    Promotion and PRF Information

    I’m guessing it’s the pre-op hormones they have him taking.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    I think it has more to do with yesterday’s leaders picking HPOs who conform to their norms, who in turn are not necessarily the best equipped to lead their peers and subordinates.

    OCPs Arrive Oct 1st, 2018

    If I wanted to wear an Army uniform, I would have joined the Army.

    Throwing darts works for the stock market. Maybe we should do the same when it comes to picking commanders.

    BMW for rent

    Still doesn’t compare to the M3 I drive every day

    328s are for bitches

    Moody and the A-29

    A-29s are for Special Operations Fighter Pilots. Combat Air Advisors fly Cessna Caravans in Afghanistan.

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Alright. Enjoy your perceived STRD blanket until it dissolves when you get a 365 earlier than expected.

    Might want to reread the official policy. The MAF posts are pretty confusing and contradictory. Ultimately it comes down to 45 day deployments as the main discriminator, not short tours.

    PRK and LASIK Information

    Penile enhancement is still a gamble, just ask BQZip.

    Emirates Short of Pilots

    You also have to be a pilot, so I think the liquor license is the least of your problems.

    If all the lemmings start jumping off the cliff I’ll join in, but I’m not going to be the first one committing career suicide.

    I am not rationalizing ACSC, I just realize that not doing it would give me a 0% chance of making O-5. If ACSC were completely masked then I would not have bothered with it.

    ACSC was totally worthless. That said, it’s not all that time consuming if you can fog a mirror. I was able to knock out most of the self paced classes in well under 2 hours, and the group classes took an average of maybe 6-9 hours spread over a couple weeks. It’s a fvcking haze, but it is a huge discriminator for promotion and is worth knocking out for that reason alone.

    What is right with the Air Force

    The blame for not keeping E-9s in their lane falls on the O-6s who empower them.
  16. Downtown traffic isn’t bad at all. Your SNCO is misinformed. You’ll be going against traffic if you work normal hours.

    Really? Can you channel your inner libtard any further?

    Agreed. I will say Tyler Rogoway is a dumbass, however.

    Pipe cleaner won’t have near enough girth for an eagle driver to enjoy.

    Depends, the viper units have waived the fellatio requirement. 15C units still encourage you to bring your kneepads to the interview.
  21. In the past there’s been no reduced total amount with the up front option. The last time they offered it for the fighter guys, it was 112.5k up front with 9 annual payments of 12.5k. That’s clearly a better option than 9 payments of 25k. Are you suggesting that the 7-9 year lump payment 100k option means forgoing the remaining 110-170k???
  22. Social security tax phases out at 128.4K this year. For married folks, the tax bracket under 165k is 22, at which point it goes to 24% up to 315k. The lump sum will almost certainly help you save on taxes and you’ll have the benefits of compounding interest.
  23. Disappointed to see the 1 and 2 year options go away. I’m not ready to punch yet, but don’t want an ADSC that would prevent me from 7-day opting a shitty PCS.
