  1. Start here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_current_members_of_the_United_States_Congress_by_wealth Lots of career government employees on this list.
  2. Regarding Tricare for life, I’ve heard from more than a few pilot and non-pilot retirees that it was a huge reason for staying in, or in one case, returning to active duty to get healthcare covered for a child with an extremely rare disease. What are you airline guys paying for health insurance? Based on what I can figure, it’s around $1k/month with a max out of pocket of $6-12k depending on the plan.
  3. ...I’ll bet you $50 that Zandvoort is on the calendar within a year. This is going to blow. A race in Florida suburbs next to a Walmart and CVS. South Beach or nothing!
  4. There are dozens of us! But if you’re looking for a sport with no political sellouts, F1 ain’t it. The NBA is getting a lot of shit these days for defending the Chinese government over the HK protestors, while F1 has been making deals with sketchy governments for 50 years. Apartheid South Africa, Communist Hungary, China, Russia, Bahrain, etc.
  5. Almost every hotel will release rooms at the government rate late in the game when its apparent the rooms won’t sell at the normal rate. $160 is greater than $0 and basically pays for a maid’s entire shift...
  6. Hack reporters continue to drill in to this fake scandal, and the Air Force continues to bend over and adjust to angry tweets. https://www.politico.com/story/2019/09/08/trump-resort-air-force-probe-1485447 My first stop in Prestwick was in 2011. Why? Mildenhall is fucking closed from 2200-0500 because the locals can’t be bothered with the jet noise that sustains their town. Also the service sucks and it takes trans a few hours to get you to the hotel. Pretty easy decision. The best part is the “investigation” by Elijah Cummings and Jamie Raskin gets its entire mandate from a poorly researched Guardian article. https://www.politico.com/f/?id=0000016d-08f8-d6ab-a97f-4afb19f90000
  7. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulnar_nerve “This nerve is directly connected to the little finger, and the adjacent half of the ring finger, innervating the palmar aspect of these fingers, including both front and back of the tips, perhaps as far back as the fingernail beds.” Story checks!
  8. IDGAF if Maj Gen Wills “cares” about anything or not. He’s got a job to do, and it’s extremely disappointing that he doesn’t grasp the concept of increased retention pay being cheaper than the expense of replacing experienced guys. He also thinks he can’t afford to compete with the airlines, which is a foolish take on the problem. The truth is that he’s spending billions to train the airlines pilots for them.
  9. A year in jail? Really. For how much BAC? 0.03? Career over, marriage over, kids disgraced for something I’d bet you’ve probably done yourself once or twice at a much higher BAC and gotten away with...
  10. Korea’s BAC max is 0.03% now. Including, unbelievably, people on bicycles, scooters, and hover boards. https://www.military.com/daily-news/2019/06/28/new-law-drops-bac-limit-03-all-troops-stationed-south-korea.html
  11. What time do you show for your airline?
  12. Well they could at least double they pay and save money over training the replacements. Triple, I don’t know because the charts cut off with an upward vector.
  13. Records management? Is that a job in a squadron? What do they do?
  14. I think Tom Cruise has figured out the retention problem. Line flying O-6, qual’d in at least 4x planes simultaneously, and personal motorcycle storage right on the flight line. Edit: especially since the taxpayers will think this is reality anyway after this movie comes out.
