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. Site is good again , all sites go through peaks and troughs and we are on the up at the mo , thanks to all regular posters , to those who regularly mank about the site saying it is dead I would suggest you carry on with your pithy comments on ARRSE where they will be 'liked' by all the civvy no marks that infest our bigger brother/founder.

  2. Contacted the site owners yesterday asking if they had any plans to shut RR and move it over to our elder brother/founder ARSSE , have cut and pasted their reply below.

  3. Reading between the lines. They don't want the Navy Net mob polluting ARRSE
  4. This rumour seems to pop up on a regular basis but happy quash it again. We like the two sites the way that they are.

  5. ks and troughs are patterns that are developed by the price action experienced by all securities. As we know, prices never move in straight lines, whether in an uptrend or a downtrend.

  7. So are we all. It is essential,l however, to regard his contributions, that you possibly agree with --the same good grace as those you disagree with ." If I can keep your head when those about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you........

    Now in English please.
  9. If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;

    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
    And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

    If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;

    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
    And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools:

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;

    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch,
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;

    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

    '' So are we all. It is essential,l however, to regard his contributions ''

  11. If you were ever a member of Her Majesty's Armed Forces having whatever number of brain cells that required and you find Rudyard Kipling --"What the Fuckish" Then all is lost.

  13. He was and I concur with Stirl, he wasn't questioning Kipling, just the gibberish you preceded the quote with.
