Every marine I've meet from the lowest boot to staff sargents are terrible at FPS games.

Usually a combination of bad FPS skills and playing too real as opposed to the guns blazing no care for life style FPS games have.

Top rank is of course Napoleon.
But seriously though, isn't it just general?

and Maz, you have done national service right? Is it like, 50% of the guys over 18 are chosen (=forced) to do that in Denmark?

Staff Sergeant (E6).

Highest rank would be a five star General.

There hasn't been a General of the Army (5 Star General) appointed since Gen. Omar Bradley in 1950, and that was only so that Bradley (a 4 Star General and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) wouldn't be out-ranked by Gen. Eisenhower, who got his 5th star in WWII. And if you want to talk about saluting someone and not just being able to pull rank, every rank in the service salutes someone with the Congressional Medal of Honor. Unfortunately, most of those are given out posthumously.

About 50% are declared fit for service, but there's not enough money to take in everyone (and no reason).

Once you turn 18, you get called in for the tests. If you're permanently disabled for some reason, either mentally or physically (requires a diagnose), you're put through a number of tests, including an IQ test (hurrr, we ain't got no dumasses shootin dem gunz). If you pass those tests, you get to draw a number from a tombola, or something like that. If you draw a number within a certain range, you get signed up, if you don't, you walk away.

Of course, some people decide to not do military service if they get signed up. They get to spend some time collecting trash, directing traffic, gathering oil spills and the likes. Some people also choose to postpone their service due to school (age 18 is about the time you finish our high school equivalent here), family or whatever. And then there are the volunteers like me.

I originally drew a number in the buffer zone, meaning I was allowed to choose whether I'd sign up or not. I chose not to at the time, because I wanted to get on with my education, but I later signed up as a volunteer when I took a sabbatical year from school.

Unless you choose to serve in the Royal Guard, you only spend four months in the service. Royal Guards spend a year because they have to learn how to tie their shoelaces and polish their shoes so they look real nice.

I'm glad I decided to sign up. Easily one of the best experiences I've ever had, even if physically and mentally exhausting at times.

Nub.

There, I did it again.

Sucks how rank doesn't matter in real life, huh? Smiley: tongue

In other news, I passed all my exams and can now go back to my regular schedule of ingesting alcoholic beverages and being indecent towards the ladies again.

Here national service is manadatory to all males over 18 years old.
I spent 6 weeks in the military and then decided that it was of no use.

So I choose that, but instead of doing none of the above, I spent 11 months working in a library instead, which was awesome. I really liked it.
Not that military would've been tough, it was just rather useless.

To contribute something to the other conversation, I'm temporarily of the opinion some sort of compulsory public/military service would do our country good.

Ew, f*ck that.

Me and the military would NOT mix well. I have way too many issues with the way ours is run for us to be compatible.

I do, however, think that it wouldn't be so bad if everyone was required to spend a year working in some kind of service oriented job. And I mean jobs that will make them work with people, so they can understand how much other humans can suck on a day to day basis (and learn how their own habits can be incredibly annoying to others).

Seriously, everyone spending just one year working in a restaurant, a Dunkin Donuts, a clothing store, etc. would probably be hugely beneficial to our society.

Yeah, I can't imagine you'd be a good mix for our military. I bet you could do 11 months in a library though. Smiley: wink A year working fast food made me avoid the place for about 6 years. That and I despise people who think they can drive up to Jack in the Box at like 8pm and order 40 tacos.

I'd love to work in a library. And it would give me ample opportunity to figure out how to make "shh" sound so threatening. :D

And seriously, people need to learn how incredibly annoying they can be. Requiring them to take jobs in a service position to others would be hugely beneficial there. Especially rich ******* from NYC. >:(

I've largely worked in service jobs in a NJ beach town, so I see a lot of them.

Yeah, that's how I feel too. Plus I don't handle people yelling at me in my face very well. I'd either want to punch them or start crying. >.>

I'd want to punch them in the face, but I'm way too much of a pushover to actually do it, lol.

Also, with this post I am officially in the top 100 posters. :D TAKE THAT GALKAMAN.

If you swung at me, I'd be the one to get in trouble if I swung back. Automatic, no questions asked. I'd be in a lot of trouble. So my corrective action would be to have you stand up front where everyone can see you, and punish them for an hour. All the while asking if you were comfortable and if you'd like a drink. I mean being really, borderline disturbingly, nice to you, and being brutal to everyone else.

Yeah... and that's the kind of **** I have an issue with. It works great for sure, but it's messed up. Plus I consider myself to be a free spirit, I really don't think I'd fit in to the culture of the military. They don't exactly encourage free thinking there.

Don't get me wrong, I do respect people who are in the military and all that, it's just not for me.

What happens in the barracks after lights out, stays in the barracks. For the socially well-adjusted, group punishment reinforces the idea that if you ***** up, it's not just you that may end up getting shot. For the not-so-socially well-adjusted, well, that's what soap parties are for. Had a couple almost-brawls in the barracks, but that was mostly the delinquents that kept getting in trouble with the local PD off-post. One particular #$%! even got arrested for drunk-and-disorderly. ***-hole made the whole company look bad.

Yes, but that's different than your commanding officer punishing the rest of the crew for something that one singular individual did. Especially in the case that Digg and I mentioned, where we'd want to punch someone screaming in our face. Sure, it's not appropriate to actually do that, but when someone is screaming in your face your adrenaline skyrockets and you tend to lose some control over your actions. Some people lose all control and go on auto-pilot attack mode.

Some *** wipe going out and getting drunk and embarrassing himself and his crew, I totally understand the purpose and desire of the rest of the crew ganging up on that person and teaching them a lesson.

Collective punishment isn't allowed here. As a rule, punishment does not exist in the Danish military, unless the wrongdoing was bad enough to warrant building a case over (i.e. illegality). To quote our Draft Service wiki article:

Quote:
Dvs. at det aldrig er den overordnede berettiget at udstede f.eks. armstrækkere med mindre det er uddannelsesrelevant under f.eks. en militær fysisk trænings lektion.


Basically it says that the superior isn't allowed to give out punishment (collective or individual), like push-ups, unless relevant to the education, for instance during a physical exercise course. The rule was made to prevent this **** from happening.

Our military is mostly for show and they want the military service to be a positive experience. Sergeants still hand out rewards, though, and you can't really refuse a reward, right? Mostly they're push-ups, or redoing something annoying (chemical self-cleaning during ABC drill - brrr). It's all done with a smile, because in the end, you did something wrong and the guilt outweighs the annoyance. Besides, the sergeants maintain a pretty good social relationship with the privates. They know that mutual respect makes the course run smoother than if they played tough guys. Especially when some of the people they'd be bossing around are bigger and older than them.

Those at the sergeant and constable academies are allegedly drilled pretty hard, but once they join the "firm" it stops. The military is a company like any other. Can't bully around your employees or they'd just quit. Or file a lawsuit. Or do both.
