    I did both.

    Obviously a good kid. Can't tell whether this is a parody or serious, though.

    That guy was harassing himself. I wonder if he'll get masted for recording that video.

    So for those of us who didn't see it before it was removed - - what are we missing?

    He probably won't get actually fried, but considering 95% of the Brigade has seen that video and thinks he's a major tool it's not like he'll be getting off scot-free from his classmates.

    A squid awkwardly asking Rebecca Black out to a dance, claiming that her presence would boost moral.

    Thanks, I just watched it. It is posted again at Youtube.

    (just search "Rebecca Black - Naval Academy" and you'll find it)

    I didn't see any bullying, threats, or harassment at all.

    I hope this kid realizes this girl is only 15 years old, does seem a bit akward. I would've loved to see the reaction this got around the Academy.

    I agree though, didn't see any bullying or harassment at all.

    The video appears to be simply a parody of the other videos where stars are invited to attend events, which has received more attention than originally intended.

    We thank this cadet and all other cadets for stepping up for answering the call to serve our country. We support all of them.

    We should probably leave it at that.

    Noooooooo..... we should not leave it at that. I realize the "we serve on the front lines" is a line midshipmen think are going to make the ladies swoon, but ladies and gents.... that ship has sailed and that line is played out.

    This was a "midshipman", don't want to tarnish the good names of "cadets".

    I hope this was a job, but I fear that kid was 100% serious.

    My little nautical heart cries.:frown:

    Which part? The desperate plea that "we serve on the front lines" somehow automatically attracts women (someone's watched the movie Pearl Harbor one too many times)?

    It's like a drunk kid in a bar suddenly yelling he's in the military when a bouncers going to make him leave (haven't we seen that, there's an article from military times somewhere on this forum speaking just to that mentality).


    By "job" I meant to type "joke".


    Which part for you need a translation for Jcleppe? :confused:
