    If you are that detached from reality that you don't understand how housing a a young female service member in a room with one or more of the opposite gender, then further converstation with you on the issue is pointless.

    Yeah, riverrat and I live in this weird alternate reality in which the subordinate clause of a conditional sentence contains not only the subject, but also the verb and object of the clause as well.

    Yeah, I'm trying to figure out how it was unfair to me when I shared quarters with a dozen men or so myself. And if you're not able to tell me how it was unfair, then I guess I, and the rest of us, will just remain clueless on the matter.
