  1. Raptor Gear Up at Fallon?

    Let’s cut to the chase then. If he wasn’t Green Dot current, look no further.
  2. History Friday

    I don’t know, I think it’s a fitting description. If the thing actually flew, it looks like it would be a horrible nightmare for both the flyers and maintainers.
  3. Help with a Divorce

    If you do not have to involve finance/DFAS, then don’t. That’s an entirely unecessary risk; they will fvck something up, given the opportunity, as you’re already experiencing. I paid mine via auto bank ACH.
  4. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Had my work laptop on the passenger seat when I got stopped once. Amn Snuffy reading from his clipboard "Sir, the reason we stopped you [lots of words] searching for contraband, government property...[more words]...do you understand the briefing?" Yes, go bananas {while I stand there checking FB on my phone}. Search over. "Sir you are free to go." Uuuuuhhhhh, can you read me that part about what you're looking for again? "[words]...government property...[words]" . Ok, so...nuthin? No? You sure? Final answer? Hokay then, deuces! No shit. Bradley Manning could have been driving off base with the motherload. Theater.
  5. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    That's quite the spirited discussion goin on over there.
  6. TAMI-21 Pilot Survey

    And wouldn't you know it, just a few months later, TAMI dudes started getting TX orders. A few that I know are still in. TAMI was a lesson in values. Shared values. And messaging. And fucking up that messaging...wholesale. Yet, noone was fired, near as I can tell. Back to values...
  7. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Used to bug the shit out of me when I'd walk into base ops (sergeant) and they'd auto-sir me. Brief explanation that, no, despite the bag, I'm an E-5, you can call me Sgt, shithead, whatever, just knock off the sir. Still sir this and that sir. FFS. Then I finished OTS, now immersed in my newfound Blue world, was when I finally noticed, they're all sir/ma'am-ing each other. MSgt calling A1C sir, SSgts calling each other ma'am. And also calling me sir. But since they also call the coffee pot sir, seems like much less of a courtesy extended. Its a culture of diluting the enlisted rank structure, delineation and responsibilities within enl/NCO ranks, and the enl/off relationship. A continuation of the mindset leading to a SrA stopping a Capt for ________ infraction, and if the Capt does not accept the correction on the spot, the SrA tells their Shirt, etc, etc. My opinion, from the perspective of having been proud to be addressed as Sgt, because it meant something, and I knew early on that if I ever poked a finger in a Marine Captain's chest, I would pull back a bloody stump, regardless of what clownery he was wearing. But that's where I grew up, I guess.
  8. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    You do understand why AF enlisted address each other as sir/ma’am, don’t you?
  9. Gun Talk

    Jimmy Kimmel crying does.
  10. The Next President is...

    FIFY. Seriously, say what you will about JEH and his own dossier fetishes, at least he ran a tight ship, including telling pols to go fuck themselves when the occasion arose.
  11. Wing Re-Org Test

    This. Wing structure wasn't near as broke as the oddity that is a NAF.
  12. Help with a Divorce

    1) Prenup 2) Have your wealth established and protected before the marriage. 3) Prenup 4) Prepare to spend a small fortune defending yourself in court despite 1-3. If you have the poor taste to enter family court with the wrong plumbing/DNA, expect to pay the price. Don't stick your dick in crazy. If it F, F, or F's, its cheaper to rent. 40 year old, experienced you is a far better judge of character than 25 year old, inexperienced you; getting married in your 20's is a sucker bet. Rev Lawrence Shannon speaks the truth, and it's an ugly truth.
  13. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Current law already allows for this and I'd think that it would be expected.
  14. Israeli Viper Shot Down in Syria

    [slides chips across the felt] All of it on the little Jewish country.
  15. So is “Don’t Panic” the canned message displayed in a Tesla in the event of a collision, or just what they chose to put on the screen?
