    Nope, it's not new, but this one apparently has a huge fucking problem.

    The terlets on a carrier operate with sea water and a vacuum system, and conventional Machinist Mates are responsible for those systems... Think the dumbest cross between a plumber and a mechanic you can imagine.

    It's probably a simple problem that hasn't been diagnosed yet, or the bored sailor exaggerated to mommy for her blog. I can't imagine a guy who's bucking Admiral letting a quality of life issue like that slide for long. (Captains of carriers are usually very close, if not already Admirals)

    That's what I get for going off old information.

    Am I really so fucking old that the time I was in the military was like the good ol' days?!

    Anyway, everything I said was accurate for the CVN-74 as recently as 2002. :haha7:

    I guess you could rub one out directly into or throw your rag down the toilet in the old system.

    If you send hundreds of men out to sea for a couple of months at a time semen disposal should be a concern.

    Repealing the 'don't ask don't tell' policy and throwing a handful of women on board isn't a solution.

    Yeah, the old system was fucking violent. You know how like on a plane or a cruise ship when you hit the flusher it seems like Hell is violently stealing your shit? Navy carrier toilets used to be 100X worse. I would expect it to crush and dispose of a fucking basketball if you threw it in there.

    Smaller ships had less "robust" systems since the piping systems were so much shorter and there was such smaller crews. I'm guessing they tried to use the smaller systems for the bigger ships and that's not working out so well.

    Or worse... Depending on the type of system it may have a common drain with mechanical systems, which get all sorts of fun stuff stuck in them. I don't know shit about fresh water sewage systems on carriers, though. This is new magical stuff.

    Bush's name is on it. It was doomed to be a shit pile from the outset.
