Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. How many ARRSE users does it take to change a light bulb?

    • 1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed
      14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently
      7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs
      27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs
      53 to flame the spell checkers
      41 to correct spelling/grammar flames
      6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ...
      another 6 to condemn those 6 as anally-retentive
      2 Techs to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"
      15 know-it-alls who claim *they* were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct
      156 to email the COs complaining that they are in violation of their "acceptable use policy"
      109 to post that this Board is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to The REME board
      203 to demand that cross posting to the Int Cell, Seniors, and OTC board about changing light bulbs be stopped
      111 to defend the posting to these boards saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts *are* relevant to this group
      306 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty
      27 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs
      14 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's
      3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to ARRSE which makes light bulbs relevant to this Board
      33 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"
      12 to post to the board that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy
      19 to quote the "Me too's" to say "Me three"
      4 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ
      44 to ask what is a "FAQ"
      4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"
      143 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"
      1 ARRSE lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again....
