    Breaking news on BBC. No link yet.

    That'll make some matelots happy. I was always under the impression that there were sound scientific radiological reasons why women couldn't serve on pigboats.
  2. Washing up wont do itself
  3. 'cos all Sailors are queer!
  4. That's just an old poofter's tale. I have it on perfectly good authority that some of them are bisexual.
  5. My mum been talking shit again?

  7. Speaking of which, where's Ravers these days?
  8. People are subject to more radiation on an aircraft than they would be on a nuclear submarine. The real reason was the effect of carbon dioxide on unborn children.

    I suspect that the real reason has nothing to do with CO2, or offering women equal opportunities and all to do with too few volunteers for submarine service. It's the primary reason they sent women to sea in the first place.

  10. Will they force women to take pregnancy tests before sailing?
  11. I doubt it..... do they force sailors to take bumnancy tests before sailing ?
  12. Yes, yes they do!
  13. Dunno what the effects of a stretched hoop are on combat effectivness but if a bird was Keith Cheggers when setting off on a 6 month cruise then she would have to be taken off ship at some point which means sub leaves patrol area to either get her airlifted or to a dock. Either way the lads get fucked about big time
