Navy promotion test
1. You are having lunch with your new Admiral, talking about the decision paper you wrote. During the conversation, a blonde walks into the dining area and she is so stunning you draw your boss's attention to her. Having his complete attention, you give a vivid description of what you would do if you had her alone in a motel room. She walks over to the table and introduces herself as the Admiral's daughter. Your next move is:
a. Ask for her hand in marriage.
b. Pretend you've forgotten how to speak English.
c. Repeat the conversation to the daughter and hope for the best.
2. You have been tasked to present a briefing to the Admiral. The success of this presentation will mean increasing your authorized manpower slots by 125%. In the middle of the proposal the Admiral leans over to look at your report and spits in your coffee. You:
a. Tell him you prefer your coffee black.
b. Ask him about his recent root canal.
c. Take a leak in his "OUT" box.
3. You are presenting a briefing to a group of 0-6s in the plushest office you've ever seen. The hot enchilada casserole and egg salad sandwich you had for lunch reacts, creating a severe pressure. Your sphincter loses its control and you break wind in a most convincing manner, causing three water glasses to shatter and a Captain to pass out. What you should do next is:
a. Offer to come back next week when the smell has gone away.
b. Point out the Chief of Staff and accuse him of the offense.
c. Challenge anyone in the room to do better.
4. You are at a briefing when you suddenly are overcome with an uncontrollable desire to pick your nose. Remembering this is definitely a NO-NO, you:
a. Pretend to wave to someone across the room, and with one fluid motion, bury your finger into your nostril right up to the fourth joint.
b. Get everyone drunk and organize a nose-picking contest with a prize to the one who makes his nose bleed first.
c. Drop your notes on the floor, and when you bend over to pick them up, blow your nose on your sock.
5. You have just spent the evening with an IG inspector who kept you at the club drinking until lights out. You get home just in time to change and go to work. You stagger into the men's room and spend the next half hour vomiting. As you are washing up at the sink, you boss walks in, blows cigar smoke in your face and asks you to join him for drinks after work. You:
a. Look him straight in the eye and launch one last convulsive torrent at the front of his Class A uniform.
b. Nail him right in the crotch, banking on the hope he'll never recognize your green face.
c. Grasp his hand and pump it until he pees in his pants.
Good try Jiz.

For you Woody

From February 10th to April 2nd 2012, Loving More, with the endorsement of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) conducted an internet-based survey of over 4000 participants who self-identify as polyamorous. This is the largest survey of self-identified polyamorous individuals to date. Individuals were recruited through local and regional listserves, Loving More email list, the PolyResearchers list, the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality’s (IASHS) student and alumni lists, and the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists’(AASECT) AltSex list. With the exception of five questions, all the questions were drawn from among those asked in the NORC’s[1] biennial General Social Survey (GSS) in order to compare a sample of the polyamory community with the general US adult population.

For those of your that are hanging on the fence as far as believing that there is or is not a God who Created this Beautiful World of Ours, I would like to challenge you to take a chance on something that my husband and I came across many years ago. First of all, if you are not a believer, have you ever given a thought to why am I here and where will I be going in the future after this life is gone. There is answers and proof if you will just take the time to check it out. Of course, there are those of us who are already believers in the Creator and His son Jesus, but many out there are just not sure. We believe that when God Created us that he must have had a plan for His Creation and His plan was for us to Love Him and Obey Him, well as many of you already know from Adam and Eve, that did not happen, but God did have another plan for your life, but you must believe that "HE IS" before you can have that kind of relationship with him.
Let me first talk about what my topic is today and it is "The Evidences of Christianity" which is a book written in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1829. Their were 2 men debating this subject. Alexander Campbell, President of Bethany College, Virginia who was a Christian and Robert Owen of New Lanark, Scotland who was a Atheist. I will refer to them later.
You must ask yourself this question "Either you believe that God Created the World or the World has always been." The scientist believe that the earth is between 7000 years old up to 14 billion years old, so say it was 14 billions years old, then where did the earth come from on that day of 14 billions years ago? I know this is a very challenging question to some of you, but just think about it.
This debate has to do with your 5 senses of which Alexander Campbell who was a genius tried his best to debate this issue. He said that it is impossible for anyone to conceive of a God creating this world unless the Creator communiated with mankind in the beginning. You will be in for a great surprise by reading this material of which I personnaly have a copy that I received over 50 years ago. My husband has used this material in alot of our Home Bible Studies. I have been trying to find copies, but been unsuccessful in doing so, but it is on the internet if you just look up these 2 men. This debate was done like a courtroom by having all conversation written down with each comment from each party. After the debate was over, they had people stand up in this assembly of people probably from every walk of life and asked them to stand for each party speaking. They said that those of you that are for Alexander Campbell in either already believing or are searching stand up, and only 3 people out of the whole assembly kept sitting. This is how convincing this man was and I challenge each one of you to check this out for it may change your life forever.

