When I was in Navy boot camp, our CC (uh, like a drill instructor) had to teach us how to take a 'military shower': "You filthy recruits need to wash your asses!" "Wash your whole butt... and your butt-hole." "Wash your crack, your undah, your 'tween, and your taint." "Wash all your Major parts, and your Private parts." "Y'all ain't got any hair to wash, but run a soapy hand over your scalp anyway." "Wash your feet last." "You can do all this in one minute, but in my generosity I will give you eighty seconds."

Curiously, she didn't teach us how to go to the bathroom. OTA2 Jones, thanks for everything.

Gary :
"I've never understood that joke, David"
The rabbit meant his own poo.
I tested that at the age of 12 (my grandparents were farmers ) .
No dang stuck to their bum (the rabbits bum, not my grandparents) but when I wiped the bull's ass with a white rabbit he turned dark brown (the rabbit not the bull).
Then the bull turned on me but that is another story.

Sorry. I corrected the colour. it was probably dark brown, but it was dark in there (the stables were, not the bull's ass)
Maybe the bull's ass was also dark but I wiped that memory out of my brain (I needed the space )

"The military is still largely a 'boys club' and misogynistic words and deeds are par for the course."


I'm reminded of a very recent conversation i had with a friend (a woman), who has been applying for jobs. Being an artist as she is, there was a guy she "interviewed" with, who was trying to start a business of drink and draw type thing and was looking for a recruiter/supervisor of sorts with an artistic background. He boasted about having been in the military for 25 years and now being retired from same.

From what she described about the way he was talking about women and his general views, well "misogynistic" doesn't seem to begin to describe it (sick/imbalanced and really immature comes closer). The US military at least is a culture wherein women are regularly and routinely sexually assaulted or harassed (as much as they try to keep this under wraps, thankfully some brave women DO sometimes come forward).

I can't say that the military made him this way, or that he would be different if he hadn't been in there for so long, but it does seem to be an amplifier of certain things (including some positive stuff too, but speaking about general views and treatment of women), and only the more decent and more mature folks like Doug, Ian, and others here we know avoid such tendencies and developments.

Can women partake of, support, and further this kind of negative culture in the military. You bet yah, there are sins of both commission and omission, unfortunately the latter is usually due to fear, or the hard heartedness that the military tries to foster and facilitate.

I deal with sexism all the time.

My boss at the bike shop is a lady. Her dad owns the shop, and her grandfather started the business. She's been around bike shops her whole life, and knows more about the product than I do. I can fix them better, but there's nothing on the sales floor she can't handle. Still, sometimes she calls me out to help a customer simply because they just will not believe that a woman knows anything about bicycles.

My ex-wife moved back to California and took our car with her. When she has to take it in for service, she has me call the shop to discuss the estimate. She knows that if she doesn't get me involved they will try to f*%k her. And it's true!

If my girlfriend has an issue with a medical bill, or a customer service issue at a store, she has me take care of it. She's perfectly capable, but I get better results faster.

It's a bunch of BS and it sucks, but it's a real thing. All I can do is try to treat all my customers fairly. To me they are all idiots who don't know how to ride or maintain their bikes. Women and men are equally capable of destroying perfectly good bikes.

3 weeks before I left for my trip to Patagonia, some idiot tried to burn his toilet paper and started a massive forest fire...

Yes, well it doesn't help when this culture starts out with "Hey Guys..." at the beginning of every sentence. Even Critter's You tube videos begin that way. Many times some don't even notice what they are saying.

"Yes, well it doesn't help when this culture starts out with "Hey Guys..." at the beginning of every sentence."

I got an idea. We should all switch to the good old southern "Hey Ya'll." It won't offend anyone and northerns can quit looking down their noses at us southerners for our difference accents and phrases. Win, win, win.

Franco, since bunny poop is dried pellets, of course they shouldn't stick to their soft fur. Bear scat, on the other hand, can be quite moist and will likely create a fairly brown rabbit. And then there are cows--I'm glad that it wasn't a cow that asked the rabbit that question. But, all in all, the joke still doesn't make much sense to me, even though it is rather cute if you don't questions the details. Sometimes it's hard to be an amateur scatologist, as I don't enjoy these sort of jokes as much as others do. (just let it go, Dunckel--don't ruin things for everybody else...).

From packing TP to feminist analysis to balls of poop Mark carries around to amateur scatology. This is why I love the internet.

If I can briefly go back to the original topic...

An easier method than the one in Critter's video is to simply wrap the TP around a pencil and then pull the pencil out. You can make a much neater roll that way.

An idiot burned down a forest but burning TP is not idiotic unless there is dry and highly flammable materials nearby and wind.

"An idiot burned down a forest but burning TP is not idiotic unless there is dry and highly flammable materials nearby and wind."

That why the NPs and Nat Forests here in CA just say to NOT burn toilet paper... period.
Rather than saying when/where it's safe and when/where it's not, they opted for the Idiot Proof Rule... 'just say no'....
