Maxibon. A good example of the definition of 'intelligence' - "doing the right thing when you don't know what to do".

Thanks Fantom. For a 19 yo with the apocryphal comment from the SNCO, it was a night of learning and team work. Alas, my second OO was a punishment on Christmas Day and I had a married patch domestic to deal with; one punched civvy copper and two poor kids who had their special day f**ked up, all because their parents couldn't handle their drink.

You live and learn! What I've always said to my kids is to get a SSC and learn to interact with real people, opposed to some w*nky business degree or MBA.

Not carrying the pick-axe handle might have helped....
