Had to hot rack with a dude that had some serious BO issues. Definitely did everything in my power to make his life miserable. He had the joy of being racked out for anything I could ever dream of. One thing you don’t share is your sleeping bag. I would have kicked his ass if I ever caught him using it.

Sonar also listens to shrimp getting it on a lot. I still can’t listen to popcorn in the microwave without thinking about that.

In my day, we were sent movies on what looked like a mini vhs tape. I’m told they get them digitally now. We were lucky enough to get movies about a week before they hit theaters on a pretty regular basis. At any given moment, there were about 200 movies onboard. We watched a lot of Van Wilder (it was still somewhat new) and Ice Princess for some damn reason.

A few nukes played a lot of cribbage too. I never got into it until later in life. The occasional person would read a book or two. Beyond that, you’re either working on quals or in the rack. Sleep is just something you try to get every chance you get.

The forecast is the same every day... 72F and fluorescent, unless something is broken. It can get a little toasty then, but it’s bearable. But... that smell is a smell that you’ll never forget. Imagine running your lawnmower at full speed in your living room for 6 months. Berthing smells of mostly feet, farts, and diesel. You get very used to that smell.
