Might not pass the test as well as ice dancing.

It is hard not to make comparisons with shuffleboard.

I had forgotten about curling until you mentioned it here. Do you think there is any chance corps squad curling has made its appearance yet? That might be a good indicator that the Corps has.

I don't even know what to say to that., it's such a horrifying thought I don't think the Corps has quite that much, yet. Cell phones were a giant step in that direction, though.

I heard that these days upperclassmen go around to plebes' rooms and serve them ice cream on R-Day. That would seem to be some kind of a sign.

Well, Jon just read that big Army has suspended the requirement to throw a grenade the minimum distance in Basic. Apparently kids don't grow up throwing balls any more, and they just don't have time to teach everyone to throw a grenade to standard...

No doubt in event of conflict, a flag of truce could be arranged, just like in the old days, and enemy soldiers could be brought over to instruct our soldiers in the art of grenade throwing.

If you needed to throw a grenade, and it went less than the minimum distance, that seems like it could be really bad. Can't they make grenades shaped like frisbees or something?

Oh, my! That could produce a new wrinkle in ultimate frisbee, which tends to be a once-a-week teambuilding event among many military units.

Then again, it sounds like the young'uns may not be so sporting any more...company PT may become online gaming rather than opportunities to meet upon the fields of friendly strife.
