It all seems to have come full circle, eh?

Great choices, I've heard Wainwright can be one hell of a good time. Unfortunately I doubt I'll be headed either of those directions soon but my schedule is so unpredictable who knows. I'll be sure to let you know.

Congratulations man, that's one hell of an accomplishment.

What did you end up branching? Know where you're headed yet?

Sometimes General John Goodman just gotta flex

He's a 4-star general with a long tab, he understands the power of the uniform.

Welcome back man, hope all is well

Pretty much, yeah.

One hell of a clown show

North Carolina has a little bit of everything-from beautiful beaches to the smokey mountains it can be a beautiful place. In between, however, it's all swamp and just rather miserable. The triangle (Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Durham) is full of wonderful people and places. I made all kinds of friends in the triangle, it's a great mixing pot of academics. Asheville is one hell of a hippy adventure town. Wander outside these places and it can get a little sketchy. I spent a lot of time out in the boonies for work, meaning I had to endure quite a few racist rants and later the classic Hillary tirades. If I had to take a guess NC's least favorite state is NC. The city folks dislike the rural folk and vice versa. Oh and my god the weather is also terrible, I've had enough humidity to last a lifetime.

An important to note to make on all this-I lived in Fayetteville, which has been aptly called "Fayettenam". It took me a long time and many weekend trips to appreciate the positive side of NC.

North Carolina is both the best and worst state I have ever lived in.

My contribution.. It was my first time making bread. Not perfect, but I kind of eyeballed the proportions so I'm pleasantly surprised with how well it turned out.

All military medics receive their EMT-B. It's not a paramedic license so their scope is definitely limited, but it's more than nothing. Withholding paramedic licenses absolutely makes sense; the training received and average proficiency of a military medic is far below that of a paramedic (except when it comes to trauma). That being said, the average military medic would be more than able to assist with COVID-19 response with minimal additional training. The real problem comes with the posse comitatus act. There are certain ways to get around it, but that's one hell of a dangerous precedent.

Nice spot. I’m interested as to how this plays out

At the possible expense of looking dumb, it simply looks like the percentiles were flipped..

So my city has three confirmed cases of coronavirus. One of my coworkers went to Venice this past weekend. A more distant coworker went to Milan a week and a half ago. I recently met an absolutely incredible woman and things are just going so smoothly. I have an essay due Sunday which I have almost completely neglected. My check engine light is on; I think I should be able to get to in May. And most importantly I have until Friday to decide if I would like to spend an extended vacation in the desert, which I am considering far more seriously than I had anticipated. It appears that everything has decided to happen all at once.
