Re: Hello Again

Considering that you managed to get airborne and RASP, I'm surprised you didn't default to needs of the army after being disqualified from your original MOS. I've heard so many nightmare stories about people getting an 11x option 40 and getting stuck in the 82nd airborne or being assigned something...

Re: Hello Again

MOS = Military Occupational Specialty (Job in the military) 25S is my MOS Identifier, it essentially means "Satellite Communications Operator/Maintainer" AIT = Advanced Individual Training, which is where I learn how to work in my MOS. PRK = Photorefractive Keratectomy) is a type of refrac...

Hello Again

I have completed Basic Training! I actually ended up having to choose a different MOS. I was disqualified for flight due to my eyesight. However, I'm eligible for PRK, so once I've done that I can try again. For the time being, I'm a 25S, Satellite Communications Operator/Maintainer with Airborne an...

One of them has a big ass gun bolted under its nose. Not judging of course, just curious.


Okay, I'd actually be fine with either. Apache was an extremely close second choice.

Re: Goodbye

I'm joining the Army for several reasons. (not in any particular order) 1.) Several key role models in my life served in the military. 2.) Military discipline appeals to me. 3.) I am not afraid of combat, I look forward to it. 4.) Flying is near and dear to my heart, I want to fly helicopters. Prefe...

I don't know how the military works but promise me that if you ever get the opportunity to get a codename you make it "Renegado"


Genius.

Goodbye

I am leaving everything to enlist into the United States Army (MOS 153A: Rotary Wing Aviator.) While I definitely have had my disagreements with ESOC and it's staff at times, I tip my hat to them for their tenacity to maintain a community attached to a dying game. I had my fun here. I will remember ...

Fashion: Suspenders

To the best of my knowledge, suspenders were widely considered to be strictly an undergarment up until the early 20th century. Those of you who keep up with the fashion scene, what are your thoughts? I've attached a photo of myself, sporting suspenders as a fashion statement, as opposed to merely a ...

Re: Philosophical: Purge

You are assuming that people wouldn't do what they always do: find ways to play the system. Doesn't matter if it's 5% or 50%, the ones ending up dead would be the ones who have other things to do or aren't able to play the system, which means the poor as someone already said, whatever currency this...

Re: Philosophical: Purge

You'd be so much worse off, businesses wouldn't have people to sell stuff to or to employ, and you would need to keep retraining people because your previous employees were purged. Also you would have constant attempts at uprisings when people's families were killed I don't think this would be the ...

Re: Philosophical: Purge

In the end you'd probably have people with an IQ of 140 working in factories or cleaning the streets. Is this quest for a high IQ population really necessary? I can see the benefit of avoiding overpopulation but it ends there. This is basically like asking if society would have less stuff to handle...

why not implement something like china's one child per family rule? Clearly, that isn't effective for China. If China which is grossly overpopulated was to institute a Purge Program, they could quickly get their population under control. Additionally, the liquidated assets of the purged would be us...

Re: Philosophical: Purge

Well this wasn't perhaps worded in the best manner. Country sets ideal population limit. Yearly, anyone 21+ takes a test. Lowest scores are purged to bring country back to ideal population limit. You are getting the inherent benefits of an ideal population, as well as a higher median intelligence le...

The bottom 50% of that Test would be Purged - their assets liquidated and used to fund public education. Provisions would be made to prevent dropping below a certain population level, allowing for...
