  1. I hadn't even enlisted in my unit hey and they paid for my travel. They booked my flight and hotel. Only thing I had to be reimbursed for was per diem. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app

    Difference is Marzipan did it literally twice in like 5 corners. His last lap of Q1, he passes 5 cars on the outlap (poor form to begin with) and spins, ruining their qualifying laps. Then lap one of the race he makes it 3-4 corners and spins again. The guy shouldn't be in F1. The guy punched another driver twice for getting in his way on a Free Practice 2 lap. He doesn't deserve the seat. Strolls dad might have paid is way, but at least he has pace and isn't a punk. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. It's awesome that you buckled down and did that. I, similarly, was able to save and get my PPL, but the costs were significantly different. I had to have a high paying civilian job to be able to do it in a reasonable time. Now getting a PPL, could easily be 6-9 months of a 2d Lt base pay depending on the location. Getting a PPL, and crossing the 100 hour make with 2 months of pay saved up is a thing of the past. Very best case, you get a bare bones cessna 150 in a cheap area, fly solo 100% of the time and it'd still be about 7500 (another 3 months of base pay) for that 50 hour block. I don't

    Now that Mazepin has made a fool of himself 2 days in a row, can we get this punk out of there? Too bad Comrade Gene Hass needs the money he's gstting from his Mazepin's dad. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. Classic "it depends" answer. All up to how many slots NGB has and when they have them. I know a guy that got OTS dates about 3 months after his package was approved, then waited another 8 months after graduation to get UPT dates. Another dude got OTS and UPT dates about 6 months after his package was approved. It's just luck haha. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  6. That's disappointed. Duckworth has generally seemed reasonable. And I loved when she lot into the guy that hurt himself playing military prep school football for claiming "disabled veteran" status with his business. So I'm disappointed to see her being part of that kind of bullshit. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. What? The government doesn't pay taxes to itself. I'm saying the gigantic companies (Amazon, Walmart, etc.) "move enough around" to minimize how much they pay in taxes. I'm not saying they create money that isn't there. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  8. I'm not arguing either way, I honestly think taxes have a smaller impact on large businesses than we think. Their armies of accountants move enough around that they'll make the math work out in their favor. It's not like they ever lower prices when their taxes go down. Remember all the companies that said the tax cuts they got would go to their employees? That didn't happen in 99% of the companies that claimed the tax cuts were a win for workers and consumers. Businesses are inherently selfish, which they should be without an incentive to act otherwise. We know that they'll consistently rais
  9. Haha I'm not complaining. ATC seems particularly annoyed at times, though. I doubt they're aware, so they don't understand why the T-6s are suddenly "unable" when they were accepting the RNAV STARS 2 months ago. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  10. Like you mentioned. RNAV approaches are still 100% being done. Just under day/VMC conditions. Main issue is no RNAV SIDS or STARS, so it can make out and backs or cross countries more difficult to plan. The training is still happening, training opportunities are just limited by weather.

    100% agree. All three look great. Like you, I don't give a shit about the reasoning behind the Merc color choice, I just think the black looks awesome. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  12. I'll always support Kinzinger over the spoiled drunk that's never had a day in his life where he had to be accountable for his actions. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. It's expensive, but quality. And 25% off is more than just about anywhere else I've seen. Plus, it makes the prices much easier the digest. Some of their stuff is still absurdly priced. But a lot of it is worth it, especially in times of telework where most people are wearing these types of clothes almost 24/7. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  14. I'd add India to this list too. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. I bought back in 2013 before the PS4 came out. Of course I bought it at like $40 a share, but I sure am glad I held when it dropped to like $4 a share. I cashed out at 150, sadly. Would have been awesome if I could have sold at 450, but I'm still excited. It was a stock I'd written off as a loss and out of nowhere it turned into a 10k profit.
