I’m currently in Army ROTC. We had a PT test this morning in the rain, which is cool and all. But afterwards, walking back to my dorm and passing people with their umbrellas made me a little envious. It got me thinking, for fun, is there a possible loophole to that rule? I don’t intend on actually using it anytime soon, but I am curious.

It doesn't rain in the Army, so the question is moot.

I would say that it would violate the spirit of the regulation. Second, Don't be "That Guy" , no one like someone who looks for loopholes. Just friendly advice : )

In my personal opinion, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with finding loopholes. Using them, however, is a different story. I would never attempt that because generally loopholes in the military don’t mean crap. I’d still get smoked for it.

I don’t really mean to. Curiosity combined with a programmers mindset just ends up in me noticing discrepancies or looking for “easier ways.” As I said elsewhere though, I wouldn’t ever dare attempt to use the loopholes. In a sense, finding loopholes is my way of better understanding something.

ADVICE FROM OLD SOLDIER: I know you are a programmer. The rest of us are not. A loophole can get a combat soldier killed. Thats why we don't shortcut. Keep going, you will do fine. Listen to your NCOs. Focus.
