The NFL has a retirement program that is basically a trust fund so that they don't end up living under bridges and overpasses within 5 years of retirement.

Okay, that's too much of a coincidence! When stationed with a Marine company, my 1st Sgt was also a chain smoker, and ran the 3 mile PFT with everyone (had two lungs though). He was a wise ***, hated our CO, and so just to piss him off, stopped and looked at his watch at the end of his run, standing right in front of the finish line with the CO watching. He'd light up a smoke, then right before his run failure time passed, he'd hop across the finish line, cigarette in his mouth!GHETTOBLASTER » Yesterday, 4:55 pm » wrote: ↑
My lengthy AIT is what kept me from getting orders for Vietnam.
Imagine the sense of relief when you first realize the war just got cancelled.
At my first permanent duty station [Ft Carson @ 7000 feet ASL] the 1st Sgt was a guy who only had 1/2 of 1 lung and was a chain smoker...and he still ran whenever we did..!.
I used to run after work from the barracks to a little bridge that was 2 miles from the barracks...just so I could smoke a joint in peace without having to share it with all the FLAT BROKE MOOCHERS AND BARRACKS RATS..
We were probably one of first group of Navy recruits where none were sent to Vietnam during the withdrawal in 1974. I expected some heavy-duty physical training but was very disappointed in the lack of it. We had a three-mile run competition, and 1st place would have the "honor" of becoming the mail runner. I wanted it badly, just to get out of the daily grind. So happens I ended up competing for 1st and losing at 2nd place just behind a tall, skinny high school track star. Ended up right on his ***, but thought I coughed out a lung when finished.GHETTOBLASTER » Yesterday, 1:57 pm » wrote: ↑
the State Of Misery was my first experience with heat and humidity and poisonous snakes ...next to Ft Polk LA and Ft Benning GA....a perfect place to train for Vietnam.
It was also my first experience with 3.2 BEER...I never even heard of it before.
Upon graduation, they treated us to a weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks which was pretty nice.
One of the first things I noticed upon arrive at Leonard wood was what looked like dozens of '55 CHEVY TAXI CABS running all over the post. Later I learned they were "CHECKER" BRAND CABS that I suppose never changed their styling from year to year..
While in Basic I qualified shooting left handed on the first round, right handed on the second round and tied for high in the company......
I wonder if anyone else ever did that...?
BTW...one of the recruits in our company ran a 4 something mile in Army boots ....we never saw him after that.... my guess he was invited to West Point

We had a lot of "backwoods" recruits.
Guys who were illiterate and needed others to help read and write letters for them.
One guy needed help tieing his boots.
Another couple guys from the DOGPATCH USA fainted while standing in the shot line at the sight of the needle.
One guy I'll never forget. His name was HOMER GLOSSUP.
Poor Homer had "that 70 IQ look" and it seemed like on a daily basis he did something to prove that LOOKS ARE NOT ALWAYS DECEIVING....
One dark morning Homer some how managed to "fall in" with another COMPANY that was located 300 feet away from ours...
They made him "DUCK WALK" the entire way back to our company while squawking.."QUACK..!! QUACK..!! I AM A DUCK..!!"
That's one badass Indian! Our CC was a bit of a ******. But when I accidently mailed my issue raincoat home with my civilian clothes and such, I was ordered to run laps around the entire company for a LONG time repetitively screaming "I AM A DUMB ****! I AM A DUMB ****!" Fun times!GHETTOBLASTER » Yesterday, 12:55 am » wrote: ↑
He had the same steady flow of jibber jabber that Drill Instructor Hartman had.
He took his sweet time in all of our faces.
He really got in the face of a BIG AMERICAN INDIAN [who already had a regulation hair cut] and before you know it Drill Sgt Snakeman ordered the Indian to drop and start doing pushups.
After the Indian knocked out a few push ups the Drill Sgt said something wicked, mean and nasty to the Indian as he stepped up onto the Indians back with both boots...!
FULL WEIGHT ON HIS BACK.
The Indian never stopped pumping out push ups and the rest of us were just looking at each other by then.... WTF DID I SIGN UP FOR..!!!
We marched from there to an "in processing" area where we all got split up and sent to different training companies.
I never saw that Indian again.
I forgot about that scene with the Indian...but some time later figured that the scene was staged and that the "Indian Recruit" was possibly another Drill Sgt.....
If so, I'll bet they have had many laughs about it.......

The real danger is the development of connected personal computers, in the form of cellphones by tracking every action and every word of every citizen, which is what China is doing. Soviet Communism was only a threat to the US because the USSR had nukes, as do Russia, the US, the uk and several other countries.
The most serious danger is the rule of individual nations by national oligarchies, like the ones in China, Hungary, Russia, the DPRK and such, This involves the destruction of actual democracies and their replacement by oligarchies of the wealthy. That is what Bannon wants, that is what Putin wants and that is what Trump is hoping for.

99% of your "people problems" will be with Libtards who are fleeing from their Pet Pavement Apes.
Be sure about the local water situation.
In the higher elevations it can be sketchy.
Wyoming is quite nice.
The area east north east of Glacier Peak Washington is great if you don't mind being really in the middle of nowhere.
And we all know CPS and the police did nothing to the big fat **** for posting this photo...child endangerment and feral street monkey indoctrination. Thug nigs are allowed to practice *** without repercussions.
Amazing. One may always expect life-altering prose from you. GED level at best.
