I live in ****** up Russia where you HAVE TO JOIN THE ARMY starting from 18 and until 27 years for 1 year. If you avoid duty you gonna go to jail for up to 2 years or pay fine. But good thing that our police is a bunch of lazy ******* and they don't give a **** about guys who avoid. Anyway there's nothing to do in our army because it gives nothing... except service contract or how do you call it. My english sucks, Hope you got me.

Atleast you are forced to do something. In America people can sit around doing nothing collecting welfare and selling drugs. I mean i understand that you hate it personally because you're a smart guy, knowing two languages, you should be exempt but... stupid people need to be conscripted.

actually in the case of the U.K you can join the army at the age of 15 years and 10 months but you cant be deployed until you are 18 years of age except on some rare cases like world war or a exceptional soldier

are you retarded?
User avatar #38 to #35 - daburger (07/29/2012) [-]
No, you have to be 35 years old to be President. 30 to be a Federal Senator. 30 to be a Governor. 25 to be a Federal Representative. State legislation depends on the individual state, with the lowest being 18 and the highest being 25.

Fun fact: Teddy " ************ " Roosevelt was the youngest President at 42, and John Kennedy was the youngest to be elected to be position at age 43.

Yeah, because everyone who plays Black Ops is over 18...

its actually about 67% but there is less chance of running into someone with a mic on black ops now

Worse still, forced to sign up for selective service at 18, can't drink until 21.
User avatar #40 to #33 - grieze (07/29/2012) [-]
forced? you're not forced to join any branch of the U.S. military, that would mean you being drafted, which has ended since WW2. however there is a contract that when the US is in great danger and needs men to fight the draft will reinstate itself but this can only happen if the next world war will start.
User avatar #231 to #40 - thepalmtoptiger (07/30/2012) [-]
Do you not know what the selective service is? Go google it and save yourself embarrassment in future situations.
User avatar #232 to #231 - grieze (07/30/2012) [-]
dude that's what i was talking about...
User avatar #233 to #232 - thepalmtoptiger (07/30/2012) [-]
No ******* **** , but you wrote that comment like I was wrong. The correct name for "the draft" is the Selective Service System which you are forced to register in lest you receive fines or jail time. While people aren't actively being selected the system still does exist and it is completely ******** that you can be potentially forced to kill and die for your country, yet you are not treated like an adult.
User avatar #234 to #233 - grieze (07/30/2012) [-]
what do you mean treated like an adult?
User avatar #235 to #234 - thepalmtoptiger (07/30/2012) [-]
You don't get the full privileges of being an adult, you can't buy cigarettes in many states until you are 19 and can't drink until 21.
User avatar #236 to #235 - grieze (07/30/2012) [-]
well now you're going into law and buying cigarettes and alcohol varies from state law and county law. an example is say i live in NYC the 5 boroughs are considered 1 county but are five separate ones but all of them have common interests. now the state passes a law saying that you have to be 18 to buy alcohol but the county does not have to agree with that law so they make the drinking age 21. due to bylaws and codes the state must recognize the counties laws so there fore if you are in NYC you must be 21 to drink. law vs adulthood is very specific. and saying that you do not get rights is not true, you do have the right to buy the alcohol its just the state law does not want you to do it so they enforce the law they make by making consequences for breaking that law.
User avatar #237 to #236 - thepalmtoptiger (07/30/2012) [-]
This is the most retarded thing I've ever read...

>I said that the law requires you to sign up for selective service but restricts your access to alcohol until you are 21.
>You said I was wrong.
>You said that that you must sign up for selective service at 18 but can not buy alcohol until 21.

I think this is implying that you have to join the army before you can handle the rustling of faggots on xbox live.
User avatar #37 to #32 - biomedic (07/29/2012) [-]
that's a hell worse than war.
User avatar #27 - fantomen (07/29/2012) [-]
Yeah, but you can't do any fighting until you're 18. Before that you just do laundry really really precisely for 2 years.
User avatar #25 - swittig (07/29/2012) [-]
cant drink until 21

can die in the desert at 18
User avatar #39 to #25 - daburger (07/29/2012) [-]
Well technically if you're in the army you're allowed to drink on base, which is really just a lame incentive to get people to join the armed forces.

When WWII broke out my grandpa lied about his age and joined up at 16.

Pshhh bitch my stories cooler. My dad was 6 when WWII broke out so he used to steal trucks and crash them into walls for fun.

That is pretty god damned badass. I salute your dad.
User avatar #22 to #21 - profarnsworth (07/29/2012) [-]
He would salute you back but then he'd probably be a zombie and id have to put him down.

17 with parental permission here. 18 otherwise. Nice try, faggot.
#4 to #1 - bnoble (07/29/2012) [-]
I don't know where this is but in the U.S. you have to be 17 to join the military, and even then only with parent permission. Also you can be 17 and buy M rated games.
#5 to #4 - Enriss (07/29/2012) [-]
I'm pretty sure you can enlist at 16 with the right job. For instance, training for nuclear technician lasts 2 years, so by the time you're done, you'd be 18.

because the army wants inexperienced teenagers working with radioactive substances,
#7 to #6 - Enriss (07/29/2012) [-]
Nuclear technicians actually don't handle anything radioactive. Pretty much they maintain all the equipment and monitor the reactor itself. Anything serious goes wrong, an engineer would have to look into it.

Though honestly, have you looked at the ASVAB or ever taken it? Any idiot could get a high enough score to qualify for nuclear technician. All you need to go for training is a high school diploma or equivalent, which is easily obtainable at 16, and high enough line scores in math and science and then they'll let you enlist.

The only reason I made an 87 on mine was that I didn't know **** about cars. They were asking me if I wanted to be a satellite tech, and some other really brainy jobs. I told them to take their fobbit jobs and shove 'em.

Airborne Infantry. Hooah.

@Enriss i actually have looked into the ASVAB, and you have a valid point it is incredibly easy and as for you anon, my best friend is ROTC and got a 100 on his so he couldve taken any job he wanted but he went for the airborne, i want to join the 82nd after he graduates from South Carolina
#29 to #10 - anon (07/29/2012) [-]
Pretty sure the highest possible score is 99. I don't know, I just listened to the DOD civilians monitoring the test at the MEPS office.
