    You know you are a PRM/PO when. . . . .

    Lets see if people come up with any good ones. . . .:

    "When the first thing you type in your browser changes from 'faceb. . ' to 'prmc. . '!"

    "When you are in the gym and people ask you 'why do you hardly ever use weights'?"

    "When you have seen every bit of RM footage or documentary on the entire internet. . . . . at least twice!"

    All of your suggestions, plus:

    When a mate asks if you're still joining the army and your blood boils...

    When your biology teacher uses the word 'marine' and you start daydreaming and/or using this forum on your phone under the table.

    When everyone you know regards you as the absolute tank of your group! jokes jokes... :amuse:

    "When you use phrases like crack on, hanging and good effort".

    "When you remember your girlfriend's Birthday by remembering it's 10 days before the day the Marines were formed" (Don't worry she's not almost 350!).

    When you meet new people, Joining the Royal Marines seems to always flow into the general chit chat

    When at least 10% of your 'friends' on facebook are people you've never actually met, but always talk to about the marines.

    When you've checked that there's no new posts so you click out of the forum and stare blankly at Google for 30 seconds, wondering what else there is to do on the internet (no dirty suggestions lads, there's family in the room)

    You know you're a potential RM when...
    You apply to join the RM. No? Am I missing the point? :eek:h:

    Love the one about checking for new posts, finding none, so start racking your brains for something else to do on the internet :laugh:

    Ok, you know you're a potential RM when you try to type the word "command" for whatever reason but automatically stick an "o" on the end.

    When you get all giddy because there's a new documentary on. Or when you spot Royal Marine on tv in somthing, you make everyone else around know.

Been places, seen things, wasn't affraid to tell anything about the horrors of war. But one very moddest bloke, I had massive amounts of respect. He new why, but everyone thought I was little wierd as to way this guy was as I put one it one of my idols haha. Outsiders just dont get it.

    Yeah met him at my old school, he was doing his general life talk to 'encourage reading' and all that. Really nice guy and even though a lot of people chat *text deleted**text deleted* about him, the fact is he was an SF Sergeant within 7 years of being 'badged' and holds DCM and MM. Not exactly the "fake" some people claim!