The man asked why a Marine brain cost so much.
The Dr. replied, "Do you know how many Marine brains we have to go through to find a good one?"

Thee is the reason we have got to blowe the syrians a message, as Colon said, but what if they dont get it because it blows up along with the misile and all the folks standing there waiting to get the message are blown up too and fooling around with injury and dying and dont pay any attention to a message that they probably werent CC'd on anyway. Now what are we going to do? Why, we gots to send a whole bunch of copies of the message on missiles and just hope that one of them is a dud and doesnt blow up and that message is the one gets read by somebody who can read and then also understands what it says enough to borrow a dime and call whoever the message is really for and that person is actually answering these calls and then even understands the screaming mimi on the other end of the call who has just been blowed up, or he calls collect and doesnt get approved, or passes on. Thank god we have leederz.

If you don't pay 'em you gotta leave. Just like rent. But call it whatever you want if it makes you feel good. It's irrelevant to marriage equality.

Yes, if you own a condo you pay homeowner's association fees. This covers maintenance and repairs on the building, insurance, utilities, the amenities, staff and all the services they provide. These are all things I want and pay for as part of living here. Just like if you own a single family home, you should set aside money for maintenance and repairs and need to pay for maintenance (roofing, landscaping, painting, plumbing, etc.) unless you do it all yourself. I would rather pay someone to take care of all that while I enjoy my ocean view. I hope you're having a lovely day.

Thank scipture that you have joined us in recognizing that we must bomb the bejazers out of the syranians in order to send messgaes. Your faith in this time honored method of message sending is unstinting, unblinking and un something else that we both know, but I can't spell. Bless you for your support of this part of the plan; all we have left are the three other countries on God's list. Time is of the ripe essence, and so are you, dear one. Hoo-Gaw. Bless You.

<quoted text>I'll just use this as an example of how these anti-establishment, free thinkers, that just will not tolerate being told what or how to do anything are lying, blowhards.'Luxury condo',concierge,(public)pool, (public)gym, full time staff (motel 6 has full time staff) and gardeners. How much 'yard' do you have that gets maintained?? If I wanted to knock down my (fully owned by me not an association) house and start a potato garden, I could. I can go skip-and-be-naked on my property with no issues. You can't even paint a rainbow on your carport without an O.K. by your collective of 'homeowners '(yuk yuk). You can't put on an addition, add a garage, lift it and move it, you got a RENTAL you big goof. Your homelife you have no control yet you come on here and talk crap about how you don't do anything you're told to do. Live your 'controlled' existance in your 'luxury condo' dipshit. Evan a bum living in a card board box has more options than you. yuk yuk yuk goof!
I don't want to do any of those things. If I did, I would have purchased a single family home. We don't have carports, by the way. We have a multi-level parking structure with individually owned parking spaces. I like having the building run and maintained without having to do anything. We are allowed to extensively remodel the interiors of our units. Having a RENTAL means you pay rent and someone else owns the building. If you own a condo, this is not the case. You're very confused. Yes, there are rules when you live in close proximity with your neighbors. You get to read them before buying and decide if you are ok with them. Even with single family homes, there are rules. You have heard of building codes, I assume? City ordinances? County ordinances? Don't be silly. Have a nice day.
