  1. Nuclear propulsion question

    That's not true. All the hottest women in the military seem to be in the Air Force. When I was stationed in Charleston and Virginia, we used to go work out at the gyms on their bases. It worked out better for two reasons - we got to train with better equipment at the Air Force gyms, and the Air Force girls were very happy to see us when we would show up. More than one told me about how prissy all the men they worked with were.

    Actually, when things break, it's not unusual to do maintenance or repairs underway. Also, your idea of "no need to do maintenance underway" is completely and utterly the stuff of fantasy.

    Yeaaaaaaah, because nothing says "political correctness" like calling out genocide.
  4. Nuclear propulsion question

    That sounds about par for the course. We were on 8 section duty, once, for about a year before there were several pooch screwings in a row, that meant enough people were denuked/ disqualified/ removed from watchstanding that we had to collapse down to 4-section, then eventually 6-section. Reactor on a CVN maintains a separate duty rotation than the rest of the ship anyway, and they were usually on more duty sections than we were. Except in early 2003, when the war broke out. We were on 6-section, as was the ship's company, though they had to collapse down to 3 to cover extra security watches. And because Reactor could never have a better deal than the rest of the ship, we were forced to go to 3-section as well. Until the powers that be in Reactor saw how ridiculous it was (most watches were already 6 on watch/ 18 hours off), and quietly shifted us back to 6 section.

    Unless that's a main space or equipment room with equipment vital to propulsion or fighting the ship. Automated systems can't rig casualty power, swing spool pieces, or rig up alternate workarounds to keep things running. Especially since those automated systems themselves could often be prone to breaking down or battle damage.
  6. Out of morbid curiosity, what internet website did you get your degrees in electrical and aerospace engineering from?
  7. FFG-500 A proper Frigate for the US Navy

    No. It's a gas, and harmless to people - we had an accidental initiation or two in the main spaces that used them. http://www.dcfpnavymil.org/Systems/HPF/HPF.html

    HFP. Non-toxic and won't suffocate anybody in the space, and non-conductive and non-corrosive for the electrical and electronics.

    This thread is pure comedy gold
  10. USS John F. Kennedy 70% complete

    And then another 2-3 years of outfitting, testing, and certifying before sea trials. She still has a long, long way to go.
  11. Nuclear propulsion question

    When I was in P-Cola for recruiting school, there was a small contingent of Air Force there, and they were in fact complaining because the sea returnee barracks only had HBO in the rooms, and not Showtime and Cinemax. They were also getting extra perdiem because apparently the dining hall was "substandard."

    For the record, a CVN does have exhaust outlets for the emergency diesel generators that are located aboard ship to provide power in the event you lose the reactors.
  13. This is beautiful. Bravo, sir.
  14. Welcome to weekends again

    How about this one?
