You know what really grinds my gears? The Gears Strike Back


And that’s the conjecture over…


Conjecture, rumours, lies, libel and slander. That’s what grinds my gears… (nice segue back onto topic if I say so myself…)

Although there are two types of people, those that can extrapolate information from an incomplete data set…


It wasn’t me! But now I want to know.


I know, I was surprised too! :joy:


People who comment on BBC News articles and don’t know what they are talking about, I’ve never seen more people in need of tin foil hats in my life!


You need to check out the Metro website!!!


Some Americans we met on holiday this month (USA-based) see the Daily Mail as unbiased (when compared to CNN / Fox News)!! :open_mouth:


It was I.
I’m just waiting for HIGNFY tomorrow night.


I always wonder why we have wing conferences in uniform - at school on Teacher Training day we wear normal comfy civilian clothing. I think the RAFAC could take the same line - no cadets present + no need to be in uniform = NON UNIFORM


But how would everyone know what super awesome amazing gucci rank everyone is?


it would especially upset many squadron leaders.


I had a disagreement of opinion with a WWO on a Drill Training Day around this sort of pointlessly being anal. He started treating it like a Parade and requiring all or none for things like jumpers and stable belts. I pointed out that since the actual parade would be in No1 what difference did it make what we wore for the training. (I also pointed out that I have big belt loops so need a stable belt to keep my trousers up and that I don’t have a jumper as I never wear one, thought he was going to melt!) :joy::joy::joy:


You’re the kind of person that pokes IEDs with a stick, aren’t you?


Only if the IED doesn’t have a sense of perspective


The problem is most WWO think they are real WOs and forget they are volunteers in a youth organisation that doesn’t supply people with things and most of what they like to get excited about doesn’t matter much outside the bubble.


my WWO is great, he doesn’t need to be asked to make a brew when he sees me now, i just have to point at him and click my fingers.




What grinds my gears? All this socialist crap to tax and drag down everyone rather than punish the ones who can’t or don’t want to live in a decent society.


Nah, the lack of perspective extends to some regular WOs as well…


But at least it is the job they are getting paid to do.
