Nah, I was kinda close to the lower end but well within normal ranges for enlistment. I think the lowest acceptable was like uh, 100 pounds or something? When I was 174 I had like no neck thanks to wearing a fully loaded vest + assault pack all day in the desert for like 15 months.

Does a weight waiver even apply to being underweight? My recruiter said I had to gain 15 lbs before Basic, there was never any mention of a waiver.

I've seen that. I've just never seen anyone get that kind of treatment out of that environment, never too skinny, always fatties.

I myself was deep in denial about having acid reflux so shoveling a bunch of food down my throat really fast didn't work. I also didn't go get an eating waiver and was hungry all the time. When they weighed me at the end of basic training I was 5'10 135lbs, I'd lost something like 25lbs in 7 weeks. Oops. The funny thing is they never said anything about it.

When you can't finish even the first portion of food in the allotted time (which was 4 minutes until week 7), the extra is worthless. PLUS everybody else in your platoon is thinking "Why do YOU get special treatment, shitbag?" Any amount of dirty looks and a few mysteriously rearranged fire watches would be a small price to pay for extra bacon in the morning, but you never get a bite of it.

Idk, I had no problem hammering out my entire portion in the allotted 5 minutes I was given, then again I also didn't stack my plates to the brim with loving bagels and peanut butter, I just ate what was given to me by the nice black lady who would say "Whatcha havin' baby?" until like week 4 when my about-to-be off the trail DSs let us have 10 minutes to eat. then it was bagels and raisin bran on the daily

I only just got around to getting hangouts on my phone the other day. Turns out one of the folks from my old unit is making it reallllllly difficult to find her. Only reason I got curious was she had some family pop up in the obits up north (we're both from roughly the same shithole area of Illinois). No facebook or any other easy-ish way to track her down, but some lovely google-fu and I found her only social media-ish account on google, downloaded hangouts and sent her a message.

She just up and disappeared for a long time, bunch of the guys were getting worried, y'all know how it is. Turns out she's fine, married, and living not far from where I'd last known. Just glad she hadn't lost her poo poo and ate a bullet.



My anger today was primarily driven by the VA. After my last post at the hospital, my appointment was bumped up an hour and change and I managed to get a chance to redirect some anger at comcast for billing me for an HD box I didn't have, and providing less than acceptable speeds considering I'm paying for 50mb.

Oh, and I dropped off my revolver at the gunsmith. loving rear sight with it's busted-rear end screw. That's another $30-50 I shouldn't have to spend, especially since the loving thing was bought new.

Beardchat: spent Sunday and most of Monday showing an old AF bud + his roommate around Chicago; they'd grabbed a hostel in Wicker Park.

My buddy kept giving me weird looks because fuckin' of course all the bars in Wicker Park are filled with beards, flannel/denim shirts, and pub caps, which is all I fuckin' packed also.


It was like i had inadvertently dressed up for a "poo poo hipster" theme party all night. Still got laid though.

I've been wearing flannel shirts since I was a baby because that's what my dad wore when he climbed radio towers to replace antennas and poo poo. He said the pattern kept wasps away. I wanted to be cool like my dad and so I've worn flannel/plaid patterns/denim poo poo my whole life because I'm kind of a reject idiot. I've been able to grow a beard since 6th grade so flannel and beard are what I roll with. loving hipsters appropriated my culture.

Yep.

However, it's a Rossi. Made by Taurus. I would rather pay a gunsmith up front than deal with their track record for warranty work timelines. 3-6 months is apparently "optimistic" at best.


the guy that checked it in at the shop laughed at the electrical tape that's been holding the rear sight on for the past month and two range trips. then said he'd have used duct tape. this is the pistol I shot for my carry permit, with ten rounds at 7 yards (farthest they care to test you here) left to shoot after the rear sight flew back and slapped across my face like the tiniest black metal brazilian made cock. still shot a 92.

If you want cheap drinks in Waikiki you need to hit up the hideaway during happy hour. $1 bottles. It's down the alley between the 7-11 on Ena Rd and Kalakaua and the Irish rose. I drank cheap at Arnold's and kings pub too, but that was partially because I was friends with the bartender.

Not gay just a bad decision when you should have known better.

If you go back for seconds... Well...

As for weight chat, went from 120ish enlisting to 150 when I was med boarded. Gave up on life, dropped to 106, and was told to either change or die in the next year or two. Now back to 150. Not near as in shape as I was in but I'll eventually :effort: back into shape. Probably when the Starbucks clerks start thinking I'm old
