Yea, they will probably replace it with a professional army. I'd rather have 10,000 conscripts than 3,000 professionals, though.
It depends on where you live. In the southernmore parts, it's definitely worth it. Awesome girls and such. It's quite expensive, though.
I'll check the news today if they mention it. WOuld be weird if they didnt.
Wow, conscription in a Western country seems quite odd, but I guess I learn something new everyday I had a workmate from Sweden, he always stressed the fact that the clubbing scene over there is something worth checking out. Is it true about this, and the gorgeous blonde girls?
Wow, kind of thought the Australian bushfires would be worldwide news. They are quite easily the worst in the history of Australia, maybe even the world. We're looking at the death toll to top 300. Very grim mood in the air down under right now...
We have conscription up here, so the only way for me to join the army 100% is if I become an officer, which I have no plans to do, yet. We'll see later on. Firefighting overall is very difficult to get accepted to. You need very good grades from school, a very good physique, etc.
Actually, I got to know about the Aussie bushfires from TWC. The news hasn't relayed anything, which is odd.
Strewth, that's a pretty hectic schedule for you! So you planning on being in the army or a firefighter as a future career? It's very difficult to get into urban firefighting in Australia, is this the same in Sweden? Guessing you heard about the tragedy in my neck of the woods, I'm waiting for a phone call to go down and help my fellow Aussies with the bushfire..
I hate those people. Nah, right now I'm doing excersises with the firefighters, but as of July 27, I'm doing military duty for 327 days, then I'm off to firefighter training again.
BAHAHAHA!!! I laughed so hard my boss caught me on the internet and chewed my ear off! But it was worth it So are you volunteer firefighting or professional?
My feelings exactly. Aside from Paris Hilton, lots of great people were born that day too. Such as you and me, for example.(Noone else crossed my mind)
Oh God, kill me now...
That's awesome man! We also share it with Paris Hilton, unfortunately..
Holy crap dude, we share the exact same birthday!! I'm sure you know that we also share it with Michael Jordan. And we both do firefighting . . . weird :hmmm:
