re: Is there a bigger modern day scam than full size paper towels? - armytiger96
By now means am I an expert on either, but my basic understanding is that both of these investments essentially takes money from Peter to pay Paul. When President Bush tried to privatize portions of our SS contributions many of our esteemed politicians were there to inform us that this wouldn't w...

re: **Update** Enlisting if older than 28 - armytiger96
Officer vs Enlisted shouldn't be that much of a dilemma for you. Just look at your current profession. Would you rather be one of the guys that has a shovel in his hand, turning the wrench, finishing the concrete, or would you rather be the project manager? What about 10 years from now? If you ...

re: **Update** Enlisting if older than 28 - armytiger96
Quality of life for an officer is hands down better than quality of life for an enlisted soldier. Single enlisted guys will be stuck in the barracks rooming with the person they are told to room with and eating in the mess hall since your barracks room won't have a kitchen. You don't care for you...

re: **Update** Enlisting if older than 28 - armytiger96
Didn't read all ten pages before writing, but I don't see it in the first five pages. Make sure you are OK with the pay scales before you decide to join. As a 2LT you will have a base pay of around $30K a year. When you are 50 years old and at peak of your career you will be making just over ...

re: Making homemade pizza dough from scratch - armytiger96
I highly recommend getting the Elements of Pizza cook book. This book has been a game changer for me in improving my home made pizza dough. It gives several different dough, sauces, and pizza recipes. When cooking on the stone turn the burnrrs directly under the stone to low. Sometimes I fo...

re: Garth Brooks Lafayette final show check in thread - armytiger96
My wife and I had the same conversation on the way home. She has a master's degree in vocal performance and she believes that it's not staged per say but more he is a master at seemingly working items of opportunity into the show. This ability is what has helped make him the icon that he is today....

re: Haggard--greatest country singer of all time - armytiger96
Haggard is one of my favorites, but I think you have to give that title to George Stait. For that era of singers I would rank Waylon as the best followed by Cash and Merle....

re: Smoky Mountain National Park - armytiger96
We went last year with kids of similar age and had a wonderful trip. I highly recommend getting a cabin Wears Valkey as several others have mentioned. It is secluded but only a few minutes from park entrance and Pigeon Forge. We had a great time in Cade's Cove, but we went early in the mornin...

re: OT Lawyers and Cops - police officer directing traffic - armytiger96
If he has his car and is in his official uniform he's not off duty. He is on a detail assignment that is being paid for by a private entity rather than the tax payers. Another example would be traffic cops escorting a funeral detail or working security/managing traffic at LSU game....

re: EBR COA Spent $12,000 on conference in Chicago with 5,000 seniors on wait list - armytiger96
A first class ticket from BTR to Chicago on UAL will run around $1,300 per person. So it would make sense that they spent over $6,000 on airfare. I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I'm pretty sure there are some ethics rules/laws that would prevent government employees from flying first cla...
