  1. This is clearly the age of iron ships and wooden men. That explains all the blockheads in the “leadership” positions.

    If I were still an LPO my response would be the familiar refrain “Stop helping!” Between the watchbill, work assignments, and a stout pair of lungs I have plenty of tools available to deal with someone coming in to work drunk. And .08? It’s a shutdown nuclear reactor, not a car. Reflexes aren’t needed, quite the contrary.
