I think it's funny too . I used to love those things when I was growing up and had quite the collection, my dad was in the Army and my mom is German.. I spent a lot of time on airplanes.

Sadly, I don't think they give them out anymore. My kids have never been given one and they have flown quite a bit too.

I thought that was a Simpsons quote at first. I don't recall it on Family Guy. I just remember Homer saying "It's pronounced nuculear honey, nuculear."

you should watch the boards more often...or at least frequent the girl power thread more often.

Blame deglamourization of alcohol...according to one of my API instructors, it's the worst thing that has ever happened to the military. Not sure I agree, buthe was pretty adament.

John, I see in Mr. Ricketts' profile here that he is an AME. Knowing this, I can assure you that he is more than qualified to "train you up" on the ways of the fleet whilst in Fallon.

Mr. Ricketts, these young Ensigns/JG's need an education that only you can offer, because it sure as hell sounds like they aren't getting it in flight school, anymore.

Oh, and John, what the heck is a "baller" cat?

I'm in week two of ground school for intermediate tailhook (systems exam this morning, first EP test tomorrow). I had plenty of training in college (not a boat school guy) but have had little opportunity to put it into practice during this whole flight school thing--except during the down time between phases.

A baller cat... I guess you could read it as "awesome" cat, but that doesn't quite cover it. I will try to think of a better explanation, and when I have time I will post some pictures of him. In the meantime, I should probably be studying EPs instead of reading and posting all over the boards!

Re: gift idea?

It's a T-45. All the EP's end with "Eject........As Req. (P/CP)"

Edit: Good luck on your tests.
