  1. Duolingo couldn't have come out with it a year earlier?! I might have to dive into this. Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeee Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Oops. Never realized I was tagged here. Darth, the videos didn't show on my phone, so I have nothing intelligent to say, other than "listen to@Machete and @The Most Loathed." Just posting to say that I wasn't ignoring the tag. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Here again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Love the wordplay on the Gnome and Clay Sure Tie. And the gloves! https://goo.gl/images/57m1Ml Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. In my quest to be a better lawyer, I finally sat down and set up some Lexis alerts. A few searches related to military justice, criminal procedure, and the fundamental right to marry will be run every Saturday, and updates will come my way. The first two are for my job, and the last for an article idea. Woot. Last night's farewell dinner went well, although I ended up drinking more than I expected. We finished the night at a small bar, and my friend's Japanese girlfriend translated our drink orders. I ordered a double of bourbon (neat), and got two glasses. We all assumed that the barte
  6. I didn't realize MSP had an MLS team. That was something I wish I'd done when I was in Oregon. Portland and Seattle right there and I never went. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. You found me out. While I like to tell people I'm a military lawyer, I'm really part of the ultra-secret Jedi Strike Force, the pride of Special Operations Command. We're like the Seals, except way cooler Dream big, right? Okay, so now on to real things. Remember those three things I said I was going to do this week? Pffft... that didn't happen. Well, the trifecta didn't happen. I did get my friend's taxes fixed. But the other two? Nope. Work has been all manner of busy this week. Now that I'm basically done with taxes, I'm all in on my new job: adverse act
  8. It's okay. I have a lightsaber. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Funny story, but they didn't make us qualify on anything. The commandant at COT said there was no time in the course schedule to carve out for that. I know, it's going to sound bizarre. But it's a true story. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Not according to the internet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Where is Yakushima? My big goal is to knock out all three holy mountains this year (Fuji, Haku, and Tateyama). Hakusan is on tap for Fourth of July weekend.
  12. And after posting about how I struggle with feeling like I'm accomplishing anything, I had a day where I: 1. Started garlic beef stew in the crockpot; 2. Had a five hour (!!) conversation with my brother, mostly about movies and Magic: the Gathering (got some good ideas for my tribal cat deck); 3. Did S&S; 4. Started prepping ingredients for tomorrow's crockpot bonanza; 5. Read the Air Force Instruction on marriage in overseas commands (law review article idea; has potential, must actually research (that's the hard part)); and 6. Finished the amended taxes (longhand, nonethe
  13. Sorry, Tank. I didn't mean to give the impression I was critiquing your (plural you, for your organization) approach. I just used your post as a jumping-off point to talk about my organization's issues. Without clearly delineating that leap, naturally, because it made perfect sense to me in my head, which is no good to readers.
  14. Hey, a post entirely without spoilers. It's time for the weekly roundup, starting with whether I accomplished my Rule of 3 1 last week. Which I did. I was almost tempted to say f*** it and wear my mess dress (the brides wouldn't mind), but common sense got the better of me. There is no way I want to pack that ensemble for an international flight unless I am required to do so. The week itself was fine. Training was solid all week. I flipped the crazy switch yesterday and cranked out 65 nonstop two-handed swings with the 24 kg bell. That's an improvement of eight reps over two
  15. The first half of your post is 100% true. The problem I've noticed is that it's very hard to have a policy conversation about the second half. It's not about blaming the victim (saying "you should have done X and Y and Z, but didn't, so you deserved it"). It's about discussing prudent actions to take in order to reduce vulnerability. But on a policy level, even trying to start that discussion turns immediately into "you're blaming the victim!" And yet, educating people on those prudent preventative measures would be tremendously helpful. It would be lovely if we could focus entirely on the off
