API's is pretty gay when it comes to tests. They are so poorly written that sometimes the only difference between choice A) and B) are the words AND, OR, BUT, MAYBE, SOMETIMES, etc. The tests are totally word fucked. The material isn't hard, but deciphering what they are trying to get at is.

I just love that when I was in high school, I could have a cell phone on my person during tests and it wasn't an issue. But as a sworn military officer and grown adult, I'm probably going to use it to cheat.

It's especially obnoxious because of all the down time. Go to swim in the morning, get out two hours before scheduled, class leader wants to start early and gets in contact with the instructor...surprise! Everybody in the class scattered, and there's no way to contact them.

Whatever happened to the kid that broke into the API spaces and "liberated" an exam a few years ago?

He tried to become a SWO. Actually heard about it from a buddy of mine I went to OCS with, as that incident happened while I was in A-Pool. He said he heard the guy talking about his ship in a bar one lovely Pensacola night. He walked up to him and struck a conversation and the guy started bragging apparently about what he did. Then talked about how he was still going to go on to become this and that and how he'd really "stuck it to the Navy" and won.

I don't think he ever showed up to the ship. He is no longer with the Navy.

Dude, quit being such a damn cheapass. Unless you owe the Russian Mob some money or something then get the damn phone. Buy an Ipad while you're at it. Between my DROID and my Ipad, I can pretty much study for a brief/flight, have the weather, file the flight plan, jam to some tunes, and have a little time left over to play a game of Angry Birds or two all while sitting AT THE BAR and drinking a beer or 6.

Do you need it? NO. Will you thank us later? Yes. You're welcome (in advance).
I get where you are coming from. Fvckin' around with my roommate's droid today...pretty sweet. Can't imagine how sweet and convenient it must be for weather/flight planning/other tools. Now it comes down to what to get...Just have to take care of that whole Russian Mob thing first...
