    I don't believe women in the Navy can be a Navy SEAL or EOD.

    I do not mean to sound sexist but I do not think women could pass the training Navy SEALS go through. I really do not. The difference between a SEAL and everybody else in the Navy is the difference between you riding your bike and Lance Armstrong riding his bike. It is not the same thing. At all. I mean you're both doing the same thing. But you're really not.

    Doesn't matter if you think they could or not. Doesn't matter even if none of them could. What matters is that they're at least given the chance to try.

    Meh. I took 4 Navy SEALS down the river once on an "Xtreme" whitewater trip.

    I wasn't impressed. I made them cry uncle by mile 9 in a 24 mile trip. Bunch of cocky, arrogant, sexist bastards, too. I never took so much pleasure in flipping the raft repeatedly as I did with those guys.

    Yeah, right...........

    Since we are telling sea stories, I saw a training film on Navy Seals one time it included guys jumpimg off 12 story buildings. Parachuting with half chutes so they could get down faster//////going on 100 mile hikes.........living off the land, escape and evasion (I was there for this) eating roots, roaches, ants, spiders...I ate the roots but starved otherwise...Lost 20 lbs in 5 days.........
