Actually, that submit new thread button was getting rusty, so I just thought this up. Secondly, is there anyone here interested in the military. I don't know, but I may just join Air Force (Hell and I'm afraid of hights!). What jogs my insperation is my ROTC unit... I could really get some serious rank in the Air Force. Is anyone like me?

I almost thought about this once, and then I realized that the idiots I'm protecting aren't worth my own life. No, actually, they wouldn't accept me, as much as I'd like to, because of all my health problems. It's a nice dream though, so long as there's no death involved.
I was seriously thinking about joining the Canadian military (yes we have one, almost unfortunately) but I decided I could do better use of my time than to train to use 50+ y/o helicopters (google Sea King Helicopters)
Actually, I want to shoot people... but I don't want people to shoot ME!
Wow, that has to be the most spineless thing, ever. I mean seriously, if you join the armed forces you are protecting your country. People usually see that as what they are doing. They feel good that their friends and families will have a safer country. But you, you just wanna kill some people?! That's horrible. Why don't you become a terrorist you bastard.
Though, I agree with him Hungry Gamer, that is a very foolish statement. If you want to join the Armed Forces just to shoot someone as 'fun', you don't deserve to be in the Armed Forces. Those men join there as an act of bravery only to protect their country and the people of the country, not for the fun of war, and that is the only reason you should join. You obviously don't understand the horror of war, the terrible thing called 'battle'. Killing someone is wrong, no matter what the situation. The only time where it's rightful is if to protect the lives of others in an extremley dire situation. Those men go out there and fight, and kill, but do they enjoy it? No. Do they enjoy shooting people? Not at all. They even know that their killing is slightly wrong, but it must be done, it is the only way. War is a grisly thing, it is evil beyond anything else, a form of Satan in my eyes. You lack integrity if you believe that shooting and killing an enemy is 'fun'
I highly suggest you think over what you've said, and your outlook on all of this
There's a difference between simply being innovative and being creative, and Zelda is a completely creative series
Meh, I don't want to join the military, but if I wanted to(or had to*shudder*), I'd go with the Air Force seeing as I'd love to fly a plane. That or the Army as an engineer soldier, seeing as I want to take up enginerring as one of my majors in college.
Oh and if Ii wanted to join, it'd be if my country got attacked full-on like in Peral Harbor. So there, questions anwsered.
I am, to an extent, considering enlistment when I get older. Only if we at a time of peace though. It is human nature to mot wish to kill. I would never, if possible. Unfortunately, we live in a world full of bastards which requires us to invade or be at risk.
It's basically suicide. You join the military, you're going to Iraq to fight with the rest of them. If you die, you're a hero. If you live, you go back and fight some more, then die a hero.
It's not a good idea, let's just pray Bush doesn't bring back the draft, then my peers and I are in big trouble. I know we should do it to defend out country, but do most regular people WANT to fight in war. I think not.
I could join the Army or the Marines or whatever, but I don't have any immediate plans to do so in the future. I don't have any problems with seeing people die, since I've seen my share of it during my life.
