    the way i see it... get a life dude and stop getting all high and mighty on an internet message board. If you don't like a guys question ignore it, enough with your condescending attitude telling people how your a stone cut from the old school and they need to work harder. I can see your gonna be the guy that gets on everybody's nerves.

    Hey all,
    Just got a letter in the mail today about the physical preparation at the rock. The one thing I noticed is that the preparation dates at the rock are the same dates as the cpat orientation in Long Island City....whats up with that? I notice the times are different but what if the Orientation in LIC takes a while. Leave it up to the city

    Oh and for the people who never polished a boot in their life, here's some tips. Being in the military taught me a thing or two about shining. you dont have to load the wax on there, just enough to see it. LET IT DRY...if you start to buff the wax before it settles in to the leather you're just taking wax right back off. Use water when you buff it out because the water will repel the wax and keep it from coming off. It will look like you're getting nowhere at first...keep rubbing the wax into the leather. It will start to shine. Another thing you can do is take a lighter or heat gun...blow torch...anything that is hot, and after you get some wax on your boot shoot some heat at it. This will melt the wax into the crevices in the leather and then make sure you let it dry again. Then buff it out. When you're done you'll be able to shave in your damn steel toe. 15 minutes after you wear them your boots are F'd up anyways, but just go home and do it again. It lets people know that you go the extra mile. Finally--don't tell the DI's--mop and glow. It does wonders and makes your shine last a long time. I don't know how probie school works so I'm not sure how big of a deal the boots shining thing is...but if it's like basic, make sure they're shiny as hell

    I didn't ask if the FDNY pays me for my schooling ...

    2nd I served my country for 5yrs ... While you was shooting hoops in ur local park ..... I was shooting my m16 ... You can't F with me ur just a civilian.


    BTW for the record I'm not here to pick on / fight with any of you ... You never know I might have to save your a** one day or you might save mine.
    Good luck to all. Like I said b4 it just came out hard.

    Wrong again, tough guy. I spent 6 years active duty and 4 reserve in the Marine infantry. Throw in a tour in Iraq with that. Guarantee I was honorably discharged long before your little shavetail a** even so much as set foot in a recruiting office. and I've definitely sent more lead down range than you have. I am more than qualified to "F with you". You asked if you're gonna get your pick of houses; if that ain't a square rooter question I don't know what is. Worse than asking about money for education. Someone else here said it; you are gonna be the guy that gets on everybody's nerves

    Good luck to all. Like I said b4 it just came out hard.
    How the h** do you make a statement like that and then turn around and say you weren't picking a fight? You think you're the only guy on this thread with military time? You jumped all over a guy and dropped terms FDNY vets use and you haven't even been called to the Rock yet. All for asking the same sort of questions you've asked. How are you not trying to pick on anyone? You wouldn't know what old school was if it jumped up and jack-slapped you across the back of the head. Either get it together or as Calm B4 told you, you will be eaten alive. I now happily wash my hands of this nonsense.

    No sweat. A Marine or soldier who isn't a cocky little arrogant SOB is of no use to anyone. I shouldn't have opened my mouth in the first place so I apologize if anything I said was out of line. Best of luck to you.

    Uh, I don't recall sending anything your way but for the record, little jokes have a tendency to exacerbate little incidents and turn them into something that ends a bit more serious than it started. Next time, if you don't want to bear witness to any unpleasantness, maybe think about not including yourself in said unpleasantness. As I said. I'm done with this. If you were upset by the whole exchange I apologize to you as well. Good luck.

    wow...this guy used words like:
    "recall", "tendency", "exacerbate", "incidents", "unpleasantness", and "apologize". you should stay on P.D.

    Good luck to Everyone! Enjoy the academy!

    Exclamation What's going on here??

    I should know better not to get involved, but I have to throw in my $.02
    I think that I speak for everyone here, regardless of our status, that this is an informational forum used to help and support each other throughout this stressful ordeal..

    I know that tempers are flaring and emotions are high, but we have to cut the crap out. Some things were said and I know that 99.999% of us here, especially the FDNY veterans, don't want to read this nonsense.

    Don't give people the ammunition they need they take us down. It is already common knowledge / perception that people coming off the 6019 list are sh*tbags. By exhibiting this kind of behavior on an open forum, we are proving them right.

    Let's lock it up and keep it moving. We are all adults here, please let's act like it. Thank you for your time.

    Congrats to all of us about to start. ive been following this thread since it started and its been very helpful.
    I went to one of those specialty running stores before the academy and was recommended the Brooks Beast.
    By FAR the best running shoe I've ever owned. Shin splints were of little problem to me during the academy. Plus, once you get there, you'll see a lot of the Fitness Unit staff use the same shoe. And a lot of them swear by it too.

    D'oh! Ah well, nice find. Day late/dollar (or in my case $23) short for me, but hopefully some other guys will be able to take advantage of that.

    Boombahtz, thanks for posting what you did about shining the shoes. That how-to stuff is real helpful. Ive polished shoes to restore a decent look to them before, but never for any kind of inspection (at least not anything more indepth than my own 'nice-from-5-ft' test). Ill go to work on them tonight, see what I can do with them.

    Anyone going into the July class have a weight vest they want to get rid of? I need one of those and they are damn expensive.
