re: I got beef with old veterans - bubblehead26
[quote]Tigeralum2008[/quote] On usetafish, it was A Gang and M Div going at it. Each div had 3 or 4 workout buffs. Secret weapon for A Gang was a 5'4 guy who was skinny as a twig, but very good at wrestling and wrapping people up. Actually saw someone get thrown over to an open hatch in AMR2-3...

re: The USS Gerald R. Ford - bubblehead26
Catapults are working fine and all issues are resolved. They're having trouble with the arresting gear now. I think the idea of going to emals is to possibly reduce reactor power usage, prolonging the life of the ship. Also, less strain on the ship's backbone during cat shots. Current steam ca...

re: Born in the wrong century - bubblehead26
I think it would be fun to go to the 1870s in the Wild West. Be a sooner and claim my 200 acres of land, smoke cigars and drink whiskey without hearing my pesky wife nag about it, and roll in to saloons with spurs clinging ...

[quote]50 knots worth of wind across the flight deck [/quote] Oh lord no. Flight deck is off limits if wind speed gets to 35 knots across the deck. It doesn't take much headwind to launch planes. It's recovering them that requires a little more And I would say a bare empty carrier with no j...

re: The USS Gerald R. Ford - bubblehead26
Still a lot of work left to do on it though. They rushed to get it out of the shipyard that a lot of the internals are still bare metal. Still has some mechanics to get worked out as well. Sitting next to the ship I work on, which is 40 years old, it looks phenomenal. Not to make mine sound bad,...

re: First strike using a nuke - bubblehead26
Kim would never launch first. Even as dumb as he is, he's smart enough to know not to launch. He just wants the capability to think he's relevant. But, out of all people, I think NK would launch first, probably by error, and we would decimate them with a west coast boomer...

re: Do you like your boss? If not, why? - bubblehead26
I'm indifferent as well. She doesn't understand my job, so she tries to micromanage to learn what I do. And, unfortunately, I have to care if people like me because I can get canned if they start bitching like millenials do....

re: Question For Current/Recently Deployed Military - bubblehead26
Realistically, probably encounter slight difficulties. I'm sure I could hide a dead hooker's body on the carrier and offload it in Bahrain, but what's the point? If he's looking to bring one to sale, or take one from there to bring home, he's looking at multiple years of confinement if and when ca...
