In memory of IC2(SS) Terry Nichols, Here is one of his many notable quotes - "Some people treat their bodies as temples. I prefer to treat mine as an amusement park."

And then there is a unique "Horse & Cow" submariner ritual dating back to the days of diesel subs.
To show their moxie, submariners, usually fortified by strong drink, remove their pants and underwear, affix a tail of toilet paper to their bare backsides and light it on fire. Some jump on tables to display their bravado and flaming posteriors...........Say it isn't so!!!!
