And now, back to our regularly scheduled mercenaries. In which, we see a classic ritual enacted with any new member of an organization.

You’d expect the AI to tell the difference between the Free Marketers’ slapped-together “uniforms” and the Dhuvalians’ impractically elaborate suits.
This has nothing to do with the AI. This is a hazing ritual to see if the new guy is gullible enough to actually do it. Sounds like he is.
This is how people earn their nicknames. Lets hope Harper is a good sport about it all.
When my grandfather was in the army, the new guy would just get sent out to pick up a gallon of headlight fluid and a left-handed socket wrench.
it could be worse, in the navy I hear they tell you to get a 50 gallon drum of prop wash, and I know for a fact that the new guy around heavy machinery is always told to check the spark plugs on whatever equipment is diesel.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I’m sorry, never did one that could get somebody to strip…but. Headlight fluid? Yeah with some kids these days, it’ll make a come back. Hard core is send somebody with a clue out to get some BA-1100 NS T-rings. But I suppose the average pogue around these parts is sure to get me a exhaust gas sample.
Not just hazing on some of the rituals. Sending someone to get a gallon of steam condensate or the serial number of a water slug introduces them to some of the people and spaces on the sub they get bounced around from one person to another sometimes in a prearranged order. The Army has it’s new guy rituals as well.
clearly they dont hire people for intelligence then. Any fool would realize that selling a weapons system emplacement that may accidentally fire on there own soldiers because of a simple malfunction in target recognition IS NOT SOMETHING TO BE SOLD OR USED! If this guy has any brains he is gonna strip to his boxers go “Happy now ya pogues?” then get dressed again and get to work.
These so called “hazing rituals” are detrimental to over all unit moral and should be considered a illegal and actionable offense of military command law. All it does is foster anger among new enlistees for not being given they respect they deserve for signing up in the first place. They pledged there lives for a paycheck. They deserve better from the people who did the same. What excuse do they have? What excuse for mister “I masturbate in my limb”? What excuse does anyone reading this IN the military right now have for such despicable behavior? None thats what. its all to be bullies and feel bigger.
