    :biggrin:

    Seen that last night on a bodybuilding facebook page.


    Another: When you practice showering in under 30 seconds, and somehow end up cleaning more of your body than when you take 3-4 minutes!


    Love the name change by the way, your name can be twisted in so many ways: One MoreMatelot, OneMoreWrap, OneLessMile etc

    You know youre a prmc when...

    You're slightly irritated I didnt write prmc in capitals!

    You start believing you'll actually find being cold wet and miserable on nod exercises fun! (soon changes after youre a nod though!!)

    You think that meeting an SB bloke is like shaking hands with god.

    You see massive and buff guys and think "bet he cant crack bft in sub 10!"

    They sell Navy News in your college!?

    Lucky so-and-so!

    In fact, another for the thread: we have an ML of 22 years in our IT department, I don't do IT but mates told me he was a "Marine sniper who specialised in skiing and ice climbing", so you know you're a PRM when you go to pick his brains for about 25 minutes while he's having a 'wet' out of an RMA mug, and you're practically spasm-ing in excitement. He knew almost all the lads in 'Behind the Lines' but he's short, fat, bald and grumpy now haha.

    Yes to the above!

    I'm at this stage at the moment. In civvie life I love being cold, wet and miserable. Love it!

    Told a ex-nod the same thing and he laughed and said, "you won't when you've been through training mate."

    Must say, was feeling slightly skeptical at the time but I've been hearing it more and more since.

    :wondering:

    When your mates fart in your face and say "it's just extra training for when you are in the army"

    When you laugh at the Barbie boys in the gym doing bicep curls in the mirror, despite the fact you look worse doing a burpee tabata session with sweat and snotters everywhere!

    When you've not even done an RMAD yet but you've worked out the joining timescale (if all goes to plan) and are already hopeful for a certain Recruit Troop! (got my eyes on either 172, 173 or 174tps!)

    I've done the same, 161-163 troops are what I'm hoping for, the earlier the better!

    As long as we're settled-in at a unit by 28th October 2014 then it's all good! A very special day and we won't be serving by the next significant anniversary 50 years later!

    PJFT in January hopefully, might hold out for an RMAD if the wait isn't too long. How far in are you?

    Exactly the same, my PJFT letter is being sent on the 8th of January, and I'm aiming to have it passed as soon as I can book it. Then PRMC as soon as I can after that. If everything goes to plan I want to push through and be away before mid-February.

    PM me your facebook if you want mate, we could very well end up on the same PRMC, and in the same troop! If we end up in the same grot, I'll apologise in advance for my putrid smelling farts.
