Sometimes you just gotta squeeze through the cracks…

If only to convince yourself it can still be done.

    Can’t someone just spray paint over the sign?
    I’m assuming “tragedy of commons” here and not private property…

    You go, dude!

    Slightly OT: A former shipmate of mine once donned clown makeup (from a previous life) and rode a unicycle while firing a cap pistol. Inside the hanger bay of a US of A military aircraft carrier. I am told he had his escape route carefully planned… Oddly, he did not finish the full term of his enlistment for other reasons.

    Inspired by this, I pushed (no gasoline, too verboten) an assembled-in-a-secret-space dirt bike through the same hanger bay and rode it down the gangplank. Think many, many steps with a 50-foot drop and a 90-degree turn halfway down. Good times.

    We also wore colored socks under our regulation black socks just to buck the system. Until we got caught. Your tax dollars were supporting such rebels!

    Yep. Sailors.
    Robert, you wouldn’t happen to have been an avionics type, would you? We tended to think that way. One of my shipmates in our 65P/65Q shop (Vastards) once strolled through the hangar bay wearing a gorilla mask, carrying a ghetto blaster that was cranking out “Veteran of the Psychic Wars”.
    It had been awhile between ports at the time. I wish we’d had access to a unicycle, though; that would have made it memorable!

    Maritime continent.
    Navy and Marines make sense.
    Some rebels are required, because the state part not so much.

    No, but I knew some ATs and was visiting one of their shops when things caught on fire. Entertaining.
