ATs need not comment

Ok, so it would appear that this forum has some pretty dull topics in it, almost exclusively dominated by the endless AT/ATO types. Am I alone in thinking that

a. They are the dullest trade group going
b. That they are the only trade group that know how to use t'internet
c. That, despite claiming to be undermanned, they are the only trade group that manage to find time to comment on here regularly

I think so. Lets face it, being an ATO/AT is not sexy unless you a proper AT. 99% spend most of their dull, meaningless lives scuttling around large dark sheds only to appear periodically to quote some regulation or other and give a technical BS answer as to why a task can't be completed.

Finally, I once heard a particularly rotund, horse-headed salad-dodgin specky tw*t AT say "don't confuse your rank with my authority"

FCUK OFF and get a life and stop filling this site with drivel

PMT, late night, wrong side of the bed, jealous, failed the pre-select?

You could always retrade you know.

Failing that, try wind chimes and whale music.
Well Goon I must say I agree. Infact posting a 'controversial' topic like this, is bound to get the ATs snapping like trigger fish round the rotting carcass of an AT dipped in BBQ sauce and tossed (off) in to the river.
If you want to endlessly discuss AT trade matters or the wieght of an L96 fuse, (don't bother trying to correct my lack of ammo knowledge, cos we don't care) why not set up your own board. Much like we did for the toilets who constantly discuss RCB on the officers section.

Now watch Melchy throw track, dullness assured.

(Goon is right - I think ATs are the only trade with access to computers, let alone the knowhow to use them)
As we are having a go at the ATs. I had to instruct on the AT leadership courses in the late 80's. I am not sure what was more worrying; during their 5 minute presentations 10 chose the finer mechanical and physical properties of munitions and the 11th chose the manner in which one would have sexual intercourse with a water melon. Strange or normal which one is more scary?

Be still my beating heart.... I take it this thread was just meant to bait and not to be taken seriously?

I love being in the company of AT's (ATO's a different matter unless LE) Quick witted, mostly intellectual, informative, some quite good looking but mostly so used to being sh*t on that carp like this thread merely makes them chuckle. They rarely take life so seriously that they would be offended my some insecure internet user gobbing off that his opinion is obviously of worth and everyone should listen :0)

So on that note I will return to my bike push off in that direction >>> and wait with baited breath for the predictable replies :0)

Take care all and remember be safe ;0)
Bomb Disposal is a piece of piss. I saw it on TV. It's always the red wire. If only I had a job with 50 / 50 decisions. Bloody higher band as well, just like the chefs for re-heating food.
