Vs RCN? These days my money's on the duck.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

I thought this was a Beaverton article only to realize this was actually published in Macleans lol.

Better question, who fares better in a run in with a loaf of bread?  The Navy or the Duck?

If it's 1000hrs, we like our soup and the bread goes good with it.  ;D
