Going to the military, brb
« on: July 12, 2009, 03:57:04 pm »
As a lot of you probably know, military service is mandatory for every finnish male. Technically, of course, you could also do a year of civil service or go to prison, but neither of those really appeal to me so tomorrow I'm going to make my way to the bus station and then proceed to spend most of my time for at least six months in a forest, being shouted at. If all goes well I'll be there for the whole year.

I definitely won't have a lot of time to hang around on forums in the beginning, except when I get home on the occasional weekend, and I don't know if I'll try to get permission to take my laptop with me to the base even if I get a lot of bore-time at some point.

So yeah, bye.





On second thought, this should not affect the frequency of my posting a whole lot.

You better be on at weekends, biatch!

Also: have fun!
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

Good luck and have fun. Protip from a former army conscript: show a positive attitude, and you'll have an easier time of it. The people in charge tend to notice such things, and will automatically be more friendly towards you as well (which is a good thing, because these people can make your stay truly miserable if they dislike you).

Casualty rates during national service in the scandinavian countries are low to non-existent ;)

Also: I will!

Shouldn't be too much trouble, to be honest. :P

Good luck! :(
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Bah! Fight the power! Rebel against the shackles of your opressors! You get a gun - use it! Become Finlands Che Guavara (then come over to Norway and get shot by the CIA). Or just do as me and lack motivation.

Yeah, I kinda dislike such a strong top-down hiearchy as in the army... ;D

Another pro-tip, from an ex-conscript: Don't get a desk job. While it's easier, it's in-fucking-sanely boring.

Low, not non-existent. People drown and get hit by cars and shit like that wherever you are.

Yes, but not as a matter of policy, which was kinda my point :P
