Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, you write a lot about military careers, and I could use some advice. I want to be able to wear a whole bunch of medals, to impress the chicks.
So you’re saying you want to see lots of combat and earn medals of honor and valor and purple hearts and stuff?
I don’t wanna see combat at all. I just want a butt-load of medals.
Ah, then move to Britain and serve there. Look at this photo. Prince Charles did five years in their military, and look at the medals and braid and geegaws he has.
Yes! That’s what I’m talking about! What did he have to do for those?
No, sometimes you actually catch a brief glimpse of gun, in places like Georgia.
Blog Guy, I’ve read about the so-called “nuclear football” that goes everywhere with the U.S. President in case he needs to authorize a nuclear war. Are there any pictures of this doomsday gadget?
Photos of the super-secret device are very rare, but we got some at the White House a couple of days ago. Here you go.
Blog Guy, I’ve noticed that every time you offer career advice about the military, all you do is write about the jobs you consider crappy. Are there ANY good jobs?
Well, I’m in trouble now.
Awhile back, the Defense Department told me to make our military capability the best in the world. I looked for bargains, because who wants to waste tax dollars?
Blog Guy, my daughter hasn’t decided on a career. You give great job advice, and you’ve even named the worst job in the world. Could you remind me what that was?
Blog Guy, are you a licensed psychiatrist?
It depends. I am in some states, just not in the really picky ones. How can I help?
Blog Guy, military tactics is one of your areas of expertise. Can you update us on which countries are trying anything new and innovative in warfare?
That island in the Mediterranean? Whatever for?
They base their defense tactics on classic cartoons, which of course is brilliant.
Blog Guy, I have a science question for you. Is gravitational pull exactly the same everywhere on Earth?
Yes. Apart from China’s Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, of course.
WHAT? I don’t know anything about that!
As you can see here, for some reason they have virtual weightlessness, and residents learn to just float from one place to the next.
