Midwatch discussions

Not sure what the other branches called them but in the Navy standing midwatch was extremely boring, military members + boredom = interesting conversations.

So with all the tension let’s blow off some steam and hear your best pointless arguments.

For example, Is the koolaid man the pitcher or the koolaid.


Ok, my best pointless mid watch conversation was:
Your answer to the question of: Which came first, the chicken or the egg.

  1. If you say the Chicken you believe in creationism. :see_no_evil::speak_no_evil::hear_no_evil:

  2. If you say the egg, you believe in evolution. :hear_no_evil::speak_no_evil::see_no_evil:

Everyone knows the pitcher is the Kool Aid man. The red stuff in the pitcher is.just his body fluids :rofl::exploding_head::innocent:

I saw this one come to an actual fistfight. Who would win in a fight? Freddy Kreuger or Jason Voorhies? First World Problems. :us_outlying_islands::rofl::innocent:

Feel free to moderate or delete if people decide to come after me with pitchforks and torches.


No brainer. The chicken came first

And of Course Jason over Freddy.

My favorite fight debate was Tinker bell vs Tooth Fairy. That went to some dark places.


Ford vs Chevy
9 vs 45
Pistol vs Revolver

I’m sorry that I just broke the forum. :grin::grin::grin:


My question is; why do we park on driveways and drive on parkways?? :joy::joy::joy:


Mary Ann or Ginger


I’m trying and failing to recall any ST division midwatch discussions that would be suitable for a public forum.

Maybe, “If you could choose any-”

Aw no, that one goes bad right away.


@ERROR_USERNAME oh man the stuff that used to be discussed in the sonar shack would make an Amsterdam window girl blush. I got qualified on the “stack” in 1986, thought about becoming an ST but ended up going HM.

I don’t think I can recall any midwatch conversations that would be suitable for public discussion other than night dreaming about cars, guns, women … see, there it went.

Machinery 2 midwatch would definitely make you question morals. Then go back and have those brainiacs in Maneuvering ready to kill each other over the physics of a made up problem.

I’m going to assign you, @Zavier_D, and @Sheepdog556 to make sure this thread stays clean-ish. PG-13 with no vulgar language. You two can be the drill sergeants on this one - wait, no! I want you to be nicer than that! :stuck_out_tongue:


Our fingers have fingertips but our toes don’t have toetips. Yet we can tiptoe…


@Dawn then clearly there are toe tips. Lol

What if God uses evolution to create? :grinning:


That’s actually my philosophy… :innocent:


It’s certainly not my place to tell Him how to do His job.

I was in the smoke pit on the pier a few years ago listening to the crustiest nuke chiefs since the dawn of khaki talking about some bizarre theoretical stuff. I listened for a bit and tried to work out whether it was physics or mathematics.

Then I realized it was World of Warcraft.


I don’t think either is exclusive, and I agree with Dawn.


Oh no. I deliberately did not put in a belief in The capital g, capital o, capital d.

Last time I had this come up I was called a godless SOB and thought I was going to get keel hauled. A not fun way to see the ocean and it’s crustaceans.


I’m watching you guys, :eyes: always watching :eyes:

Quote from a movie. Any guesses!

Sounds like Monsters Inc… Mike Wazowski! (Yes, I’ve been watching too many movies with my granddaughter lately.)


I knew I wouldn’t get away with that quote as soon as I saw you typing and remembered you had a grand baby.

Fun fact. For the longest time I thought that was @KevinM last name. I’m only admitting that now because

  1. travel restriction

  2. hoping he doesn’t hold a grudge.
