  2. This has been done many times. I would think the desire to stay alive is even stronger with someone with even more to go back to. So get married and have 4 or 5 kids and you only have to serve 15 years or so to retire? Suppose it's a helicopter mechanic. Is it really a good idea for them to be out of the loop for a year at a time? So, he's out for a year, and then it's 3 or 4 months retraining to get current and then ooops, she pops out another so see ya next year. Don't like your assignment or boss or whatever, just get your wife knocked up. I think at minimum these years off should not count towards retirement.

    I lived in Reno, Nevada for my last 10yrs in the US. Really enjoyed it. Lot of entertainment in town, international airport, close to Lake Tahoe, University of Nevada etc. and close to Calif. if you have to visit.
  4. Would you want to go into battle next to a person that has a newborn? I would suggest that if the moms get a year off so should the dads.

    A green card holder can legally purchase and own a firearm in most states, but let us not divert too far off topic, this is not a gun debate.
  7. 40 patreons at that level? Hmm, maybe more like 4. Heck even 4 is still 120 K / yr 'If someone / anyone is willing to pay - TAKE IT!!!!' Wonder what this article has done for her viewership ratings / ad revenue?

    Thieves Steal Woman's Car, She Steals It Back

    How do you know she had theft insurance? I never had more than state minimum coverage, and maybe her card was set to, let's say, a $500 limit, etc. A good risk/reward compared with having to buy a new car.

    Neither one of them will be eligible to purchase firearms, but I assume you're joking anyway.

    This is a fair point actually. Good reality check thank you
  13. I was in the Johnnie Walker store in Miami airport over Christmas time, they had the 50 year old was going for $3,600 USD. Pretty cool little store, that had taste testing if you liked

    Or move up to Boston and deal with a bunch of condescending pricks who can’t even stand being around themselves that when they retire they move to the Carolinas and pretend they don’t shop at Walmart. I joke, I joke. I love Boston and the Carolinas are nice but I think you are optimistic in thinking you have a choice. Residencies are like university applications: it all depends on where you get accepted. You might not have much of a choice.
  15. Shout out to kellog eye institute, worked there a couple of years, go blue! DEFINITELY give serious consideration to the shingrix vaccine.

    Filipino Superstitions

    Can't eat or drink anything cold during certain times of the month Keep bottles of water under bed to wash away bad dreams
  17. Up to $2,500 / mo? x 4,000 = $10,000,000 / mo - even 1% of that is $100,000 / mo

    While seemingly not rising to the level of your obvious sophistication. The simple, religious and not very smart rednecks are the core of this country. They provided the framework to support your elitist lifestyle. Without them you might be spouting your sophistication as you scrabble in your garden to grow something to eat. Or arising early for the drive to the General store to see if they have received anything.
  19. Personally think that one year is excessive. Six months might be a good compromise. There would have to be exceptions due to the needs of the USMC. Only time will tell.
  20. My first dose of Shingrix knocked me out for 5 days, the second for only 2 days. Pretty serious flu like conditions. But still I would rather that than get shingles, seen too many people suffering through that.

    But probably kind of necessary for the wife's medical program.

    As others have said, the big cities are very expensive. I would recommend checking out the redneck states - North and South Carolina are very nice, Georgia is cool and West Virginia is gorgeous. If you are living in a country area, it will be much like living in the Philippines - the people are simple, religious and not very smart. You can also buy all the guns you want but you will have to deal with a lot of firearm suicides. Drug addiction (hillbilly heroin) is pretty bad as well. But at least you will have Wal-Mart. If I was going to live in the US again, I would probably choose the Carolinas. I spent four years there at Fort Bragg and traveled around quite a bit. It's a beautiful area with temperate weather, gorgeous parks and kick ass white sand beaches.
