so we start calling Windy Junior?
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Yep. She was being towed to be used as a target when she ran aground. Navy ended up using her as target where she sat.

I'm guessing when you surface a $2.4 billion sub into a tanker you aren't passing the Perisher course.

^ That's like taking Dad's Ferrari out for a joyride and busting it up.  :2funny:

Funny how the article says it's "not clear" whom was 'driving' at the time...I'd imagine it was the trainee captain, no? Someone screwed the Yorkshire pooch on that one.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Master Chiefs are sneaky, dastardly, and snarky miscreants who thrive on the tears of Ensigns and belly dancers.   Admiral Gerry Bogan.
