So I just went to my 'session' to see if I was qualified enough for military service in Denmark. You don't really have a choice in Denmark, because everyone has to serve unless they are conscientious objectors. And seeing as I could probably learn something from being in the military instead of picking up trash on the streets, I decided not to be a conscientious objector. About half of the Danish youth don't live up to the standards.

So curse my excellent eye sight, hearing, mental abilities, and physical fitness.

The upside is, there isn't enough spots for everyone, so we have to draw numbers. I won't find out if my number was 'lucky' until August. But let's hope I can avoid 4 months of living on a military base.

Agreeing with RXP doesn't make your opinion as respectable.

And RXP, there are definitely things I could learn in the military. I just would rather not go in the military.

then you go on to bitch about not wanting to be in the military, if you wanna learn something from the aramy fine, if not then why sign up you could have been a conscientious objector?

There that a more valid respose?

I explained why I don't want to be a conscientious objector. Because it'd be the same amount of time doing even more menial work. It's not truly a matter of choice here. I can pick up trash in the city or do it in a military base.

Crap. Compulsory here too. My friend in Russia bribed his doctor. =p Because Russian military is no good. And phew, I was happy he did not go. And I had a good laugh because he's a hilarious dude.

aren't you intelligent enough to be part of an intelligence corps? hence not as dangerous.

If you don't wanna serve, then object. I'm sure your social and political views don't go along with the general attitude expected in a soldier.

I was in special forces and it was damn tough, but I don`t regret my choice, I got a few life lasting friends and loads of awesome experiences of how much pain and mental pressure a man can actually take before loosing his mind. no, I`m not a masochist. it`s just so great to outdo your own limits and find new sides of yourself. know yourself.

those are the exact arguments we use to justify the first period in which you *try* to become a member of our fraternity/sorority.
