    Thanks for taking the time to listen to me wine, but I kind of just need some advice kind of... I leave for Marine Corps basic training in exactly one week, and at the start my mom was proud as could be...I was kind of her pride; always telling everyone how her oldest is going to carry on the family tradition of military service, and become a Marine. Things were great for a real long time (I've been DEPed in for a year now...) until this past month. Obviously I am scared, and nervous to go to basic, but I mean who isn't? I'm going away from my family, and opting to go bust my ***, and get screamed at heh. So that's hard in its own right, but on top of it, my mother is absolutely heartbroken, especially recently. I mean that's my momma, you know? Worst thing in the world is to see your momma cry, and then know its because of you...It's really killing me. I don't even know anymore...I'm sure others that have gone into the service have felt this before, but what's a guy to do? I'm really sorry for the whiny post...Any response is appreciated, but please none of the thank yous or anything...While appreciated, I didn't enlist for that. Thank you so much for reading this.

  • Playstation Plus games, and physical copies?

    So with Playstation Plus they offer their 'Instant Game Collection' where you can download games for free, and if you downloaded them atleast once, you can have them even when they are out of rotation so essentially you have them forever. Among these games currently in rotation are Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and Gravity Rush; I previously... show more
    So with Playstation Plus they offer their 'Instant Game Collection' where you can download games for free, and if you downloaded them atleast once, you can have them even when they are out of rotation so essentially you have them forever. Among these games currently in rotation are Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and Gravity Rush; I previously bought the actually game cards, but now that I have Plus, I should be able to keep them. On to my question...Should I just sell my physical copies of the two games, and use the money to get a bigger memory card, or am I misunderstanding how Plus works? Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and I appreciate any help.

    Hello, im going to MEPS tomorrow for the Marines, and there's one thing I am slightly nervous about. I told the truth to the recruiter about everything, but there's one thing he said I don't have to tell the people at MEPS, and it would make everyone's life a little bit easier. Although embarrassing, basically I had constipation problems for about a month (It was due to a lot of stress; I won't get into the details.), but basically I went, and got a CAT scan. I wasn't given any medication, so there is no record of me getting any. This was the only occasion that I have been to the hospital. If I tell the people at MEPS that I have never been to the hospital, like my recruiter told me to say, is there possibly any consequences? If so, is there a better way to go about it without having to reschedule my date?

Looking at me, you'd guess my max is 115. I understand the leaner I stay the more flexible I am, but I'd just like to be able to see all my work. So what'dya guys think, how do you increase your mass? (I started taking a protein powder 2 weeks ago.)

  • Adapter disconnection issues?

    My adapter sits flat on my desk, and it will say it's not plugged in, but if I make it lean forward a little bit it connects...What's wrong with it, and how can I fix it? I currently have it taped so it's on a constant angle.
