    I thought it was fantastic, but if it's been a while since you've seen the original, get yourself a refresher - I hadn't seen the original for at least 15 years ago, and I was trying to remember a lot of details that weren't spoon fed to the audience (which I appreciated). My only critique was that the story moved at one particular pace through about 90% of the film, and at about the 2:10 mark I thought, "there's no way this is wrapping up in one film....there's going to be a cliffhanger and a sequel." Then it seemed to kick into fifth gear and wrap everything up at an oddly fast pace.
  2. NFL Ratings are Way Down

    The NFL is a massively hypocritical corporation that cares only for their bottom line, which is $$$. All the military ra-ra (at the cost to the DoD) is one example, here's another. The NFL touts October as breast cancer awareness month, and sells a bunch of merch with donations supposedly supporting breast cancer. Oh, it turns out just barely more than 10% goes to breast cancer research. The rest goes to the NFL and retailers. And what happens if a player whose mother died of breast cancer decides to do his own bling? The NFL slaps him with a fine of nearly six grand. You're not going to get people (including me) to stop watching football, but nobody should have any illusions that the NFL gives a shit about anybody other than the NFL.

    Or send them a link to this thread.
  4. USAFA: Being masculine is bad

    Ditto all. I was at Lakenheath a decade before Hacker, when Tonto was the DO of our sister squadron. Great guy, great fighter pilot. I also worked indirectly for Welsh when he was the USAFE/CC, and met him several times. I was a huge fan of him as well and described him in a similar manner.....before he became CSAF.

    If anybody was considering, stay away from the Beguiled. The previews made it out to be a 19th century Misery-esque horror movie. It turned to be a mind numbingly boring steaming pile of shit with no point and zero redeeming qualities. The movie ended with a cut to black and I literally yelled out loud, "Are you ing kidding me?!" Sent from my iPad using Baseops Network Forums

    I love Adam Carolla's take on this:

    Do not see The Mummy. I wasn't terribly impressed by the trailer, but I followed the wife to it skeptically. The first 20 minutes is military-centric and is so ridiculously implausible that it ruined the rest of the movie. F- , zero points, I want my money back.

  10. I wanted this to be professional, efficient, adult, cooperative. Not a lot to ask. Alas, your Mr. hatedont did not see it that way... so he won't be joining us for the rest of his life. Yes, that was a new account, and apparently created by the same person who created two others prior (which he stopped using after getting shit on). He has been put into permanent time out.
  11. SNAPs get what's coming to them. This would have been collateral damage.
  12. Three day weekends and holidays are probably your best bet, and plan on you doing most of the travelling. Meeting up in San Antonio isn't too bad of a drive for him, and San Antonio has an airport if you can fly. If you really want to stick together after UPT, start looking at AFSCs that will let you transfer to wherever he's stationed because an 8 hour drive is probably optimistic in the future.
  13. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Well I was being somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but if you insist... My personal experiences with safe spaces is limited since I haven't lived there in two decades, but my TV and internet still work, so I know that they exist at UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, UC Santa Cruz and many other locations. Schools that have historically been the poster children for free speech and expression now suppress free speech and expression if it there is potential that it could offend. Adam Carolla and Denis Prager have started a documentary after being cancelled at universities for just discussing the matter. Safe spaces didn't exist when I was growing up in California, but I saw plenty of examples of what is now becoming commonplace in terms of suppressing anything that the (leftist) norm disagrees with. Only hours after the Gulf War campaign was announced, I walked home through a massive march of "Peace Protesters" who were the absolute opposite of peaceful. My high school had a weekly free speech debate on various topics, and the two absolute outcasts were a Christian fundamentalist and a military brat who were routinely booed from the platform. One of my high school friends enlisted in the army after the Gulf War kicked off, and when I walked with him in public in his uniform, I saw him get heckled by random people on the street. The students at my college tried to shut down the ROTC program because they thought it bred baby killers. The list goes on, and while I'm know it's not indicative of everybody in California, it's absolutely a sample size.
  14. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Having lived in California for my first 22 years and Texas for a total of nine (including the last six), I wholeheartedly disagree with this. If you're talking about environmentals and landscape, California wins unless you're into miserably hot and dusty yellow. Austin is a rare exception, but it's more like California because of the culture than the landscape. Now if you're talking about the people, Texas wins hands down unless you like hanging out with a bunch whiny little bitches who don't want you to infringe on their safe space.
