Useless in API, though. You aren't allowed to have cell phones in the building.
Apparently the temptation to use a phone to cheat is too great, so instead of treating students like adults, "No phones for you!" is the policy.
Whatever happened to just kicking cheaters out? And how hard are the tests that you actually have to cheat?
either way, if you ain't cheatin' you ain't tryin'
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.
Whatever happened to the kid that broke into the API spaces and "liberated" an exam a few years ago?
Don't know, but the actual crowbar he used is mounted on top of his class's picture right next to the Flight Lead door.
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.
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.
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...
Somethin' gotta prepare ya for the P3 NATOPS writtens...
I feel like an important businessman with my Blackberry, even though I'm getting pointless facebook notifications and emails from that one place I ordered from three years ago. The ladies are impressed.
Deere1450 at the bar...
Babe: "OMG, like, is that a blackberry Deere1450?"
Deere1450: "Why, yes it is. I'm currently doing really important shit right now. Go get me a beer and we can about it later."
