Did this all start over a screenshot someone had edited? I know about Bernard, but never understood exactly how the term was coined.

Bernard loads torpedoes backwards.
Bernard confuses meters with yards.
Bernard practices his drums when running silent.
Bernard thinks he can drink the water faster then the leak is letting it in.
Bernard thinks crush depth is another name for happy hour.

Bernard is my captain. Oh captain, my captain...

He is one of the more indispensable members of the crew, because he's the guy you blame for every stupid mistake you make.

I doubt he does, but I certainly have a problem with somebody replying to a comment made six years ago by a member who hasn't even visited this forum in almost three years.

Please read the date of posts you respond to before wasting the forum's space and everybody's time.
