Popeye's Sea Stories

You know.. I've never seen any of those NCIS TV shows. Not one...ever. You know why. From the previews I've seen and what I've read the plots/stories are too unrealistic.
you don;t say heheheh .. . NCIS is like the 'CSI' version of real life civilian police force.
Not too realistic.
I've seen it a couple times and one thing that is wrong most of the time is in real life NCIS personnels are usually not the first people on scene. The cops get there first.

I also do not believe NCIS has their own forensic scientist like the show depicts nevermind one as attractive as the one on the show LOL

I remember back in the day aboard the JFK.......sometimes we'd have night ops all night sometimes..the first launch would be at about 2100 and the final recovery would be about 1000....why? because we could and those pesky Russians were watching us. We needed to put on a good show.:D

Most times the first launch of the day would be a high noon. the final recovery was at about 2300...Yep..back in the day before most of you were born...aaarrrvvv..

In about 90% of cases, people from the forensic lab never see the crime scene and 90% of criminalist technicians never see the lab except when delivering the evidences.

In the J-15 thread and the CV-16 thread a video is being shown of PLAN sailors using a weapons loader to load weapons..a missile I think. the video is censored.


The USN on the other hand loads weapons less than 1000lb by hand except certain missiles all torpedoes and mines. thusly.


Enywho turn the clock back to 1977 at NAS Cubi PT in the Philippines. Were were hosting some Jarheads. eerr excuse me..A US Marine A-4 squadron and CVW-5 A-7 squadrons were in Cubi PT transitioning from A-7Bs to A-7Es while USS Midway was in drydock.

Well both squadrons had aircraft at the RED Label, Weapons loading area, loading 500lb bombs. the Marines were using a weapons loader very similar to the Chinese version in the video. Those shipmates from the A-7E squadron were using their muscle power. The sailors were much faster than the marines loading with their muscles than the Marines loading with the weapons loader.

This photo is of a weapons loader being used by US Marines in Bosina in 1995. Very similar to the one used in 1977 at Cubi PT.

U.S. Marine Cpl. John L Watts drives a weapons loader as he transports weapons to a F/A-18 Hornet for loading at Aviano Air Base, Italy, as the aircraft is prepared for a mission over Bosnia and Herzegovina on Dec. 28, 1995. DoD photo by Tech. Sgt. Russ Pollanen, U.S. Air Force.

Well I did not go very far or for very long.

In November my wife and I went on a cruise aboard Carnival Inspiration. A four day cruise out of Long Beach CA to Catalina and Ensenada Mexico. I enjoyed the cruise. My wife got sea-sick the third day out. What a sissy. To her the cruise was so-so. She did enjoy Catalina.

So did you have the urge to go to the bridge and declare "Battle Stations!" and order maneuvering to "Flank IT!",,, ole "blood and guts",,, you better pray that "sissy" doesn't see your post, you'll be sleeping on the floor at the foot of the bed with "Fido!" Heh!, Heh!, Heh!,,,
