    I'm pretty certain Lorena Bobbit was a Columbian. Not that it really matters, all Latinas are dangerous if you cheat on them. :sick:

    I'd say those are pretty respectable times if you've only been at it a month. 3-4 days a week is about the max I'd suggest. Slowly push it up to 18-minutes or less and you'll be doing really well.

    What is 3432?

    If it requires a security clearance, then no, you won't be allowed to ask for the 34xx field. You must be a US citizen to hold a security clearance.
