Yeah, I'm here.
I suppose army, seeing as I'm the only member of my family who hasn't joined it at one point or another.
But mostly I'm a big coward, and would probably be a conshie. Or join the fanys.

George Melly
said in his autobiography that the only thing the navy taught him was how to wank in a hammock without waking the rest of the crew.

That's what I thought.

Nobody can tell what you're doing in a, er, cockpit.

RAF FTW.

Royal Flying Corps, darling
boats make me sick and the army is full of poor people. In the lower echelons, at least.

I can certainly attest to that.#

Airforce.
If only because my grandad and great-grandad were respectively NCOs in the army and the navy during the last two world wars, and it'd be neat to pull off an intergenerational hat trick like that.

Then again, if you still need to rhyme "house" with "mice" to get into the air force these days, something like the engineering corps would be a better choice. Also, it turns out I am slightly too tall to be a pilot.

Wow.

She's done a couple of half decent bits and bobs
one of the few perks of being forced to have radio 1 on in the lab is that occasionally they play something that's actually quite catchy.

I'm surprised a team of scientists listen to Radio One.
I thought you'd have something more lefty on.

Why lefty?
it's radio 1 or jack fm in our lab. Or radio 2, if I'm left to my own devices, but nobody else likes it. Or youtube disco, if the boss isn't in.
