My name is Holly. I'm a 21 year old female college student, currently studying to be a computer engineer. I like video games probably too much and I am devoted to books. I am not afraid to send people dirty limericks.
Expect Supernatural, the Avengers, Dragon Age, the occasional LOTR and Harry Potter, and other things that amuse me.
Sometimes I do interesting stuff in my spare time.
I will freely admit that I am not an expert, and that I’m not completely sure of the answers of these questions without digging into research, which I don’t feel like doing at midnight when I have to go to work in the morning. Or doing a big post on mobile. Plus my preliminary search showed mostly biased sources which means digging into the actual rule restrictions. Which I found here: http://www.apd.army.mil/pdffiles/r670_1.pdf
Which I will totally do, just not right now. The main thing I saw in there though, is this quote in section 3.2.a. Which essentially says what I said: (a) Leaders will judge the appropriateness of a particular hairstyle by the appearance of headgear when worn. Hairstyles (including bulk and length of hair) that do not allow Soldiers to wear the headgear properly, or that interfere with the proper wear of the protective mask or other protective equipment, are prohibited. Headgear will fit snugly and comfortably, without bulging or distortion from the intended shape of the headgear and without excessive gaps.
A little later there appears to be a section on wigs (actually after further looking there are two?) and the section says that it has to comply to all the other restrictions. So I guess they assume any wigs are supposed to be well fit/sized and not slide around?
Nothing in my skimming about short natural hair, unless they’re considering it a fad hairstyle (which, I know, it isn’t and all, but I’d have to look more at the rules than the 5 minutes I spent skimming it)
Because Anna was asking me what a kookaburra sounds like |D
i just realised how odd this must sound to people who aren’t used to kookaburras
WHAT THE FUCK, AUSTRALIA. *uncontrollable laughter*
Where does your tongue stay when you’re not speaking? If you’re an English-speaker, it’s behind the top front teeth. If you’re a Russian-speaker, it’s on the bottom of your mouth, lying flat.
