Submarine QOL

One of the favorite on-watch converstaions my watch section used to have was comparing the comforts of underway life to those of prison. Prison invariably came out ahead – I mean, they had cable, larger personal spaces, better workout equipment, even in solitary you get an hour in the fresh air a day, and you never end up eating dehi eggs made with dehi milk (not to mention the possibility of conjugal visits!). Well, add this to the list. The Brits are -really- accommodating to their felons.

Maybe they should talk to this guy (although he seems to have his share of detractors as well)

reflexology and aroma therapy? nothing new there. on seawolf, it was an almost sure thing that you could get the master chief to reflexively perform a head thumping massage by simply answering "you want it done? do it yourself" to any of his "suggestions".
and as to aroma therapy: my bunk had the vent duct from hell dumping into it. the scrubbers discharged to a takeup that dumped into my rack at the foot, there to be dispersed via standard compartment ventillation. if the a-gangers got the mix wrong, i had the aromatic therapy of massive doses of amines. and who can forget boat stink? anytime i get a whiff of it now, it makes me feel like i'm 21 again. now that's some powerful aroma therapy. bet rose water and lilac scents can't do that

Don't forget the aroma therapy of venting sanitaries inboard! Sometimes that alone started a reflex, the gag reflex.
