  1. Well, as long as it's based on feelings then I guess it's all good! Who really cares about wins anyway? I mean, a great team can't win a national championship with a back-up QB, so thinking and feeling is the right choice. Oops, I forget that four of the last nine college championships were won by teams who had to field their back-up QB.
  2. Texas AND Alabama in -- complete joke.
  3. I can just image the investigations that would ensure were I still a Wing Commander. I actually kept booze on my side table and frequently had my commanders sit in lawn chairs outside my office on Friday to drink and smoke cigars. I even had big parties at this secret place we called...shhh, don't tell the USA Today...the "Officer's Club".
  4. Yeah, I don't know. I've been around a while and am not sure the good ol' days were any better. About 20 years ago I recall the Command SNCOs were telling be I couldn't eat at the chow hall because my shorts had pockets. I can think of a few more examples that date back even further.
  5. Yeah, but it's modified so you can turn the heat off fro the back seat.
  6. I trust YouTube more because it has more titties...I trust titties.
  7. Terrible experience. Couldn't even get drunk after the game because some Karen and a bunch of cops made us dump our BBQ and leave. Giving up a home game for TV money is BS.
  8. That's normally a guard/reserve thing. The DO, OG/CV and OG/CC are normally the full time positions while the Sq/CC is normally a traditional.
  9. Your hearing can get pretty bad before it affects your flight status. It's better for your VA benefits to just go with it.
  10. I was at an AFA convention a few years ago and had to wear my class-As (don't ask). The other convention going on at the same location was an abortion convention (not the medical people but the 20-somethings girls who had an abortion and now need to make it their cause so they don't stop and think about the fact they killed their babies). As I was walking through the lobby, a big group of these women (can we still call people that or is it a micro-aggression?) started shouting/chanting "military kills children" at me. I just laughed until I cried.
  11. As a CC, I would never let a guy like this skip an FEB. All it takes is a slight of hand and the dude will resurface somewhere else and kill someone. You can get FEB'd and still finish out in a non-flying job.
  12. Oh great -- now I'll have to wear a mask and show my non-dissident card to eat at a restaurant in Moscow.
  13. Love the mini bike. I think this is actually the same location.
  14. Not sure I fully agree based on research. Got my PhD with a dissertation in predicting pilot training performance. Lot's of research, including my own findings, revealed use of computer-based simulation had a correlation with improved UPT performance. It's a similar correlation (although not as strong) as overall flight hours entering UPT. Can there be negative transfer? Sure, but generally it was beneficial. If you want to turn over every rock to make your dream come true, it is likely to help. Personally, I'd spend the cash on strippers and whiskey but that's just how I roll...
  15. Wait -- can we still say that? Or, is that something we are supposed to celebrate?
  16. I actually asked if I could decline the funds for my base and eliminate the GTC mandate for my wing (also tried to close the BX...another story). I got a call from my 2-star boss who said "Really?! Are we going to have a conversation like this every week?" Got no traction.
  17. Where's all my bitches at?
  18. Also, having sat on lots of promotion boards, I can tell you that uniform wear and facial hair was not what we spent our 6.9 minutes on when deciding your career.
  19. After watching Office Space in 1999, I just wore what I wanted and grew my porn stache out. I got promoted along with everyone else so never did understand the debate.
  20. Meh - I've got a dozen stories just like that with regular dudes. Your sample size is a bit low. I've had more issues with some pussy AC/DO/CC types who couldn't make a decision to sit a low-performing idiot just because. This was long before we celebrated people for cutting off a penis.
  21. Funny -- I had my JAG try to tell me as a Wg/CC that I couldn't have "Christmas" party or or other Christmas stuff. I made him take out his official government calendar read to me what it said on the December 25 box. That made him set his scotch down and slink out of my big fat office.
  22. Uh oh -- what's the first rule again?
