I'm sorry I couldn't resist. But seriously I feel like you were just arguing with yourself. He wasn't contributing at all.

I love it

It is a lost cause. He believes his satirical rants somehow override logic.

I stand with no one party. I base my beliefs off morale convictions; not ignorant assumptions.

:sad:

I've been thinking about joining that, but my AF enlistment is this year so it'd be a waste to try to join now.

Thats awesome! My bad vision killed my aspirations to be a pilot in the AF. But that program gave me experiences most dont even have on their bucket list.

Signed up for the Marine Corps in 2002 but a wild graduation party had my recruiter seeing red when they tested....

Met a girl and fell head over heels making him more irate. Girl turned out crazy (took everything I owned) before moving out of state.

Not a day goes by that I dont regret going. I still feel like I was MEANT to be a soldier. I have my life and a family now. Cant let these guys down being fatherless myself.

Congrats btw. I bet your livid with excitment

Reason I never joined the military is because I wanted to do one of two things: fly attack helicopters or fly fighter jets.

And I doubt the Army or Air Force would appreciate it much if a pilot was looking at the floor of the cockpit trying to find his contact that just fell out. And lasik just scares the sh*t out of me.

Yeah I know for a fact I won't be a pilot. I have an astigmatism in my left eye that prevents me from becoming a pilot.

It's the fact that you still went out of your way to try to serve your country, makes you better than the rest. So many people just sit on their rears b*tching and complaining about the country. It takes true brave people to actually dedicate themselves to their country. Hey, it may not have worked out, but you still have my respect.

Oh yeah I'm really excited and nervous at the same time. I haven't even swallowed the fact that I'm most likely going into the military, and I'm already excited. It'll be weird to have so much change in so little time.

You could always be one of the people that shoot from the helicopters.

Oh yeah Lasik is a total no-go for me. Call me a baby but I've watched how they perform the surgery and it does not look like a big bowl of joy.

It's actually changed quite a bit over the past few years. Knives are no longer used and PPRK i believe it is and others solely use lasers now.

I had heard that this new surgery was approved for pilots; no risk of peeling at high gs because no incisions are made.

Is this correct???
