You're torn between 35F, 35N, and 35S?

Go 35N.

Is 35S bad 😶 That’s what I enlisted for..

I don't really understand what they do, and I don't necessarily think they do either. Like, I could say words to describe it, but I couldn't really get you the meat and potatoes for what they're really about. You'll probably go live a relatively cush life in some strat unit though, so w/e.

That’s what I see around on any post asking about it tbh 😂 thanks anyway

I have a case, some ram (but it’s ddr3 I think 😢), and a MSI Z97-G45 “gaming” motherboard. Pretty soon here I want to go through with building a gaming machine. So is this motherboard still relevant or should I start from scratch?

Couldn’t find any recent posts or information about this mobo; so sorry if this is a bad place to ask this.

If you don't care about having the latest and greatest, you can still have a reasonable gaming machine with those parts, though I would only advise buying a used CPU if you decide to use those parts. A new CPU for that motherboard and RAM will be more expensive than it's worth IMO.

So do you think it could handle FPS and city builder type games? If it can’t handle newer AAA games I might just scrap it tbh

I think city builders can be pretty CPU intensive, but an overclocked 4690k or 4790k should handle them well enough. I'd go look up benchmarks from the time to be sure though.

So my question is what preventative steps can I take to make sure everything stays in shape? I’ve heard of a fuel additive you can add for storage is that something I should be doing?

Will it be stored indoors? Covered? The battery should be fine with a good battery tender connected. I like putting in a high concentration of fuel stabilizer and running it for about 10 minutes to be sure the treated gas is everywhere. How will you protect it from mice?

Oh, thank you for your service, come home safe...

No it will be stored outdoors. With the mice thing I’m not sure never really had that problem before.

Thank you it’s always been a dream of mine.

I’ve seen cars that sat for 10 years start right up with fresh gas. Also others that sit for a year be a pain in the ass.

Another small tip is to park the car almost on empty. Then when you get back, take a small gas can of fresh gas with you.

You’ll be 99% okay just to let it sit as is with no preparation. So all this advice will be “just in case” kind of stuff.

For sure. I had a truck sit for two years and it started up after the battery was replaced and what not. But this is a much much newer car that that thing and I can’t afford to have anything go. I know it’ll realistically be fine but there is of course a chance that something could happen

Game dev tycoon is awesome. I wasted a lot of hours playing that

I recommend playing around with how much sand you have in it. When I get mine I like it at a certain amount

You’ll be fine.. also. Don’t get the American flag tattoo. I got the tattoo on my right shoulder and have got nothing but hate since I’ve joined the Army. 10/10 wouldn’t recommend.

Lmao yeah I know. I posted on army about getting an “army tattoo” back when I was a young and dumb redditor. Trust me I understand not to get one

Also I already have a used car that’s almost paid off so no mustangs in my future.

You’re learning quick, that’s good. Don’t marry strippers either.

I’m engaged to an amazing woman so no stingey strippers for me

I like Quizlet

Original Poster1 point · 1 month ago

I downloaded that earlier today

Anki is my go-to flash card app. I’ve recently started using Memrise when they have a useful deck because it promotes better memory I think. But mostly I make my own flash cards in Anki or import quizlet decks into Anki (there are many more quizlet decks available than user created Anki).

Why Anki? Most options and customization. It also has a Mac app (I don’t like web based things very much).

Original Poster1 point · 1 month ago

Yeah I recently bought Memrise and am really liking it. I Started writing down the vocabulary as I learn it. I feel like it’s a good path to start on.

I saw it in a post some where but can find it now. How do you cook grenades and switch to underhand throws?

Original Poster2 points · 1 month ago

Hold RB too cook grenade when it’s out. It has about 6 second fuse I’m pretty sure. And LT to switch to underhand. Make sure to switch back cause it can suck later on under handing one meant to be over.

Sweet thank you

Completely. Mini 14 has like, the best bullet velocity of the DMRs, just as the M16 has the best bullet velocity for the ARs. Meaning when you fire that round, it’ll take less time to hit the target than other rifles. That’s another reason the M16 is so deadly.

As for why I don’t use the Mini 14, I find that it carries too few attachments. It can’t take a grip or a cheek pad which both aid in stability. The 5.56 is a relatively light round compared to 7.62 which the AKM and SKS take, so it’ll usually take more rounds to bring someone down. Even with the recoil on the SKS, I’ve gotten so used to the time it takes for the sight to settle back into the firing position that I can normally two tap enemies. Two tap meaning putting two rounds into the head for a quick death.

see more

Yeah I figured that would be the reasoning. The good thing about the mini is that it kind of counteracts the need for the extra attachments since it’s a relatively well rounded weapon as far as recoil and weapon sway goes.

Thanks for debating with me lol. gonna try and refine my load out though you brought up some good points

Now I’m wondering if I should give the Mini a try.

see more

I definitely would put some more time on it. Especially paired with the Scar-L. Can’t go wrong with either one of those weapons

As the title says I am joining the army and plan on doing 20 years in service. I looked for related posts but couldn’t find what I was looking for. When I get out me and my wife want to build our own house. And I wanted to know the best way I could go about saving as much money as possible. 2 years from now I can start at putting 1500 a month away and potentially by the end of my career be putting away up to 3k. I put 1500k/mo into a compound interest calculator and it said after 18 years at at least 6% the balance total would be 578k.

I’m 20 and kind of ignorant on this topic specifically. What can I put my money in to maximize my earnings for when I retire from the army?

I think you are making a good decision by going in the military. It is what you make it. I was Navy for 6 years in the 1970's and it improved my whole life tremendously. I hope the Army does the same for you.

The military has access to the Thrift Savings Plan, or TSP. I don't know the specifics of what military can do on the TSP but iirc Dave Ramsey says to divide your TSP investments 40% C fund, 40% S fund, and 20% I fund.

Get on a budget asap if you are not on one now. Then work the Baby Steps with gazelle intensity.

Keep in mind that in the military you have at least three sources of wealth. One is your base pay. Another is the housing and family benefits. Some of those are not taxed. The third is health care. Once you leave the military your civilian income has to cover all of those.

Read the "Total Money Makeover" by Dave Ramsey more than once. When you have it pretty well memorized read "The Millionaire Next Door."

Currently half way through TMM gonna read the rest of it tomorrow.

That’s one of the many reason the military life has interested me the most are the benefits! Currently working on trying to stick to a budget but it’s hard. I love to plan ahead to doing all this TSP and saving set up is right up my alley

I did Intel in the Army as well. You'll love Ft. Huachuca. Don't bank on being able to stay 20 years. Things happen over the course of a somewhat physically tough career. I was planning on staying in until an injury.

This is not to discourage you but rather to say, don't put all your eggs in one basket. Good luck with your journey and thanks for deciding to serve!

Edit: I must also say that you'll make a heck of a lot more money in the civilian world after your Intel training than in the military so keep that in mind as well.

Original Poster2 points · 1 month ago

Yeah I understand completely. I’m definitely gonna try my best to stay in the 20 if it comes down to the point that getting out will be better for then I will no problem.

Do you mind mind if I PM you I have some questions about intel side of things
