Broke open the qsource this week and the intro contained a good enough nugget to share with the pax today. Leadership is a skill that requires honing. It is not like a square jaw or receding hairline (thank you very much) that you’re simply born (blessed) with. Sure, some guys may seem to possess traits that make them better “natural” leaders but don’t let it discourage you. F3 is a great source of leadership training. Get into the Q Source and if you haven’t q’d a workout I highly recommend it!


Burrito brought his A+ jokes to the gloom today. Fairly certain he owns a weed eater.

Burrito does a mean Napoleon Dynamite impression.

It was pretty miserably cold today but after five minutes who can really tell. Right?
