engineers, mainly Machinist Mates, do in the U.S. Navy to each other
in the boiler/engineering room. A container of water is dumped from an upper level area
to someone on the lower level, or from any high area
to any lower area

who are sleeping on watch as a way to wake them up, and they do so in shock, to teach
them to not sleep on watch or else it will
happen again. It is also done to people
who are already awake as a practical joke. Something
like that would
usually never be done to any higher-ups, especially
those that don't participate
in the game, since
get you in trouble.
