Canada's Armed Forces: Strong. Proud. Drunk.

It's Rememberance Day today, but the only way I'd be able to tell that from Whyte Avenue at 10:30 at night is that the proportion of drunk people in the bars wearing military uniforms has significantly increased. There's something discomforting about seeing a military couple lumbering down the street towards you, arms around each other's waists, with lazy eyes and droopy mouths. Shouldn't they have some kind of party clothes, to make them seem less inappropriate?

Or more appropriate, depending on how you look at it...

Glad to hear you like the nickname. Soldier on dB. Be loud and proud (although remember that loudness is a perceptual measure not expressed in dB). Yes, I do like Audiology a bit too much.
