  1. [h=2]God Bless the enlisted man.............[/h] Is Sex "work"? A Marine Colonel was about to start the morning briefing to his staff. While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing, the colonel decided to pose a question to all assembled. He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question of just how much of sex was "work" and how much of it was "pleasure?" A Major chimed in with 75-25% in favor of work . A Captain said it was 50-50%. A lieutenant responded with 25-75% in favor of pleasure, depending upon his state of inebriation at the time. There being no consensus, the colonel turned to the PFC who was in charge of making the coffee. What was HIS opinion? Without any hesitation, the young PFC responded, "Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure." The colonel was surprised and asked why. The PFC said, "Well, sir, if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them."
  2. The only Q2 I ever got (no Q3's thank god) was on an evaluator upgrade checkride in the 37th; the Chief who was administering the evaluator check and I got into a screaming match during the -1, somehow I knew a Q1 wasn't going to happen on that checkride.
  3. Pilot did pretty good and made a purty landing. Had a seven minute flight in Germany that we had #1 shut down and #2 and #4 screwing up real bad, we elected to keep the other two engines running since we were on downwind. (#4 overspeed 105% and #2 underspeed 93%)
  4. Ahhh the good old Bat 60 mission, that was always the gravy TDY, a real good money maker too!!! I started seeing these Herks delivering my mail (when I was mx on AWACS) while I was TDY to Riyahd then a couple years later I was on that C-130 delivering the mail to my old friends. I have known several "Interesting Loads", hell some of them are probably still in the service. They were always good for getting your butt in big trouble off station :)
  5. I knew Lynn Hebdon, he was 16SOW examiner (CMSGT) the last few years I was flying. Gotta say I didn't really care for him too much.
  6. I used to have some pics of that crash but they were on the computer that disappeared from my household goods on my return pcs (one whole container out of five disappeared grrrr damn thieves)
  7. I'll take the connie, since they wouldn't give me the Credible sport plane it would make up for that :)
  8. Had a check ride with Bitchin Butch Orend, at the start of the check he hands me 10 pennies and says every time you f*ck up you have to pay for it, if you go broke you fail. Boy I had a death grip on those pennies. As for a philosophy on administering checkrides, base the required knowledge level on who the evaluee is (ie basic, instructor, etc.) and realize that there is a ladder to knowledge levels and some folks are always going to be on the bottom of that latter knowledge wise and as long as they can fumble their way through the books for most items its going to be a Q1 whereas an instructor had better know most things in the book without direct reference to the books. My longest ground eval (about 16-20 hours of it), I thought he was just busting my chops for the hell of it but a month later I was headed to instructor school!! George, do you remember Ron Hennion? I think he was in that course evaluation with you.
  9. I will admit that the medal does have a place in today's airfarce, but the placement is totally out to lunch; I see it as a one pointer equivalent to the achievement medal.
  10. Naa when I go out I want Max Torque showing on all four
  11. Is the outflow hole out on the outer edge of the stab leading edge open? Paint shop and wash rack have been known to cover these up
  12. Yeah, I have never agreed with that limitation, if I had gone out to an E mod or a MC-P and we didn't have significant pressure by 20 or 30 % we had a problem. Only times I didn't see almost system normal pressure by on speed usually it was a shelled pump; I think I would shut down and at least check filter buttons before pressing on with a pump that didn't read normal until 30 seconds after on speed.
  13. Wow, I am betting that is one huge list of equipment, you may want to contact one of PDM's direct for this question as you probably wont get that lengthy of an answer here. Brindisi Italy used to have a PDM, not sure if they still do or not.
  14. Mask Helmet Parachute (check the canopy) four line mod seat kit stear into the wind prepare to land scream obscenities when you realize you broke your ankle I think this is how it was supposed to go, been a couple of years since I had my refresher.
  15. Well I was supposed to fly an 8 hour overwater when Mark Vogelgesang showed up for a no notice check - great just the way I wanted to start the day. Well we went to Zahrbruken and picked up pax that were eventually going to Sembach, well lucky us when we broke ground we lost GB oil press and then the prop locked up on us at about 30% on the shutdown. I spent the next 12 hours getting grilled and figured "finally" its over - NOT, he jumped a train the next but not before telling me to come by his office when I got back for more debreifing. Crap another 8 hour day and he finally gave up, I would never have made a good evaluator, got fired from the job twice before I could even get started:) Back to the prop brake, I loved it when I got one off the gunship wreck, its so much easier to explain what helical splines/gears are if you can just show them.
