Some Guys On The 772 Are Unhappy

Remember the old adage "A bitching Sailor is a happy Sailor"? If that's true, the guys at this site must be the happiest guys in the Force. (Some of the stuff there is a little bit clever, actually.) One of the links from this site is to "SNOB's Corner". For those who don't remember, "SNOB" stands for "Senior Shortest Nuke On Board" and is the title given to the Nuke who's been on board the longest. Since most guys will tranfer before EAOS if they're going to stay in, that title is normally held by a nuke who re-enlisted in prototype and is getting out after his first boat tour; therefore, he's normally unhappy.) who has the least time remaining until EAOS.

I always thought it was "Shortest Nuke On Board" (nearest to EAOS) :)

On Tucson, it was the SNOT ("Shortest Nuke On Tucson")

Ustafish was "Shortest" as well - and no one who reenlisted on the boat was allowed on the list (dummies who re-up'ed in prototype were ok). We even had a spreadsheet on the LAN that autoupdated who the SNOB was.

However, the COB did not appreciate the SNOB beltbuckle that was passed down from SNOB to SNOB...

You're both right... it's "shortest"...

:) SNOB passdowns were a legend on my last boat. Drunken festivities, where only the non-reenlistees (or those personally approved in writing by the SNOB...said writing consisting of a chit on a chemwipe) were invited.

Our COB hated the SNOB buckle, too, but the EDMC stood up for it (oddly enough)...guess he figured it made at least one nuke happy...

Think you can get your EDMC to come to 772? Or any chief who has a clue? That would be nice.

He has moved on from what I hear (I'm not on that boat anymore, I'm enroute to the Olympia). He was a good guy, though...zany has hell, hardcore avid biker (and bigtime Lance Armstrong fan), was one of the biggest practical jokers on the boat. Made life in an otherwise sh*tty situation much better.

He had a *LOT* of sea time, though...was way overdue for shore. He came to us from the City of Corpus Christi, and went there from the Parche (I'm sure you know how much underway time they get...we did 88 days at the beginning of the Iraq war, and the EDMC and Leading MS, both Parche vets, had each done underways *DOUBLE* in length...and more).

Look on the bright side...EDMC is a set length tour, just like any other. He's not permanent...

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
