While the Air Force was a good idea for me in whole, I hated the whole time in! I'm NOT a person that does well in that environment of "orders" and rank. I got myself in lots of trouble all the time not acting "proper" with those of higher rank, but lower on the intelligence measure.

What are you planning on going in as/for? Have you spoken to a recruiter? What have they "PROMISED" you if you've gone to speak to someone already?...LOL!! Just remember that you may be promised the world, but in the end Uncle Sam will put you where he needs you regardless of the "promises".

I for one, got lucky on my job and experience in the AF. I went in wanting something else, was promised it, and ended up where they wanted me. It worked out better though.

Army for some kind of repairing of...something. Radar, satelites, or just something in meteorology if they have anything. I did talk to a recruiter however I never asked what options I had for a job. I took my ASVAB pre-test and scored an 83 which I thought was decent. Turns out that's like, top 10 percentile. Made me happy. I was below average in school, so. Cool thing is, I'm not too far from a base here, so I could (in theory) work for the army a few miles from my house and family. If I get stationed somewhere else, meh. No big deal.

You could go into the airforce and work as an airframe mechanic.


Come out with shitloads of experience in a job that pays damn well.

Can't join the airforce. I have too many tattoos on my arms.

To the sidenote; thank you. Things really have gotten better in the last couple of years.

Wouldn't this only be a problem if you were to wear shortsleeves? Or will they not let you in at all to begin with. I've seen many AF people with tattoos that extend below the shortsleeve line...they simply cannot wear the shortsleeve shirts in any uniform.

The new and improved rules for the AF is no more than 20% of your forearms can be covered in tattoos. I have roughly 45-50% covered. One of which will extend out just a tad from the end of a longsleve.

I made the pie and it's really good but a bit sweet for me. I'm thinking maybe sprinkling some crushed pistachios or walnuts next time.

But yeah, everyone should make this. She will def love it.

Here's what mine looked like. Looking back at Zalight's pic, I might have overdone it a bit with the condensed milk.

That's probably why it seemed sweet, there is a pissload of sugar in condensed milk.

So I made the pasta last night and it turned out pretty good. Def easier to make than the pie, and def delicious.
I skipped on the goat cheese and thought about feta but completely forgot. I liked it with some parmesan and crushed pepper though.
Here's a pic of what was left

Best thread ever! Always wonder how to make decent pasta sauce ever since going to an Italian restaurant in NYC last year, the stuff you get out of a jar just doesn't cut it.
