continuing ruminations of submarine duty

i am not going to specify which young duty officer this conversation was held with, but he has attained a lofty position in the navy lately. this story was passed on to me by many of the crew that were onboard when it occurred.

disclaimer: i was not actually privy to this conversation, but it is like many held onboard, underway, on the midwatch, during times of incredibly boring transits.

Engineering Officer of the Watch (EOOW): "you know, it's been proven that kids who's parents went to college are more intellegent than those who didn't"


Reactor Operator (RO): "so that means if i get the money together to send my mom and dad to college, i'll get smarter?"

god, i miss those conversations.

I'd like to point out that I was not said RO.


You'll be glad to know that stuff like this still gets bandied about on the midwatch. And no one can match submariners for a) deep, intelligent conversations where the problems of the world are solved and b) saying really stupid shit during any conversation. The nukes are the cream of the crop on both :)
