Bunker Talk: Turkey Day Weekend Edition (Part Deux)

Welcome to Bunker Talk. Happy Thanksgiving weekend. With over 3,000 comments on the first Bunker, I thought it was time to add another.

This is an open discussion post for the best commenting crew on the net, in which we can chat about all the stuff that went on this week that we didn’t cover. We can also talk about the stuff we did or whatever else grabs your interest. In other words, it’s literally an off-topic thread.

We offer you leftover Turkey Bird for this weekend’s top shot:

Atlantic Ocean (Mar. 9, 2005) – An F-14D Tomcat, assigned to the “Grim Reapers” of Fighter Squadron One Zero One (VF-101), makes an arrested landing on the flight deck aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71). VF-101 is the U.S. Navy’s sole Fleet Replacement Squadron for the F-14 Tomcat, training aircrew and maintenance personnel for the fleet. The squadron trains pilots, radar intercept officers, and enlisted personnel in the operation and employment of the F-14 Tomcat fighter. The “Grim Reapers” are currently embarked aboard Roosevelt participating in carrier qualifications in the Atlantic Ocean. U.S. Navy photo by Photographer’s Mate Airman Derek A. Allen (RELEASED)

Also, a reminder:

Prime Directives!

  • If you want to talk politics, do so respectfully and know that there’s always somebody that isn’t going to agree with you. 
  • If you have political differences, hash it out respectfully, stick to the facts, and no childish name-calling or personal attacks of any kind. If you can’t handle yourself in that manner, then please, discuss virtually anything else.
  • No drive-by garbage political memes. No conspiracy theory rants. Links to crackpot sites will be axed, too. Trolling and shitposting will not be tolerated. No obsessive behavior about other users. Just don’t interact with folks you don’t like. 
  • Do not be a sucker and feed trolls! That’s as much on you as on them. Use the mute button if you don’t like what you see.  
  • So unless you have something of quality to say, know how to treat people with respect, understand that everyone isn’t going to subscribe to your exact same worldview, and have come to terms with the reality that there is no perfect solution when it comes to moderation of a community like this, it’s probably best to just move on. 
  • Finally, as always, report offenders, please. This doesn’t mean reporting people who don’t share your political views, but we really need your help in this regard.

The Bunker is open!
