iv read alot about..

I have read alot on different topics on here that you spend alot of your time being bored during basic...
Any genius idea's that i could take to basic, from some of the older but in this case maybe not wiser members of arrse....
or anyone else who has cured bordom with stupid stuff in basic..

I can see me getting a few laugh's from this thread.
Bored???!! Mate you will not be bored during phase 1. If you find yourself with nothing to do you'll just want to sleep!

Or is this a big fat hairy WAH?
i did get a bit of free time, usually about 1-6am in which your time is your own. Could always pass the time with a decent bit of porn, just dont leave it in your locker with your wnak sock for the locker inspection!
a wind up or battery powered radio will help to pass those hours of ironing and bulling! although i have heard stories of people who werent allowed radios and stories of Sandhurst where you can only listen to radio 4 for the first 8 weeks...
im old grieg, i know think you said!!! i dressed as old grieg one night for a party, you know white glove, tutu....i was arrested for being drunk and disorderly...

A bit off topic, but Old_Gregg, my mate has drunk baileys from his shoe.
Twice. ;)
Good lad!

Back on topic, take your ipod with you, I found listening to music makes boot bulling a lot less painful!
As does sniffing the polish.

A book :!: I find that sometimes just a few minutes or a couple of pages is relaxing and more to the point allows your mind to disconnect from green things even if it is just for a moment.

As a bonus if it has got some 'explicit' pages :hump: then you will be popular and in return for lending it out you can claim a couple of shandies when the occasion arises.
