"change the batteries in the wind-sock"

Ah, yes, the n00b pranks in the military!

"Go down to the boiler/machinery room and get a BT/machinist punch"

"I need you to get 5 feet of water/chow line"

"This is the pressure test. Just put your thumbs in this vice, and we'll see how much pressure you can take"

"We're heading up to the surface to get mail from a mail buoy. Here's a lifejacket and a harness, put 'em on, you're going up the hatch"

"Oh, my GOD, the REACTOR is CRITICAL??? RUUUNNN!!!"

"I need some sound-powered phone batteries. See if there are any in the supply room."

"Make sure you press your eye really hard onto the rubber eye cup on the periscope/viewport" [invariably has been lovingly coated with something that leaves a 'black eye' pattern around your eye, like maybe this carbon-based lubricating material designed for stainless steel nuclear valve covers, and everyone ELSE knows better].

what ELSE would you expect, in a high testosterone environment, with most people in their early to mid 20s, that are somewhat bored most of the time?
