So I've just spent the last couple of hours catching up on 2 1/2 weeks of AWs after being on vacation with my daughter in Europe. From what I can see, here's the highlights: - History majors can be fighter pilots, being a fighter pilot is more of a state of mind than an actuality, and there is a new douche bag named Topgun1991 on the boards. - Otto didn't get an award for his last det. - Huggy U2 still has his A-6 NATOPS for sale. - Some Air Force dude ruined flight suits for his base. - Brett is going to the puzzle palace. - Air Force Academy cadets aren't forest fire fighters. - MIDNJAC has been forever tainted by his Airwarriors membership. - Some drunk Russians stole an AN-2 Did I miss anything good? What I learned while I was away: - Rome is not only hot in June, it is fucking miserably hot. - Naples is an even bigger shit hole today than it was in 1995. - Except for the Colosseum and Forum, everything that was Roman in Rome is now Catholic. - Spend more time in London and less in Rome. - They have condom vending machines on the streets in Livorno, Italy - Out of shape, 50 year old fat fucks should not climb the leaning Tower of Pisa on a 97 degree day. - Out of shape, 50 year old fat fucks should not climb Mount Vesuvius on a 98 degree day. - When some idiot decides he wants to climb up the outside of the Eiffel Tower, they make everyone else get off. - The streets in Paris were not paved until the mid 1700s. This meant drainaged sucked and the residents usually walked around in an ankle deep muck consisting of mostly their own shit (sewage). - Even a retired P-3 NFO can make Captain at a major airline.
