      bet you fuckers thought I was though. Just busy. Work sends me all over the place. Traveling just over once a month on average.


      Um... That is all.

      My OT rate is only 21 cents higher than my straight pay rate. I take whatever I can, though.

      Just thought you'd like to know.

      Got a $5k raise last week. Word. Next year, it's $7k. Three years after that, I'll be close to what I should be making.

      So somethings been bugging me lately. Quite a few people have talked about how college students should get a bailout from their loans. I say, FUCK THAT, AND FUCK YOU.

      See, there's something called being responsible. My parents saved money and sent me to college. We didn't take fancy vacations. We never had all the greatest luxuries, we never wore fancy clothes. My parents never bought me a car. We had a modest house, and always lived well within our means. So the idea of college loan bailouts is offensive to me.

      What you are essentially saying, is that people like my parents should pay twice, so you can avoid paying once. If you want fair, then everyone that has *ever* gone to college should be getting a check.

      So... two weeks of travel down. I've got seven weeks of work travel. Three away, one back, two away, four back, two away. That puts me firmly into October.

      Also, the week before I started all this travel, I closed on a house. Guess what I'll be doing next week?

      In other news, my son learned to walk last week. While I was away on travel. I got to see him walk some on Skype, but.... fuck. Daddy's missing a lot of firsts lately. He also learned to crawl better (like a gorilla) and within the week he was walking a bit. But, daddy's gotta pay the bills. Just... fuck, man.

      It's been several months since I've really done any gaming. Mostly just binging on Netflix.

      I upgraded from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One. I love it, but there's not much I want to play on it. My COD Ghosts disc for 360 got scratched. That was three or four months ago. Probably for the best, though, because I was getting way too good at that game. Maybe it was just other people were getting worse at it, I don't know. Sure miss playing State of Decay, Skyrim, and Minecraft though. Xbone needs more games!

      Does anyone else see the irony of people using social media to complain about social media?

      So I dumped sponsor auto renew. RT doesn't seem to really support this site, and the fact they're fundraising for a movie while simultaneously alienating long time fans. Look, I get it, this is a business. It's about money, and I respect that. I would respect it more if they'd just come out and say it.

        Good call on her part. I did natural and that was slightly painful smiley8.gif

        Epidural after she was 3.5 cm for about three hours, but then real fast afterward. Since it was induced, we figured there'd be a good chance of needing the epi, and it was a good one - she didn't feel any pain whatsoever during the push.

        Way to go!!! Natural or drugs?

        Probably the only woman in the history of childbirth, when asked about her labor, described it as "not bad."

        We just got home from the hospital about half an hour ago. I'll probably put up a few pictures after I shower/eat/nap.

        I was just busting your chops a little for the "Chair Force" comment. All the branches are equally important, got friends and family that are serving/have served in almost all of them.

      Have you checked out this handguard rail option? Does not mount directly on the gas tube, so it does not transfer heat as an UltimAK would. With a Trijicon RMR, it allegedly does 100% co witness. I don't think an Aimpoint Micro or clone would mount much higher.

      I have not the patience nor political savy to add my own comments, but I can appreciate your sentiments in threads such as gun control and healthcare. It seems like we share a few opinions, and you seem like someone I might like to read more of, hence the friend request. Nice to meet you : )

        Just come at them with the most overused song:

        "Hey I just met you, and this is crazy, the end is nigh yeah, take second watch maybe".

        Thanks! I'm going to talk to some of my neighbors about it, but I'm unsure if they'll look at me like I'm crazy.

      Mind if I ask what your Post Doctoral Research is in?
      I'm curious.

        That Is a Mouthful!
        And crazily specific, and way beyond my A2 Chemistry
        I can only imagine how complicated it must be.

        No problem, it's iodine-induced stress corrosion cracking of zirconium alloys used in nuclear fuel cladding. (Quite a mouthful). Buuut. if you go to casl.gov, I'm under the MPO section, so it makes sense. I do all computational work.
