    Though as I think of it, our chief's coffee mugs where always locked down, tightly, right in the chief's hands.

    They had a shelf in the Chief's mess with a rail to keep them in and a glass door to keep them from falling out.

    During rough seas, I used to put marbles inside the lips of some of the racks for the slobs of our berthing.

    The marbles would roll and smack both ends of the rolled over lips driving my victims crazy and keeping them up all night. I would hear them getting up 2-3 times a night, emptying their racks looking for what ever was making the noise.

    We had one guy in the shop who got kinda queasy in rough seas, so we would hand a pencil from a string down from the overhead, and take bets on how long it would take him to have to go puke. He did not think it was nearly as funny as we did.
