    The military is a good idea though, if you need a good word putting in then I know some people.
    Seriously, bored with life and job and I like the idea. My grandfather was a nava gunner in W2. They took down a few nazi subs. Althought, weirdly he never talked about it. I need to do something. Aargh, if you're not taking the piss for once, the help would be good.
    I'm actually not :)

    Go to a local recruitment office this afternoon, based on what little I know about you I would suggest the Army might be a good fit but talk to the guys there and they'll be very helpful. The military can be great and there aren't many that come out with bad stories about their time - drinking, adventure, being looked after.

    You really would love it.

    You know the military will contribute to any education you want, sometimes paying for degrees? They're very keen on encouraging your development.

    The military sounds alright, apart from the war bit. I think I'd go on the submarines (not those new rusty ones though).

    Not every soldier in the army goes on the front lines. I know loads who haven't even been on tour.

    Why are you helping me?
    Because I'm actually nice. I don't want to see you drifting along for another ten years and then realise you've missed the life you could have had, all the time killing your liver on your own.

    Go down to that office this afternoon, sign up, then spend the evening watching all your favourite military films.

    Unless you go for infantry you'll rarely, if ever be in serious danger. It might get a little hairy but just think of the adrenaline rush and the stories you'll be able to tell over a few pints.

    That's good progress, you really should go to one of their offices too. You're in Manchester aren't you?

    Go for it. My dad was in the raf and he got to experience some amazing places and things. As kids we got to experience all different cultures and countries

    Do it, fruit. I think it's exactly the type of change that you need in your life.

    Plus I think we will all sleep a little better knowing you're protecting us.

    Had a few friends that went in from school - the ones still in love it and the ones that came out were held in high regard when they went for other stuff.

    At what point are you not allowed to change your mind? :)
  • Deleted user 17 November 2012 12:13:50
    We're proud you've got this far fruit. Make sure you follow through with it - just think of what you have now and how awesome it will be.

    Military career is good. You get your arse-whipped into shape, get to travel the world, meet interesting people, get shot by them and get a decent military burial.

    I have to say I'm proud of you, fruit. Damn proud. Should be a great experience for you :)

    Well you should be able to win the drinking contests, at the very least. So you'll leave a rich man!
