Epigraph
Any undertaking in the navy goes in four stages:

First - terror;

Then - error;

Third - punishing the innocent;

Fourth - rewarding the non-participants.

"What did you see in the navy?"

"The neck of the man in front of me."

"And what were you doing the whole time?"

"Side-stepping problems."

[Sea Stories]
"The entire army system of relationships beyond the military manual is built on daily humiliation, both physical and moral which amounts to savagery."

- Alexander Terekhov
