    • I feel sorry for chickens. They are under threat of being eaten from the cradle to the grave.. Oh, but they are tasty, and so good fried. I'm not sure where the fingers come from though. I have never shook a chickens hand. I hear they like to dip snuff, and are plotting to take over the world. Good thing there are Crisco and Martha White... Little Debbie, now she is a great woman.. Her personality is a little cardboard.. ADHD is just a term people use when they can't keep up with what's going on. Turkey Spam is my favorite.

                • G'day everyone.
                  Long time no postie! Cheffie have you ever thought of moving to Australia, getting Australian citizenship, joining the Royal Australian Navy and posting to HMAS CRESWELL so that I can have some food with a bit of flavour to it. The food in the navy is pretty good... it is just really bland because they have to cater for all tastes.
                  I finally got enough leave this easter to warrant coming all the way home so I have been enjoying my family's curries.
                  I was a bit dissappointed with how brief the navy's firefighting training was. I was looking forward to it quite a bit but it was over before it really got started. It was interesting learning the different style that they use.
                  Well I had best go now, I have to catch up some mates.

                  For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

                  • Patty, I hear ya on the minimal shipboard firefighting training. Not sure about you guys, but when I went through the Damage Control School, we spent three days. One in the classroom getting the basic theory of "This is Fire".... and another day learning how the B-gear and CHEMOX work, with close confinement work. Crawling through blacked out mazes and such, and the last day was live fire training. That was pretty kuul. But knowing now what I know, I would have told them to Stuff It - the building they had for a trainer was..... ummm..... sub-standard. Ya thats a good word to use. We have a brand new multi-million dollar trainer now all natural gas fitted and layed out like a real ship's engine room. Never seen it, but thats what they tell me.

                    • The incentives to fight and quickly extinguish a shipboard fire are just not fully appreciated by landlubbers.

                      You can usually walk or crawl away from a dry land fire gone bad. But a fire at sea is a whole other story.


                      So, just how long can you tread water?

                        Only as long as the air in your CHEMOX lasts. But on a serious note, you are correct Chief, the incentive to kill an onboard fire is pretty high. Secondary to that, where the heck is all that water going, and how fast can we get OUTSIDE the ship? And how fast/how well can we desmoke/ventilate is about 3rd on the list. Casualty evacuation falls in there somewhere - that was my job onboard, mostly.

                        There is something to be said for what I always refer to as the "#uckoff Factor". As a ground soldier, when things go bad you can kinda sneak away (if that is your decision) and do a little E&E. At sea, you are 100% at the mercy of the Captain and his actions. Once the ship goes into combat you are there for the duration, cuz that first step over the side is a real dang wet one.

                        • I am not a fan of the all natural gas simulator we have. It doesnt recreate the same heat levels and it has almost no smoke. Some diesel and straw would work better in my opinion.
                          The one challenge I did find interesting was the minimal use of water in containing a fire. No use putting the fire out at the expense of capsizing the ship.
                          As with all things; they are getting a huge upgrade soon but it is too late for me. I will have to wait for my refresher course or my advanced course. They are also upgrading the flood control simulator. It is apparently going to be on hydraulics so it can tilt as the scenario evolves.

                          • Navy fire training was a long time ago and there was no flooding control simulator, but the fire fighting was fuel oil in a concrete building simulating the fire room and /or engine room.
                            Lots of smoke and heat. PPE? Tuck your trouser legs into your socks, Mark V OBA and lets go get it.

                            But what I really wanted to discuss was the boneless, skinless chicken mentioned a few posts earlier.....

                            How do they survive in the wild?

                              Hahahaa. That sounds ooohhh so familiar. Steel, concrete, diesel/oil mix and ya, "tuck'em in boys".

                              As for the chicken? They cuddle up to the big bad wolf for warmth and protection, of course.
