He will down here in'all.
It's 'an'all' ya northerner manque.

Have ya got 50 yet? Did you get Reef and Veggie?
But pronounced down here as "in'all".

Reef, yes, Veg is on radio silence. Allegedly cos of some gay accounting exams that are only gonna change his life forever for the better, or some shit. Or maybe jsut cos he's an EVIL BUGGER.
It's honestly strange to picture him going to work in a dark suit to mess around with spreadsheets for a living. In my mind he's still a young schoolboy with an Elton John fixation.

Not sure they would have given YOU any money anyway,,,,
That's not my point. My point is that my talents might have laid in areas where I can earn money, as opposed to the waste of time known as the Humanities.
You could have joined the military and got yourself an in to lucrative government work. In fact, you might still, depending on how this thesis turns out.
What, and be in a troop where all two hundred of us have to take turns to share the one rifle?

It's not so bad. It's not like Britain is going to war anytime soon. :P

It IS adrenaline filled.

My Mum: art, books.
My Dad: sports, banter.

Those were their talents and interests.

Why couldn't they have been into maths, science, and business? Fuck me. LOL

Nature nurture blah blah blah. You still would have had to work hard instead of masturbating and playing BG.

We're at war all the fucking time. Whenever someone says anything to hurt Amewica's feewings, we have to mobilise our peashooters, catapults, and a trebuchet we have stashed somewhere.

Hurt their feelings? What you on about? America likes to manufacture wars, say like, in Vietnam, so that hundreds of thousands can die and a few get very rich. Their feelings don't come in to it.

You tag along whenever America undergoes a significant military operation, but your actual deployed troop presence is a whole lot smaller. The odds of you getting shot are quite slim, especially if you get yourself an office job (which, incidentally, are the jobs that set you up for government work)

PREACH!

Although, ever since the end of the Cold War, America's primary motivations for fighting abroad have been: (1) Destabilizing Muslim nations to benefit our so-called "ally" Israel (see: Iraq, Syria, probably Iran in the near future), and (2) Avoiding the stigma of defeat (i.e. Why we're still fighting in Afghanistan after 17 fucking years).

The cost in blood and treasure far outweighs any benefit America might gain. Yeah, arms manufacturers rake in money, and PMCs do quite well, but they are not so powerful as to keep forcing America into conflicts where nothing is gained.

hahaha. Get a grip, Rey. Our forces are chronically underfunded due to crap Governments, but we still have one of the top forces in the world. Try having your next war without Britain's "tag along" support. AHAHAHA.

Since when did you care about the military? Hahahahahahahah

Our 'enemies' go round in circles, like fashion. Sometimes the government can't even decide who the hell they are anyway. There's just got to be an enemy hasn't there? Always. It''s all bollocks.
