    BMQ / BMOQ - Personal Electronics during course [MERGED]

    Man, if they brought back the old days of Cornwallis the princesses of today wouldn't make it past week one.  I'm not expert but I made it to week four before trying to VR but it was denied because the course WO knew my father (he ran the base kitchen).  So, they re-coursed me to a platoon where...

    Application Process Samples [2003 - 2018]

    Yes, it is very common and they know about it.  It's been like that for as long as I can remember.  I don't think it happens to everyone though.

    What's the dumbest thing you heard said today?

    I don't know what's worse, that a TEEN girl still believes in Santa or that her mother backs her up by getting her what she wants because she doesn't want to get on the bad side of her daughter.  Somebody needs to get a grip.

    Hey!  What's wrong with Petawawa? :D

    Ah, gotcha.

    Why don't we point?

    I know it was stating the obvious but I don't see why we need to worry about what someone does in another part of the world here.  If pointing at someone insults them because they are from a part of the world where it's a massive insult to their honor so what, we aren't there right now but they...

    Why don't we point?

    It may be but we aren't in the middle east. :) And yes, showing the bottom of your foot in that area, and others I'm sure, is very insulting.

    Why don't we point?

    Hehe, the best part was having a MBdr sitting in the instuctor's office, window open, yelling at us the whole time.  And he wasn't even with my course. :)

    Why don't we point?

    Man, I wish the worst thing they did was point at me during my basic years and years ago.  Much better than barrack box punishment or going 'round the smoking area on your hands and knees picking weeds up all the while mooing like cows. :)

    Couldn't agree more.  I know I come from a time when this didn't matter; being that in '94 we didn't have cellphones, laptops or the interwebs (much), but I've said it before that if you can't go 13-weeks and trades without checking facebook and texting your mom/gf/spouse/significant other...

    Exactly.  Use their inability to cope with the loss of their precious devices as another screening tool.  I don't know about anyone else but the last thing I wanted to be doing during basic and battle school at the end of the day was worrying about a missed text message or e-mail.  I was tired...

    BMQ / BMOQ - Personal Electronics during course [MERGED]

    For me, when I was at St. Jean back in '94 (and we didn't have cell phones really or the interwebs) I didn't worry about anything other than keeping my sh*t in order in my cubicle and on my floor.  I didn't worry about calling home (because I know where it was and where it would be when I was...
