LOL, cuz sometimes I do to get it right in my head.
Greasy haired old man.
why don't they just call it right side and left side?
Sure, didn't get laid because of your dog.
I dunno, that would make total sense to me.
How about Longitudinal Frame numbering, isn't that shit crazy?
Who in the wide wide world of fucks are you talking to?!!
Dave's a ChiCom sympathizer
OK, actually the longitudinal frame number system does kind of work well.
When I went to work out on the Aircraft Carriers I found that I was able to navigate those ships with absolutely no problem at all. Once you realize that it's all about which deck you're on, you're good.
Says the guy who probably never dropped below the 04 level.
Old ships used to have steering oars. Starboard is derived from a word meaning steering. Most sailors are right handed, so steering oars were set to the right of the stern. When in port, they tied up with the left side toward the dock, as to not fuck up the steering oar. Thus, starboard and port.
Because then it would change depending which end of the boat you were facing, starboard is always starboard no matter what
Sounds like someone needs their horse to be a pal and return the favor with some hand release.
Row well and live 41
Well goddamn, check out the big brain on Brad.
That and 2.25 will get you a big cup of coffee at Starbucks, congrats on the useless information stored in your brain.
Don't be a cunt Dave.
Shouldn't right of the stern be called Ralph?
My name isn't Brad, but you're old and senile so I can look past that. I remember that shit from bootcamp. That information is absolutely relevant.
You want to know what is relevant to me?
Getting the fuck off the ship before they pull the brow. Cuz I ain't going out there!
