    More "WTF?" from the same article... It looks like a Dorf on Flying ad!

    A small but important detail. If PA is going to claim someone is a pilot, then maybe PA should ensure they're actually a pilot, and not a maintenance officer!

    There are many of us who have been married for a considerable amount of time (nearly 25 years in my case) and understand that playing Charlie Sheen may seem like a good idea; but in reality there is something to be said about spending your life with someone you love and raising a family with them...

    Nope, that distinction would go to MotoGP umbrella girls (or brollies, as the Brits call them)! Plus, F1 has banned them from the grid...

    Gun Talk

    I thought residents of on-base hosing (no, that's not a typo) are allowed to keep firearms in their residence as long as they're registered with Security Forces? Check whatever base you are going to for it's policy. If you have to leave a weapon in the armory (never a good idea but may be the only option), put your own trigger lock on it. In fact, since only the receiver is technically the "firearm," consider removing the upper (if an AR) or other internals (if any other type of rifle) or barrel if a pistol. Nothing says you cannot keep gun parts in your residence, just complete firearms!

    Airlift stops

    Yep, know one personally who got rolled up in Fat Leonard (pun intended, as he's most like gonna get fucked because of it!). As for this non-existent story, had anyone other than Trump owned the place, it would be a non-issue. It's just the media's constant barrage against the man. I am not the biggest fan of his, but he was the best option and is doing a better job than any of the other candidates, plus I doubt he plays much of a role in running his businesses these days much less this one particular hotel. Much like the old adage of "if the minimums weren't good enough, they wouldn't be the minimums;" doesn't "if it's under the max allowable, then it's allowable" make the same sense? As a per diem hound these days, the vast majority of the hotels I stay at have a government rate which is the max allowable before taxes. There's no fucking way I am staying at some flea-ridden roach motel because it saves the gubbermint some pocket change. After 38 years of seeing what it wastes its money on, it doesn't bother me one bit...
  15. Talk to your security folks before you go and check out the Foreign Clearance Guide for the country/countries in question, as you may have to put in an APACS request for taking leave in some of them... https://www.fcg.pentagon.mil/fcg.cfm

  18. Sadly, seven fatalities so far. ATC comms were posted on YouTube, an issue with the #4 engine was reported prior to the accident. Heartbreaking...
