damaged. Three areas of historic and
    scientifically significant litter were disturbed.

    The cone fell off the head of the statue of the Duke of Wellington outside
    the Gallery of Modern Art. That on his horse Copenhagen, managed to remain on the horse's head, albeit at a jaunty angle. Thousands are confused and bewildered, trying to come to terms with the fact that something interesting has happened in Glasgow.

    One resident, Mary-Alice McGregor, a 17 year old mother-of-three said: "It was such a shock, little Chelsea came running into my bedroom crying. My youngest two, Tyler-Morgan and Shauni slept through it. I was still shaking when I was watching Trisha the next morning."

    Apparently though, looting did carry on as normal. The British Red Cross
    have so far managed to ship 4000 crates of Buckfast Tonic Wine to the area to help the stricken masses. Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have found large quantities of personal belongings including benefit books and jewellery from Elizabeth Duke at Argos.

  15. Where do we pay the mony into?
    Do they take plastic or cash?

    I am going to organise a collection locally for these poor folks,we've already collected some fresh warm horse dung donated by the local stables.
    Would they accept TK Max clothing or must it be from Primark?
